When it was announced last season that the fourth season of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" starring Vincent Rodriguez III was going to be its final season, the horns were heard that Filipino representation in U.S. commercial broadcast primetime television was going to experience a loss. Wondering, but not expecting that this announcement was not going to be the last.
Just this past summer, five TV shows made major surprising moves. The upcoming seventh season of the CW's "The 100" starring Bob Morley, the upcoming sixth season of ABC's "How To Get Away With Murder" starring Conrad Ricamora and the upcoming fourth seasons of both NBC's "The Good Place" starring Manny Jacinto and Amazon Prime's "The Man In The High Castle" starring Joel de la Fuente will all be their final seasons. Netflix abruptly cancelled its two seasoned critically-raved drama, "The OA" starring Brandon Perea. And, while NBC cancelled their two seasoned comedy, "A.P. Bio" starring Sari Arambulo, the show is currently in production for its binge-watching third season to premiere on NBC's new streamer, the Peacock, in January, 2020.
However, on the horizon of the new 2019-2020 TV season starting this Monday night this week, September 23rd are both returning shows and new series premieres! Check your local listings.
