Yeah, we meant to find some rotten puns playing on “renewal” and “cancellation,” but we just couldn’t find a metaphor that would fit a vampire series, a teen drama about twin sisters, and a show about basketball dancers. (WTF?) Hard to believe, huh?
Be that as it may, HBO yesterday announced that it/they (we can never get the pronoun straight) have renewed TRUE BLOOD for a seventh season, which means that new showrunner Brian Buckner has made the cut.
While HBO was bragging, VH1 joined the party by announcing an upcoming second season for HIT THE FLOOR. Turns out that showrunner James LaRosa is a big hit at VH1. (We were gonna go off on a huge snark based on the concept that we couldn’t understand why, but sound editorial judgment has told us to leave it to your imagination instead.)
And, also yesterday, ABC Family informed the world that THE LYING GAME won’t have a third season. Wonder what as-good-as-former showrunner Chuck Pratt, Jr., has lined up next.
Hmm, we’ve enjoyed Pratt’s cliffhanger endings on TLG. Maybe he should join Buckner or LaRosa? Just don’t let him do the casting.
