Renewals, axings and yet-to-be-determined
Here's a round-up on renewals of some key US titles airing on Aussie networks.
The Australian today has a feature article on renewals of US dramas, and how they impact with Aussie networks.
Here’s a round-up on some of the key titles:
Seven’s US line-up will continue to include Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy and Lost, which return for their sixth seasons.
Brothers and Sisters and Ugly Betty enter their fourth seasons, Private Practice its third and 30 Rock has been renewed, although it has not had as much success here as it in the US. And troubled sci-fi series Heroes will run for another season.
TEN will lose Life, which has been cancelled, but The Office and drama staple Law & Order: Special Victims Unit have been renewed (actors Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni are yet to be confirmed).
Medium‘s future is unclear (following early, misleading reports it was renewed) but TEN should be pleased that CBS looks like commissioning an NCIS spin-off series. TEN introduces the characters later this month in a double NCIS ep.
Samantha Who? and My Name is Earl have been dumped.
Fringe is renewed, but Nine is unlikely to get excited, unless we can hope it screens on the expected entertainment channel.
