NBC has set the return of “Medium” for November 15th with a a special two-hour presentation from 9-11 p.m. ET. The series, which is entering its third season, will then occupy the Wednesday at 10:00 PM time-slot, which was previously held by the pulled “Kidnapped” (which is burning off its remaining episodes on Saturday nights).
“I believe this special two-hour episode, ‘Four Dreams,’ is the perfect way for ‘Medium’ to begin its third season,” said Caron. “It is in many ways, it’s our most ambitious and emotional episode to date. The story spans from Indonesia to Phoenix and the larger canvas gave us an opportunity to play with techniques we’ve never used before, such as animation, which is used to depict middle child’s Bridgette’s dreams. It also allowed us to explore in greater depth some of the other characters in Allison’s world that we know very little about. But perhaps most exciting of all, it gave us the chance to invite Thomas Jane — an actor I’ve long admired — to play someone who ends up having an enormous emotional impact on Allison and her family. He is simply electric in the role, and the chemistry between Thomas and Patricia is palpable.”
The series averaged 13.92M viewers for its first season and 11.13M viewers for its second season.
