Though FX had initially seemed confident in FX dramedy 'Wilfred''s third season, the significantly lower ratings have effectively put the series down for good. The cable network has announced that the surreal Elijah Wood-Jason Gann comedy will move to FXX for shortened final season in 2014, wrapping up its run altogether after four years.

Renowned pianist Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) comes out of retirement for one night only to play a classical concert in honor of his late mentor. What is already a pressure-filled evening for the stage fright-stricken musician quickly devolves into a nightmare when a mysterious man threatens to murder Selznick's wife if he makes a single mistake. Drawing inspiration from Hitchcock, De Palma and Italian horror, 'Grand Piano' is a surprisingly fun and snappy little thriller.

'Maniac' Review

'A Clockwork Orange,' 'Last Tango in Paris,' 'Requiem For A Dream,' 'Enter the Void.' These are just a few fantastic movies that use shocking or disturbing imagery and totally earn it. Edit out the brutality or the frank nudity and you don't have the same movie.
Franck Khalfoun's 'Maniac,' like a pipsqueak runt in the back of the class shouting, "me, too! me too!" would no doubt claim its use of sickening gore and first-person perspective isn't an exercise in perversity, but a bold and daring test to see how far one can push an audience, and a springboard for conversation about violence towards women.
Don't believe it for a second.

While there's no telling how different 'Wilfred' season 3 could feel now that showrunner David Zuckerman has left the series, we're eagerly awaiting the latest demented misadventures of Ryan and his imaginary pal. FX has officially set a June 20 premiere date with back to back episodes, and a number of new guest stars, so what other bones will FX throw 'Wilfred' fans this year?

'Maniac' First Six Minutes: See the World Through Elijah Wood's Eyes

EDIT

While 'Maniac' doesn't mark the first time Elijah Wood has played a psychopath (remember his creepy turn in 'Sin City'?), it's certainly showing us a side of Frodo Baggins we've never seen before. Not that you'll actually see much of him in it. The film, a remake of a nasty 80s cult classic, takes place from the Wood character's point of view, so we'll only get to actually view his face in reflections.
If you want a peek inside the mind of this remake, the first six minutes of 'Maniac' have been released online and can be watched after the break!

Hooray, doggie bones and bongs for everyone!  Up until now we'd been somewhat nervous about the fate of FX's critically-adored surrealist drama 'Wilfred,' after the network aired its second season finale without news of a guarantee for the third.  Today we've learned for certain that the Elijah Wood/Jason Gann man's best friend comedy has indeed fetched another year, but what shake-up is in store?  Will 'Wilfred' have a different bite for season 3?
