Three Quick, Obligatory Television Notes

Three bits of television news arrived yesterday, and none warranted their own stand-alone post, but in our efforts to keep you informed, you should know the following:

The Americans has been picked up for two more seasons. Those will be the final two seasons. For a critically-beloved series that has had meager ratings from the get-go, six seasons is a goddamn blessing. FX keeps waiting on the audience to catch up to one of the best shows on television (as happened with Breaking Bad), and maybe announcing an end date will hasten that. There will be 13 episodes next year, and ten more in the final season.

— In talking about HBO’s new head of programming, Casey Bloys, THR dropped this sentence yesterday:

While juggernaut Game of Thrones and the final season of Damon Lindelof’s Peabody-winning drama The Leftovers shouldn’t require too much of Bloys’ time, other decisions, including the fate of True Detective, now fall to him. (HBO sources suggest a new project from creator Nic Pizzolatto is more likely.)

That single sentence sparked countless posts on the Internet, all to the effect that True Detective is dead, that there won’t be a season three, and that Pizzolatto is moving on to something else. All of those things may be true, but it may also be true that HBO moves ahead with a third season under a different showrunner. There’s a lot of cachet in the brand (season two notwithstanding), and they could slap the True Detective label on basically any serialized, one-season crime series (and truth be told, it will probably be better than season two).

— Finally, for no other reason than three is a good number, Limitless is officially done now. CBS didn’t pick it up, and it could not find a new home on either Netflix or Amazon. I’m sure that someone, somewhere is sad about this.
