Fox Fall Schedule: Five Shows Canceled, Two Added

at .

Even before it presents its official 2011-2012 schedule next week, Fox has made it clear there won't be a lot of room on its upcoming calendar. The network committed months ago to new programs The X-Factor and Terra Nova.

Therefore, it didn't come as a major surprise last night when five shows were axed. With apologies to fans of the following, the canceled series are:

  • Human Target
  • Breaking In
  • Traffic Light
  • Lie to Me
  • The Chicago Code

Cal Lightman and Jarek Wysocki: Solid characters on unpopular shows.

Fox also picked up a pair of highly-anticipated dramas. They are:

  1. Alcatraz: Produced by J.J. Abrams, starring Jorge Garcia.
  2. The Finder: A Bones spin-off, featuring Geoff Stults as a former military policeman, aired as a back-door pilot last month.

Fox will announce its complete schedule on Monday, May 16.
