When To Expect New Episodes On FOX
House will return with fresh medical drama starting April 28. Bones is due back April 14. The comedies Back to You and 'Til Death are scheduled to begin their spring runs April 16. Fox said 24 and three of its Sunday-night animated comedies, The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad, were also back in production.
But it said 24, as earlier reported, wouldn't clock in for its seventh season until next January. And it referred to the animated shows' new wares as "future episodes," making it sound as if those, too, won't be viewed until the dawn of the 2008-09 season.
There was no mention in the network release of King of the Hill, Fox's other Sunday night 'toon. But the network said all four animated series will air a mix of repeats and pre-strike completed new episodes through the end of the season, save Family Guy.
Also absent from Fox's back-to-work decree: the low-rated freshman cop show K-Ville; the sputtering Terminator spinoff, The Sarah Connor Chronicles; and the long-running Prison Break, which wrapped its strike-shortened season Monday night.
