FOX announced its 2020 fall schedule today. Kind of. What I mean by that is they still haven't announced the fates of many of their shows. No current show that has been impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns is on the fall schedule. They're all being held back until 2021.

Anyway, here is the fall schedule:

Monday
8:00 - L.A.'s Finest
9:00 - Next

Tuesday
8:00 - Cosmos: Possible Worlds
9:00 - Filthy Rich

Wednesday
8:00 - The Masked Singer
9:00 - MasterChef Junior

Thursday
8:00 - Thursday Night Football

Friday
8:00 - WWE Smackdown Live

Saturday
8:00 - FOX Sports Saturday

Sunday
8:00 - The Simpsons
8:30 - Bless the Harts
9:00 - Bob's Burgers
9:30 - Family Guy

Next and Filthy Rich were originally going to air this Spring. Their seasons have already completed filming. L.A's Finest originally aired on Spectrum Originals. Cosmos: Possible Worlds already aired on National Geographic. Everything else on the fall schedule is reality and sports, except the Sunday animated shows (I'm not sure how they're being affected by the virus).

We do know the following shows have been renewed:

9-1-1
9-1-1: Lonestar
Bless the Harts
Bob's Burgers
Duncanville
Family Guy
Hell's Kitchen
The Simpsons

And these shows have been canceled:

Almost Family
BH90210
Deputy
Empire
Flirty Dancing

That leaves the fates of these shows uncertain:

Last Man Standing (very likely renewal)
Outmatched (likely cancel)
Prodigal Son (very likely renewal)
The Resident (very likely renewal)

So there is no new fall season for any drama?

Why was Deputy cancelled? My BF liked that show.

It's looking more and more likely that the new season won't begin until January 2021, or later.

Deputy was canceled for low ratings. The only FOX drama that did worse was Almost Family, which was also canceled.

I haven't paid for any TV -- cable, streaming or otherwise -- in about eight years. I go to the library and get full series runs of TV shows that I didn't watch first time around. Last summer it was 90 something episodes of the Denis Leary show Rescue Me. Two episodes a night for almost two months. This summer will be six seasons of Justified. I'll also get movies the same way.

I watched all of Rescue Me several years ago. Didn’t care for Justified.  My library is closed and they charge for DVDs, and even if it wasn’t, my DVD player broke, so I have to stream.  I’ve seen pretty much every old series I want to see that is available.  Netflix has lost most of its good programming to the individual networks.
