Fox is the latest network to firm up its midseason schedule, and there's good news for fans of Gotham

The final season of the Batman prequel is slated to return to Thursday nights in January.

New procedural drama, Proven Innocent has also been given a premiere date. The Rachelle Lefevre-fronted series will air in the Friday at 9/8c slot. 

While Fridays are generally lower-rated than the other nights Fox schedules original programming, the network has had some success with Last Man Standing and The Cool Kids on the night. 

Also revealed is the return date for The Orville, which will get a boost thanks to an NFL doubleheader on Sunday, December 30th before making its way back Thursdays in January.

The Masked Singer and Gordon Ramsay's will fill on for Empire and Star on Wednesdays while the two dramas take their typical midseason hiatuses. 

Fox previously revealed that 9-1-1 would be taking a hiatus at the start of 2019 to make room for vampire drama, The Passage. 

All told, have a look at the full schedule below.

FOX Quotes

Very disappointed. Personally, I really don’t want to come back. I’d rather face the killer than backstabbers. At least I know what the motives are behind the killer.


[To Andy] If I make it back here, your ass is grass! And I’ve made sure of that.
