LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Just days after announcing its 2009-10 schedule, FOX is already close to finalizing its fall premiere dates.
Sources have revealed the network is tentatively set to roll out the new seasons of "House" and "Lie to Me" on Monday, September 21 with "Bones" and "Fringe" back on Thursday, September 17. The rest of its scripted lineup will presumably launch around the same period.
As a build up to its Monday premieres, FOX has pushed the start of its repeat run of "Lie to Me" from June 1 to June 15 at 9:00/8:00c. All 13 episodes from its freshman season will rebroadcast in a row, save for a pre-emption on August 10 for the Teen Choice Awards.
Meanwhile, "Bones" creator Hart Hanson has already confirmed the September 17 return date on his Twitter account.
And in other news, "'Til Death" repeats will join FOX's Sunday lineup on July 5 at 7:00/6:00c. The series, which has been off the air since early October, returns for its fourth season on Fridays at 8:30/7:30c this fall.
