Last year, The Bridge had a strong start in the ratings but the numbers fell quite a bit over the course of the first season. Will the ratings improve in season two or will they get worse? Will it be renewed for season three or will this FX show be cancelled instead?
The Bridge revolves around the Mexican and American police detectives and their efforts to protect those along the Texas–Chihuahua border. The cast of this crime drama includes Demián Bichir, Diane Kruger, Matthew Lillard, Emily Rios, Ted Levine, and Thomas M. Wright.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

We now have a first look at Punk's Dead: Slc Punk 2, James Merendino's follow-up to his 1998 cult classic about two young anarchist punks navigating life in Salt Lake City in the mid-80s. Of the follow-up, Merendino told the Wrap: “In this teaser, you will get a glimpse at familiar faces and I briefly introduce Bob's son, Ross. I am not revealing all of the characters or even much of the story. There's more, much more. Enjoy.” So, what else do we know so far? Well, the original gang is all back (minus Matthew Lillard), Heroin Bob has risen from the grave, and there will be plenty of moshing, because of course. »

A review of "The Bridge" season 2 premiere coming up just as soon as I defend my Rush t-shirt... In my advance review of the season, I noted my relief that "The Bridge" had moved beyond the silly serial killer plot that consumed so much of season 1, while ultimately feeling like the series hadn't improved significantly overall. Through the five episodes I've seen, there are fewer lows, but also not quite as many highs. The new story arc, and the introduction of so many significant characters keeps things moving at a nice clip, but I found myself missing some of the lingering weirdness that season 1 seemed to have more time for. We do get some of that vintage strangeness at the open and close of "Yankee," though. The episode begins with everyone's favorite business card-wielding drug lawyer Monte P. Flagman showing up at a housing development in the desert that's the »

Tonight FX will premiere the first episode of The Bridge Season 2 and we have a sneak peek at the episode in the form of several clips that you can watch below.
The Bridge stars Diane Kruger, Demian Bichir, Matthew Lillard, Emily Rios, Thomas M. Wright and Ted Levine in the story of two police detectives who battle crime along both sides of the Texas and Mexico border. It is based off of the Danish/Swedish series titled Broen/Bron/The Bridge.
Here's a quick Season 2 premiere synopsis that details where The Bridge picks up, "Marco (Bichir) continues to pursue his son's killer behind bars, while his El Paso counterpart Sonya (Kruger) strives to solve a string of mysterious murders along the Us-Mexican border."
I admit to having never seen The Bridge as it is one of many shows sitting on my "to watch someday" list. From what I hear it's »
The Bridge Review – Season 2
Taking a show that seemingly ends, more or less, into a season two pick-up is tricky ground under the best scenarios, but FX‘s The Bridge was the story of the hunt for a serial killer, and now we have to find something else to do with ourselves. The gimmick, apart from the serial killer investigation, was obviously trying to coordinate U.S. and Mexican law enforcement, while weaving through the corruption inherent in the world surrounding the border. This led to some great twists and turns, especially when it came to certain aspects of trying to exist as a non-corrupt person in a corrupt system, as well as trying to use a corrupt system for your not necessarily corrupt goals.
But, now that we aren’t after a serial killer, we’re left picking up the pieces, need a new focus, and awkwardly have to run through another establishment phase. »

For most of its first season, FX's "The Bridge" seemed as caught between two worlds as its two heroes, who worked opposite sides of the El Paso/Juarez border. In one world, the show was stuck adapting the serial killer story from the original Scandinavian "Bron," and not providing a particularly inspired take on an overdone subject. In the other world, "The Bridge" was having a lot of fun looking at the weird culture along that border, and in establishing the bond between Texas cop Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and her Mexican counterpart Marco Ruiz (Demián Bichir). The second show was much more interesting than the first, but the first show kept swallowing the second one whole. Then two promising things happened. First, the season wrapped up the serial killer arc with two episodes to spare, and devoted those concluding chapters to all the things the show had done well, »

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is going to reboot Scooby Doo with another live-action film. The last Scooby-Doo film was released in 2004 and starred Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini, and Isla Fisher as the young, independent detective team.
The report says that the studio is going to start from scratch, and they've hired Randall Green to create a new adventure. I'm not really familiar with that name and couldn't find much information on him, but he's going to be the guy bringing Scooby Doo back to the big screen.
The first couple of Scooby Doo films were fun for what they were, but they could've been better. My kids absolutely loved them, and they still watch those movies all the time. I've been a fan of Scooby-Doo since I was a little kid, and I guess I'll keep watching the movies as long as they keep pumping them out. »

Just a decade after the release of Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Warner Bros. are planning on rebooting the franchise with a new live-action movie. The original two were written by Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn and directed by Raja Gosnell (The Smurfs).
Both of the movies did well at the box office, but the sequel was not well-received by critics, and the iconic Hanna-Barbera has since been kept on the small screen and direct-to-dvd animated features.
According to Deadline, Charles Roven (who produced the first two movies which starred Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, and Linda Cardellini) will also be spearheading this new take, although he’s the only one currently attached to the reboot, so it’s obviously still at a very early stage.
How they will recreate Scooby Doo for a new audience remains to be seen. The last two movies had a »

Scooby Doo has been an iconic brand for 45 years. Since first appearing in 1969, the children’s show has undergone a variety of over-hauls and re-imaginings, with different versions incorporating ‘new’ characters and updated settings. The popularity of the most recent iteration – Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated, which aired on Cartoon Network from 2010-2013 – has evidently set dollar signs flashing in the eyes of Warner Bros. studio executives once again, and a cinematic re-boot is now being planned.
Originally created for Hanna-Barbera Productions by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, the premise of Scooby-Doo sees four teenagers – Daphne Blake, Fred Jones, Velma Dinkley and Norville “Shaggy” Rogers, along with the titular talking Great Dane – solve mysteries that initially appear to involve supernatural creatures and events. Essentially serving to de-bunk conspiracies, the team’s finely honed powers of deduction and trap-setting always lead them to the right conclusion.
In 2002, a live-action feature film was released. »

There's not a lot of details about the direction the studio is looking to take, but this will be a whole new live-action adventure for the Scooby Doo gang. That said, it's highly unlikely for any of the cast from the 2002 movie to return. Don't expect to see Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard, Linda Cardellini and Isla Fisher in their former roles.
The 2002 film was very successful, grossing $268 million worldwide. Besides Green, there are no other attachments at the moment except for producer Charles Roven, who was a part of the original Scooby Doo live-action movie.

It looks like Scooby-Doo is heading back to the big screen, with Deadline revealing that Warner Bros. has tapped screenwriter Randall Green to develop a new live-action adventure Scooby and the Mystery, Inc. gang.
The first live-action Scooby-Doo movie was released in 2002 and starred Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Fred), Sarah Michelle Hellar (Daphne), Linda Cardellini (Velma) and Matthew Lillard (Shaggy). The cast reunited two years later for Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, and were succeeded by Robbie Amell (Fred), Kate Melton (Daphne), Hayley Kiyoko (Velma) and Nick Palatas (Shaggy) for the straight-to-video prequels Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins (2009) and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster (2010).

Scooby Doo is getting a big screen reboot, as Warner Bros plans more movies...
Warner Bros put out a pair of live action/CG hybrid Scooby Doo movies back in 2002 and 2004, the second of which - Monsters Unleashed - was the better. Neither was particularly loved though, and after the second film disappointed at the box office, Scooby went back to the small screen.
At least until now, anyway. Warner Bros is now reportedly ready to reboot the movie adventures of Scooby Doo, and it's hired Randall Green to pen a new screenplay. At this stage, it's unclear whether the film will go down the live action/CG route again, although presumably a new cast will be drafted in. We at least hope they allow Matthew Lillard to keep voicing Shaggy.
Early stages on this one, then. We'll keep you posted...

(Cbr) A decade after the release of "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed," Deadline reports Warner Bros. is plotting the Mystery Inc. gang’s return to the big screen in a live-action reboot. The studio first brought the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon to life in the 2002 comedy "Scooby-Doo," from director Raja Gosnell and screenwriter James Gunn (who of course went on to direct Marvel’s "Guardians of the Galaxy"). It starred Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Linda Cardellini and Matthew Lillard, who reprised their roles in the 2004 sequel. Plans for a third feature were scrapped, with the studio instead opting for a pair of television movies featuring a new cast: the 2009 origin story "Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins" and its 2010 follow-up "Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster." »
