FOX Releases 2013-14 Schedule: A new night for ‘Bones’ and several limited series events on tap

On Monday, FOX released its 2013-14 primetime schedule. After finding success last season with The Following as a limited series, the network seems poised to use the same format with some of its new series.

FOX is also shifting around some of its more popular series. Bones will begin the series in its familiar Monday timeslot, but after the World Series break, it will move to Friday nights to make room for a new series. Glee is set for the fall, but disappears from the schedule in the winter. It will return in the spring with uninterrupted episodes. The network is being coy about how many episodes have been ordered for each of its series.

Several FOX shows including Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and The Cleveland Show do not have spots on the schedule yet. New drama Gang Related and the comedies Surviving Jack and Us & Them are expected to air midseason.

The network also made it official that 24 will return as a limited series event. 12 episodes will air beginning May 2014.
