Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Gotham, and Empire have all earned renewal orders by Fox. The network’s confirmed Empire and Gotham have received season two orders while Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be back for season three.

Fox says their new dramatic series Empire starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson is the “only new broadcast drama this season to grow from week one to week two.” The series features music by Timbaland and was created by Oscar nominee Lee Daniels (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) and Emmy winner Danny Strong (Game Change).

Gotham starring Ben McKenzie and Donal Logue has been averaging 10.6 million viewers over its first season. The series is based on the DC Comics characters and focuses on Gotham City before the emergence of Batman.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s second season has grown in viewership by 17% over its first season, so the news of a third season order doesn’t come as any surprise. The half-hour comedy series stars Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher and was created by Michael Shur and Dan Goor.
