AMC companion series Fear The Walking Dead has struggled to turn the same heads as its mothership, even as Season 2 now unfurls with the same midseason cliffhanger that The Walking Dead has trafficked in for years. To wit, showrunner Dave Erickson acknowledges fan disappointment with the spinoff, as well where it stands with the main series’ significantly-advanced timeline.
For as often as Game of Thrones fans have questioned whether Season 6 may indeed spoil George R.R. Martin’s unpublished books, a major twist from Sunday’s “Blood of My Blood” may have answered a literary mystery sixteen years in the making. Now, writer Bryan Cogman opens up to explain that significant Sunday return, touching on whether or not to expect the same twist in The Winds of Winter or beyond.
The long wait for Doctor Who Season 10 somewhat abated by the recent minisode introducing Pearl Mackie as Peter Capaldi’s new companion “Bill,” but hers won’t be the other notable Doctor Who face returning for Season 10 in 2017. Yes, Missy will return for another round of menace, as confirmed by Michelle Gomez herself.
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may have succeeded against odds in bringing Garth Ennis classic Preacher to life on AMC, but can lightning strike twice to bring the artist’s superhero-smashing The Boys to Cinemax? A new interview sees Rogen on the decision to attack the superhero world (with or without Simon Pegg’s help), while Ennis says “Sick of superheroes? Because we are.”
Any Arrow fan well-remembers that the CW drama’s take on DC’s Suicide Squad seemingly went up in smoke over the course of Season 3, reportedly over corporate mandate not to compete with David Ayer’s upcoming film. Now, series star Willa Holland confirms as much, venting her frustration that DC TV can’t interact with the films the way Marvel or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. do.
Star Trek has put most of its energy into hyping the upcoming Beyond over its 2017 return to TV (or streaming, anyway), but that’s no reason to lose excitement. To wit, the CBS streaming series adds another notable name from Trek canon to its ranks, placing Star Trek: Voyager novelist and continuity expert Kirsten Beyer on the staff.
A few minor filming snags have kept a first look at Starz and Bryan Fuller’s adaptation of American Gods out of our hands a bit longer, but all will be worth the wait, per author Neil Gaiman. Not only is the casting apparently “shit hot,” but Gaiman gets equally colorful describing some of the fantasy drama’s first footage.
Game of Thrones has gone on a tear confirming and dispelling major theories that George R.R. Martin’s readers have scrutinized for years, with Sunday’s “Blood of My Blood” seemingly spoiling yet another book twist. Like last week’s Hodor reveal, however, a new featurette sees showrunners officially handing a cold twist to that major Stark return.
‘Game of Thrones’ spills very little “Blood of My Blood” for an otherwise hugely revelatory hour for book readers, but were the big showdowns in Kings’ Landing and with Sam’s family all flash, no substance? And what should we make of that huge Season 1 return? Find out in our full review!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. might not be the only Marvel series left on TV after the dismissal of both Agent Carter and Most Wanted, but fans may still wait months yet for fresh details on Season 4. The third season finale left plenty to pore over, but head back even further with an impressive (and spoilery!) VFX breakdown for the second half of Season 3!
