As part of the TCA Press Tour presentation for Fox, President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly took some time to talk about the focus of their returning series for the Fall season, the possibility of further seasons for a number of those shows, and the role that their new line-up will play, in determining the future of the network. Here are the most interesting points:
- Season 3 of Glee will return its focus on the core characters and relationships, with three of the original cast graduating this season. There are not going to be any big guest stars this season, or tribute episodes.
- There is no doubt that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk will be able to manage their time on both Glee and their new FX drama series American Horror Story.
- Fox has made the unique decision to team up with Seth MacFarlane to produce Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey, a 13-part sequel to the Emmy-winning 1980 PBS docu-series from Carl Sagan.
- The folks behind Terra Nova are right on track with where that show needs to be, in order to have the episodes ready for their air dates, and Fox believes they’ve got a real shot with the epic series.
- Kevin Reilly is happy with where things are at with both Fringe and Bones, and hopes both of those series will be continuing with future seasons. And, although they are considering a Season 8 for House, even involved wants to be sure to go out on top creatively, so no decision has been made yet.
- An option has been extended with the cast of Breaking In, so there is still some slim hope that that series could return, at some point.
