• Country music-drama Nashville (2012-current) has been given another encore – the sixthseason renewal was announced with an Instagram video post by Charles Esten (Deacon) and Hayden Panettiere (Juliette) . • Drama Criminal Minds (2005-current) is rolling on later in 2017 with season 13. • Good and bad news for comedy show The Mindy Project (2012-current). It’s back with season 6 in the second half of 2017 but that’s almost guaranteed to be its last. • British crime thriller Midsomer Murders (1997-current) has been renewed for season 20, with another renewal – for season 21 – highly likely. • And seven-episode drama thriller Big Little Lies (2017current) is getting a second season – HBO’s asked author Liane Moriarty to prepare a “show-only” script rather than write another book.
