Fox just revealed their primetime schedule for the upcoming winter season which will introduce new shows The Mick, 24: Legacy, Star, My Kitchen Rules, and APB. Bones will also return to the lineup for its final season, while Hell’s Kitchen and Rosewood will be moving to new nights.

The Mick will premiere on January 1, 2017 before moving to January 3rd at 8:30pm. 24: Legacy earned the prime spot behind Super Bowl LI on Sunday, February 5th at 10pm for its premiere, and then it will move to Mondays at 8pm beginning February 6th. Star will have a special premiere in mid-December before settling into its Wednesdays at 9:00pm time slot on January 4th. My Kitchen Rules will pair up with Hell’s Kitchen beginning on Thursday, January 12th. And APB starring Justin Kirk will debut on Monday, February 6th at 9pm.

The Mick Plot: The Mick follows MACKENZIE, aka “MICKEY” (Kaitlin Olson), an unapologetic degenerate who suddenly finds herself stuck raising her spoiled niece and nephews in affluent Greenwich, CT. It’s pretty much everything she never wanted. Regardless, she’s determined to rise to the occasion and transform these little monsters into honest, hard-working, decent members of society – something she knows absolutely nothing about.

Star Plot: Featuring a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, Star is an emotionally powerful drama that follows three talented young singers – desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom – as they navigate the cut-throat music business. The series stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah, Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt and newcomers Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, Brittany O’Grady and Amiyah Scott.

My Kitchen Rules Plot: The No. 1 show in Australia for five years running, My Kitchen Rules pits celebrity duos against each other as they cook and critique each other’s food in Hollywood homes. The celebrity pairs include TV host and *NSYNC member Lance Bass, R&B recording artists Brandy and Ray J, comedian Andrew Dice Clay, country superstar Naomi Judd and reality TV star Brandi Glanville. In addition to being judged by their rival competitors, each team will also be critiqued by two professional chef judges, Curtis Stone and Cat Cora.

24: Legacy Plot: The series chronicles an adrenaline-fueled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series. Starring Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits, 24: Legacy reunites the original series’ award-winning producing team of Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer, Manny Coto and Evan Katz; directors Stephen Hopkins and Jon Cassar; and 24 star Kiefer Sutherland, who all serve as executive producers.

APB Plot: After billionaire engineer GIDEON REEVES (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Justin Kirk) witnesses his best friend’s murder, he takes over Chicago’s troubled 13th District and reboots it as a private police force, challenging the district – including an ambitious, street-smart cop (Natalie Martinez) – to rethink everything about the way they fight crime. The series is from executive producer/director Len Wiseman and executive producer/writer Matt Nix. Trey Callaway, Dennis Kim, Todd Hoffman and Robert Friedman also serve as executive producers.
