‘Community’ Stars Want Another Season & Movie; Ken Jeong Teases Cast Reunion

24 July 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Community” was granted a sixth season, after being axed by NBC and resurrected by Yahoo, but could there be a seventh? If were up to Ken Jeong, season seven couldn’t come quicker.

“If they had a seventh season, I would be begging to be on it,” Jeong told Variety, as he was leaving a day of work on his upcoming ABC comedy “Dr. Ken,” in which he stars and serves as an exec producer.

“I will do anything ‘Community’ related. That show was so important to me and I’ve learned so much from Dan Harmon and my fellow castmates about television, and I’ve really become a better actor from that show,” he added. “I’m really setting my hopes on a movie. I really think the stars are aligned to do it. I honestly haven’t heard anything official for a seventh season or a movie, but »

Mulder Asks 'Are You Ready?' in New 'X-Files' Trailer

23 July 2015 8:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During tonight's season finale of Wayward Pines, Fox aired a brand new trailer for their highly-anticipated X-Files Revival, offering a new glimpse at Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). Along with a number of cryptic shots, including a group of soldiers and some sort of medical experiment, the brief X-Files trailer shows Mulder asking his partner if she's "ready for this," to which she responds, "I don't know there's a choice." The six-episode series is slated to debut on January 24, following the Nfc Championship Game on Fox.

Aside from Mulder and Scully, original series stars Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and William B. Davis (The Cigarette Smoking Man) are returning, along with a slew of new cast members. Joel McHale guest stars as a news anchor who becomes an ally to Mulder, with Annet Mahendru, Rhys Darby and Kumail Nanjiani also joining the cast. The most recent cast »

'Rick and Morty' creators: At its best, 'It almost starts to feel like the television is broken'

23 July 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The future of Dan Harmon's "Community" remains very much up in the air (at this point, if Yahoo orders another season, it would likely be a "Community: The New Class" approach, with Joel McHale, Jim Rash and a bunch of newbies). The future of Harmon and Justin Roiland's Adult Swim series "Rick and Morty," on the other hand, seems so secure that, in an interview earlier this week, the two creators made several casual references to things they intend to do in season 3. "Rick and Morty" began in Roiland's mind as an R-rated "Back to the Future" parody where Doc Brown relationship with Marty McFly is much darker and crueler. As Harmon explained to me last year, it evolved into its current imaginative sci-fi form where Rick is the drunk super-genius grandfather of Morty (both voiced by Roiland), forever taking his grandson on disturbing adventures across time, space, »

Dean Haglund (@dhaglund) July 22, 2015

This may come as a surprise to fans, as it appeared that the trio perished while stopping a bio-terrorist in the first rendition of “The X-Files.” (They also appeared in the briefly airing spinoff series named for their clique).

The six-episode “X-Files” event series is set to premiere Jan. 24 on Fox, following the Nfc Championship game. “X-Files” creator Chris Carter is exec producing and David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are back to resume their work investigating the bizarre and supernatural as agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. »

'The X-Files' Is Bringing Back the Lone Gunmen

22 July 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As production continues on Fox's Untitled X-Files Revival, we're slowly starting to learn more and more about the return of this beloved series. Original X-Files stars Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully), David Duchovny (Fox Mulder), Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and William B. Davis (The Cigarette Smoking Man) are reprising their roles. Today we have word from another star of the original series, Dean Haglund, who played Ringo Langly, a member of the hacker group The Lone Gunmen, that he will return for the Untitled X-Files Revival. Here's what he had to say to a crowd in Sydney, Australia, confirming that the rest of the Gunmen, Tom Braidwood's Frohike and Bruce Harwood's Byers, will also be back.

"They're shooting six more episodes in Vancouver right now. Everybody asks about The Lone Gunmen. I played one of the computer hackers called The Lone Gunmen. Everybody asks 'Are the Lone Gunmen going »

The Lone Gunmen Will Be in All Six New 'X-Files' Episodes

22 July 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The Lone Gunmen are saddling up again for Fox's "X-Files" revival!

The trio of geeky conspiracy theorists - played by (from right to left in above photo) Tom Braidwood, Bruce Harwood, and Dean Haglund - will be in all six episodes of the event series. Haglund spilled the news in Australia, then confirmed it on Twitter.

yep, it's true.

- Dean Haglund (@dhaglund) July 22, 2015 The Lone Gunmen were fan favorites in the original series, and starred in a brief spinoff show in 2001. It's unclear how the characters - Melvin, John, and Richard - will come back in the revival, since they died in an episode in the original series' final season. (Then again, the Cigarette Man also died in the original show and is coming back.)

But their return means that the whole "X-Files" gang is really back together again. In addition to »

The Flash’s Robbie Amell will appear in the upcoming X-Files event series. So will Lauren Ambrose of Torchwood: Miracle Day

21 July 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “The X-Files” follow-up has found some new recruits to seek the truth that’s out there.

Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”) and Robbie Amell (“The Flash”) will appear in one episode of the upcoming six-episode event series. Character details were scarce and simply described her Agent Einstein as “sharp” and “confident” and his Agent Miller as “smart” and “smooth.” Despite the actors’ likenesses to “X-Files” stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny — particularly considering Ambrose’s hair color — sources say this will not be a flashback episode, and it will be set in the present day.

Both Duchovny and Anderson are set to return to their iconic roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Mitch Pileggi is also back as FBI official Walter Skinner, along with William B. Davis as Mulder and Scully’s frequent foil, the Smoking Man. Guest stars include Joel McHale, Annet Mahendru, Rhys Darby and Kumail Nanjiani. »

Lindsey Vonn found herself an unexpected participant in Joel McHale's Tiger Woods joke at the ESPYs – but the skier wasn't all that surprised to hear the jab.

"I felt like it was kind of an easy layup, so I figured something was coming," Lindsey told Access Hollywood at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards on Thursday – one day after the Espy Awards.

During the ESPYs, host Joel McHale took a shot at Tiger's infamous relationship woes, most recently his split from Lindsey.

'X-Files' Revival Trailer: Mulder and Scully Are Back

17 July 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"I want to believe!" The iconic UFO poster gets stomped on as the military arrive to investigate strange lights in the first teaser trailer for the Untitled X-Files Revival. Soon, Mulder and Scully are back on the case. And just what is in that bag? Fox revealed the first teaser trailer for The X-Files, which returns after a 13 year hiatus. And it hints at a possible extraterrestrial case for our long absent FBI agents.

Fox debuted the first official footage during last night's penultimate episode of Wayward Pines, turning an average Thursday night into a monumental occasion. The Untitled X-Files Revival was announced way back in May, and only started shooting this summer. While we still have half a year before it hits, Fox is already starting to get everyone excited for the return of Mulder and Scully, who haven't worked since 2008's The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

The X-Files Reboot Teased In New Trailer

17 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The X-Files is coming back to television, and Fox is canny enough to know how much a small-screen revival of the beloved sci-fi/detective drama will mean to its long-time fans. As such, we can probably expect a lot of infuriating, intriguing teasers like the one released today.

With that haunting theme tune and that iconic “I Want to Believe” poster (trampling over it crosses some serious boundaries, random spook), as well as glimpses of David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Dana Scully, the trailer is a tiny but still enjoyable teaser for the reboot that gives away absolutely no plot but should still manage to get fans worked up.

Duchovny and Anderson are returning to topline the new episodes, and they’ll be joined by Mitch Pileggi as Skinner and William B. Davis as the Cigarette Smoking Man. Annet Mehendru and Joel McHale are both joining the cast in new roles, »

BoJack Horseman season 2: spoiler-free review

17 July 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fans of animated Netflix comedy Bojack Horseman will find the new run deeper, richer and funnier than the first...

“This is a situation comedy! No-one watches this show to feel feelings!”

It’s fair to say that Bojack Horseman was one of the more surprising hits among last year’s new programming. A dark animated comedy featuring Will Arnett as an out-of-work sitcom actor who also happens to be an anthropomorphised horse, the show launched on Netflix with relatively little fanfare. But as word of mouth spread, Bojack Horseman found an audience of loyal fans, spawning a Christmas special and now a second series.

One of the biggest surprises of Bojack Horseman’s first season - and something that perhaps wasn’t obvious from the six episodes made available to reviewers at the time - was that beneath the dark, cynical exterior lay a strong, beating heart. Yes, the titular »
