The Fall 2013-2014 lineups have been released and things are looking pretty interesting for primetime. ABC has stated it is adding 14 new shows to its programming this fall. This might seem like a lot until you realize that FOX is adding 11 new shows and NBC is adding a total of 17 shows!! With primetime in high competition with cable for eyeballs, its no wonder that these channels are stepping up their game.
ABC is brining on-board Mavels Agent’s of SHIELD from creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon to Tuesday nights, hoping to broaden the spectrum of viewers for the channel. The hit ABC drama Once Upon a Time is is getting a spinoff, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.
With the success of shows like Revenge, ABC is adding a new program conveniently titled Betrayal, which I will assume has to do with a married couple that’s got some betrayal on their mind. Killer Women, Mind Games, Lucky 7 and Resurrection.
Shows returning for the fall season include: Once Upon a Time, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, Castle, and Revenge while it has cancelled Body of Proof, Red Widow and Happy Endings.
New drama’s for NBC include Blacklist, Ironside and Dracula. Mid-season NBC plans to air Believe, a new drama by produce J.J Abrams. Grimm, Law & Order: SVU, Revolution, and Chicago Fire are among the drama’s returning for the fall.
CBS is taking a different path from all the other networks and investing in comedies instead of dramas. This might be a smart decision with all of the folks at home looking for some light television after a long day at work, but it could also be a giant flop for the consumers that want to get invested in an actual serialized storyline. Oh well, someone’s got to keep the laughs coming.
The fall season will premiere The Crazy Ones, a comedy starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Geller (which is odd, cause I’ve never seen her in a comedy.) Amongst the other comedies are The Millers, Mom and We Are Men.
CBS is also investing in two new drama’s for the fall season, Hostages and Intelligence.
Returning series include, How I Met Your Mother, Elementary, The Big Bang Theory, CSI, Criminal Minds, Hawaii Five-O, etc. Honestly, from all of the networks it seems that CBS has the best record for highly watched shows on primetime TV.
As a network that saw a 20% drop in ratings this season, Fox really has to step up its game. Unfortunately, looking at the fall lineup and seeing all the cop and legal shows, I doubt its going to go very well for them. Thankfully, I don’t think American Idol has made the cut. I guess the show is finally showing the network that it isn’t all that it used to be.
Fox plans to add on three new comedies and two new dramas to the fall lineup. Almost Human, a cop drama, will be premiering in the midseason replacing Bones. Sleepy Hollow, a new mystery thriller looks highly promising for the Monday night slot. A new comedy Dads is also on the schedule along with drama, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a detective cop show. Midseason Fox will air Gang Related and Rake, both police and legal dramas.
Shows coming back for the fall include Glee, The Following, New Girl, The Mindy Project, 24, and X-factor.

Netflix Renews Spanish Drama ‘Elite’ for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members
We’ve got some elite news!
Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!
The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals.
Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes.
The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.
It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021.
The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up.
Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.
WATCH: ‘The Handmaids Tale’ Reveals Season 4 Trailer and Premiere Date
“We don’t hide. We fight,” Elizabeth Moss’ June states in the new teaser trailer for the upcoming fourth season of The Handmaids Tale.
Her statement sets the tone for the new season of the dystopian series.
In the first scene, we see June walking an empty street in normal clothing, a fear departure from the handmaid’s red dress and white bonnet uniform.
Flashbacks reveal she escaped Gilead with members of the resistance as a war is brewing.
Hulu’s recently-released trailer also reveals a premiere date, so mark April 28 in your calendars.
Much like previous seasons, the season will return will drop three peisodes at once followed by a weekly rollout.
Check out the trailer below and get ready:
‘Younger’ Moving to Paramount+ for Seventh and Final Season – Watch the Emotional Sneak Peek
Younger has a new home.
After six seasons at TV Land, the hit TV show about Liza Miller, a middle-aged, divorced mom who lies about being twenty-something to restart her career in publishing, is moving to Paramount+.
ViacomCBS made the announcement during the streaming presentation on Wednesday.
Paramount+ is a new streaming service that will replace CBS All Access. on March 4.
The base tier will cost $5 and include ads. For ad-free streaming, the monthly price will set you back $10.
Now, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you’re an avid TV watcher, adding yet another streaming service to your monthly bundle might not be totally feasible.
The good news is that the 12-episode final season will also air on TV Land. The catch? It will run delayed likely after the series wraps, which means you might not avoid spoilers.
Pick your battles, I guess.
The move, while annoying for some, isn’t completely out of the blue. The series was supposed to the Paramount Network for its sixth season but ultimately stayed at TV Land.
With such a dedicated fan-base and so much potential, it doesn’t seem like 12 20-minute episodes are going to provide a satisfactory conclusion. And I don’t think I’m ready for Liza to finally choose between #TeamJosh and #TeamCharles permanently.
The seventh season was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cast has been busy filming in New York as of late.
And that’s why fans were able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season:
As Liza says, “embrace the past, accept the present, and keep moving forward.”
While it sure does seem like Liza picks Charles in the end, Sutton Foster promises that the final season will bring “all the emotional, all the laughs, and all the drama defined Younger and have made it the success it is.”
The series stars Foster, Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Charles Michael Davis and Peter Hermann.
Back in March, it was announced that Duff would be getting a spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters.
