TV News - 'Nashville,' 'Haven,' 'Community,' 'Elementary' & 'Eastbound & Down'

        Monday, July 8 - Chris Carmack and siblings Lennon and Maisy Stella have been upgraded to series regular status for the upcoming second season of ABC's Nashville. Carmack joined the musical series in the back half of its first season while the Stella sisters have appeared since the pilot episode as the daughters of Rayna (Connie Britton).

Syfy's drama series Haven will return for its fourth season on Friday, September 13 at 10/9c.

Donald Glover will not be returning to NBC's Community full-time for its upcoming fifth season. The actor's desire to spend more of his time working on his Childish Gambino music career is the main reason for his reduced role. He is expected to appear in five of the series' thirteen episodes.

British actor Sean Pertwee will appear on the second season premiere of CBS' Elementary. He will play Lestrade, a Scotland Yard inspector frequently seen in various iterations of the Sherlock Holmes mythology.

Omar Dorsey (Django Unchained) has booked a recurring role on the fourth and final season of HBO's Eastbound & Down. He will play Dontel Benjamin, a flashy former NFL player-turned-loudmouth talk show host who is aggressive and obnoxious - rarely letting anyone get a word in otherwise.
