A beloved series has lined up its first major 2015 guest star: The Stork!
2015 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Getting Cancelled? What’s on the Bubble?
Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that an established program that is covered voraciously on this very site is planning to impregnate its leading lady (the character, not the actress!) early in the new year — and it’s safe to say no one will see the baby twist coming.
The pregnancy — the timing of which defies almost every television convention — has the potential to dramatically alter the DNA of the series. (And this is not a show on its last legs; this baby, and the subsequent implications, will likely be around for a good while). It also comes as the relationship between the mother and father is hardly on solid ground.

Fans of the couple will likely have a mixed reaction, with some complaining it’s way too soon for such a development, and others cheering the inevitable next step —
Bonus clues: The series in question airs on one of the Big 5 broadcast networks (i.e. not cable), and it has been around for more than two but fewer than six seasons.
Please deliver your best, most educated guesses to the comments section.
That looks like Sam Swarek, its Rookie Blue
No not rookie Blue..had not read the leading lady part.
This gotta be Olivia Pope with Jake’s baby..
This site doesnt cover that show very much
Yup – agree. I just read that Danny’s dad will be back in an episode where Mindy announces some big news. Kinda fits perfectly.
Are Mindy and Danny “hardly on solid ground”, though? They might be long distance for the near future and not yet engaged, but they’re rather solid.
I do think it’s them and I think the part about them not being solid it’s just to add up tension??? Like we could imagine any couple that isn’t together RIGHT now? Idk, Mindy Kaling said something about a huge thing coming up and I personally think this is it. it’d be an interesting plotline imo. I’m excited, sooooo excited.
And yes, I think TvLine does cover TMP pretty well.
I was thinking Mindy too. The show mentioned Mindy being careless about her birth control pills (even though she’s an Ob/Gyn) late last season. But is TMP a “beloved” show, “hardly on its last legs?” It’s beloved to ME, and I wish it would last forever, but I don’t think that’s a given.
That’s what I thought! I hope it is. Maybe a little Captain Swan baby or Outlaw Queen!
Yep, I bet it’s Regina. I would say Belle but Rumbelle is already married, unless Ausiello threw that in to throw people off.
I think its Reg. Part of me thinks Lana’s Pregnant (as she did just marry) and they are adding it in.
i though the same, but it will so much fun if the lady is our beloved Evil Queen. That will make a really shocking twist… but i go with Emma and Captain Hook. in either way, Henry will be the brother
I hope not. Mary Margaret and Aurora were both pregnant last year. It was ok and it was enough. I couldn’t handle a pregnancy for CaptainSwan or OutlawQueen.
I think Regina and Robin. They made a big deal about them having sex.
Well Emily can’t get pregnant after Daniel shot her so I’d say no. However, it does say “defy every tv conventional”. Victoria seems to old to be able to have any more children but again…
What if Daniel was lying? It’s revenage right?! Where everyone is deceitful
I think Victoria altered the Dr’s results and I bet Emily can get pregnant. Only problem is she hasn’t actually been intimate with anyone as of late.
But it was Daniel who had the doctors perform the surgery that made her infertile cause it was supposed to help save her life. Plus has she slapped with anybody recently?
Rayna James ladies and gentlemen and the baby daddy… Luke Wheeler!
“Nashville” is a show thats probably on its last legs… the article makes it seem like a hit show.. and they just did the pregnancy thing with Juliette… so i cant imagine they’d do it again.
I love that show! The thought popped in my head for a split second, but I pushed it right out! HA!
I don’t think so… The fans would HATE that, not push for marriage for those two.
The first name that came to mind when I read this was Olivia Pope!
And it will be Jake’s baby obviously seeing as she has not been with Fitz in so long.
Not Castle. Castle is on season 7, and Castle and Beckett are already married and not on shaky ground as a couple.
They’re already married, the item said they’re not on solid ground and with the baby they’ll think of marriage.
Castle is in Season 7 and they have already married
LLOL, how true. But with this show you never know – did Beckett marry the REAL Rick Castle or a 3XK doppelganger? First season was only a half of a season, so . . . I wouldn’t put anything past these writers!
Not Castle….Kate and Rick are already married and the series is in its 7th season.
LOL it’s obviously not Bones especially since they already announced they are writing Emily’s real life pregnancy into the show.
Bones already confirmed that Brennan will be pregnant in the show again. Castle is already married too so a baby wouldn’t push them into marriage.
Good Wife is ending in 1 more season … that’d qualify as ‘last legs’ to me … besides, when has Alicia had sex with Peter last?
I thought Alicia/Finn, but TGW is already in its 6th season. So…. Nope.
an end date for The Good Wife has never been announced there has only been speculation.
Good wife is in the middle of its 6th season, and the show is said to be less then six up above.
That would definitely fulfil the ‘changing the DNA of the show’… Wonder who would get pregnant… Jess would be the more obvious but how about if it was Cece… Daddy being Schmidt of course…
That would be awesome. I’m in for that storyline.
My guess is Once Upon a Time (either Hook and Emma or Robin and Regina) or The Mindy Project!
I can’t even begin to guess if you’re right but I would love the writers endlessly if it were Regina and Robin.
Once Upon a Time just did a baby last season.. cant see them repeating themselves
OUAT is essentially a soap with fairytale characters. We didn’t have an UNEXPECTED pregnancy, yet. It would fit, and I could see them doing it “shortly” after a pregnancy storyline. (especially since that one wasn’t exactly planned by the writers)
Why not? They repeat themselves all the time. The curse is coming:( The curse is defeated:) Regina and/or Rumple are good :) Regina and/or Rumple are evil :( And so on.
Regina and Robin are a good guess, considering how many times they’ve hooked up lately.
That was my first thought too. And although I want them to have their baby girl, I think that it’s still too early in their relationship for a pregnancy.
Well from the fact that its a leading lady, its a major show, and its been around for more than two seasons but less than six, I can only guess Scandal? I’m kinda hoping not though…Shonda is smarter than that.
As much as I hate guessing this, I’m gonna guess Once Upon a Time….
Sure, I’ll toss a line in the lake – “Once Upon a Time -” Emma and Hook!
Oooh, Chicago Fire’s a great guess. On season 3, the couple’s on shaky ground…
The problem is that TV Line doesn’t cover CF all that much aside from premieres and finales and the blurb says they ‘voraciously’ cover this show. They were actually my first thought too until I remembered how little they actually cover the show. It’s probably OUAT because I can see those guys mucking that mess up even more, LOL =P
They cover it a lot in AA, the weekly questions and Matt’s inside line. That’s why I thought maybe. Plus Dawson is pretty much their only leading lady because of Shay :(
I don’t think Dawson fits the “its leading lady” though
a pregnant firefighter would def change the show up and her and Casey arent exactly on great terms right now
Seriously … who would have sex with Laurel?
Seeing as how she’s stunning. Plenty of men. Bye Felicia!
Did you see the first season? Because Oliver and probably Tommy.
I thought so too, but two problems–Is CW considered one of the big five (to me it is, but maybe not to others) and Ollie and Felicity have barely kissed at all, so at what point would they have slept together? Unless she, in her grief over Oliver, Felicity sleeps with Ray and has his kid? At which point I stop watching because no freaking way. Or Roy, maybe, which I still would not like but I would try to deal with. Try, being the operative word.
My first thought was Arrow, but I don’t think it fits…not that that means they would never go there. It would be an awful lot to bring up a pregnancy when we already have the “Oliver doesn’t know he has a kid” drama and Diggle’s baby Sarah in the same season.
“Defying conventions” … it would certainly be unusual to have all that AND add in another pregnancy at this point in the season.
Also it said alter the DNA which I found as an odd saying instead of just change the dynamics or something and Arrow was talking about DNA in the most recent episode
Laurel is gonna start being Black Canary.. i cant see them interrupting that with a pregnancy storyline.
Regina (aka the Evil Queen) on Once Upon a Time? Pregnant with Robin Hood’s baby!?!
Nope, less than six seasons, TGW is in its sixth now.
“an established program that is covered voraciously on this very site”
never mind. didnt read rthe rest.
I think there will be a baby in “The Big Bang Theory”. My congrats to the Wallowitch Family. Just a guesd
That doesn’t negate the fact the show has been on for 8 seasons
Although Mellie would be an interesting twist…from her hook-up with Andrew?
Whatever had to the little boy Mellie and Fitz had. He disappeared awhile ago!
Whatever happened* to the little boy Mellie and Fitz had. He disappeared awhile ago!
That’s my thought as well. It’s a show well covered on TVline, a pregnant Olivia Pope is something that would DRASTICALLY change the entire show (not for the better imo), and it fits the past season 2 but less than 6 criteria.
Not Castle. They’re on season 7, already married, and not on shaky ground as a couple.
They have already announced that ED’s pregnancy will be written in. Also, Bones is in Season 10, and B&B are not on shaky ground.
Yes yes yes! This is the best guess. :D Also, can you imagine Danno pregnant? Even *more* bitching. Haha!
My guess is Once Upon a Time–Emma and Hook (though Regina and Robin would be cool–but leading lady makes me think Emma).
Regina, Snow and Emma are all considered leading ladies of OUAT.
It could be Kono maybe, I guess? Although I can’t remember whether or not her relationship with Adam is on shaky ground at the moment.
I’m gonna go w/ Robin & Regina on Once Upon a Time…Emma and Hook are a possibility, but they seem pretty solid right now…so R&R.
Emma and Hook are anything but solid. He’s been lying to her about his involvement with Gold while he scoops up magical creatures. And he has no heart.
That would be fun…. Obviously the baby daddy would be Finn right? Not Peter….
I think they already announced that Rachel Bilson’s pregnancy was being written into the show. But maybe the how and who of it happening would be the surprise?
But they say the show isn’t on its last legs and Hart Of Dixie’s time seems counted. They said the baby and the consequences of it will be around for a while, so I’m assuming it means the show isn’t in any danger to be cancelled
3.Rachels pregnant in rEal life and they are goNna write it inl
It hasn’t been announced as a final season so it’s not on it’s last kegs
Zade would just be getting back together so for some it’d be too soon by put for Zade shippers they’d be thrilled
I don’t think it would be a big enough shock considering Rachel Bilson is already pregnant. Also, Dixie is pretty much always on shaky ground.
Scandal! Without a doubt Scandal. For a second I thought maybe The Good Wife, but I feel like it’s on it’s last legs! My money is on Scandal!
Regina on OUAT and I called it after the morning scene in the hllway
The last episode pretty much gave away that Juliette was pregnant. I don’t think we can count that one since it already happened.
It would be pretty hard to consider Nick and Juliette too soon since they’ve pretty much been together since episode 1. And Monroe and Rosalee are already married, leaving them out.
I immediately thought The Good Wife and I don’t even watch that show!!
