2019-20: FOX Adds Six Dramas, Four Comedies Six new dramas—including a 9-1-1 spin-off starring Rob Lowe—and four comedies are set to join FOX’s 2019-20 schedule, which will see Empire come to an end in its sixth season.

“Today marks a new beginning for FOX Entertainment,” said CEO Charlie Collier. “So it is with a start-up mindset and, upon an incredible foundation of assets, that we deliver our first slate of new comedies, dramas and unscripted series. Alongside top creators and talent, and through innovative partnerships across the industry, we are redefining what it means to be an entertainment company, and what it means to be FOX, for 2019 and beyond.”

On Mondays, 9-1-1 moves into the 8 p.m. slot, serving as the lead-in to the brand new Prodigal Son, the latest from Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. The series stars Tom Payne as the son of a convicted serial killer, played by Michael Sheen, who has made hunting murderers his life’s work.

The Resident movies to Tuesdays at 8 p.m., paired with the final season of Empire.

The Masked Singer also moves to a new night, Wednesdays, ahead of the new Not Just Me from executive producer Jason Katims. The breakout hit of FOX’s schedule this year has also been given the plum post-Super Bowl slot for its third season.

Thursdays in the fall are dedicated to NFL football, with WWE’s Smackdown Live on Fridays.

Sundays will feature the returning The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers and Family Guy together with the new animated comedy Bless the Harts, featuring a voice cast that includes Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph.

New series for 2020 include 9-1-1: Lone Star with Rob Lowe as an NYC cop who relocates to Austin, Texas, with his son; the new cop drama Deputy; the soapy family drama Filthy Rich with Kim Cattrall; the thriller neXt; and the comedies Duncanville (from Amy Poehler), Outmatched and The Great North. Last Man Standing and The Orville have been renewed for midseason.
