Fox’s announcement that they will be stacking their midseason next year with a slate of renewals is no surprise: The Following, which stars Kevin Bacon, as well as Zooey Deschanel‘s New Girl are two of the network’s top rated series. While some worried about the fates of The Mindy Project and Raising Hope, both have been performing well enough with viewers and critics to warrant a return next year.

So far, the only Fox series in question is the Ryan Murphy-helmed musical series Glee, which is in contract negotiations, and will likely return. On the flip side, it’s looking like Touch won’t be returning after this season.

The network has also said The Following will likely return with another fifteen episode arc next year (the same number it has this year). It appears the networks are starting to see that 22-episode seasons are not the way to move forward.

The Following and the Tuesday night comedies can now join the long-running procedural Bones, which was recently renewed for its 9th season, in Fox’s “safe” category. Look for the comedies to return in the Fall.
