'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' Renewed For Season 5

The CW announced today that Penn & Teller: Fool Us has been renewed for a fifth season. The British-acquired magic act reality show, which stars comedic magicians Penn & Teller, originated out of the UK but was cancelled by its original network ITV after just one season.

Penn & Teller: Fool Us is an hour-long magic competition hosted by famed Las Vegas entertainers Penn & Teller. Episodes feature up-and-coming magicians who are invited to perform their best trick in front of a live audience, and the legendary duo try their best to figure out just how the trick was executed. If they are fooled successfully, the magician who performed the act is invited to join Penn & Teller on stage at their show in the Rio Hotel and Casino.

Hulu Cancels 'Difficult People'

It is being reported that Hulu has cancelled Difficult People after three seasons. The news comes two months after the comedy's third-season finale, and brings to an end one of the streaming service's longest-running and best-reviewed original series.
Created by and starring Julie Klausner, Difficult People followed two best friends and aspiring comedians, played by Klauser and Billy Eichner, living in New York City. Hating everybody but each other, their irreverent antics land them in some very awkward situations.
The cancellation of Difficult People leaves just two comedies in Hulu's current line-up: Casual - which has already been renewed for a fourth and final season, and Future Man - which premiered today.

'9JKL' Receives A Small Top-Up

The freshman season of 9JKL just got a bit longer, with CBS today adding three additional episodes to the comedy's initial 13-episode order. While more episodes is good news in the short-term, the small top-up does fall short of a full season order, raising questions about the show's future.

The future of 9JKL is ultimately up in the air for now. A second season could still happen but its likelihood appears to be on the low side, perhaps depending on its performance over the remainder of the season.

American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace

it’s underlined how perfectly cast Edgar Ramirez is as the title character, Penelope Cruz as Gianni’s sister Donatella Versace, Darren Criss as serial killer Andrew Cunanan and Ricky Martin as Gianni Versace’s partner Antonio D’Amico. FX has revealed the premiere date for the the latest installment of the network’s anthology series is Jan-17-2018, it looks like show creator Ryan Murphy and company are truly digging to the advantages of filming a story within the fashion world. There’s plenty of ’90s pastels and luxurious estates to help keep this true crime saga full of energy.

'Kevin (Probably) Saves The World' Earns 3 More Episodes


ABC has reportedly ordered three additional episodes for the first season of Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. The freshman drama premiered last month and is six episodes into its run.

While the three-episode pickup does extend the show's season, the small number raises questions about the show's future. On one hand, the total number of episodes falls short of a full season order - something typically required for a show to return for another season. But on the other hand, ABC's top new drama The Good Doctor, only received five extra episodes for its first season and is considered a shoo-in for a renewal.
For now it appears the network is taking a wait-and-see approach to Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, with its future likely-dependent on how it performs for the remainder of the season.

'Louie' Officially Cancelled At FX


It's official: Louie is done at FX. The cable network announced today it has severed all ties with show creator Louis C.K. after the comedian admitted to past sexual misconduct towards five women between 2002 and 2005.
The move predominantly affects the overall deal FX had with C.K.'s production company, "Pig Newton", which today had its involvement removed from the four shows it currently produces with the network. The other casualty, though, is Louie, the acclaimed comedy that helped make C.K. more of a household name.
Created, written, directed, produced, and edited by Louis C.K., Louie followed a fictionalized version of the stand-up comedian and his everyday ordeals around life in New York City. Each episode included a scripted story and a mix of C.K.'s original stand-up material.
