    I’m soooo excited for Prison Break I can’t stand it!!!

  2. kate says:

    Maybe it could report to my DVR to stop scheduling (and then not recording which is why I haven’t done anything about it) Univision which appears to be about to enter season 4 if my eighth grade half a semester of Spanish holds up. It was interesting, somehow my mind went from hearing a news report on a prison riot that happened here yesterday to thinking about Prison Break and contemplating doing a first two seasons binge (it might be the first three seasons, I keep thinking Sona is season 3 but surprise myself that its not) this weekend on Netflix. Before all the TV really starts again.

  3. Nicole Walker says:

    Hope Legends of Tomorrow is done by April 4th, otherwise Miller is up against his old show with Prison Break on Tuesdays at 9 PM.

    That is a looooong wait for Lucifer’s return. May 1st? Yeesh.

  4. Iakovos says:

    I wonder if a more consistent scheduling strategy would benefit FOX. Web’s programming plan always seems so scattershot. On for a few then off for months and back again. And that builds interest and momentum?

  5. Jonathan says:

    Does B99 have a reduced order or will it run into summer?

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Glad the premiere date for Prison Break’s new season have been finally announced! Can’t wait to check out new shows Making History and Shots Fired. Good to know the return dates for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Last Man On Earth, Gotham, and Lucifer.

  7. But when will ends New Girl? and after april 11 will be B99 + New Girl or B99 + The Mick?

  8. R.O.B. says:

    Nobody truly dies on TV anymore, including every Wentworth Miller character

  9. Eric says:

    Wait. Lucifer is coming back next monday…then it goes on a four month break? Why is fox waiting so long to bring it back? It got a full season that means 10+ episodes are still waiting to be aired in the summer…

    • chrisze says:

      Joe Henderson just tweeted this
      ‘Starting Monday, we have 3 new, crazy good episodes of #Lucifer! Then hiatus until May for the rest. Excited to be back on the air soon!’

    • shir says:

      It’s to keep us hanging on-and we are.Then we wait how long to get the DVD of the second season.
      Don’t know what is going on but keep this show coming. It”s the first show (other than Bones) that I have been hooked on since Castle.
      Love this show which scares me because I’ll be hooked and then -oh I don’;t even want to put it out there.

  10. YestoKylie says:

    Glad for Prison Break but why such a long hiatus for Lucifer. Are they trying to make is a Summer show

  11. kmw says:

    Most of this I can agree with but much too long of breaks for Gotham and Lucifer. Now a series finale date for Bones soon I hope

  12. Marie58 says:

    Can’t wait for Prison Break! I’ve been trying to come up with a plausible storyline to explain why Michael is still alive. Finally decided it doesn’t matter… just thrilled that the show is back!

    • wrstlgirl says:

      I’m just going to keep an open mind and let it roll. To much analyzing ruins the fun, lmao!! I’m just so happy it’s back :-)

  13. Candace says:

    So New Girl came back last week, is airing 4 new episodes, then going on hiatus for 2 months with 2 episodes left?

  14. Can’t wait for Leighton Meester to be back on tv again!!
    AND, SO excited for Prison Break!!!! Come on Lincoln & Michael!!!

  15. Frederick George Wicks says:

    Lucifer is in my top 3 tv shows behind GOT & TWD.
    I really look forward to every weeks episode. Can someone explain to me why the show would take a month off….return with 3 episodes , only to be followed by a 4 MONTH break to conclude the season????????

  16. Frederick George Wicks says:

    I love Lucifer it’s my third favorite television show behind Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead . I really look forward to every week’s episode. Can someone explain to me. Please why the show took a month off return for three episodes and is now taking a four month break before it returns again
