FOX has announced fall 2014 premiere dates for its new and returning shows. The vast majority, as always, debut in September, with a few shows premiering in October and even one in November.
New reality competition show Utopia will kick everyone off for the network with a three-part premiere starting on Sunday, September 7, and continuing on Tuesday and Friday. Hell's Kitchen returns in the midst of that launch, on Wednesday, September 10. The following week will see Utopia continue in its regular timeslot of Tuesdays at 8pm, with six episodes airing on Fridays starting September 12.
Most of the lineup will premiere during the rest of the month, with new show Red Band Society launching on Wednesday, September 17 at 9pm, and the Batman prequel Gotham on Monday, September 22 at 8pm, followed by the return of Sleepy Hollow at 9pm. After airing on both Mondays and Fridays last season, Bones will air on Thursdays starting September 25 at 8pm.
Gracepoint, a 10-episode event series that's a remake of the UK's Broadchurch, premieres on Thursday, October 2 at 9pm. And the final premiere date for FOX is not until Friday, November 7 at 8pm with the return of MasterChef Junior.
