Fox issued renewals for a handful of its shows Monday, most notably granting a second season to Kevin Bacon’s high-profile serial killer drama “The Following” after just six episodes have aired.
“From the very beginning, we felt Kevin Williamson and Marcos Siega had created a high-quality, edge-of-your-seat drama that could break from the pack, and it is exciting to see the audience responding,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Fox Entertainment. “Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have given us two of the most compelling characters on television and the entire cast is incredible. I’m delighted to have this thrill ride continue on FOX for another season.”
“New Girl” will be returning for its third season of Zooey Deschanel’s “adorkable” antics, while Mindy Kaling’s “Mindy Project” is getting a second season, and “Raising Hope” is going into Season 4.
“We love working with these talented producers and casts who, week after week, create some of the funniest work on television,” Reilly said of the Fox comedies. “These shows are creatively vibrant, they have established a loyal and passionate audience and they will continue to define and grow the FOX comedy brand next season and beyond.”
