What does a visionary and uber-producer who has generated over $2 billion in profit after creating game-changing shows like Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and more do? Any damn things she wants. This week Shonda Rhimes, the world's greatest television producers, did just that by announcing that she is parting ways with ABC and to exclusively create new content for digital streamer, Netlfix, Variety.com reports.
The groundbreaking move from broadcast television to the streaming giant offers "unique creative freedom and instantaneous global reach," Rhimes said in a statement.
While I'm wondering how Ms. Rhimes will pack up her infinity pool of fans' tears and rollercoasters of feels, I'm also doing my happy dance! Rhimes essentially has a blank slate at Netflix, which makes her the hottest ticket in Hollywood. A fangirl's mind reels at the binging possibilities.
However, fantastic shows need fabulous actors, so here are some wonderful actors and one show I've love to see make a pilgrimage to Shondaland...
Fans have successfully willed into existence a chance for another Supernatural spin-off starring fan favorite Kim Rhodes as sheriff and hunter Jody Mills.
The aptly titled Wayward Sisters will kick-off as a backdoor pilot slated to air during Supernatural's 13th season, Deadline.com reports. The show, hemmed by Supernatural EPs Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer, will follow the monster-hunting adventures of Jody Mills' foster family, which will presumably include Claire Novak (Kathryn Newton) and Alex Jones (Katherine Ramdeen).
Unlike the Rihanna-Nyong'o movie, which was inspired by a tweet and fans' passion, the primarily female fans of Supernatural have been championing for Wayward Sisters for several years, starting Twitter and t-shirt campaigns that even caught the attention of Rhodes and other guest stars like Briana Buckmaster.
Admittedly, it'll be great to see the Supernatural mythology wielded by a mostly female cast, but the show has attempted this before with disastrous results. Do y'all remember their disastrous first attempt called Supernatural: Bloodlines? I do. It was scary in all the wrong ways.
In order for the second time to be a charm, Wayward Sisters should follow these simple steps:
Something terrible is happening: networks are announcing the dates of their *gulp* season finales of all of our favorite shows. How could we let this happen?! What am I going to do in that endless, sweaty showhole normal folks call summer?!
Thankfully, I've been through this before, and I know how to handle the post-TV season panic in a way that is more productive than chaining myself to that sculpture in the The CW's headquarter's lobby. I just need to remind myself that that my Netflix and Bravo are still my entertainment lifesavers, and in mid-March, most shows are still in production. Also, thanks to an ever-evolving television schedule, some shows are just beginning production.
Earlier this week, EW.com reported that the one and only Angie Tribeca herself was guest-starring on ABC's black-ish as Rainbow's sister. If you thought it was too good to be true, we know now have photographic proof! In the snap above posted by star Tracee Ellis-Ross, Rashida Jones looks AMAHZING and this BTS shot features all of the Johnson siblings thus far, including Daveed Diggs' free spirit, Johan.

Finally there's actually some major entertainment coming your way in March. No, I'm not talking about that endless college basketball tournament, but the gaggle of new television all blooming in this month. Add in the fact that the sun is still up at 5pm, and March is looking far more alluring than ever before.
Here are 4 new TV shows premiering in March that you cannot miss.
Has the world missed Sam and Dean Winchester in the tedious weeks since Supernatural’s fall finale? According to the ominous new Supernatural promo, the answer is an emphatic yes.
Even Crowley, the King of Hell, admits, “Every Armageddon, every end of days...the Winchesters stopped it. Like it or not, they’re an asset we can’t afford to lose.”
While Hollywood prepare to dole out trophies to a lucky fraction of television’s best and brightest at tonight's 74th Annual Golden Globes, The CW also handed out their own prizes in the form of early renewals at their winter press tour for the 2017-18 season.
If all you wanted for Christmas is a sneak peek of next year's episode of The CW's The Flash, you may want to re-think your life choices, because it. is. terrible. The new and intense promo (below) for the January 24 episode of The Flash finds Barry (Grant Gustin) telling his beautiful bae, Iris, that she will be murdered by the villian Savitar, and vowing to prevent it.
Here's the razor-thin silver lining on the heartbreaking teaser that would make the other, jollier guy in a red suit cry: Team Flash will rally around Iris (Candice Patton) and put their nerd brains and badass meta-human powers to work in order to save the woman who has truly grown to become their heart and soul.
WestAllen fans may notice the blink-and-you-miss-it glimpse of Barry and Iris sleeping in the same bed as the couple is now living in sin. There are worse ways to go, am I right?
Watch the promo below and dump your feels in the comments section.
If you’re a diehard fan of Gilmore Girls, you’ve probably already devoured the Netflix reboot, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, faster than the Lorelalis can polish off a plate of a tater tot tacos. You’ve scoured each of the four parts—one for each season—for callbacks to the original show, and laughed or fast-forwarded through the tedious and needlessly long minutes of the Stars Hollow Musical while wishing that time had been given to plump up Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) or Dean’s (Jared Padalecki’s) cameos. And you’ve ranted, raved and/or fretted over the final four words which I will not spoil here.
I went into the viewing dreading the inevitable walk down Ex-Boyfriend Lane, because all of Rory’s past suitors—yes, even Dean—were several kinds of problematic. Except this time, through the sobering and horrific prism of 2016, they weren’t. It was Rory who was 57 flavors of insufferable, entitled, and selfish. And I couldn't help but wonder: Is Rory Gilmore a terrible person?
For the last five months I’ve been wishing I was blessed with the Speed Force, so I could either run into the future and dive into The Flash's “Flashpoint” arc or book it to an alternate universe so I could slap Barry Allen upside the head for even considering running back in time to save his mother’s life and thus creating an bizarrely different universe. Sadly, I just had to wait for the season 3 premiere like everyone else.
The Flash finally races onto television screens this Tuesday at 8/7c on The CW, but if you’re anything like me, you’re still craving spoilers. Here are 5 spoilers for The Flash’s third season...
Now entering their 12th season, Supernatural is slaying is on a whole new level.
The CW's long-running sci-fi show won Entertainment Weekly's Fall TV Cover Battle, and stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and the cherry 1967 Chevy Impala called Baby grace the cover of one of the biggest issues of the year.
