Absentia will indeed be absent from Amazon Prime’s lineup moving forward: The Stana Katic drama series is ending with its previously released third season.

Charlotte needs to find a new fairytale for Seasons 2 and 3

Theo James will not return to Masterpiece on PBS’ “Sanditon,” the public broadcasting station said on Friday. On Thursday, the show was renewed for Seasons 2 and 3.

Yesterday, the PBS Masterpiece folks said star Rose Williams will return as heroine Charlotte Heywood, but added that “further casting will be announced at a later date.”

Well, we know one role that now could use an announcement.

“Although I relished playing Sidney, for me, I’ve always maintained that his journey concluded as I wanted it to,” James said in a statement sent to TheWrap. “The broken fairy-tale like ending between Charlotte and Sidney is different, unique and so interesting to me and I wish the cast and crew of ‘Sanditon’ every success with future series.“

Fox Not Moving Forward With ‘The Goonies’ Re-Enactment Drama
Network has also decided against “Blood Relative” pilot

Fox has decided not to move forward with two drama pilots, “Blood Relative” and an untitled drama that was to follow three kids as they tried to make a shot-for-shot remake of Steven Spielberg’s “The Goonies.”

The ladies of Mom welcome a new (and familiar) addition to their tight-knit group in the May 13 series finale.

Two and a Half Men alumna Melanie Lynskey (who most recently guest-starred on fellow Chuck Lorre sitcom Young Sheldon) appears in the above clip as Shannon, an AA newcomer who is reluctant to open up to Bonnie and the gals. “I don’t have anything in common with you guys,” she says. “I mean, you don’t know what real problems are.” The ladies share a good laugh, then fill Shannon in on their lowest points, including Bonnie’s previous estrangement from Christy,

‘Saturday Night Live’ Spoofs ‘Mare of Easttown’ with ‘Murdur Durdur’ Sketch — Watch

‘Saturday Night Live’ Spoofs ‘Mare of Easttown’ with ‘Murdur Durdur’ Sketch — Watch
The Kate Winslet HBO miniseries “Mare of Easttown” received a pop-culture seal off approval: It got the “Saturday Night Live” treatment. In a sketch led by Kate McKinnon as the grizzled Pennsylvania detective, “Murdur Durdur” riffed on the Delaware County accents and featured host Elon Musk as a shady priest.

In the fake show promo, a vocieover intones: “You’ve seen dead teens in New York, Chicago, and Boston, but what about another city with very specific whites? Pennsylvania whites?” “Murdur Durdur” also parodies Winslet as a British person playing a salt-of-the-Earth Pennsylvanian. The commercials bills “Murdur Durdur” as “an extremely Pennsylvania crime show.”

Musk added to a line of unusual and potentially risky “SNL” hosts, often to impressive ratings, including Donald Trump, Al Gore, Ralph Nader, and Al Sharpton. While he may have seemed like an unlikely choice, and certainly was a controversial one thanks to his obscene wealth,

SNL Spoofs HBO's Mare of Easttown: Kate McKinnon and Elon Musk Star

SNL Spoofs HBO's Mare of Easttown: Kate McKinnon and Elon Musk Star
Saturday Night Live took aim at prestige TV this weekend with a parody of Kate Winslet’s HBO crime drama Mare of Easttown — which, in the sketch comedy’s jocular love language, translated to “Murder Durder.”

In the clip above, McKinnon plays Kare, a “grizzled lady detective with a very specific accent” who attempts to solve the murder of someone’s “durder” (that’s daughter for any English speakers out there) in a small Pennsylvania town full of very “specific whites.” The commercial ribs the state’s love of Wawa and hockey, and even includes a special cameo by Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty.

SNL Video: Elon Musk Reveals He Has Asperger Syndrome, Stops Short of Testing NBC Censors During Monologue
Saturday Night Live host Elon Musk made an unexpected announcement during his opening monologue when he revealed he has Asperger syndrome.

When disclosing the neurodevelopmental disorder, Musk incorrectly claimed that he was “making history” as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL — “or at least the first to admit it,” he said. “So, I won’t make a lot of eye contact with the cast tonight. But don’t worry, I’m pretty good at running ‘human’ in emulation mode.”

Who Are the Greatest Mouseketeers?

Who Are the Greatest Mouseketeers?
March marked the 65th anniversary of the wrap of the first season of the “Mickey Mouse Club,” and the recent death of one of the original Mouseketeers, Johnny Crawford, reminded fans of the enduring talent that the show, and especially its early 1990s iteration, brought to the entertainment industry. The original “Mickey Mouse Club” launched the career of Annette Funicello, who occupied a beloved niche in audiences’ hearts for six decades, and the 1990s revival produced Oscar nominees and artists who’ve sold tens of millions of albums and redefined pop music and pop culture. But who are the greatest Mouseketeers?

Mythic Quest fans knew the moment Poppy and Ian both became creative directors, there’d be drama. And that’s saying a lot when one considers all the histrionics that swirl around the irreverent characters on Apple TV+’s workplace comedy.

When Season 2 debuted Friday with not one, but two new episodes, Poppy and Ian struggled to come up with the next big Mythic Quest game. Ian ran off to a retreat to find his inspiration, and Poppy got laid, per Ian’s advice. Or so it seemed.

13 Most Controversial ‘SNL’ Hosts and Guests of All Time

13 Most Controversial ‘SNL’ Hosts and Guests of All Time
The news that Elon Musk would be hosting the May 8 episode of “Saturday Night Live” wasn’t exactly met with the warmest of welcomes, by either fans or the cast. The CEO and Technoking of Tesla as well as the Chief Engineer of SpaceX sparked outrage when sharing the announcement last month, prompting cast members Bowen Yang, Andrew Dismukes, and Aidy Bryant to throw barely veiled shade at their upcoming host.

Musk is easily one of the richest people on the planet, so some felt it was a little out of touch to bring aboard someone without much in the way of cultural bonafides. Still, he has plenty of experience on TV, including “Rick and Morty” and “The Big Bang Theory,” and his Twitter activity suggests someone capable (maybe?) of laughing at themselves.

Regardless, the stunt casting decision should throw some fresh (and much-needed) fuel on the NBC sketch comedy series,
