They are determined to find each other. And if that means forcing everyone else to go along with their search, then SO BE IT! Maggie and Glenn will be together again! Or so they hope. The woman who plays Maggie, Lauren Cohan, stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio studios (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk all about tonight’s episode of the zombie drama and the evolution of her character. “It’s really the first time we’ve seen Maggie outside of the family Greene and without Glenn,” says Cohan.

A lot of movie directors have been dabbling in television lately. But how many start their own freakin’ TV network? That would be one. And that one would be Robert Rodriguez. The director and now founder of the El Rey network stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this week to talk all about his new “video mix tape” and the super-cool programming they have in store. Of course, at the top of this super-cool list is a new TV version of his 1996 cult classic From Dusk Till Dawn (starring George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino, with a screenplay by Tarantino).
So how similar or different will the TV series be? “The film, you only have a limited time to tell a story, and any character that Quentin creates, they can live and breathe for so much more than that,” says Rodriguez. “And so I decided to take the idea of the movie, retell it in a way, add new characters and have different things happen to characters you know and love, and really set up the story to sustain itself for several seasons. We get a lot more into the mythology of the temple where they go, and build up that mythology. You see some sign posts to what the movie had offered story-wise, but it goes in completely different directions.” READ FULL STORY
The war between Sarah and Rachel will be heating up when BBC America’s Orphan Black returns with its season 2 premiere on April 19. We showed you the exclusive first look at that war a few months back, and now Entertainment Weekly’s Instagram account has an exclusive video sneak peek of the scene in question, as Sarah confronts Rachel — courtesy of a slap across the cheek and a gun pointed at the face. And judging by that logo on a monitor in the background, in looks like said confrontation is taking place at none other than the Dyad Institute itself. Clone-on-clone action, people! READ FULL STORY

Counting down the days until the return of Orphan Black? We’ve got over two months left until season 2 of the BBC America clone drama premieres on April 19, but one of the key players insists the wait will be worth it. “Season 2 of Orphan Black is like season 1 on crack,” promises Maria Doyle Kennedy, who plays Sarah’s foster mom, the mysterious Mrs. S.
That was just one of the tidbits Kennedy dropped when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to chat about the show as well as her music career. Another tidbit? Looks like we can expect more Mrs. S in season 2. “You’re going to see more of her,” says Kennedy. “I had a great time in season 1 and there were some great scenes, but there was also a lot of hovering. They just really liked me so wrote me more this time, so that’s great.” READ FULL STORY

Good news, Glenn Rhee! You have survived the killer virus that was spreading throughout the prison! Congratulations! Oh, but just one little thing: your girlfriend’s dad was just beheaded and a giant tank escorted by a one-eyed lunatic and flesh-eating zombies pretty much destroyed your home. Oh yeah, and one other thing: WHERE ARE YOU?!?
When we last saw Glenn, he was waiting on a bus to evacuate the prison, but where is he now as the action picks back up again this Sunday with The Walking Dead‘s midseason premiere? Judging by the photo above, it doesn’t look good. We made like a pack of zombies ourselves and cornered the man who plays Glenn, Steven Yeun, and forced him to share some intel as to what we can expect in the back half of season 4. So share he did. (Also make sure to check out our ‘Walking Dead’ preview interviews with Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, and producers Scott Gimple and Robert Kirkman.) READ FULL STORY
So, you just watched your father have his head cut off. Your boyfriend recently was about one more cough away from death himself, and who knows where the hell he is now. Your home has been totaled by a tank and a herd of flesh-eating zombies. And now — somehow, someway — you have to keep yourself alive. That’s where things stand for Maggie Greene when The Walking Dead returns Sunday night for the last eight episodes of season 4. We spoke with Lauren Cohan (who also will be guest-starring soon on Archer) to get some insight into what’s going on in Maggie’s head as the action picks back up. The actress tells us what’s in store while also recounting the emotional goodbye to her on-screen father. (Also make sure to check out our ‘Walking Dead’ preview interviews with Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, and producers Scott Gimple and Robert Kirkman.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, Lauren, we pick things up here as the prison is falling and everyone is seeking shelter and safety. What does that mean for Maggie?
LAUREN COHAN: All that Maggie knows right now is that she has lost her father, maybe her sister, maybe her husband. We are going to see her battling and be the most alone we’ve ever seen her. Not necessarily completely alone, but at times we’ll see her the most alone she’s been. How she’s going to survive by herself? It’s going to be very scary. They’re not at the prison anymore.

Good news, Walking Dead fans. Answers are coming! Is Baby Judith dead or alive? Will we ever find out who was feeding rats to zombies at the prison? What was that mysterious radio signal Daryl picked up in the car? Not only are these answers coming, but new characters from the comic like fan favorite Abraham are coming as well when the AMC drama returns with its final eight episodes of season 4 starting on Feb. 9. We chatted with Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple to get the scoop on what’s in store — for both the survivors and viewers. (Click through both pages to read the entire interview. And also make sure to check out our midseason preview Q&As with Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Andrew Lincoln, and exec-producer Robert Kirkman.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So it looks like these next eight episodes to close out season 4 are going to have a bit of a different structure and tone, correct?
SCOTT GIMPLE: Structurally, yes this will be very different. I think the tone is actually varied. And in that variety it’s very different. There are some bright sweet moments and there are — shock upon shock — some smiles. There’s also some of the darkest material we’ve ever written as well. It really runs the gamut. I love how we’ve been able to do essentially eight little movies. Structurally, something that we get from this is beginnings, middles, and ends in each episode. Thus, because we’re telling all these different stories, not one story cut into eight, there’s a lot of different variety. READ FULL STORY
It’s sad watching people die on The Walking Dead. But when some characters die off, new ones emerge and take their place. So while we mourn the most recent loss of Hershel, we can at least look forward to the appearance of three familiar faces from the comic book on which the show is based. (Faces like Abraham, as played by Michael Cudlitz — see photo above.) We chatted with Walking Dead exec producer Robert Kirkman to get the scoop on the newbies as well as everything else we need to know heading into the last eight episodes of season 4, which kick off this Sunday on AMC. (Click through both pages to read the entire interview. And also make sure to check out our midseason preview Q&As with Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, and Andrew Lincoln.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I’ve spoken with a lot of the cast recently and everyone has talked about how the final eight episodes are tonally different from the first eight. Can you talk about that a bit and how they may feel a bit different?
ROBERT KIRKMAN: It’s all of our characters scattered to the winds. Everybody’s separated and so we’re actually doing a lot of really intense, character focusing episodes. So because they’re separated there will be episodes that focus on different people. There will be episodes that focus on different groups at a time when they’re in their worst situation yet. We’re really going to really drill down into them and get to know them much more than we’ve gotten to know them before. I think after the end of these eight episodes you’re going to be acutely aware of who these people are and I think they’re going to be some really shocking revelations about what makes people tick and who they really are at their core.

The survivors on The Walking Dead haven’t had a lot to laugh about lately, what with one of their own being executed and the loss of the prison fortress they called home. However, one of the actresses on the show recently had an opportunity to explore her comedic side when she went in to record a multi-episode arc for FX’s Archer. Who is that mystery actress? Well, judging by the photo above you’ve probably already figured it out: It’s Lauren Cohan, who plays farmer’s daughter turned complete badass Maggie Greene on the zombie drama. READ FULL STORY
