Shantel VanSanten Joins Apple Space Drama

Shooter might be ending, but there’s no stopping our dear Shantel. She has joined the cast of the still-untitled Apple space-drama!

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER -Apple’s space-race drama from Ronald D. Moore is expanding its cast.

Shantel VanSanten and Wrenn Schmidt are the latest additions to the show. The untitled show, which received a straight-to-series order in December 2017, is set in a world where the global space race never ended.

VanSanten and Schmidt join a cast that includes Joel Kinnaman, Sarah Jones and Michael Dorman.

VanSanten (Shooter, One Tree Hill) will play Karen Baldwin, the wife of astronaut Edward Baldwin (Kinnaman). The two are a prominent NASA couple.

USA Cancels ‘Shooter’ After Three Seasons

Bad news, Swagger Squad. USA has cancelled the thriller-drama, Shooter, after three season. A little on the brighter side, there seems to be talks about finding the show a new home.

DEADLINE – USA Network has opted not to order a fourth season of thriller drama series Shooter starring Ryan Phillippe. The decision comes as Shooter has crossed the midpoint mark of its 13-episode Season 3 run. I hear leading producer Paramount Television is shopping the series to other networks. Sibling Paramount Network, recently relaunched as Viacom’s leading brand for original scripted series, is a logical destination and I hear that there have been conversations but they appear to have stalled.

USA Network Announces ‘Shooter’ Season 3 Premiere Date

Mark your calendars! Shooter will return for an all-new season on June 21st, Thursday at 10/9c. The season is expected to pick up where we left off. The previous season was cut short due to Ryan Phillippe’s injury and had to end with Episode 8. The network also released a short description on what Season 3 will bring us. Exciting!

Based on the best-selling novels by Stephen Hunter and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg, SHOOTER follows the journey of Bob Lee Swagger (Ryan Phillippe), a highly decorated veteran who must confront a nemesis from his past in order to return to a life of normalcy. In Season 3, mysterious details are revealed surrounding his father Earl’s death, leading Bob Lee towards a startling conspiracy that hits close to home.

USA Network Renews ‘Shooter’ for Season 3

The wait and worrying is finally over. Shooter has been renewed for a third season! It will consist of 13 episodes, up from 10 and 8 from the previous two seasons, respectively. Filming starts on January, but pre-production has already begun and the cast has shared some photos while on training!

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – USA Network is keeping Shooter around for another season.

The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has handed out a third-season renewal to the military drama starring Ryan Phillippe. Production on season three begins in January in Los Angeles. Sources say season three will consist of 13 episodes — up from 10 and eight in seasons one and two, respectively. Season three will pick up where season two left off and use all new footage with viewers getting resolution from the sophomore run, which was cut short from its planned 10-episode run following Phillippe’s injury.

The upcoming season is based on the second book in the Stephen Hunter’s Bob Lee Swagger series, titled Black Light. As Bob Lee struggles to put an end to the events of season two, a nemesis reveals mysterious details surrounding his father Earl’s death, leading Bob Lee toward a startling conspiracy that hits close to home.

Shantel VanSanten to Recur in ‘Scorpion’ Season 4

While we’re waiting for news on Shooter, Shantel will be seen next in the current season of Scorpion!

TVLine has learned exclusively that VanSanten is set to recur during Season 4 of the CBS drama as Toby’s onetime fiancée, Amy Berkstead, who is now married to his nemesis, pop-psychologist Quincy Berkstead (Jeff Galfer).
Amy is described as a brilliant geneticist that Toby met while at Harvard Medical School. Although she broke off their engagement due to Toby’s gambling and immaturity, she (for obvious reasons!) still has an effect on her ex all these years later.
Will newlywed Toby’s wife Happy be threatened by the beautiful and personable rival? Stay tuned for that answer and more when VanSanten makes her debut in Episode 13, airing in January after the holiday break.

‘Shooter’ Season 2 Episode Order Cut

Deadline has reported that the current season of Shooter will end with episode 8, instead of the originally planned 10 episodes. Series star, Ryan Phillippe, suffered off-set injury and broke his leg last July 16th. Wishing Ryan a speedy recovery! Health is and should always be the top priority.

The current second season of USA Network’s drama series Shooterwill consist of eight episodes instead of the originally ordered ten.

The trim stems from the off-set injury suffered by series star Ryan Phillippe who broke his leg on July 16. At the time, Shooter was in the midst of filming the ninth episode of its 10-episode second season. While production went on for a bit without Phillippe, it has since been shut down. And USA, along with the series producing companies Paramount TV and Universal Cable Prods., have since made a decision to only air the completed episodes, with Episode 8 serving as a Season 2 finale.

“Our priority is Ryan’s recovery, and after conversations with our partners at USA and UCP we’ve decided that we will wrap S2 with episode 208, Paramount TV said in a statement to Deadline.

Sources said that there is a natural story point in episode 208 that works as a season finale, and, while this was not the original plan,  the producers, network and studio are happy with the way the Season 2 story would wrap.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Shooter for the season two pick-up!

War hero. Family man. Fugitive. Bob Lee Swagger’s story in season one of Shooter has no shortage of thrills, suspense, drama, and all-around badassery. Now, as an early Christmas gift for SHOOTER fans, usa network has announced a season two pick-up of the action series starring Ryan Phillippe and Omar Epps.

Based on the bestselling novel Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg, Shooter follows THE JOURNEY of Bob Lee Swagger (Phillippe), a highly-decorated veteran who is coaxed back into action to prevent a plot to kill the President. When Swagger’s former commanding officer, Isaac Johnson (Epps), solicits his expertise for a clandestine operation, Swagger discovers that he has been framed and must do everything in his power to protect his family and clear his name.

Bolstered by a strong lead-in from WWE Smackdown, along with a highly engaged audience, Shooter is USA Network’s #1 new series year-to-date among viewers age 18 to 34, and the combination of Smackdown and Shooter has made USA the #1 ad-supported entertainment cable network on Tuesday nights from 8-11PM.

“John Hlavin and the team behind Shooter have delivered a compelling action thriller that consistently engages a strong and loyal audience,” said Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We look forward to partnering once again with Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions as we follow Bob Lee into his next chapter.”
