Firefly 15th anniversary

It’s easy to forget that when Joss Whedon was hired to direct The Avengers, the decision raised some eyebrows from Hollywood’s elite. Whedon only had one movie to his name at that point, and was far better known for his work in television. But those of us who had seen Firefly, Whedon’s pulpy, ensemble-driven sci-fi western, and Serenity, the film continuation of the story, knew he had the chops to bring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes together.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the early cancellation of Firefly, and Zoic Studios, the Emmy-winning company that created the show’s visual effects, has created a video tribute to some of the best moments in the franchise. Take a quick flight back to the early 2000s and see the Serenity take flight once more in a brand new shot created specifically for this video. Read More »

fox fall 2018 tv trailers

Fox may have gotten a lot of flak for cancelling beloved series like The Last Man on Earth and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (which thankfully got saved a day later by NBC), but the network will be making up for it with a slew of new — and one old — shows in its upcoming fall 2018 season.

Following its Upfronts presentation, the network has released a new batch of Fox Fall 2018 TV trailers, including promos for comedies like The Cool Kids, Rel, and the resurrected Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing. Meanwhile, we also get a peek at midseason dramas like the promising The Passage and Proven Innocent, alongside a new installment of Cosmos.

We’ll be keeping tabs on all the shows that will get the axe, and a few more that are miraculously saved. Below, see our running list of the 2018 canceled TV shows and which shows are coming back.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Renewed

It turns out there’s some good left to do by the power of the internet after all.

Earlier this week, fans of the FOX comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine raised hell when the network decided not to renew the series for a sixth season. Of course this was hardly a surprising action from the network that previously canceled championed series like Family Guy, Firefly and Arrested Development. But FOX’s loss has become another network’s gain.

NBC announced late last night that they would be picking up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a sixth season of 13 episodes. That’s a shorter season than Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans are used to, but surely they’re just glad to have the show coming back. Read More »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Canceled

At the end of the day yesterday, FOX decided to do what they do best: cancel shows that people love. The network announced the cancellation of the cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine starring Andy Samberg, the post-apocalytpic comedy Last Man on Earth starring Will Forte and the dysfunctional family comedy The Mick starring Kaitlin Olson.

This is not the first time FOX has given the axe to shows that fans are passionate about. But we’re in a new age of television where canceled or finished shows aren’t truly dead, and it sounds like there’s a chance at least one of these shows may have a continued life outside of FOX. Read More »
