Per a tweet from the star of the cable network’s Aaron Sorkin drama “The Newsroom”, the drama has been renewed for another season.
The cable network has announced today in a press release that the upcoming seventh season of the vampire drama will be the last.
The cable network has ordered a seventh season of its long-running vampire drama “True Blood”.
But first, here’s a very “deserted” look at the full trailer for the coming second season of Aaron Sorkin’s “The Newsroom”, which bows Sunday, July 14 on HBO.
Head for the goods, after the jump!
In light of its upfront presentation yesterday, USA has announced that it has picked up its first ever half-hour comedies with “Sirens” and “Playing House”. The cable network also ordered comedy “Love Is Dead” to pilot.
The move comes over the fact that USA will begin to air reruns of “Modern Family” on September 24.
The Veep will stay in office.
HBO has ordered its sophomore comedy “Veep” for another season, three episodes into its second season which launched April 14.
HBO has officially canceled its drama “Enlightened” after two seasons, several sources report.
Meanwhile, CBS has just announced that it has renewed its long-running procedural “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” for a fourteenth season. The news comes after lead actor Ted Danson has renewed his contract for two more years.
I know I’ve been neglecting the blog a bit this week due to unscheduled work, so here are some items that didn’t make it here up to this point.
HBO has officially confirmed that both its acclaimed dramas “Girls” and “Enlightened” will be returning on Sunday, January 13, 2013, at 9 PM and 9.30 PM ET/PT, respectively.
And more casting news have appeared.
- Vanessa Marcil and Tom Arnold have both scored guest parts on CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O”, per TVLine’s Vlada Gelman and TVGuide’s WIlliam Keck. Marcil will appear in a November episode as a therapist Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) suspect of messing with his mind upon her involvement in a murder case. Arnold will guest star in the current season’s ninth episode as the main villain, in a case about a Girl Scout outing that Steve and Danny (Scott Caan) visit.
And here, before the Emmys really will take over this day, are a few items from the very recent past that need mentioning.
- According to TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich, “Treme” co-creator David Simon announced at a screening at the Joy Theater in New Orleans yesterday that the HBO drama was renewed for a fourth and final season, which gives the producers the total season run they had envisioned.
We’re not quite done with the TCA Summer Press Tour yet, as today, HBO has taken the stage.
And the network has announced that the second seasons of both its critically-acclaimed drama “Girls”, as well as “Enlightened”, starring Laura Dern, will be launching in January 2013. No exact date was given at this point.
Another veteran Hollywood actress is making the jump to television – be it only for an episode.
E!Online’s Kristin Dos Santos reports that Melanie Griffith (“Working Girl”) will be appearing in the upcoming season 3 premiere of “Raising Hope”, and not alone, but alongside her real-life mom Tippi Hedren. FOX has since confirmed this news.
Griffith will play Sabrina’s (Shannon Woodward) mother. More details weren’t available, but according to the article, Griffith will be on hand for several episodes of the upcoming third season.
On to more casting news.
She blew us away with a very intense part on last week’s “Longmire” on A&E, and now Abbie Cobb (“90210″, “Suburgatory”) is getting to meet another branch of law enforcement.
According to TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich, Cobb has booked a guest spot in the third episode of the upcoming fourth season of “NCIS: Los Angeles” on CBS, which has the potential of becoming a recurring part.
Yeah, OK, that one will have to wait until Arnie drops that line on “Expendables 2″, but still, after a few days off, this blog is now back in action. And rest assured, it will be very active during the coming days, which will probably offer quite the amount of news, with the TCA Summer Press Tour looming.
But here’s what happened recently, especially casting-wise, and also during Comic-Con in San Diego. It’s quite the massive News Pack this time.
- The executive producers of The CW’s “Nikita” have announced at Comic-Con that Devon Sawa, who plays Owen Elliot on the drama, has been upped to a series regular.
HBO has issued a press release today, announcing the premiere dates for both its successful dramas “Boardwalk Empire” and “Treme”.
The upcoming third season of Prohibition Era series “Boardwalk Empire” will launch on Sunday, September 16, at 9 PM ET/PT.
It seems to be the week of renewals, and everyone wants to get their business in order before the 4th of July.
HBO has announced that it has picked up its vampire drama “True Blood” for a sixth season.
