###Continuum Gets Fourth and Final Season

There’s some good news and some bad news for fans of the time-travel series Continuum.

The show has officially been renewed for a fourth season, but unfortunately, this will be its last. The new order will also consist of just six episodes, less than half of the previous seasons. Fans are likely thankful that they’re getting anything at all, because it was unclear until now if the show would return.

The fourth and final season of Continuum will premiere in 2015.

The show tells the story of a police officer from the future who travels back in time to the present day in order to stop a group of history-altering terrorists.

Old headlines but just found out about this today while The Love Boat was on TVGN.

[size=20]‘Major Lazer’ Premieres April 16[/size]

Diplo’s dancehall music project Major Lazer is finally arriving in animated form on FXX this Thursday, April 16 as the latenight Major Lazer cartoon premieres on the Animation Domination block at midnight.

This Thursday’s Animation Domination will also feature fresh episodes of Lucas Bros. Moving Co. and Stone Quackers, plus encores of High School USA!, Axe Cop and Golan the Insatiable.

From an earlier press announcement: ‘The reggae dancehall grooves of Major Lazer are just one of the highlights in Major Lazer. The animated series tells the story of a superhero named Major Lazer who, with the help of his two teenaged friends, Penny and BLKMRKT, fights against the villains that populate the futuristic dystopia that is Jamaica. A self-proclaimed “Guardian of the Groove,” Major Lazer vows to fight for the rights of the Jamaican people and to bring down the ruthless curmudgeon, President Whitewall.’ Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje voices the lead character.

[size=20]‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ Back in the Ring at MTV2[/size]

Eight years after it went down for the count for a second time, Celebrity Deathmatch is attempting to get back on its feet at MTV2. The network announced today that it has ordered a pilot, which could potentially lead to a series.

The clay-animated fantasy fight comedy, which pits the famous and infamous against each other in the wrestling ring, is to be “reimagined for a world of social media and hourly Twitter wars” by series creator Eric Fogel (who also created The Head) and Wasteland Entertainment.

The initial series ran for 75 episodes and one special from 1998 to 2002. Celebrity Deathmatch was revived briefly in 2006 before being canceled a second time.

Fogel didn’t participate in the revival because he was working at the time on his short-lived stop-motion celebrity satire Starveillance for E! network.

In recent years, MTV has resurrected both Beavis and Butt-Head and its animation showcase Liquid Television, the latter with limited success.

His only friend in this reality is a macabre nine-year-old girl named Dylan (Aubrey Plaza), who constantly urges him to wreak havoc on her town. Additional voice talent includes Ken Marino, John DiMaggio, Maria Bamford, Rachel Butera and Nick Rutherford.

Golan the Insatiable was created by TV newcomer Joshua Miller and developed by Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser, who previously collaborated on Axe Cop and Drawn Together. Nick Weidenfeld and Hend Baghdady exec producer with Silverstein and Jeser, with Miller as co-exec producer. The series is produced by Weidenfeld’s Friends Night in association with Double Hemm.


[size=20]Fox Renews ‘The Simpsons’ for Seasons 27, 28[/size]

The Simpsons’ record setting run just got a little bit longer and a little more record-setting-er.

Fox has renewed the long running animated series for two more seasons, which will be the 27th and 28th seasons. That will take the series to a whopping 625 episodes.

The longest-running scripted show in television history, The Simpsons exploded into a cultural phenomenon in 1990 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognizable throughout the world.

Currently airing its 26th season, The Simpsons has won 31 Emmy Awards, 31 Annie Awards, a 2015 People’s Choice Award, was the first animated series to win a Peabody Award and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for the theatrical short “The Longest Daycare.”

The Simpsons Movie was a hit feature film, the mega-attraction The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios has received historic expansion updates with the addition of “Springfield” and the show was honored with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2000. It has been named the “Best Show of the 20th Century” by Time magazine, and called the “Greatest American Sitcom” by Entertainment Weekly in 2013.

The Simpsons is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. The Gracie Films Worldwide Brand Division develops and produces the licensed content for the series. Film Roman, a Starz company, is the animation house.

“New animated comedy Bordertown centers around two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S.-Mexico border, taking a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America.”

###TNT & TBS Get New Direction, Order Series ‘Alienist’ & ‘Wrecked’ And Pilots ‘Will’, & ‘The Group’
May 13, 2015 7:15am



Wow, Person of Interest has tanked so badly that it has been demoted to a show that will be a mid-season replacement. Not the way I wanted to see what was TV’s greatest show go out, but at least it is in good company as a “spackle show” alongside Gary Sinese’s spinoff and a show version of Rush Hour

I’m a bit surprised that CSI: Cyber has been kicked to Sundays already. Maybe Ted Dansen, the guy who could have saved CSI, can bail out Arquette, the dutchman and Lil Bow Wow. Since those rumors turned out to be true, perhaps the firing of Brody from NCIS: NO will be too?

I really wish that Thursday Night Football would just go away. If they have to have it, and I still think it’s a bad idea, it should be on a channel where it won’t screw up normal programming, like NFL Network or Fox Sports 1.




Too early to tell whether the half hour treatment will overstay it’s welcome but so far after ep. 1, there’s more I like than hate.

Now bring back Stone Quackers
