Apart from any behind-the-scene sadness, 'The Simpsons' still aims to kill off one of its most iconic characters at some point in the coming year, just like Maude Flanders and Fat Tony (briefly) before. Producers have been rather tight-lipped about which Springfieldian might face the axe, but iconic voice actor and star Hank Azaria isn't shy about crossing a few names from the death pool.
'The Simpsons' has made countless headlines over the last year with its tributes to famed artists, LEGO tie-ins and memorial content, but the biggest story won't hit until late 2014. Following the massive syndication deal struck with FX, all 530 episodes across 24 seasons of the long-running FOX comedy will be made available to stream via FXNow!
Just yesterday we learned that FOX's Batman prequel 'Gotham' TV series would in fact include a number of characters from the Dark Knight mythology, among them Bruce Wayne and his most iconic foes, but has Commissioner Gordon's leading role already been cast? 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Vikings' star Donal Logue has reportedly been offered the part!
The fifth season of FOX's starmaking 'Glee' became mired by change with the death of actor Cory Monteith, as well as news that a sixth season would likely prove the last for the series. Now, FOX president Kevin Reilly reveals even more change on the horizon, as the remainder of the fifth season will shift focus to its New York setting, potentially moving the series there for the duration of its run.
The announcement of FOX's Batman-adjacent 'Gotham' TV series proved a mostly-welcome surprise, though few details beyond Commissioner Gordon's central role emerged at the time. That all changes today, as we know how and when Bruce Wayne will finally don his cape, and which major Batman villains will suit up over the course of the series!
Most of the casting announcements for FOX's upcoming '24' revival, 'Live Another Day,' have either belonged to returning stars or relative unknowns, but the latest news emerging from FOX's TCA press tour is anything but small. Not only will 'Chuck' and 'Dexter' alum Yvonne Strahovski team up with Jack Bauer, but FOX has officially handed down the premiere date for Jack's two-hour return!
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of M. Night Shyamalan's forthcoming FOX event series drama 'Wayward Pines,' but considering the performance of 'After Earth,' we were a bit understandably hesitant. Now you can check out the first photo of star Matt Dillon channeling 'Wayward Pines' 'Twin Peaks' vibe, with new intel on the series from Shyamalan himself.
We've seen plenty of incredible 'Simpsons' tributes in the couch gags from recent years, but this Sunday, the animation staff behind FOX's long-running hit will spirit away to a much higher level. See the famous animated works of director Hayao Miyazaki paid tribute in a new clip from this Sunday's latest episode of 'The Simpsons'!
So far we've heard criminally little of FOX's surprise 'Gotham' TV series, centering its story on the detective career of a pre-Batman Commissioner Gordon, but apart from a few recent rumors, it seems the buzzworthy pilot at least has a respectable director. 'CSI' vet Danny Cannon will helm the inaugural installment of 'Gotham,' while a new report suggests a young Bruce Wayne's inclusion in the series may not come to pass.
Unexpected, but okay! We were a bit disappointed to learn that 'The Office' star Rainn Wilson wouldn't return to TV as soon as we'd hoped, given that CBS declined to pick up the comic actor's buzzworthy police procedural 'Backstrom,' but it seems FOX has taken a big shot on Wilson with a full series order for the discarded drama.
