Last year Amazon Prime released their biggest television project to the masses. That show was Extant and starred Academy Award Winner Halle Berry as Molly Woods, a female astronaut, whom after returning from a year long solo space mission found herself pregnant. Meanwhile her husband John, played by Goran Visnic was hard at work designing a new form of artificial intelligence, known as a ‘Humanic’. The result was Ethan, played brilliantly by Looper’s Pierce Gagnon, a robot child that Molly and John were raising as there own.
As the series progressed it was revealed that Molly’s baby was of course alien in origin and Molly found herself desperately trying to save her hybrid child form government officials, whilst still trying to keep Earth safe from invasion. If you haven’t seen the show »

Last summer, CBS had high hopes for Extant but the show didn't do very well in the ratings. They renewed it (in part becuase of a streaming deal with Amazon) but a lot of changes were made behind and in front of the camera. Were the changes a good idea? Will Extant be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
Extant, began when astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) returned to Earth after a year-long solo mission in outer space. Her reunion with her family is thrown into turmoil when it's learned that she's pregnant. This season, the cast includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Pierce Gagnon, Grace Gummer, and David Morrissey.
The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better its chances for survival. New ratings data will be added as it becomes available -- typically around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see »

Jesse Eisenberg is also pictured as Lex Luthor with a healthy head of hair, something fans aren't used to seeing.
It's already been reported that Luthor will begin Dawn of Justice with hair, before transforming into the character we all recognise. »
It’s not unusual for a show to make tweaks between seasons, but CBS’ summer sci-fi series “Extant” underwent an extreme makeover for Wednesday’s second season premiere.
Only three of last season’s seven full-time regulars are still with the show (leading lady Halle Berry as astronaut Molly Woods, Pierce Gagnon as her robo-son, Ethan, and Grace Gummer as partially robotic scientist Julie Gelineau), while season one’s male lead, Goran Visnjic, has been replaced by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Entire subplots have been dropped, and the show’s perspective is shifting away from the realm of science, to a pulpier, more action-driven, vibe.
There’s no doubt many of these changes are the result of underwhelming ratings — after bowing to 9.6 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demo, the first season averaged 6.2 million viewers and a 1.1 in 18-49.
They’re also the vision of new showrunners Elizabeth Kruger »

Extant‘s Season 2 premiere falls back on the age-old cautionary tale: While the astronaut’s away, the robotics pioneers will play!
Ok, that’s not the most important takeaway from the CBS drama’s season opener, which finds Halle Berry’s Molly confined to a psychiatric institution in the wake of some very terrible events. But her husband John’s affair stings nonetheless, especially given the way his involvement in the story ends during the course of this episode. (At least the clues to his infidelity were well-laid —apparently, just like Julie! — last season.)
Oh, and the aliens are still out for us. »
Extant's second season premiere, "Change Scenario," features a great shift in the make-up of the show, simplifying the plot and grounding it in more CBS-friendly procedural elements. But with that shift comes a major cast shake-up, as well as some dramatic changes to one of the show's main characters.
The episode picks up six months after the first season finale -- in which Molly saved the human race from being exposed to the alien spores -- to find Molly trapped in a mental hospital. Through flashbacks, we learn how Molly wound up in her current situation. We also meet Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Jd Richter, a gruff cop tasked with solving a case that only Molly may be able to help him with.
Just when you thought the Batmobile couldn't get any more awesome… they went and made a Lego version.
The first image of the Lego Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been revealed and we really, really want one.
Check out Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's official synopsis
The Batmobile and a Lego version of Ben Affleck's Batman will be made available to purchase in a set worth $29.99 (approx £19) on January 1, 2016.
Jesse Eisenberg recently gave us an insight into his portrayal of Lex Luthor in DC Comics' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, saying that his characterisation of Superman's enemy goes beyond that of a "comic book character".
Jeffrey Dean Morgan also teased that he could have a role in the film.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in cinemas worldwide on March 25, 2016.

Picking up six months after the events of last year’s finale, CBS’ Extant decides one thing within the first few moments of its second year: do everything again. Revisit the strife between Molly (Halle Berry) and husband John Woods (Goran Visnjic), but make it bigger; re-do the we-may-lose-Ethan plot, but make it permanent; re-establish Molly as a brilliant scientist, but bring back the slight frayed edges of her psyche lost once the first season cemented her fears as reality. Season 2 succeeds in some departments with this redux angle — especially in a character that gets offed from nearly word go — but it doesn’t fix the show’s most glaring issue: it’s just not intriguing enough.
Season 1 started on such a high point, introducing a near-future full of weird trash cans and talking homes alongside two dueling plots that »

The CBS mystery thriller Extant, about female astronaut Molly Woods (Academy Award winner Halle Berry), is back for Season 2. Having discovered that she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction, Molly and Jd Richter (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a roguish womanizer and mercenary/bounty hunter who has his own doubts about what’s really going on, may be the only hope for survival. [caption id="attachment_480319" align="alignright" width="237"] Image via CBS[/caption] At a press day for the re-booted show’s new season, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how he just couldn’t turn down Halle Berry and executive producer Steven Spielberg, when it came to signing on for this show, what appealed to him about this character, playing the everyman on a show with future tech, the fun dynamic between Molly and Jd, the appeal of a shorter season, and how much he loves working with Halle Berry. »

Fans of CBS’ “Extant” might be in for a surprise with the season two premiere, and we’re not just talking about star Halle Berry’s hairstyle. In fact, Jeffrey Dean Morgan — who joins the cast of the futuristic thriller this year as a cop whose methods are a bit old school — went so far as to tell members of the press that this year was a reboot.
Morgan spoke to Variety about the part that got him back on broadcast television, making believable science fiction dramas and the similarities between himself and his character (note: It’s not a coincidence that the character’s named Jd).
You play a character who is in the future but, because of his career choice, is still rooted in the past.
He’s a throwback. He’s a guy who’s going kicking and screaming into the future, much like myself. I’m a bit of a luddite. »

CBS' sci-fi summer series "Extant," starring Halle Berry, returns for a second season, July 1 at 10pm, with Berry back in the lead, as astronaut Molly Woods, as she discovers that she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction and that she and mysterious stranger J.B. Richter (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) may be the only hope for survival. Discussing what fans can expect in season 2, producers of the series spoke to Yahoo TV, sharing a handful of details on what's to come. Here are a few of note: - "I think Season 2 is a little sexier, a little soapier,” said Kruger, adding, “It’s a substantial reboot, in that we’re going to come in, in this time and place, several months [after the Season 1 finale], and that puts Molly in a completely different head space. Her mental stability is potentially in question, and we’re going to find out how that happens. »

Official photos from the season 2 premiere of Extant, airing Wednesday, July 1 at 10pm on CBS.
"Change Scenario" -- Six months after her life unraveled and dark secrets were revealed, Molly is confined to a psychiatric hospital when she learns of bizarre deaths that sound eerily similar to those she witnessed in space. When she escapes to investigate, she crosses paths with Jd Richter, a determined cop who just signed on to the case. Jeffrey Dean Morgan joins the cast as Jd Richter, a cop and bounty hunter who thrives on solving the unsolvable. »
Jeffrey Dean Morgan spends enough time without his shirt on in CBS’ Extant to make most women take notice. It’s surprising with Morgan’s movie star looks that acting came about accidentally. After helping a friend move to Los Angeles, Morgan met a casting director, and “the next thing you know, I did a Roger Corman movie.” “If you are my age or older, you started doing Corman movies,” Morgan, 49, continues. “And I did a couple of those and I did not know what I was doing. I did not know what a mark was or how to memorize lines, … Continue reading →

“Extant” started with high hopes in outer space, before reentering the Earth’s atmosphere and, creatively speaking, gradually crashing and burning. Still, CBS had a sci-fi drama starring Halle Berry and a nifty Amazon deal to help defray the cost, which likely explains the second-season attempt to continue the project while undertaking a pretty dramatic makeover. As a result, much of the show has been jettisoned, leaving behind the bones of the original, while introducing Jeffrey Dean Morgan as a surly cop/bounty hunter who grudgingly gets involved. It’s a courageous effort, but still looks like a failure to launch.
Without giving too much away, the new season picks up six months after the first, when Berry’s Molly Woods discovered that the inexplicable pregnancy she experienced while on a space mission left her carrying an alien-human hybrid, one with strange powers and nefarious if ill-defined objectives.

When it comes to hotly anticipated movies like, say, Star Wars: The Force Awakens or any of the upcoming slate of superhero films, most of what we think we know comes from the rumors and unconfirmed speculation that swirl around these projects.

The death of his parents plays a pivotal role in the life of Bruce Wayne, who you may have heard has an alter ego, the vigilante crime fighter Batman. When pictures from the set surfaced showing a painting of a man that looks an awful lot like Morgan, people began to speculate that the actor may play Thomas Wayne, Bruce.s murdered father. On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host asked Morgan about this point blank and he said: God dang, it sure looks like me, doesn.t it? »

Way back in August of last year, when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was still shooting exteriors on the streets of Detroit, a painting was spotted that looked suspiciously like Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Was he reuniting with his director Zack Snyder for a cameo? While the actor has never been confirmed for the movie, many believe he is playing Bruce Wayne's dad Thomas Wayne.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host asked if this was the case. While Jeffrey Dean Morgan doesn't come right out and confirm that he has a role in the superhero movie, his smile all but gives it away. He goes onto say that the painting in question does look just like him.
"Gosh dang, it sure looks like me, doesn't it? I think you have to watch the movie to see if that's me. But that looks a lot like me, man! »
"Goddang it sure looks like me, doesn't it?" said Morgan.
"I think you probably have to go watch the movie to see if that's me, but that looks a lot like me, man."
