Fox Decides to Renew BREAKING IN after Cancellation and Snags New Pilot from Series Creator Adam F. Goldberg

     August 24, 2011


After the series got canceled back in May, news from the Television Critics Association Press Tour revealed that Fox had extended the option on the cast of Breaking In which meant the series still had the potential to come back from the dead. Now it seems like the impossible has happened as Deadline reports Fox has given a 13-episode midseason order to the series which has always been on the cusp of doom from when it almost didn’t get picked up, to its cancellation last year before it even finished its first season. Surely plenty of fans are rejoicing right now at this miraculous comeback. Ironically enough, the only other show to come back from the dead like this is Family Guy, another series which calls Fox home. This new deal also includes the pick-up of a new pilot from the series creator Adam F. Goldberg. Details on the new series after the jump.

With the return of Breaking In, Fox has also make a script commitment with penalty for a new 1980’s family-based comedy which is apparently autobiographical to some degree and will also be produced by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production banner. However, it’s not clear how this new series will be developed since Goldberg is getting back to work immediately on Breaking In. However, this is great news for Goldberg as Fox is aiming to keep him around the network. Here’s hoping Breaking In lasts this time, at least for all the fans who have been clinging to hope that it would return.
