Westworld secrecy is a tough nut to crack, but production on Season 2 will surely start soon, in order to make a 2018 return. Before that, the mystery drama’s cast and crew addressed certain mysteries from PaleyFest, including Season 2’s plan to avoid the same production pitfall as Season 1, and a major finale choice that hangs over one character.

Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Game of Thrones’ Stannis Baratheon went out in particularly Stannis-fashion; committed to a losing battle, and accepting Brienne would do her “duty” to put him down. That said, a new script page making the rounds shows a very different end for the would-be King, one filled with regret.
Game of Thrones understandably has to build hype year after year, especially when a penultimate season keeps fans waiting later than usual. Bless their hearts, HBO even tried to make Season 7’s premiere reveal special with a giant block of ice, though star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says producers found the failed stunt “embarrassing.”
Over the weekend, we learned that Crashing star and comedian Artie Lange questioned his job prospects after a recent drug arrest. Now, Lange claims that HBO officially fired him from the Pete Holmes comedy, though both network reps and producer Judd Apatow curiously deny it.
HBO’s The Leftovers was too good for this world, and as such, will depart it shortly. Before that happens, the final season is teasing majorly biblical events to come, and we’ve got the seven spoiler-y synopses to prove it!
The genius of Westworld had it so even the most minor characters leave an impression, so much so that the return of Talulah Riley’s battered bot finally unlocked our mystery box.

Even if you attended the annual insanity in Austin last week, chances are pretty high that you missed at least a few good movies.

Lucky for the sleepless and the well-rested alike, we’ve put together a handy list featuring some of the best films from SXSW 2017.
Sesame Street has provided decades’ worth of early education and inclusion, and now the series will help shed light on autism as well. The children’s classic has released its first official videos featuring Julia, a new four year-old muppet with autism who will debut in early April.
Any fan of Artie Lange knows the comedian’s history of substance abuse and legal troubles, one which added a new chapter this week with an arrest for possession. Lange also has a prominent role on HBO’s Crashing, which the star acknowledges may now come to an end, if not necessarily by Judd Apatow’s doing.
For a series that asks us to “let the mystery be,” The Leftovers sure doesn’t mind asking us to solve puzzles. So it is with the third and final season’s official trailer, broken up and scattered across the internet in seven parts. Come sleuth with us!
