The Killing is long gone, Borgen is done, and the last foreign drama to really capture the imagination of the British public - Channel 4's French spooker The Returned - won't be back on our screens until at least 2016.
So is our fascination with foreign fare over with - or could another international series be about to break through? Digital Spy takes a look at 8 contenders:
1. Deutschland '83
Where's it from? Germany.
What's it about? Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) is wrenched from the world he knows and sent to the West as an undercover Stasi spy at the height of the Cold War. Hiding in plain sight in the West German army, he must gather the secrets of Nato military strategy.
Could it be a hit in the UK? Talks with Brit broadcasters are currently ongoing, but a big factor here could be the news that Deutschland '83 is »
Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 4, 2015. "American Idol" took a big dip on Wednesday night, but Fox barely felt the pinch as "Empire" did what "Empire" has been doing for two months now, defying all expectations with yet another improbable jump across the board, leading Fox to comfortable primetime wins in all measures. Fox is saying that the 18-49 number for "Empire" this week is the highest for any regularly schedule broadcast drama since "Grey's Anatomy" in October 2009. [Emphasis on "regularly scheduled" because of the out-of-regular-time-period "Lost" finale in May 2010 and, presumably, because of post-Super Bowl dramas and whatnot.] "Empire" continues to take a bite out of "Criminal Minds" in the 9:00 hour, though the 10 p.m. premiere of "CSI: Cyber" on CBS maintained most of its lead-in. And in the first part of its season finale, The CW's "The 100" held its own and improved on its "Arrow" repeat lead-in. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, Fox averaged a 3.9 rating for Wednesday night, dominating the key demographic. ABC was second with a 2.2 key demo rating, »

Another week, another record high for Fox phenom “Empire,” which continued to show no signs of slowing down Wednesday, two weeks from its first-season finale. Also of note in last night’s ratings race was a good performance by ABC’s comedy block and a solid but unspectacular start for the latest CBS crime drama spinoff, “CSI: Cyber.”
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Empire” averaged a 5.7 rating/16 share in adults 18-49 — the best same-night score for a regularly scheduled broadcast drama since “Grey’s Anatomy” in October 2009 — and 14.2 million viewers overall. It was up 6% in the demo and 2% in total viewers from last week
“Empire” has now grown seven consecutive weeks in total viewership since its Jan. 7 premiere: 9.90 million (Jan. 7), 10.32 million (Jan. 14), 11.07 million (Jan. 21), 11.35 million (Jan. 28), 11.47 million (Feb. 4), 11.96 million (Feb. 18), 13.02 million (Feb. 18), 13.90 million and now a preliminary 14.2 million.
And in adults 18-49, it’s been up seven times »
- Rick Kissell
Fox’s Empire this Wednesday drew 14.3 million total viewers and a 5.8 demo rating (per finals), ticking up another 2 and 7 percent and delivering the highest demo number for any regular broadcast drama in over five years (since Grey’s Anatomy circa October 2009, Fox notes).
Versus its January debut, the musical sudser is now up 43 and 50 percent.

Last night, CBS dropped the new promo/spoiler clip (below) for their upcoming "Criminal Minds" episode 17 of season 10, and it gives us looks at some very disturbing, intense stuff as the UnSub is seen getting ready to kill women in their sleep, and more! The episode is titled, "Breath Play." In the new, 17th episode official plot description: With a serial killer on the loose in Wisconsin, the Bau will have to find a connection among the casualties to profile and identify the unsub. Plot description number 2: The Bau will get called to Wisconsin in search of a serial killer, and the team will look for a connection among the victims for clues to the UnSub. Also, Kate will have trouble dealing with her niece, Meg, when she begins acting out. The episode was written by Erik Stiller, and it was directed by Hanelle Culpepper. Episode 17 is scheduled to air on Wednesday night, »
The Bau goes to prison to investigate the murders of guards, and it's not enough that they have a suspect pool of 2,000 inmates. As the Criminal Minds episode "Lockdown," directed by series star Thomas Gibson, shows, the real danger comes from those who should be the ones doing the protecting.
It's one of those episodes that focuses exclusively on the case. There's no B story about one of the team, and with no cell service inside the prison and glitchy Wi-Fi, Garcia misses out on phone-flirting with Morgan, making it a very serious hour. As it should be, especially since two of the team end up in serious danger, their lives in the hands of the inmates. It's a tough day at the office for Kate. »

In the new, 17th episode press release: With a serial killer on the loose in Wisconsin, the Bau are going to have to find a connection among the casualties to profile and identify the unsub.

Bring on the cigars! Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum have been cast in Independence Day 2. The film's director, Roland Emmerich, announced the news via Twitter on Tuesday, Mar. 3. "Excited to Officially announce @LiamHemsworth and #JeffGoldblum as the next two pieces of the #IndependenceDay sequel," he wrote.

On one hand, the Bau lucks out with this Criminal Minds case since they don't even need to come up with a suspect list. On the other hand, it's because the victim are prison guards, which means they have a very large suspect list in "Lockdown," directed by series star Thomas Gibson.
The Bau is called in when two guards at a privatized maximum security prison in Texas are murdered, and the tam suspects that there could be more than one UnSub within the prison at work. »
It seems almost impossible that Community is set to debut its sixth season next month. Over its tenure, the show has dealt with internal bust-ups, sackings, re-hirings (creator Dan Harmon returning for season 5), cast members departing and some particularly low viewing figures compared to other high-profile shows. And, who can forget, being cancelled by NBC last year.
But, despite all of that and its somewhat inevitable cancellation, Community lives on thanks to Yahoo!, and have revealed the first full trailer for the new season. Yahoo! Screen, who purchased the rights to the show, are set to air the new season on March 17th, with it’s UK bow set for 24 hours later.
Despite some of the original cast leaving for different reasons (Chevy Chase was sacked after season 4, Donald Glover left for his own show just after season 5 had started, and Yvette Nicole Brown left before season 6 began to take »

My fellow Greendale Human Beings, the Community Season 6 trailer has arrived, and it is glorious. Despite yet another cast departure, with Yvette Nicole Brown exiting Community as a series regular in order to take care of her ailing father, and a move from NBC to Yahoo Screen, the three-minute long trailer (okay, well, technically, it’s two minutes and fifty-six seconds, but, you know, who’s counting?) feels like the same weird, lovable, and, of course, hilarious Community that we all know and love. Without giving away all the goodness in the trailer (and trust me, there’s a lot to look forward to), the video certainly gives a taste of what Community Season 6 will be like and how new cast members Criminal Minds‘ Paget Brewster and Enlisted‘s Keith David will fit into the group. Even from the short scenes we have with them, it’s clear that Dan Harmon and co. »

And judging by the contents of the three-minute video, that’s not going to be difficult at all.
In the trailer released by Yahoo! Screen — where the comedy’s new episodes will stream — Criminal Minds vet Brewster and Enlisted actor Keith David appear as the community college’s latest hires, who quickly realize this campus is anything but average.

Congratulations are in order for A.J. Cook! The Criminal Minds star surprised fans Sunday afternoon when she announced she was expecting a baby.

"Since @ajcook announced we are expecting a new addition to the clan, I guess it's my responsibility to inform everyone it's a boy!" he captioned with an assortment of baby clothes. The couple is already proud parents to a son. Well known for her role as »
Madam Secretary‘s Elizabeth McCord is always one cool politico, no matter what tricky feat of international diplomacy is demanded of her. But those behind the scenes of CBS’ Sunday-night drama admit that its Season 2 pickup last month provided a welcome respite from the nerve-racking renwal waiting game.
“It was a big relief to get it early,” executive producer Lori McCreary says with a laugh.
“Huge,” chimes in fellow Ep Barbara Hall.
And now that the pressure is off the series’ team, they can focus on how it’s about »
CBS’s primetime lineup is a comfortable den filled with reliable procedurals. These crime shows can be thrilling, to be sure. But viewers watch the twisted perps on “Criminal Minds,” “NCIS, “CSI” and all of their related spinoffs do horrible things, with the knowledge that determined law enforcement specialists probably will bring them to justice by the end of the hour, usually with the help of Nasa-grade technology.
Contrast these whizbang adventures with the caseload of “Battle Creek‘s” overworked cops, who work in a department so poorly funded that in one drug bust, a detective sends his informant to face a dangerous criminal with a baby monitor because the department’s other surveillance equipment doesn’t work. They do get their man, but not before their star detective gets a nasty shiner for his efforts. (Their Tasers don’t work either.)
