Executive producers and cast from the recently picked-up to series “Party of Five” attended a panel at today’s Freeform Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour session, giving a first look at the new series.
From Sony Pictures Television, the reboot will follow the five Acosta children (fka Buendias) as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported back to Mexico. The series stars Brandon Larracuente, Emily Tosta, Niko Guardado and Elle Paris Legaspi. The new iteration of “Party of Five” is created by Keyser and Lippman, who also serve as executive producers and writers. Rodrigo Garcia also serves as executive producer and directed the pilot. Michal Zebede serves as co-executive producer and writer.
“‘Party of Five’ embodies the heart and soul of what it means to be a family in the most trying of times. We’re so lucky that Freeform gets to be the home for this reimagined story, as we continue to represent the resilience of young adults and the importance of fighting for your voice in times of doubt,” said Tom Ascheim, president, Freeform. “We are thrilled to be able to share the groundbreaking storytelling from Amy and Chris with a new audience, and are excited for our viewers to discover the beauty of this series.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring ‘Party of Five’ to another generation of fans. Amy, Chris and Michal’s distinct voice makes this series incredibly relatable and authentic. We are truly proud to be part of this journey,” said Jeff Frost, president, Sony Pictures Television and co-presidents Chris Parnell and Jason Clodfelter.
Fun casting for IG-88 in The Mandalorian
The upcoming live-action “Star Wars” series set to premiere on Disney Plus
“Thor Ragnarok” helmer Taika Waititi recently shot an episode of Disney Plus’s “The Mandalorian” – the live-action “Star Wars” TV series that will feature, among others, fan-fave Boba Fett – and now it’s being revealed he’s also playing a character in it.
Showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) has posted a behind-the-scenes pic on Instagram of the beloved filmmaker recording his voice for the part of bounty hunter IG-88. The droid character is best known for his appearance in “The Empire Strikes Back” but he didn’t speak in his brief moments on screen.
Waititi, you may recall, also voiced a part in “Thor Ragnarok” – that of amiable Kiwi rock-guy Korg.
“The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Supernatural comes to an end : Season 15 is it!
The CW series will conclude later this year
“Supernatural” will end it’s record-breaking run with the upcoming 15th season, stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins announced today on Insta.
“Well, it’s official. One more round for the Winchester brothers,” Ackles wrote in the caption. “Though nothing ever really ends in ‘Supernatural’… does it?”
Executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb also confirmed the end of the long-running CW drama.
“Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera,” the duo wrote in a statement published by THR. “For us it has been an experience of a lifetime.”
“The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible,” Singer and Dabb continued. “We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the sendoff they deserve.”
“Supernatural”, which first aired on The WB in 2005, is the long-running sci-fi/genre series in American broadcast television history.
The CW has attempted to launch a couple of “Supernatural” spin-offs over the years but CW president Mark Pedowitz has since said he’s given up on that idea, convinced the spin-offs never came together because they’re lacking the magical ingredient : Ackles and Padalecki.
The fifteenth episode of the series airs later this year.
The CW are now looking to a wave of new shows to help fill the void left by “Supernatural” and “Jane the Virgin”, which is also concluding, with punters sugegsting the new “Lost Boys” TV series, a “Nancy Drew” reboot and “Batwoman” starring Ruby Rose will be the net’s next-big-things.
#SPNFamily please remember: shows end. But family is forever. That never changes & that's what you've created here. All my love & thanks to the cast & crew & most of all you, the family. #spn @cw_spn@jarpad @JensenAckles @mishacollins @andrewdabb @serathegamble @ben_edlund https://t.co/LlExnMCDLD

Get excited! The Conners back for Season 2!
John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and the rest of the cast carve out deals
ABC has announced today that they’ve commissioned a second season of “The Conners”.
Ranking as television’s No. 1 new comedy this season in Total Viewers (9.5 million) and Adults 18-49 (2.2/10), the “Roseanne” spin-off led Tuesday’s 8:00 p.m. half-hour in Adults 18-49 by 16% over its nearest competitor. During its first season, “The Conners” improved its time period by 33% in Total Viewers and by 22% in Adults 18-49, posting 5-year highs for ABC in the half-hour.
In “The Conners,” this iconic family grapples with parenthood, divorce, dating, aging and financial pressures in working-class America. Through it all – the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails. The spinoff has also received critical acclaim with The Daily Beast calling it “warm, hilarious and fun,” and The New York Times declaring the new sitcom “special, deserving of a prime-time slot on television every week.”
The series stars John Goodman as Dan Conner, Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris, Sara Gilbert as Darlene Conner, Lecy Goranson as Becky Conner-Healy and Ames McNamara as Mark Conner-Healy. Additional cast to be announced at a later date.
