'Brothers and Sisters' Could Return for New Season With Less Calista Flockhart

ABC is yet to pick up " Brothers & Sisters " for a new season, but the studio is reportedly trying to find a way to bring the show back for a sixth season. Rumor has it, the plans include an abbreviated final season and less   Calista Flockhart .   With soft ratings and expensive large cast, the veteran ABC series may get budget reduction if it will come back for a sixth season to give a proper closure. Since Flockhart's character of Kitty is not so prominent anymore, the studio is said offering the actress to do only six episodes next season.    Read More... http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00040304.html

'Brothers & Sisters' season finale: The musical event

Oh, don't worry. The "Brothers & Sisters" season finale on Sunday (May 8) isn't taking a page out of "Grey's Anatomy's" book. But, we hear that the episode offers up more musical magic in its wedding-centric season finale than any other episode before it, including hits from Elton John and Lady Gaga."Musically speaking, it's loaded," star Gilles Marini, who plays Luc, confirms to Zap2it exclusively. "'Brothers & Sisters' doesn't usually deal with music that much... pretty much the entire budget was music. It's so good.
