Christopher Lloyd is joining the cast of Syfy's 12 Monkeys in its third season. It will be crazy to see Lloyd play a "deadly cult leader."

FX renewed American Crime Story for a third season. (No, the second season had not aired yet. It's due out in 2017, so this third season thing can still be cut off at the knees of for someone reason no one tunes into the second season of the show.)

America's Next Top Model will be premiering in its new network, VH1, on Monday, December 12th. (I know, it's like the in-laws that just won't leave!)

CBS has ordered a new game show, Candy Crush, based on the mobile app game.

Guilt was cancelled by Freeform. There will be no second season of the show.

The Loud House was given a go for a third season on Nickelodeon.

Gwen Stafani will be returning to The Voice in the next season or "the spring edition" of the show. She'll be taking her seat back from Miley Cyrus. Miley will pop back in after the next season.
