The Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour is underway and Moviefone sat in for the panels at Fox's day to present their upcoming roster of programming. We got some scoop on new shows and returning favorites -- here are the highlights!
1. 3 TV Favorites Get Pick Ups
It was announced yesterday that "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will get a third season, and newbies "Empire" and Gotham" will be back for Season 2. Yay!
Fox's live "Grease" musical has found its female leads! Julianne Hough will play Sandy and Vanessa Hudgens will be Rizzo. The event will air on January 31, 2016.
3. "Scream Queens" Gets a Cast
The comedy/horror anthology from "Glee" showrunner Ryan Murphy also revealed its amazing roster of talent. Lea Michele, Joe Manganiello, Keke Palmer, and Abigail Breslin are all attached. Plus, Ariana Grande is set to guest star.
4. Changes for "Sleepy Hollow"
Fox Chairman Dana Waldenweighed in on the fate of the fan favorite. "We're excited about some creative changes on the show and bringing it back to something that feels a little more episodic in nature, that has closure and doesn't feel quite so serialized," she explained.
The truth is out there ... probably. Fox CEO Gary Newman revealed the network is in talks to revive the mega-hit, but he also pointed out the difficulties due to actor schedules. "We're hopeful of being able to bring that back at some point," he said.
6. "Prison Break" Reboot?
Newman said they would bring back the drama "in a heartbeat."
7. More "24," Too
"We would love nothing more than to do another "24." That's a constant focus for us," said Dana Walden. Fox execs told reporters that Kiefer Sutherland "probably won't be in this installment" but they "aren't sure yet." "24" without Jack Bauer?
8. "Wayward Pines" Promises Groundbreaking TV
The eerie thriller from M. Night Shyamalan stars Matt Dillon as a Secret Service agent who finds himself in a creepy small town on the search for missing FBI agents. Shyamalan explained that the show completely switches genres "halfway through the season." There are hopes for a second season if the opportunity is there.
