FOX is making some changes to their comedy lineup...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Last Man on Earth, and The Mick have been cancelled.

And they are bringing back Last Man Standing, which was cancelled by ABC last season. Tim Allen and Nancy Travis will be back, but Hector Elizondo and two of the kids (Kaitlyn Dever, Molly Ephraim) are not yet confirmed. I would guess it's either cost cutting or the actors simply aren't available.

Here's the ironic twist: One of the reasons the show was cancelled was because ABC didn't own it (it was a 20th Century Fox production) so they could not profit from syndication or any other aftermarket deals. Now that the show is going to air on FOX, they could run into the exact same problem because 20th Century Fox studios might be acquired by ABC parent company Disney!

On the drama side, FOX has cancelled Lucifer and The Exorcist.

Last Man on Earth, ended in a Cliffhanger. The
least they could do, is show what happened.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been un-cancelled. Just a few hours after news of the FOX cancellation broke, NBC has picked up the show for a 13-episode sixth season.

Except the show has a huge following and since it tags the same audience as Rosanne, older demographic, it may do well enough on Fox.  It may not be as expensive with cast changes.  I think all the kids are coming back. It must be contract details rather than them saying no.

After firing Clayne Crawford (for bad behavior on set), the future of Lethal Weapon was in limbo. Now, Seann William Scott has been hired as a replacement, and FOX has picked up the show for a third season.

FOX has picked up Gotham for a fifth and final season. This will allow the writers to build to a proper series finale, presumably focusing on young Bruce becoming Batman.
