The premieres for the a slew of new FOX series’, including The X-Files and Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens, were announced today, along with the network’s Fall 2015-2016 schedule.
The new scheduled was unveiled today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs, Fox Television Group. Later this year and early into 2016, the network will welcome one new comedy horror anthology, four new comedies, four new dramas and a new event series to their programming lineup, and we can hardly wait.
“Building on the phenomenal momentum created by Gotham, The Last Man on Earth and, of course, Empire, we’re infusing next season’s schedule with new ambitious dramas, smart comedies, aspirational unscripted series and big live events and specials – all from the best creators in the business,” said Walden and Newman at the unveiling. “And our strategy with these bold creative swings is simple: schedule them strategically, market them relentlessly and create events that break through and captivate viewers across every platform.”
Fans of The X-Files will be happy to learn that the next mind-bending chapter will debut with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT). The premiere will follow the NFC Championship Game, and will continue with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). As many fans know, this marks the return of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, along with many other original castmates and production members.
Tuesdays are all-new this fall on FOX, with new comedy-horror series Scream Queens, which premieres after comedies Grandfathered and The Grinder. In the new Ryan Murphy helmed series, all hell is about to break loose for the Kappa House sisters of Wallace University when a murder takes place, exactly 20 years after a mysterious death originally rocked their college campus. The anthology series is a modern take on the classic whodunit. .
