With the three big names- ABC, CBS and NBC- ruling the American television industry, it was a great feat when Fox established itself as strong competition to them. Unlike others, Fox has limited the primetime, thus reducing the number of shows that it airs, as compared to other networks. Nonetheless, it has never compromised with the material that it allows on its network and hence, has delivered some of the best shows on television. ‘The Simpsons’ is one of its longest-running programs and is still going strong. Keeping in line with the versatility that is expected of any major network, Fox has also delivered shows like ‘Prison Break’, ‘Gotham’ and ‘Empire’. Apart from the scripted shows, the network has also been home of popular reality shows that range from a dance show, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, to cooking shows like ‘MasterChef’ and ‘Hell’s Kitchen’.
The future is full of exciting possibilities as Fox has been stretching its boundaries and testing new waters. Its investment in a great number of animated series this year shows how ready Fox is to experiment with different materials. Here is the list of the upcoming new shows coming out on Fox in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that these latest Fox shows are as good as some of the recent series it produced.
11. Paradise Hotel (May 2019)
‘Paradise Hotel’ was a reality show that ran from 2003 to 2008. It was set in a hotel resort where people were pitted against each other to survive in the place until the very end. Various competitions and other methods were used to eliminate the participants. The show would start with a total of 20 participants and by the end, only one would emerge as a winner. If you are someone who likes to eat their popcorn while enjoying the drama that unfolds in front of you, then ‘Paradise Hotel’ would be the perfect watch for you. A series revival has been commissioned by Fox, so you should mark your calendars in advance.
10. Eleven Little Indians (TBA)
M. Night Shyamalan is known for the twist endings that he adds to the stories of his films. ‘The Sixth Sense’, and now, the ‘Split’ universe has proved how adept he is at telling compelling stories. Even though most of his films have centred around the horror genre, Shyamalan is not the one to confine himself to any particular tags. With ‘Eleven Little Indians’, he will mark a debut in the comedy genre. This is not the first time that he has been a part of a television series. His last venture was the sci-fi drama ‘Wayward Pines’. However, this time, Shyamalan will be leaving behind all the darkness of these stories and will tell the tale of a complicated Indian family, full of characters who show great variations on the personality spectrum.
9. The Great North (TBA)
