However, it is not until KTVU officially adopted the new graphics that it also included the updated Fox wordmark on both their on-screen bug and their opening sequences on January 22, 2020.

The opening sequences were enhanced to have a semi-3D appearance, coinciding with the introduction of its new graphics, which were first seen on sister stations KSAZ-TV in Phoenix and WTVT in Tampa–St. Petersburg in 2019. The update also took effect on KICU for its 7pm newscast. However, it continues to use the "Fox Circle Laser 2" logo instead of "KTVU Plus" on its on-screen bug.
