I’m not psychic but I believe there’s good news ahead for fans of the Patricia Arquette series, Medium. The series’ chances for a fourth season just got better.
Medium tells the story of Allison DuBois (Arquette) as she juggles her duties as a wife and mother while helping police solve crimes with her psychic abilities. The drama also features Miguel Sandoval, Sofia Vassilieva, Maria Lark, David Cubitt, Madison & Miranda Carabello, and Jake Weber. The NBC series debuted on January 3, 2005 and returned for its current (third) season on November 15, 2006.
Medium currently airs on Wednesday nights at 10pm. And though it frequently comes in third in the ratings, behind Lost and CSI: NY, the drama usually builds on its Crossing Jordan lead-in (a series whose future looks quite shaky).
NBC has now ordered six additional scripts for the psychic drama. A script order is typically a strong indication that a network intends to purchase additional episodes.
NBC recently gave Las Vegas an early renewal notice to keep it in production. Vegas had an early season four wrap-date and the network likely wants to stockpile episodes in case there’s a writer’s strike in the Fall. It looks like the peacock network may have similar plans for Medium. Stay tuned!
