Many of Fox's series have already been renewed for another season. What does the future hold for the rest of their TV shows? Cancelled or renewed for 2014-15? We'll have to wait and see.
New Fox shows (so far): Almost Human, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dads, MasterChef Junior, and Sleepy Hollow.
How does Fox decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play a very large role. The higher the ratings, the better chances a show has of surviving. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »
Guess what? Mindy Kaling is [bleeping] tired of hearing complaints and criticism claiming that her show isn't diverse enough. The funnywoman defended The Mindy Project during "Running the Show: TV's New Queen of Comedy," a Marie Claire-sponsored panel discussion of her show at SXSW in Austin, Texas, earlier today after a reporter asked, "You guys have a great, diverse set of characters, but was it a conscious decision for Mindy to be the only female doctor, and the only doctor color of show?" Kaling had a very candid response. ""I look at shows on TV, and this is going to just seem defensive, but I'm just gonna say it: I'm a f--king Indian woman who has her own f--king network »
After four seasons, Fox has canceled Raising Hope. The show, starring Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, and Garret Dillahunt, will end with an hourlong episode to air on April 4 at 9 p.m. Though the show will live on in syndication, fans will no doubt be disappointed that no new episodes will be produced. The decision comes days after Fox greenlit a handful of shows for new seasons, including The Mindy Project. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia, and Raising Hope's amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," producer Mike Mariano said in a statement. "We planned our season-four finale with this possibility in mind and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we've chosen to say good-bye to the Chances and to Natesville." »

Given its consistently low ratings, it's somewhat astounding that "Raising Hope" managed to get four often terrific seasons on Fox. It's still sad to report that "Raising Hope" will have its series finale on Friday, April 4 with an hour-long send-off. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and 'Raising Hope's' amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," blurbs executive producer Mike Mariano, who took over as showrunner for Garcia this season. "We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication." Often aired in erratic patterns with lengthy hiatuses, doubled-up episodes and early finales, "Raising Hope" will still hit 88 episodes by its finale. During its run, »

In great news, Fox has renewed New Girl, The Mindy Project, The Following (okay, that one might not be great) and critical darling Brooklyn Nine Nine.
While that detailed of a demographic breakdown isn’t available, The Oc Weekly argues that Looking is the “perfect show for (straight) women“, praising the show for avoiding tropes like ticking biological clocks and generally tossing out relationship gender roles.
Speaking of Looking, last night’s finale prompts Buzzfeed to ponder the enduring affection gay men have for The Golden Girls. It turns out there’s a good number of diehard fans working on the HBO dramedy.

Mindy Kaling just can't be stopped.
Hot on the heels of the announcement that Fox is renewing her cult hit comedy "The Mindy Project" for a Season 3, Kaling revealed some other exciting news at Austin's SXSW festival on Sunday (March 9): She's writing another book.
The actress/writer/all-around inspiring, successful woman was being interviewed by Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider about the recent success of female showrunners on television, and while being her usual charming self, she wowed the crowd with her announcement.
While she didn't reveal any details -- and even told the audience to hold their applause until they read the book -- this is fantastic news, as anyone who read her first book, "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)" knows. Kaling has a very specific voice and opinion, and it's clear that she's got an audience, ready and willing to listen.

FX gives its animated spy comedy series Archer two more seasons; The Flash adds Patrick Sabongui (300) as its police captain; Fox renews The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl for additional seasons; and HBO decides not to order David Milch’s The Money to series.
FX has renewed Archer for seasons 6 and 7 (13 episodes each), a move that will keep the hit animated comedy on the air through 2016 and on its way toward cable and broadcast syndication.
After watching the season 5 premiere, many – including our own Kofi Outlaw – weren’t sure that Archer‘s Vice revamp was the right direction for an already successful series to ...

Amidst a host of comedy renewal announcements from Fox, which has just granted new seasons to Andy Samburg hit Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and The Mindy Project, was the news that serial killer drama The Following will be returning for a third run in 2015.
The Following's first season wasn't without its problems, but the second run - according to our reviewer at least - has established itself as a grotesquely bonkers and darkly comic exploration of obsession and manipulation. Fingers crossed that its success means Mr Bacon will no longer have to pop up in those excruciating cinema ads. »
Technically the writers of "The Mindy Project" will have a month off after they finish production on the Fox comedy's second season before they congregate to start breaking Season 3, but Ike Barinholtz tells Zap2it on a recent visit to the set -- where they were shooting the Season 2 finale -- that he's constantly thinking about ideas for new episodes.
"My [writing] partner and I were just talking about an idea for a story a little bit ago," he says "It's so funny, you get a few weeks' break and you're like 'Ok, well I'm going to go shut it down and think about other stuff,' but you do think about the show. It's such a big part of our lives, so you'll be in an argument with your wife one day and you'll be like 'Oh, this'll be a great episode.'"
The writers are "just starting to" think »
Wow. Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly wasn't kidding when he said he was "bullish" on low-rated Tuesday comedy "The Mindy Project." On Friday (March 7) afternoon, Fox made a quartet of early renewals for the 2014-2015 season, with "The Mindy Project" joining relative no-brainers "New Girl," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "The Following." This will be a third season for "The Mindy Project" and "The Following," a fourth season for "New Girl" and a second season for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." "These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera," blurb Reilly and Fox COO Joe Earley. "All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our Fox fans for another season." The renewal announcement didn't include episode counts, though presumably "The Following" will continue with its limited-batch order strategy. »

Earlier this evening, Fox renewed The Following, New Girl, and The Mindy Project -- as well as newbie comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Meanwhile, fellow freshman Dads is sure to be cancelled. But what about the network's other new sitcom -- Enlisted? Will it be cancelled or renewed?
Enlisted follows three brothers who find themselves all stationed at the same Us Army base in Florida as part of a troupe of misfits. The sitcom's cast includes Stults, Chris Lowell, Parker Young, Keith David, and Angelique Cabral.
The sitcom debuted in January, following Raising Hope, and drew a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.41 million viewers. It was hardly a positive start -- even for a Friday night show. The second episode dropped lower.
Then, Fox decided to switch Raising Hope's and Enlisted's timeslots, giving the latter a stronger lead-in with Bones. As »
It's a good start to the weekend for the cast and crew of four of Fox's shows. The network has handed down early renewals for New Girl (season four), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (season two), The Mindy Project (season three), and The Following (season three).
The fates of Almost Human, Enlisted, Raising Hope, Dads, and Rake are still up in the air. It's likely that at least a few of them will be cancelled by May.
Here's the renewal press release:
Fox Comedies “Brooklyn Nine-nine,” “The Mindy Project” And “New Girl,” Along With Psychological Thriller “The Following,”
Renewed For 2014-2015 Season
All-New The Following Airs Monday, »
In an uncharacteristically aggressive move for Fox, the basic cable network announced today that it would be ordering additional seasons of four programs. Included among the lucky few are critically acclaimed comedies New Girl, The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, along with the Kevin Bacon-starring thriller The Following.
Most decisions about renewals and cancellations come later in the spring, more towards the end of March and April, so Fox’s enthusiasm in handing renewals to the four shows speaks volumes about the confidence that the network brass has in them, both creatively and in terms of ratings. It’s worth noting that none of the renewed shows have drawn huge audiences, but all have benefitted tremendously from factoring in DVR viewings.

Fox has gotten around to its show renewals early with four more of its series scoring early pickups for new seasons.
Freshman comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will be back for a second season, serial killer drama "The Following" will return for a third season, comedy "The Mindy Project" will be back for a third season, and "New Girl" will return for a fourth season.
The quartet join Fox's long-running "Glee" which was already picked up for a final season to air next year, along with a second season of "Sleepy Hollow" and a tenth of "Bones".
This marks a change for Fox which became famous for bumping off struggling shows early. Even though "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has had difficulty finding an audience and "The Following" has dropped in its second season, Fox is sticking by them.

Fox has picked up three of its Tuesday-night comedies -- "New Girl," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "The Mindy Project" -- for next season, along with drama "The Following."
Three of the four pickups seemed fairly likely: Ratings for "The Following" have been down some this season but it remains a solid performer, and "New Girl" and "Brooklyn" are the network's two top live-action comedies. The "Mindy" renewal is a mild surprise as its ratings are somewhat lower, and it's been on hiatus since January, with a return set for April 1.
The four shows join the already renewed "Bones," "Glee" and "Sleepy Hollow" on Fox's schedule for next season. The network also has made series commitments to several new shows, including dramas "Gotham" and "Backstrom" and comedies "Mulaney" and "Cabot College," for 2014-15.
Where they all end up on the schedule is very much an open question, as Fox is committing to »
