Haircuts are great, but Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. just stepped up Season 3 production with an UnREAL twist. House of Cards and Entourage alum Constance Zimmer will square off against Coulson and his Secret Warriors as a brand-new Season 3 threat, but is another rival government agency pulling the strings?

Despite everyone being more or less on an even keel now, Game of Thrones fandom has long been divided by viewers of the HBO series, and those committed to George R.R. Martin’s books. Spoilers fly in both directions, but a new official app from Martin’s Game of Thrones publisher enables TV viewers to sample the novels without fear of spoilers.

The Walking Dead Season 6 seems a bit more transparent than its predecessor, though the October 11 premiere may leave a few scratching their heads. Not only will the new season of AMC’s monster smash open on a “heightened” action sequence absent any context, but so too will episodes dip back to show both Morgan and others’ backstories.

Netflix’s appearance at the TCA press tour didn’t yield an official premiere date for Marvel’s Jessica Jones, though showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was only too happy to share Netflix’s next Defender. Not only do we have a sense of how Jessica Jones’ powers will translate to the MCU, but also how the second series will distinguish itself from the darker Daredevil.

Kurt Sutter’s FX Bastard Executioner should prove one of the more interesting experiments of the fall (and not just by casting Ed Sheeran), and even after its first trailer, each teaser takes us a little closer into a world of medieval horror. Swords swing, blood flies, and supporting cast are all on display in a new round of Bastard Executioner teases.

Look, we’ve all heard some pretty out-there pitches in TV land over the years, where once upon a time Sharknado was a nonsense word. The CW too has been guilty of this, and if “Sexy Mary, Queen of Scots“ can work, why not a gritty, “hyper-stylized” and dystopian take on Little Women? Okay, we may need a minute with this one.

Sporting a brand-new comic-friendly suit in Arrow Season 4, as well finally assuming the moniker of Green Arrow, Stephen Amell will take the CW character ever-closer to his DC roots by the fall return. That said, Amell hilariously refuted a suggestion that we’ll ever see The CW’s Oliver Queen sporting the comic character’s famous facial hair.

Its pilot already more or less out there, Supergirl seems to be establishing a campier comic presence than either its Arrow or Flash predecessors on The CW, understandable with a character as lighthearted and positive as Kara. Cue the DC-iest DC-named DC villain of all, as Supergirl will take on Chris Browning’s armored “Reactron.”

For as much denial as we’re under regarding Jon Stewart’s final Daily Show week, one has to wonder how Trevor Noah will fill the seat with his September premiere. Thankfully, not everything about The Daily Show will change with Stewart, as the old guard of executive producers will remain through Noah’s tenure.
