Another round of renewals & axings from the US:
Quantico, starring Priyanka Chopra, has been renewed for a shortened 13-episode third season, with showrunner and creator Josh Safran exiting. A search is underway for a new showrunner. When adding in seven days of DVR, season two averaged 5 million total viewers.
Medical drama Code Black returns for a third season. The series has enjoyed decent ratings, but nevertheless ranked as one of CBS’ lowest-rated scripted series at 6 million viewers per episode.
Both Quantico and Code Black screen on Seven network in Australia.
Meanwhile New Girl has been renewed for a seventh and final season. Starring Zooey Deschanel, the show is FOX’s longest-running live-action comedy. It is rumoured to be returning for a shortened eight-episode but FOX declined to comment.
As expected The Odd Couple is officially over after three seasons.
Both New Girl and The Odd Couple screen in Australia on TEN network.
