We’ve long wondered what, if any connection FOX’s Bryan Singer-directed X-Men drama might have to the movie franchise, though the latest dips a bit outside its reality. True Blood alum Stephen Moyer (as well as Rogue one Anna Paquin’s husband) will topline the mutant drama, albeit in a brand-new role.

When last we heard from Netflix’s proposed Series of Unfortunate Events adaptation, a teaser got the internet buzzing on potential improvements over the Jim Carrey theatrical version. That teaser proved to be fake, though we at last have some real development now that Barry Sonnenfeld and True Blood helmer Mark Hudis have signed on for the Lemony Snicket series.

The CW’s Arrow hasn’t proven quite so forthcoming with its Season 4 plot, though the fourth outing for Oliver Queen and co. has even more fresh blood in store. True Blood alum and Hannibal star Rutina Wesley will recur through Arrow Season 4 in an important role, while Enlisted vet Parker Young will get speedy with Thea Queen this year.

Both Sons of Anarchy and True Blood have gotten far enough in the rear-view mirror that we’re looking ahead to Kurt Sutter’s FX Bastard Executioner on the horizon, but it seems the former two almost had an insanely weird crossover. Not only had True Blood couple Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin sought roles in the final ride of Sons of Anarchy, but with a much less healthy relationship than real life.

Just yesterday ‘Hannibal’ season 3 served up a hearty appetizer in the form of its first trailer, but it seems Bryan Fuller’s dark and dreamy drama has yet another bloody morsel to offer. ‘True Blood’ star Rutina Wesley will de-fang for an arc as another major ‘Red Dragon’ character, but what’s her connection to ‘The Hobbit’ star Richard Armitage’s Francis Dolarhyde?

Last year we wouldn't help taking note of the many TV reboots of recent movies in the works, but this year (and especially the last few weeks) the trend has really exploded. Next on the conveyor belt is none other than 2006 Edward Norton-Jessica Biel magician drama 'The Illusionist' (no, not 'The Prestige'), with a new reboot from 'True Blood' writer Mark Hudis.

And lo, HBO’s ‘True Blood’ hath not gone gently into that good night, but rather stumbled through its series finale in a shower of goopy blood that made up its final installment “Thank You.” Fans of the 7-year HBO drama proved understandably divided by Sookie Stackhouse’s ultimate end, but what does showrunner Brian Buckner have to say of the finale’s major twists? Who was that guy at the head of the table? Why wasn’t Eric around more? All these answers and more, straight from the ‘True Blood’ series finale!
