There’s no easy way to break this to you, so we’ll lay it straight: Heroes Reborn will not return for Season 2. In related, and equally breaking news, Heroes Reborn was still on the air. In 2016. No, really! Come, join us in our dumbstruck eulogy.

For the time being at least, it seems as if the sands of late night have ceased their shifting, with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon firmly settled into David Letterman and Jay Leno’s old jobs, while Trevor Noah and Larry Wilmore lead Comedy Central Daily and Nightly, and Seth Meyers will be staying in place as well. Per NBC, the former SNL writer and current Late Night host will stick with his current posting for at least another five years.

Hulu’s first trailer for The Path gave us a peek at Hugh Dancy’s next role, though many a Hannibal fan keeps hope that Bryan Fuller will one day reunite Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen for another chapter. Fuller has long kept vague on the mystery plot to a potential fourth season, though Dancy gave some tantalizing clues that “took us back to the first season.”

With the loss of 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, NBC has struggled in the sitcom department and fallen far short of their former glory, particularly in the face of FOX’s strong lineup and excellent original content from Netflix, Amazon and other streaming providers. There are potentially great things ahead, however, as the company has ordered pilots from Tina Fey, Mike Schur, Marlon Wayans and DC comics, offering a veritable variety platter of humor that could very well punch-up their sitcom lineup and put them back in the game.

SNL already had our vote with the announcement that Girls and Star Wars star Adam Driver would kick off 2016, and the year’s second host is just as strong a knockout. Ronda Rousey herself will take the SNL stage in late January, joined by Selena Gomez, while Driver’s musical guest has been revealed as well.

Per Netflix’s overall strategy, many a subscriber undoubtedly took the holiday break to binge a few new hot-ticket items, among them the streaming service’s own true crime docu-drama Making a Murderer. Seth Meyers surely did as well, staging his Late Night return with a pitch-perfect parody of the Wisconsin murder investigation into Steven Avery.

We still don’t know who will take the stage alongside Star Wars baddie and Girls star Adam Driver when SNL returns in 2016, but Season 41 has a belated Christmas gift to offer. Series star Kyle Mooney gets yet another cut sketch, awkwardly interviewing Justin Bieber fans in line for a performance.

The Walking Dead may pack conventions just as well as the world of Westeros, but there’s no denying Game of Thrones as the biggest show in the world right now. Case in point, HBO’s epic adaptation has snagged a fourth year as TV’s most pirated series, while newcomers like Supergirl also eke their way onto the list.

NBC
Time and time again, the SNL cut-for-time sketches week to week have proven among the funniest, if weirdest the series has to offer, particularly at the hands of Kyle Mooney. Another deleted bit from Amy Poehler (and Tina Fey)’s 2015 closer doesn’t quite continue the trend, but “Christmas at Nana’s” is worth a watch all the same.

SNL alum Tina Fey and Amy Poehler certainly commandeered some spotlight away from Star Wars with a dual-hosting close to 2015, but Kylo Ren may have the last laugh. The Force Awakens and Girls star Adam Driver will make his SNL hosting debut in January, the first not-ready-for-primetime player lead of 2016.
