Some good and bad news for those rooting for shows with Minnesota connections.

First, the good stuff: "Golan the Insatiable," the animated series set in Oak Grove, Minn., will not only return for a second season, but it will move from Fox's late-night animation block to prime time starting at 8:30 p.m. May 31.

The series, which centers around the friendship between a mightly overlord from another dimension and a gothic 9-year-old girl, is the first from the weekend animation block to get a promotion.

Now the bad news.

St. Paul's Josh Miller, who created the show, originally provided the voice of Golan. He's been replaced by Rob Riggle. Mary Mack, one of our favorite local comedians who played the girl, has lost her part to "Parks and Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza.

At least Maria Bamford, who started her stand-up career in the Twin Cities, remains in the cast.
