ABC announced that they are NOT ordering any more of Selfie, and will let the series run out and finish its initial 13-episode order. Back to the Tardis with you girl!
On the other hand, they’ve added extra episodes to Forever, bringing the season count to 22 episodes. A renewal for a second season has yet to be announced. (Unless I missed it.)
For now here are the new 2014-2015 shows we know of that are getting full season orders or renewals…
- How to Get Away With Murder
- Jane the Virgin
- Madam Secretary
- NCIS: New Orleans
- The Flash
- The Mysteries of Laura
I’ve found myself quite surprised by the quality of the tale that Gotham is putting out, and despite the silliness of the series premiere of Scorpion, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by that series also. (For fans of Parenthood, if you watch Scorpion, tell me that Elyes Gabel‘s character, Walter O’Brien, not remind you of Max in some ways?)

There are a slew of tasty television shows returning and premiering this summer. Last season in particular, television writers left us drooling with incredible cliffhangers. Between the returning favorites and promising pilots, TV viewers are guaranteed hours of premium entertainment — but you’ll need the right cable package to view your favorites. Basic cable and satellite packages are being offered at substantially lower rates than usual, notes DirectTVdeal.com, making now a great time to find the best service for your watching your favorite 2013 summer series premier. Tune in to continue the juicy plot lines from last season’s cliffhangers and check out these snippets of upcoming series.
Dexter: For a couple of seasons, “Dexter” was just typical “Dexter.” The “I’m a serial killer that narrates every move and no one is smart enough to notice how weird I am” plot was running thin. With last year’s break through though — his adoptive sister Deb’s (and boss LaGuerta’s) revelation that he is a serial killer — ended with a crazy situation where Deb killed the captain of Miami Metro to protect Dexter’s darkly deranged secret. Is this season going to be Dexter’s undoing? Returns Sunday, June 30th.
Hell on Wheels: An instant classic from the first episode, “Hell on Wheels” might be the best show on television. Last season’s final episode ending with the death of the shows leading lady — Cullin’s lover — means the meanest man in the West has nothing left to live for, if he ever did. What in Heaven’s name is going to happen next? Returns Saturday, August 3rd.
The Newsroom: If you can only watch one show on television, this is it. There are too many twists and turns and plots and romances for a paragraph to explain this HBO hit, but there’s nothing else like it. This latest series by Aaron Sorkin is simply too good to miss. Jeff Daniels’ performance in “The Newsroom” is proving that he may be one of the most diverse actors in Hollywood. If I could just go on and on an on about this show, I would. Returns Sunday, July 14th.
Breaking Bad: Walter White began the series as a timid chemistry teacher and we’ve watched his shocking transformation into a real son of a bitch. Between murder and meth, Walter will surely continue his downward spiral into these final eight episodes. The big question is: what will Walt do with that big ol’ machine gun he retrieved from the trunk? Returns Sunday, August 11th.
