Fall Premiere Dates Have Been Set For Fox

The premiere dates for new seasons of returning shows and the first episodes of new shows have given fall premiere dates by Fox. Fox seems to be getting on board a step ahead of the other major networks, with their first premiere coming on September 11, while shows on other networks do not start until late September, or even early October in a few cases, like with the CW. Eight shows which will air on Fox this fall are set to premiere at least a week ahead of the rest, giving them a chance for viewers to chime in early. The X Factor will kick things off on September 11, with a few newcomers to follow the next week including a fantasy drama called Sleepy Hollow and an Andy Samberg comedy called Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Fox will then take a bit of a break and return with the season premieres of The Simpsons and the sci-fi drama Almost Human

The popular shows Bones and New Girl also make their returns early on in the schedule. While Fox does not seem to be a network that generates many award nominations or recognition from critics, it seems to have always been a network where cult shows are born, and maybe that will happen to one of the new shows this year. The Simpsons and Family Guy have both remained very popular over the years and newer animated comedies like American Dad and Bob's Burgers have also found success. Premiere dates range from September 11 to November 8.
