'Once Upon a Time' extended season four synopsis: 7 things we learned

The world of Once Upon a Time will soon come back to life—and with plenty of new faces in tow.

ABC has just released an extended synopsis of the show’s upcoming fourth season, which will introduce Frozen’s Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff, as well as Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’s Will Scarlet. (His reunion with Robin Hood should be interesting, since the two didn’t leave each other on the best of terms.)

What’s in store for the residents of Storybrooke? Here are the seven juiciest details we learned from the new logline:

'Grey's Anatomy': Are Meredith and Derek headed for divorce?

Could Mer and Der be on the road to a huge breakup?

When we left the couple in the last Grey’s Anatomy finale, Meredith finally stood up for herself, telling Derek that she doesn’t want to move to Washington, D.C.—where he had been offered a full-time position by POTUS. (Not Scandal’s Fitz, but we can still dream!)

And in season 11—being dubbed “The Year of Meredith”—the stalwart doc will no longer take a backseat to her husband’s career, which may cause strife in their relationship. However, executive producer Shonda Rhimes promises that this doesn’t mean the end of everyone’s favorite McCouple.

See the 'Once Upon a Time' gang's wicked season 3 gag reel

Epic tales of the endless struggle between good and evil don’t always leave a lot of room for laughs. That’s where this video comes in.

Below, see an exclusive first look at Once Upon a Time‘s season-three gag reel, a short, sweet montage of your favorite fairy tale characters (including Ginnifer Goodwin’s Snow White, Joanna Garcia’s Ariel, Lana Parilla’s Evil Queen Regina, Sean Maguire’s Robin Hood, and, of course, Colin O’Donoghue’s Captain Hook) getting goofy on the set of ABC’s magical fantasy. There’ll be even more of The Fairest Bloopers of Them All on the series’ season three DVD/Blu-ray set, which also includes deleted scenes and a featurette about OUAT‘s deliciously wicked villains.

Meet the pros for season 19 of 'Dancing With the Stars'

Dancing With the Stars is a little over a month away from kicking off its 19th season—and earlier today, on Good Morning America, we got our first glimpse at which 12 professional dancers will be twirling ex-actors, current actors, athletes, hosts, and more around that ballroom floor in hopes of eventually taking home the coveted Mirrorball Trophy.

For devoted fans of the show, there’s good and bad news. The bad: Maksim Chmerkovskiy decided against surprising the world and returning to the show. But at least his last routine was his best? READ FULL STORY

'Black Box' canceled by ABC

Black-Box

ABC is packing away Black Box.

We’re told the network has officially canceled the soap, which attempted to fill the high-profile Scandal slot on Thursday nights. The midseason series starred Kelly Reilly as a sex-crazed bipolar genius neurologist (no, really!). All 13 episodes of the first season aired, with the finale running July 24, and ABC confirmed Thursday it will not order a second round.

The series was created by Amy Holden Jones and produced by Ilene Chaiken, Bryan Singer, Oly Obst, and Anne Thomopoulos. The show’s in-season episodes averaged 7.1 million viewers yet only a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 when including DVR playback.

Kate Burton returning to 'Grey's Anatomy' as Ellis Grey

Grey’s Anatomy fans had a love-hate (but mostly hate) relationship with Meredith’s mother, Ellis Grey. On the one hand, we had her to thank for the fact that Meredith was dark and twisty in the first place, not to mention the great drama that came along with her Alzheimer’s, generally crappy parenting, and, of course, her love affair with Richard. But in season three, both fans and Meredith let go of Ellis for good when she died, met up with Meredith in the afterlife, and finally approved of her daughter. So you can imagine our surprise when we found out that we’ll be seeing Ellis again fairly soon.

EW has confirmed that Kate Burton will reprise her role as Ellis Grey in the upcoming season 11 premiere of Grey’s. According to TV Guide, Ellis will appear in flashbacks. And based on the fact that the season 10 finale introduced a new head of cardio who also just happened to be Richard and Ellis’ long-lost love child, it’s possible the flashbacks will have something to do with new doc Margaret Pierce (played by Kelly McCreary).

Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Clare Crawley talks Juan Pablo in 'Bachelor In Paradise' deleted clip

Bachelor fans know Clare Crawley well. After all, she was often the center of attention in one of the show’s most controversial seasons, featuring Bachelor Juan Pablo. From her late night/early morning swim with Juan Pablo to her feud with his eventual pick, Nikki Ferrell, Clare made her presence known. But will she do the same on Bachelor In Paradise?

We’ve got an exclusive deleted clip from the Bachelor In Paradise premiere, in which Clare talks about putting Juan Pablo’s “bullsh–” behind her and still believing love is waiting for her. READ FULL STORY

Photos: 'Once Upon a Time' reveals Elsa, Kristoff, and obviously the reindeer

When it comes to reindeer, you know at least one. Technically, you probably know nine. But now, you definitely know 10, because a new charming caribou has entered the wintry ring. This fall… coming to a TV near you… it’s… SVEN.

The lovable reindeer is part of a whole slew of characters from the smash Disney movie Frozen, who will be joining the cast of ABC’s fairy tale saga Once Upon a Time for a large arc this fall. Snow Queen Elsa, friendly neighborhood mountain man Kristoff, wide-eyed bridezilla Anna, and the villainous (both in personality and in sideburns) Hans are among the ensemble who will join the show when season four hits the air on September 28. And, of course, the actors playing them (Georgina Haig, Scott Michael Foster, Elizabeth Lail, and Tyler Jacob Moore) will also be involved somehow. The storyline will also feature Elizabeth Mitchell in a still-mysterious role and John Rhys-Davies as patriarchal troll Pabbie.

Finally, after months of anticipation and Tumblring, ABC has unveiled the first official photos of some of these Frozen favorites in costume. We don’t know what’s going on, exactly—the Frozen arc picks up some time after the film’s events have already occurred—but we can sure guess! READ FULL STORY

ABC's 'The Quest:' I'd rather be LARPing

It’s a pretty good time for fantasy on television. Not since the heady days of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess have we had so many swords, fortresses, and leather jerkins on our TVs at once—during prime time nonetheless. Enter ABC’s The Quest, a reality show that promises something new: a carefully crafted fantasy world that 12 contestants enter to compete for the honor of being the One True Hero, who will wield the Sunspear and banish evil from the world of Everealm.

At first, I was worried the show was going to be condescending—look at these contestants giving themselves over to the fantasy, committing to the roles, isn’t that goofy? Definitely not something normal people would do. But that fear turned out to be baseless. Instead, The Quest does something worse: It makes fantasy really, really, boring. READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' actress joins ABC's 'Resurrection'

Michelle Fairley’s TV career is getting resurrected once again!

First the actress was killed off as Catelyn Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Then she had an arc on USA’s Suits. Then she played a terrorist on Fox’s 24: Live Another Day—and was killed off again.

Now Fairley is joining the second season of ABC’s Resurrection. She will recur on the show as Margaret Langston, described as “the formidable matriarch of the Langston clan … mother of Henry and Fred (Kurtwood Smith, Matt Craven), and dead for over three decades, she will reappear in Arcadia as one of the returned. Margaret brings with her knowledge of the Langston family’s dark past, a past she is determined to keep hidden. Her return will have consequences for the entire family.”

Resurrection returns to ABC on Sunday, Sept. 28.

'Toy Story' meets 'Jurassic Park' in poster for new TV special

Last fall, ABC aired a charming Halloween special starring the Toy Story franchise’s beloved playthings. Its ratings success has paved the way for another half-hour that’ll air on the network later this holiday season—and this one has more dinos than the first.

The second special, called Toy Story That Time Forgot, finds the heroes tangling with a gang of new action figures led by Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd). Much like Buzz Lightyear in the franchise’s first film, Reptillus and his crew don’t know that they’re just toys—which causes some major complications, especially among the gang’s prehistoric set (Kristen Schaal’s Trixie and Wallace Shawn’s Rex).

You can catch your first glimpse at the mighty Reptillus in the special Comic-Con poster above, which debuted on TVLine. If the image looks vaguely familiar, that’s because it was designed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

McKidd and Schaal—not to mention copies of the poster—will be on hand for an hourlong Q&A about Toy Story That Time Forgot in San Diego Thursday, along with director Steve Purcell (who also helmed Brave), head of story Derek Thompson, producer Galyn Susman, and composer Michael Giacchino.

Though there’s no premiere date set yet, Toy Story That Time Forgot is expected to air in December.

Critics push ABC to explain diverse fall lineup—and how Jewish 'The Goldbergs' are

ABC has one of the most diverse fall programming slates in TV history, and critics want to know why.

At the Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday, ABC chief Paul Lee fielded questions from reporters pushing for a more detailed explanation for why ABC greenlit three ethnic family comedies (Anthony Anderson’s Black-ish, Cristela Alonzo’s Cristela, and Eddie Huang’s Fresh Off the Boat, coming midseason), plus another drama series starring a black actress, Shonda Rhimes’ How to Get Away with Murder.

“We’re taking a very good step along that journey,” Lee told critics at the Beverly Hilton on Tuesday. “To be able to pull this off, you need not just stars on air… you need storytellers and executives”—such as the ones present at that very panel. “I’m very proud—if you look at the back of the room [referencing the various executives in attendance], it’s a very diverse group of people,” Lee continued. “You need the people telling the stories to truly reflect America as it is.” READ FULL STORY
