FOX’s winter schedule has been set, including the premiere dates for the final season of “Gotham” and three rookie titles.

Seth MacFarlane’s “The Orville” is set to make its season 2 debut just before the end of the year, following a special NFL doubleheader on Sunday, Dec. 30. It will make its return to Thursday nights the following week, after the fifth season premiere of “Gotham.”

With “Empire” and “Star” both going on their usual midseason breaks as well, FOX will be filling out their Wednesday nights with the second season of “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back,” and the debut of “The Masked Singer,” both of which are set to premiere Wednesday, Jan. 2. They will be coming just one day after the winter premieres of “The Gifted” and “Lethal Weapon.”

In addition, freshman drama, “The Passage,” will take “9-1-1’s” 9 p.m. Monday night time slot starting Jan. 14, when it will air immediately following the winter premiere of “The Resident.”

Fellow rookie title, “Proven Innocent,” will premiere over a month later on Friday, Feb. 15, while “Cosmos: Possible Worlds” is set to premiere Sunday, March 3. The same night, both “Bob’s Burgers” and “Family Guy” will be moving back a half-hour to 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., respectively.
