If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.
The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

With production already under way on Season 2 of True Detective, we know the main cast of Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams has been set, but now we're hearing about new actors who are coming aboard. Just one week after Dexter star C.S. Lee signed on, singer Rick Springfield confirmed on his Twitter page that he has also joined the cast. It isn't known yet who Rick Springfield is playing, or how large a role he will have, but here's what he had to say to his Twitter followers on Wednesday.
We don't know yet if Rick Springfield is just appearing as a guest star in one episode, or if he will have a recurring arc throughout Season 2. This season is set in California, »
In your Wtf casting news of the week, 80s one-hit wonder (okay maybe 3 hit wonder) and actor Rick Springfield has joined the cast of True Detective for the second season. Joining the already set main stars in Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, and Rachel McAdams, Springfield's role is currently unknown. We don't have any idea how large or small his part will be, just who he will be sharing screen time with, thanks to a tweet from the actor. Just finished my 1st day »

When I was looking at the list of article ideas Brad compiles for us to choose from to write about, I originally glossed this one over. I'd never heard of Tracers, and he listed Taylor Kitsch as the one starring in it, and that did nothing for me. But I figured why not give it a click and see what it isc So, I did. First thing I noticed was Taylor Kitsch was nowhere to be found, instead it was Twilight's Taylor Lautner that was the star of the movie. Some may see Brad's mistake as just a misprint, which it pretty much is, but I thought it represented something a little more. The differences between Taylor Kitsch and Taylor Lautner are minimal, their physicality aside. They are both bland actors being forced on us to like. They also make me think "Who really caresc" I certainly do not. Is »

Rick Springfield will appear in the new California-set season of True Detective, he announced last night on Twitter. "Just finished my 1st day of shooting for season 2 of HBO's True Detective. What a great script. Working w/ Colin Farrell & Rachel McAdams!" he wrote. HBO confirmed that Springfield will indeed appear, though it's not clear how big a role he has, if his character is friendly with the cops (McAdams, Farrell, Taylor Kitsch) or in cahoots with the criminals (Vince Vaughn, all of humanity), or where he can find a woman like that. »

The second season of HBO’s biggest hit of the year, True Detective, continues to assemble a brilliant cast. Talks concerning the lead roles dragged out for what seemed like months, before its topliners were recently confirmed. Between the showier parts, of course, there’s the meaty supporting roles – and now we’ve news of another name joining the ranks.
Former Dexter quirkster, C.S. Lee has now joined the impressive ensemble. Putting behind the smart-mouthed retorts of the fan favourite, Masuka, Lee will be kitted out in the finest togs to play straight-laced Richard Geldof. Per THR, Geldof is “a state attorney general with grand political ambitions. Described as smooth and polished, the character is well-spoken and intelligent, with an unmoored moral compass.”

Production is already under way in California on Season 2 of HBO's True Detective, but it's never too late to add a new cast member, with Dexter alum C.S. Lee signing on for a recurring role. The actor will portray Richard Geldof, a district attorney who has much larger political ambitions. Geldof is described as, "smooth and polished, well-spoken and intelligent, with an unmoored moral compass." It isn't known how many episodes the actor will appear in.
The eight-episode Season 2 centers on three police officers and a career criminal, who must work together to unravel a massive conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams are playing the three police officers, Ray Velcoro, Paul Woodrugh and Ani Bezzerides, with Vince Vaughn portraying the criminal, Frank Semyon, whose move to a legitimate business is jeopardized by the murder of his business partner. The supporting cast includes Kelly Reilly, »
Cary Fukunaga's It will begin shooting next year.
"The idea is to start official prep in March for a summer shoot," producer Dan Lin told Vulture.
"Cary likes to develop things for a while, and we've been with this for about three or four years, so we're super excited that he stayed with it. You guys are gonna be really excited."
The 1986 novel was famously adapted into a two-part television film in 1990.
It centres around a group of children who must face off against a force that takes on its victims' greatest fears, personified by Pennywise the Clown.
Years later, they are forced to confront the evil again.
The new It adaptation will also be split into two parts. Fukunaga is currently only attached to direct the first.
"The most important thing is that »
Lee will recur as Richard Geldof, a state attorney general with grand political ambitions. Unlike his often inappropriate "Dexter" character, this one is smooth, well-spoken, polished and utterly lacking in morals.
The eight-episode season is currently in production in California and follows three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
