In an uncharacteristically aggressive move for Fox, the basic cable network announced today that it would be ordering additional seasons of four programs. Included among the lucky few are critically acclaimed comedies New Girl, The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, along with the Kevin Bacon-starring thriller The Following.
Most decisions about renewals and cancellations come later in the spring, more towards the end of March and April, so Fox’s enthusiasm in handing renewals to the four shows speaks volumes about the confidence that the network brass has in them, both creatively and in terms of ratings. It’s worth noting that none of the renewed shows have drawn huge audiences, but all have benefitted tremendously from factoring in DVR viewings.

Fox is off to an early start in the renewal game. Here's a quick look at the comedies that will be returning for another year: Freshman comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, starring Andy Samberg, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews and Andre Braugher, will return for a second season. The Mindy Project, starring Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina, Ed Weeks, Ike Barinholtz, Zoe Jarman, and Beth Grant, has been renewed for a third season. New Girl, starring Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson, Lamorne Morris, and Hannah Simone, will return for a fourth season. As part of its two-year pickup, Glee will enjoy its final season run next year, with Lea Michele and Jane Lynch starring. Hit the jump for some drama renewal news. The Following will live to fight another day as the Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy-starring series has been renewed for a third season. »

Bones returns to Monday nights next week with the final stretch of its ninth season, which promises to present Booth and Brennan with a situation like none they’ve ever experienced, according to executive producer Stephen Nathan.
“Sort of the past few years, the cliffhanger was Pelant . It was a serial killer. This time, we wanted our ongoing threat — at least from the end of season 9 to the beginning of season 10 — to be something very vague and conspiratorial rather than one evil person,” he tells EW. “It took us in a very, very different direction and put the characters in »

As is so often the case when she meets a new assistant, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) isn't exactly thrilled to meet Rodolfo.
He does, however, have a lot of expertise. That should be helpful when dealing with bones coming out of a septic tank.
But will Rodolfo be able to handle Brennan's typically dismissive attitude? He is, after all, her equal in many credentials.
Maybe the new squintern can prove his worth to the others -- Brennan does listen to them.
"The Repo Man in the Septic Tank" episode of "Bones" airs Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. Et/Pt on Fox. »
Finally, a reason to celebrate Mondays! Bones is returning to its old stomping grounds this coming Monday, March 10, and the show is bringing back a very special guest for the occasion: Freddie Prinze Jr.! Yes, CIA Agent Danny Beck returns in the Fox hit's all-new episode, "The Source in the Sludge," after a CIA informant is found murdered and Booth (David Boreanaz) must work with his old friend to track down an Afghani terrorist. And we've got your exclusive first look at Prinze back in action (rocking a seriously hot salt-and-pepper look) as Danny... "I can't say that I'm happy to see you," Danny says to Booth when they run into each other »
There are several levels of distillation that have brought us to Sirens, a new comedy on USA produced by Denis Leary (Rescue Me) and Bob Fisher (Wedding Crashers). It is based loosely on a U.K. series of the same name, that ran for a single season in 2011, that itself was based off of the book Blood, Sweat & Tea, which was a compilation of posts from the blog "Random Acts of Reality." In some cases, the continual processing of something can lead to it being polished and refined. In other cases, it causes it to loose its natural content and value. To see exactly where Sirens falls, hit the jump. As I mentioned in my review of NBC's new comedy About A Boy -- itself an adaptation of both a book and a movie -- an adaptation can either go for authenticity, or it should consider the source material from »

The promos are coming thick and fast for promising new FX series, Fargo...
April the 15th is the Us arrival date for FX's Fargo, a small screen take on the 1996 Coen Brothers film of the same name. Though inspired by the nineties crime comedy drama, the ten-episode limited series is to feature new characters and stories.
Billy Bob Thornton plays Lorne Malvo, a manipulative drifter who gets caught up with Martin Freeman's small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard. Colin Hanks is Police Deputy Gus Grimly, with Allison Tolman his colleague, Molly Solverson. Breaking Bad's Bob Odenkirk also stars.
You'll see little of the cast in the dialogue-free teasers below that establish Fargo's comic yet macabre tone...

It’s been about a decade since the last episode of Angel, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series about the vampire with a soul, aired. The final episode of season five, Not Fade Away, first appeared on Us television screens on 19 May 2004. That seems simultaneously like a very long time ago, and not very long ago at all, because time is vast and human brains are small and fallible, but it’s safe to say that in TV years, it’s a pretty long goddamned time.
The men and women behind the characters we used to spend one night a week with have gone on to other things – some bigger and better, others kind of rubbish – and unless you’re a particularly obsessive superfan, you »
Don't bother going to your mind palace to see if you can remember who Butch Gilzean is from DC's comics, or searching Wikipedia. He's a new character created for Fox's Gotham, and Deadline is reporting Drew Powell will play him in the upcoming series. Powell is probably best known for starring in television's Ponderosa, and his guest roles in Malcolm in the Middle, Leverage, True Blood and Bones. He also appeared in Southland with Ben McKenzie, who will »

He’s been on Bones for the last five years, but we’re only now going to get to know the parents of Arastoo Vazira (Pej Vahdat). It makes sense that it’s taken this long; as a squint in the position of a rotating lab assistant, Arastoo isn’t around in every episode, making stories involving him requiring a shorter incubation period. But when he started dating Cam (Tamara Taylor) last season, his importance to Bones shot through the roof. Suddenly his family became super important as he and Cam go through the usual beats a relationship first. And up first is Arastoo’s mother, to be played by Shohreh Aghdashloo.
According to THR, the Oscar-nominated actress will play Deena Vazira, who is eager to meet her son’s longtime girlfriend. In fact, she comes to town with the strict intention of meeting the couple for dinner. And because, »

The ratings for Duck Dynasty are down 40% from a year ago, but it can’t be blamed on Phil Robertson‘s homophobic and racist comments. Ratings were sliding before Robertson’s infamous GQ profile. Now I’m looking back at that interview and wondering if those comments were an attempt to drum up some publicity.

Aghdashloo will appear in an upcoming episode when Cam (Tamara Taylor) and boyfriend Arastoo Vaziri (Pej Vahdat) have dinner with Deena during the woman's visit to town, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Things get awkward quickly, of course, when Deena begins to question the couple. Will the Vaziri parents approve of their son's older girlfriend (especially since she doesn't share the same religion)?
There's nothing like a little Buffy the Vampire Slayer nostalgia to cap off a long week. The titular tiny fighting machine and current star of The Crazy Ones paid a visit to her Angel, aka David Boreanaz, on the Bones set this week—and happily shared a photo of their reunion for their still-adoring fans. Oh yes, and there's Emily Deschanel, too. "@David_Boreanaz @EmilyDeschanel- A tale of two leading ladies #Bones #Bvts," tweeted Gellar, who also firmly declared herself Team Angel (sweet dreams, Wheedonites) during a Reddit Ama session yesterday. Asked to name her favorite Buffy episodes during the Q&A, the 36-year-old actress named "The »
Buffy and Angel, together again! Sarah Michelle Gellar reunited with former onscreen flame David Boreanaz on Thursday, Feb. 27 -- but it wasn't the steamy encounter fans necessarily wanted. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer paramours were joined by Boreanaz's Bones love interest Emily Deschanel in the photo uploaded to Gellar's Twitter. "A tale of two leading ladies," the Crazy Ones star, 36, captioned the amazing snapshot of Boreanaz, 44, sandwiched between Deschanel and Gellar. Gellar's latest Buffy teaser comes two weeks after she reunited and shared an Instagram photo [...] »
Angel and Buffy forever!While Sarah Michelle Gellar's TV heroine dated Riley (what a dud!), had a thang with Spike and a one night stand with that horrible college boy Parker Abrams, we always wanted to see her get back with David Boreanaz's tortured vamp.And now, the former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" stars have reunited ... with another woman in the picture.Smg, David and his "Bones" costar/current onscreen love interest Emily Deschanel posed for a pretty epic photo together on Thursday, which Gellar captioned "A tale of two leading ladies."It's been almost 17 years since the debut of the beloved WB-turned-upn show, and about 11 years since they were last seen together onscreen during the "Btvs" series finale. During an Ama with Reddit yesterday, Gellar was asked who she thought Buffy should have been with: Angel or Spike."Angel," she replied, in all caps. Another fan re-asked the Q, »

Sarah Michelle Gellar's Reddit Ama on Thursday (Feb. 27) reveals a lot about the usually private actress. From "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" to her current show, "The Crazy Ones," Gellar had plenty of tidbits to share.
But the most important bit of information? She is Team Angel.
In case you've been living under a rock that doesn't get TV reception, Angel (David Boreanaz) was Buffy's first and arguably greatest love on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." A vampire with a soul (and a lot of brooding), Angel was a difficult boyfriend at best. At worst, he tried to kill her family and friends and end the world.
Which of David Boreanaz's leading ladies do you prefer? He spent several years with Sarah Michelle Gellar on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" before departing for his own show ("Angel"), but he's now married to Emily Deschanel's character on their current show, "Bones."
Which team are you on? Boreanaz is on both, apparently, judging by the mind-melting photo that just made its way online.
Gellar tweeted a picture of her on some sort of set with both Boreanaz and Deschanel with the caption "A tale of two leading ladies." It doesn't seem like there's any bad blood between Boreanaz's past and present TV loves, so it seems safe to commit yourself to both teams.

FX has released the first teaser trailer for Fargo, the Coen brothers' upcoming small screen adaptation of their classic 1996 film of the same name, which you can check out below....
The 10-episode limited series is executive produced by the Coens, who have also written along with Noah Hawley (Bones), with Adam Bernstein (Breaking Bad) directing the first episode. It will "follow an all-new ' true crime' story and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and 'Minnesota nice' that has made the film an enduring classic."
The teaser promo gives very little away, but it does give us our first look at Billy Bob Thornton's (Bad Santa) drifter Lorne Malvo, who's set to lead Martin Freeman's (The Hobbit) businessman Lester Nygaard on a path of destruction. Also featuring in the cast is newcomer Allison Toleman (Prison Break) as Deputy Molly Solverson.
Fargo is set to air later this year. »

The next time anyone sees "Bones," it will be on a Monday. Starting on March 10 with "The Secret in the Sludge," the show will air Mondays at 8 p.m.
The case of the week in "The Secret in the Sludge" is connected to a terrorist, bringing back Prinze as CIA Agent (and old Booth buddy) Danny Beck. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) isn't exactly thrilled at the CIA's intrusion on the case, especially since -- due to insurance woes -- she is being pressured to stay out of the field for the most part.
Does this mean the end of the Booth-Brennan partnership at work? Hopefully no, since that is one of the very best parts of "Bones."
"Bones" will return Monday, March 10 at 8 p.m. on Fox. »
