ABC has posted their 2013-2014 line-up of new and returning series, which gives us a look at the plan for the network's schedule for the fall. The network has moved The Neighbors over to Friday nights, to join Last Man Standing, and fill the gap left by Malibu Country. Meanwhile, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air on Tuesday nights, ahead of new comedies The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife, which are sandwiched between another new drama, Lucky 7.
ABC just dropped the ax on a number of series, but there's good news for others, including some of their soapier offerings. Scandal, Grey's Anatomy and Nashville have all been renewed for new seasons, as well as Castle. And on the comedy front, Modern Family, The Middle, Suburgatory and Last Man Standing will return as well.
It's usually little more than a case of bad timing, but it seems like there's always at least one TV or movie-related item that needs to be rescheduled due to a tragic event and its subject matter coincidentally hitting a bit too close to home in the wake of the tragedy. Such is the case for this Monday night's Castle episode, which has been rescheduled to air later this month in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Surprisingly, ABC’s Castle hasn’t been on completely solid ground throughout Season 5. New episodes of the series have not been doing quite as well in the ratings on Mondays, although the numbers have still been pretty good. Today, however, the Disney-owned network has shown a leap of faith in its procedural series, which stars Firefly alum Nathan Fillion. The network has ordered an additional episode for Castle’s fifth season run.
Two people were injured on the set of Castle last night, one of whom has since been released from the hospital but is reportedly in a lot of pain. The other, a stuntman, is said to be in serious condition due to a head injury sustained during shooting.
Since Firefly became such a cult phenomenon, Gina Torres and Nathan Fillion should have had plenty of excuses to run into one another at conventions and the like. However, now the two will meet back up on the small screen, with Torres joining Fillion’s starring vehicle, Castle, for a special episode. I hope the two characters will maintain the verbal report they had on the series, but one thing’s for certain, Torres will not be playing Fillion’s second-in-command.
TV Blend writer Jessica Rawden has vowed to watch episodes of shows she’s never seen before and analyze those shows in different areas to let you, the reader, know how quickly you could become a fan. This week Jessica is tackling Castle’s Season 5 Episode 5 murder mystery, “Probable Cause.”
ABC’s been pulling together some really nice sets for three of its veteran shows. Castle: The Complete Fourth Season, Private Practice: The Complete Fifth Season and Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Eighth Season are all hitting DVD in September in complete season sets that will feature crime fighting or disease fighting, as well as some flirting in the workplace.
The news that Community is set to move forward without its creator on board as show runner is still bittersweet. It's really hard to picture the series without Dan Harmon behind it. But the show will go on, and not only will it return to NBC, but it's also reportedly set to be featured in a panel at Comic Con this year.
While word of NBC's current series renewals came in in spurts today, with good news for Community, 30 Rock and Parenthood, we're getting a bunch of good news all at once for a number of ABC series, including freshman dramas Once Upon a Time and Revenge.
The festival, held each year at The Paley Media Center, includes numerous panel interviews of the casts and creative talents behind some of the most popular shows on television. The panels are always fascinating, and often turn up online on as DVD extras. This year, however, fans who can't attend or watch the live stream will be able to watch nine of the panels on demand at their leisure thanks to Hulu.
ABC's Castle will be seeing a visit from an ex-One Tree Hill star who will play a rather familiar sounding role. Hilarie Burton will join the cast as a reality TV star who has reached great heights of fame thanks in large part to her looks and bubbly personality. Sound like any recently divorced reality TV stars whose name starts with “K” you can think of?<
Now you know him as DEA Agent and Brother-in-Law, Hank Schrader on AMC's Breaking Bad. If you don't know Dean Norris from one of the best series on television than you'll probably recognize him as 'that guy' from many projects, whether as a State Trooper in Little Miss Sunshine, a SWAT Team Leader in Terminator 2 or a sweet but overprotective father in Disney's PROM (yep). Now he's going to be 'that guy' again in an upcoming episode of Castle.
Two lovely ladies will be appearing on a special episode of ABC's light-hearted, police procedural Castle, and it just so happens, oddly enough, that they both have a history working with lead Nathan Fillion. On the series Fillion plays the titular crime-novelist who is paired with an actual detective, played by the lovely Stana Katic, in order to alleviate a block and find more material.
It happened! Nathan Fillion will be in a comic book adaptation... well, in a way. Yes, his character's character is getting his own comic book. Marvel and ABC are collaborating on a comic book adaptation NOT of the show Castle, but of Derrick Storm, the character that made Fillion's Castle famous.
