Following the other major networks, Fox has announced its fall 2015 premiere schedule, which features returning hits like "Empire" and "Gotham" alongside new comedies and dramas.

The Tuesday night comedy block will look completely different this coming TV season, with freshman shows "Grandfathered" and "The Grinder" taking over slots once held by "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project." ("New Girl" is being held for midseason; after a Fox cancellation, "Mindy" is headed for new life at Hulu.) Those shows will debut in their regular timeslots following the two-hour series debut of "Scream Queens."

Meanwhile, established drama hits "Gotham" and "Empire" are building their own programming blocks around two new series, "Minority Report" and "Rosewood," respectively, while the Sunday night lineup mixing live-action and animated comedies will continue mostly unchanged from the end of last season. Returning series "MasterChef Junior" and "World's Funniest" will wait until Fox's coverage of the World Series ends in November before they debut on the schedule.
