Cancelled & Renewed FOX TV Shows for 2011-12

Fringe TV showThe FOX network consistently wins the season in the all-important 18-49 demographic category but that doesn’t mean that any show is safe if they don’t perform. Is your favorite FOX TV series returning or has it already been cancelled? What TV shows have been renewed for another season?

Here’s a list of all of the regular FOX TV shows that have aired (or are expected to air) during the 2011-12 season (roughly September 2011 – August 2012).

Using this “cheat sheet” you can tell where your favorite FOX TV series stands; how many episodes are in the current season, when it’ll be back on the air and, of course, if it’s already been renewed or cancelled.

If you can’t find a particular FOX program on this list, it may have been cancelled last season (2010-11) or perhaps the one before (2009-10).

    I have been waiting for Terra nova to come back. I was disappointed in the ending of Lost, Please bring Terra Nova back.

    Drop The Finder…… A total waste of 3 hours of my life.
    I guess the people at FOX owed Hart Hanson from Bones a favor .
    This is the only reason way FOX would ever air a crappy show as the Finer.

    I LOVE this site regardless, but it’s absolutely infuriating when every time you click a link for a show it’s always looped… it drives me insane!

      Sarah » It’s not a loop, it’s just the way the tags are set up. After you click the link, droll down and you’ll see additional posts. We’re working on fixing it. Thanks for your patience… and the “love.” :)

    Finder is one of the more interesting shows out. It is fresh and different, not a lot of gore, but still keeps you interested and wanting more.

    Tera Nova is better than Lost!! Very, very good!!

    Alcatraz is another one that is peeking my interest and making me tune in for more. Interesting to see the criminals from the past coming back as they were when went to jail.

    Please keep these shows, I know many would miss them.

    If Fox kills off New Girl, it will be just like the major screwup they did back when arrested development was an emmy winner!

    I like The Finder,but this is Fox and it will be canceled it’s a shame.. I caught this show On Demand for the first episode and I’ll be watching it until they can it. People give The Finder a chance.

    I was thinking…. would it be better for ‘fringe’ if they did what ‘lost’ did and only have 16-episodes a season? Have the season start in january and go straight through to may. Anyone think this might help the ratings?

  8. Dee S. says

    Can you please take the Simpsons off the air??? OMG! What an “idiot show”! You will leave this crappy show on, but take a well-written show , “24” off the air! WTH!?!?

    • 8bithero says

      It’s about numbers and money. The Simpsons still pulls in advertising cash and has the ratings so it will persist.

  9. I_R_Human says

    Bones is only 17 episodes this season??? I must have missed that….seems kind of odd not to have a full season…
