Schmigadoon is no longer singing on Apple TV+
January 18th, 2024 under Apple TV+. [ Comments: none ]

Apple TV+ gave us something to sing about when they gave Schmigadoon a series order. However, today, The show’s co-creator, Cinco Paul, announced that the fat lady has sung.

I am sad to share that Apple will not be moving forward with season 3 of Schmigadoon! The season is written (including 25 new songs), but we unfortunately won’t be making it. Such is life. I want to thank everyone involved with the show, our incredible cast & crew & writers, our wonderful supporters at Broadway Video, Universal, & Apple, for everything they did to make it happen. It’s a miracle we even got two seasons, honestly, and I’m so grateful we did. And to all the fans of the show out there-thank you with all of my heart. Your love and support has meant so much, and the fact that you connected with our show, that it brought you some joy, means the world to me. This was tough news to get, but the optimist in me is convinced it’s not the end of Schmigadoon…and maybe it’s even a happy beginning.
Love, Cinco

Schmigadoon focused on a couple, Keegan-Michael Key and Cecily Strong, who found themselves in a hidden town where people sang songs from musicals from the ’40s and ’50s. At first, they couldn’t wait to get out of there. But then, for the second season, they couldn’t wait to get back. However, this time, they found themselves in Schmicago, in the era of Fosse, the ’60s and ’70s.

I was so looking forward to seeing what was next for the couple. Because I am a girl who loves a toe-tapping musical. And that is what they delivered!

Hopefully, someone will see this news and give us a third season. And then we will have something to sing about.

Apple TV+ is no longer partying with The Afterparty
October 14th, 2023 under Apple TV+. [ Comments: none ]

The After Party just concluded its second season on Apple TV+. And like one of the guests at the party, the show is dead.

Well, it is on life support because Deadline reports that Sony is shopping it around. But I have a feeling that no one is going to want the comedy that stars Tiffany Haddish.

The murder mystery had a good first season. But the second one lost its magic.

For All Mankind found a way to top itself again
October 12th, 2023 under Apple TV+. [ Comments: none ]

On November 18th, we are getting season 4 of For All Mankind on Apple TV+. The series is an alternate universe where John Lennon is still alive, and we have traveled to places we can only dream about.

During the first season, they prepared to go to the moon. They followed that up by colonizing it. After that, it was time to go to Mars. And this season, they are looking to do to Mars what they did to the moon.

Rocketing into the new millennium in the eight years since season three, Happy Valley has rapidly expanded its footprint on Mars by turning former foes into partners. Now 2003, the focus of the space program has turned to the capture and mining of extremely valuable, mineral-rich asteroids that could change the future of both Earth and Mars. But simmering tensions between the residents of the now-sprawling international base threaten to undo everything they are working towards.

If this season is like the first three, I can’t wait to be on the edge of my seat to see how their alternate universe is so much cooler than ours and how they learn to live on Mars.

The Morning Show is going to burn it all down this season
August 24th, 2023 under Apple TV+, Jon Hamm, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]

Now that Steven Carrell’s character is dead, The Morning Show can move on from him being the villain. So things are going to change in season 3.

The future of the network is thrown into question and loyalties are pushed to the brink when a tech titan (Jon Hamm) takes an interest in UBA. Unexpected alliances form, private truths are weaponized, and everyone is forced to confront their core values both in and out of the newsroom.

That is just a description of what we can expect. But the trailer shows us there is going to be so much more. And I am here to watch every second of their lives being destroyed in front of and behind the camera.

I am a former national television news employee, and this show makes me want to get back into the business. And no other show has done that. I won’t do it, but this show tempts me.

The Morning Show, which stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, returns to Apple TV+ on September 13th with all new episodes.

Is Jon Hamm going to save or kill The Morning Show?
July 27th, 2023 under Apple TV+, Jon Hamm, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]

Spoiler alert, now that Steve Carrell’s character is dead, The Morning Show needs a new villain. And it looks like they are going to find him in Jon Hamm.

In “The Morning Show” season three, the future of the network is thrown into question and loyalties are pushed to the brink when a tech titan takes an interest in UBA. Unexpected alliances form, private truths are weaponized, and everyone is forced to confront their core values both in and out of the newsroom.

Will Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon work together? Will Bill Crudup learn his place? Will Mark Duplass finally find his balls?

We will have to tune into Apple TV+ on September 13th to find out. And I can’t wait! Because even though I am not a fan of Aniston or Witherspoon, I love this show. It doesn’t even cause me to have flashbacks to my days in network news like some other series.
