BBC One have released a new teaser trailer for the Sherlock special, which will be shown on New Year’s Day. The one off special sees the story relocate to Victorian times, in the style of Arthur Conan Doyle’s original stories, and is a stand-alone episode. The new trailer gives us a glimpse of Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Doctor Watson (Martin Freeman) meeting for the first time.
Fox have granted a series order to a new show from Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie). The new comedy, Son of Zorn, will be a hybrid between live action and animation as it tells the story of Zorn, an animated character, as he tries to reconnect with his live-action son and wife, only to discover that a banal suburban life is harder to live than waging war in his mythical homeland. Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses) will voice Zorn.
FX has renewed Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story for a sixth series, handing out an order for thirteen new episodes. The anthology series, currently airing its fifth, Hotel themed series, has continued to pull in audiences, with the premiere drawing in enough viewers to make it the second most popular broadcast on the FX network.NBC has renewed both Chicago Fire and Chicago PD for another year, ordering up a fifth and fourth season, respectively. The Chicago franchise, created by Dick Wolf (Law & Order) has been hugely popular and a third show in the series, Chicago Med, will debut shortly.
NBC also renewed its freshman drama Blindspot for a second season. Created by Martin Gero (Stargate Atlantis), the series follows an amnesiac woman discovered naked in Times Square whose body is covered in mysterious tattoos that are clues to a conspiracy. The second season is expected to consist of twenty-two episodes and will premiere in 2016.
