Fox Unveils 2016-2017 Schedule: What's on the Move?

at . Comments

Fox has uncorked its full 2016-2017 schedule... and there are plenty of surprises to be found.

For starters, much-hyped reboots/revivals 24: Legacy and Prison Break are being held back for mid-season.

That's got to sting a little for fans of Prison Break who were expecting the show to premiere at some point this year. 

The good news for 24: Legacy is that it's getting the post Super Bowl slot, premiering in front of a giant audience after the Big Game on February 5.

For the most part, the fall schedule is very stable, with not much movement for existing shows. 

Ominously missing from the fall schedule is Sleepy Hollow, which is expected to undergo a major revamp for Season 4 after the departure of lead, Nicole Beharie. It will return mid-season.
