It's been a good news-bad news kind of day for NBC viewers, as the same afternoon that saw 'Hannibal' renewed for a third season also gave birth to 'Community''s season 5 cancellation. Now, the peacock has thrown a few more logs on the fire, among them freshman comedy 'Growing Up Fisher,' sci-fi flop 'Believe,' and surprisingly, the two-season 'Revolution.'
Well, this feels familiar. 'Community' astonishingly gravitated closer and closer to its "Six Seasons and a Movie" mantra, particularity when season 5 saw acclaimed showrunner Dan Harmon return to the fold, but NBC has at long last called it quits. 'Community' has officially been canceled, according to the network, but will the Greendale Gang go on?
We've stepped away from the table a bit in our 'Hannibal' season 2 coverage (those Friday nights are killer), but the Fannibals have much reason to rejoice. The good Dr. Lecter and Will Graham will officially return for another course in 2015, as NBC has officially given Bryan Fuller's 'Hannibal' the season 3 renewal we've been waiting for.
It's been a good day for TV comic adaptations. Following The CW's official orders of 'The Flash' and 'iZombie,' Warner Bros. is adding another to the plate. NBC's 'Constantine' has officially been given the series green light, adapting the supernatural detective to live action for a second incarnation.
This past weekend's 'SNL' with first-time host Andrew Garfield brought some exceptionally weird, if memorable skits, so will 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' star Charlize Theron fare any better in her first outing in over a decade? Find out in the first promos, as Charlize shows Taran some of her wild west stunts, and faces Aidy Bryant's revenge, like ya do.
Logical as it might seem for NBC to bite the bullet on one more shortened season of 'Community' to reach its "six seasons and a movie" mantra, fans of Dan Harmon's eternally-bubbling series may be in for a rude awakening. Writer-producer Chris McKenna has cryptically tweeted that 'Community' is "dead," preparing fans for the notion that NBC may not include the series among its ongoing renewals.
UPDATE: NBC has officially announced that 'Community' has indeed been canceled.
We're still not sure what to make of NBC's buzzworthy remake miniseries of horror classic 'Rosemary's Baby' with 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Zoe Saldana, but it won't be long before the network births its latest vision of horror. Take a first look at the May 11 premiere with three brand-new clips from NBC's take on the 1960's Roman Polanski classic 'Rosemary's Baby'!
AMC's 'The Walking Dead' always makes for a good laugh outside of its zombie horror, as the internet allows fandom the opportunity to parody its more ridiculous aspects. Now however, the series appears to have taken matters into its own hands, tasking stars Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln to promote the show in Japan with a series of baffling commercials. Plus, find out what absurd change NBC wanted to make to 'The Walking Dead' before landing on AMC!
Does Nick have a protege? Will this mystery character, Teresa Rubel (hence "Trubel" hence trouble) prove to have a lasting impact on the show or will she be excised from the story fairly quickly? We're heading into the home stretch of 'Grimm''s third season, with this the antepenultimate episode, so perhaps this is all set up for season 4.
After taking a few weeks off, 'SNL' will return this coming Saturday (when else?) to kick off the first of the 39th season's final three installments, webbing up 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Andrew Garfield for his first hosting gig, along with Coldplay's fifth appearance on the series. The first promos have arrived with Bobby Moynihan, but how does Garfield stack up against his 'Spider-Man' co-star/girlfriend/former 'SNL' host/lip-sync champion Emma Stone?
