Two And A Half Men
From the set of Two and a Half Men, comes a picture that may give a hint to the prognosis of Chalie Harper. In the first picture from the set we see Holland Taylor-who plays Charlies mother, dressed all in black. Has she just attended a funeral? Reports also have a lot of tension on the set as the crew adjust to Kutcher, with some claiming he is a diva, while others feel very loyal to Sheen. Two and a Half Men airs on Channel Nine – no word on if they will “fast track” the new season that premieres on September 19 in the USA.
Wilfred has been renewed for a second season in the US, with 13 episodes being ordered. Star Jason Gann said “I’ve been around long enough in this business to know until it’s happening it’s not happening. Once, in Australia, I had two TV shows and a feature film up and they all fell over. I got one show back up, Wilfred, and then the complete ass feel out of my career and I was evicted from my house. It was awful. I went form hero to zero. In November this year, it will be 10 years since I wrote the short film [on which Wilfred is based] with [co-creator] Adam Zwar. Even though we only did 16 episodes in Australia, and already we’ve done 13 here and by the end of next season, this [the U.S.] version will be the Wilfred that is the show. For me, it is the show. It’s incredible that the character has stuck around that long.”
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia has been picked up for two more seasons as well. Wilfred airs on Eleven at 9.30pm on Tuesdays and It’s always Sunny…. airs on the comedy channel at 10pm on Wednesday nights.
House will start season 8 an entire year after the end of last season. “The advantage of going forward a year is that everything’s changed, and changed dramatically. ”series creator David Shore said.
We will see House is in prison, serving a sentence for inflicting armageddon on Cuddy’s house; there’s a new Dean of Medicine, and he/she is someone viewers know well; and House’s diagnostics team has undergone a facelift.
The big leap also gives House time to adjust to life after Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein – who is headed to The Mentalist). “I think it’s a smart idea [in light of the fact that] Lisa left the show,” noted Aussie co-star Jesse Spencer. “I think it was kind of necessary to do that. If we picked up right where we left off and Cuddy wasn’t there it [would be strange].”
House airs on Channel Ten and will be back in 2012, while The Mentalist airs on Channel Nine and is also scheduled for a 2012 return.
Joshua Jackson has opened up about the Fringe final that saw his character Peter Bishop flicker out of existence. But now, in the wake of Peter’s season-ending act and its dire ramifications, his connection to Olivia (played by Aussie Anna Torv) “is on an epic scale as well,” Jackson notes. “This guy sacrificed himself for the woman that he loves, which made that relationship more interesting and it launched us into the off-season with this ‘Holy s—t!’ moment.”
“Part of the reason they ended up making the decision to go with that cliff-hanger is because there’s a belief, given how passionate our fans are, that there is a level of trust in us — and we are all keenly aware of not violating that trust,” he shares. “So as much as there was a freak-out and panic, it was done with the hope that everyone understands that we’d never [mess] with our audience, which has been so faithful to us and kept us on the air.
“It was just a case of stealing a page out of [executive producer] J.J. Abrams’ playbook,” he continues, “and keeping people on their toes with anticipation… and then hopefully satisfying their desire.” Fringe airs on GO!
