In a shared statement from Fox chairman Kevin Reilly and his chief operating officer, Joe Earley has announced the renewals for four of their popular TV shows. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, The Following and New Girl will be back for more and join the previously renewed Bones, Sleepy Hollow and Glee for the 2014-15 season.
“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera. All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we're really happy to bring them back to our Fox fans for another season."
Kevin Williamson’s The Following scored a series best with the launch of its second season earlier this year, despite compelling performances from Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy (on devilishly psychotic form) the show has struggled to maintain the big audience that tuned in first time round.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine took home two Golden Globes at this year’s ceremony including one for star Andy Samberg, the cop show comedy is coming to the end of its first season in the US and has done a beautiful job of lampooning the procedural genre. A guest appearance from music royalty Prince (and the Super Bowl) gave New Girl a massive audience of 25.8 million and The Mindy Project retained its loyal fanbase even if its not one of Fox’s top rated shows.
