x-files-event-series

So you might have heard that The X-Files is returning for a six-episode season starting this January on Fox. It seemed to come together pretty quick when the possibility was first raised back at the Television Critics Association press tour back in January and now the series is in front of the cameras in the show’s old stomping grounds in Vancouver. (The abnormally hot and sunny Vancouver, that is.) There’s been a lot rumor and speculation about the new series, and a lot of excitement too as fans watch closely for any news or updates. If that describes you, then you might want to pick up this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly. (more…)

If you’re into hot weather, pool time fun, and family vacations then Summer is pretty great. For the rest of us, though, it means a hiatus from our favorite shows. In the case of CW’s The Flash, Arrow, Supernatural, and iZombie being in-between seasons right now, weeknights have been void of nerd-er-tainment. Nothing to do except *gasp* eat dinner with the fam and socialize in the real world. My god, when are these shows coming back!?

The CW fall schedule has just been announced! The network will launch its 2015-16 season in October. Click on through to get the premier dates.   (more…)

By now you’re aware that Marvel Studios is sitting out this year’s San Diego Comic Con. That’s weird because can you think of a company that’s made a bigger splash at SDCC the last few years than Marvel? They’ve practically owned Hall H every Saturday night the last few years. Well, just because the movie portion of the program is being put on hold this year doesn’t mean that Marvel’s bailing on Comic Con entirely. Yes, the comics will be there still, but so will the TV division of Marvel Studios. Chomping at the bit for any insight into season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or season 2 of Agent Carter? The information below will tell you where and how to get it. (more…)

Hannibal-KeyArt-16x9-1

Shortly after the beginning of its third season and hot on the heels of Hannibal’s lowest ratings yet, NBC has made the decision to pull the plug on the artsy horror-thriller. It’s really no surprise given that Hannibal has never been a particularly popular show, but it nonetheless comes as a blow to fans like myself who’ve grown to love the show’s rather horrifying gory charms. Both Hannibal’s creator, Bryan Fuller, and a random NBC PR minion have issued statements on the issue, and we’ve got them here for you to devour for yourselves. (more…)

According to a fan’s website, he has been invited to pitch his TV series idea for a new small-screen iteration of Star Trek directly to the folks at Paramount Pictures.  Michael Gummelt has been working for years and years on a new Trek storyline for television, and has an insanely-detailed website devoted to it, which may be enough for some Hollywood execs to say “eh, why not, let’s give the guy a chance.”  (more…)

The prevailing success of Phil Lord and Chris Miller continues. Thanks to the smash hit that was The LEGO Movie and the unusual television comedy The Last Man on Earth, these two film/TV developers have earned the right to pretty much make anything they want. So how about a new comedy for Fox about an animated barbarian who returns to his live-action family? Sure, why not! (more…)
