Renewals & Ends For “Man,” MADtv” & “Episodes”

It has been a busy day for TV series in terms of renewal orders. FXX has renewed its Jay Baruchel comedy “Man Seeking Woman” for a third season of ten episodes. The high-concept comedy revolves around Josh (Baruchel) as he goes through the ups and downs of dating. The new episodes will debut in 2017.

Next up, Netflix has ordered a second season of “Degrassi: Next Class” for a July premiere. Ten new episodes will debut worldwide on July 22nd. This follows on from the streaming giant picking up the long-running teen drama just days after it was canceled by MTV in Canada. A twenty-episode first premiered in January.

Then, The CW is reviving the former Fox late-night sketch comedy series “MADtv” which previously ran from 1995-2009 and helped launch the careers of the likes of Ike Barinholtz, Alex Borstein, Orlando Jones and of course – Key & Peele. The eight new episodes will feature new cast members, as well as special appearances from returning cast members who will host the new hourlong installments. No premiere date has yet been set.

The news hasn’t been so good for Showtime’s Matt LeBlanc comedy “Episodes” which will officially end with season five next year. The show will begin production on its final seven episodes next week.

MTV’s “Teen Wolf” is continuing on but one of its stars won’t be. Actress Arden Cho, who has played Kira since season three, announced on Monday that she will not be returning for the series’ upcoming sixth season. The actress has left the door open for a possible return.
