Fringe [Fox, Fridays, 10/9C] has taken us through some wild and compelling tales of multiple universes and timeframes over its four season run, to date. Now, following the precedent set by Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, Fox has renewed the best science fiction series on television for a fifth and final season – giving its creators the chance to complete the story they’ve been developing since its debut in the fall of 2008.

After the sex, violence and political intrigue of Ancient Rome in Starz’ Spartacus series, it seems odd, yet somehow appropriate to find the same ingredients put to more nuanced use in the network’s Magic City [Fridays, 10/9C] – a series about hotelier Ike Evans and his family and their efforts to bring the magic with a legendarily luxurious hotel, the Miramar Plaza [modeled after the famous/infamous Fontainebleau Hotel].
ABC announced it summer 2112 schedule today and it’s 89% reality-based programming. Of the nine new and returning series, only one is a scripted, fictional series – Rookie Blue [and drama doesn’t get much lighter than that…].
New are Duets, a singing competition for duos – with a twist; Trust Us with Your Life, wherein celebrities reminiscing about their lives – and improv comics performing their takes on those reminiscences; and Final Witness, which will examine one murder each week – from the victims perspective – and will combine interviews with scripted re-enactments.
Besides Rookie Blue, returning series include: Secret Millionaire, Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, Wipeout, Bachelor Pad and The Bachelorette.
