Sutter has previously indicated that he’s been aiming for a seven season run of the show and now he’s likely to get it. The fifth season of ‘Anarchy’ kicks off in the Fall. [Source: Digital Spy]

Doctor Who
Filming is set to start this month on the seventh season of “Doctor Who” since its revival with Matt Smith reprising the role. Though they’ve essentially become recurring characters already, Steven Moffat confirmed in a recent blurb for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra that The Doctor will say goodbye to his friends Amy and Rory.

More importantly though “he’s about to say hello to someone very different – the Doctor is going to meet someone very new in the very last place he could ever have expected.” [Source: Blogtor Who]
