You remember Hannibal Lecter, right? Talented therapist, accomplished chef, good friend, and… well, closeted cannibal. Hope that wasn’t a spoiler. Anyway, in case you’ve forgotten, or don’t have the time or interest to watch episodes 1 through 13 of Hannibal, NBC has put out a six-and-a-half minute video recap of season 1. Remember the Chesapeake Ripper? The Minnesota Shrike? Dr. Abel Gideon? Well get ready, because you’re about to get a mindful. Or do I mean a mouthful? Roll the clip below: (more…)
Hey, Fannibals! Keeping busy until Hannibal returns to NBC on Friday, February 28th? There’s been some promo shots and a full trailer, and now there’s even a clip! It’s not much, but it does tease what will likely be a iconic moment of the upcoming season. (SPOILERS for Season 1) (more…)
Hannibal was not exactly a breakout hit last year, but the series has a devoted and ever growing fan base – Hi, Fannibals! – who are watering at the mouth for more of Bryan Fuller‘s deliciously twisted show. Narrowly avoiding the chopping block last season, Hannibal returns to NBC on February 28th at 10pm. Promotional materials are beginning to fly, so let’s take a look! (more…)
The first season of Telltale‘s The Walking Dead blew everyone away. Until then, no one ever imagined what’s basically a choose-your-own adventure style of gaming could be so gripping. With an ending as shocking as its first season had, Season 2 only promises to be more intense as players step into the shoes of the young orphan, Clementine. We’ve already seen a short trailer teasing The Walking Dead’s second season, but today Telltale released a trailer for its first episode, “All That Remains.” (more…)
After last season’s shocking ending – seriously, I’m not being sarcastic, I really didn’t see that coming – Arrow returned for its second season last night with a solid premiere. The Hood has been absent since an earthquake left a good chunk of Starling City in ruins. Coincidentally, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) skipped town, too, though no one in town seems to find any correlation between these two events. Hey, they’re suffering, we can’t ask them to draw obvious conclusions right now. (more…)
It’s been a not-so-long and arduous search, but the producers of Arrow have found the young man who will take the part of Barry Allen in the second season of the series, and the potential spin-off series The Flash. His name is Grant Gustin, and if you don’t know his name, then you’re neither a fan of Glee or the recently defunk re-invention of 90210.
Some of the folks that managed to make it down to San Diego for Comic Con this year were treated to a sizzle reel marketing splat from the folks at the CW, showing off some of what to expect from the second season of Arrow. Now, the powers-that-be have seen fit to let the rest of us commoners have something to watch, giving us the first preview of what we can expect once the new season airs. Check it out below:
And check out the next season of Arrow when it airs in just over a month, on Wednesday, October 9th.
Thanks to Coming Soon for the heads-up.
For a lot of us watching John Barrowman play Arrow‘s Malcolm Merlyn (the Dark Archer), it was the first time we’ve seen him be a real villain. Sure, there was that one time onDoctor Who, but this is the first time we really saw him embrace the role of a ruthless killer, and it was fun. At least until the season finale of Arrow came around and Malcolm’s fate was left in the wind.
With Season 2 of Arrow on the way, the villain responsible for the death of Oliver’s father and his time shipwrecked, is set to make a comeback. As for when he’ll return, producer Marc Guggenheim wasn’t forgiving in laying out a straight answer.
Part of the enjoyment of Season 2 for us is how do you combine the old — not the old — but the Season 1 villains with the new Season 2 villains, we’ve confirmed that John Barrowman is coming back. We are a show that does flashbacks. I don’t think it’s spoiling anything to say that John Barrowman’s scenes will be with Stephen [Amell].
Seeing as the two last shot it out in a building rigged to collapse, that might be Marc’s clever way of saying he’ll return only in flashbacks. On the other hand, Barrowman might very well return at some point in the living flesh – we didn’t see his body so he may have made it out. Perhaps with The Hood moving on to the more known role of Green Arrow, maybe we’ll see him return all scarred up and looking for a rematch by season’s end.
Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Stephen King, Under the dome has been quite successful, despite the initial jabs from fans. Once we saw what the series developed by Brian K. Vaughan was actually like, the numbers grew – averaging 13.84 million viewers each week and becoming the number one summer series for viewers. And , with the advantage of DVR recording and video on demand and online streaming those numbers continue to grow.
So naturally Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, announced today that the show will return in 2014 with 13 all new episodes, with the first new episode of the season being written by King himself.
“We’re excited to tell more stories about the mystery of the dome and the secrets in Chester’s Mill, and are thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first one of next season”
The stars of Under the Dome are just as excited for the announcement as the studio. They continue to get paid, but also get to expand on the mystery of the dome, and it’s people. In a talk with Access Hollywood Dean Norris, who plays James “Big Jim” Rennie on the show, gave viewers a little insight into what the future holds for season 2:
“We’re gonna learn a lot about the mystery of the dome at the end of the show, you see the dome start to take on a character that’s much larger than has been shown so far. It’s really cool ’cause that’s really the cool, creepy, sci-fi part of it -when this dome is actual sentient being and it’s got its own thing.”
Mixed with murder, mystery and secrets, the town of Chester’s Mill season two sounds like it’s going to be quite the show.
Under the Dome airs Mondays at 10 pm Eastern.
Arrow, while to many not the best super hero series ever put together, still has a strong fan base – enough to get it a solid shot at a second season. And as part of the DC/Warner Bros. world, it has the potential to introduce some characters to us and perhaps flesh out the overall DC universe. Season 2 is coming up this fall and with San Diego Comic Con, the powers-that-be decided to tease us with a bit of footage from the new episodes. Though about half of the video is Season 1, set-up type stuff, the rest shows a few new baddies, some growing character relationships and a hint at possible changes for the show. Check it all out below:
And check out the new season of Arrow when it premieres this fall on October 9th.
