“The Big C” has been renewed for a fourth and final season by Showtime. The series starring Laura Linney will wrap up the show with four one-hour episodes.
Showtime president David Nevins confirmed the renewal Monday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in Beverly Hills.
The series finale is expected to air Sept. 16.
Below are some highlights from Showtime’s TCA sessions…
“Weeds” will end with a two-part series finale on September 16. David Nevins said he has read the series finale script and says it “answers a lot of questions. Mary-Louise Parker told critics, “I think it’s [“Weeds” finale] beautiful. I cried when I read it.”
“Inside Comedy” was renewed for a season of 10 episodes. The second season guest-stars includes Ben Stiller, Tina Fey, Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell and Albert Brooks.
As for “Dexter,” Nevins stated the series ending after Season 8 is “the likely scenario, [but] plans can always change. Everything has gotten rewired this [upcoming season] given that Deb has to deal with who her brother is. Everything changes… Every scene is fraught because you’re wondering what is she going to do. What does he think she’s going to do.”
Nevins also says it is “likely” “Borgias” will conclude after its fourth season.
What about “Episodes” you ask? Nevins said, “I’m expecting “Episodes” to come back.”
As for “Homeland” fate, “anybody could go at any time,” teased David Nevins. Showtime president added fans will “understand the trajectory” of “Homeland‘”s second season by the end of the second episode.
