Paramount+ School Spirits Season 2 Underway; Prime Video Gets Betty la Fea Continuation

School Spirits

Paramount+ announced that production is officially underway for season two of its hit original drama series School Spirits. Coming off a major cliffhanger, the new season will premiere this fall exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., Canada, Australia, the UK, Latin America, Brazil, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Japan. Paramount+ also announced that all series regulars will return for season two and that new recurring guest stars have been added to the cast. School Spirits stars Peyton List as Maddie Nears, Kristian Ventura as Simon Elroy, Spencer MacPherson as Xavier Baxter, Kiara Pichardo as Nicole Herrera, Sarah Yarkin as Rhonda, Nick Pugliese as Charley, Rainbow Wedell as Claire Zomer, Josh Zuckerman, who is now a series regular, as Mr. Martin and Milo Manheim as Wally Clark.

Newcomers this season will include recurring guest stars Jess Gabor (Shameless, Confessional) as Janet Hamilton, Zack Calderon (The Wilds, Afterparty) as Diego Herrera, Miles Elliot (Cooties, The Amazing Spider-Man) as Yuri and Cihang Ma (Presto! School of Magic, Departure) as Quinn. Maria Dizzia, who plays Maddie’s mom, Sandra Nears, will also return as a recurring guest star along with Patrick Gilmore as Mr. Anderson and Ian Tracey as Sheriff Baxter. Picking up from the shocking season one finale, season two finds Maddie Nears (List) still stuck in the afterlife, but now with the knowledge of what happened to her. She must unite her friends in the spectral and living worlds in order to reclaim her stolen life.


Betty la Fea, The Story Continues

Prime Video released the official trailer for Betty la Fea, The Story Continues, the sequel to the Colombian telenovela that inspired ABC's Ugly Betty starring America Ferrera, which will premiere on Friday, July 19 in more than 240 countries. Featuring the on-screen duo from the original series, Ana María Orozco and Jorge Enrique Abello will reprise their roles along with Julián Arango, Natalia Ramírez, Lorna Cepeda, Julio Cesar Herrera, Luces Velásquez, Marcela Posada, Mario Duarte, Sebastián Osorio, Ricardo Vélez, Alberto León Jaramillo, Rodrigo Candamil, Juanita Molina, Zharick León, and Estefania Gómez.

In the new series, a death in Ecomoda forces Betty to reconnect with her former coworkers, as well as with Armando, whom she is still married to but separated. She also reunites with her daughter, Mila, who has been studying fashion in New York and returns with the desire to work in Hugo's workshop. Betty will have to rebuild her relationship with her daughter, while making important decisions that will impact her career, and decide whether to reconcile with Armando, who will do everything to win her back. The series and its storyline are a celebration of female empowerment. When audiences were first introduced to the character of Betty 25 years ago, the definition and perception of beauty was put into question. During its evolution and myriad of adaptations, ‘Betty’ went on to represent the underdog who dared to dream and defy the standards of beauty. The new series highlights the themes that were introduced two decades ago, but with a modern-day twist, including the double-edged sword of ambition, the tumultuous dynamics of relationships, and fighting against adversity. The new ‘Betty’ is back to teach audiences real life-lessons that will entertain and inspire more than ever before.

 Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we are hearing of the renewal of a Netflix series, new Beavis and Butt-Head episodes (including a third season that will debut on Comedy Central), and more. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • It may just be a last ditch effort to save cable, but when the third season of Beavis and Butt-Head debuts next year, it'll first debut on Comedy Central instead of Paramount+ (and also, the second season will debut on Comedy Central next month as well). (Variety)
  • Christina Applegate is opening up on what life is like living with multiple sclerosis, and not surprisingly, it isn't pleasant. (Hollywood Reporter)
  • Dick Van Dyke has become the oldest person to win a Daytime Emmy, for his work on Days of Our Lives. (Variety)

Apple TV+ Renews Palm Royale for Season 2; Peacock Orders Season 4 for Kevin Hart Talker

Palm Royale

Apple renews hit, star-studded comedy sensation Palm Royale for season two. Palm Royale is executive produced by Academy Award winner Laura Dern, Academy and Emmy Award nominee Kristen Wiig and creator Abe Sylvia with an all-star cast led by Wiig and including Dern, Ricky Martin, Josh Lucas and Leslie Bibb, with Allison Janney and extra special guest stars Bruce Dern and Carol Burnett. Grab a grasshopper and get ready to step back into glamorous Palm Beach high society! On the heels of its critically acclaimed season one finale, Apple TV+ announced a season two renewal for its global hit comedy, Palm Royale. Since its global debut this March, Palm Royale has been hailed as "a dishy delight," "wildly outrageous and amusing," "a feast of retro stylings and historical events" and an "edge-of-your-seat guessing game you won't want to stop watching." Additionally, Wiig was just recognized for her work in the series with a nomination from the first-ever Gotham TV Awards. Set in high society Palm Beach in the powder keg year of 1969, Palm Royale is a true underdog story that follows Maxine Simmons (Wiig) as she endeavors to break into Palm Beach high society. As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, Palm Royale asks the same question that still baffles us today: "How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to get what someone else has?" Palm Royale is a testament to every outsider fighting for their chance to truly belong.

Bounce TV Comedy Mind Your Business Airing Now; Onyx Collective's Queenie Debuts Friday

Mind Your Business

Bounce TV original series Mind Your Business starring ensemble cast, Columbus Short (Scandal, Stomp the Yard), Drew Sidora (The Real Housewives of Atlanta, That's So Raven), Rolonda Watts (Rolonda), and singer/radio host Bebe Winans is streaming now on Bounce TV, 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT. The 10-episode first-season series will run throughout the summer, leading into the return of the hit Bounce series Johnson, which will start airing new episodes on Saturday, Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT. The half-hour situation comedy tells the story of The Williams family, which is in the business of celebrating some of life's most significant occasions with its event and party space in Chicago. However, when it comes to their family affairs, there is a bigger need for referees than DJs.

Like many small businesses, the once-prospering 30s-and-older lounge, Lucille's, owned by Lucille Williams (Played by Watts) took a considerable pandemic hit, forcing her to close. Lucille's baby brother, Henry (Winans), couldn't stand by and let Lucille's Place slip away, so he recruited his fraternal twins, Aaliyah (Sidora) and Alfonso (Short), to keep the business in the family. A safe space for planning and hosting events was born with Aaliyah's creative sensibilities and Alfonso's business mind. Alfonso's wife, Kimberly, and son, Alfonso Jr. (A.J.), join the event planning team. Even Aaliyah has one of their chosen family members, Mia, join the team; she is a jack of all trades – so she thinks. Although the new-and-improved Lucille’s brings everyone together, their affairs end up causing a mess bigger than a college frat party. Mind Your Business also features Caryn Ward Ross (Fame, Monogamy, Patterns of Attraction), Brely Evans (Ambitions, Being Mary Jane, The Man in 3B), Bryce Xavier (A Bennett Song Holiday, Stay Tuned: The Movie, Total Eclipse), and Chloe Elise Ellis (Borrasca, Footprints, Three Stories Up). Mind Your Business is produced by Harvest Studios and executive produced by Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show).

Max Renews Hacks for Season 4; Prime Video Orders Kevin from Aubrey Plaza

Hacks

Max has renewed the multi-Emmy® Award-winning comedy series Hacks for a fourth season. The series' first two seasons received many accolades including awards from Golden Globes, AFI, Peabody, Critics Choice, DGA, SAG®, WGA and GLAAD. Season three premiered to critical acclaim on May 2 and the season finale is now streaming on Max. Season three begins with Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) riding high off the success of her standup special while Ava (Hannah Einbinder) pursues new opportunities back in Los Angeles.

The release of Hacks episodes 307 and 308 marked a new daily high for the series' overall viewership. Time writes “creators Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, and Jen Statsky have crafted Hacks' best season yet” and Roger Ebert notes “the excellent writing invigorates the cast, leading Emmy winner Jean Smart to her best performance on this series (and arguably anywhere).” The Ringer calls Hacks “the best comedy on TV” and USA Today adds it's “a smart, hollering good time of comedy about comedy.” Slate says “[Einbinder’s] never been funnier” and TheWrap agrees, effusing “This isn’t just Einbinder’s best season, it’s arguably her funniest.” IndieWire commends “Aniello’s quietly rich direction [which] drops a few new stunners.” Roger Ebert praises “standout” Paul W. Downs who “nails his biggest arc to date.” Uproxx hails “audience favorites Paul W. Downs and Megan Stalter'' and “Emmy®-nominee Carl Clemons-Hopkins [who] quietly steals every scene he’s in.” Entertainment Weekly writes the show has “flawless guest casting.”

Hacks season three stars Emmy®, SAG Award, and Critics Choice Award winner Jean Smart and Emmy®, SAG Award, and Critics Choice Award nominee Hannah Einbinder alongside Paul W. Downs, Megan Stalter, Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Kaitlin Olson, Jane Adams, J. Smith-Cameron, Helen Hunt, Christina Hendricks, Christopher McDonald, Christopher Lloyd, Tony Goldwyn, Mark Indelicato, Rose Abdoo, and Lorenza Izzo.

Hacks is created and showrun by Emmy® Award winners Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello and Jen Statsky. It is executive produced by Downs and Aniello via their Paulilu banner, Statsky via First Thought Productions, as well as Emmy® Award winners Michael Schur via Fremulon, David Miner for 3 Arts Entertainment and Morgan Sackett. The studio is Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.


Aubrey Plaza

Prime Video announced it has ordered Kevin to series. The animated comedy is executive produced and written by Aubrey Plaza and Joe Wengert, the latter also serving as showrunner. Dan Murphy will also executive produce. The series is set to stream exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. Kevin is about a life-long housecat who decides that he doesn't want to live with people anymore. Loosely inspired by a real break-up and the cat caught in the middle, Kevin dares to ask himself, "Is there a world where I don't do the owner thing and am just... single for the rest of my life?" The series is executive produced and written by Aubrey Plaza and Joe Wengert, the latter also serving as showrunner. Dan Murphy will also executive produce. The series is produced by Titmouse, Evil Hag Productions, and Amazon MGM Studios.

Plaza will star in Francis Ford Coppola's Megalopolis which will premiere at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival and Megan Park's Sundance breakout My Old Ass which will be released by Amazon MGM Studios.

Camp Snoopy Premieres June 14 on Apple TV+; Remembering Elizabeth MacRae of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.

Camp Snoopy

Attention campers! Apple TV+ unveiled the trailer for the all-new, highly anticipated summer Peanuts series Camp Snoopy, premiering on Friday, June 14.

After discovering their troop is in danger of disbanding, Snoopy and the Beagle Scouts set off to immerse themselves in nature and the Great Outdoors to earn their badges, with the Beagle Scout Manual as their guide. Meanwhile, Charlie Brown and friends enjoy their summer at Camp Spring Lake, crossing paths with Snoopy as they experience hiking, swimming, sitting around campfires and everything summer camp and the outdoors have to offer.

Produced for Apple TV+ by Peanuts and WildBrain, the new series is based on the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz and is directed by Rob Boutilier (The Snoopy Show, Snoopy in Space). Executive producers are Craig Schulz, Paige Braddock, Boutilier, Josh Scherba, Stephanie Betts and Logan McPherson.




Elizabeth MacRae

Actress Elizabeth MacRae, who had a recurring role as Lou-Ann Poovie on Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., has died. She died on May 27 in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Ms. MacRae was 88.

Jim Nabors and Elizabeth MacRae

MacRae had a recurring role as Lou-Ann Poovie in 15 episodes of the CBS sitcom Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. from 1966 to 1969. Lou-Ann Poovie is Gomer's (Jim Nabors) girlfriend. She debuts in the third season episode "Love's Old Sweet Song" as a singer for a nightclub, but leaves the job at Gomer's urging to return home to Turtle Creek, North Carolina, and marry her beau Monroe Efford. She was hired to play a very lousy singer for just one episode, cast because she was indeed a bad singer, and because of her true bred southern accent. The characters – and MacRae and Nabors – got along so well onscreen, they decided to make her more or less his permanent girlfriend.

Jack Dodson and Elizabeth MacRae- The Andy Griffith Show

Some of her sitcom guest appearances included Harrigan and Son, I Dream of Jeannie, The Andy Griffith Show and Rhoda.

She was cast multiple times on the long-running Gunsmoke, appearing once in the role of Fanny in the 1962 episode "Half-Straight" and then, between 1962 and 1965, appearing four times as April, the girlfriend of Festus Haggen (Ken Curtis), one of the series' main characters.

Some of her other television guest appearances included Naked City, Maverick, The Asphalt Jungle, Surfside 6 (3 episodes), 77 Sunset Strip, Dr. Kildare, The Untouchables, Sam Benedict, Stoney Burke, Death Valley Days, Burke's Law, Route 66 (4 episodes), Rawhide, The Fugitive, The Virginian, Bonanza, Judd for the Defense, Mannix, Petrocelli, Kojak (2 episodes) and Barnaby Jones.

MacRae's soap opera credits included General Hospital, Another World, Days of Our Lives, Guiding Light and Search for Tomorrow.

She starred as Meredith in Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation (1974). Her other film credits included Love in a Goldfish Bowl (1961), Everything's Ducky (1961), The Wild Westerners (1962), Wild Is My Love (1963), For Love or Money (1963), The Incredible Mr. Lumpet (1964) (as the voice of Ladyfish) and Alien Zone (1978). Her final credit was as a news reporter in Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! (1989).

Ms. MacRae was funny and memorable as Lou-Ann Poovie. She performed in dozens of television series and in nine feature films over her career that spanned 25 years. We thank her for her work on Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. and other series. She will be deeply missed.

Albert S. Ruddy

Film and television producer Albert S. Ruddy, who co-created Hogan's Heroes, has died. He died after a brief illness at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on May 25. Mr. Ruddy was 94.

Ruddy and Bernard Fein created the 1965-1971 CBS sitcom Hogan's Heroes. The series is set in a prisoner-of-war (POW) camp in Nazi Germany during World War II, which concerns a group of Allied prisoners who use the POW camp as an operations base for sabotage and espionage purposes directed against Nazi Germany. It was a critical and commercial success and ran for six seasons and 168 episodes.

In 1976, he produced a western made-for-TV movie called The Macahans, which was subsequently developed into the 1976-1979 ABC western series How the West Was Won. Ruddy, Leslie Greif, Paul Haggis and Christopher Canaan created the 1993-2001 CBS action crime series Walker, Texas Ranger. He was the executive producer for three episodes in 1993. He was also credited on the 2021-2024 The CW prequel series Walker.

He produced The Godfather (1972) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), both of which won him the Academy Award for Best Picture. In the 2022 Paramount+ biographical drama miniseries The Offer, which dramatizes the making of The Godfather and is executive produced by Ruddy, he is played by Miles Teller.

Mr. Ruddy was developing a Hogan's Heroes sequel series in 2019. It will be interesting to see if it ever happens. We thank him for creating the classic Hogan's Heroes. He will be greatly missed.

Darryl Hickman

We also remember actor, screenwriter, television executive, and acting coach Darryl Hickman. He appeared on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, The Nanny and other sitcoms. He died on May 22 in Montecito, California. Mr. Hickman was 92.

Darryl Hickman and Dwayne Hickman

Hickman played Davey Gillis in three episodes of the first season (1959-1960) of the CBS sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Davey Gillis is Dobie's (Dwayne Hickman) older brother, a college student no more responsible and no less girl-crazy than Dobie. Davey was written out of the series after season one and Dobie is regarded as an only child thereafter.

Some of his other sitcom guest appearances included Love, American Style (1970), Maude and All in the Family. He appeared as various characters in four episodes of The Nanny from 1997 to 1999.

Hickman starred as Ben Canfield on the short-lived 1961 NBC Civil War drama The Americans. Some of his other television guest appearances included The Lone Ranger (2 episodes), The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, Perry Mason, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Wanted: Dead or Alive, Gunsmoke (2 episodes), Rawhide (2 episodes), The Untouchables (2 episodes), Dr. Kildare and Baywatch. He wrote three episodes of The Loretta Young Show in 1961 and an episode of Hawaiian Eye in 1961.

Some of his voice credits included Space Stars, Pac-Man, The Biskitts, Pole Position, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible.

He appeared in films such as The Grapes of Wrath (1940), Leave Her to Heaven (1945) and Fighting Father Dunne (1948).

Mr. Hickman started his career as a child actor in the Golden Age of Hollywood and appeared in numerous television series as an adult. He was the older brother of Dwayne Hickman who died in 2022. We thank him for work on television and in films. He will be sorely missed.
