'Brothers and Sisters' Could Return for New Season With Less Calista Flockhart


ABC is reportedly planning to bring back the show for a shortened final season, and in talks with Flockhart to do only six episodes for the new season.

ABC is yet to pick up "Brothers & Sisters" for a new season, but the studio is reportedly trying to find a way to bring the show back for a sixth season. Rumor has it, the plans include an abbreviated final season and less Calista Flockhart.

With soft ratings and expensive large cast, the veteran ABC series may get budget reduction if it will come back for a sixth season to give a proper closure. Since Flockhart's character of Kitty is not so prominent anymore, the studio is said offering the actress to do only six episodes next season.

The final season, meanwhile, could range from 6 to 18 episodes with other cast having minimum guarantee of 13 episodes, Deadline reports. Should the new season have lesser episode, the studio will have to negotiate separately with the stars. Sally Field, in particular, may not have a problem with that because she will be busy shooting Steven Spielberg's feature film "Lincoln".

"Brothers & Sisters" season 5 finale, "Walker Down the Aisle", will air Sunday, May 8 with Sarah and Luc's impending wedding. The nuptials could be in jeopardy as more secrets are unraveled and Sarah is unwilling to swap vows in such situation.

Rachel Griffiths recently sparked speculation that the show would end with the fifth season after she jokingly said at Australia's Logie Awards, "I'm soon to be unemployed so I checked in with [Australia's unemployment department] Centrelink ... and said, 'Looks like I'm out of a job and wanna sign up'."
