One of the announcements Fox made while at the Television Critics Association press tour was the early renewal of three of their series. Newcomers Gotham and Empire plus sophomore comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be back for another go. They also said Bones is likely to return pending new contracts for Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz. Sleepy Hollow has yet to be decided, but they are looking to make some changes to the series to bring back some of the fun of the first season.
Empire, which has had only a handful of episodes air, is a little surprising to see already get renewed. Both it and Gotham are considered the breakout new series for the season along with How To Get Away With Murder, Scorpion and The Flash.
