Barrowman (Cate Cameron/The CW)

Coming up in primetime television.

Soaps.com has a much anticipated spin-off event for the week of May 5, as well as an interview, episode teasers, casting, season premieres, an iconic production heads to FOX and more in our latest Primetime Dish column…

2 Broke Girls:
Season finale! In CBS’ Monday May 5 8:00 PM season finale episode Caroline helps Max get her high school diploma and reconnect with her estranged mother.

24: Live Another Day:
Special event premiere and interview! In FOX’s Monday May 5 8:00 PM premiere episode, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) continues to prevent an unthinkable terrorist attack that could very well change the world forever.

Soaps.com sat in on a conference call and when Executive Producer Manny Coto was asked what excited him about bringing the show back he shared, “A lot of things excited us. I think there was a feeling amongst all of us – even though when season 8 finished, and we were tired and we were kind of ready to move on – I think all of us felt that there was more to this story and that Jack Bauer’s character was not quite ready to shuffle off the stage. Of course, there was talk of a movie, so it was generally agreed that there would be more. Particularly exciting is because he is a fugitive – he was a fugitive – and on the run from his own government. A man who had saved the United States multiple times, that same country has turned its back on him. So that is a fantastic dynamic to start a series and something that we seized on and really energized us.”

Almost Human:
Cancelled. FOX has cancelled its freshman series, therefore it won’t return for a second season.

Waterman, Senior Vice President of Event Series for FOX. “Its iconic characters and addictive songs make it the perfect fit for FOX, and we’re going to give it the kind of star power and production quality to make every Sandy, Danny, Rizzo and Kenickie out there want to get up and sing along.” Stay tuned for further details as they come.
