It's pretty much ABC day across the television dial today.
The network unveiled its new fall schedule this morning and then President Paul Lee jumped on a conference call with reporters soon afterward to provide a few details regarding a few established hits.
Among the most notable tidbits:
- Stana Katic has signed a one-year contract and will star on Castle Season 8.
- American Crime Season 2 will feature "a completely different scenario and a completely different crime, even placed in a different part of America," although: "Some of these iconic actors from season 1 of American Crime are going to come back and play different roles.”
- As for the future of Grey's Anatomy and Castle, both of which are returning for another year? Look for them to return for another year after that as well... and then another... and another.
“[It’s] not the final season of either,” Lee said “And I would like to see them run for many, many years to come. They’re both powerful, vibrant brands with incredibly passionate audiences."
That's for sure!
