Amazon Renews 'Hanna' For Season Three Just After Season Two Premieres!

Hanna will be coming back for another season!

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to give Hanna a third season,” executive producer David Farr shared in a statement about the decision, via THR.

He went on, “When we set out on this journey, I had in my mind a drama that would excavate Hanna’s past, challenge her in entirely new ways and answer the question: can she ever belong? I am truly grateful to Amazon and NBCU that we are able to continue that vision.”

David added, “I am also deeply indebted to Esmé Creed-Miles and to Mireille Enos for their continuing commitment and enormous talent as we take Hanna and Marissa into new and unexplored terrain. It’s going to be an exciting third act.”

Mireille Enos, Yasmin Monet Prince, Dermot Mulroney, Anthony Welsh, Áine Rose Daly and Gianna Kiehl also star in the show.

Lea Michele is mourning the loss of two people she worked with on GleeNaya Rivera and her on-and-off-screen boyfriend Cory Monteith.

Naya was confirmed dead at the age of 33 on Monday (July 13), which happens to be the seven-year anniversary of the day that Cory passed away at the age of 31.

Lea took to her Instagram Stories that day to share three images. The first showed Cory holding a bouquet of flowers while standing on a bridge in Central Park, presumably from when Glee filmed there in 2011.

The second photo was a solo image of Naya and the third photo showed Lea, Naya, and others sitting on a bench on a pier overlooking the beach.

Lea didn’t include any message with the images, but it’s clear that she is going through a tough time right now alongside the rest of the cast of Glee.

Several members of the cast of Glee gathered at Lake Piru on Monday to pay vigil for Naya.

James Van Der Beek Mourns the Death of His Mom with Moving Tribute

James Van Der Beek Mourns the Death of His Mom with Moving Tribute

James Van Der Beek took to Instagram on Monday (July 13) to announce that his mother Melinda sadly passed away last week at the age of 70.

The 43-year-old actor was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars last year and was very open about his mother’s influence on his love of dance.

“My mom crossed over last week. Even though we knew this was coming – and had actually thought we were at the end nearly a year and a half ago – I’m still in shock,” James wrote in his moving tribute. “I’m grateful she’s no longer in pain, I’m sad, I’m angry, I’m relieved… all at once and in different moments. Just trying to hold space and allow for it all.”

James continued, “To thousands of kids, she was ‘Miss Melinda,’ a gymnastics teacher with a big heart, a creative spirit and a mantra: ‘There’s no such word as can’t!’ To my kids, she was Grammy M… a magical grandma with a big laugh and a basement full of costumes and Christmas lights. And to me… she was my mom.”

“She gave me life. She taught me how to tumble. Drove me to my first auditions. She believed in me based on nothing but her own intuition and she passed on a craziness that has been crucial to not just my success, but my own personal happiness,” James wrote. “I don’t know what the grieving/healing process looks or feels like from here on out… all I know is anytime my kids – or any of her students – want to dress up, or get on a stage, or dance, or even just think of her… they’ll have a little extra love from the other side backing them up.”

James also shared a slideshow of personal family photos, which you can view below.

Just last month, James and his family suffered another tragic loss.

Naya Rivera's Death: Police Believe She Saved Her Son, But Didn't Have Enough Energy to Save Herself

Naya Rivera's Death: Police Believe She Saved Her Son, But Didn't Have Enough Energy to Save Herself

Naya Rivera has been confirmed dead at the age of 33 after her body was discovered in Lake Piru, five days after she went missing.

The Glee actress went boating with her four-year-old son Josey on Wednesday (July 8) and he was later found alone in the boat that they had rented. He told authorities that they went swimming and his mom never got back on the boat.

During a press conference to announce Naya‘s death, the authorities said that they it’s currently speculation, but they are working with the assumption that the boat drifted away in the lake’s current. The police believe that Naya used all of her energy to put her son back in the boat and she didn’t have enough energy to save herself.

Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said, “It would be speculation to say at this point. There are a lot of currents on the lake that appear particularly in the afternoon. We believe it was mid-afternoon when she disappeared, the idea perhaps being that the boat started drifting, it was unanchored, and that she mustered enough energy to get her son back onto the boat, but not enough to save herself.”

Ayub also said there is no sign of foul play and no indication that this was a suicide.

Shortly before the press conference happened, members of the cast of Glee visited the lake and held hands on the shore during a vigil for Naya.
