ABC has topped up the first season of The Rookie, adding an additional seven episodes to its original order of 13. That gives the cop drama a total of 20 episodes, which is enough to be considered a full season.
Just three weeks into its run, the hour-long series got a late start to the season with a mid-October premiere. Early reviews have been mostly positive, though ratings have not fared quite as well. While drawing a decent-sized audience, the show has been trailing its 10:00pm Tuesday time slot competition in both total viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic.
The Rookie is led by Nathan Fillion, best known for his seven-year turn on Castle. He plays John Nolan, a middle aged man who experiences a life-changing incident that inspires him to pursue his dream of being an officer for the Los Angeles Police Department. But as the force's oldest rookie, he must deal with skepticism from senior officers and the demands of keeping up with not only the criminals, but the younger cops in the precinct.

Showtime announced today that Penny Dreadful is heading back to TV in the form of a follow-up series called Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. The new installment will be set in 1938 and will usher in the story's next chapter with a newfound focus on social consciousness and historical awareness.
The original series premiered in 2014 and went on to air a total of three seasons on the cable network. Its sudden cancellation in the summer of 2016 took many fans by surprise when it was announced following its third-season finale. After a major character death during the 2-part conclusion, the words "The End" appeared on-screen to the shock of many.
Production on Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is set to kick off in 2019. The series will act as a spiritual descendant of its mother show with an all-new cast of characters in 1930s Los Angeles, which is filled with Mexican-American folklore and social tension rooted in the conflict between characters connected to the deity Santa Muerte and others allied with the Devil.

CBS All Access announced today that Strange Angel has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes six weeks after the conclusion of the historical period drama's 10-episode summer run, which garnered generally favorable reviews from critics.
The series premiered on the streaming service in June as its third original scripted drama. It is, though, its first without roots in any previous series; The Good Fight is a spin-off of The GoodWife and Star Trek: Discovery is the latest entry in the storied Star Trek franchise.
Based on George Pendle's book of the same name, StrangeAngel follows the real-life story of Jack Parsons, a brilliant blue-collar worker in 1930s Los Angeles who began as a janitor at a chemical factory but had fantastical dreams that led him to birth the unknown discipline of American rocketry. Along the way, he fell into a mysterious world where he become a disciple of occultist Aleister Crowley, whose teachings of self-actualization supported Parsons' unprecedented endeavor to the stars.
Look for Season 2 of Strange Angel in 2019.

Another hero has fallen at Netflix. The streaming service confirmed this evening that Luke Cage has been cancelled after two seasons. The news comes just one week after fellow superhero drama Iron Fist was given the ax - also after its second season.
The reasons behind the recent moves are unclear, but seem to indicate that Netflix might be looking to taper back on their Marvel-related original content. Remaining active series include Jessica Jones, The Punisher, and Daredevil, which just released its third season today. It is not clear if the Luke Cage or Iron Fist characters will make any appearances in the other shows' upcoming seasons.
Luke Cage followed the titular crime-fighting superhero who uses his superhuman strength to clean up the streets of Harlem.

It is being reported that Magnum P.I. has been added to the list of new shows to receive a full season order from CBS. The network has topped up its freshman run with an unspecified number of episodes, said to be somewhere in the range of seven.
The new series, which is an updated take on the classic 1980s action drama, premiered in late September and has been a decent performer on Monday nights through its first four episodes. Critical reception has been mixed, with some reviewers unsure of its ability to live up to its source material.
Magnum P.I. follows security consultant Thomas Magnum, who works as a private investigator in Hawaii making a name for himself by taking cases nobody else will. Along with help from a team of fellow vets, Magnum utilizes his military skills to make a name for himself while on all sorts of sun-drenched adventures.

It is being reported that Netflix has cancelled Marvel's Iron Fist after two seasons. The sad news comes a month following the release of the drama's sophomore run. The show aired a total of 23 episodes.
Iron Fist was the fourth Marvel series on the streaming service and is the first of the five currently airing to get the axe. The news is not completely surprising, as critics and viewers had mixed reactions to it from the start. Issues from a rocky first season appeared to be at least partially-addressed in Season 2, but alas the consensus only mildly improved.
The series follows presumed-dead billionaire Danny Rand, who survived a plane crash only to mysteriously return to New York fifteen years later in order to connect with his past. Only now, his body is a living weapon with a mastery of kung fu and the ability to summon a power known as the Iron Fist. When a long-destined enemy emerges, Rand must choose between reclaiming his family's legacy and his duty to fight the criminal element as the Iron Fist.

Fox today topped up the sophomore season of The Resident, ordering an additional nine episodes to bring its total to 22 - a full season's worth. The good news comes three episodes into the current season, which is so far off to a solid start.
The medical drama premiered early this year as a mid-season entry with a 14-episode run. After a strong showing, the network opted to move it into its regular fall lineup for the 2018-2019 season. The move appears to be paying off thus far, as the show has been garnering consistent viewership in its Monday night time slot with ratings on-par with what it brought in during Season 1.
The Resident stars Matt Czuchry as a senior resident and Emily VanCamp as a nurse practitioner at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. The series brings to light the hard truths about modern-day medicine - both good and bad. Some lives are saved while others are lost, but expectations will always be shattered.

It's official: Veronica Mars is returning to television. Hulu has ordered eight new episodes of the detective series with star Kristen Bell on-board to reprise her role as the titular character. A premiere is expected sometime in 2019.
The noir mystery drama first premiered 14 years ago, airing three seasons on UPN and The CW before being cancelled in 2007. While never a ratings standout, the series did amass a loyal fan base who, in 2013, helped fund a feature film via a Kickstarter campaign that accumulated over $5 million.
Created by Rob Thomas, Veronica Mars follows a young private investigator in the seaside town of Neptune, California. In the revival, Veronica is hired to investigate the recent murders of spring breakers in the community. The case will play out over the course of the season, with Neptune's wealthy elite butting heads with the working class folk, who feel the financial impact the murders are having on tourism.

NBC announced today that it is increasing its order for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, adding five episodes to the comedy's debut outing on the network. Slated for a mid-season run in 2018-2019, the half-hour series will now air a total of 18 episodes rather than the originally-planned 13.
It was back in May that the network saved the series just one day after it was cancelled by Fox after five seasons. Though the quick revival came as somewhat of a surprise, the move to NBC does make sense, as the network had originally expressed interest in the show back in 2012 while it was searching for a home.
Led by Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows an offbeat group of detectives and staff at the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department. Samberg plays the eclectic Jake Peralta, a talented but immature detective whose carefree style clashes with his stern, by-the-books captain, played by Andre Braugher.
