It's time for your semi-regular, minor update on the highly anticipated new season of "Arrested Development" that is now shooting. In the past week or so we've learned that the Silver Fox himself, "Mad Men" star John Slattery, has joined the cast in an unknown role and more awesomely, that the previously planned 10 episodes could now be stretching out to 13. But when can we see them dammit!? Well, very soon.

When AMC canceled "The Killing" at the end of last month, it put an end to a show that was full of promise but wound up infuriating many viewers by drawing out the mystery behind the murder of Rosie Larsen across two wheel-spinning seasons. In fact, as the second season begun, we laid out the case why viewers should be very, very careful about continuing to tune in to a program that offered increasingly diminished returns. And in any event, audiences were indeed frustrated, as viewership dropped considerably to 1.5 million viewers for the season finale, a tumble from the 2.7 million who tuned in for the first episode. But remarkably, despite harsh criticism from both critics and fans, and clearly measured waning interest, "The Killing" may live on.

Since CBS cancelled his series “The Unit” in 2009, David Mamet hasn’t had a lot brewing on the small or big screen -- his last feature-length film was the 2008 MMA drama “Redbelt.” But the acclaimed playwright has some new television work in the pipeline in the form of a reboot of the classic western series “Have Gun - Will Travel.”

To put it plainly, "The Office" has never really recovered after the departure of Steve Carell. In fact, one could argue the show peaked during season five, his third to last run on the show, and began a downward decline that was only exacerabated by the hunt for a new office manager and a switch in corporate ownership for Dunder Mifflin. It has long retreated for the sharp and funny early seasons, and it is now ready to say goodbye as executive producer Greg Daniels has revealed that the upcoming ninth season will also be the last.

After spinning its wheels for the last couple of seasons, "Dexter" ended season six with a helluva cliffhanger, with the lead serial killer's cop sister literally catching him in the act. As we already know, season seven will begin right where we left off (in case you missed it, you can watch the first two minutes of the first episode here). Now, a new trailer has dropped for the upcoming season, and it appears that Dexter will be playing a game of cat and mouse to keep the depths of his crimes under wraps.

Not terribly well-known even in its native UK, “Getting On” has certainly been a hit with British critics. Airing on niche channel BBC4 (that’s why it's little seen and little known) the sitcom has aired for two seasons and a total of nine episodes since 2009 and follows the medical staff on a women’s geriatric extended care wing at a run-down hospital. Created by and starring Jo Brand (who won a BAFTA for her performance), Joanna Scanlon and Vicki Pepperdine, the Peter Capaldi (“In The Loop”)-directed show has a third season in the works.

"I think I may spend some time on cable," Jodie Foster told the Oregon Herald at Comic-Con last month, about where she might be going next. "I think it's a good outlet for what I do. What I do are personal stories and, in some ways, usually involve family and they have equal amounts of comedy and drama, sometimes an absurdist twist, and they're very verbal. And I like constructing complex characters and hopefully seeing this sort of tapestry of how they interact with each other over time evolve. Well, TV's the place for that." And it looks like those words are coming true.
