Caffeine – April 21st Edition

Happy Sunday. First, I’d like to say that our thoughts are with everyone affected by the various tragic events this week, from the Boston bombing to the Texas explosion to the earthquakes and flooding around the world. None of us have been paying much attention to entertainment news this week, so if you want a recap on what you might have missed, here you go:

In light of recent events, NBC has pulled the next episode of Hannibal and will be moving right to episode five. And Castle is swapping the next two episodes because of a bomb-related plotline. The rest of the season of Revolution is pushed back a week. And the Grimm episode scheduled for this week will air next Friday.

Grimm is moving to Tuesdays.

NBC summer premieres: Save Me on May 23rd and Camp on July 10th.

Breaking Bad‘s final half-season will premiere on August 11th. Low Winter Sun will premiere the same night.

Glee has been renewed for two more seasons.

Also renewed: Da Vinci’s Demons

Dexter is officially ending with season eight.

Apparently Microsoft wants to revive Heroes and . . . I don’t even know anymore, you guys.

Krysten Ritter says the unaired episodes of Apt. 23 will be available online on May 17th.
