There is potential good news for fans of the Terriers TV show, which was cancelled after one season of 13 episodes on FX. There was some serious talk at the Atx Television Festival this weekend about making a sequel movie. Deadline reports creator and Ep Ted Griffin said, "We may have investigated [a reboot]," during a “Canceled Too Soon” Terriers panel. "I think we would like to make a movie. And I think we have the idea sort of what we’d want to do, we just need to clear it with Fox [21 Television Studios]."
Executive producer Shawn Ryan added, "There’s a couple of things we’d have to clear. Fox has the rights. This is the kind of show where I feel like if Donal and Mikey were up to it and Ted had the story he wanted to tell this is the world »
FX's critically acclaimed and cancelled before its time series "Terriers" may be making a comeback. The series followed an ex-cop and ex-con who start a P.I. business and was canned after one season, even though it has since become a major cult favorite.
"We may have investigated [a revival]. I think we would like to make a movie. And I think we have the idea sort of what we'd want to do, we just need to clear it with Fox. There's a couple of things we'd have to clear. Fox has the rights. This is the kind of show where I feel like if [stars] Donal [Logue] and Mikey [Raymond-James] were up to it and Ted had the story he wanted to tell this is the world we would definitely revisit, given the opportunity."
Logue is a series regular on Fox's "Gotham" so his commitments to that may interfere with his ability to star should such a project go forward. »

Among the terrific shows that audiences have feasted upon during the era of peak TV, FX‘s “Terriers” seemed to be just slightly ahead of its time. Critically acclaimed as it was, audiences didn’t tune into the drama about an ex-cop and ex-con who start a P.I. business, and the show was canceled after one season. […]

Some TV shows are meant to run for years and years, only getting better and more impactful the longer they go. Others, though, were destined to live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking corpse, and in some ways feel even more special because our time with them are so brief. Here are the five best one-season wonders: 5)Terriers. Terrible name, terrible marketing, and a premise that sounded been-there, done-that doomed this wonderful 2010 private eye drama with spectacular buddy chemistry between Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James. 4)Ez Streets. This intricate and engrossing 1996 drama about the cops and crooks of an unnamed Rust Belt city was a few years early for the cable drama revolution, and wildly out of place on CBS, but the lucky few who tuned in saw something special. 3)Joss Whedon's 2002 sci-fi/Western mash-up Firefly was doomed from the start, with a premise that was hard to »

(This post has no significant spoilers for "Mad Dogs," even though it's informed by a viewing of the entire first season. The comments section is a place where it's okay to discuss the full plot if you've finished it, but I'll be doing a separate post on Monday touching on a few developments from later in the season.) Late in the first episode of Amazon's newest original series "Mad Dogs," the show's four main characters — played by Romany Malco, Michael Imperioli, Steve Zahn, and Ben Chaplin — witness an act of violence. By the standards of modern TV drama, what they see isn't particularly extreme. But they're not watching it on TV, nor are they the sorts of jaded tough guys who populate the shows where this kind of thing might happen. They're just ordinary middle-aged guys on a vacation gone tragically awry, and as they consider the blood in front of them, »

Though 2015 brought an absurd bounty of great television, not to mention the proclamation that we had entered the era of #PeakTV, there’s absolutely no reason to think that 2016 will let up. At all. In the first few months of the year alone, there are a whole host of great returning series gearing back up, as well as a wide variety of new ones. There are so many, in fact, that it took some difficulty to narrow them down to under 30. But here we are.
So please note that this is by no means a comprehensive list – for those so inclined, by all means, get excited for Legends of Tomorrow, American Crime Story, The Magicians, Lucifer, and, sure, why not, Fuller House. The list below are just a few that seemed, for one reason or another, to be especially noteworthy. (In at least one instance, “noteworthy” is not necessarily a compliment. »
