Fox has handed out a first season renewal to freshman drama Rosewood. The series has been picked up for a full 22 episodes.
“‘Rosewood’ has proven to be a real self-starter for us, which is a tremendous feat on this highly competitive night. Todd Harthan, Morris (Chestnut), Jaina (Lee Ortiz), Lorraine (Toussaint) and the entire cast and crew have done a fantastic job creating a gorgeous, sexy world that is the perfect complement to ‘Empire,’” said David Madden, president, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “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 lead in to Empire and has averaged 7.3 million viewers a week.
