Arrested Development executive producer Brian Grazer seems to be the only one beating the drum on a fifth season these days, first promising a whopping 17 new episodes, then claiming production would begin in early 2016.

We’ve barely begun to witness the fallout of Terry “Hulk Hogan” Bollea’s racist remarks making their way public, the WWE already having severed all ties to the iconic wrestler. So while said severance understandably pulls Hogan off as a judge for WWE reality competition Tough Enough, the series will endure by replacing him.
Like The Flash before it, an early leak of Supergirl’s pilot has made new footage and details hard to come by in the months before its October premiere. Now that production has begun beyond the pilot however, CBS teases the future of Supergirl with a new behind-the-scenes look at an impressive visual sequence from episode two.
If you thought Judy Greer couldn’t squeeze in another wifely role this summer, Showtime has you covered. The Jurassic World / Tomorrowland / Ant-Man / Married star will join Masters of Sex Season 3 late in its run as that of another notable spouse, but to whom, you ask?
