New iZombie Photos: Liv and Lowell Are the Happiest Zombie Couple Ever

24 April 2015 12:10 PM, PDT

This past Tuesday’s episode of iZombie was probably the series’ best yet, and it was filled with many memorable moments, including Liv and Ravi’s video game bonding session, Clive coming very close to meeting his maker when visiting Blaine’s butcher shop, and Liv and Ravi finding out, thanks in large part to Major, that Blaine is behind the disappearances of the all the teenage boys. However, even though “Virtual Reality Bites” ended on that dark discovery, it was a moment, merely a few scenes before, that has had many fans buzzing all week long: Liv and Lowell locking lips (didn’t mean for that alliteration right there, but I’m keeping it). And from these all-new photos from next week’s episode of iZombie, titled “Maternity Liv,” it looks like things between the lovebirds are going pretty well, as they kiss and dance together in Liv’s apartment. »

How This Week’s Arrow Showed Us the Real Oliver Queen

24 April 2015 11:30 AM, PDT

It goes without saying at this point, but I’ll just repeat it one more time: Arrow Season 3 has been all about identity and no person’s more so than Oliver Queen’s. Oliver has gone from believing he could only be the Arrow, to having that title stripped away from him completely, to now adopting a new one entirely as he officially joins the League of Assassins as “Al Sah-Him” in this week’s episode, “The Fallen.” (For the record, I know that “Al Sah-Him” technically means “The Arrow,” as Ra’s said in the episode, but I’d argue it’s still a different identity.) And while I thought “The Fallen” was another solid episode in what has been quite an entertaining, if slightly uneven, season of Arrow (although I’ll stand by my claims that this season has done right by most, if not all, of the »

Evan Peters Returning for American Horror Story: Hotel

24 April 2015 10:31 AM, PDT

If you thought all the vacancies in American Horror Story: Hotel might be taken up, think again. Evan Peters is the latest American Horror Story alum to join the cast of the FX series’ upcoming fifth season. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy announced the news on Twitter earlier today. “This season, Evan Peters will be waiting for you in Room 64,” Murphy wrote. Aside from Murphy’s tweet, which doesn’t really provide any specific details, nothing is yet known about the character that Peters will be playing, and since he’s played so many different roles on the anthology series throughout the years, it’d probably be hard to guess. Peters went from playing the villainous Tate in Season 1 of the show to being a heroic co-lead in Asylum, and he then portrayed Kyle, a Frankenstein’s Monster-like character, in American Horror Story‘s third season, Coven, before taking on the role of Jimmy Darling, »

Grey’s Anatomy to Air Two-Hour Episode Next Week, Pushes Back Scandal Finale

24 April 2015 8:25 AM, PDT

ABC is giving Grey’s Anatomy and its fans some extra time to spend together next week, and after last night’s tragic twist (I haven’t watched Grey’s since the beginning of Season 10, and I’m still upset), it makes total sense. Instead of following its typical Thursday lineup of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and American Crime, the network is letting the long-running series air a two-hour episode next Thursday, April 30. The Grey’s episode (which is titled “She’s Leaving Home) will begin at the show’s original time at 8 p.m., and thus bump the final two episodes of Scandal back a week. Therefore, both Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal will now both end their current seasons back to back, during their regular time slots, on May 14. Here’s an exact breakdown on what’s happening (schedule-wise) with both shows over the next couple of weeks: Thursday, »

Reese Witherspoon, Louis C.K. to Host Final Saturday Night Live Season 40 Episodes

24 April 2015 7:51 AM, PDT

Just like the rest of the shows on the broadcast networks, Saturday Night Live is also coming to the end of its season, and it’s made sure to get some pretty solid guests for the weeks to come, including one of the Avengers, an Oscar winner, and everyone’s (and by everyone’s, I really mean “my”) favorite comedian. As previously announced, Scarlett Johansson will return to host SNL for her fourth time next Saturday, May 2, which is only one day after the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron (which is guaranteed to be the biggest movie of the summer, if not the year). The musical guest for Johansson’s episode will be Whiz Khalifa, who will be making his Saturday Night Live debut. Following Johansson, on May 9, will be Reese Witherspoon, who will be hosting SNL for the second time. The actress, who was just nominated for another »

Arrow and Flash Spin-Off Casts Edge of Tomorrow Star Franz Drameh as Jay Jackson

23 April 2015 12:10 PM, PDT

The CW’s upcoming Arrow and Flash spin-off has found itself another hero. English actor Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow) has been cast as Jay Jackson. Jay is a former high school athlete whose pro career was cut short by injury; he now works as an auto mechanic to get by and will reportedly have a “surprising affiliation” to the S.T.A.R. Labs group on The Flash. When TVLine first reported the original casting breakdowns for the Arrow and Flash spin-off, Drameh’s character was only referred to as a “Mystery Hero,” with the description calling the character a “regular, street smart guy who unexpectedly gains powers, and then, as part of the team, regularly quips about the insanity of the situations.” Since it says that Jay will “unexpectedly” gain powers, does his affiliation with S.T.A.R. Labs and The Flash mean that he might be a metahuman, »

David Letterman to Be Honored With Primetime Special Hosted by Ray Romano

23 April 2015 11:36 AM, PDT

CBS is giving David Letterman a little bit of an extra goodbye before he signs off with his final Late Show broadcast next month. The network announced today that it plans to honor the legendary host with a 90-minute, primetime special called David Letterman: A Life on Television. The special, which air on Monday, May 4, beginning at 9:30 p.m, will be hosted by actor and comedian Ray Romano, whose Emmy Award-winning CBS series, Everybody Loves Raymond, was produced by Letterman’s production company, Worldwide Pants. The special will mine the video vault, with highlights including some of the best of Letterman’s interviews with presidents, world leaders, sports figures, and the biggest names in entertainment and music. Also, it will feature highlights of Letterman’s trademark show segments, including the Top Ten List, Stupid Pet, and Human Tricks, as well as signature stunts that played out against the backdrop of New York City. »

Dancing With the Stars: Foot Injury May Cause Derek Hough to Exit Current Season

23 April 2015 10:19 AM, PDT

While all Dancing With the Stars‘ celebs remain healthy, the show may be losing one of its pros. Derek Hough, who, with his partner Nastia Liukin, has scored very well throughout Season 20, may be forced to sit out for the rest of the season due to a foot injury. “While rehearsing for the 10thAnniversary Dancing With the Stars television special Monday night in Los Angeles, Derek Hough suffered injuries to his right foot and left ankle,” a rep for Hough said in a statement to E! News. “He has been diagnosed with a broken toe on his right foot and sprains to his left ankle on both the inside and outside aspects and a bone bruise on the same ankle.  Derek will remain in Los Angeles this week to rehab his injuries and his understudy will be filling in for him for New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music… »

New True Detective Posters Preview the Darkness of Season 2

22 April 2015 1:51 PM, PDT

It’s no surprise to anyone that there’s going to be some bad people in True Detective Season 2, but according to these two posters promoting the show’s new season, those who do dark deeds won’t just be affecting themselves or their loved ones—they’ll be harming the world. As you can see for yourself below, the new posters for True Detective Season 2 (which are actually gifs) promise that “We get the world we deserve.” While those words could mean a lot of things, I’m going to guess that it most likely has something to do with corrupt cops (who are played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch) working with criminals (such as the one being played by Vince Vaughn). Maybe these officers believe they can bend the rules and create something good by doing some bad things, that the ends justify the means. »

Fargo Casts Adam Arkin to Play Mob Boss in Season 2

22 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT

Even though it doesn’t have a premiere date yet, Fargo Season 2 is one of the most anticipated TV events of 2015. And if fans of the series weren’t already excited enough, this casting news should pump them up. As first reported by EW.com, actor/director Adam Arkin has joined the cast of Fargo Season 2. Per EW, Arkin will play the character of mob boss Hamish Broker, who is described as a “‘mid-level manager in the Kansas City crime syndicate’ (but is likely the highest-ranking member of the crime organization that we’ll actually see).” In addition, Arkin will also be directing the penultimate episode and finale of Fargo Season 2. Initially, he was only supposed to be a director for the series but was asked by Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley if he would play Broker, too. Arkin is no stranger to acting and directing in FX dramas, as he did so in… »

USA Network Cancels Sirens After Two Seasons

22 April 2015 10:59 AM, PDT

There will be a lot less laughter on USA next year. The network has decided to cancel its comedy series Sirens after two seasons. Sirens followed a group of paramedics in Chicago and the many professional and personal troubles they endured. The series, which was loosely based on the British comedy of the same name and was adapted by Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, starred Michael Mosley, Kevin Daniels, Kevin Bigley, Jessica McNamee, Bill Nunn, Kelly O’Sullivan, Maura Kidwell, and Josh Segarra. When it debuted last year, Sirens was USA’s first-ever half-hour comedy series, as the network attempted to carve out its own identity in the genre after acquiring Modern Family (repeats of which you can still watch pretty much all the time on USA). Although Sirens was never a huge hit, it did develop a strong and loyal fanbase throughout its first season; however, that fanbase didn’t grow at all during… »

Why the Rest of Agents of Shield Season 2 Should Be More Like Last Night’s Episode

22 April 2015 10:09 AM, PDT

After a promising start this fall, the second season of Marvel’s Agents of Shield has been a bit uneven since returning from hiatus in March. The eight episodes we’ve seen so far from the back half of Season 2 have certainly been a mixed bag, and while last week’s “Melinda” probably remains the high point of Agents Shield‘s spring run up until this point (Ming-Na Wen’s performance was fantastic), I’d argue that last night’s episode of the series provides a better model for what Shield should be attempting to do moving forward, as “The Frenemy of My Enemy” supplied a lot of what has been missing in the show’s more recent episodes. And what has mainly been missing from Agents of Shield this spring has been cohesion. While it’s been interesting to see the show explore Skye’s Inhuman origins, as we »

Aziz Ansari Reteams With Parks and Rec’s Michael Schur on New Netflix Comedy Series

22 April 2015 7:58 AM, PDT

If you’re like me and have been missing Parks and Rec like crazy ever since it finished its seven-season run back in February, get ready to “treat yo self” to a new series that may possibly fill that Parks and Rec-sized hole in your heart. Aziz Ansari is reuniting with Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Shcur for a 10-episode, half-hour comedy series for Netflix. The series, which will be based in New York, remains untitled at this time, and its premise is also being kept secret. Ansari, who will star in the comedy, created the show along with Parks and Rec co-star/executive procuder Alan Yang. The two of them will also serve as executive producers, along with Schur, David Miner (Parks and Rec, Brooklyn Nine-NineUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Dave Becky (Broad City, Real Housewives of Hollywood, Louie). In addition to Ansari, the comedy’s cast also includes Jon Benjamin (Archer, »

Netflix Renews Daredevil for Season 2, New Showrunners Taking Over

22 April 2015 6:45 AM, PDT

Matt Murdock isn’t done fighting crime in Hell’s Kitchen yet. Netflix has renewed its first Marvel series, Daredevil, for a second season. This news isn’t surprising, particularly because of the incredible amount of fan and critical praise the series has been receiving; however, what may surprise some is the fact that two new showrunners will be taking over for Steven DeKnight and Drew Goddard in Daredevil Season 2. Executive producers Doug Petrie (American Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) will replace DeKnight and Goddard as the new heads of the series. Both Petrie and Ramirez worked closely with the previous showrunner duo during Daredevil‘s first season, so I wouldn’t expect the style or tone of the series to change in any dramatic way. “While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season, I could not be happier that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez… »

TV Land Renews Younger for Season 2

21 April 2015 11:03 AM, PDT

TV Land will continue to get Younger for another year. The cable network has renewed the freshman series for a 12-episode second season after just four episodes (a fifth episode of Younger airs tonight at 10 p.m. on TV Land). Younger premiered last month to 504,000 viewers, which isn’t exactly a huge audience, even by cable network standards. Still, though, TV Land states that the show has reached a total of 20 million people via multiple viewing platforms, such as Nick at Nite, Hulu, VOD, and TVLand.com (where you can watch all four episodes of the series right now). “We couldn’t be more excited that audiences are discovering Younger and falling in love with our fabulous cast,” said series creator Darren Star in a statement. “I can’t wait to have everyone back in New York to shoot Season 2.” Additionally, series star Sutton Foster also tweeted out her excitement regarding the renewal… »

21 April 2015 10:35 AM, PDT

The Red Road has gotten of to quite the intense start in the first three episodes of its second season, and things don’t appear to be changing anytime soon, especially not in this Thursday’s episode. In this exclusive sneak peek at the hour, Junior has a tense encounter with a group of men who say they are to survey his land for the new casino. However, Junior is suspicious of the workers and doesn’t believe they are actually there under his chief’s orders, which is why he pulls out his rifle and stands his ground. But does the situation come to a peaceful resolution, or does it become a more violent altercation? Watch the scene for yourself and find out. Check out the exclusive clip from this Thursday’s The Red Road, along with SundanceTV’s official description for the episode, below, and make sure to »

Empire Promotes Gabourey Sidibe and Ta’Rhonda Jones to Series Regulars for Season 2

21 April 2015 10:17 AM, PDT

Empire fans who want more of Becky and Porsha will get just that when the series returns for Season 2. The Fox musical drama has promoted both Gabourey Sidibe and Ta’Rhonda Jones to series regulars ahead of its second season. TVLine first reported the news. The characters of Becky and Porsha, who are Lucious (Terrance Howard) and Cookie’s (Taraji P. Henson) assistants, respectively, have become Empire fan favorites, as viewers have thoroughly enjoyed (and tweeted about and gifed) many moments featuring the two of them. It will be interesting to see what their expanded roles will be like when Empire begins its second season. Sidibe may be best known for her Oscar-nominated role in the 2009 film Precious. Her past TV credits include American Horror Story (she appeared in both Coven and Freak Show), The Big C, and American Dad. Meanwhile, for Jones, Empire is her first major television role; however, »

Regina King Joins The Leftovers Season 2

21 April 2015 8:49 AM, PDT

There will be plenty of new faces when HBO’s The Leftovers returns for its second season, and now we know who one of them will be. American Crime actress Regina King will be joining the HBO drama as a series regular in Season 2. According to TVLine, King will play Erika Murphy, “a doctor who runs the local urgent care in town.” The series is still currently casting the roles of her husband, John, and teenage kids, Evie and Michael. The members of the family will be a few of the many new characters that The Leftovers will introduce in Season 2. The Leftovers‘ creative team is completely revamping the series for its second season, due to the fact that the show burned through pretty much all of its source material. The series, which was created by Damon Lindelof and author Tom Perrotta, is based on Perrotta’s 2011 novel of the same name, »

Agents of Shield Spin-Off to Reportedly Star Adrianne Palicki & Nick Blood

21 April 2015 8:03 AM, PDT

After initial reports came out earlier this month about a possible Agents of Shield spin-off at ABC, we now have some more information about the potential series. Reportedly, Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood, who currently play the ex-husband-and-wife duo of Barbara “Bobbi” Morse (aka Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter on Agent of Shield, are being eyed to star in the Shield spin-off. Nothing specific is yet known about the story for the prospective series, although the groundwork for it will be laid during Agents of Shield Season 2 without the show dedicating an entire episode to the idea (in other words, don’t expect there to be a backdoor pilot of any type this year on Shield). However, while we don’t yet know any real details about the plot of the Shield spin-off, if both Palicki and Blood are being chosen as the show’s leads, then this would eliminate any »
