'Legend of Korra' is not canceled, will finish airing online

Legend of Korra fans can rest easy—the animated series has not been canceled.

Earlier today, the website NickAndMore reported that Nickelodeon had pulled the show from its schedule and that Korra‘s eighth episode, airing Friday, would be the last to be seen on television. While this is true, the creators have confirmed that the five remaining episodes of “Book Three” will be released online.

Korra is NOT cancelled,” the show’s team assured in a post on the series’ official Tumblr page. “The remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.”

And there’s even more good news: “There is most definitely a ‘Book 4,’” co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino said on his Facebook page. “All the pre-production is done and Studio Mir is hard at work on the animation.”

Legend of Korra‘s San Diego Comic-Con panel will take place Friday, where this big announcement will certainly be a topic of conversation.

'Suits' star Rick Hoffman talks Louis' dangerous moves

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Suits, “Litt the Hell Up,” stop reading now.

Louis (Rick Hoffman) once again made a move that unintentionally hurt Harvey’s position in the battle for Gillis Industries. Louis fixed it by tricking Charles Forstman (recurring guest star Eric Roberts) into doing business with him by making him believe he hates Harvey as much as Forstman does—a move that Harvey called brilliant, and rewarded by suggesting they drink scotch from Louis’ “You Just Got Litt Up!” mugs. But Forstman had the last laugh, insisting that Louis run the money through Switzerland and the Cayman Islands to avoid taxes. Louis is legally bound to report him, but that would blow the deal, and he can’t bear to think of Harvey’s face if he disappoints him again. READ FULL STORY

'Covert Affairs' star Chris Gorham hints at sexiest episode yet

This week’s episode of Covert Affairs (Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on USA) continues the search for the Postman and puts Auggie (Chris Gorham), who’s in a new relationship with Hayley (Amy Jo Johnson), in the field in Paris to approach an asset with whom he has an emotional history. Annie (Piper Perabo), meanwhile, tags along as his handler and finds herself cozying up to someone as well for the sake of the mission.

Combine their efforts with the revelation that the woman Calder (Hill Harper) has been sleeping with is an escort, and it’s shaping up to be Covert Affairs‘ steamiest season. Gorham gave EW a tease of what’s ahead. (Come back to Inside TV after the episode airs for a postmortem.) READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy' creator says series ending not yet decided

SoA-Final-Season

Sons of Anarchy is headed into its final season. Yet creator Kurt Sutter says the end of the road for FX’s biker hit has not yet been entirely mapped.

“Considering I’m a week-and-a-half behind writing episode 7, it could all change,” Sutter told reporters when asked about the series ending at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Monday. “I’ve always had a sense of where I wanted it to go, and I come in each season with a blueprint with the big arcs and mile markers. And I’ve learned over seven seasons the looser I grip that idea the better the seasons are. And this season isn’t any different. I came in with how I wanted the season to end … but things change. It’s always been heading in the same direction, but the way I’m getting there continues to change.”

Also, Sutter warns not to expect the final season to feel markedly different: “I didn’t want it to feel like ‘the final season,’ or to have it feel different,” Sutter said. “I really want it to feel like another season from Sons, only that when we’re done there’s probably not a whole lot more story to tell.”

And will there be closure? “We don’t fade to black in a diner,” Sutter assured, referencing the infamous ending of HBO’s The Sopranos.

'True Blood' star Nelsan Ellis talks Lafayette's new romance

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now (or, at least read our full recap first). We spoke with Nelsan Ellis, who plays fan favorite Lafayette, about his second favorite scene of the series—when Lafayette asks Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) if she really knows James (Nathan Parsons), and why it’s so unimaginable that he would want a piece of happiness, too. (His favorite Lafayette moment, for the record, remains the AIDs burger scene from season 1.)  READ FULL STORY

'Boardwalk Empire' won't go quietly in its final season

'True Blood' costume designer talks Eric and Pam's formal, flashback attire

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now. (Or, at least read our full recap first.) The Pam and Eric show continued as the duo traveled to Dallas in search of Sarah Newlin at a Ted Cruz fundraiser hosted at the Bush Library. We spoke to True Blood‘s costume designer, Audrey Fisher, about their memorable formal wear. And because we’re still obsessed with those flashbacks to 1986, 1996, and 2006, we got the backstory on those looks as well.

The Dallas Fundraiser

Seeing as how Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) would dress Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) in a purple sequin gown that Pam would joke makes her look like a “republic-nt,” and Pam would get even more joy out of dressing Eric up as the perfect Texan businessman, Fisher had one focus: “Try to get costumes that definitely were a big wink, but that weren’t too comical,” she says.

For Eric, she custom-made a traditional Western-style suit: “I had to make at least doubles of it, maybe even triples. I sketched it up. We found a great fabric that we could get enough of, because he’s a tall man—it’s a lot of yardage, more than just the average suit. And a wonderful tailor in Koreatown whipped up these beautiful suits that fit like a glove and have really beautiful Western detailing. We topped it off with not a 10-gallon hat—that would be too comical—but a really beautiful Western hat.” READ FULL STORY

James Garner, TV legend from 'Maverick' and 'Rockford Files,' dies

James Garner, the rugged leading man who charmed generations of audiences with his roles in Maverick, The Rockford Files, and The Notebook, died of natural causes on Saturday night in Los Angeles, according to TMZ and the Associated Press. The Emmy winner—and 14-time nominee—had suffered a stroke in 2008 and was 86.

The persona he first projected in Maverick in 1957—handsome, charming, genial, a bit of a rogue, mostly a mensch—established Garner as America’s leading television actor. Born James Scott Baumgarner in Norman, Okla., in 1928, he survived an upbringing that was at best knockaround and often, at the hands of a cruel stepmother, abusive. “By the time I was 14, I’d become an independent little bastard,” he says. “Nobody was going to tell me what to do.” The attitude ebbed; the independence remained. As a young man, he played football, migrated to California, flunked out of Hollywood High, spent a semester at the University of Oklahoma, served in the Merchant Marines, won two Purple Hearts in Korea, modeled Jantzen swimsuits, and eventually fell into acting.

sons-of-anarchy-collectors-set.jpg

If you thought that “Hell Awaits” season seven teaser for Sons of Anarchy‘s final ride seemed foreboding, check out the packaging for the Collector’s Set that fans will be able to pre-order at Comic-Con. Not only does it come in a wooden box (gun crate or coffin?), but also a custom re-creation of the iconic SAMCRO Reaper clubhouse table—which looks a lot like a tombstone when you stand it vertically.

The set will be available for pre-sale at the Fox booth #4229 in San Diego. When it’s released in November, it will include the first six seasons and a slot for season 7. The Comic-Con price tag—$150 for DVD and $200 for Blu-ray—does not include the final season.

Season six itself will be first available on DVD and Blu-ray on Aug. 26, ahead of the final season’s Sept. 9 premiere. Watch a deleted scene between Tara (Maggie Siff) and Eli (Rockmond Dunbar) from episode 603, “Poenitentia,” below.

Lifetime has found its replacement for Zendaya Coleman.

Alexandra Shipp will play late R&B singer Aaliyah in Lifetime’s upcoming biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B (working title), EW has confirmed. The planned film is set to premiere this fall and will be executive produced by Debra Martin Chase and talk show host Wendy Williams.

Willams broke the news earlier today when she tweeted:

Shipp’s previous film credits include Nicklelodeon’s House of Anubis, and guest appearances on AwkwardSwitched At Birth, and Victorious. Zendaya Coleman (Shake It Up) was originally cast in the lead role, but the 17-year-old actress dropped out of the project in June. Coleman, whose “Replay” spent 21 weeks on Billboard Hot 100, was originally set to sing in the film as well. No word yet on whether or not Shipp will also sing in the film.

Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B is based on Wall Street Journal editor Christopher John Farley’s biography on the late singer Aaliyah: More than a Woman.
