Last year saw hope for another Rambo film transforming into a FOX sequel TV series with Sylvester Stallone on board to produce and potentially cameo, though it didn’t take the Rocky franchise star long to distance himself from the project altogether. Now, Stallone reveals both that he’s retired the character of John Rambo, and his “delicate” reason for leaving the TV project.

There’s only so much left to say of FOX’s 2016 X-Files revival until the thing actually premieres on January 24, but by gum, FOX is going to give it a whirl. Straight from the cast and crew’s mouth, check out 20 minutes of new preview footage for Mulder and Scully’s grand return to the cases that made them famous!
As Arrested Development Season 5 inches closer to fruition at Netflix, hopefully undoing the mixed reactions to Season 4's disjointed narrative, it seems the Bluth family might have been in a very different state once upon a time. Executive David Nevins reveals that the series very nearly went to Showtime after its FOX cancellation, if not for a few key disagreements.
FOX’s Sleepy Hollow eked by to a third season under a new showrunner, a far cry from the breakout success of its first year, while series star (and its loudest online proponent) Orlando Jones was mysteriously axed from the third run. Now, Jones brazenly admits that producers fired him from the series, complicating the possibility of a return.
It’s hard to believe that new X-Files episodes will arrive in just over a month’s time, even as debate rages over the balance between our 2016 revival’s two mythology episodes, and standalone “monster of the week” hours within. Now, a new featurette for the January premiere sees cast and crew discussing the approach, and what great X-Files mysteries might end up solved.
Despite an overall mediocre reception, and a full five months since its first season finale, FOX’s M. Night Shyamalan-fronted Wayward Pines will live on after all. FOX has officially ordered a second season for 2016, but should we expect an all-new cast, as predicted?
FOX’s Empire may not be the same ratings juggernaut as its first season, but that isn’t stopping FOX from re-teaming with creator Lee Daniels for another powerhouse music drama. To wit, Queen Latifah has joined the new female-centric music drama Star, additionally casting the three unknown leads, and adding writers.
The announcement that a proposed Rambo legacyquel had landed at FOX brought uncertainty that Sylvester Stallone himself would reprise the role, despite being attached as executive producer. Now, it seems the former John Rambo won’t have any involvement with the series whatsoever, which could well draw final blood from New Blood.
The benchmark for most of TV’s most iconic and enduring animated series seems to be the eventual transition to movies, as we’ve seen with The Simpsons and South Park, but at long last, could Family Guy be far behind? Creator Seth MacFarlane hints it might happen sooner than we realize.
The limited six-episode nature of The X-Files 2016 return means a limited reserve of footage with which to tease the January premiere, but Mulder and Scully can certainly find other ways to build the hype. Case in point, UFO sightings are popping up all over the country, according to the latest X-Files return teaser.
