SitcomsOnline Digest: Renewals for Law & Order SVU and More; Evening Shade Complete Series DVD Release Coming Soon

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! It's not a very busy news week, but we're hearing about a record breaking renewal for an NBC favorite, some renewals at Fox, and some summer premiere dates. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB
  • Law & Order: SVU has been renewed for a record breaking 21st season, making it the longest running drama in TV history. (Variety)
  • Meanwhile, Fox has renewed 9-1-1 and The Resident. (Hollywood Reporter)
  • Fox has set premiere dates for their summer programming. (Deadline)
  • Lori Loughlin's Fuller House costars decided to use The Kids Choice Awards to show their support for her. (Buzzfeed
  • Family Guy is 20 years old, and TBS is prepared to celebrate that anniversary. (SitcomsOnline)

HOME MEDIA HIGHLIGHT
Evening Shade - The Complete Series
  • Take note, as this may potentially be one of the last times we ever see something like this for an older sitcom that was sort of forgotten after it's original run: Evening Shade - The Complete Collection will be released on April 12.

WEEKLY PLANNER (MARCH 30 - APRIL 6)
  • The final season of Veep debuts tomorrow night on HBO, but before that, you can catch a marathon of the previous seasons on HBO2 starting today at 5 PM.
  • The second season of Barry also debuts tomorrow night, and a marathon of that will wrap up just before the Veep marathon starts.
  • Although it isn't clear why they are doing it two weekends in a row, Decades has a binge of Hunter again this weekend.
  • Saturday Night Live returns with a new episode tonight, featuring Sandra Oh and Tame Impala.
  • For those who have been missing Night Court on Laff, it returns Monday morning with two episodes every weekday at 9 AM, although it seems Grounded for Life is now gone.
  • The second season of The Last OG debuts Tuesday on TBS.
