Fox has cancelled five current shows and is adding three new ones, E Online reports.
In a ruthless move, Fox has also canceled ‘Lie to Me,’ ‘The Chicago Code,’ and ‘Traffic Light.’ The network has also canceled ‘Human Target’ after just two seasons, as well as the new Christian Slater comedy ‘Breaking In.’

Ruthless, indeed. But with that comes three new shows to expect for the fall.

Also added to the Fox network is the drama ‘Alcatraz’ from J.J. Abrams, the mastermind behind ‘Lost’ and ‘Fringe.’
