In a refreshing chance of pace, Fox Broadcasting will showcase older performers in new sitcoms this fall, according to the schedule unveiled by the network Monday. There aren't a ton of new series on the FOX lineup, but the strategy is largely built around the addition of Thursday Night Football debuting this fall. So it'll be interesting to see how the supernatural element is dealt with, especially since FOX just axed its other two more overtly supernatural shows Lucifer and The Exorcist. From "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's" Charlie Day and writer Paul Fruchbom. Check out trailers for these new shows below.

Fox will bring back "Last Man Standing", which stars Tim Allen and ran for six seasons on ABC.

The third new comedy, "Rel", stars Lil Rel Howery ("Get Out", "Insecure") and was inspired by his life as a single dad.


The Cool Kids (Fridays, 8:30 p.m. ET) Three guy friends in a retirement community are the top dogs until they're blown out of the water by the newest member of the community - a female rebel who's ready to challenge their place. The comedy also stars Sinbad ("A Different World", "The Sinbad Show", "Jingle All The Way"), Jess "Hilarious" Moore ("Wild 'N Out") and Jordan L. Jones ("NCIS: Los Angeles", "Wisdom of the Crowd").

The Passage (midseason)The Passage is an epic, character-driven thriller about a secret government medical facility experimenting with a risky virus that could either cure all disease or cause the downfall of the human race.

Emmy and Golden Globe Award victor and EMPIRE co-creator Danny Strong partners with David Elliot ("Four Brothers") to tell the emotional story of one woman's fight for the innocence of others, as well as her own. Led by a fierce and fearless female lawyer (Rachelle Lefevre) with a hunger for justice, the team reopens investigations, putting their own lives in danger to exonerate the innocent that were "proven" guilty. Russell Hornsby, Nikki M. James, Vincent Kartheiser, Riley Smith, and Clare O'Connor also star. Neil deGrasse Tyson will host "Cosmos: Possible Worlds", a series for the sping. The new season will reveal previously uncharted realms, including lost worlds and worlds to come, and those that we may one day inhabit in a thrilling future we can still have.
