Being Mary Jane: Ending, No Season Five; Bet Drama to End with Two-Hour Series Finale

Well it seems we finally have the answer to that age-old question: to be, or not to be? While people can argue over whether it has been "cancelled," the Being Mary Jane TV show is ending after four seasons on Bet. Deadline reports the Network has ordered a two-hour movie, which will serve as the Being Mary Jane TV series finale, when it airs in 2018. Airing on the Bet cable channel, Being Mary Jane revolves around the life of news anchor, Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union). Margaret Avery, Aaron D. Spears, Richard Brooks, Bj Britt Jr., Raven Goodwin, Richard Roundtree, Valarie Pettiford, Chike Okonkwo, and Michael Ealy also star. The cancellation or ending does not come as a huge shock. Originally, Bet wanted to shoot seasons four and five back-to-back. Gabrielle Union fought that though, on the grounds of break stipulations in her contract.

How Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. fixed the 22-episode problem

Rob Leane May 22, 2017

With spoilers for season 4, we look at how Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. turned its lengthy run into a good thing instead of a drag...

Warning: this article contains spoilers for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s season 4 finale, World’s End. It will be re-promoted at a later date for those viewing at UK pace.

22 episodes is a lot to fill, and the first season of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. arguably fell prey to this network-mandated issue. Forgettable filler instalments where the gang investigated a mysterious thing were commonplace, which felt like an excuse to kill time before the main villain of the season – the utterly unmemorable Clairvoyant - showed up.

But the show has been on an uptick since then. Appearances from Jaime Alexander’s Lady Sif livened things up,

TV Q: Why Are Surprising Returns Spoiled in the Opening Credits? (Answer: They Don't Have to Be)

TV Q: Why Are Surprising Returns Spoiled in the Opening Credits? (Answer: They Don't Have to Be)
Too often, TV’s biggest surprises get revealed… by the show itself, and just as the shocking episode gets underway.

In fact, several times in just the past few weeks, exciting encores that had been kept quite hush-hush were spoiled in the first minutes of the episode, well before the returning characters actually showed up. (Note: No spoilers from the past 10 days appear in this story.)

Even Marvel, the king of top-secrecy, recently tipped off Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. viewers to Trip’s imminent “resurrection,” by flashing actor B.J. Britt’s name during the April 18th

13 Reasons Why Pitch Needs to Be Renewed!

Unfortunately, the fate of Fox's freshman series, Pitch, is still up in the air.

It is arguably one of the best new series of the year, but it has not picked up the fan base and ratings that it deserves. It's a real shame.

Is television ready for a female-driven sports drama? I'd like to think so. Especially when that female is the talented Kylie Bunbury, and her co-star is Mark-Paul Gosselaar. They are just two of the reasons why this series deserves to be picked up.

It would be a travesty if we weren't graced with their talent in such a groundbreaking and inspiring series.

If you're a fan of heartwarming sports family dramas like Friday Night Lights, I urge you to check out Pitch.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Poll: If Evil Fitz's Machine Could 'Bring Back' One Fallen Hero....

The Chekhov’s Gun principle tells us that every dramatic element in a story must be necessary. And ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gave us much food for thought this week, with the revelation that Dr. Fitz’s Project Looking Glass is a nearly complete doohickie that will allow Aida, an AI stuck in android form, to inhabit a fabricated flesh-and-blood vessel. To be human… ish.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 18 recap: Tripp lives!

One of the very best surprises of last night’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., titled No Regrets, was definitely seeing B.J. Britt again. Even though we had an unexpected tragic ending to the episode, seeing Antoine “Tripp” Triplett alive and well was nothing short of incredible. He used to be one of my favorites back in Season 2 and I was just as devastated as Skye was when he died. In another solid episode, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivered a compelling story and I absolutely love how they are developing the Framework narrative. It gives the actors a chance to stretch out...read more

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 18 Review: No Regrets

It was another explosive episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., both literally and emotionally.

Blindsiding audiences with a startling reveal about one character and the shocking death of another (not to mention the resurrection of an old favorite!), the show continues to go in wholly unexpected directions – so unexpected that, for some of the team, I'm not sure there's a way back.

On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 18, Daisy and Simmons wrestled with the revelation that the Fitz they knew and loved in the real world was capable of becoming a cold-blooded killer in the Framework.

Aida's intention for the Framework was a world without regrets, with everyone getting everything they had ever wanted. But, why would this turn good-natured Fitz into the kind of man who could pull a trigger on a woman point-blank?
