Hot on the heels of the series premiere, TNT is already rolling in the black gold that is their revival of Dallas. The series has been averaging about 6.9 million viewers in its first season this summer, and that’s after decades away from Southfork and the familiar characters from the classic series. Now with a larger family, the show is back with a vengeance and TNT has decided to keep it around for a second season with a 15-episode order just announced, slated to air sometime in 2013. But that’s not all. TNT also brings back the female detective duo Rizzoli & Isles for a fourth season next year. More details, including full press releases for both renewals, after the jump.
Rizzoli & Isles is a new TNT drama, based on characters created by best-selling author Tess Gerritsen, that follows Boston detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander). Complete opposites in almost every way, the good friends work together to solve crimes and bust some of Boston’s most notorious criminals in the homicide division.
During a recent interview for the show’s premiere, actress Angie Harmon talked about being on the verge of retirement, before she was offered her dream job, Rizzoli & Isles. Check out what she had to say after the jump:
With Chuck returning with new episodes on January 10th, NBC has started promoting the show by releasing three clips from the season premiere. If you’re like me and a huge fan of the show, you’ll enjoy the clips as they showcase Chuck’s new abilities.
*Spoiler Alert* If you missed last season’s finale, it ended with Chuck getting a new version of the intersect that’s fundamentally changed the show. Now, instead of Chuck helpless against the agents of Fulcrum, he’s going to spend this season as a super spy. Should be a lot of fun. Hit the jump for the clips:
Even though it’s only a month away, the January 10th 2-hour premiere for season three of Chuck still feels like an eternity. To help make eternity feel not as long, NBC has released a six-minute super-preview of Chuck’s third season. It’s not really spoilerific as it goes more into Chuck’s (Zachary Levi) new powers, how that will change his relationship with Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) and Casey (Adam Baldwin), what happens now that Awesome/Devin (Ryan McPartlin) knows he’s a spy, and a first look at some of the killer new guest stars including Brandon Routh, Kristen Kruek, and Angie Harmon.
Hit the jump to check out the preview. Chuck returns for its third season on Sunday, January 10th at 9/8c with a two-hour premiere on NBC.
NBC has just announced Chuck will finally return to the airwaves on Sunday, January 10th with back-to-back original episodes (9-11 p.m. ET) before the series moves to its regular day and time (Mondays 8-9 p.m. ET) beginning January 11. For fans of the show, this is welcome news, as it’s getting back its original time slot and it’s being paired again with Heroes.
If you aren’t aware, NBC has loaded up this season with tons of guest stars like Angie Harmon (Law & Order), who will play Sydney, an enemy operative; Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), who is set to play CIA Agent Daniel Shaw; Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) will play Colonel Keller, a soldier and spy from Casey’s past; Kristin Kreuk (Smallville), who will portray Hannah — a potential love interest for Chuck; Armand Assante as dictator Premier Goya, who is the target of an assassin; Steve Austin will portray Hugo Panzer, who becomes entangled in Chuck’s first solo mission; and Vinnie Jones (Snatch) will play Carl Stromberg, an arms dealer.
