FOX's 'Rosewood' Gets Full Season Order

FOX has officially picked up its Wednesday night procedural Rosewood for a full 22-episode season. The order comes as it has been the network's highest rated new show this fall. Season-to-date, the drama is averaging 7.3 million total viewers and a 2.2 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic.

Rosewood was created by Todd Harthan for 20th Century Fox TV. The drama stars Morris Chestnut as Miami's top private pathologist, with Jaina Lee Ortiz as the detective he frequently partners with and Lorraine Toussaint as his mother. The cast also includes Gabrielle Dennis, Anna Konkle and Domenick Lombardozzi.

"Rosewood has proven to be a real self-starter for us, which is a tremendous feat on this highly on this highly competitive night," said Fox entertainment president David Madden. "Todd Harthan, Morris, Jaina, Lorraine and the entire cast and crew have done a fantastic job creating a gorgeous, sexy world that is the perfect complement to Empire. The upcoming episodes are so compelling as we build out the family dynamics, and with today's order, we're excited to explore the world of Rosewood even further this season."

Rosewood is the third new show to have additional episodes ordered this fall - following NBC's Blindspot (for 9 episodes) and ABC's Quantico (for 6 episodes).
