Mark your calendars because Fox has already released their 2016 midseason premiere lineup! As the New Year approaches, so do new seasons of your favorite shows. And there is a lot to catch up on before 2015 ends.

The New Year will see some new shows premiering, like “Bordertown,” a new animated comedy executive-produced by “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, and “Lucifer” a black comedy about the “Lord of Hell” who moves to Los Angles.

But probably the most exciting news is the premiere dates of old favorites like “New Girl,” which will be returning for its fifth season on Jan. 5. And of course, the passionate “American Idol” fan base won’t want to miss the “farewell season” of the singing competition when it kicks off on Wednesday, Jan. 6 and Thursday, Jan. 7.
