It’s that time of year again. Networks are shaking things up and announcing their new fall lineups. Did your favorite shows with local connections make the cut? Here’s the latest:
‘Believe’: We don’t want to believe it. NBC’s supernatural series, which occasionally filmed in towns including Yonkers and Bronxville, has been canceled by NBC after only one season. Bummer for the show’s executive producer, Sarah Lawrence grad JJ Abrams.
‘Blacklist’: Great news for the Yonkers Film Office. The crime drama, which was often on location in Yonkers during its first season, has been renewed by NBC. The hit show, which also filmed scenes in Pearl River and other Lower Hudson Valley towns, will eventually move to a new night and time: Thursday nights at 9 p.m.
‘The Following’: More Bacon, please! Fox’s hit psychological thriller, starring Kevin Bacon, is getting a third season. The show comes to the local area often, filming in towns from Bronxville to Ossining.
‘Hostages’: CBS is releasing its ‘Hostages.’ The suspense drama, which shot many scenes in Harrison last year, won’t be returning in the fall.
‘Sleepy Hollow’: The supernatural thriller, loosely based on Washington Irving’s classic short story and set in the Lower Hudson Valley, will get a second season on Fox. The network reportedly ordered 15 new episodes.
‘Law and Order: SVU’: Should we expect more Ice T and Mariska Hargitay sightings in White Plains this fall? ‘Law and Order: SVU,’ which occasionally films locally, will return to NBC for its 16th season.
‘Nashville’: You go (get that paycheck), girl! Palisades native Hayden Panettiere’s country music soap ‘Nashville’ is returning to ABC.
‘The Good Wife’: As if there was any doubt, CBS announced that it will renew its hit show “The Good Wife,” starring Spring Valley native Julianna Margulies.
‘Ground Floor’: Congratulations, Skylar Astin! The New City-raised heartthrob’s TBS comedy will be back for another season.
‘Madame Secretary’: We will finally get to see scenes filmed at Ruby Oyster Bar in Rye when the series, starring Teal Leoni, begins on CBS. It will be one of the network’s freshman dramas.
‘Proof’: This medical drama has been added to TBS’s fall lineup — and one the stars is Larchmont native Caroline Rose Kaplan.
‘Head of State’: Scenes for the pilot episode, starring Katherine Heigl and Alfre Woodard, were filmed at Blue Hill Plaza in Pearl River. Maybe it’s a bit of LoHud luck, but the drama series has been picked up by NBC for the fall season.
