Two of the season’s hottest new shows—How To Get Away with Murder and black-ish—will get full seasons from ABC while STARZ has renewed, Survivor’s Remorse for a second season.
According to IndieWire, ABC has scored major points with the Shonda Rhimes’ drama How To Get Away with Murder starring the überly talented and sexy Viola Davis as attorney Annalise Dewitt. Reportedly, the network has ordered a full season for the show including 15 new episodes. The hilariously new family comedy, black-ish starring Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross and Laurence Fishburne will also get 22 new episodes. Both shows have pulled in record numbers for the network since their September debuts.
The LeBron James inspired dramedy, Survivor’s Remorse is getting a sophomore season on STARZ. The half-hour show featuring Mike Epps, Tichina Arnold, and Teyonah Parris, will have 10 additional episodes from its original 6 episode first season.
As previously reported, Survivor’s Remorse follows Cam Calloway, played by Jessie T. Usher, a basketball phenom who is suddenly thrust into the limelight with a professional basketball team in Atlanta. Along with his cousin, played by RonReaco Lee, the two must confront the challenges of carrying needy family members and their strong ties to the impoverished community that they come from.
Congrats to all three shows!
