"Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D" Renewed For Season 7 By ABC

  • Deadline
Ahead of its sixth season premiere this summer, ABC has renewed Marvel’s "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." for a seventh season. It is believed to consist of 13 episodes, on par with Season 6.

The timing of the early renewal is likely tied to the cast’s option coming up. Along with picking up the actors’ options, ordering Season 7 ahead of time would allow for the two shorter seasons to be filmed back-to-back, which helps to reduces costs.

When "S.H.I.E.L.D."'s move to summer was announced in May, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey made it clear that Season 6 was not envisioned as a final one.

Tim Allen: I Like Pissing People Off. And Nothing Does More Than a Very Funny Conservative.

Tim Allen: I Like Pissing People Off. And Nothing Does More Than a Very Funny Conservative.
If you ever needed an example of how unpredictable the TV business has become, consider the breakout new series that’s actually seven years old: “Last Man Standing.” The Fox sitcom was left for dead last year, when ABC — which didn’t own the Tim Allen show — canceled it after deciding the economics no longer worked.

Fox, however, does own the show — for now — through sister studio 21st Century Fox TV. Initial talks to immediately relaunch the show fell flat when Fox didn’t have room on its schedule. But then came New Fox.

As it prepares to reinvent itself as a standalone network, Fox is repositioning itself as more of a network with broad appeal, which includes stocking up with live events like Thursday Night Football. With the NFL on Thursday, “we saw an opportunity on Friday night for comedy,” said Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn.

Are We Ever Going to See a “No Game No Life” Season 2?

No Game No Life started out as a series of novels written by Yu Kamiya. There were nine novels all together, published between April 2012 and August 2016. Needless to say, the novels were quite popular, so much so that they were eventually adapted into an Anime miniseries for television. The series consisted of 12 episodes and was released in Japan in 2014, two years before the final novel was even published. That fact alone should attest to the popularity of the series. In addition, another adaptation was made for a movie called No Game No Life the Movie: Zero,

‘Smilf’ Season 2 Trailer: Frankie Shaw’s Showtime Comedy Is Back with a Vengeance
Get ready to head back to Boston. “Smilf,” one of 2017’s breakout new shows is returning for Season 2 next year and if the trailer for the new batch of episodes is any indication, no one involved has any intention of slowing down.

Series writer/creator Frankie Shaw is back as Bridgette, the single mother trying to navigate parenthood, the dating world, a complicated relationship with her boss, and the general predatory behavior of men in power.

Accompanied by a release date in January of next year, the full trailer shows that Bridgette’s life is still as unpredictable as it was in the opening eight-episode season. Weaving through the real life challenges of maintaining a relationship with her mother Tutu (Rosie O’Donnell) are plenty of whimsical fantasy sequences. Some surprises in store for Season 2 include a Wild West showdown, complete with a “Time’s up!’ declaration that might just have more meanings than one.
