The CW Boss Wants a New Supernatural Spin-Off, Talks Carrie Diaries Cancellation

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki

The first attempt to spin off The CW's long-running drama Supernatural did not succeed, but network president Mark Pedowitz is game to try, try again.

"The Supernatural spin-off that came in, creatively, did not quite get to where we wanted it to go," Pedowitz told reporters at Television Critics' Association fall previews on Friday. "We have told... read more

Beauty and the Beast Boss on a Close Cancellation, Changing Focus and an Epic Finale Battle

Kristin Kreuk, Jay Ryan

It's no secret that the renewal chances for Beauty and the Beast were slim, so when executive producer Brad Kern sat down to write the Season 2 finale he knew the most important thing was to make a satisfying ending for the loyal fans.

"We designed it as a possible series finale and frankly, we saved up a lot of money to be able to make it big and epic in case it was the end," Kern tells TVGuide.com. "We felt we owed the loyal audience a special ending, but we also put in the elements that would allow us to build off of if it if we were lucky enough to get Season 3."

Mega Buzz: A True Blood Tragedy, Falling Skies' Hybrid and Sleepy's New Monster

I'm sad that this is going to be the final season of True Blood. Do you have anything to make me feel better? — Carrie
Yes, but it may not make you feel better. When the HBO drama returns, the Hep-V-infected vampires that were poised to attack Bon Temps arrive and the bloodbath quickly ensues. Unfortunately, the casualties are not just redshirts. In fact, one character's fate is so jaw-dropping that you'll spend the rest of the episode wondering if what you just watched was a dream. It's not, which clearly means all bets are off in this final season.

Beauty and the Beast's Kristin Kreuk: Catherine and Vincent Are Fighting For Each Other

Jay Ryan, Kristin Kreuk

Just as Beauty and the Beast's Catherine and Vincent got their (short-lived) happy ending, so did the show with a last-minute renewal.

"[Our fans] were so happy and I'm happy for them," Kristin Kreuk tells TVGuide.com. "They're so excited; it's awesome."

When we last saw Catherine (Kreuk) and Vincent (Jay Ryan) in the March midseason finale, they had reunited and everything seemed perfect — until they awoke to cops at their door arresting Vincent for murder. Monday's summer premiere (9/8c, The CW) picks up immediately with Catherine springing into action to not only get Vincent released, but find out who was behind the set-up. Read on for more from the show's star about the upcoming episodes.

Ask Matt: Finales (Castle, Mentalist), Penny Dreadful, Cancellation Fallout

Simon Baker, Robin Tunney

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: Last week, you wrote about how producers "often — too often, to be honest — try to end their seasons with a bang ... in hopes of stimulating interest for when they return several months later." I understand the reasoning, and it definitely worked for me with Person of Interest — it was game-changing and left me very curious to see how it goes, but satisfying. However I had the opposite reaction to Castle, which looked to be heading for a good place to pause with a minor game-changer (Mr. & Mrs. Castle), even got some nice wedding emotion going, and then threw in a ridiculous "dun-dun-dun" moment which had zero emotional impact as no one believes Castle could be dead. Most of these cliffhangers now seem to me like cheap tricks, a shyster trying to "buy" your viewing next fall, while moving the story to a new level seems a legitimate way of keeping interest and far more likely to have a good payoff in terms of the story next year. Anyway, it led me to wonder are there any "cliffhangers" of the past that you remember with pleasure and/or satisfaction, or is it only the game-changers that stand out in your mind? As always, thanks for an interesting column. — Elle
