FOX renews Gotham, Empire, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine; X-Files may return

01.19.2015

With the second half of the season not yet aired for GOTHAM and BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, and only one episode in for EMPIRE, FOX has made some early commitments and announced the three series will be returning in the Fall. Both GOTHAM and EMPIRE have been successful in the ratings, even if critics and fans have not been very kind to the Batman origin drama.

The news of these three series being renewed comes along with the reveal that FOX series BONES and SLEEPY HOLLOW have not yet been picked up for new runs in the Fall. SLEEPY HOLLOW has slipped in the ratings and will apparently undergo some fine-tuning, something many feel GOTHAM could use, too. This news came coupled with the confirmation that FOX is actively discussing rebooting THE X-FILES. Just five days ago, Gillian Anderson was lobbying for a return of the iconic scifi series and now FOX says a new run is being mulled with both Anderson and David Duchovny eyed to return. There is no progress on another 24 mini-series but it was not ruled out entirely.

This has been a good year for comic book television with ARROW and THE FLASH already renewed for new seasons. AGENT CARTER has been doing well in the ratings and AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. has been better, too. Hopefully we continue to see these shows on air for a while to come. And, if THE X-FILES comes back, I will be in heaven. Stay tuned for more details.

Duchovny and Anderson must return...

...or they needn't bother.

Two of the greatest characters (with incredible chemistry) that television has ever produced.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the only show that seems to be worth anything

I actually really enjoy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Gotham and Empire are just horrible though. I did like Sleepy Hollow, that was a much better show than Gotham.

X Files got very crap when Duchovney lost interest and whilst I watched every episode, I feel like I missed a season or something...because I still don't understand what happened to the story line concerning the black ooze...and the bounty hunters who mutilated their own eyes...with that story seemingly being dropped/changed to something else entirely...or at least that's what seemed to be happening. As it is, second comings in anything I follow tend not to be successful...so I'll reserve

As it is, second comings in anything I follow tend not to be successful...so I'll reserve judgement on this for the moment.

Gotham...I'm happy for it to continue but they need more bad-ass episodes like the one when Gordon took on the city on his own if that show really wants to have a long future - right now I think it's surfing off the goodwill comic book properties like the Flash and Arrow are mustering up. Put it this way, how much of a following would this series have if it was a show about a cop in a non comic book corrupt city? Living off a name is no bad thing, coz I think it gave Shield a second season when one could argue it might not have deserved one but it's now reaping the benefits of a much better second season...Gotham needs to follow suit.

X-Files had too many ideas and not enough restraint in its arch but I loved the stand alone episodes. I think they did monster of the week fantastically well. I would hope for some more if it came back. I enjoyed the freaks more than the aliens (towards the end anyway).

Gotham is such utter shit.

But I am excited for another X-Files season if Duchovney and Anderson both return.

To put it nicely,

The future of FOX television over the next couple of years does not look very bright.

Why doesnt it? Brooklyn nine-nine is a big hit and a very funny show. Gotham hasnt yet figured out what it wants to be, but there is plenty of potential there. Empire has 2 Oscar nominated actors in main roles and seems to be working towards something worth watching. And the X-Files is one of the most revered shows in the last 25 years.

I wasn't necessarily referring to Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It's just hard for me to stomach the fact that, in a golden age of television, shows like Gotham and Empire get renewed. X-Files just feels like desperation to me. I could be wrong, but it worked in the 90's. If it comes back will it be able to recreate what made the original series so beloved? My heart says yes, but my head says no. We'll see.

I think that Gotham fans is hopelessly misguided with their eternal optimism for the future.

I think that Gotham fans is hopelessly misguided with their eternal optimism for the future. Life is short, and I will never understand why people choose to spend so much of it on shows that they hope will get better b/c they fell in love with the "idea of the show".
