Supernatural Season 7 : Executive producer Sera Gamble tells TVGuide.com exclusively that Felicia Day will guest-star on the April 27 episode titled “The Girl With the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo.” “We were so stoked that she agreed to do the episode because we’re all fan girls and boys here,” Gamble says.
“Felicia plays a girl named Charlie who is sort of a lowly tech working in one of Dick Roman’s companies,” says Gamble. “She’s an amateur computer hacker and unwittingly gets wrapped up in Sam and Dean’s problems. It’s a classic story of an everyday girl who does not want to be in a whistleblower position.”
Gossip Girl will likely be renewed for a shortened sixth and final season, according to an individual close to the production.
The CW drama is expected to return for a reduced number of episodes like fellow CW drama “One Tree Hill” did for its final season, the individual said.
A spokesman for the network said that CW has not yet made a decision about picking up any of its scripted shows for next year.
Given its low ratings, the show is seen as perpetually on the bubble. “Gossip Girl” averaged 1.7 million viewers, and a 1.9 rating in the women 18-34 demo, this year. That’s a far cry from the 2.35 million viewers the show averaged in its debut season.
Nicollette Sheridan and ABC have to wait at least one more day to hear the verdict in the former “Desperate Housewives” star’s wrongful termination lawsuit. After the case went to jury on Wednesday, March 14, the jury announced on Thursday that it has not reached a verdict.
After the first full day of deliberations, the juror consisting of 9 women and 3 men returned to the court at 4 P.M. and told judge Judge Elizabeth Allen White that they were “having difficulty reaching a verdict.” The judge told them to go home and spend the evening reflecting on the matter before returning Friday at 10 A.M. to continue deliberating.
Earlier that day, the jury asked the judge to define “complaint” in the jury instructions. “Although an employee need not formally file a charge in order to qualify as a complaint, the employee needs to put the employer on notice of any allegedly improper activities,” the judge explained.
Met outside the courtroom, Sheridan’s lawyer Mark Baute commented on Thursday’s outcome, “I’m sensing some frustration and polarization.” He additionally showed confidence as saying, “I think the majority of jurors are in Nicollette’s favor but it takes 9 to get to the finish line.”
