From the Futon Critic:
Quote:
The Alphabet has renewed the David E. Kelley-produced drama for a fifth season of at least 13 episodes. Industry scuttlebutt however suggests that said renewal is the price the network will pay for the prolific writer/producer to depart his pilot "Life on Mars." "October Road" co-creators Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg have been in talks to serve as the newcomer's showrunners however Kelley himself had to sign off on any such hiring. It's believed then that Kelley used such leverage as part of his negotiations to bring "Legal" back for a fifth go around. Nevertheless, both series are expected to be part of ABC's fall schedule, to be announced on Tuesday.


Yay!

I am so happy. I love that show and it would of been so sad, if it hadn't come back in fall. I hope we will see more than 13 episodes.

I hope we see more of Denny & Allan and less of the others but am glad it's coming back.

That's good to know. I kind of wondered if this was the last season, especially after they let go of Rene Auberjonois, Julie Bowen and Mark Valley.

But I'm with you, guy. Bring on more Alan & Denny!

Just heard that season five will be BL's last ... and the season will only have 12 episodes - with a two-hour-SERIES-finale.

How can ABC do that? I want Denny and Alan for so many more years ... but that news ... it's just so sad.

It's easy because the ratings were going down or so I heard. Five season is a long time for a show nowadays. I didn't like the cast changes over the years, at least they might be able to write a proper farewell.
