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.
quote:Emerald City Cancelled at NBC
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.”

quote:Rosewood Cancelled at Fox
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.
quote:Chicago Fire, P.D. and Med Renewed
The #OneChicago franchise — or at least part of it — is in no danger of going anywhere.
NBC has renewed Chicago Fire and the spinoffs Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med, TVLine has learned.
Fire — which celebrated its 100th episode last December — will be heading into its sixth season.
The offshoots P.D. and Med, meanwhile, have been picked up for Season 5 and Season 3, respectively.
No decision has been made yet about the future of Chicago Justice.
quote:Last Man Standing Cancelled at ABC
Last Man Standing is no longer on its feet: ABC has axed the Tim Allen sitcom after six seasons, TVLine has learned.
Allen starred as Mike Baxter, a conservative sporting-goods exec whose traditional values often clashed with those around him, including his liberal son-in-law Ryan (Jordan Masterson). Nancy Travis co-starred as Mike’s wife Vanessa; Amanda Fuller, Molly Ephraim and Kaitlyn Dever played Mike and Vanessa’s three daughters.
Last Man Standing was a Friday-night staple for ABC, racking up a total of 130 episodes. This season, it averaged 6.4 million total viewers and a 1.1 demo rating, down just a tick from Season 5 (as well as the season before that), but only out-rating fellow ABC comedies The Real O’Neals, Dr. Ken and newbie Imaginary Mary. It wrapped up its sixth and final season in March, with Jay Leno guest-starring in the finale.
quote:The Blacklist Renewed for Season 5
Raymond Reddington may want to invest in a second fedora: The Blacklist has been renewed for a fifth season at NBC.
The 22-episode renewal comes as Season 4 gears up for a showdown between Reddington and his confidant-turned-nemesis, Mr. Kaplan. According to series creator Jon Bokenkamp, Mr. Kaplan “will undermine [Red’s] criminal empire in ways he never expected” and “intends to take him apart piece by piece” in the season’s final installments.
The Blacklist thus far this season has averaged 5.4 million weekly viewers and a 1.0 demo rating, down 20 and 30 percent from Season 3. Among NBC dramas, it only rates higher than Grimm‘s farewell season, the already renewed Shades of Blue, its in-limbo offshoot Blacklist: Redemption and the one-and-done Emerald City.
The Blacklist‘s two-hour finale airs Thursday, May 18, at 9/8c. Its spinoff series, The Blacklist: Redemption, has yet to be renewed.

quote:American Gods Renewed for Season 2
Starz has renewed American Gods for a second season, the cable network announced Thursday.
Season 2 of the series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s fantasy novel will consist of at least eight episodes, and possibly more, and likely will premiere in mid-2018.
Executive producers Bryan Fuller, Michael Green and Neil Gaiman “have evolved the art form of television narratively, structurally and graphically with American Gods, and we’re thrilled to be working again with these artists as they continue to build the worlds and wars of the gods,” Starz programming president Carmi Zlotnik said via statement.
In a recent panel discussion hosted by yours truly, Fuller, Green and Gaiman confirmed that Season 1 would end at the point in the book just before Shadow Moon, Mr. Wednesday & Co. arrive at House on the Rock.

quote:Goldbergs Renewed for Seasons 5 and 6
The Goldbergs will soon be flirting with the ’90s.
ABC has handed the circa-’80s comedy a two-season renewal, ensuring that the Wednesday staple will remain on the air through Season 6.
The pickup comes less than 24 hours after ABC similarly renewed fellow Wednesday stalwart Modern Family for two seasons.
Also in contention for the 2017-18 season is a ’90s-set Goldbergs spinoff centering on high school gym teacher Rick Mellor, a recurring character on the mothership; Bryan Callen, who plays Mellor, is attached to star. The premise: Mellor and another high school teacher team up to act as father figures to the kids at their Philadelphia school.
quote:Great News Renewed for Season 2
This is a really good announcement for fans of a certain new sitcom.
NBC has renewed Great News for Season 2, three weeks into its freshman run of Tuesday twofers.
Season to date, the workplace comedy — starring Briga Heelan, Andrea Martin, John Michael Higgins and Nicole Richie — is averaging 3.6 million weekly viewers and a 0.9 demo rating — right on par with time slot predecessor Trial & Error (which has not yet been visited by the renewal gods).
Airing two episodes every Tuesday during the 9 o’clock hour, Great News is on track to wrap its first season on May 23.
quote:black-ish Renewed for Season 4
The arrival of Dre and Bow’s new baby isn’t the only happy event in black-ish‘s world: The ABC comedy has been renewed for a fourth season, TVLine has learned.
In the upcoming season, Stacy Traub (Glee, The Real O’Neals) will join the series, replacing executive producer Jonathan Groff.
The Season 3 finale, which aired Wednesday, drew an audience of 4.8 million total viewers and earned a 1.3 in the demo, improving slightly on the previous week.
quote:Imaginary Mary Cancelled at ABC
It’s like she was never there.
ABC has cancelled Jenna Elfman’s Imaginary Mary after one tepidly-rated season, TVLine has confirmed.
Seven weeks into its nine-episode rookie season, the live-action/CGI-animated sitcom has averaged 3.3 million viewers and a 0.9 demo rating.
quote:Powerless Cancelled at NBC
NBC has lost its lust for Powerless.
The superhero-adjacent comedy — which was from the network’s Thursday night schedule last month — has formally been cancelled.
Powerless, starring Vanessa Hudgens as the research director at a security company that protects average citizens from the superhero battles raging all around them, has struggled in the ratings since its February 2 debut. Last week’s airing pulled a mere 2.1 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating — a 30 percent drop in both categories from its Superstore lead-in.
Two episodes of the show’s original 13-episode order still have yet to air — including a guest spot from TV’s original Batman, Adam West. It’s unclear when (or if) those episodes will air. Along with Hudgens, the cast also included sitcom veterans Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory), Danny Pudi (Community), Ron Funches (Undateable) and Christina Kirk (A to Z).
quote:The Real O'Neals Cancelled at ABC
It’s been real, O’Neals.
ABC has cancelled family sitcom The Real O’Neals after two seasons, TVLine has learned. Noah Galvin starred as gay teen Kenny, whose decision to come out sent shockwaves through his tight-knit Catholic family; Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope) and Jay R. Ferguson (Mad Men) co-starred as Kenny’s parents Eileen and Pat.
O’Neals had an encouraging start to Season 2, landing an order for three additional episodes in November. But by the time it wrapped up its second season in March, it ranked as ABC’s least-watched comedy, averaging just 3.1 million viewers a week. The cancellation ends its series run at a total of 29 episodes.
The writing was on the wall in late March when cast member Matt Shively, who played Kenny’s older brother Jimmy, signed on to play the lead role in NBC’s since-scrapped comedy pilot Spaced Out.
quote:American Housewife Renewed for Season 2 at ABC
ABC’s American Housewife has reason to smile: The network has renewed the comedy series for Season 2.
The show stars Katy Mixon as Katie Otto, a wife and mother of three struggling to raise her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, which is filled with so-called “perfect” mommies.
The ensemble also includes Diedrich Bader as Katie’s husband and Meg Donnelly, Daniel DiMaggio and Julia Butters as her three children. Carly Hughes and Ali Wong co-star as Katie’s friends, who help her keep things in perspective.
quote:Designated Survivor Renewed at ABC
Designated Survivor will live to see another term.
ABC has renewed the Kiefer Sutherland-led political thriller for a second season, TVLine has confirmed. The series’ pickup was set in motion last week with the hiring of Keith Eisner (The Good Wife) as Showrunner No. 4 (following the exits of Amy B. Harris, Jon Harmon Feldman and Jeff Melvoin).
The heavily-promoted Designated Survivor launched in September to a robust 10 million viewers and a 2.2 demo rating. Its numbers have since cooled considerably, with this week’s episode pulling in just shy of 5 million viewers and a 1.0 in the demo.
quote:Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Renewed for Season 5 at ABC
Marvel-ous news for patient Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans: ABC has renewed the ratings-challenged but creatively re-energized series for Season 5, ending many months of speculation about its future.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season has averaged 2.4 million weekly total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, down 30 and 40 percent from Season 3. Among ABC dramas, it equals Quantico, The Catch and died-on-the-vine Conviction in the demo, and outperforms short-lived freshman Time After Time and Season 3 of American Crime.
That said, it enjoys a robust 129 percent boost via DVR playback, ranking fourth among all broadcast shows in that measure (behind iZombie, The Originals and ABC’s Designated Survivor).
In TVLine’s series of Keep or Cut? polls, S.H.I.E.L.D. had the third-strongest showing (90 percent “Keep”) of all bubble dramas polled, trailing NBC’s Timeless and Fox’s ill-fated Pitch.
quote:Once Upon a Time Renewed at ABC for Dramatic Season 7 'Reset'
There will be no Swan song for Once Upon a Time just yet.
Ending months of speculation about the fantasy drama’s future, ABC has ordered a Season 7, it was announced Thursday by exec producer Adam Horowtiz on Twitter.
Set in a small Maine town populated by fairy tale characters (plus a bail bonds woman-turned-Savior), Once premiered in 2011 to 12.8 million total viewers and a 4.0 demo rating, marking that TV season’s highest-rated drama launch.
The past few seasons have seen a marked decline, however, hitting a demo low of 0.5 as recently as April 23. As such, the plan is to “reset” the narrative for Season 7, focusing on a young adult male (played by The Walking Dead‘s Andrew J. West) and a 10-year-old girl (Jane the Virgin‘s Alison Fernandez), with a TBA portion of the original cast continuing on in starring or recurring capacities. As we reported Monday, Jennifer Morrison will not be among the veterans sticking around.
What that tweaked series looks like will be hinted at in the two-hour season finale, airing Sunday, May 14 and promising “The Final Battle” between good and evil.
quote:Secrets and Lies Cancelled at ABC
Secrets & Lies and… now death.
ABC has cancelled the anthology crime drama after two seasons.
Based on an Australian format, the show debuted in March 2015 with stars Ryan Phillippe and Juliette Lewis, who would return for Season 2.
The sophomore run, which featured new cast members Terry O’Quinn and Michael Ealy, was delayed until this past fall, airing a year and a half after the Season 1 finale.
quote:Dr. Ken Cancelled at ABC
The doctor is out. And he’s not coming back.
ABC has pulled the plug on the Ken Jeong-fronted sitcom Dr. Ken after two seasons, TVLine has confirmed.
quote:American Crime Cancelled at ABC
American Crime is no longer paying at ABC: The network has cancelled John Ridley’s Emmy-winning anthology drama after three seasons.
The series was never a ratings powerhouse for ABC, but its Season 3 ratings were particularly woeful; it wrapped its run on April 30 with an anemic 2 million viewers and a 0.4 demo rating. But Crime was arguably ABC’s most acclaimed drama of the past few years, snagging consecutive Emmy nominations for Best Limited Series and back-to-back wins for star Regina King.
Last month at Deadline‘s The Contenders Emmy soiree in Los Angeles, franchise vet Felicity Huffman seemed prepared for the worst, saying, “If there isn’t a Season 4, I’m so honored that this is our last season. I think ABC has changed the face of network TV and what network TV can do. … They are beyond what cable can do. Sometimes those things have a short shelf life, but the ripple effect is great.”
At the same event, exec producer Michael McDonald revealed that a fourth season would’ve centered on “women in the workplace,” before citing the recent sexual harassment scandals enveloping Uber and Fox News (Bill O’Reilly specifically) as examples.
