In case you hadn’t heard….
Supernatural has been renewed for it’s 11th season. ELEVEN.
Not only is this exciting for me as a fan, but it’s incredible to see a genre show with limited viewership get this far.
I keep hearing ‘that show is still on the air!?!’ followed by gaping jaws of disbelief. It’s been ten years and yes, it’s still on. And the best part? It’s still relevant. The show is about the boys again, and the current story lines are deeply personal and weighty (I was going to include a joke about how you can’t really relate to the Mark of Cain here, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it because it actually is very real and symbolic – someday I’ll write a whole novel about that).
So say what you will, I get that some people are annoyed about it but that’s the way it goes. I for one am ecstatic – deal.
That being said – Jane the Virgin was also renewed which isn’t surprising considering their Golden Globe win. To be fair, I haven’t seen any of the show, so I don’t really have any just reason to be as angry as I am. But it’s aggravating to see other shows with talent get passed up, especially for the CW. Let’s be real, there isn’t much there that is worth awarding (save for a certain show I could mention about a pair of brothers who hunt evil……ok and Whose Line – duh)
Lea Michelle and now Nick Jonas have joined Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens for the coming year. This terrifies me because I cannot stand Lea Michelle (I tried, I watched some of Glee and I tried) and last I checked Nick couldn’t act for beans. Though I suppose in retrospect – Ryan Murphy is pretty hit and miss to begin with so we’ll see how that goes.
New photos from the set of Sherlock have emerged (I say new but it’s been, like a week). You can view the new and interesting costumes here. There are a slew of reasons why our Sherlock and Watson look like they’ve joined Guy Ritchie’s adventures and none of them make any sort of sense within the logic of the show. I’m doing my very very best to hold out my thoughts till the special airs, but I’m already massively annoyed with Steven Moffat as it is.
ABC just announced they’re ordering a crime-thriller from Shonda Rimes – it looks to be headed by solely females which I find fantastic. It’s also been pointed out that ABC is one of the most diverse networks on television. It’s just a pity that all of the shows are so formulaic and bland.
ALSO – big news of the day! Emma Watson has just been officially announced to play Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast. It’s been a rumor for quite some time now and it’s nice to know it’s official. I should be wary – as we didn’t need a live-action anything. However I adore Emma Watson and Beauty and the Beast will forever be one of my favorite stories. And it’s Disney. I may just weep tears of joy until it’s release.
