quote:Handmaid's Tale Renewed for Season 2
Offred’s fight for independence will continue for at least another 10 episodes.
Four episodes into its acclaimed first season, The Handmaid’s Tale has been renewed for a second season at Hulu. In making the announcement, the streamer revealed that “The Handmaid’s Tale premiere has been watched by more Hulu viewers than any other series premiere – original or acquired – on the service.”
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood, the drama stars Elisabeth Moss as Offred, a Handmaid in the Commander’s (Joseph Fiennes) household and one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world.
The cast also includes Alexis Bledel, Yvonne Strahovski and Ann Dowd.
“The response we’ve seen to The Handmaid’s Tale in just one week since its premiere has been absolutely incredible,” said Hulu’s Head of Content Craig Erwich in a statement. “It has been an honor to work with this talented team of cast and creators to develop a series that has struck such a chord with audiences across the country. As we continue to expand our strong slate of original programming, The Handmaid’s Tale is exactly the type of gripping and thought-provoking storytelling we want to bring to viewers. We can’t wait to explore the world of Gilead and continue Margaret’s vision with another season on Hulu.”
Season 2 of Handmaid’s Tale will bow in 2018.

quote:Marvel’s Runaways Ordered to Series by Hulu
Marvel is expanding their reach to Hulu, with its Runaways series having now been officially ordered to series. This is the latest effort by Marvel to expand their reach beyond the big screen and develop the television side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in the process. ABC currently has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. running and will add Inhumans to the mix this fall, while Freeform has lined up Cloak & Dagger and New Warriors for release over the next 1-2 years. Netflix continues to be Marvel TV’s go-to destination for streaming content, but now Hulu is staking their own claim in the larger MCU.
The Runaways series had previously only filmed its pilot episode, in order to garner network interest in the series and prove to Hulu (as well as its advertisers) that it is something worth investing in. The plan worked out, with Runaways now on its way to becoming a full-blown series.
Hulu (via Deadline) made the announcement this morning as part of their Upfronts presentation. There is no word yet on when Runaways will begin streaming, but 2018 has been the projected time for a while now. With a full season now ordered by the streaming service, production can begin again on the remaining Runaways season 1 episodes.
Runaways is expected to premiere on Hulu sometime in 2018.

Dorothy’s journey ends here.
NBC has opted not to move forward with a second season of its contemporary Wizard of Oz reboot Emerald City, TVLine has learned.
Emerald City launched last January with a tepid 4.5 million viewers and a 1.0 demo rating. By the time it wrapped its 10-episode run two months later, it had dipped to 2.9 mil/0.7.
Following the finale, exec producers Shaun Cassidy and David Schulner confirmed to EW.com that they had a plan for Season 2. “Should NBC choose to make another limited series based on Baum’s characters, David and I would welcome the opportunity,” the said. “If not, know that this has been one of the most fulfilling experiences either of us has enjoyed, and we remain humbled by all of our brilliant creative partners who made this show so exceptional.”

quote:Hannah Baker’s story may be over, but her Netflix drama lives on.
13 Reasons Why will return for a second season, the streaming service announced Sunday. Additionally, Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Brian Yorkey will take over as showrunner in Season 2, succeeding Diana Son.
Though Season 1 followed Katherine Langford’s character as she made her decision to take her own life, it also introduced several of her classmates, some of them with mysteries of their own. Per the official logline, Season 2 will pick up in the aftermath of Hannah’s death and chronicle “the characters’ complicated journeys toward healing and recovery.”

The bloom is off the Rosewood.
The Morris Chestnut-led Fox drama has been cancelled after two seasons, according to our sister site Deadline.
Having averaged 4.8 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating during its freshman run, where it led into Empire on Wednesdays, Rosewood this season averaged 3 mil and a 0.7 on Fridays, and ended its season with a demo low of 0.5. Among fellow Fox dramas, it only rated higher than Scream Queens (0.6) and Sleepy Hollow (0.5).
quote:Taken Renewed for Expanded Season 2
Never underestimate Bryan Mills: Despite mediocre ratings, NBC’s rookie drama Taken has been renewed for a relatively super-sized Season 2, TVLine has learned. The series — billed as a prequel to the Liam Neeson-fronted film franchise — will produce 16 new episodes, nearly double Season 1’s order of 10.
Taken premiered in February to 7.5 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating, landing just below time slot predecessor Timeless’ own apres-Voice launch. Its freshman run run went on to average 5.3 mil and a 1.1, matching fellow NBC newbies Timeless and Chicago Justice in the demo, while besting The Blacklist, Blindspot, Shades of Blue and Blacklist: Redemption.
Taken stars Vikings‘ Clive Standen as a younger version of Neeson’s ex-Green Beret. The cast also includes Friday Night Lights‘ Gaius Charles and The L Word‘s Jennifer Beals.
