Fox announced renewals today for a pair of prime-time dramas, with the announcement leaving a number of other shows on the bubble. E! News reports that the network picked up the freshman drama series “Rosewood” and “Lucifer” for 2016-17.
“Rosewood,” starring Morris Chestnut, has been averaging 7.8 million total viewers as the lead-in to “Empire” on Wednesday nights, the report notes. “Lucifer,” in which Tom Ellis plays the devil, is delivering 10.5 million total viewers across all platforms.
The network has already renewed the dramas “Empire” and “Gotham,” along with the comedies “The Last Man on Earth” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and has greenlighted the 12th and final season of “Bones.”
That leaves a number of shows still at risk, with the story singling out “New Girl,” “Grandfathered,” “The Grinder” and “Sleepy Hollow” as series that are still waiting to learn their fate.
