FX had a bit of good news today as freshman border drama 'The Bridge' was officially announced to return for season 2 in 2014, though personally, we're more excited to revisit our friend in the hat, Raylan Givens of 'Justified'! Raylan won't return until some time in 2014, but you don't have to wait that long to find out what he and Boyd Crowder get up to when 'Justified' season 5 debuts "A Murder of Crowes" next year!
More sad news out of Hollywood today, following last week's loss of 'That '70s Show' actress Lisa Robin Kelly, as former 'Famous Jett Jackson' star Lee Thompson Young has been found dead at the age of 29. The former Disney Channel star had currently been appearing in TNT's 'Rizzoli & Isles,' while his death is believed to be suicide based on evidence at the scene.
It ranked among the sadder days in TV history when we finally said goodbye to Tina Fey's '30 Rock' after seven wonderful years, but our despair may already have been lifted. The former 'SNL' writer and '30 Rock' lead will return to NBC along with '30 Rock' co-showrunner Robert Carlock and writer-producer Colleen McGuinness for a brand-new female-centric workplace comedy, but how involved will Fey actually be?
Earlier today we learned from the HBO panel at the ongoing TCA press tour that in-development projects like 'Criminal Justice' and a 'Transporter' TV series had largely been stalled, but the premium cable network had nothing but good things to say about the futures of its current flagship hits, from 'Game of Thrones' to 'True Blood' and 'The Newsroom.' Less certain however, is the fate of Larry David's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'
HBO Sundays will get a bit more prestigious tonight with the debut of 'The Newsroom' season 2, but you needn't wait until the evening hours for one of the hottest previews of the fall! 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 will pour out this September, and from the looks of the full trailer debuting on TV tonight, Nucky Thompson is in for his most dangerous year on the boardwalk yet.
As HBO prepares for the event of the year in next Sunday's 'Game of Thrones' finale, the premium cable network has mapped out the rest of its major tentpoles as well. The fourth season of 'Boardwalk Empire' will debut mid-September, while Danny McBride fan-favorite 'Eastbound & Down' will return for its final eight episodes a few weeks later. HBO also announce a premiere for Stephen Merchant's 'Hello Ladies,' but when can viewers get in on the action?
And lo, the fourth season of 'Arrested Development' debuted on Netflix this past Sunday to worldwide fanfare, though by Tuesday the excitement had faded. The experimental 15-episode season greatly polarized fans and critics alike, but now that Netflix has attained the "huge" numbers it sought, is 'Arrested Development' guaranteed a fifth season, or even a movie?
This past weekend during 'SNL's' heartwarming season finale, cast and crew bid adieu to both Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, while less in focus was the fate of fellow veteran Jason Sudeikis. Sudeikis has kept mum on the prospect of his 'SNL' future, but has cast member Jay Pharoah accidentally spilled the beans?
We never would have believed it, but it seems Jack Bauer has officially been called back to duty. Just days after FOX announced that Kiefer Sutherland's post-'24' vehicle 'Touch' had been canceled in its second season, the network made official its plans to return the counter-terrorism thriller in a new limited run series to begin airing in mid 2014. Find out about Jack Bauer's big '24' return inside!
Sure, like most outlets we cracked a joke that 'Touch's recent cancellation would allow series star Kiefer Sutherland to finally get that long-stalled '24' movie off the ground, but who's laughing in real-time now? New reports have emerged that the Jack Bauer franchise will return to FOX as a limited series, with Kiefer Sutherland in talks to reprise his famous role. Find out if '24' will really return inside!
