Looks like we're not saying goodbye to Cal Lightman and Christopher Chance any time soon.
Fox has renewed Lie to Me
and Human Target
for new 13-episode seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter
, and has also picked up five new shows for the upcoming season. Human Target
, the Mark Valley-led series based on the comic series of the same name, is set to return for a second season, with Chuck's Matt Miller taking over as showrunner. Lie to Me
, the Tim Roth-led series about an expert in microexpressions assisting authorities in solving cases, will also continue for a third season despite the departure of Shawn Ryan as showrunner.
Ryan is staying within Fox, though, as his police drama RideAlong
has been picked up by the network. Set in Chicago, the series follows a rogue cop and the city's first female police chief solving crimes.
Also getting picked up for next season are Texas-set drama Midland
, about a con man in the oil industry; Greg Garcia's latest comedy Keep Hope Alive
, following the adventures of a single parent; Traffic Light
, a comedy about bromances; and Wilde Kingdom, the latest project from Arrested Development
creator Mitch Hurwitz and star Will Arnett.
The network is still expected to pick up one or two more shows before next week's upfront presentation, with Steven Spielberg's dinosaur-era drama Terra Nova
--which might star Friday Night Lights
