Fox set their first fall premiere dates for their animated lineup of series. On September 27, 2020, Fox will air the season premiere of each of their returning series. The Simpsons will kick off the night again with their 32nd season followed by Bless the Harts returning for Season 2. Season 11 of Bob’s Burgers will then lead into Season 19 of Family Guy once again. NFL Football will lead off the night as it has for years.

Because of the ongoing pandemic, these animated series were able to stay in production, being worked on remotely. The rest of FOX’s fall lineup will consist of live sporting events, acquired programming and holdovers from the previous season including Filthy Rich and Next. The CW will also feature a similar fall schedule while ABC, CBS and NBC put forward hopeful schedules where their returning programming would premiere as they are ready to air.

Fox additionally has Season 2 of Duncanville planned for midseason in Spring 2021. They also have two new animated series The Great North and Housebroken, which will premiere at some later date.
