Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 has opened up quite a bit in recent weeks to show off both its 'Agent Carter' cameo and a few new villains, but things have been notably light on the H-word, specifically the Hydra presence the series worked so hard to conceal last season. Well, out of the "Shadows" and into the light, as new photos from the September 23 premiere put both Peggy Carter and Hydra back in action!
Marvel's upcoming 'Daredevil' Netflix series recently promised to unveil its horned hero at New York Comic-Con, but that hasn't stopped the 2015 superhero drama from adding to its ranks before the big show. 'The Leftovers' star Scott Glenn will play Marvel martial artist "Stick," best known as teacher and blind mentor to the man without fear, Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock.
As if the past summer hadn't cemented 'The Simpsons' stranglehold on all reality, the past weekend saw the long-running FOX animated comedy taking over the Hollywood Bowl for a star-studded concert of Springfield's favorite musical numbers. Everyone from Conan O'Brien to Jon Lovitz showed up to belt out famous tunes, and we've compiled every cromulent number in one place just for you!
Last week 'SNL' season 40 saw one of its highest-profile re-toolings yet, as Weekend Update host Cecily Strong was replaced by writer Michael Che, the first instance of two men running the desk. Now, with three season 39 cast members already let go, 'SNL' has added comedian Pete Davidson to its ranks, in the process confirming yet another departure from the long-running NBC sketch comedy show's roster.
Last week we were shocked to learn that 'The Legend of Korra' would debut its fourth book "Balance" on October 3, just over a month after the season 3 finale, and the first to air entirely on Nickelodeon streaming. Mixed reception though the announcement brought, the 'Korra' creators have even better tidings to offer with their upcoming New York Comic-Con 2014 panel, and a brand-new image of Korra's new look in season 4!
Last Thursday saw a uniquely surprising shift in 'SNL''s upcoming 40th anniversary season, as senior "Weekend Update" host Cecily Strong was relieved from the desk, and replaced with writer Michael Che alongside head writer Colin Jost. Many had taken the swap as an unfair slight against Strong in favor of Jost's writer seniority, though now Strong herself has spoken out on her feelings toward the "Weekend Update" shakeup.
We'd known that 'SNL' would need some additional fine-tuning after shedding some of the dead weight of season 39, but where writer Colin Jost had replaced "Weekend Update"s departed Seth Meyers alongside Cecily Strong, an unexpected shakeup has emerged.

Were you unsatisfied with the likes of 'Arrow,' 'The Flash,' 'Gotham,' 'Constantine' and potentially 'Supergirl' solidifying DC's grip on live-action TV superheroes? Good news! According to a new report, DC and Warner Bros. have pitched a 'Titans' TV series (yes, those Titans), which as we speak nears a pilot order at TNT. Yes, TNT.
Three seasons in, we've gotten accustomed to the fact that FX's 'American Horror Story' reboots year after year with its cast in different roles of a new story. And while this year's 'Freak Show' follows the same trend, Ryan Murphy's horror franchise will at last extend a bit of connective tissue between universes, bringing a fan-favorite 'American Horror Story: Asylum' character back into the fold.
NBC's 'Hannibal' served its viewers a tantalizing, if terrifying shock by the climax of season 2 finale "Mizumono," but it seems series creator Bryan Fuller will follow through on one of the bigger twists in a major way. Not only will 'X-Files' vet Gillian Anderson return to 'Hannibal' season 3 in the role of Dr. Bedelia du Maurier, but the good Dr. Lecter's traveling companion will do so as a series regular!
