‘Star Trek’: Bryan Fuller’s New Series Will Tell Story ‘Like a Novel’

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS celebrated the 50th anniversary of “Star Trek” in Hall H at Comic Con Saturday, and moderator Bryan Fuller revealed a key detail about his upcoming CBS All Access revival series.

“It’s not going to be episodic,” Fuller said, noting that there have been 772 episodes of various “Star Trek” series. “We’re going to be telling stories like a novel.”

All five “Star Trek” series have been episodic in nature, featuring episodes whose stories were largely self-contained. Fuller’s comment indicates that the series will feature longer, ongoing storylines, along the lines of more contemporary telsevision drama series. That model, he said, will fit the show’s position as the first original series for CBS’s streaming service.

“Because it’s on CBS All Access, you’re not going to miss anything, because it’s right there at your fingertips,” Fuller said.

21 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

iZombie” isn’t returning until midseason, but at least Comic-Con gave us some scoop of what to expect.

Check out what we learned below. Warning: Minor spoilers below.

“Ficus” is her safe word. This season, Liv will eat a dominatrix’s brain, McIver revealed. “I’m going to have to clear my browser history repeatedly,” she added, talking about researching the role. When asked about her safe word, the EPs joked (or perhaps were serious) that it was “ficus.”

A “Major” reconnection?  “I would love Liv and Major to work out, but I feel right now that there’s bigger fish to fry,” McIver said about the on-again, off-again couple, and then added, »

‘Family Guy’ Won’t Do Any More ‘Star Wars’ Parodies, and Here’s Why

2 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Don’t expect to see any more “Star Wars” parodies from Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy.”

The show produced three “Star Wars” homages (2007’s “Blue Harvest,” 2009’s “Something, Something, Something Dark Side” and 2010’s “It’s a Trap!”) several years ago. But that was back before Disney acquired Lucasfilm and jumpstarted the franchise.

“The new regime is a little more difficult to deal with,” executive producer Alec Sulkin said. “Before we were just dealing with Lucasfilm. Seth [MacFarlane] had a good relationship with them. It’s not that Seth has a bad relationship with Disney, but they’re a bit more rigid.”

Executive producer Rich Appel said it was understandable, as “they’re a little more careful now that they’re rolling out new movies.”

‘Archer’ Season 8 Trailer Answers Season 7 Cliffhanger, Introduces ‘Dreamland’

22 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Spoiler Warning: The below reveals details for “Archer” Season 8 as well as the Season 7 finale.]

The big question following “Archer” Season 7 was the one everyone wanted answered at the FX comedy’s Comic-Con panel Friday afternoon, and the producers & cast wasted no time in letting everyone know what’s next for Archer: “Dreamland.”

At the end of Season 7, it appeared as though Archer died while solving the season-long mystery surrounding Veronica Deane. But the trailer shown to the Comic-Con audience (and not yet available online) found Archer still alive, but in a coma.

That doesn’t mean the season is free from tragedy. Following the death of voice actor George Coe — who played Archer’s butler, Woodhouse — Adam Reed decided it best to end his character’s arc rather than permanently recast him. The trailer showed the “Archer” characters dressed in black, attending Woodhouse’s funeral — all of them except Archer, who was revealed to be stuck in a coma for the three months following his shooting (aka, »

‘American Gods’: Neil Gaiman and Bryan Fuller on Whether You Need to Read the Book Before the Starz Show

4 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

What do you worship? That’s the question “American Gods” will be asking in 2017.

There aren’t many authors who have the kind of fandom that Neil Gaiman has, and “American Gods,” his novel about old-world deities trying to find purpose in the modern age, is a big part of that. That’s why expectations were already high when Starz and FremantleMedia announced that the book’s story would be adapted for television. Fans got more excited when it was later announced that “Hannibal” creator Bryan Fuller (who’s also behind CBS All Access’ upcoming new “Star Trek” series) would showrun with Michael Green.

If Gotham‘s Season 2 cliffhanger — featuring Bruce Wayne’s seemingly evil (or at least emo) doppelganger — had you scratching your head, well, star David Mazouz’s explanation may continue to leave you puzzled.

“The thing that I really want to make clear going into Season 3 is they’re two different people,” the actor said on Saturday at the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, “but for some reason they look exactly the same, have the same kind of mannerisms, and are basically almost the same person.
