A roundup of news Friday from the Television Critics Association winter meeting, at which TV networks and streaming services are presenting details on upcoming programs.
REVIVING PAST AT FOX;Fox is trying to push forward its rebuilding process with a reliance on its past.
The network announced that it will make a new version of "Prison Break," the action series that aired from 2005-2009. Both stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are on board to reprise their roles as the brothers that were at the series' centre. No other details were made available.
Fox is also returning again to "24," this time without star Kiefer Sutherland. It has ordered a pilot of a new series, "24: Legacy," with a new cast and story about trying to stop the activation of terror cells inside the United States. Fox had already brought the original series back once before with the summer series "24: Live Another Day."
Later this month, Fox is starting a six-episode new run of "The X-Files," with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. And it might not be the last of that series, either.
"We would love to do this again," said Gary Newman, co-chairman and CEO of the Fox Television Group. "We would be on board if schedules could be worked out."
