Today, Fox confirmed that they are officially giving a green light to both the Matt Czuchry and Angela Bassett series, which means that both of them will be coming back for a season 3 down the line. We cannot say that we’re shocked about either of these, largely because you are talking about two of Fox’s stronger drama series and ones that have forged devoted followings — due to the actors involved, they also each have solid international audiences, as well.
Now, we come to the point in our article where we share what Michael Thorn, the entertainment president for Fox Entertainment, has to say — obviously, he’s elated to bring the two shows back.
For The Resident – “Amy Holden Jones, Todd Harthan and the team behind The Resident continue to showcase their brilliant storytelling, revealing both the triumphs and tragedy within the medical world … Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp and Bruce Greenwood, along with the stellar cast, have developed rich and compelling characters through their heartfelt performances.”
For 911 – “9-1-1 redefined what a procedural series can be, consistently delivering edge-of-your-seat emergencies, mixed with emotional story arcs and incredible performances from one of the most powerful teams of actors on television … Kudos to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and their entire crew, as well as the amazing cast … for raising the bar week after week.”
Now that both of these shows are renewed…
This is the time where it’s worth discussing the long term future for both of them. We don’t see any reason to think that The Resident and 911 will go off the air anytime soon. We’re entering a new era over at Fox and this is where they decide the shows that they want to ride with and stick with them. Original, thought-provoking concepts is a part of the formula, as are most-likely concepts that viewers will stick with one week after the next. What makes these shows so intriguing is that they are procedural/serialized hybrids, meaning that they tell long-term stories while also giving you that case-of-the-week plot. You can miss an episode or two, and then still be able to come back and not be too lost.
There are a number of other decisions that Fox does still have to make, including Last Man Standing, Empire, STAR and then a bunch of bubble shows including The Orville, Lethal Weapon, The Gifted, and others. One of the reasons why the network’s probably been a tad more hesitant than some of their competitors is because they’ve been likely taking a wait-and-see approach to when the new leadership was officially stabilized. We’d expect some more renewals to start churning out sooner rather than later.
