'Arrow': Your one-minute refresher


In season 2, Arrow was all about the rise of Slade/Deathstroke and his quest for revenge against Oliver. But after a handful of shocking farewells and an all-out war in Starling City, Deathstroke seems to be a thing of the past. But before you dive into all that Ray Palmer and Ra’s al Ghul have to offer in season 3, it’d probably be best to brush up on how things ended.

With that in mind, we’ve created a one-minute refresher that will catch you up (and get you ready to enjoy Oliver and Felicity’s date!).


'Chicago Fire' having a three-way crossover (with 'P.D.,' 'SVU')


It’s official: NBC is doing a crossover stunt across three different crime dramas: Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Law & Order: SVU. The unusual three-way crossover will have characters from NBC’s Dick Wolf-produced fall procedurals interacting across three epiosdes next month.

Word of the crossover had been making the rounds, but the network officially announced the plan and the event’s premiere date today — Nov. 11-12. NBC staged a crossover between Fire and P.D. last season, but this time is letting SVU in on the action. “We wanted to figure out a way to create a crime that connects all three shows,” Wolf said in a statement. “Warren Leight [SVU showrunner] and Matt Olmstead [Chicago Fire/P.D.] showrunner and I came up with a story that was big and unique enough to transit to all three.” READ FULL STORY

Naomi Campbell joins 'Empire'

Naomi Campbell is set to recur on Fox’s Empire, the hip-hop drama from Lee Daniels and Danny Strong.

Empire centers around a hip-hop enterprise run by Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), who will stop at nothing to protect his dynasty. According to a press release from Fox, Campbell will play Camilla, “an alluring woman involved in a steamy affair with the much younger potential heir to his father’s throne, Hakeem (Bryshere Gray), over whom she exercises considerable influence.”

“Naomi is a beautiful actress. Underrated in my mind,” Daniels said in a statement. “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.”

Campbell will join a distinguished cast, which already includes Taraji P. Henson as Lucious’ ex-wife, Cookie Lyon, and Gabourey Sidibe as Lucious’ assistant, Becky.

Empire is set to premiere in early 2015 on Fox.

'The Originals' star Joseph Morgan hints at more flashbacks, bigger fights

When The Originals catches up with the Mikaelsons at the beginning of its second season, it’s safe to say that losing Hope hasn’t gotten any easier over the past four months. And not surprisingly, Klaus is ready for revenge. But with two parents and a new brother in town, Francesca isn’t going to be Klaus’ only problem this season.

We caught up with Joseph Morgan, who plays Klaus on the show, to talk about season two, Klaus’ parents, and the ultimate daddy showdown.


Bill Hader discusses 'SNL' newbie Pete Davidson, his own hosting debut

Over the weekend, all SNL-conscious beings were alerted to the presence of Pete Davidson, who made a big first impression during his first night on the show. And while we already know a fair amount about the 20-year-old Staten Island native, this morning Bill Hader—the alum who’ll be returning as host Oct. 11—told us a little bit more about Davidson’s SNL origin story.

“Pete Davidson—he’s in the movie Trainwreck,” Hader said, referring to the upcoming Judd Apatow-directed, Amy Schumer-starring comedy. “He has a small part in it. I told Lorne Michaels about him, said he was really funny. And then they auditioned him for a piece, and Lorne called me to say Pete got the show. I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s wonderful!'”

'The Walking Dead' showrunner Scott M. Gimple reveals 'time is scrambled up a little bit' in season 5

We are now less than two weeks away from the season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead. Because last season ended on a cliffhanger, details have been scarce. But we cornered showrunner Scott M. Gimple and got him to spill some intel about the upcoming episodes — just check out that cagey quote of his in the headline for one example. Read on as we talk to the big man in charge of The Walking Dead and try to pull some answers out of him. Also, could there be cursing this season?

'Castle' boss: Season 7 will reveal more of why Castle is the way he is

When you end a season on a cliffhanger as big as Castle’s car accident at the end of season six, it’s difficult to start the next season with a large time jump. And thankfully, Castle will pick up right where it left off, with Beckett, still in her wedding dress, realizing that Castle is no longer in the burning car. That being said, the episode, like most Castle episodes, won’t play in real time all the way through.

With the episode focusing on Beckett’s hunt to find Castle, there will be a minor time jump within the episode. EW spoke with executive producer David Amann about what to expect from Monday’s premiere and season seven as a whole. READ FULL STORY

Jon Hamm will appear in the 'Black Mirror' Christmas special

A computer in the Sterling Cooper & Partners office created some surreal situations on Mad Men this past season, but Jon Hamm’s not done with “techno-phobia.” Hamm will star alongside Game of Thrones‘s Oona Chaplin and actor Rafe Spall in the upcoming Christmas special of the British anthology series Black Mirror, Channel 4 announcedREAD FULL STORY

'Family Guy,' 'Once Upon' get big return ratings


Sunday night had two much-anticipated premieres with major brand cross-over elements and both stunts paid off big time: There was Fox’s Family Guy crossing over with longtime animated frenemy The Simpsons in a one-hour episode at 9 p.m., and the fourth season return of Once Upon a Time introducing its arc based on the Disney hit Frozen at 8 p.m.

Both shows jumped in the ratings compared to last fall, with Fox’s animated series coming out on top: Family Guy (8.4 million, 4.5 rating among adults 18-49) bounced a whopping 73 percent from last season’s premiere and ranked as the night’s No. 1 entertainment program. This is Family Guy‘s biggest rating in four years (here’s our take on the crossover). While Once Upon (9.3 million, 3.4) spiked an impressive 31 percent from last fall to mark its best ratings in nearly two years.

While Family Guy had larger ratings, in some ways this is better news for ABC’s show. Once Upon fell alarmingly in the numbers last season and it is rare for serialized dramas to stage a comeback. Plus, the Family Guy stunt was a one-time event, whereas the Frozen arc will continue through the first half of the season. Once Upon‘s ratings also grew over the course of the hour, which is a good sign that the show held the interest of curious Frozen fans. Check out EW’s Once Upon recap here. READ FULL STORY

Watch the trailer for 'Wedlock,' the least romantic web series ever


If you’re a fan for Sleepless in Seattle-esque tales of all-consuming love at first sight, you’re probably going to hate Wedlock.

The couple at the center of the Ross Partridge-directed web series aren’t falling in love — they’re carefully calculating every step to it. Mark Duplass and Jennifer Lafleur star as two friends who, now that they’re getting older, want to logically, systematically and not even a little bit romantically get married. They even have a handbook. Rob Corddry stars as their couples therapist, who, despite his reservations, guide them on their quest session by strange, strange session.

Check out a trailer below. The 10-episode series is available now on Vimeo on Demand.
