Bones has been renewed for an eighth season.

Star Trek actor Ben Cross has landed a role in Alan Ball’s new Cinemax drama, Banshee.

After returning from hiatus with better than normal ratings, Community has held its own against its biggest competition: a new episode of The Big Bang Theory. Perhaps there is reason to hope for a fourth season after all.

Dermot Mulroney will join fellow new addition Molly Shannon in the second season of HBO’s Enlightened.

Erin Way (Private Practice) has booked a recurring role on Alphas second season.
