Question: Any Grey’s Anatomy spoilers? —Sonja
Ausiello: Shonda Rhimes & Co. are launching a major trans storyline in 2015 focusing on a character named Travis, an attractive, good-humored thirtysomething man who will make the “believable transition” to a woman over time. Rumor has it the newbie will form a strong bond with a Grey Sloan staffer whose identity will remain unknown for now mostly because I’m not sure who it is. That’s right, there’s something I »

The directors of Doctor Who's latest series brought back the scares in a big way. Well, fear is a superpower...
Warning: contains spoilers for every episode of the eighth series of Doctor Who.
“Darker” and “edgier” are buzz words that have been applied to countless Hollywood sequels, but the eighth series actually lived up to that promise and by September, the tabloid press were dispensing think-pieces about whether or not it had become too scary for children (“scary” here standing in for “complicated” in Smith's era and “heretical” when David Tennant got a lift off a couple of angel robots in Voyage Of The Damned.)
All moral panics aside, this series brought back the scares in a big, bad way. »
As Halloween approaches, we were swapping ghost stories around the ol' People offices. Though we're based in New York, staffers here come from all over, and so it got us thinking about what we like to call the Haunted States of America: What "ghost story" defines your state? This infographic is assembled from a variety of sources - in some cases, it's the "most famous" ghost in each state, in others, it's the one we found the most interesting.

Premiering Dec. 16 at 8/7c, Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas retells the story of Buddy’s journey to New York City, combining aspects of both the original film and the Broadway stage production.
A fan-favorite character — not to mention dangling plot point — is returning to “Haven.” Steve Lund, who played James Cogan, aka the Colorado Kid, on Season 3 of the Syfy series, will return to reprise his role, TheWrap has learned. See photos: ‘American Horror Story’ to ‘True Detective': 8 Anthology Series That Are Changing TV “Haven” revolves around an FBI agent named Audrey Parker (Emily Rose), who shows up in the titular small coastal Maine town and ends up discovering she has deep ties to the town and its supernatural roots.

There are a lot of memorable guest shots from wrestlers on a number of classic and not so classic television shows. The Rock playing his father, Rocky Johnson (flanked by Ernie Ladd of all people as his manager) on That ’70s Show was an inspired bit of casting and is a well-remembered episode of the show. He wasn’t a polished actor yet, to say the least Vader becoming a recurring character on Boy Meets World as a fictionalized version of himself has become a lasting part of his legacy, a cleverly written and cast part that allowed him to laugh at himself.
Some wrestlers, like Edge (well, he prefers Adam Copeland now) have found second careers, as he’s developed a nice recurring spot on Haven. Bret Hart had what looked like a promising acting career until the ’90s version of Lonesome Dove was cancelled. And of »

Nathan is still determined to bring Audrey back, but in the next episode of Syfy's “Haven,” Mara is using their shared history to her advantage. The already complicated relationship between Nathan (Lucas Bryant) and Mara (Emily Rose) — the evil being who's taken over his partner's body — may be taking another turn, as evidenced in this exclusive clip (above) from Thursday's episode, titled “Spotlight.” Also read: ‘Haven’ Showrunners Preview Season 5's ‘Fight’ for Audrey's Soul, Tease Colorado Kid's Return After Audrey made a brief appearance at the end of last week's episode, Nathan has decided to hide Mara — chained up, »

Last year, despite a decline in ratings, Syfy renewed Haven for a super-sized fifth season. Many have suspected that this will mean the end for the TV show. Will the ratings fall, ensuring that the show will be cancelled, or will they rise and lead to a season six renewal? Stay tuned.
On Haven, FBI Agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) and Officer Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant) investigate strange occurrences in the small town of Haven, Maine. Others in the cast include Emma Lahana, Eric Balfour, Richard Donat, John Dunsworth, and Adam Copeland.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Strain, Sons of Anarchy, Graceland and Project Runway!
1 | During that super-awkward sex scene on The Strain, was there really not a single editor who noticed that Ephraim’s jacket is on in one shot, then off in the next — without him putting Nora down? And did Gus actually throw away the guard’s gun after escaping the prison transport? He didn’t suspect he’d, you know, need it again, with these creatures on the streets? »
Season 4 of Syfy's “Haven” left off with the show's protagonist apparently turned into a major new antagonist with the upcoming fifth season, not surprisingly, focusing primarily on how to get her back. “The heart and soul of ‘Haven’ is Audrey Parker,” the show's executive producer Gabrielle Stanton told TheWrap. But Audrey (Emily Rose) is a bit lost as Season 5 opens with her as a new incarnation who calls herself Mara. At the end of Season 4, Colin Ferguson's character William was banished to another dimension through a portal in the town's lighthouse — though not before bringing Mara out from »

For some, the fourth season of Haven might have started going a little goofy. For others, at least it moved somewhat away from the episodic focus, and paid attention to bigger issues. For still others, the show is really getting good. Wherever you fall, you don’t want to miss the premiere of the fifth season, and yes, even if you are among those who thought the show was not doing its best last year.
Things are going to be interesting right from the start, because it looks as though perhaps Audrey isn’t returning, and this may turn into the Mara show. Well, it doesn’t seem especially likely that this is a permanent direction the show will go, but who knows?
Take a look at the video below, and make sure you catch this one this Thursday!

Stephen King has long been the source for TV mini-series like The Stand and The Tommyknockers, but in recent years, his fiction has provided the jumping off point for several full series like Haven and Under The Dome. Now, it looks like another project will be making it to CBS in the form of The Things They Left Behind. The series, based on the short story of the same name, will be produced by Arrow's Greg Berlanti and Seth Grahame-Smith. Grahame-Smith, author of Pride And Prejudice And »

And as if that wasn’t enough, there are also a handful of indie horror titles getting released including Blood Glacier, Aftermath, Zombex, The Possession of Michael King and Jersey Shore Massacre and BrinkVision is also releasing a limited edition DVD of Sonno Profondo after the Giallo-esque film found much success on the festival circuit in 2013.

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? This 18th century English romance is about Dido Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a biracial woman raised by her aristocratic great uncle and aunt, Lord and Lady Mansfield. She grows up alongside her cousin Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) as equals and best friends, but as they come of age, their differences become all too apparent -- to each other and to their would-be suitors. Meanwhile, Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) is facing a trial as Lord Chief Justice of England that could change the future of slavery. Will Dido find love on her own terms?
Why We're In: It's an elegant period piece perfect for Jane Austen fans, and it's a subtle but effective examination of the intersection of class and race in 18th century England. Mbatha-Raw is fantastic, and director Amma Asante has an excellent eye for detail.
