Next up, FOX.

Already renewed:

9-1-1
The Gifted
The Orville
The Simpsons

Already canceled/ending:

New Girl

Fates still up in the air:

Bob's Burgers (good ratings, should be fine)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (low ratings, getting old and expensive, my guess is canceled)
Empire (good ratings, should be fine)
The Exorcist (low ratings, probably should have been canceled last season)
Family Guy (good ratings, a sure thing)
Ghosted (low rated new show, probably canceled)
Gotham (decent ratings, but getting old and expensive, my guess is one more season)
LA to Vegas (good ratings, will probably be back)
The Last Man on Earth (falling ratings, probably expensive, my guess is canceled)
Lethal Weapon (good ratings, should be fine)
Lucifer (good ratings, should be fine)
The Mick (decent ratings, will probably get another season)
The Resident (good ratings, should be fine)
Star (good ratings, should be fine)
The X-Files (might be back at some point, but not next season)

What happened to 911 and The Resident?

Both are on the list. 9-1-1 has already been renewed, and The Resident's good ratings should be enough for a renewal.

Those are good choices for Fox.

May I ask, how Last Man on Earth
is expensive?
I'm surprised that The Gifted
is coming back. It didn't stay
on the air for a whole season.

Tim Allen’s and Hector Elizondo’s salaries. It was not owned by ABC so it cost them more to air.  They also had no show left to pair it with.  The show supposedly attracted a conservative audience which is usually a death sentence on network TV, but not always.  

Tim Allen isn't on this show. I don't think
Hector is either.

The main Actor and the guy who plays his
Brother, are from SNL.

I’m sorry I thought you said Last Man Standing.

I don't know for sure about Last Man on Earth being expensive, but my guess is that after 4 seasons the cast (Will Forte, January Jones, Kristen Schaal, Mary Steenburgen) doesn't come cheap. It has also had some big name guest stars (Jon Hamm, Jack Black, Will Ferrell, Laura Dern, Kristen Wiig).

I did just realize that it will only have 63 episodes at the end of this season, which probably isn't quite enough for a syndication deal. So that might tilt my prediction to a possible renewal.
