Animated DEADPOOL Dead, KILLING EVE Good, And a Bunch of Renewals (ABC, CBS, CW and More)

Bunch of Renewal news (ABC, CBS, CW and More)

Due to 'creative differences,' FX has pulled the plug on the animated version of Deadpool.

"Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series. FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue.”
Which is long code for someone ticked someone else off.

Original HBO film Fahrenheit 451 will debut on Saturday, May 19

With the solid return of Roseanne, ABC renewed it for its '11th' season. I won't be watching but it's going strong as they market the show more towards the demographic that voted Trump into office.


BBC America announced the renewal of
Killing Eve. (This is a great, great show!)

The show is based on novellas by Luke Jennings.


CBS has announced renewals for
SEAL Team and


Cinemax renewed Strike Back for a 6th season.


The CW renewed the following shows for next season:

Black Lightning,
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,
D.C.'s Legends of Tomorrow,
The Flash,
Jane the Virgin,
Supergirl and

Something to keep in mind... Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is headed into it's final season next season.

Jane the Virgin had some crap ratings (even for CW) so not sure why that was renewed.

Going into next season, Supernatural will be tied for 8th in longest running one-hour scripted dramas. Being in 8th, it will sit behind the following shows:

Law & Order,
Law & Order: SVU,
ER and
Grey's Anatomy.


Netflix announced five series being renewed, they are:
Drug Lords,
Nailed It!,
Queer Eye and
The Toys That Made Us.


IFC renewed
Brockmire and
Documentary Now!


Confusing Casting News:

Connie Britton, who presently stars in 9-1-1, has signed up to star and exec produce a new series on Bravo Media, called Dirty John. The series will be based on a real newspaper column & podcast of the same name. The new series got a two-season order.

If this is true, what does this mean for 9-1-1, where she's an integral part of the cast? I can't see that going anywhere since it's a pretty good show but why is she getting set up in another series?


If you're a fan, and a Hulu Watcher...

Huge Laurie (House) has joined the cast of Hulu's Catch-22.

He will be portraying squadron executive Major de Coverley, a man who dances to the beat of his own drum. (Huh... sounds familiar...)



NBC's Shades of Blue will return on June 17th, but it will be its final season.
