Each week, HitFix Harpy will be hosting the "Game of Thrones" book club. A safe space where readers of "A Song of Ice and Fire" can come to dissect the changes to the series and debate what will happen next. All without fear they'll accidentally spoil something for non-readers. ************ Warning: Spoilers All The Way Through "A Dance With Dragons" Beyond This Point. Abandon All Hope Of Ignorance, Ye Who Enter Here. Everything is happening So Much. When “Game of Thrones” pulled on the knotty bits of thread in George R.R. Martin’s plot, the narrative quickly unraveled into something barely recognizable. It’s not bad, just drastically different and each new episode brings fans further and further away from Westeros Prime. #1 - Aemon meets the Old gods and the New and Samwell is adrift.

Castle season 7 bows out on a sentimental note, and lacking in suspense. But here's hoping that season 8 will be an improvement...

One of the things about trailers and previews (and other glimpses of television and film stories to come) is that they are rife with misdirection—and rightly so. If you are too upfront with the audience about what’s going to happen in the movie you are promoting, then there’s really no reason to see it in the first place. Anyone who saw the trailer for 1999’s Double Jeopardy, starring Tommy Lee Jones and Ashley Judd, could have skipped pretty much the entire film, since there was little in the movie that wasn’t in, or loudly telegraphed by, the previews. Quarantine suffered from another but related problem. The most shocking scene from the trailer—the one where something grabs a terrified »

The wry, fun and endearingly tongue-in-cheek American drama Castle returns to British screens this week (9pm, Alibi). But with the titular thriller writer (played by Nathan Fillion) and NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) inescapably now a crime-fighting couple, will their impending nuptials ruin the show or take it in an unexpected direction?

As Dancing With the Stars kicked off its 20th season finale, there was hardly anything separating the three finalists from one another.
Sure, there were eight points keeping Noah Galloway from sharing the top of the leaderboard with Riker and Rumer. But, as Tom Bergeron pointed out during last week’s semifinals, each of the remaining three couples has alternately been the strongest contestants of the week or one step from elimination throughout Season 20.

Ausiello: Borth is staying on as Catherine… at least for a little while, in part because next season will open with the “first dance” at Kono and Adam’s wedding. “We’ll miss the actual vows, but we’ll come in on them being introduced as husband and wife,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov tells TVLine. As for Borth’s status, »
For a second, let’s imagine that The Following wasn’t cancelled, and that 2016 would see the return of Ryan Hardy and his vendetta against a mysterious organization of super-rich serial killers (or whatever Campbell was hinting at in Monday’s series finale).
What would that plot have looked like? TVLine asked executive producer/co-showrunner Alexi Hawley to give us a sneak peek at a Following that never was.

Scream Queens, which received a new trailer this week.
USA Network has formally given a series order to Queen of the South. The series will be based on the 2002 Spanish novel La Raina Del Sur by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, which has already been adapted into a Spanish-language telenovela, and will star City of God and Predators‘ Alice Braga in the lead role of Teresa Mendoza. The series synopsis is as follows.
Queen Of The South tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza (Braga). When her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico, Teresa is forced to go on the run and seek refuge in America, where she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run. In the process, she learns the tools of the trade and strategically positions herself to become the leader of the Cartel. »

Yikes. That second bonus scene was a doozy.
ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wrapped its sophomore run on Tuesday night with a two-hour finale that pitted agents against Inhumans, added at least four (!) deaths to TVLine’s May Sweeps Scorecard, planted a seed for a future Marvel movie and, in that final, shocking sequence, had some alien goo gobble up one of our favorites.

ABC continues its commitment to great storytelling with the announcement of its 2015-16 slate of programming, including the addition of 10 new series. Paul Lee, president, ABC Entertainment Group, will unveil the network's new lineup to the advertising and media communities this afternoon at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall. Here's what Paul Lee had to say in a statement.
"Our new slate of shows continues the momentum from last year. ABC was the most buzzed about network, and the only major network to hold on to its audience and to grow in the target demo. Our 2015-16 schedule, with new shows and returning favorites that reflect our commitment to world-class storytelling, will solidify ABC's place as the network that raises the bar for what viewers expect from broadcast television.

Good news, Castle fans: there’s officially no reason to worry anymore. Even though it seemed virtually impossible that the show would continue on to Season 8 without one half of its central couple, it has now been confirmed that Stana Katic will be back as Kate Beckett for Castle‘s eighth season. Katic, who had not yet signed on for an eighth season of the ABC drama at the time it had been renewed by the network, just inked a one-year deal that will keep her on the series for at least one more season. Her decision also comes as in the midst of many major behind-the-scenes changes for Castle, the biggest one being the departure of showrunner David Amann, who will be replaced by two of the series’ writers, Terence Paul Winter and Alexi Hawley, as the pair take over as co-showrunners, “I’m so pleased to announce that, »

ABC has confirmed that Stana Katic has closed her deal to return as Kate Beckett in "Castle" for its upcoming eighth season. Both she and co-star Nathan Fillion required new contracts as their original ones expired at the end of this season.
Fillion had already committed to come back but Stanic's return came down to the wire in the lead up to this morning's upfront presentation. Now though, it's set and she will be returning, though the series itself is transitioning to new show runners Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter. [Source: Deadline]
Along with announcing that the second season of "Agent Carter" will once again air during the "Agents of Shield" mid-season hiatus in the coming new TV season, ABC has also unveiled a new synopsis for the series which confirms a location change for the show:

Different network executives have different buzzwords or phrases they like to lean on at upfront time. When Les Moonves was more day-to-day with CBS primetime, for instance, he loved to pepper his remarks to the press and advertisers with "make no mistake" and "clearly." For the last few years, ABC's Paul Lee has gone strong with "delicious" to describe anything he likes. But the Word of the Day for Lee's press call to discuss next season's schedule (Fienberg has all the details here) was "gap," as Lee talked about all the timeslots that will be shared next season, as one show fills the gap while another takes a break at mid-season. Among the partners in time: "Agent Carter" once again minding the gap for "Agents of Shield" on Tuesdays at 9, the surprising return of "Galavant" to occupy the "Once Upon a Time" slot on Sundays at 8, "Secrets & Lies" shifting to »

The fact that Castle‘s Stana Katic only renewed her contract for one more year is not necessarily a sign that the procedural in turn will be fitted with a toe tag at the end of Season 8. Nor has the recent death of McDreamy assigned an expiration date to Grey’s Anatomy, which was just picked up for Season 12.
