The past year has seen an exponential rise in comic book TV shows, already on air with the likes of 'The Flash,' 'Gotham' and 'Constantine,' with 'Supergirl,' 'Daredevil' and many more to follow, but the latest comic series from producer Greg Berlanti is decidedly less super. Prepare for Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and more to get their own live-action series, as FOX begins prepping its new 'Riverdale' drama!
For all the eye-rolling of TV's increased obsession with rebooting movies into loosely-related TV series, we have to admit when one seems reasonably built for the small screen. So agrees Will Smith apparently, who has begun developing a series based on 2005's 'Hitch,' with an eye to land on FOX in the near future.
Last night's 'Arrow' installment "Corto Maltese" took us out of Starling City for the next layer of mystery to season 3, but next week's "The Magician" will see a whole knew threat rising as Matt Nable first appears in the role of legendary DC baddie Ra's al Ghul! See what the immortal (ish) Batman villain looks like in our first footage from next week's 'Arrow' installment!
The second episode of 'Freak Show' placed us in some worrisome and familiar territory, pitting freak against freak as Dell was introduced to the mix, but tonight's third episode goes a little ways to course-correcting the season (for now, at least). In the first of the two-part Halloween episode, we meet the titular "Edward Mordrake," the boogeyman among the freaks, for even those we're most afraid of have someone that terrifies them. (Well, there's Twisty, but still.)
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its third installment of the year with "Corto Maltese,” as Oliver travels to the titular country in search of Thea, Felicity settles into her her new job, and Laurel trades blows with boxer Ted "Wildcat" Grant (J.R. Ramirez).
Things have been quiet over at the 'Bates Motel,' but with season 3 set to open for business in March 2015, the iconic horror destination finds itself booked solid with guest stars. Not only will 'Sons of Anarchy' alum Ryan Hurst and NBC 'Revolution' castoff Tracy Spiridakos check into the 'Bates Motel' this season, but so too will 'Mad Men' star Kevin Rahm, and likely others.
Among the countless sadness that arose with Philip Seymour Hoffman's passing earlier this year, Showtime was forced to shelve its critically-lauded pilot 'Happyish,' following rave reviews for Hoffman's central role. Now, the network has officially opted to re-shoot the dramedy series' pilot, with Steve Coogan in the lead.
Just yesterday FOX Batman prequel 'Gotham' took us inside the GCPD for a first look at Harvey Dent's upcoming appearance, and now another major piece of the Dark Knight puzzle has fallen into place. 'Firefly' and 'Homeland' star Morena Baccarin will show her face in 'Gotham' as noted DC Dr. Leslie Thompkins, though she may not focus her medical talents on young Bruce Wayne just yet.
Only the second most exciting 'SNL' news of the week, this Saturday will see Jim Carrey returning to the stage for a third time alongside pop star Iggy Azalea. Ostensibly the show's Halloween episode, take at look at Jim Carrey's murderous and impression-heavy round of 'SNL' promos with Aidy Bryant!
Last week, 'St. Vincent' star Bill Murray appeared on 'The Late Show' in a visit that was so good, so rich, and so weird, that we all but demanded that the comedian take over the series when host David Letterman departs. Perhaps we were a bit too hasty with that demand, because Murray has now brought his late night skills to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' where they were just as charming as ever.
