The size of the order, which is below full-season 22 episodes, is not surprising. Shorter-run seasons — between 13 and 18 episodes — have become the norm for heavily serialized broadcast dramas, including NBC’s This Is Us, Fox’s Empire and ABC’s How To Get Away with Murder.
So far this fall “Manifest” has averaged a 3.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 17.2 million viewers in L+7, making it television’s #1 new series in both measures.

“Manifest” stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise,

Williams told The Guardian in an interview published Wednesday that her last “Game of Thrones” shoot was “beautiful,” and she “ended on the perfect scene.” However, spoiler alert, the actress said it was nothing out of the ordinary in terms of who she was acting with — which was nobody.
“I was alone – shocker!” Williams said. “Arya’s always bloody alone. But I was alone and I had watched a lot of other people wrap. I knew the drill,

“Breaking Away” (1979)
Bonus, or post-credit scenes, have become staples of big blockbuster films, and with the highly-anticipated “Halloween” scaring up moviegoers, you might wonder whether it has a post-credits scene.
The answer: It sort of has a post-credits scene. If you stay until the very end — past all of the credits — you will continue to hear Michael Myers’ breathing. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you’ll know Myers’ breathing is somewhat labored due to his famous mask. And sometimes, that’s all you can hear after one of his gruesome kills.
So, while there isn’t an actual post-credits scene in the visual sense, fans are left haunted by a sound that has become synonymous with the “Halloween” franchise. And maybe — just maybe — it means Michael Myers might always

Peters plays Warren Lipka in Bart Layton’s movie — a hybrid of a fictionalized heist film and a documentary about four young men who tried to rob some priceless, rare books from a library in Kentucky. Irl Lipka serves as a charismatic, unpredictable and unreliable narrator of sorts in the film. He’s the ring leader of the lawless crew. And though Layton asked his actors not to interact with the feature’s real subjects, Peters said he embraced the spirit of the project and broke the rules.
“I was channeling Warren and I found Warren on Twitter, and messaged with him and started a correspondence, and one of the main things I wanted to ask him was, ‘Why?
