Question: Any word on what’s happening with Revenge? The last few episodes have all felt very series-finale leaning. Will it be renewed or cancelled? And if we do get a Season 5, is there a major revamp in store? —Sean

Ausiello: Based on what I’m hearing about the finale, there would have to be a major revamp if the show returns for a fifth season. Actually, forget revamp — there’d have to be a whole new show. »

Kingsman Femme Fatale Sofia Boutella Lands Star Trek 3 Role

10 April 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After menacing Taron Egerton and Colin Firth with her deadly blade legs in February’s smashing spy caper Kingsman: The Secret Service, Sofia Boutella has landed a lead role in Star Trek 3.

No word yet on whether she’ll be on the side of the USS Enterprise or taking on a villainous role, but from the sounds of it, her involvement is a done deal.

Justin Lin (Furious 6) is directing from a script by Doug Jung (TNT’s Dark Blue) and co-star Simon Pegg. The threequel is a pivotal entry for Paramount and Skydance’s blockbuster franchise, which is currently revamping to be more faithful to the classic sci-fi series it was adapted from and is also the first new Trek film not to be helmed by J.J. Abrams.

7 April 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Lamorne Morris hasn’t made many requests since he started playing New Girl‘s Winston. One was that his kooky character become a cop. Another was that the Fox series seriously consider what that means in America today.

“I love police officers. I think they’re awesome. They look cool as hell when they do stuff,” Morris tells TVLine. “My favorite movies involve police officers. It’s just, you can’t escape some of the things that are shown in the media. You can’t help but see it.”

New Girl Renewed for Season 5, John Cho Joins in Guest Role

31 March 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Bubble-watchers can relax, as Fox has picked up New Girl for a fifth season (while that season is already in production, it's worth noting). Also, for those curious, Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy will not be written into the script, so there will be no baby mama drama. David Madden, President of Entertainment at Fox said of the renewal, Four seasons in, New Girl continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television. The writing is razor-sharp, the ensemble is consistently hilarious, and we couldn’t be more proud of Liz, Brett, Dave and the entire New Girl team. We absolutely love this show and we’re so excited to bring it back for Season Five. TV Line also reports that that John Cho will be joining the cast in a guest role as "a guy Jess meets when she excitedly reports for Jury Duty." (Selfie fans, »

"The Americans" & "New Girl" Renewed

31 March 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

FX has renewed the Cold War drama "The Americans" for a thirteen-episode fourth season. The news comes as the series has four more episodes of the current third season left to air with the finale to screen on April 22nd.

Though not a great rater, the series has received much acclaim from critics with the most recent season nabbing a stunning 92/100 on Metacritic which is the highest score of the year so far and just ahead of "Justified" and "Broad City" with 89/100.

Meanwhile, Fox has renewed its comedy series "New Girl" for a fifth season. The show is currently the network’s longest-running comedy and follows on from the network's third season pick-up of its cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".

TV Line adds that John Cho is joining the cast next season as a guest star, likely for multiple episodes. Damon Wayans Jr., who was a regular during the recent fourth season, »

Fox Renews New Girl for Season 5, John Cho to Appear in the Show’s New Season

31 March 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Get excited, New Girl fans: your favorite group of roommates isn’t going anywhere. Fox has renewed the hilarious sitcom for a fifth season, which means that  we’ll be getting another 20-plus episodes of wild shenanigans in the loft (and I’m hoping some of those shenanigans include more games of True American, whether it’s Clinton Rules or not). Additionally, New Girl will be celebrating its 100th episode in Season 5. “Four seasons in, New Girl continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television,” said Fox entertainment president David Madden. “The writing is razor-sharp, the ensemble is consistently hilarious, and we couldn’t be more proud of… the entire New Girl team. We absolutely love this show and we’re so excited to bring it back for Season 5.” Interestingly, though, New Girl‘s Season 5 renewal was announced after the series had already begun working on its fifth season. »

Idris Elba Up For Lead Antagonist In ‘Star Trek 3′

28 March 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Idris Elba is easily one of our greatest and most versatile home-grown actors. The Luther star has proven this many times over the past decade, in roles ranging from a battle-hardened commander in Pacific Rim, to South African President Nelson Mandela.

Of course, this has undoubtedly put the London-born actor in extremely high demand, with rumours even placing him as Daniel Craig’s future Bond successor. Now, it has been revealed that Elba has entered early talks to play the lead baddie in Justin Lin’s Star Trek 3. Previous rumours had placed Bryan Cranston as the newest adversary for Kirk and his crew, however it is unknown if he was up for the same role, or merely that talks have now broken down.

While some may still be dissapointed that J.J. Abrams will no longer helm the film, Simon Pegg’s involvement as co-writer was definitely music to the ears of many die-hard fans. »

28 March 2015 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago Simon Pegg spoke about his work alongside Doug Jung on the script for Paramount PicturesStar Trek 3, stating that the screenplay had to be finished by June “come hell or high water”, and now he’s offered up a few comments on the tone they’re going for on the threequel during a chat with Spinoff Online.

“We just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. And it’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know. Where no man has gone before – where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation.”

Idris Elba in talks for villain role in Star Trek 3

25 March 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Variety, fan-favorite actor Idris Elba – who’s rumored for every genre role from James Bond to Green Lantern – is in preliminary talks to star as the villain in Star Trek 3

As is the case with these new Trek films, the role itself is being kept under wraps, though previous rumors and comments from co-writer/producer Damon Lindelof in 2013 pegged Klingons as the adversaries this time around. Since there’s been a bit of a regime change with the franchise, there’s no telling if that’s still the case, and Variety’s sources refused to give any confirmation.

Tell us, would you like to see Idris Elba take on the Enterprise crew in Star Trek 3? Who (or what) would you like to see him play? Sound off in the comments below.

Simon Pegg says the script for Star Trek 3 has to be done by June, “come hell or high water”

25 March 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Set phasers to hurry up, Simon Pegg has revealed that he and Doug Jung are working to a very strict timeframe with the script for Star Trek 3.

He spoke openly about the project during an interview with Collider where he said that, come hell or high water, the script had to be finished by June.

“I’m busy writing it,” the actor said. “It’s an ongoing thing. I’m sure we’ll be finessing it, right through the shoot. You never really, truly start writing a movie until the edit. There’s a whole new lexicon that you’re confronted with, when you’ve shot the movie, which is the visual language that you don’t have on the page. And then, you start to realize, “Hang on, we don’t need that speech because that look says it all.” So, it will be an ongoing thing, right until next year. »
