Tonight, fans of Fox’s “Rosewood” can prepare to see the series off in the rear-view mirror, even if it is only for a relatively short period of time. The show is not canceled, and it will be coming back to the network later this year with Morris Chestnut once again front and center.
As for when you can anticipate seeing more of the show, there’s also a fairly-simple answer to that: Thursdays. Fox has already announced their fall schedule, and the series is going to be making a move to a new night in order to free up Wednesdays for “Lethal Weapon” to air alongside “Empire.” We don’t imagine in the end that this will damage “Rosewood” too much, given that this is a show that never really relied on it for ratings.
With this move to Thursdays, the network is also going to be pairing up with a new series in “Pitch” that was originally scheduled for midseason. This show will chronicle the journey of the (fictional) first woman pitcher in Major League Baseball. It has a full MLB license, so it should have a chance to shine. Who knows? Maybe it’ll also give “Rosewood” some added attention. What we like about it is that there aren’t really a whole lot of series out there quite like it anymore, and with “Bones” ending, it could carry the torch for this format if it manages to get a third season for the 2017-18 season.
Of course, we’re getting ahead of ourselves somewhat here. Stay tuned, since we’re going to have an official premiere date later this summer.
