Our favorite supernatural series is coming to an end.

NBC has announced that Grimm will return with its sixth and final season on Friday, January 6 at 8pm ET/PT.

The series will close with the battle we’ve all been waiting for: Nick vs. Captain Renard.

As for events leading into the final season, the nefarious forces of Black Claw have been silenced and Nick (David Giuntoli) faces an all too familiar foe in Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz). Now in the seat of power as the mayor-elect of Portland, Renard is poised to bring rise to his own brand of law and order. Nick must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee). It will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the peace.

Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) grapple with bringing a child into a new and tumultuous world, and Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) faces unsettling identity issues as her former self-lurks below the surface. Russell Hornsby and Reggie Lee will also star in the final season.

Grimm reached the 100-episode milestone last season but was cut from 22 episodes to 13 for the upcoming sixth season which had us all wondering if it would even have legs for a seventh.

The series was created by David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (Hollywood Game Night, Hot in Cleveland) serve as executive producers along with Greenwalt and Kouf. “Grimm” is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production.

‘The Good Wife’ Ending After Season 7


Well, that’s one way to announce some big news.

CBS has just announced that The Good Wife is officially coming to an end after seven seasons through a commercial during Super Bowl 50. The series will say its final goodbye in May which means there are only nine episodes left.

Earlier last month at the Television Critics Association winter session, Glenn Geller announced during his executive session that Good Wife creators Michelle and Robert King would not be returning after the seventh season. That was some pretty big news and no one could really see how the show would move forward without them.

According to Vulture, just shortly after TCA, Julianna Margulies made a shocking comment at the Casting Society of America’s third annual Artios Awards saying, “I surprised Robert and Michelle tonight.” “They didn’t know I was going to be here. They think I’m here for them, but I’m unemployed come April, and I think you haven’t seen me in a while, at least not in person, so I thought I should show up.”

Can anyone say DRAMA?!

I just hope she ends up with Jason (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

‘Hindsight’ Canceled at VH1 Despite Season 2 Renewal

hindsight-vh1-tv-review

Just when you thought all was right with the world, VH1 goes ahead and cancels one of their best new shows of the 2015 season.

Hindsight, the time-traveling comedy which was renewed back in March, was the latest scripted series from VH1. The series starred Laura Ramsey as Becca, who was sent back in time, to the day of her first wedding in 1995, to fix all of her mistakes and make the ‘right’ decisions the second time around.

The network released a statement: “Scripted series have been a successful part of VH1’s primetime lineup since 2010 and will continue to be in the future. We love Hindsight and couldn’t be more proud of the series. But in this overcrowded and rapidly changing climate, we need to carve out VH1’s distinct place in the scripted marketplace and deliver the biggest audiences possible for our series. As a result, we’re no longer moving forward with a second season of the show. We’re so appreciative of show creator Emily Fox, the cast, and the creative and production teams and look forward to working with them again.”

NBC Cancels ‘Hannibal’ After Three Seasons

HANNIBAL --

NBC is serving up its last course of Hannibal.

According to TVLine, The Peacock network has officially canceled Bryan Fuller’s thriller series after three seasons.

“NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers,” Fuller said in a statement. “Jen Salke [NBC President] and her team have been fantastic partners and creatively supportive beyond measure. HANNIBAL is finishing his last course at NBC’s table this summer, but a hungry cannibal can always dine again. And personally, I look forward to my next meal with NBC.”

NBC added: “We have been tremendously proud of Hannibal over its three seasons. Bryan and his team of writers and producers, as well as our incredible actors, have brought a visual palette of storytelling that has been second to none in all of television — broadcast or cable. We thank Gaumont and everyone involved in the show for their tireless efforts that have made Hannibal an incredible experience for audiences around the world.”

The news isn’t all that surprising considering the season three premiere garnered 2,6 million viewers and a 0.7 rating.

But let’s not lose all hope just yet. DeLaurentiis Co. is exploring other options.

NBC Cancels ‘About a Boy,’ ‘Marry Me,’ ‘One Big Happy’

NUP_164939_0387.jpg

NBC is just not in a laughing mood today.

The Peacock announced today that they’ve officially canceled About a Boy, One Big Happy, and Marry Me. It’s like they don’t want the stars or Happy Endings to be happy or something.

About a Boy, led by Minnie Driver and David Walton, was somehow the most successful of the three comedies, which isn’t really saying much. The series was in its sophomore season and just wasn’t pulling in enough viewers to keep it on the air.

Same goes for the Ken Marino, Casey Wilson comedy, which should now go by “Divorce Me” instead of Marry Me. The series, created by David Caspe (Happy Endings), was only averaging a 1.5 rating but also didn’t really get the marketing push from NBC that it deserved, despite the additional five-episode pickup it received in the fall.

One Big Happy helmed from executive producer Ellen DeGeneres and showrunner Liz Feldman, and sadly came and went with only a 1.4 rating. The LGBT-themed family comedy series starred Elisha Cuthbert, Nick Zano and Kelly Brook, and finished its six-episode run at the end of last month.

The Following is officially dead at Fox.

The network announced on Friday that the psychological thriller series led by Kevin Bacon has been canceled after three seasons.

The series, which premiered to strong numbers when it premiered back in 2013, has been sliding in viewership and wasn’t bring back the audience numbers it was once attracting.

The Following was a big deal when the news first came out that Kevin Bacon was coming to the small screen. Since then, we’ve seen similar moves like Viola Davis with ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder and even Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams for HBO’s True Detective.

ABC Renews ‘Agent Carter,’ ‘Castle,’ ‘The Goldbergs,’ Shonda Rhimes TGIT Trio and More

It’s time.

May is officially upon us, which means all five networks will announce their decisions for the upcoming 2015-16 TV season. Has your favorite show been renewed or canceled? Let’s find out.

ABC announced late Thursday night that they’ve renewed a whopping 22 series. That’s quite a lot of shows, but sadly not all of them are our favorites. The network is giving freshman comedies black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, and even Galavant a second season along with dramas Agent Carter, American Crime, Secrets & Lies, and How to Get Away with Murder. Even shows that were teetering on the bubble like Nashville (for Season 4) and long-running drama series Castle (for Season 8) were given life for another season.

Additional renewals include the rest of Shonda Rhimes TGIT trio, Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, as well as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Once Upon a Time, The Middle, The Goldbergs, and Modern Family. 

Let’s not forget about the alternative shows like America’s Funniest Home Video, The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, Shark Tank, Shark Tank: Beyond the Tank, and 20/20 which are all coming back for another season.

As far as cancelations go, Cristela, Revenge, Resurrection, The Taste and my personal favorite which I’m sad to see go, Forever, has joined the likes of Manhattan Love Story and Selfie. Still no word yet on Last Man Standing.

FOX Cancels ‘The Mindy Project’ After 3 Seasons; May Live on at Hulu

Fox is moving on from The Mindy Project. 

The network has announced its decision after spending three years with the amazingly talented Mindy Kaling and her group of quirky doctors, nurses and none other than Danny Castellano a.k.a. Chris Messina.

The series took a turn for the better after bringing on Charlie Grandy, but that just wasn’t enough to save the comedy series from returning to its home at Fox, where it’s been for the last three seasons.

Now don’t freak out just yet. That doesn’t mean that we won’t see Mindy and Danny’s baby anytime soon.

Streaming service Hulu is in talks with Universal Television, the studio behind the series, to bring it on board for the next couple of seasons, if not more.

This could be a good fit for both parties as Hulu already owns the streaming rights and is currently offering all 67 episodes on its service.

What do you think about the news? Will you still plan on watching if it moves over to Hulu? Let us know in the comments below.

 

ABC Cancels ‘Revenge’ After 4 Seasons

MADELEINE STOWE

The soapy drama that just wouldn’t die has finally come to an end. According to EW, ABC has just announced that they’ve canceled Revenge, the drama series starring Madeleine Stowe and Emily VanCamp, after four seasons.

The series which was a total success when it debuted back in 2011, just hasn’t kept its momentum over the last couple of seasons. After killing off main characters and revealing major plot lines, there really wasn’t much left to tune-in to. Normally I’d say, “but that’s just me,” but it really isn’t. After premiering to 10 million viewers, Revenge has garnered only about 4.5 million viewers as of late with a 1.0 rating in 2015.

The show’s executive producer Sunil Nayar told EW, “We can officially tell our fans that this will be the end of the story. We’ve been talking to the network and we all just wanted to make sure that we felt very confident. Now that everybody has seen the finale—which is fabulous—everybody understands that as much as we all adore the show, it has hit exactly the mark it needed to, to end. This is the series finale of Revenge that will be airing in a couple weeks.”

The series finale of Revenge will air Sunday, May 10 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
