ABC is the latest of the broadcast networks to throw out their 2015-2016 schedules, and while few major upsets are in store, the network still had some surprising news. Will Castle or Grey’s Anatomy go on beyond their next seasons? And which of the freshman series will get an unexpected reboot?
The onslaught of Upfronts are officially upon us for 2015, and ABC got the major network ball rolling with good news for Agent Carter, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Muppets. There’s plenty good and bad to go around however, as while Once Upon a Time, Fresh Off the Boat and the Shondaland series have been renewed, Forever and others won’t live to see additional seasons.
Sofia Vergara knew exactly what she was doing the second she took the 'Tonight Show' stage last night. The 'Modern Family' star was hellbent on one thing: playing one of host Jimmy Fallon's favorite games (and we know how much Fallon loves games) and using it to totally turn the tables on him. You like Lip Flip, huh, Jimmy? Right? You don't like it as much as Sofia does.
Looks like it was another one of those 'Modern Family'-centric years, right? ABC's hit took home the 2014 Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, as it did in 2013, 2012, 2011 ... oh, and in 2010, too!
We've already heard the major networks revealing when their shows would finally premiere for the fall 2014 season, and now ABC has finally brought up the rear. Find out when Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will return for season 2, as will new episodes of 'Once Upon a Time,' 'Scandal,' and all your ABC favorites with the fall 2014 premiere schedule!
ABC has become the next in line to divulge their fall 2014 schedules in advance of the Upfront presentation this week, and while the list leaves off any major surprises, Marvel fans would do well to learn that new series 'Agent Carter' will indeed serve as a smaller series bridge between the first and second half of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2.
While we're more concerned with ABC's renewal of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and an official series order for 'Agent Carter,' the network had plenty more to offer in advance of its Upfront presentation next week. Not only will such staples as 'Modern Family' and 'Scandal' return, but freshman comedy 'The Goldbergs' has officially earned an additional season, in addition to such pilots as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Karen Gillan's 'Selfie.'
On an all-new episode of 'Modern Family,' Alex finally caves under years of academic pressure and decides to see a therapist, while the parents all head to open house. While there, Gloria faces off with a mean mom (guest star Jane Krakowski) and Phil and Jay cut class for a little manly bonding. Meanwhile, Mitch butts heads with an environmentally-conscious neighbor (Jesse Eisenberg).
'Modern Family' returns from its winter hiatus with an all-new episode, but can they continue their winning streak? Mitch and Cam's wedding plans continue when the pair try to find a venue for their upcoming nuptials, while Jay and Gloria also get in the spirit as they make plans for baby Joe's birthday party. Meanwhile, Phil tricks Luke into taking a ballroom dance class and winds up in jail.
On tonight's new episode of 'Modern Family,' Gloria dumps her visiting mother on an unsuspecting Claire, while Jay takes Manny on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree. Meanwhile, Phil attempts to put his elliptical machine from last Christmas to good use, Haley and Alex work for Santa at the mall, and Cam and Mitch prepare for Pepper's party while trying to fix a last-minute Christmas present mix-up. If that sounds like a lot of plot, it is, and while it doesn't entirely work, there's some pretty sweet stuff in this special Christmas episode.
