Game of Thrones left us with quite a few upsets by Season 6 finale “The Winds of Winter,” though certain reappearances more than ever exacerbated running questions of how quickly characters traverse the map. Now, writer-producer Bryan Cogman offers a frank answer to said riddle, one which sadly never ends with Arya’s best rendition of “I’m On A Boat.”

Among the many, many new series arriving on Netflix this year, we’re perhaps most eager for a look at Baz Lurhmann’s ‘70s hip-hop drama The Get Down, its first episodes due to arrive in August. Even without a full first season to premiere, the latest trailer makes The Get Down a strong contender for the year’s most electric.

We’re astonishingly late into the year to have no knowledge of American Horror Story Season 6's central theme, but toss another familiar face onto its cast. Cheyenne Jackson has confirmed his return for the next American Horror Story, whatever it is, whenever it takes place, and whoever else will join him.
Welp, if ever you wanted to overload on TV superheros, have we got a Comic-Con for you! Warner Bros. TV has officially loaded up on 21 series headed to San Diego this year, from Flash to Supergirl to Powerless, Justice League Action, and a few non-superhero series like The Big Bang Theory, The 100, and Animaniacs. You may have heard of them.
As with Daredevil himself, Jon Bertnthal’s Frank Castle didn’t properly adopt the mantle of The Punisher until late in Season 2, but might the character change his ways in time for the confirmed spinoff? Bernthal himself says the Frank Castle we followed through Daredevil was very much not “The Punisher” as fans know him, though that could certainly change.
And lo, Game of Thrones has come to yet another end with last night’s “The Winds of Winter,” an explosive climax with a higher body count than usual, thanks to Cersei’s fiery wiles. One death certainly hit harder than all the rest, though apparently the series-long star had asked for an even earlier end to their character.
‘Game of Thrones’ lit a wildfire under “The Winds of Winter” finale but did our Season 6 end spend more time setting up the endgame than making its big twists worthwhile? And should we consider the mother of all Jon Snow fan-theories confirmed? Find out in our full review!
Aaron Sorkin has always been a bit ahead of the game. Back in the days when television was still considered a place for actors to go when their film career had dried up, Sorkin proved himself to be medium agnostic, moving between film (A Few Good Men, The American President) and television (Sports Night, The West Wing) without any drop in quality or prestige. So it shouldn’t be too surprising that Sorkin is once again looking at an emerging format, this time the virtual classroom, to share some of the things he has learned over his career.
The first season of FX’s Fargo established the series as an entity independent from the film, without necessarily promising a sequel. Along came Season 2 to push Fargo closer to an anthology model, but according to creator Noah Hawley, if Season 3 doesn’t end up the final Fargo chapter, they may follow Louis C.K.’s practice of delaying new seasons until a worthy idea surfaces.
