Miracles really can happen. Right about the time sports fans are waiting for the results of the NFL Draft, television fans are anticipating the news of renewals, new pilots, and cancellations.
Along with Galavant, the other ABC show “on the bubble” for cancellation, AGENT CARTER was miraculously renewed for a second season. Who knew that ABC could be so open to these smaller shows with less than stellar ratings? I’m glad they renewed AGENT CARTER, since it was most likely my only favorite new show this year.
ABC also ordered nine new shows. Six dramas including one from REVENGE’s showrunner Shonda Rhimes called “The Catch.” The others are varied in their subject matter: an oil boom project, a biblical saga “Of Kings and Prophets,” the FBI thriller “Quantico,” an anthology series “Wicked City,” and “The Family” starring Joan Allen. The three comedies coming to ABC are a reboot of “The Muppets,” Ken Jeong’s “Dr. Ken,” and Dan Savage’s “The Real O’Neals.”
Are you excited about Agent Carter returning to the small screen? What about any of these new pilots? Let us know in the comments!
