As we head closer and closer to the end of the TV season, we’re also getting closer and closer to the season finales of some of your favorite shows, including ABC’s Castle, which will be finishing up its seventh season next month. While not many details are known about the finale, aside from its title, “Hollander’s Woods,” we do have a fresh new piece of intel: Fringe and The Wire alum Lance Reddick will be guest starring in the Castle Season 7 finale. Castle star Penny Johnson Jerald broke the casting news when she posted a photo with Reddick on the Castle set yesterday. TVLine has since confirmed with an ABC rep that Reddick will indeed be appearing in the show’s Season 7 finale; however, details about the character the actor will be playing are being kept under wraps (like much of the other information regarding the finale) for some reason. »

Perhaps the Castle finale takes place in an alt-universe?

Previously, showrunner David Amann told »
According to The Wrap, he’s been called in to discuss plenty of different geek and franchise pictures, but has been holding off for something he feels personally invested in.
My mind is a little boggled by the fact that he’s chosen The Power Rangers. This is the project that has a special place in his heart? At least we can make a good guess at his approximate age.
The script for this new film has been written by Ashley Miller »

Henry gets handed a head start to solving this week's Forever mystery, in the form of a foot...
This review contains spoilers.
1.20 Best Foot Forward
If I jave one criticism of Forever, it's that it has on occasion a tendency to drop into Murder She Wrote-mode. I mention that show because it often relied rather heavily on simplistic caricatures and stereotypes for the guest stars to play. And this story, set in the word of ballet is knee-deep in both those things, with bitchy ballerinas and uncaring creative directors aplenty.
That disappointed me somewhat, as did the fact that, after the surgically removed foot is found before the ballet's third act, Henry never says ‘the game’s afoot’ in true Sherlockian style. But you can’t have everything, can you?
There was one part of this whole mystery that was worth watching it for, and that was where Henry revealed »

Just yesterday (in an article for Bloodline) I was lamenting that all of these good shows seem to be piling up and I'm running out of time to watch them. There's just so much good TV out there that it's an embarrassment of riches. My newest case in point is this Salem Season 2 trailer, a clip that gives us a much better look at what's to come from the show than either the atmospheric teaser or recent trailer was able to provide. Lots of blood, witches and general creepiness ensue. And I haven't even see the first season yet. Check out the extended Salem Season 2 trailer below. The show also stars Janet Montgomery and Shane West (along with guest stars Lucy Lawless and Stuart Townsend) and will return to Wgn on Sunday, April 5th at 10 p.m. Et. Here's the official synopsis for Salem Season 2: From creators, writers and executive producers Brannon Braga (“Cosmos, »

For nine years, from 1993 through 2002, Friday was the night to stay home or at the least to make sure your favorite television recorder was programmed correctly.
I’m talking about The X-Files, created by Chris Carter and which starred then relatively unknown actors David Duchovny as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder, an Oxford-trained behavioral psychologist, and Gillian Anderson as FBI Special Agent Dana Scully, an M.D. specializing in forensic medicine. Together they investigated the so-called “X-Files” of the FBI: cases that involved crimes on the margins of “normal,” paranormal activities, and UFO goings-on.
It became the Fox (no pun intended) network’s highest rated show and won numerous awards over its original lifetimes, including 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes, and a Peabody Award over its run; it also received nominations and wins from the Directors Guild, the Writers Guild the Screen Actors Guild, the Television Critics Association, and the Saturn Awards. »

It’s almost too easy to declare that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson “rocked” as host of this week’s Saturday Night Live — but that doesn’t mean such a statement would be inaccurate.
In fact, it says a lot about the Furious 7 star’s comedic chops that the evening’s worst sketches either gave him absolutely nothing to do (“Cooking With Paul”) or didn’t include him at all (“The Circus”).
Johnson proved so fearlessly committed to his punch lines that he even scored a few laughs »
A recurring feature in which we ask your favorite stars to reminisce about past gigs

And as such, when you approach him on the street, he knows exactly what you want to talk about.

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.
Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

A review of tonight's "Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as it's a little early for Taco Tuesday... "Love in the Time of Hydra" doesn't explain exactly who is funding Real Shield (to the point where they have their own helicarrier, which Coulson's group would kill for), what kind of authority they have within the U.S. government, how neither Coulson nor Talbot seems to know they exist, or any other pesky details. It does, however, explain why this group, led by Edward James Olmos' Robert Gonzales(*), feels the need to have their own group independent of Nick Fury's desires. And it presents them as good guys who just differ on certain philosophical issues from our heroes. That's a change from the Hydra arc introduced in "Winter Soldier," and hero vs. hero conflicts can often be more interesting than hero vs. villain. (There's a reason one »

Celebrity stylist Derek Warburton is setting the record straight on who the real diva in the Knowles family is! toofab's Candice Brock chatted with the TV personality about working with Beyonce, the biggest trends for spring and summer, and his charity How To Be Derek Fabulous. Derek began his career as a makeup artist in Italy, before eventually moving to Miami to work at a styling firm with clients like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Last summer at press tour, I sat down with Chris Carter to discuss his new Amazon drama "The After," but my main interest was in asking him about another show he had created: "The X-Files." We spent 15 minutes talking about the legacy of that show, how he feels the TV business has changed in the dozen-odd years since it ended, and how he might be applying some of the lessons he learned there to this new project. When Amazon pulled the plug on "The After" before a second episode was even shot, I suddenly had 15 minutes of conversation with no news peg, and I figured this would just be something for my personal archives. Then Fox announced today that Carter, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson would be reuniting for a six-episode "X-Files" limited series, and I had the perfect context in which to finally transcribe that recording. We talk briefly about "The After" here, »

John Litvack, the experienced WB Network executive who helped teach J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, Greg Berlanti and others how to run television series, died March 21 at a long-term care facility in Los Angeles of complications following heart surgery. He was 69 and had been in failing health since undergoing triple-bypass surgery in January.
Litvack was considered an elder statesman during his 1997-2004 run as head of scheduling and current programming at the WB Network. Earlier in his career he’d held exec posts at CBS, NBC and Disney TV. He spoke to creatives from experience thanks to the time he spent time behind the camera as a director of soap operas in the 1970s and as a co-exec producer of “Hill Street Blues” in the NBC drama’s final season.
“He knew story,” said Jordan Levin, the former WB Network president who also worked with Litvack at Disney in the early 1990s. »
