Now that most of the major pickups, cancellations and renewals have come to pass, the core networks set about revealing their fall schedules, as well as trailers and loglines for their latest offerings. First up is NBC, with a look at everything from the Jaimie Alexander Naked in A Bag Show, to Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s new comedy and even Wesley Snipes‘ new drama.

NBC’s Hannibal has long trafficked in surreal imagery, and spared no expense showing off Mads Mikkelsen’s dapper new motorcycle look for Season 3, but … well, you should probably have a look at the latest Korean promo for yourself. You know, if you ever wanted to see Hannibal on a motorcycle, fired out of a giant gun.
Pushing dangerously past the point of pranking shelf-life, NBC’s Heroes Reborn continues to insist on itself as an actual thing that will exist on television. Now with Upfronts 2015 in play, the network’s most elaborate joke even has his own photos, and a tentative weekly scheduling for the fall.
This past week NBC sitcom Undateable made waves with its airing of a live-episode, a far-cry from its near-certain Season 2 cancellation months earlier, but NBC seems to have taken a major swing. Not only will the three-camera comedy return for Season 3, but all of its episodes will be filmed live. Good luck, everyone!
A few weeks ago, word of NBC’s early Constantine cancellation was met by slight backpedal and a firm insistence from creator Daniel Cerone that the Hellblazer might yet live. Tragically, NBC’s Constantine has officially conjured its last, for serious this time.
The majority of Hannibal Season 3 press has focused on the devlish doc’s new life on the lam alongside Gillian Anderson’s Bedelia du Maurier, leaving a number of Season 2 finale “Mizumono” fates in jeopardy. Now, a gorgeous new round of photos from the season would seem to confirm the finale bloodbath survivors, but with a potential twist.
SNL proved a bit less mightier than The Avengers this past weekend, in spite of a few inspired bits with host Scarlett Johansson, but with only two installments of the 40th anniversary season left, Reese Witherspoon is in Hot Pursuit. Watch her and Aidy Bryant ditch out for a gorgeous spring day in our first look at the year’s penultimate SNL!
Apart from, you know, everyone’s survival, Hannibal left us with a great Season 3 mystery in its closing tag of Bedelia (Gillian Anderson) accompanying the good Dr. Lecter on the lam. Now, the latest look at Season 3 of Bryan Fuller’s darkly delicious NBC drama teases that the “Bride of Hannibal” may not be such a kept woman, and may spill some blood of her own.
Ah, May upfronts, where the networks seek to outdo one another in greenlighting the most shamelessly attention-grabbing pilots imaginable. Speaking of shameless attention-grabbing, how about Thor star Jaimie Alexander naked in a duffel bag, or what NBC likes to call Blindspot?
The Age of Revivals spurred along by the likes of Netflix’s Fuller House or whatever NBC drags out of the dumpster next has many hopeful that Friends will finally get its oft-discussed reunion. Nope! Co-creator Marta Kauffman bluntly states “reunions suck,” at last putting an end to speculation.
