Caitriona Balfe in New Outlander Trailer

5 hours ago

Starz is not playing around with the expected success of Outlander. During this week’s Comic Con San Diego they have focused on releasing a new trailer for those who could not attend the special premier. While it will be online for fans to stream later on, Starz wanted to build more buzz for Caitriona Balfe’s adventures on Outlander. Thus the new trailer shows us both sides of Claire Randall’s life as before the time warp to after it. The series will premier on August 9th.

I am glad that they did release a better trailer for it. I think it tells us more about her life and also shows us what we can expect as she finds herself stuck in the past. It cannot be easy, but it will be interesting to see how her character copes on screen to come in terms that her previous life »

Jennette McCurdy Confirms She Ended Sam & Cat

19 hours ago

Around two weeks ago Sam & Cat was confirmed as cancelled, now we hear Jennette McCurdy’s side of things. She took to Reddit to tell her story and she admitted that she is far from perfect. But after the photo leak she felt it was best to move on and not allow people to hang on to this image they had of her. In other words she admitted she is the reason the show ended. Here is what she had to say as a few highlights from her rant.

I am not a role model. I don’t claim to be, I don’t try to be, and I don’t want to be….I am proud of the way I live my life. I am proud of my choices. I am proud that no one can call me fake or say I don’t stand up for myself. I »

25 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT

Walking Dead‘s Robert Kirkman just had another series ordered to pilot. Outcast was ordered for a pilot pick up by Cinemax, who is clearly trying to join the likes of Showtime and other networks with original series. This is huge news as Outcast graphic novel series only came out last month. Now the series has been given the green light for series production. The book is about demons and not zombies. Here is what Robert said with the exciting announcement.

Big News @comic_con Demons are the new Zombies! #Outcast pilot into pre-production @Cinemax. Thx to partners @FoxIntChannels @Skybound #sdcc

MTV Renews Teen Wolf

24 July 2014 7:40 PM, PDT

Fans of MTV’s Teen Wolf will see more sexy shirtless men and action. MTV confirmed at Comic Con San Diego that the series will be renewed for a fifth season. This comes at the heels of their successful 4th season that had fans very excited. Now fans know that this next season will be huge for them and the cast, as MTV hinted at that for the fifth season it will be 20 episodes split into 2 parts.

I am sure the cast is very happy about the paycheck boost with more episodes. It does make you wonder why they chose for such a high number of episodes. It is unusual of MTV to do such and it doesn’t seem to have a clear cut reason for it, unless they are hoping to make it more of a full season series at some point.

How do you feel about Teen Wolf‘s promotion of sorts? »

Community Planning New Episode Schedule

24 July 2014 6:43 PM, PDT

Now that Community was saved by Yahoo, the team now has to decided how they will proceed and on what schedule. The creators and cast attended Comic Con San Diego promised that the show will stay true to who they are. The real issue will be figuring out the streaming schedule for Yahoo Screen. The writers will return to work this fall, leaving them some time to figure out what to do next for how they will air episodes. Beyond that, they also confirmed that romance, bad reputation for the school and holiday episodes are still planned. Fans should expect new episodes starting around the holidays if things go to plans.

Fans should be happy to know that the show will remain the same. As for how this will affect the episode count, I am not sure. That appears to depend on how often they will wish to air it or their budget. »

Adult Swim In Trouble Over Black Jesus

24 July 2014 5:46 PM, PDT

Adult Swim is clearly trying to compete with MTV by shocking people. They have a new series called Black Jesus. It will feature an African American Jesus who lives in the ghetto and deals with all kind of people, including gangs. It will feature foul mouths and violence in the series, which is exactly what people are upset about. American Family Association spent today making their feelings very known in time before the August 7th premier takes place. Here is what they had to say about the show, which you can view the trailer down below.

The depiction of Jesus swearing and “using violent behavior is a new low, The blasphemous, irreverent and disrespectful show depicts him living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of the Lord. The garbage that passes for entertainment continues to disturb us, Even the three-minute trailer was too vile to watch, with multiple uses »

Big Bang Production Likely to be Delayed

24 July 2014 2:38 PM, PDT

Ouch, we have bad news for CBS! The Big Bang Theory has made very little progress in contract talks. The original cast is in hopes of landing a new deal where they will get a raise for the next 3 seasons that has been ordered. However, the network and production team do not want to give them the huge boost. Their current schedules places the start of production on July 30th, placing them on a tight schedule. Thus some are expecting a delay in the production starting due to this issue.

CBS previously stated that they were confident they would pull through on schedule. However, it looks like the main cast is not so sure if they are willing to budge. We hope that we are wrong, but things are not looking bright for The Big Bang Theory despite of the shining following it has. It will certainly be a stressful »

Simpsons To Go Online

23 July 2014 8:51 PM, PDT

Fox is finally allowing The Simpsons to go online. Fxx has acquired the rights to the series and will start syndicating it shortly with a marathon every single episode from all 25 seasons starting on August 21st. It will kick off their normal syndication schedule starting in September. However, they also have plans to allow fans to stream episodes online, Fxx has confirmed that they have plans to launch a website called Simpsons World that will also feature a set-top app that will fans to stream any and all episodes.

This is great news for the fans. The show has a cult following and it is shocking that they didn’t do it earlier. Especially since Fox could have sold those rights to Netflix or Amazon for a pretty penny. But we suppose it is nice that they kept it tight to Fxx, a sub channel within the family. It does show some, »

Jessica Biel Joins New Girl

23 July 2014 8:13 PM, PDT

Jessica Biel will be making a short return to TV this fall. She has landed a small role on Fox’s New Girl. She will be on the season premier of the show as Zooey Deschanel’s Jess enemy. Her character named Kat, who is the resident “hot” scientist who is running up against the awkward Jess for the same guy. We’re not sure if this will be a one time role for Jessica, but we hope to see more of their drama between the two through out the 4th season.

We are not sure how we feel about her joining the show in that role. She is talented, but it would be nice to see her play a different kind of a role. I think it would do her some good and maybe repair the rut she has put herself in. As for her going up against Zooey, »

Orphan Black Lands Comic Book Deal

23 July 2014 5:03 PM, PDT

Fans of Orphan Black will now see a comic book version of the tale. Idw Publishing announced the news with a target date of release sometime in Spring 2015. The comic book will tell completely new stories instead of retelling or continuing the story that is on TV. They will be working closely with the series producers and writers to keep it as close to the legit side of things as they can. Here is what Idw’s Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall had to say about the new project.

And as the second season has expanded the series in exciting new directions, that has only increased the amount of stories we’ll be able to tell in comic-book form

It seems like a good idea. However, it will be interesting in seeing how this story will parrell with the TV version. Since they desire for it to be 100% new, it will be »

The Aussie beauty is known for her role in Ally McBeal, thus knowing how to play a legal eagle. Hopefully she will find success with the role, especially since she needs some good news. Ellen DeGeneres announced the news for Portia with the following tweet.

So annoying when people brag on twitter & that’s why I’m not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on “Scandal”. Oops.

Congratulations to Portia! She has worked hard for her career and she hasn’t had much work since her marriage. We are happy to see she will return to TV and beyond her Netflix return. Maybe this will be a healthy »

Once Upon a Time To Cast Frozen’s Hans

22 July 2014 7:51 PM, PDT

ABC is serious about making Frozen a huge part of Once Upon a Time. We now hear that they will be adding Anna’s former boy toy Hans to the show. So far we have no idea on who will play the role of her former flame. His version of the character will show a wild man who longs to be king and he isn’t willing to go out without a fight. We are sure we can expect an evil streak from Hans on this awesome thriller.

As for who should play Hans, I am not sure. I think they have done well with their picks for the cast so far. So we can trust that they will find an amazing actor for Hans. I am just excited to see how they will turn this soon to be classic tale into a more mature and dark version of it. »

Louie Renewed For 5th Season

22 July 2014 4:31 PM, PDT

Louie went off air for a while so Louis C.K. between seasons a while go, making many fans wonder the future. Well now fans can be happy that they will not have a long wait. FX has announced Louie has been ordered for a fifth season, even though it will be a shorter one. Louis has agreed to a half cut to their season 4 order, with only 7 coming for the fifth episode. It is expected to premier sometime next year.

No word yet on what they will do with this season. Louie has been working on this show off and on. However, it looks like the show might be on its end. With such a short season and breaks between seasons, it appears that they are running out of ideas. We hope that we’re wrong, but you never know especially since shows now seem to have a typically shorter seasons than used to. »

Fargo Renewed for Second Season as Prequel

22 July 2014 9:12 AM, PDT

Fans of FX’s Fargo will be happy to know that will return for a second season. However, it comes with a twist! The series will return with the second season being the prequel for the first season. Ten new episodes with a whole new cast and story will most likely premier at the earliest in Fall of 2015. Season two of course will be influenced by season one. Allison Tolman and the rest of season one cast is not expected for this season, but have hopes for future returns on the series. The show will shoot next Jan through May, which gives them a matter of months to find the new cast.

We’re happy that it got renewed, but I am not so sure if a whole new cast is needed. It makes you wonder how will they be sure that fans will enjoy it as much as the first season? »

Xena’s Lucy Lawless Joins Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

21 July 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

Fans of 90s geek queen Lucy Lawless is ready to return as a hero. She has been confirmed to join Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. . This former Xena the Warrior Princess has been wowing fans since her big break. She has since stuck with her niche in such sci-fi or action shows since then, along with comedies. No word on how big of a role or how many episodes she is set to be on. We expect more info of her guest role will come to light at San Diego’s Comic Con.

We are happy to see that she is going return to TV. She has become a legend among her Xena the Warrior Princess, so it is nice to see that she is still respected. I just hope that she can continue on with this success. Especially since we have missed her awesomeness on TV. Hopefully she can »

Supernatural To Take Dean Down Dark Roads

21 July 2014 6:51 PM, PDT

Supernatural‘s executive producer Jeremy Carver recently caught up with TVLine. The topic was of course the subject of Dean’s new found dark side. Jeremy admits that dark days lay ahead of Dean as he struggles with this new issue. However, that doesn’t mean he will forever be this troubled soul that we will see at the start of the season. We will also see Sam living in fear and concern over his missing brother and business partner. They also touch on the subject of fan favorite Castiel. Here are a few of the highlights.

Dean being a demon here ties into a deeper mythology in the show, that being the Mark of Cain and Cain. That’s really one of the places we started to get the idea. The show has made a point of saying how rooted these brothers are in, frankly, the mythology of the world, »

Gotham To Have New Superhero

21 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT

Gotham may be the pre-story of Batman, but we will see a new superhero for this series. It will follow the lives of Jim Gordon and his partner back when they were detectives. Bruce Wayne of course is a child, but the criminals started their antics long before he came into the picture. Thus they need a superhero who can save the day back then and Fox is filling that void. However, the new superhero is not what you think it will be. In fact, it will be the city of Gotham. Here is what Bruno Heller explained about that idea.

You have to front-load the pilot with the best that you’ve got. You have to open big, We’ll be far more careful with how we roll out the villains and in what way…..If there is a superhero in the show, it’s [the city of] Gotham, It’s a larger-than-life character. »

Octavia Spencer’s Red Band Society Not About Death

21 July 2014 7:34 AM, PDT

Fox wanted to clear up a misconception about upcoming Red Band Society, which is a series that follows the lives of kids in the kids ward. With so many books and movies about kids’ death, it seemed like Fox wanted a piece of that pie. Now the network is clearing up that Octavia Spencer’s series is not about death. Executive producer Margaret Nagle opened up about the series at the Television Critics Association with the following comments on the show.

Yes, there are serious things that these kids are going to have to face. But it’s not a show that has a body count, Eighty-five percent of all kids that go to the hospital with any of the diseases in this situation recover,It’s really about that time that you spend in the hospital and how you learn…when you’re old enough to do something about it. »
