Oscar nominee Michael Clarke Duncan, remembered for his roles in such films as The Green Mile, Daredevil, Sin City and Green Lantern, died Monday from complications of a heart attack. He was 54.
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.
Is anyone else watching The Finder on Fox these days? The Bones spin-off has been on for a couple of weeks now – the third episode airs tonight at 8pm – and, while I doubt it’s ever going to be a show that’ll win awards and critical praise, I have to admit that it’s a pretty perfect example of what I call the “Good Enough” genre of television – and an odd example of watching a show find itself in very public circumstances.
Creator Hart Hanson and star Geoff Stults discuss their new Fox drama The Finder, its roots in Hanson’s hit series Bones, and what viewers can expect from the first season.
