Missing Persons Unit,’ and More Set Midseason Premiere Dates at Fox



As Hollywood returns to production following this year’s historic WGA and SAG-Aftra strikes, Fox has announced winter and spring premiere dates for its returning scripted series including “Alert: Missing Persons Unit,” “The Cleaning Lady,” and its latest comedy “Animal Control.”

Along with “The Cleaning Lady,” “Alert: Missing Persons Unit” officially returns on Tuesday, March 5. Co-created by John Eisendrath and Jamie Foxx, the procedural drama set in the Philadelphia Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit (MPU). Headed by police officers Jason Grant (Scott Caan) and Nikki Batista (Dania Ramirez), viewers are taken on a ride with the team as they work to find the missing, abducted, or kidnapped, and help reunite them with their loved ones before it’s too late. Carla Kettner serves as executive producer and showrunner. John Eisendrath, Jamie Foxx, Datari Turner, Jon Cowan, Brandon Sonnier, Brandon Margolis, Sean Hennen and Brad Turner are executive producers. Sony Pictures Television and FOX Entertainment co-produce.

Now in its third season, “The Cleaning Lady” follows Thony De La Rosa (Élodie Yung), a Cambodian doctor who comes to the U.S. for a medical treatment to save her ailing son, but when the system fails and attempts to push her down, Thony refuses to be marginalized, and instead takes matters into her own hands. Forced to use unconventional measures to protect her family and save the ones she loves, Thony further crosses the moral line as she gets deeper entwined in the criminal underbelly of Las Vegas. Miranda Kwok developed the series. Kwok and Jeannine Renshaw will serve as showrunners and executive producers of season three. Rose Marie Vega and Paola Suarez also are executive producers. Shay Mitchell and David Dean Portelli are executive consultants.

“Animal Control” returns on March 6, landing between new season premieres for “The Masked Singer” and “Family Guy,” which has seemingly moved from its usual Sunday night timeslot for a Wednesday night telecast.

Fox’s Animation Sundays starts off Sunday, Jan. 7, immediately following the Fox NFL Doubleheader with a special preview of the all-new series, “Grimsburg.” Starring and executive-produced by Emmy Award winner Jon Hamm, Grimsburg centers on Marvin Flute (Hamm), “who may be the greatest detective ever to catch a cannibal clown and correctly identify a mid-century modern armoire. But there’s one mystery he still can’t crack — himself. To do that he must return to Grimsburg, a town where everyone has a secret or three, and redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow detectives, his ferocious ex-wife and his lovably unstable son,” reads the description.

Following “Grimsburg,” animated series schedule continues with new episodes of “Krapopolis,” “Bob’s Burgers” and the season four premiere of “The Great North.” “Grimsburg” and “The Great North” will make their time period premieres on Sunday, Feb. 18, as the night begins with new episodes of “The Simpsons” and “Krapopolis.”
