16 June 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“What fresh hell is this?” Fox has officially set calendar slots for their fall TV schedule, including the premiere dates for The Exorcist, Scream Queens Season 2, and Lucifer Season 2.

Inspired by the 1971 novel and the 1973 film that both bear the same name, The Exorcist will make its series premiere on Friday, September 23rd at 9:00pm Est. Scream Queens, meanwhile, will return for its second season on Tuesday, September 20th at 9:00pm Est, and fans of Mr. Morningstar can watch Lucifer Season 2 debut on Monday, September 19th at 9:00pm Est. Below, we have the official press release with full details:

Press Release: Fox has set the fall premiere dates for its new and returning series.

All-new episodes of Gotham and Lucifer return Monday, Sept. 19. On Season Three of Gotham (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt), the origin story continues and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super-Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City. Season Two of Lucifer (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) promises to be a mother of a season, as Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) is tasked with finding his family’s matriarch, while continuing to take down criminals alongside Lapd Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

Tuesday nights of comedy begin Tuesday, Sept. 20 with the return of Brooklyn Nine-nine, New Girl and Scream Queens. Entering its fourth season, Brooklyn Nine-nine (8:00-8:30 Pm Et/Pt) returns after a season finale cliffhanger in which Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his by-the-book boss, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), were forced to enter the federal witness protection program. Then, the sixth season of ensemble comedy New Girl (8:30-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) continues to follow Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the gang as they attempt to find their respective places in the world, while begrudgingly accepting the responsibilities of adulthood – from marriage to career advancement – with often hilarious results.

From award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (“The People V. Oj Simpson: American Crime Story,” “American Horror Story,” “Nip/Tuck”), Brad Falchuk (“American Horror Story,” “Glee,” “Nip/Tuck”) and Ian Brennan (“Glee”), Season Two of Scream Queens (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) graduates from the college campus and into a hospital with a haunted past, as a new and terrifyingly funny mystery begins. Returning for Season Two are cast members Emma Roberts as Chanel Oberlin, 2016 Golden Globe Award nominee Jamie Lee Curtis as Cathy Munsch, Lea Michele as Hester Ulrich, Abigail Breslin as Chanel #5, Keke Palmer as Zayday Williams, Billie Lourd as Chanel #3, Glen Powell as Chad Radwell and Niecy Nash as Denise Hemphill. Additional cast members to be announced.

Beginning Sept. 21, Wednesdays are explosive, with the series premiere of Lethal Weapon and the return of Empire. Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, Lethal Weapon (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) follows iconic cop duo Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) and Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. Empire (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), broadcast television’s biggest hit, is a powerful drama about a family at the center of a music dynasty. This season, Empire Entertainment founder Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) sets his sights on a new streaming service; as his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon (Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson) pursues a new romantic interest; and his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers), struggle with fame and ambition.

All-new episodes of Rosewood return, followed by the series premiere of Pitch, beginning Thursday, Sept. 22. Set against the vibrant backdrop of one of the world’s hottest cities – Miami – medical procedural Rosewood (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) enters its second season as top private pathologist Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and tough-as-nails Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz) solve the Miami Pd’s most challenging cases. Pitch (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) is the dramatic and emotional story of Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury, “Under The Dome”), who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball – under the glare of a white-hot media spotlight. From executive producer Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”), the inspiring series also stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar (“Franklin & Bash,” “NYPD Blue”), Ali Larter (“Legends,” “Heroes”), Mark Consuelos (“Kingdom,” “All My Children”) and Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”).

Friday nights are terrifyingly entertaining, beginning Sept. 23, with the return of Hell’S Kitchen and the series premiere of The Exorcist. Season 16 of Hell’S Kitchen (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) welcomes a new batch of ambitious chefs who will brave Chef Gordon Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he puts them through an intense culinary academy. Then, The Exorcist (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) returns as a contemporary psychological TV thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of terrifying demonic possession. Directed by Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), the series stars Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Geena Davis (“Commander in Chief,” “Thelma & Louise”), Alfonso Herrera (“Sense8,” “The Chosen”) and Ben Daniels (“Flesh and Bone,” “House of Cards”).

Sunday Funday returns beginning Sept. 25, with the season premieres of Emmy Award-winning comedy Bob’S Burgers (7:30-8:00 Pm Et/Pt) and the unprecedented 28th season of The Simpsons (8:00-8:30 Pm Et/Pt), followed by the premiere of hybrid live-action/animated family comedy Son Of Zorn (8:30-9:00 Pm Et/Pt). Featuring the voice of Jason Sudeikis (The Last Man On Earth, “Horrible Bosses,” “We’re the Millers”), Son Of Zorn follows an animated warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean, who returns to Orange County, CA, to win back his live-action ex-wife (Cheryl Hines, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and teenage son (Johnny Pemberton, “21 Jump Street”). Rounding out the night are the 14th season premiere of creator Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy (9:00-9:30 Pm Et/Pt) and Season Three of the critically acclaimed live-action comedy The Last Man On Earth (9:30-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), created by and starring Emmy Award nominee Will Forte.

The iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh are back in the all-new Fox series Lethal Weapon, which reboots the hit movie franchise on television, once again following cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles.

Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy Seal-turned-detective Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) moves to California to “start over” at the Lapd. He’s paired up with Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique. It’s clear from the moment they meet, this partnership could be lethal.

Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.

Lethal Weapon

New Netflix Sitcom 'The Ranch' Starring Ashton Kutcher Gets Trailer

10 March 2016 12:50 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you'd asked me about the direction of comedies a year ago, I would've told you that the multi-cam sitcoms are on their way out. More of a descendant of radio than film, these are the types of comedies that seemed destined to go the way of the dodo as the filmmaking process became cheaper.

Well, it's not the first time I've been wrong. With Fuller House now under their belt, Netflix has just released another laugh track sitcom. But while Fuller House looks like it's more on the wholesome side, The Ranch falls squarely on the other side of the spectrum, complete with F-bombs and other four-letter words.

Check out the Nsfw trailer below!

Mad Men star Kevin Rahm has signed on for a series regular role in Fox’s Lethal Weapon pilot, where he will play the role of Captain Avery, “who pairs up Murtaugh with Riggs, hoping the younger cop can put a little vigor back in Murtaugh’s career, and enjoys the corner office that came with his recent promotion to Captain.”

While the Mel Gibson role of Martin Riggs remains uncast, Damon Wayans (My Wife and Kids) will follow in Danny Glover’s footsteps as Roger Murtaugh and Fast & Furious star Jordana Brewster will play Lapd hostage negotiator and therapist Dr. Maureen ‘Mo’ Cahill.

Fox orders Lethal Weapon pilot, Damon Wayans to star and McG to direct

13 February 2016 12:58 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like we can add Lethal Weapon to the ever-growing list of movies getting the small screen treatment, with Fox giving a pilot order to Warner Bros. for a TV adaptation of the hit buddy cop franchise.

The pilot will see Damon Wayans (My Wife and Kids) taking on the role of Roger Murtaugh, played by Danny Glover in the four feature films. As yet, there’s no word on who will be taking over the part of Martin Riggs from Mel Gibson.

Charlie’s Angels helmer McG is set to direct the pilot from a script by Matt Miller (Forever); the plot will see Texas cop and former Navy Seal Riggs moving to Los Angeles to start anew after the death of his wife and child, where he’s partnered with Murtaugh, who having recently suffered a “minor” heart attack, must avoid stress in his life.
