Omg omg omg! I know it's dangerous to get our hopes up when it comes to extensions/renewals of beloved gone-too-soon TV shows, but look what happened to Arrested Development! The times, they are a changin'. And TBIvision.com is reporting that Shawn Ryan , creator of The Shield and one of our favorite short-lived shows here at IGN TV, Terriers, is currently in talks to produce a two-hour Terriers TV movie.

FX will not renew freshman drama Terriers, the network announced Monday. The show, created by Ted Griffin (Ocean's Eleven) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield, The Unit), starred Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James as a pair of ragtag private investigators who became entangled in a corporate conspiracy that threatened their hometown of Ocean Beach. Although the show was critically adored, it struggled to find an audience from the very beginning. The series premiere in September drew 970,000 viewers and 0.49 rating among the coveted 18-to-49 demographic, considerably lower than the premieres of FX's other failed series Dirt and The Riches. Last week's finale scored a 0.3 demo rating and drew 784,000 average viewers. FX President John Landgraf is expected to address the show's cancellation at a news conference Monday afternoon.

More than halfway through the Season 1 closer, the big bad behind the deadly land grab in Ocean Beach was revealed — a tech mogul played by the always-mesmerizing Neal McDonough (Desperate Housewives). Though it seems like the mastermind got away with murder, Hank (the Emmy-worthy Donal Logue) swore to "come after him for something else... with both barrels." What a second-season showdown that would be. Sadly, it's unlikely we'll witness it, due to Terriers' terrible ratings; last week, the show drew a mere 0.2 in adults 18-49, albeit on the night before Thanksgiving. So let's give thanks for a terrific 13 episodes and wish Hank and his bromantic partner Britt (the equally extraordinary Michael Raymond-James) safe travels, wherever they end up.

Bad things seem to happen to everyone around Terriers' Hank Dolworth. In the penultimate episode of the FX drama's first season, Hank (Donal Logue) pulled Jason Adler (Loren Dean), the new husband of Hank's ex-wife Gretchen (Kimberly Quinn), into his investigation of a corporate conspiracy that threatens Ocean Beach. And by the episode's end, Jason was dead. "I was completely shocked," Quinn tells us of when she first read the script. "I had no idea he was going to die. The bigger shocker for me is that he died because he was tied up with Hank." Indeed, that wrinkle threatens to destroy an already strained relationship between Gretchen and Hank, who divorced because of Hank's alcohol problem. Earlier this season, Hank dug into Jason's past as an accused child molester in an attempt to protect Gretchen, but when his theories were disproved, Gretchen asked Hank to stay out of her life.

Terriers star Donal Logue has admitted that he is pleased with the ratings-troubled show's critical reception. The actor told the Futon Critic that he was "proud" of the FX detective drama. "Important people really did champion the show, which makes us feel very good," he explained. "We felt like we were doing something that people would relate to and thank God they did. We're not crazy and we're proud of it." Logue, who previously criticised the title of the series, also admitted that he had joined Twitter in an attempt to boost the show's profile. "You need all [of] that kind of representation in social media just to help people find it," he suggested. "The thing is, a lot of general viewers just react to what they first see and if the title puts them off or whatever, they'll spin off of it and never come back. They're not going to read a blog and they aren't reading... the different [articles] that really champion the show." To Read More Click Here.
