Fox Sets Midseason Dates for 8 Series
Fox announced a portion of its midseason lineup in October. The network has now locked in that slate with premiere dates.
Eight series, including both shows in its 911 drama franchise, The Masked Singer spinoff The Masked Dancer and the final season of Last Man Standing, will debut in late December and January. First-year comedy Call Me Kat and dramas Prodigal Son and The Resident are also on tap.
Both The Masked Dancer and the two comedies will get NFL launchpads. The Masked Dancer, hosted by Craig Robinson, will debut on Dec. 27, immediately after an NFL doubleheader in all time zones (about 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT). It will then move to Wednesday nights at 8 — its parent show's usual spot — starting Jan. 6.
Call Me Kat starring The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik, and Last Man Standing will also get an NFL lead-in for much of the country on Jan. 3 (though not in all time zones). Their regular home will be Thursdays at 9 and 9:30 p.m. beginning Jan. 7. The 19th season of culinary competition Hell's Kitchen also premieres Jan. 7.
The Resident and Prodigal Son are set for Jan. 12 premieres, while 911 and 911: Lone Star will air back to back starting Jan. 18.
