THE COOL KIDS: What You Need to Know About the New Fox Series

September 28, 2018 by  

With hundreds of scripted shows on the air—and Fall TV finally upon us—it’s going to be difficult to keep track of everything competing for your attention.

To help you out, we have hub of info about each new show on the day of its premiere: pilot photos, what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Fox’s description: “New multi-camera comedy THE COOL KIDS follows a rowdy, rag-tag group of friends living in a retirement community. HANK (Tony Award nominee David Alan Grier) is the leader of this motley crew, a gruff, opinionated, 21st century Archie Bunker who will go to any lengths to have a good time. His loyal, but less than helpful, friends include CHARLIE (Emmy Award nominee Martin Mull), a bumbling wanderer who constantly goes off on tangents about some bizarre, barely believable episode from his life; and SID (Emmy Award winner Leslie Jordan), a fun-loving hedonist with a flair for the melodramatic. Complicating matters is MARGARET (Emmy Award winner Vicki Lawrence), a brash, confident woman who forces her way into their group and refuses to leave because she’s not going to take crap from anyone – especially not these three. But what unites them all is their shared belief that they’re not done yet – not by a long shot. Growing old with dignity is for chumps. These “cool kids” are determined to make the third act of the lives the craziest one yet, and are willing to break every rule in order to have fun – because, at their age, what do they really have to lose?”

THE COOL KIDS premieres tonight at 8:30/7:30c on Fox.
