FOX released a first look at the 2nd season of their hit show, Empire. Season 2 premieres September 23 at 9/8c.
I think I might have to binge watch this series in preparation for the new miniseries coming.
The truth is out there, and it’s that this isn’t a reboot. Mulder, Scully and presumably the whole gang of whatever it was invading Earth are returning to television for the first time in 14 years (we’re going to pretend that I Want To Believe didn’t happen) for The X-Files, a miniseries continuation of the Fox series that ran from 1993-2002.
To prime the pump in advance of the miniseries’ 2016 premiere, Fox aired a teaser during tonight’s episode of Wayward Pines, itself a show gunning heavily to carve out a slice of the same cultural space the X-Files did back in the Clinton years. Featuring the first glimpse ever of what we’ll see next year, that footage now is online:
Featuring the return of David Duchovny as…

Call it Emmy season justice. After being overlooked for two seasons by TV Academy voters, Canadian thesp Tatiana Maslany finally notched an Emmy lead drama actress nomination for her turn as various clones on the dystopian future BBC America show Orphan Black. Prior to today, award pundits as well as TV Academy members continually smacked their foreheads over Maslany being left out of the race.
Maslany faces off this season in the category against Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder), Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Claire Danes (Homeland), Robin Wright (House of Cards) and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men). In the last year, she has logged a TV drama actress nod at both the Golden Globes and SAG. The Critics Choice TV Awards have been ahead of the curve, giving her back-to-back best actress trophies in 2013 and 2014.

Starz released the first promo for season 2 of their summer hit, Survivor’s Remorse. The show premiered last summer with a 6-episode season that was surprisingly funny. The show is a comedy executive produced by Lebron James about young basketball superstar Cam Calloway (Jesse T. Usher), who just signed a multi-million dollar NBA deal with a team in Atlanta. His move to Atlanta brings along his manager cousin, Reggie (RonReaco Lee) and his wife Missy (Teyonah Parris), his crazy but loyal sister M-Chuck (Erica Ash), his very inappropriate Uncle Julius (Mike Epps) and his overbearing mother, Cassie (Tichina Arnold). The family must now figure out a way to deal with the perks and the trials that come with sudden fame and fortune.
The show is really easy to digest and just something that is light, fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously. The new season will start August 22 for a 10 episode run. Be sure to catch the first season on Starz before Season 2 starts.
The cast of Gilmore Girls got together today at the ATX Television Festival for a look back at the beloved Stars Hollow for the 15-year anniversary of the show (My gosh I’m old). It was so great to see them all together. Yay to ATX for pulling this off. This fest is definitely on my list for next year.
The ATX Television Festival played host to a “Gilmore Girls” reunion of epic proportions on Saturday night, with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, exec producer Daniel Palladino and stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Keiko Agena, Liza Weil, Jared Padalecki, Matt Czuchry, Yanic Truesdale, Liz Torres, Jackson Douglas, Todd Lowe, John Cabrera, Danny Strong and Milo Ventimiglia reuniting to look back on their time in Stars Hollow and where their careers have taken them since the show ended in 2007.
Here’s what we learned from the raucous, fast-talking panel:
Despite Patterson’s recent comments about a potential revival, Sherman-Palladino burst fans’ bubble by admitting “there’s nothing in the works at the moment.” However, she promised, “If it ever happened, I promise we’d do it correctly … Nobody here hates each other, which is very important. It would have to be the right everything, the right format, the right timing, it…

Empire’s Season 2 premiere date has been announced. The writers announced the show would return September 23rd for an 18-episode season. The new season will be a split one like many other shows have started to do with some episodes playing in the fall and the rest returning in the spring. If you haven’t watched the show or just want to rewatch before the new season starts, catch it on Hulu.
Two months after “Empire” wrapped its rookie season, writers of the Fox drama on Friday announced via Twitter the date of the show’s return — Sept. 23.
The start date doesn’t qualify as a shocker, as the net announced its plans to bring back the ratings juggernaut in the fall and this is the first Wednesday of the television season. “Empire” is expected to air something of a split season during the 2015-16 campaign, with at least half of the show’s planned 18 episodes saved for 2016.
The soap became appointment viewing during the course of its 12-episode run and finished as the season’s No. 1 broadcast entertainment series in 18-49. It grew nearly every week in the demo and finished with the highest average for any broadcast drama since ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” and “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2007-08, and the highest for any new drama since those shows bowed in…

I mean this was already a done deal. FX would be crazy to not stay in the Kurt Sutter business. Can’t wait to see this.
Kurt Sutter’s period drama “The Bastard Executioner” is “heading” to series.
FX has given a 10-episode order to the drama created by the “Sons of Anarchy” creator about a Late Middle Ages warrior knight who gets pulled back into fighting just when he thought he was out. Lee Jones plays titular executioner Wilkin Brattle, a warrior knight in King Edward I’s charge.
Sutter wrote the pilot. He is exec producing along with Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Paris Barclay. Barclay directed the pilot. Sutter also appears in the series, along with his wife, Katey Sagal, Stephen Moyer, Flora Spencer-Longhurst and Sam Spruell. The cast also includes Darren Evans, Danny Sapani, Timothy V. Murphy, Sarah White, Sarah Sweeney, Elen Rhys, Ethan Griffiths and Matthew Rhys.
“I love history. I love theology. I love blood. It’s been very satisfying weaving…
