Fox is the latest network to confirm when it will be kicking off its fall 2018 schedule, and it sure looks to be sticking to the norm.
New comedy series, REL will bow first in early September with a post-NFL preview in an attempt to give the series ample sampling ahead of its regularly scheduled debut in late September.
9-1-1 is similarly getting an early debut on Sundays out of the NFL, before moving to Mondays the following night out of The Resident Season 2.
The early preview for 9-1-1 Season 2 is unsurprising. It was one of the surprise success stories of the 2017-18 season. 9-1-1 Season 1 averaged a 3.0 rating in the demo, so it's a big deal for the network.
As previously reported, Thursday Night Football will air on the network in the fall, meaning multiple shows are missing from the schedule at the moment.
Fridays will feature the return of Last Man Standing which the network is reviving over a year after it was canceled by ABC.
All told, have a look at the full schedule below.
