Fox announced yesterday that Batman prequel Gotham has been picked up for a full first season of 22 episodes. From the network’s statement, via Give Me My Remote: “Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon have created an incredibly rich world, with characters that draw you in and a cast that brings to life these heroes and villains in a way we’ve never seen before.” Are you looking forward to more of Gotham?
Fox has announced their full list of fall premiere dates! As previously announced, Sleepy Hollow will return for season two on Monday, September 22nd at 9/8c. We now know that it will be preceded by the series premiere of Gotham on the same day at 8/7c. And Bones season ten (!) will premiere on Thursday, September 25th at 8/7c.

We, this is fun. Fox has released a new video centered around the villains of its upcoming show Gotham. Enjoy!
Fox has also released a trailer for Backstrom, their upcoming detective show from Bones‘s Hart Hanson and based on the books by Leif G.W. Persson (sadly not yet available in English). It stars Rainn Wilson, Genevieve Angelson, Kristoffer Polaha, Dennis Haysbert, Beatrice Rosen, Page Kennedy, and Thomas Dekker. You can see some pictures from the show at Give Me My Remote.
Fox has unveiled the first trailer for their event series Wayward Pines, which is based on the novels of Blake Crouch and produced by M. Night Shyamalan. The thriller stars Matt Dillon, Melissa Leo, Juliette Lewis, Carla Gugino, and Terrence Howard, and the show will premiere sometime in 2015. This is definitely one of those trailers that makes me say “I have no idea what’s going on, but I’m intrigued.” If you’d like to see a bit more of the show, check out some pictures at Give Me My Remote.
