Also cut by ABC was “Resurrection,” the series that starred “House M.D.” alum Omar Epps as one of several dead - returned to life - characters of a small Missouri town. The show survived two seasons but has met its demise and will not see a third.
Good news that comes as no real surprise is the renewal of “Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and the Nathan Fillion hit “Castle.”
Other ABC SF genre shows to see another breath of life this fall are “Once Upon A Time,” and “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” The Marvels series featuring the followup to the life of Agent Peggy Carter was on the fence but it’s good to see the execs made the correct decision to renew it for a sophomore outing.
Some other great news from ABC is the return of those zany Muppets to network television.
In a previous article I had stated that a new show under consideration over at the Fox Network was riding the fence rail but now I am able to report that “Frankenstein Code,” a tale of a corrupt police officer that is given the chance to redeem himself by being given a second chance at life when brought back from the dead. Loosely based on the iconic Mary Shelley novel “Frankenstein,” the show will be headlined by actor Rob Kazinsky (True Blood, Pacific Rim) and supported with Dilshad Vadsaria (Revenge, Murder in the First), Tim DeKay (White Collar), Ciara Bravo (Jinxed) and Adhir Kalyan (Rules of Engagement).
