Fox is adding some horror to its midseason schedule.
The network has unveiled a premiere date for The Passage, an adventure series based on Justin Cronin's novels about a vampire virus.
It will bow Monday, January 14 at 9/8c in the slot 9-1-1 is currently airing in. Fox states the series will return later in 2019.
9-1-1 Season 2 will span 16 episodes, so it makes sense that Fox would remove it from the schedule for a while to keep some episodes for later.
"A secret government medical facility is experimenting with a dangerous virus that could either cure all disease or cause the downfall of the human race," reads the official logline.
"The series focuses on 10‐year‐old Amy Bellafonte, who is chosen to be a test subject for this experiment, and Brad Wolgast, the federal agent who becomes her surrogate father as he tries to protect her."
Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breakout Young Actress Saniyya Sidney lead the cast of this new series.
The series also stars Jamie McShane, Caroline Chikezie, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Brianne Howey, McKinley Belcher III, Henry Ian Cusick, and Vincent Piazza.
The pilot was originally shot in 2017, but there was some retooling needed before Fox committed to a series order.
