Fox’s reborn “24” spinoff, “24: Legacy,” will start off with a bang but you’ll have to wait until next year for the fireworks. The network announced Monday it’ll launch after the Super Bowl on Feb. 5, joining a small, elite group of Fox dramas that previously have had the post-Super Bowl berth, “House” and “The X-Files.”

“Prison Break” — the reboot — arrives next year, too, joining the first Fox midseason lineup without “American Idol” in 14 years. “Break” will be expected to pick up some of the slack on Thursdays.

And on Wednesdays? That task will essentially fall to Lee Daniels, whose “Star” — with Queen Latifah — will launch on Wednesdays in the winter. “Star” will air when “Empire” goes on midwinter hiatus.

Meanwhile, the network also said the new fall schedule — returning mostly intact — will add a pair of adaptations, “The Exorcist” and “Lethal Weapon,” to the lineup.

Here’s the Fox fall schedule:

MONDAY: “Gotham” (8 p.m.); “Lucifer” (9 p.m.).

TUESDAY: “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (8 p.m.); “New Girl” (8:30 p.m.); “Scream Queens” (9 p.m.).

WEDNESDAY: “Lethal Weapon” (8 p.m.), with Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford — most recently in “Rectify”; “Empire” (9 p.m.).

THURSDAY: “Rosewood” (8 p.m.); “Bones” (9 p.m.).

FRIDAY: “Hell’s Kitchen” (8 p.m.); “The Exorcist” (9 p.m.), based on the ’73 film, with Geena Davis.


SUNDAY: “NFL on Fox” (7 p.m.); “The OT”/“Bob’s Burgers” (7:30 p.m.); “The Simpsons” (8 p.m.); “Son of Zorn” (8:30 p.m.), a live action/animated show about an (animated) warrior who returns to Southern California, with Jason Sudeikis and Cheryl Hines; “Family Guy” (9 p.m.); “The Last Man on Earth” (9:30 p.m.).
