Riverdale is setting the stage for another musical episode! After putting on a production of Carrie: The Musical during season two, the show will be taking on Heathers: The Musical, based on the 1989 teen film, this time around. The episode will air on March 20 and feature nine songs from the off-Broadway musical.

On Thursday, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa gave a glimpse of the cast list, which includes Veronica (Camila Mendes), Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch), and Betty (Lili Reinhart) as the three Heathers. "Last year, we had a blast doing Carrie," Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement. "This year, we wanted to honor another iconic teen movie. Heathers: The Musical is Big Fun, with great roles for the Riverdale kids."

And while Jughead (Cole Sprouse) didn't participate in any of the numbers last season, Aguirre-Sacasa added that "everyone is singing" this time around!

General Hospital Story Line Predictions

General Hospital fans aren’t immune to some seriously shocking plot line situations. It makes us think this year will continue to be the kind of year in which we have to watch things unfold in a way that won’t make much sense as a whole. But, there’s a lot we don’t know will happen. We do have some predictions, however, and we have something to say that might just shock everyone. But, for now, we just want to recap some of the major stuff that happened last year when things were not as they seemed. Drew was not Jason, and

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Marvelous Rachel Brosnahan’s Debut Features Solid Sketches

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Marvelous Rachel Brosnahan’s Debut Features Solid Sketches
It’s like the new saying goes: New year, new “SNL.” Well, to be fair, it’s also kind of the same “SNL” — especially when considering what “the same ‘SNL’” means these days, on a larger front — but it is the first episode of 2019, which make it technically correct. (Which is the best kind of correct.)

And while “SNL” ended 2018 with a (surprisingly only) two-time guest host who seemed like an old pro at the whole thing (Matt Damon), 2019 begins with a first-time guest host and one with a much less recognizable name — “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” leading actress Rachel Brosnahan.

But she’s a Golden Globe and Emmy award winner, you know.

Host: Rachel Brosnahan

Given that scary time when the singing opening monologue became the ultimate crutch for this show, at first this monologue devolving right into that did not bode at that well. But then it did

Supergirl EPs Preview Kara's Brewing War With the Deo — Watch Sneak Peek

Now that Kara’s connection to the Deo has been severed, she’s adding one more enemy to her ever-growing list when Supergirl returns tonight (The CW, 8/7c). And as you’ll see in TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek, neither one of them is willing to back down.

This new enemy is none other than Colonel Haley, who not only questions the Girl of Steel’s usefulness but also attempts to ban her from an alien-related crime scene. “I didn’t come here because of the Deo,” Supergirl tells her. “I came here because people needed help. … Just because I

Benedict Cumberbatch on the ‘Brexit’ Movie That Had to Happen Now

Benedict Cumberbatch on the ‘Brexit’ Movie That Had to Happen Now
Three days before shooting started was when Benedict Cumberbatch really committed to the Brexit movie. Sitting in his house with director Toby Haynes, the Oscar nominee, global superstar, and $600 million-face of Marvel’s Dr. Strange said four words he couldn’t walk back: “Take off the hair.”

“We were nibbling away at his hairline, taking bits off here and there, and suddenly he just looks really weird,” Haynes said in an interview with IndieWire. “The makeup artist had a wig prepared, but the only way the wig would work is if we shaved his head. […] I looked at Benedict, he looked at me, and he said, ‘Take it off. Take off the hair.'”

“It was a bit crushing at the time,” Cumberbatch said, chuckling. “I had what’s called a ‘no hawk’ — no hair around the middle, and then I had my normal hair at the sides. Then we

‘American Gods’ Season 2 Trailer: The Strange, Epic Series Returns at Last

Starz has released the trailer for “American Gods” Season Two, which arrives after a long delay and much uncertainty. The television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s bestselling novel premiered just under two years ago, earning largely positive reviews in its telling of the conflict between the Old and New Gods. Ricky Whittle and Ian McShane star as Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday, respectively, and are backed by a large ensemble cast that will include Gillian Anderson this time around. Watch the trailer below.

Here’s the synopsis: “We were forged in God’s image, but the Gods are also made in ours — and in Season Two the battle moves inexorably toward crisis point as the destinies of gods and men collide. While Mr. World plots revenge for the attack against him in Season One, Shadow throws in his lot with Wednesday’s attempt to convince the Old Gods of the case for full-out war,

The Bold and the Beautiful Story Line Predictions

The Bold and the Beautiful fans are beginning this new year with some serious sadness. We thought the end of the year was bringing with it beautiful things as families came together, people made their lives right, and people seemed to be getting along for the first time in a long time. However, we do think that the writers of this show did a wonderful job of stripping us from this situation and in a quick and efficient manner as it was all made possible by those who are not here for the right reasons. We have to assume that

Starz Releases ‘American Gods’ Season 2 Trailer (Watch)

Starz has released a second season trailer for “American Gods,” which returns to the cabler Mar. 10, depicting the brewing war between Gods old and new in the series based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name.

“When people first came to America they brought us with them,” the trailer begins, flashing images of Old Gods including Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) and Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones).

Quickly, the images become more modern and Sarah McLachlan’s “Dear God” plays. “Gradually they abandoned us,” the voiceover continues. “Now there are new Gods growing in America, and they want to destroy us.

American Gods Season 2 Trailer: For Old Gods and New, It's 'Time to Ride'

American Gods Season 2 Trailer: For Old Gods and New, It's 'Time to Ride'
We’re not entirely sure it’s Shadow who’s receiving multiple, dire warnings in the newly released American Gods Season 2 trailer, but if so, we suggest he heeds them — and quickly.

Because when Laura says “He is dangerous. I need you to believe that” and Mad Sweeney cautions “There’s always a cost with him. You just haven’t paid it yet,” who else could they be talking about other than the (literally) bigger than life Mr. Wednesday?

Indeed, the manipulative Old God himself looms large over the nearly two-minute spot, which previews the Starz drama’s Sunday, March 10 (8/7c) return.

Rachel Brosnahan Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best & Worst Sketches

Rachel Brosnahan Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best & Worst Sketches
Rachel Brosnahan already has an Emmy for her starring role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Will she earn a second golden lady for her Saturday Night Live hosting debut?

The actress proved herself a fine host, though she was never given the flashy showcase that she deserved. She was even relegated to a supporting role in a sketch that spoofed her critically acclaimed Amazon comedy.

An underwhelming song-and-dance monologue was followed by a run of mostly mediocre skits, though there were a few highlights. What follows are my picks for the best and worst sketches.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Carla Gugino

Carla Gugino is honestly one of those individuals that you find yourself getting used to when she shows up for a lengthy period of time or for a movie that’s lauded as something special, but then she seems to disappear the moment you really start to like her. That’s not entirely accurate since she never really goes anywhere, but she does take on roles in films that will at times kind of hide her from the public simply because they’re independent films or because she’s more of a bit-player and isn’t meant to be seen as much. But when she

Young and the Restless Story Line Predictions

Young and the Restless fans are watching this new year start with as much confusion as we watched the past year go by. There are too many story lines going on at one time to make much sense, but that’s never stopped the show before. We have to admit that while we don’t always get what they are looking to do around Genoa City, we do appreciate that they keep us on our toes so often. But, that comes at a price. One price we pay is wondering what might happen, and then being shocked at the realization that it

After sitting out the live sketches of the final episode of “Saturday Night Live” in 2018, cast member Pete Davidson kicked off the first episode of the new year right from the cold open.

The sketch was a “Deal or No Deal: Government Shutdown Edition” that of course put guest player Alec Baldwin front and center as Donald Trump, just hours after the real-life president went on television to tell the American people he wanted to make a deal to end the shutdown. The reason the deal came in the form of a reality show, explained host Steve Harvey (played by
