Fox renews ‘Gotham,’ ‘Empire,’ ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’

‘Empire,’ ‘Gotham,’ ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Renewed at Fox.

The network used its executive session to hand out early 2015-16 pickups to freshman dramas Empire and Gotham as well as a third run for comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Its series premiere —6.0 in the advertiser-coveted demo — outperformed The Blacklist and Scorpion and delivered Fox’s highest-rated fall drama debut in 14 years.

The live-plus-seven rating for the Ben McKenzie DC Comics adaptation from Bruno Heller reflects the largest post-three-day ratings gain (+0.9) of any broadcast drama ever. Its renewal guarantees that Schur and Goor will have one series on the broadcast networks next season after NBC’s Parks and Recreation signs off this spring. Empire, Brooklyn and Gotham join previously renewed animated series for the 2015-16 broadcast season Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy andThe Simpsons and mark the network’s first scripted pickups.

The renewals — one from all of the big studios — come after CBS and The CW announced multiple renewals for 2015-16 during their TCA sessions earlier in the week.
