In a surprise move, Fox announced today that it’s renewing Lie to Me for a third season and picking up Human Target for a second, The Live Feed reports.
Just yesterday conventional wisdom held that the network would have to choose between the two, as it appeared it only had room on its fall schedule for one of the under-performing dramas. What a difference a day makes.
According to The Live Feed, Matt Miller (Chuck) will take over as showrunner of Human Target, with Jonathan Steinberg continuing as executive producer.
Fox also gave a greenlight to Ridealong, the new police drama from Shawn Ryan (The Shield, Lie to Me), the oil-industry soap Midland (possibly now called Lone Star), and single-camera comedies Traffic Light and Keep Hope Alive.
