Gotham has never shied away from hammering home its origins and imagery, and Season 2 seems no different by the first posters. Watch the villains rise (weren’t they already doing that?) with a batty first look at the new FOX season, complete with shots of our new big Gotham big bads.

Not that either couldn’t use the publicity, but the notion of FOX’s supernatural Sleepy Hollow crossing over with the science-minded Bones struck an odd note for fans of either series. The network had originally though to stage the two-hour event later in the season, perhaps even 2016, but has apparently gotten jazzed up enough to move the crossover as early as Halloween.
Years from now, we’ll all look back fondly on those crazy couple of weeks when Harry Shearer had apparently left The Simpsons and his 20+ voices behind over ambiguous contract issues. That said, don’t let Harry Shearer know you suspect it all smoke and mirrors. It “wasn’t a stunt,” he’s super-serious!
The inherent secrecy of The Last Man on Earth gave its first season a few ups and downs, though those directions look increasingly literal by the Will Forte-starring, Lord and Miller-produced comedy’s first Season 2 poster. Carol and Phil (and all his sporting good friends) hit the road in our first look at Season 2, but what might it mean for the rest of the cast?
FOX’s Gotham has only expanded as we approach the Season 2 premiere, adding more regulars and Batty villains than we can count, but may finally have stumbled over its own size. Two more of Gotham’s finest won’t return for Season 2 as series regulars, while a new international trailer spotlights lunatics running Arkham Asylum this time out.
Sometime in June, we first heard that Lord and Miller would develop a new “live-action / animation hybrid” series for FOX, with a creative team and partial cast already in place. Now, SNL alum Jason Sudeikis has signed on as the titular animated Barbarian for Son of Zorn, along with a host of others for the bizarre project.
Gotham gave out a few tidbits of Season 2 from its Comic-Con 2015 panel, though only those in attendance got to see new footage. Now, the DC drama goes batty with villains in two new trailers for the fall premiere, including a new look at the Batcave, and the so-called “Rise of the Villains.”
Forget the Emmy snubs, FOX’s Empire just won the fall. We won’t have to wait until September for a fresh look at the Lyons’ latest drama, as FOX has officially dropped the first Empire Season 2 trailer online, chock full of money, power, and some serious Orange.
Back in April, X-Files showrunner Chris Carter offered up a cryptic suggestion that the once spun-off, thrice-dead Lone Gunmen might return for the 2016 revival, and it seems that mystery is officially afoot. Not only with the conspiracy theorist hacker trio return to life for The X-Files event series, we know when the first official trailer might arrive.
FOX’s Gotham proved somewhat light on announcements at Comic-Con 2015, the only major casting since a questionable love interest for Bruce, but now the GCPD has a major new Shield on the force. Hot off the Freak Show, Vick Mack - er, Michael Chiklis will clean up Gotham city streets as a Season 2 Regular.
