Caffeine – August 14th Edition

Happy Sunday! The theme of this week is definitely “remake”. But first, some confusing/sad news: Last week we told you that Eureka had been renewed for Season Six. This week … cancelled. No season six after all. And now they’re adding one extra episode to the upcoming Season Five, I guess to wrap things up.

Season Six of Psych will premiere on October 12!

USA announced that the already-announced fifth season of In Plain Sight will be its last. It will have eight episodes to wrap things up.

Renewed! Suits, True Blood, Warehouse 13, Leverage.

Cancelled: The Hard Times of RJ Berger.

Modern Family fans! Meet your new Lily.

Everyone and their brother announced remakes and adaptations in development this week. Get ready for: Bewitched, The Nanny Diaries, Frankenstein, The Lincoln Lawyer, The Client List, The Munsters.

Other new shows in the pipeline: a FearNet comedy, Holliston; a Kevin Bacon comedy vehicle; summer camp musical comedy Acting Out; a Bruckheimer procedural drama about a mother/state trooper; a Las Vegas 1960s sheriff/mob/etc. thing from the writer of Goodfellas; a procedural about someone with the serial killer gene (um?) from Shawn Ryan; a Roseanne Barr sitcom; something from Alan Ball involving an ex-con, martial arts, a murdered sheriff, and Amish Country that I do not understand at all.

No longer in the pipeline: Family Album.

Tim DeKay will direct an episode of White Collar.
