The pain of 'Community''s recent cancellation continually lingers, but who couldn't use something to make it hurt even more? Amid the cult and critical favorite's many genre episodes, we've learned that the NBC comedy had long attempted to bring to light a 'Back to the Future'-themed concept episode at the insistence of departed cast member Donald Glover, though a notable snag prevented the episode from moving forward.
Alas, the 39th season of 'SNL' has come and gone with this past weekend's return of cast alumni Andy Samberg (along with a number of others). Though, even with the tremendous 40th anniversary special looming in our futures, season 39 had one last golden egg to give. Watch Andy Samberg sell a unique cologne in a deleted short from this past weekend's 'SNL.'
Charlize Theron's big return to the 'SNL' stage this past weekend mostly missed the mark, save for a few bizarre-enough-to-be-funny sketches, but this Saturday's season finale already has a few Golden Globes in its pocket. 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andy Samberg will make a long-awaited return to his 'SNL' roots to close out the season, and the first promo already feels like home.
Whether or not 'Community' fans found themselves surprised by NBC's recent season 5 cancellation, few would argue that series creator Dan Harmon's subsequent ambivalence toward another revival attempt proved somewhat unnerving. Now, in his usual fashion, Harmon has gone on the record in his own blog to set straight his feelings on continuing 'Community,' and the bizarre system of TV green lights around it.
Mid yesterday NBC provided us with a first look at its forthcoming 'Constantine' series with a brand-new trailer (as well as its other questionable fall offerings), but let's go a little deeper, shall we? Meet the DC Comics demon-fighting detective in our first official premiere clip from NBC's 'Constantine,' along with a few new photos of the cast!
We weren't quite so devastated by 'Community''s recent cancellation as with others in passing, given that we'd expect a number of outlets to jump at the chance to help fulfill the "Six Seasons and a Movie" mantra, but it seems we can officially cross Netflix off the list. What's more, series creator, showrunner and savior Dan Harmon has opened up with a more public statement on the cancellation of the eternally bubbled comedy.
Earlier today we saw NBC delivering the first full trailer for its upcoming 'Constantine' adaptation, but the network had plenty more to give in advance of the Upfront presentation tomorrow. Not only has NBC set the basic structure of its fall lineup, breaking up its Thursday comedy lineup and keeping 'Parks and Recreation' on the bench for the moment, but the network has also released full trailers for its other offerings, including Katherine Heigl CIA drama 'State of Affairs,' and 'HIMYM' alum Cristin Milioti's 'A to Z.'
'Grimm' is getting close to wrapping up its third season (this is the penultimate episode), which has charted the birth of Adalind's child, and the upcoming marriage of Monroe and Rosalee. Otherwise, the rest of the gang have comfortably fallen into place as Nick's occasional helpers, so perhaps the arrival of Teresa is meant to shake things up.
We're not happy with all of NBC's renewal and cancellation decisions today, but at least one of its newest offerings for the coming season will soften the blow. NBC's "Anchorman Astronaut" period comedy 'Mission Control' with 'Breaking Bad' star Krysten Ritter has officially been given a series order under the watchful eye of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay themselves. Plus, what else has NBC given the green light to?
