FOX Sets Premiere Dates for 'The Simpsons,' 'Bless the Harts,' 'Bob's Burgers' and 'Family Guy'

FOX has today announced the return of its Sunday night, Animation Domination lineup this fall - with new seasons of The Simpsons, Bless the Harts, Bob's Burgers and Family Guy.

All four animated comedies will launch their new seasons on Sunday, September 27.

Season 32 of The Simpsons will kick off the night at 8/7c. followed by Season 2 of Bless the Harts at 8:30/7:30c., Season 11 of Bob's Burgers at 9/8c. and ending with Season 19 of Family Guy at 9:30/8:30c.

Animated shows were largely able to avoid the entertainment industry shutdown as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic. That explains why the broadcast network has new episodes ready for the fall - with the second season of Duncanville and new series The Great North set to join the animated block in 2021. FOX opted to release a pandemic proof schedule for the remainder of 2020 instead of counting on its regular schedule to get back into production at some point this summer.
