‘Whiskey Cavalier': ABC and Warner Bros in Talks to Bring Canceled Series Back
The series finale for “Whiskey Cavalier” may end up being the season finale. ABC and the show’s producer, Warner Bros., are in talks to bring the series back, 11 days after ABC canceled the drama after one season.

An individual with knowledge of the situation at ABC told TheWrap that the network is considering bringing the Scott Foley-led series back for a second season and that conversations are ongoing. A decision is expected to come quickly, possibly by the end of this week. Warner Bros. declined to comment.

When the show was canceled earlier this month, Warner Bros. was planning to shop the series elsewhere.

Along with Foley, the drama starred “Walking Dead” alum Lauren Cohan, Ana Ortiz, Tyler James Williams and Vir Das. David Hemingson created and wrote

Adam Levine's Fellow Voice Coaches Weigh In on His Shocking Departure: 'Gonna Miss Working With That Idiot'
Fans of The Voice are still processing the news of Adam Levine’s departure after 16 seasons — and they’re not alone. Levine’s fellow coaches, who learned of his exit just one day ahead of this morning’s big announcement, are taking to social media to salute the Voice veteran.

The best response, unsurprisingly, comes from Levine’s better half Blake Shelton. “Having a hard time wrapping my head around @adamlevine not being at [The Voice] anymore,” the country star tweeted. “After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet.

Renee Zellweger and Mike Kelley on Deconstructing Fate and Consequences in ‘What/If’

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “What/If,” streaming now on Netflix.

Writer and executive producer Mike Kelley’s latest piece of dramatic storytelling is a limited series morality tale that starts with a high-powered, wealthy woman named Anne Montgomery (Renee Zellweger) offering Lisa, a young woman with a startup (Jane Levy), the investment she needs — if she gives her one night with her husband Sean (Blake Jenner). What goes on during that evening will be protected by a non-disclosure agreement, and if he breaks the terms and shares the details, Anne will take control of the company.

What/If Creator Reveals the Inspiration Behind Renee Zellweger's Netflix Villain

Summer may not technically start for another month, but Netflix has already given us our first sudsy beach “read” in What/If, a 10-episode social thriller from the mind of Revenge creator Mike Kelley. The twisted series also marks Renee Zellweger‘s major television debut, as she steps into the role of vindictive seductress Anne Montgomery.

“I’ve been thinking about this character for a long time,” Kelley tells TVLine. “She was born out of my slightly unhealthy obsession with all things Mrs. Robinson. That character is so powerful and witty and compelling, but also tragic. The Graduate was my first real movie obsession,

Kanye West Slams Liberals for ‘Bullying’ Trump Supporters in David Letterman Interview

The Daily Beast today published a preview of David Letterman’s interview with Kanye West — which addresses music, fashion, West’s late mother and of course his much-criticized support of President Trump — on his Netflix show, which begins streaming next Friday, May 31. The article praises the hour-long session as “not only one of the best interviews Letterman has ever conducted, it’s also one of the most coherent and engaging interviews Kanye has ever given, even if it does go off the rails at times.” That may be the case, although there is scant evidence of it in the excerpts published today.

‘Killing Eve’ Star Edward Bluemel Demystifies ‘Passionate Man-spreader’ Hugo and His Link to Eve

‘Killing Eve’ Star Edward Bluemel Demystifies ‘Passionate Man-spreader’ Hugo and His Link to Eve
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Killing Eve” Season 2, Episode 7, “Wide Awake.”]

On “Killing Eve,” Edward Bluemel’s character Hugo might be a new member of the MI6 task force, but he’s already created an intimate bond with agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh). While conducting surveillance of assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer), who’s working undercover for them in Rome using a hidden microphone, Eve and Hugo sleep together. It’s only in the morning that he realizes he unknowingly had a threesome since Villanelle’s voice was on the other end of the earpiece that Eve was wearing.

Although this is just another disturbing sign of how Eve has begun to lose control and good judgment in the face of temptation, Hugo doesn’t seem to mind. Bluemel – who’s also been recently seen as Marcus on “A Discovery of Witches” and Sean in “Sex Education” – had to delve into his character’s psychology to

Ratings: ABC's Farrah Fawcett Special Tops Night, Elementary Returns Steady

With NBC’s Red Nose Day programming proving to be less bulbous than usual, ABC News’ This Is Farrah Fawcett special led the first night of the off-season in total viewers (delivering 5.8 million) while tying a Young Sheldon rerun on CBS for Thursday’s demo win (both scoring a 0.7).

NBC’s Red Nose Day lineup averaged 2.2 mil and a 0.4, down sharply from last year (3 mil/0.7).

Over on CBS, the terminal Life in Pieces (4.5 mil/0.6) slipped to series lows leading out of reruns, while Elementary (4.1 mil/0.5) opened its final season on par with its previous average (3.8 mil/0.5) and down just a

On ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Gentleman Jack,’ Gemma Whelan Plays Two of HBO’s Best Women

On ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Gentleman Jack,’ Gemma Whelan Plays Two of HBO’s Best Women
Just as “Game of Thrones” came to an end, HBO announced that it has renewed “Gentleman Jack” for a second season. That’s great news for fans of British actress Gemma Whelan, who essentially amounts to a Venn diagram of where the two shows’ audiences overlap.

On “GoT” Whelan built a devoted following as Yara Greyjoy, Queen of the Iron Islands and sister to Theon (Alfie Allen). Her character in “Gentleman Jack” is a far cry from the bloodthirsty lothario she plays on “Thrones,” however; as conservative Marian she antagonizes her casanova sister, the swaggering butch Anne Lister (Suranne Jones). Though Whelan herself is straight, she has endeared herself to Lgbtq audiences with one gay and one gay-adjacent role; it is a testament to her versatility as an actress that her two biggest TV roles could not be more different.

A co-production between HBO and the BBC, “Gentleman Jack” has

Levine has been a coach on the show since its inception in 2011. He will be replaced next season by Gwen Stefani. “Voice” host Carson Daly announced the switch Friday morning on NBC News’ “Today.”
