Kevin Bacon, The Following, Mindy Kaling, Mindy Project


Rejoice, fans of laughing and serial killers!

Fox has renewed three comedies and one drama for next season, E! News has confirmed.

The network ordered a fourth season of New Girl, a third season of The Mindy Project and a second season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, while Kevin Bacon's serial killer thriller The Following is set to return for a third season.

"These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera," Fox bosses Kevin Reilly and Joe Earley said in a joint statement. "All four are core assets within our 2014-2015 portfolio of content, and we're really happy to bring them back to our Fox fans for another season."

Brooklyn Nine-Nine recently picked up the trophy for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Andy Samberg) at the Golden Globes.

And though it's been on hiatus (set to return on April 1), Reilly has been a vocal supporter of The Mindy Project, saying, "I love the show. I think the creativity of it, it's really on the money right now."

 In addition to the four pickups, Glee is set to return for a sixth (and most likely final) season, while Fox announced The X Factor will not be returning for a fourth season as Simon Cowell is set to return to the UK version of the reality singing competition. Additionally, Sleepy Hollow is set to return for a second season, while Bones was picked up for a 10th season.

Additional pickups will be announced later.
