ABC's "Once Upon a Time" is going to be very "Brave" in Season 5. The cast took to Comic-Con this weekend to talk about the new season -- which starts September 27 -- and there was a sneak peek introducing Merida, who will be played by Scottish lass Amy Mason.

While the History channel has mostly earned its reputation on the basis of documenting factual events, the channel has recently also delved into original scripted programming. One of their most notable forays into the latter has been Vikings, a series that focuses on the saga of Ragnar Lothbrok, a legendary figure in viking lore. The show is created by Camelot and The Tudors‘ Michael Hirst, and has been renewed for a fourth season earlier this year.
Following the show’s renewal, the Vikings panel at the San Diego Comic-Con revealed a trailer for the new season. Travis Fimmel is set to return once again in the lead role, and the new season was confirmed to air in 2016, though an official premiere date has yet to be announced. The trailer can be seen below, and our reviews of the show’s second season can be read here.

It’s Saturday night. BBC 1 is showing Doctor Who. It does this a lot, generally speaking, and has done on and off (sometimes very off) for over fifty years. When the show returned in 2005 it brought with it the realisation that there was a huge family audience un-catered for on Saturday nights, and unfortunately Doctor Who was only on air for a quarter of the year, so it couldn’t do it all by itself.
ITV quickly realised it needed to attract that audience too, and while it had gameshows that dominated the schedules it didn’t have anything like Buck Rogers In The 25th Century or The A Team to put up against the BBC this time. And time was of the essence: new shows had »

In the meantime, there's a little teaser trailer to introduce us to the quaint British town of Pagford. It all looks veddy proper and jolly indeed, but naturally there are all sorts of grown-up, non-wizard-y secrets lurking just below the surface. However, it probably doesn't help that Dumbledore is part of the ensemble cast. Just saying. It also stars Rory Kinnear, Emily Bevan, Julia McKenzie, Keeley Hawes, Monica Dolan, and Abigail Lawrie. The adaptation was written by Sarah Phelps, who also penned scripts for "Great Expectations," "Camelot," and "EastEnders."
"The Casual Vacancy" was J.K. Rowling's first novel outside of the "Harry Potter" series. Her second, "The Cuckoo's Calling," was released under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, although soon enough the author's real identity was revealed. »
