All American: Homecoming’s third season will debut on July 8th. However, today, it was announced that this season will be the show’s last.

“I’m devastated to learn that All American: Homecoming will not be moving forward with more episodes and that this new season premiering in July will be our final one,” said the show’s EP Nkechi Okoro Carroll in a statement. “However, I am so very grateful to have worked with this incredible cast and crew, led by Geffri Maya, to bring the authentic HBCU experience to your screens for the last three seasons. We made this show for the culture and thank our loyal audience and fans for taking this ride with us. We made this show so that our community, our kids (and their dreams), could be seen and celebrated every week and we are proud to say we accomplished that mission — especially with this exciting final season which we can’t wait to show you all. So with a heavy but proud heart, I give one final shoutout to our favorite Bringston Lions!”

With this news, that means that All American is the show still standing from pre-Nexstar days.

All American picked up for a 7th season
June 3rd, 2024 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

The CW will have a scripted show from The CW on its air in 2025.

Nexstar bought The CW and, in a little over a year, canceled almost all of the shows before they acquired the network.

It looked like we were not going to be left with any shows from the old regime, but today, they picked up All American for a 12-episode 7th season to air in 2025.

“A strong Fall is going to lead into an even stronger 2025 on The CW as new seasons of ALL AMERICAN, PENN & TELLER: FOOL US and THE CHOSEN join NASCAR Xfinity Series, WWE NXT, ACC football & basketball, Pac-12 football, ‘Wild Cards,’ ‘Superman & Lois,’ ‘The Librarians,’ ‘Inside the NFL,’ ‘Sullivan’s Crossing’ and much more,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network. “Through six seasons, ALL AMERICAN remains a top-performer for The CW as the network’s most-watched series across all linear and digital platforms. PENN & TELLER: FOOL US continues to be appointment television for families over a decade into its run. And we are thrilled to continue our partnership with THE CHOSEN and bring the latest season of this groundbreaking drama exclusively to broadcast audiences across the country.”

Penn & Teller, another CW show, will be back for season 11.

Wild Cards might be about a scam artist who goes legit and helps solve crimes with a cop, but the show was not scamming anyone by how enjoyable it is. And that is why it is the #1 show on the network. Because of that, The CW picked up the police procedural for a second season today!

“We are thrilled to order a second season of The CW’s breakout series WILD CARDS,” said Liz Wise Lyall, Head of Scripted Programming, The CW Network. “WILD CARDS has clearly captured the imagination of our viewers thanks to exhilarating storytelling and the crackling chemistry between Vanessa [Morgan] and Giacomo [Gianniotti]. We are confident WILD CARDS is the kind of smart and sexy blue-sky drama that could continually build its audience for years.”

Wild Cards’ new season will debut in 2025.

The CW announces its 2024-2025 schedule
May 16th, 2024 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

The CW announced what their Fall schedule is going to look like, and only one show is from the old garb. That series is Superman & Lois, which is wrapping up its run.

Along with the only show left from their DC Universe Days, the Canadian drama Sullivan’s Crossing is the only scripted show to return. Both series will be joined by The Librarians spinoff and Sophia Turner’s Joan.

It isn’t all scripted. We are getting two game shows: sports and Whose Line Is It Anyways.

The CW has yet to make a final decision on the All-American franchise, Walker, and the Canadian shows Family Law, Wild Cards, Children Ruin Everything, Sight Unseen, and Son of Critch.

Sight Unseen is the must see show of the season
April 3rd, 2024 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

The CW has a new series tonight at 9p, and Sight Unseen is the best new show of the season.

Tess Avery(Dolly Lewis) is a detective whose life is about to change forever. She is going blind. And it is happening quickly.

Her childhood friend, Matt(Jarod Joseph), tells her about Eyes Up. It is a service that helps the visually impaired see by telling them what is in front of them.

Tess winds up calling, and Sunny(Agam Darshi), who is 3,000 miles away, winds up picking up the call. Sunny is an Agoraphobic, and she sees the world through her clients’ eyes.

Sunny keeps Tess’ phone number and offers to help her with cases and more. She does this because her life is uneventful because she never leaves the house, and this is her way of getting out. Reluctantly, Tess agrees to her offer.

And now the two of them are working together to solve crimes. It is unorthodox, but it is working.

They can’t do it alone, so Tess’ old partner, Jake (Daniel Gillies), is helping them out because it is helping him and the victims.

I have seen three episodes, and I am hooked. But then again, I am biased. I have a friend who went blind a few years ago, and I act as her Sunny. So, I know of services like Eyes Up because of my friend.

I wasn’t even 12 minutes into the show before I called my friend and told her to watch because I knew she would love it.

The stuff Tess is going through is realistic. And the actress is believable in the role.

While her blindness is what attracted me to the show, the cases and the storyline are what is keeping me watching.

I think Canadian TV does a better job with police procedurals than us Yanks, and Sight Unseen is no different. They are not as violent and predictable.

This show is educational, entertaining, and enjoyable. I promise you will love it as much as I do. So tune in for something different than everything else on television today.
