Simpsons meet The Griffins, Griffins meet The Simpsons…we knew it was coming, but now we know when!

Fox this week unveiled premiere dates for its fall season and in the process revealed the answer to the one question animation fans have been begging for…when will The Simpsons/Family Guy cross-over event air? The answer is Sunday September 28th following the 26th season premiere of The Simpsons and the sophomore debut of last season’s breakout hit Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The one-hour episode will air at 9 p.m. EST.

The other big date to be aware of is tied to Utopia, the network’s next big attempt at a realty franchise.  The potentially insane, yet innovative, concept transplants 15 normal(ish) Americans to an off the grid location and challenges them with creating their own word. The show bows Sunday September 7th  and then picks up two days later in its usual Tuesday timeslot and then again three days later in its usual Friday timeslot. Going forward the show will air twice week (on Tuesdays and Fridays).

Among the other new premieres getting new launch dates include the highly anticipated Gotham (September 22nd), drama Red Band Society (September 17th), Broadchurch adaptation Gracepoint (October 2nd) and comedy Mulaney (October 5th).

Rainn Wilson drama Backstrom, animated comedy Bordertown, music drama Empire (starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson), Will Forte comedy The Last Man On Earth, Becki Newton comedy Weird Loners and event series Wayward Pines will all premiere sometime in 2015 alongside the returning American Idol and The Following.

Fox also confirmed that Glee will return in midseason for its final run which is expected to be shorted to 13 episodes that will run without interruption.
