‘Orphan Black’ Showrunner on Final Season: ‘It’s Better to Cancel Yourself’
“We sort of had five seasons in mind, and the thing that we just didn’t want to do is get kind of soft around the middle,” said executive producer and co-creator Graeme Manson. “We think that it’s better to cancel yourself than to get canceled, than to peter out.”
Manson and fellow co-creator and executive producer John Fawcett said there is a set ending that they and the writers are working toward.
“As much as planning the final season is bittersweet, the fun is knowing the ending, because we’ve known it for a really long time,” Fawcett said.

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

Ghost Rider is Headed to ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’
The news of Ghost Rider’s debut comes after a couple months of speculation, thanks to numerous ads, that the character would be showing up. This Ghost Rider, however, will be different than the one moviegoers are used to. The character that will appear in the show will be a version that first appeared in the Marvel Now! comic version.
Rather than the Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider, played in two films by Nic Cage, this Ghost Rider’s name is Robbie Reyes. Reyes becomes the Ghost Rider after being gunned down in the street and revived by the ghost of his uncle and Satanic serial killer. The high schooler has to juggle satiating the Spirit of Vengence’s thirst for murder with homework and taking care of his developmentally disabled brother Gabe.
This is also the first time that the character will be a part of »

‘Game of Thrones’ Cast Reveals Lighter Side in Blooper Reel (Watch)
On “Game of Thrones,” it’s a fierce battle for the Iron Throne, but during the “Games of Thrones” panel at Comic-Con, fans got treated to a Season 6 blooper reel that proved that not everything is so serious on the HBO drama.
Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister opens the blooper reel with some major struggles, chewing up the word benevolent — much to the amusement of the usually somber Grey Worm.
Although “Game of Thrones” is known for its exemplary final product, not everything is a “one-take” wonder. Take for instance The Hound, played by Rory McCann, struggling to chop a measly chunk of wood during a scene with special guest star Ian McShane. Surely Sandor Clegane is much more impressive than this!
Emilia Clarke was unfortunately also a victim. Daenerys’ guttural Dothraki proved to be a harder task than working with a fake dragon and a green screen.
And last but not least, there »

Joss Whedon’s Sermon On The Con: “The Dialogue Between Audiences And Studios Is Defaulting”
When it comes to his annual Comic-Con talk, Joss Whedon has traversed everything from comparing America to Tsarist Russia to dispensing life advice. This year as he rolled through fans questions, he expressed how hard it is for audiences to discover fresh stories on TV and movies without being spoon-fed by studios. When Whedon was a kid, he’d go to the movies without really knowing much about what was on the marquee. It was always a wonderful discovery for him. But that’s… »
