Caffeine – April 29th Edition

Caffeine – April 29th Edition

Happy Sunday! We’ve got some summer premiere dates and super-exciting Fringe renewal news, but it’s otherwise been a very slow news week. Just take the chance to rest up for upfronts madness!

Premiere dates!

June 3: The Glades, Longmire, Teen Wolf, Drop Dead Diva
June 28: Awkward
(Sources: 1, 2, 3)

Finale swapping: NBC has moved the hour-long Community finale to May 17 (so the regular Community episode will be at 8, 30 Rock at 8:30, then an hour of Community at 9), which means the two-part Awake finale will have an hour on May 17 and an hour on May 24, rather than two hours on May 17.

Renewed: Fringe, The Lying Game

Canceled: Upstairs, Downstairs, Make It or Break It

NBC has pulled Best Friends Forever. The rest of the episodes may or may not air over the summer.

TV Land has added twelve episodes to the second season of Happily Divorced.

Showrunner shake-up! Gossip Girl EP Josh Safran is taking over Smash.

Development news:
Hasn’t Vince Vaughn had a new project every week for at least a month?
Syfy bought Charlaine Harris’s Harper Connelly series. They announced lots of other new projects at their upfront presentation as well.
ABC has picked up Super City.

Pilot Counter Culture is shut down due to injury, at least for now.
