If Marvel has taught us anything, management of a shared universe between TV and film is a dicey prospect, one even Star Wars struggles to make a two-way street.

The very existence of FOX’s upcoming 24: Legacy serves as reminder that Jack Bauer’s time has passed, producers even having entertained the thought of killing off their beleaguered hero in 2014 revival Live Another Day. That said, it seems Kiefer Sutherland himself led the charge in killing off Jack, casting serious doubt the actor would ever agree to reprise the role.
Disappointing though it was to learn that Megalyn E.K. couldn’t reprise her Vixen role for Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, there’s nothing wrong with a more old-school interpretation. Enter The Force Awakens star Maisie Richardson-Sellers as our new Vixen, who shares a set of powers with her granddaughter.
The likelihood of Hannibal Season 4 seems to get dimmer with each day removed from that cliff-diving finale, but according to Bryan Fuller, our chances are actually improving. Busy though he, Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy remain, Fuller says the possibility may again open up in late 2017.
Apart from myriad new additions to Season 5, Arrow hasn’t given us the clearest picture of its next chapter, at least in the manner Flash has. That said, Stephen Amell reveals that the Green Arrow will be sporting some new duds in Season 5, as well the appearance of a familiar face and “the most vicious, violent one-er shot in the history of network television.”
Paramount has understandably kept Star Trek focus on the new movie, but we may not wait long for the first major details of Bryan Fuller’s new CBS All-Access series. Not only does the showrunner confirm new details on casting and premise will likely arrive “around Comic-Con,” so too do we know that the series will tell a complete story over 13 episodes.
Boy, if ever you thought Mr. Robot Season 2 needed a stronger push into its July premiere, today is your day. Not only has the new season expanded to 12 episodes, but USA has a new trailer and your requisite Talking Dead-style after-show to boot!
It’s taken long enough for Cinemax’s adaptation of Max Collins’ Quarry to break ground, and will only take a bit longer still. The network has set an official September premiere for the Logan Marshall-Green led drama, also issuing its first official photos.
Game of Thrones ratings haven’t quite outpaced the Season 6 premiere, where everyone and their mother understandably tuned in for a potential Jon Snow return, but Sunday’s “Battle of the Bastards” will likely come close. Reports suggest the epic showdown will continue a trend bringing Season 6 to 23 million viewers across all platforms, a new high for the series.
HBO’s drama problem seems only to increase as 2016 rolls on, a slump that last year dragged True Detective from top-tier to bottom-shelf to cold storage. Matthew McConaughey might just be up for a cold one, however, claiming to have talked with creator Nic Pizzolatto about returning Rustin Cohle for True Detective Season 3.
