Netflix Cancels 'Disjointed' (8 days ago)
It is being reported that Netflix is passing on a second season of Disjointed. The cancellation comes after a first season that received decidedly below-average reviews from both audiences and critics.
Co-created by Chuck Lorre, the pot-themed comedy released its first 10 episodes last fall followed by 10 more earlier this year. The show's total of 20 episodes gives it the highest episode count for one season of any other comedy on the streaming service.
Disjointed stars Kathy Bates as a longtime cannabis user, activist, and lawyer for the cause. With help from some friends and her business-minded son, she works to turn her local dispensary into a big-box company.
NBC Renews 'Midnight, Texas' (8 days ago)
NBC announced today that Midnight, Texas has been picked up for Season 2. The supernatural drama premiered last July for a 10-episode summer stint that, while ultimately garnering mixed reviews, did draw solid viewership numbers for the network over the course of its run.
A few changes are in store for the series going forward. Original showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen is moving on to other projects, thus making way for a new showrunning team of Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, who have already worked on the show as consulting producers. Also, Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez will not be returning as series regulars. The two original cast members may however still make guest-starring appearances.
It is not yet clear when Midnight, Texas will return for Season 2. While NBC could opt to move the show into its regular fall lineup, it will more than likely remain as summer fare in 2019.

Fox Renews 'The Four' (11 days ago)
Fox announced today that The Four: Battle For Stardom has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes just hours ahead of tonight's first-season finale, where the singing competition will crown its first-ever champion.
Since its premiere earlier this year, the new series has been a solid performer for Fox on Thursday nights in the 8:00pm time slot. While not quite as formidable as its big-name scripted competition such as The Big Bang Theory and Grey's Anatomy, its ratings have made it the network's top new reality series debut in a number of years.
The Four is a vocal competition that starts out with four pre-selected finalists as chosen by producers during earlier auditions. Each week they fight to keep their spot, as hungry challengers perform for a panel of judges and a live audience to earn their right to battle it out for one of the spots.
Look for Season 2 of The Four to premiere as early as this summer.

The teams must use their combined smarts in order to create bigger, faster, and stronger armored machines than their opponents.
'Once Upon A Time' Ending After Season 7 (11 days ago)
ABC made it official today: Once Upon a Time is coming to an end after its current seventh season. The long-running fairy tale drama will be signing off after 155 episodes, which is an impressive feat for a serialized drama by today's standards.
The move to end the series does not come as a complete surprise, as the show underwent some significant retooling ahead of Season 7, including creative and casting changes as well as move to Fridays from its long-held Sunday night time slot. Considering the show's time on the air, the writing appeared to be on the wall for a conclusion in the near future.
Fans can look forward to Once Upon a Time's final stretch of episodes to return on March 2, with the series finale expected to air in May.
