HBO’s True Detective smashed time into a flat circle by its blockbuster first season, but did you know that creator Nic Pizzolatto originally intended the story as his next novel? Or that Matthew McConaughey’s Rustin Cohle only drinks eight beers over the course of the series?

The continued expansion of The CW’s DC universe already stretched Arrow Season 3 a bit thinner by way of The Flash, so it stands to reason that Legends of Tomorrow might require some additional firepower. Enter the new Legends showrunner, already familiar to fans of The CW’s dearly-departed Tomorrow People.
Last week brought news that both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash would speed onto DVD and Blu-ray in advance of their fall premieres, but even those attending the massive Superhero Saturday at Comic-Con 2015 needn’t wait for new material.

Game of Thrones has no shortage of parodies, whether by its biggest battle sequences, most horrible deaths, or even just a good lip reading, but this take on the opening credits might be one of the best yet. See Super Mario World tackle Westeros in an epic mash-up of the Game of Thrones credits!
As if Comic Con 2015’s Friday schedule in Hall H weren’t enough of a bloodbath between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Walking Dead, in comes Game of Thrones for the (gratuitous and controversial) kill.

The Walking Dead left the Ricktatorship in a whole new world by the end of Season 5, literally and figuratively, but the benefit of Alexandria walls doesn’t seem to be keeping out the danger. With Comic-Con 2015 up ahead, AMC has released the first Walking Dead Season 6 key art, and the bromance between Rick and Morgan may be put to the test.
Were there ever any doubt that Wet Hot American Summer would ride again, full cast and all, the first full trailer for Netflix prequel series First Day of Camp has arrived, and in glorious home video quality to boot.
The cancellation of NBC’s Hannibal left us shocked, shocked (well, not that shocked), though given the climate of revivals and rescues, it seemed resoundingly likely the darkly delicious drama might find a new home. Now, series creator Bryan Fuller and producers are on the hunt for a new network, while long-standing rights issues with Clarice Starling may have impacted Season 4’s chances.
The Network of Bad Choices may have today canceled Hannibal, but don’t you worry your pretty brains about Heroes Reborn! Elaborate prank or otherwise, the revived NBC series at least has a new teaser (absent any actual Heroes), as well as a firm September premiere date set by today’s announcements. So, where are all the Heroes, you ask?
