FOX has announced its midseason plans, including a move for Rosewood and a premiere date for 24: Legacy. FOX Announces 2016-17 Midseason Schedule

FOX has added to its recent midseason announcements by confirming its plans for Thursdays and Fridays once the new year arrives.

Morris Chestnut-starring Rosewood, which was moved to Thursdays this season after spending its first season airing in front of Empire, is on the move again, this time to Fridays following underwhelming ratings. The series will premiere on its new night on Friday, January 6th at 8:00, the same night that the fourth season of Sleepy Hollow is set to debut. The season will be the show’s first without co-lead Nicole Beharie, who exited the series after three seasons.

With Pitch airing the last of its 10-episode initial order in December (with no back order picked up as of yet), FOX Thursdays will be all unscripted come January. Hell’s Kitchen is first on the docket, airing a two-hour episode on January 5th, with MasterChef Junior subbing in for a displaced Rosewood beginning February 9th. Beginning January 12th, Hell’s Kitchen (and subsequently MasterChef Junior) will be joined by My Kitchen Rules, which pits celebrity duos against one another as they cook and critique the other team’s food in Hollywood homes. The series will be judged by Curtis Stone and Cat Cora.

Elsewhere, FOX has confirmed premiere dates for 24: Legacy and APB, as the former will premiere following the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 5th before assuming the Mondays at 8:00 slot the following day. APB, about a tech billionaire taking control of a Chicago police station, will premiere Monday, February 6th at 9:00.

Yet to be given official premiere dates are the reboot of Prison Break, limited series Shots Fired, and historical comedy Making History.
