'The Following' will have a third season, which Fox will air in early 2015 in the United States.
Fox has renewed a string of popular shows under their belt.
The crime drama headlined by Kevin Bacon will have a third season, which Fox will unveil in early 2015. The network has also given the greenlight for new seasons of New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mindy Project.
In spite of a decline in ratings this season, The Following is slated to return to Fox for a new season, still starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the comedy on everyday operations at a fictional NYPD precinct, has also been guaranteed a spot in the 2014-2015 line-up. Since premiering in September 2013, the series has had a particularly eventful first season. Last January, in something of an upset, Brooklyn Nine-Nine took home two Golden Globes (best comedy series and best actor in a comedy series, for Andy Samberg). Less than one month later, the show attracted 15 million viewers in its episode aired just after the Super Bowl.
Also included in the post-Super Bowl programme this year, New Girl attracted 26 million viewers on the evening of the event. The comedy, which stars Zooey Deschanel as a cheerful school teacher, will return for its fourth season.
Finally, Fox has also renewed The Mindy Project, which will enter its third season. The comedy focuses on the life of Dr Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling), an eccentric doctor looking for her soulmate.
These four shows join Glee, The Simpsons, Bones, and Sleepy Hollow, which will also be renewed, as Fox announced previously. To find out the future of the rest of the current Fox line-up, namely the freshman series Almost Human and Rake, fans will have to wait until May 12, when the network will present its official 2014/2015 schedule in a press conference. — AFP Relaxnews
