Fall TV Preview

TVLine Items: Sexy Nikita Season 3 Teaser, New Y&R Boss Talks Casting Rumors and More!

In just under a month, Nikita will (finally) kick off its Season 3. And based on this just-released promo from The CW, it’s going to be a sexy, stunt-filled ride.

While Owen-less, the first look at the spy thriller’s third cycle (launching Oct. 19) is packed with all sorts of spoilery goodies, including a handful of ‘Mikita’ hookups, a glimpse at just how tense things will get between Nikki and her new “boss” Ryan and more action-packed scenes than the series has ever attempted.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

Incoming Young and the Restless head writer Josh Griffith has spoken to TV Guide Magazine about the recent wave of firings and hirings on the CBS soap, and here are the key takeaways:

– Genie Francis (who plays Genevieve), Debbi Morgan (Harmony), Marcy Rylan (Abbie) and Jennifer Landon (Heather) are definitely out, as are Lindsay Bushman (Summer) and Kevin Schmidt (Noah). Replacing the ousted teens are Hollywood Heights’ Hunter Haley King and Robert Adamson.
– Christel Khalil (Lily) “worked out” her contract issues and is staying with Y&R.
– Billy Miller’s decision to leave the role of Billy is not yet “100 percent.”

• Eureka‘s Ed Quinn will guest-star in an upcoming episode of Castle, EW.com reports, playing a former star of a cult-hit series who meets Richard Castle at a Comic-Con-esque convention.

Ben Stiller has sold a semi-autobiographical comedy pilot to ABC. The project, titled Please Knock, centers on an A-lister who, upon realizing he’s losing touch with reality, moves back to the New York building where he grew up — and where his parents still reside.

Gary Marshall and his son, Scott, are developing a family sitcom for Fox. Per TV Guide Magazine, the project follows a formerly wealthy man who must move back in with his family after being caught in a scam.

Bethenny Frankel’s talk show Bethenny — which enjoyed a successful six-week test run this summer — has landed a syndication deal and will launch nationally in 2013.

    So excited for Nikita! After finding S1 a bit MEH, I LOVED S2, particularly towards the end with the ‘family’ dynamic. Really looking forward to seeing how this season will pan out :)

  2. tvaddict says:

    So ready for Nikita to return!!!

  3. ndavika says:

    Could not be more excited for NIKITA!! God is it Oct 19th already?!? No?? Well I’ll just have to watch this 912853724567253 more times til then! :)

  4. Mikaylah says:

    Did anyone really expect Nikita to take orders? Can’t wait for it to be back!

  5. Linda says:

    What the hell are they doing over at Y&R? They are being completely stupid in all the firings.

    • Joy says:

      I totally agree. The one that really bugs me is Marcy Rylan as Abby. She is the only character in Y & R that has me really laughing. Her Naked Heiress is so silly yet so funny.or are the new writers just sticking to murders/divorces/.screwballs and new teens that so far have not added anything to the show.

  6. Natalie says:

    Can’t wait! Thanks for the great scoopage, Megan. :)

  7. Alan says:

    a former star of a cult tv series, at a sci fi convention, that could be filled with the most references to firefly ever seen in one episode of castle. plus ed quinn is great at being smarmy so that should be fun

  8. Marcy Rylan being fired is such a travesty. She’s the highlight of Y&R.

  9. NEK5552 says:

    I hate that Jennifer London is leaving Y and R. I really start liking her. She was the best one to play the part since the orginal. I wish the would reconsider.

    PS I don’t know if the new writers will go there or not, but I think everything that is indicating that Rick is ALIVE ! that is what I am thinking of course that is off subject.

    looks so good

  11. Patricia says:

    That looks so good cannot wait. Loved season one, season two was meh but this looks like its going to be an Awsome season 3

  12. darcywilson says:

    Yay for Bethenny!!!
    I love that hustler.

  13. JC says:

    We need to watch Nikita season 3 premiere live guys we can’t be complacent it deserves at least a 4th season. A 4th season would secure syndication and Nikita would live on for the next generation :)

  14. Robin says:

    I had no idea about most of those firings at y&r…i like most of those…glad Christal worked out the issues. Really hope Billy doesnt leave. Hope they can work stuff with the others.
