[TV] Random Renewals & Changes on Shows

August 1, 2012  |  TV

So it’s that time of the week again where I give you a breakdown of what was renewed, canceled, what’s going to change in what show and the what not.  This compiled list of news took place over the past week or so and well let’s get right down to it:

  • Falling Skies” has been renewed for Season 3: It was announced earlier last month that the famous TNT series has been renewed and that we will get to see more of Noah Wyle fighting off the aliens in 2013, so for those of you watching, this is great news! 
  • “Psych”‘s 7th Season will feature a two hour musical special: So come next season, “Psych” will air a two-hour musical with entirely original music.  The show is expected to return this fall for Season 7 with a new time-slot and 16 episodes.
  • “Teen Wolf” has been renewed for Season 3: Earlier last month at Comic-Con, MTV announced the renewal of the supernatural show and  doubled the episode order all the way up to 24 episodes.  The next season should be premiering next year and will definitely turn those werewolf lovers into a happy lot.
  • “Unforgettable” will get a cast shake-up for Season 2: Since the show was cancelled earlier this summer mostly every actor would have jumped ship and found another pilot to star in, but luckily for some the show got picked up for a summer season and the leads were not tied down to something else.  But that simply means there are some of the regulars that won’t make it on the show.  Michael Gaston, Kevin Rankin, and Daya Vaidya won’t be returning next season however Dylan Walsh, Jane Curtin, and lead Poppy Montgomery will definitely show up.  This just gives the whole show a brand new face to deal with.
  • No More Eric “McSteamy” Dane on “Grey’s Anatomy”: This was basically the worst news I read last week in which Eric Dane, Shonda Rhimes, and ABC all confirmed that he won’t be a series regular anymore.  He will appear in a couple of episodes of Season 9 to wrap up his story line but then that’s about it.  This basically means that there will be no more McSteamy, Lexie, and Teddy so far.  I hope this will be the last of that but I am guessing that if the show doesn’t end next year I will definitely be bailing out!  That and Kate Walsh will leave “Private Practice” after the first 13 episodes of next season. If the actors are jumping ship don’t you think it’s time that we do?
  • AMC’s “The Killing” has been cancelled: There will be no season 3 of the popular scary “Killing” show on AMC after this year’s aired episodes.  It seems that they couldn’t renew it because it wasn’t really doing that great in the ratings.  Of course the show’s producers are trying to find it a new home but most likely it will not get that.  I guess that means one less show to watch for those of you watching it.
  • Comedy show “Louie” has been renewed for Season 4: Comedian Louis C.K. is doing something right because his show “Louie” just got another season order for 13 episodes.  It’s been doing extra well in the ratings and well that just means it’s safe to start watching it if you haven’t and if you do then your show will be here for another year.
  • “Dancing with the Stars” (All-Stars) Cast has finally been announced: It seems that the next season of “Dancing with the Stars” will feature previous stars, winners, runner-ups, and fan favorites which is insanely awesome.  The coolest thing is that my favorite Kirstie Alley will be back on it.  The list includes: Kirstie Alley (of course), Emmitt Smith, Bristol Palin, Pamela Anderson, Joey Fatone, Helio Castroneves, Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson, Kelly Monaco, Drew Lachey, Apolo Anton Ohno, and Gilles Marini.  The final contestant will be decided by the fans between Kyle Massey, Sabrina Bryan or Carson Kressley (I hope they choose Carson!).  The next season comes back September 24.

With that I conclude this week’s edition of TV News.  Hope it helps and you get to know that your favorites are coming back and what not :D
