Nathan Fillion said, “[I’ve worked] with amazing people that I love so very, very much… [and] I’ll miss them dearly, but its been eight years since I haven’t had a plan for that first Monday after Comic-Con, when production on Castle traditionally resumes.
Fillion also confirmed that the Beckett- and Stana Katic-less Season 9 — had there been one — would have picked up after a meaningful time jump.
In addition to all 22 episodes from what would be the show’s final season, the DVD set also features two audio commentaries (Nathan Fillion and guest star Adam Baldwin talk “Cool Boys,” while Jon Huertas, Seamus Dever and writer Barry O’Brien revisit “Heartbreaker”), bloopers and a featurette in which the cast’s detective skills are tested by a puzzle room a la Season 8’s “The Blame Game.”
Castle vet Nathan Fillion is sticking with the ABC family, with a multi-episode arc on Modern Family. During Season 8 of TV’s No.2-rated comedy, Fillion will play “a local weatherman who gets involved with the Dunphys,” executive producer Steven Levitan shared on Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. His previous TV-comedy credits include Community, Drunk History and Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place.
Katic can be seen on stage in White Rabbit Red Rabbit, a play in which each performance is a different actor with a new script, on Sept. 26 at the Westside Theatre in New York City.
Lifetime has chosen not to renew Devious Maids for a fifth season, just weeks after the Marc Cherry soap ended Season 4 on a bloody good cliffhanger.
As fans will recall, the finale revealed Gail Fleming to be the season’s big murderer, Evelyn and Adrian got a divorce, Rosie revealed her pregnancy (while concealing the truth about Tucker’s paternity), Carmen and Dani reconciled, Zoila got her old job back and Genevieve found new love… with a woman.
The finale then jumped one year into the future, where Marisol suddenly went missing — or was she kidnapped? — during her wedding to Peter.
GIRLFRIEND’S GUIDE TO DIVORCE
The Bravo series’ fifth season will be its final one, per The Hollywood Reporter.
The upcoming third through fifth seasons will consist of 19 episodes total, which the series will film during the next nine months; Season 3 will be seven episodes long, while Seasons 4 and 5 will have six episodes each.
The network plans to separate the seasons with shorter-than-normal windows of time.
Girlfriends’ wrapped its second season in February with an average 660,000 weekly total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating, down just a bit from its freshman run and ending on a high note, with 765,000 viewers. The scripted dramedy — the network’s first — has helped establish Bravo as a destination for more than reality shows.
The HBO comedy will be ending after Season 6. HBO has confirmed Girls‘ renewal for a sixth and final season.
“Lena Dunham and her brilliant collaborators, including Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, have given HBO a signature series of rare wit and intelligence,” HBO president Michael Lombardo says. “They are exceptional talents, and I can’t wait to see what Lena, Jenni and Judd have in store for the final seasons of this unique show, and look forward to working with them on future projects.”
Not even Grimm‘s magic stick can fix everything: The supernatural series will come to a close at the end of Season 6, NBC announced Monday.
The final season will begin on Friday, Jan. 6, at 8/7c.
In April, NBC shaved Grimm‘s 22-episode order to 13, which was the first signal that the drama might not be back for a seventh season. In July, members of the show’s cast told TVLine that they were unsure about whether or not the drama would be back — just like they had been many times in the past.
“We’ve been talking about that for three years,” Silas Weir Mitchell said. “Like, is this the end? We don’t know.” His on-screen wife Bree Turner added, “We’ve just always been very present and very appreciative and it’s just been a super fun ride.”
And because of that, David Giuntoli said, “It’s a gratitude season, not a funeral season.”
I AM CAIT
E! is not moving forward with a third season of the Jenner-led docu-series, the star confirmed on Twitter.
I Am Cait, which chronicled Jenner’s new life as a transgender woman, arrived in July 2015 to huge ratings — its premiere drew 2.7 million viewers and a 1.2 demo rating, on par with Keeping Up With the Kardashians — but slowly declined as the first season progressed; the finale netted 1.2 million.
By the time Season 2 rolled around in March, viewership had dropped off considerably; only 745,000 viewers tuned in for the premiere of what would become the show’s final season.
INSIDE AMY SCHUMER
The Emmy-winning series wrapped its fourth season in June, but a fifth season had already been ordered by Comedy Central back in January.
MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER
ABC has cancelled the Hayley Atwell-fronted Marvel series after two acclaimed-yet-little-seen seasons.
The show’s low ratings, however, likely made a third season cost-prohibitive for ABC. The Season 2 finale in March pulled in just 2.35 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, hitting and tying series lows.
Agent Carter‘s first and second seasons — which totalled just 18 episodes — aired during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s midseason breaks.
Atwell will remain in the ABC fold, however as the star of the network’s new drama Conviction.
Atwell plays the brilliant-but-rebellious daughter of a Clinton-like political family, who is forced into taking a job as the head of Los Angeles’ newly created Conviction Integrity Unit. Along with her team of lawyers, investigators and forensic experts, she has two weeks to examine cases where there’s credible suspicion that the wrong person may have been convicted of a crime.
The Showtime drama will not be returning for a fourth season, meaning that Sunday’s Season 3 finale — which concluded with the death of Green’s long-suffering, demonically tortured heroine — was actually the series finale. Ddirector John Logan said, “[The decision] was made a while ago. The show, to me, has always been about Vanessa Ives and her struggle with faith. I knew, sooner or later, it would get to a point of apotheosis, where she would either accept her God or deny her God. Midway through [Season 2] – so, two years ago — as I was planning a third season, I realized, “Oh, I see exactly where this is heading. She’s going to have that moment, and the only way she can truly have it is at the moment of her death.”
So, in my mind, I began shaping the third season thinking about all the characters and how I could lead them to a place that felt like a fitting conclusion. And it was very difficult to do as a writer. I’m deeply attached to these characters. I feel like I created them, even the ones I didn’t, like Victor Frankenstein and the Creature; they’re real parts of me. Penny Dreadful Cancelled Season 4That’s particularly the case with Vanessa Ives. I felt like it was the graceful, perfect way to end her story and therefore the story of all the characters.
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
Freeform drama’s current seventh season will also be its last.
King made the announcement during a Facebook live chat with all five of the Liars — Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell and Sasha Pieterse — by her side.
The final 10 episodes will begin airing in April 2017.
The announcement was made Thursday during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, much to the audible dismay of the thousands of fans in attendance.
In case you need a refresher: When we last saw the pack, Scott — with an ethereal assist from Allison — defeated the Beast, Lydia used her banshee powers to save Mason, Stiles was introduced to his “future career in law enforcement,” Theo was treated to a hellish reunion with his sister, Malia and Braeden worked together to defeat the Desert Wolf, Hayden and Liam reunited, and Kira left Beacon Hills to be with the Skinwalkers.
And Season 6 is already throwing quite a few curveballs our way: Not only did Arden Cho recently announce that Kira is not returning to the show, but we also have a new (potential) enemy on our hands in the form of Garrett, the latest handsome addition to the Beacon Hills High School teaching staff.
THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
The decision was announced Saturday during The CW drama’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con; as you can imagine, the thousands of fans in attendance were not pleased.
TVD‘s seventh season wrapped May 13 with a bittersweet hour: Though Bonnie’s life was spared and Stefan got his long-awaited reunion with Caroline, Damon and Enzo fell prey to the nameless evil within the Armory’s vault, sending them on a west-coast killing spree.
Despite the series notching just 764,000 viewers in its February premiere, HBO renewed Vinyl for a second season days after its launch. The series centered on Bobby Cannavale’s Richie Finestra, a 1970s New York music exec trying to make a career out of the city’s diverse music scene.
In addition to being his third collaboration with HBO, Vinyl marked Winter’s third team-up with executive producer Martin Scorsese. The two previously worked together on Boardwalk Empire and the 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street.
