The Gifted

After axing a giant chunk of their current series, NBC swooping in to save fan-favorite comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fox has laid out where many of their remaining shows and new pilots will end up. As part of the changes, some of their genre shows are finding a new home including the final season of Batman prequel Gotham. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the X-Men related series The Gifted will move from Monday nights to a new Tuesday night home to serve as a lead-in for the third season of Lethal Weapon, which has a new co-lead in Sean William Scott after Clayne Crawford was fired recently.

The aforementioned Gotham will see it’s fifth and final season, it was series on the bubble in regards to renewal, will be held for midseason alongside the sophomore season of Seth MacFarlane’s science fiction Star Trek inspired The Orville. These shows will be joined by the Mark-Paul Gosselaar led vampire saga series The Passage, legal drama Proven Innocent and a second installment of Cosmos titled.

Fox’s moves are reportedly centered around them focusing more on their deal with the NFL for games, and appear to be centered around picking up more programs that are created in-house from their TV studio rather than buying shows from other studios like Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Gotham.
