Fox has opted not to renew the freshman dramas for second seasons. The John Slattery-led sci-fi drama NEXT and the Kim Cattrall-starring soapy southern gothic drama Filthy Rich premiered in October and September, respectively, more than a year after they were ordered to series in May 2019. "Sources say that rising production costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic played a significant part in the decision," reports Variety's Will Thorne and Joe Otterson. "Fox will air the remaining episodes of both shows, which were held back for fall due to the pandemic situation. Filthy Rich and NEXT failed to draw strong enough audience responses to merit a second outing, with Filthy Rich averaging only 3.2 million viewers and a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49 after seven days of delayed viewing, and NEXT drawing only 2.8 million viewers per episode and the same rating in delayed."
