We’re in upfronts week, when the networks announce their new line-ups for the new television year starting in September, revealing what shows are returning and what shows are premiering. Less excitingly for fans and creators, however, it’s also when the shows get officially cancelled by the networks, sometimes without making much noise about it. If you’re wondering whether your favorite bubble shows have quietly met their end, here’s a list of the shows that won’t be returning for next year.
Ahead of its upfront presentation on Monday, Fox has announced its renewing the Kiefer Sutherland thriller Touch and canceling the J.J. Abrams-produced Alcatraz and the Bones spinoff The Finder.
The stars and producers of Fox’s new supernatural thriller Alcatraz spoke with journalists at WonderCon in Anaheim about what to expect in next week’s season finale — and, they hope, beyond.
The stars and creative masterminds of Alcatraz appeared at WonderCon to reveal some secrets and drop a few spoilers about the Fox drama, such as who is still alive in the present day and how many mysteries next week’s season finale will resolve.
As soon as January arrives and the holidays are out the way, television can finally begin to settle back into the business of offering enjoyable entertainment on a regular basis. Not only will we get new episodes of favorite shows like Fringe and Parks and Recreation, but there are also midseason premieres of favorites old and, just maybe, new. Here are five you should pay attention to.
Fox has released a teaser for the midseason premiere of Alcatraz, the new supernatural thriller from J.J. Abrams and Lost producer Elizabeth Sarnoff.
Executive Producer Elizabeth Sarnoff, director Jack Bender and the cast of Alcatraz treated fans to a screening of the drama as well as a lively Q&A session at Comic-Con International.
