We know, these are three things that really don’t go together, but it’s a quick and dirty way to get this news about TV show renewals out of the way.
First up, FX has renewed “Legion” for a second season. The show hasn’t exactly been a ratings blockbuster, but the reviews have mostly been strong, and it’s the kind of thing that could build an audience through streaming. Not to mention creator Noah Hawley is FX’s golden boy thanks to “Fargo,” and they’ll likely keep doing whatever he wants, until things stop working, but that doesn’t look likely to happen anytime soon.
CBS All Access has given the go-ahead for a second season of “The Good Wife” spinoff “The Good Fight.” The show is currently only available on the streaming service, which has a fairly modest 1.5 million subscribers, but I guess they’re hoping if they built the content, people will come.
Lastly, HBO has given a thumbs up a second season of the Judd Apatow-produced “Crashing.” It’s hardly the buzzworthiest show on the network, but HBO seems to be willing to give it a second go ’round, and I can only imagine the budget barely pays for a single day of catering on “Game Of Thrones,” so not much of a risk to re-up it either.
