Update: 7/9 – 6:45 pm

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said that Naya Rivera is “presumed dead” as she’s been missing for over 24 hours. The search has shifted from a “rescue mission” to a “recovery mission.” 

7/9 – 8:54 am

The search for Naya Rivera continues today after authorities and news publications revealed she went missing on a lake in Southern California.

The former Glee actress was reported missing from Lake Piru in Ventura County. 

Rescue efforts were said to be resumed at “first light.”

CBS said she is “presumed drowned.”

CNN notes she rented a pontoon boat with her 4-year-old son, Josey Dorsey, earlier that day. About three hours after they left the dock, another boater found the boat drifting with a child sleeping aboard. 

The child was unharmed and is being reunited with his family.

He told investigators that he went swimming with his mother, but she wasn’t able to get back to the boat. It is not clear how the child got back into the boat. 

Rivera played Santana Lopez on the FOX musical drama for the entire six season run starting in 2009. 

The day before the accident, Rivera posted a sweet photo with her son alongside the caption, “just the two of us.”

La Brea

Was ‘La Brea’ Renewed For Season 3?

La Brea Season 2 Midseason Premiere Recap Episode 9 and 10 Stampede Murder in the Clearing

La Brea fans, you have something to celebrate.

NBC has given an early season 3 renewal to the prehistoric sci-fi series. The network gave the green light right just before season 2 kicked off on Jan. 31, returning from hiatus with two back-to-back episodes. (Read our review!)

Per TVLine, La Brea will get six episodes in the third season with the possibility of scoring more down the line. And if no additional episodes are green-lit, six feels like a solid number that would be enough to provide a solid conclusion for dedicated fans.

The series averaged about 5.4 total weekly viewers, including DVR audiences, in its first season run, however, its midseason return fared rather poorly with 2.1 million and 2 million for both episodes, respectively. All of that could change once playback numbers are factored in proving that the drama was worth saving after all.

The series, which premiered in September 2021—and fills the sci-fi gap left behind by shows like Timeless and Debrisfollows a group of people who fall through a mysterious sinkhole in Los Angeles and find themselves transported to 10,000 B.C.

Big Sky

Will There Be a Season 4 of ‘Big Sky’?

Big Sky review Family Matters Season 2 Episode 17

Big Sky ended on a high note on Wed, Jan. 18, wrapping up a whirlwind season filled with murder, mystery, and deception.

And naturally, fans are already craving more, especially as each season of the series delves into a new storyline centered in Helena, Montana, and involving Dewell & Hoyt’s Cassie Dewell and Jenny Hoyt. 

As of now, ABC has not renewed Big Sky for a fourth season, and it may be months before we get any insight into the matter. 

In terms of ratings, the series kept steady with 2.4 million viewers and a 0.2 demo, which means ABC could go either way with their decision. 

The fact that they brought in the big guns like Reba McEntire and Jensen Ackles for this season likely means the network believes in the series—and it’s hard to argue with the dedicated fanbase that has stuck around through every twisted and over-the-top plot.

The third season wrapped up many lingering storylines, giving fans closure to the mystery plaguing the season, however, there’s always more to explore when it comes to the dynamics between the core characters. And something tells me, there’s no shortage of criminal activity in Helena.

While Cassie and Cormac finally made things official, fans were likely hoping to see a bit more romance for Jenny and Ackles’ Beau. The show has been toying with their chemistry, sparking a “will they or won’t they” debate, but when it finally came down to solidifying their relationship, they left it open-ended. While it may have been frustrating to fans, it’s likely the show’s hope that it’s enough to convince ABC to green light another season to allow them to explore these relationships further.

When TV Insider asked Ackles if he’d return for a fourth season, he explained, “I don’t know. They haven’t even picked up the show yet for Season 4, so I don’t know if anybody’s coming back for Season 4 yet. That’s above my pay grade.”

However, he added, “But if they do decide to pick up a Season 4 — which I would hope they would, I think the show’s really great, and I think it’s got a lot of story left to tell — I don’t know. They had me for one season. They were probably like, well, let’s just bring him in for one, and we’ll see how it goes, and then we’ll go from there. So they’re waiting to hear what happened with the show, and then they’ll probably talk to [showrunner] Elwood [Reid] and try to figure out what to do with the characters, those that are returning and those that they want to return.”

Seems promising! 

Once ABC gives the word—we’ll update this post accordingly. In the meantime, don’t be shy, read our review of the Big Sky Season 3 finale right here.

Why Is Taylor Kinney Leaving ‘Chicago Fire’?

Published

on

Shocking news Firehouse 51—Taylor Kinney is exiting Chicago Fire.

Deadline reported the news on Friday, Jan. 20, revealing that the actor, who anchors the show as Kelly Severide, will be taking a break from the series.

Kinney has been a staple on the Dick Wolf drama since its inception in 2012 and is a huge reason why the series has retained such a dedicated viewership. 

While an official reason was not provided, and a rep for the show did not offer a comment, sources close to production told the outlet that Kinney is taking a “leave of absence” to deal with a personal matter. No word on what the situation is. 

The cast and crew were reportedly informed of the leave right before the news broke, with the writer’s room likely having to rewrite scripts to accommodate the change.

It’s unclear whether this will be a permanent leave, nor is there any info about how he will be written out for now. 

Kinney has not addressed the news himself as of writing. 

This is the latest shocking exit in the #OneChicago world as Jesse Lee Soffer, who plays Jay Halstead on Chicago PD, exited earlier this season, while Brian Tee hung up his coat earlier this season on Chicago Med after portraying Ethan Choi since 2015.
