And below are the descriptions of the new shows.
Is it canceled? Is it renewed? – Well, now we know.
It was one of the stranger moments with ABC’s comedy “The Neighbors” on Friday night. It was reportedly renewed, but soon after, ABC issued a “hold” on those reports. So what gives?
Well, it’s renewed.
I had to postpone this one a little due to all the cancellations and renewals flying in seconds.
But between all that craziness, ABC also managed to order a flurry of new shows for the fall.
Aside from “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, here are 11 other shows that will see the light of TV screen sometime next season.
Since ABC is ordering quite the amount of new shows (more on that in a minute), no wonder they have to clean house.
Which means Sarah Chalke freshman comedy “How To Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life” will not be coming back. Neither will “Family Tools”.
On the other hand, there is apparently still room for Tim Allen comedy “Last Man Standing”, as it has been renewed for another season.
It’s quite the back-and-forth here…
Back to the renewal front with the good news that ABC has renewed its comedy “The Middle” for fall.
And back to the other side with the fact that the Alphabet has officially axed its freshman drama “Red Widow”.
It was expected, but might still hurt.
ABC has officially canceled its struggling comedy “Happy Endings”, and has also axed “Malibu Country”.
And more renewals are raining in.
ABC has also officially renewed its fairy-tale drama “Once Upon A Time”, as well as “Revenge” and bubble comedy “Suburgatory”.
Shonda Rhimes is doing the happy dance.
The creator and executive producer of hit dramas “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” has just tweeted that both shows have been picked up for next season. That means season 10 for “Grey’s” and a third season for “Scandal”.
Also, “Castle” is coming back for season 6 next year.
And over at NBC, word has just come in that negotiations have been fruitful, and that “Community” has officially been renewed for a fifth season.
Next in line… ABC.
The Alphabet’s publicity department has tweeted that the network has officially renewed its country drama “Nashville” for season 2.
Can I get a yeee-haaww!
This is probably the frontrunner for least surprising news of this year’s up fronts.
ABC has picked up Joss Whedon’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.” to series. The show is looked at as a continuation of Marvel’s “Avengers” universe, and has been a lock for a pickup pretty much since it was announced.
Well, the fun is about to start.
The upfronts are fast approaching, and it’s about the time when the networks will have to make decisions – what to keep, what to toss, and what to pick up.
Good news comes from the offices at ABC. Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva reports that the Alphabet is currently mulling a two-season renewal for its successful procedural “Castle”. Additionally, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Scandal”, “Once Upon A Time”, “Revenge”, “The Middle” and “Modern Family” are considered locks for renewals, as are reality formats “Shark Tank”, “The Bachelor” and “Dancing With The Stars”, with the latter maybe getting less episodes in its next edition.
“Body of Proof” will return on Tuesday, February 5, at 10 PM ET for its re-vamped third season, featuring new cast member Mark Valley.
“Suburgatory” will make a move to 8.30 PM ET on Wednesday night, beginning April 3.
And then, there are several new shows premiering, which are listed in the full schedule below, with the descriptions directly from the press release following after.
