It is about that time when actors for The Walking Dead are reassembling back in Atlanta to begin work on season 5 of the AMC zombie drama. With that in mind, we caught up with Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, recently and asked how much creator Robert Kirkman and showrunner Scott M. Gimple had told him about what to expect coming up. “A bit,” says Reedus. “Those guys are very good at telling you a bunch of stuff, and you sit there for an hour and you walk away and go, ‘What the hell did he just say? What’s going on?’ They’re very good at masking what they want to tell you.” (As someone that has interviewed both men several times, I can certainly attest to that.) READ FULL STORY

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.]
Sarah Manning was finally reunited with both her daughter Kira and her foster mother Mrs. S tonight on Orphan Black, but they did not have much time to celebrate as Siobhan’s former friends turned on them for cold, hard cash. But they were left cold, hard, and dead after S got through with them. Elsewhere, Cosima met Rachel for the first time, and Alison made the painful discovery that husband Donnie was her monitor — as opposed to best friend Aynsley, whom she let die. (Whoops!) We spoke with star Tatiana Maslany to get her take on Orphan Black’s second episode of season 2. READ FULL STORY
In last week’s Orphan Black premiere, we found out that Ukranian clone/clone assassin Helena was still alive after being shot in the heart by twin sister Sarah. But how? We got our answer this week. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday night’s episode of Orphan Black.]
What is a mirror twin? Why is Cosima working at the Dyad Institute? How come Mrs. S is all of a sudden killing people? And why finally let Alison in on the secret that husband Donnie is her monitor? We spoke to Orphan Black creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson to break down all of that from tonight’s episode and more.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start with Aynsley’s funeral and Alison seeing that text to Donnie leading to the light bulb going off in her head that’s he’s her monitor. Did you guys debate how long you wanted to keep her in the dark on this matter?
JOHN FAWCETT: The audience is ahead because the audience at the end of season 1 knows. There’s a big reveal right at the end of episode 10 where Donnie leaves the house and jogs down the street and gets into the car and we reveal to the audience that Donnie has of course been a lying bastard and is her monitor all along. And Aynsley is dead and Alison is burying all of this guilt. I think we realized that we had to reveal it to Alison quite quickly or quite early in the season and this seemed like a fun place to do it. Right in a public spot.
GRAEME MANSON: We didn’t want Alison too far behind for too long. READ FULL STORY
WHAT THE HELL?!?!? That may have been your reaction upon watching Orphan Black’s season 2 premiere. So allow me to issue the standard SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s Orphan Black season premiere.
Helena is not dead. REPEAT: Helena is not dead. And it turns out that was the master plan all along. Orphan Black creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett explain why they insisted on lying through their teeth when they told anyone who asked that the Ukranian clone/clone killer was indeed a goner after being shot by her twin sister Sarah in last season’s finale. They also tell us about that intense diner shoot out, Alison’s foray into musical theater, and their big cameo!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me, how does it feel to be big fat stinking liars by going around telling everyone that Helena was dead?
JOHN FAWCETT: It feels great.
GRAEME MANSON: Evil master plan. Evil master plan the whole way. READ FULL STORY
Orphan Black returned for season 2 tonight with a big shocker, and if you have yet to watch then you may not want to read any further. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s season 2 premiere of Orphan Black.]
She’s baaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, Ukranian clone/clone killer Helena was thought to be dead after being shot by Sarah in last season’s finale and left to die in a pool of her own blood. But SURPRISE! She’s alive, and that was just one of the twists. Sarah impersonated Cosima to lay the smackdown on Rachel, and Alison got Aynsley’s part in the local community musical. (Who says watching your bestie choke via a garbage disposal doesn’t have its advantages?) We chatted with star Tatiana Maslany to get her thoughts on the big premiere episode. READ FULL STORY
It’s hard getting people to notice you when you are a new show on a small cable channel, but BBC America’s Orphan Black was able to gain a devoted fan base with its twisty tale of a woman discovering she is part of a clone conspiracy. Star Tatiana Maslany in particular gained industry recognition for her portrayal of seven different characters in season 1. So what will she and the show do for an encore when season 2 kicks off on tonight? Maslany already shared some intel on the new clone , told us what she thinks she can do even better in season 2, and also revealed her current favorite clone to play. Now she tells us what else to expect in season 2. READ FULL STORY
'Orphan Black': Creators reveal more secrets from the set (like that Delphine was originally a 'kooky Asian scientist')
How much of that science on Orphan Black is actually real? How long does it take to film a scene with multiple clones? What clones did Tatiana Maslany play in her audition? And which other OB cast member auditioned for the role of Sarah Manning? In part 2 of our joint conversation leading into the season 2 premiere on April 19, co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett chatted about all this and more from their on-set office in Toronto. (Check out part 1 right here.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How much do you guys look at what is happening in the world of science and how much do you incorporate that?
GRAEME MANSON: We want it to be as grounded as possible in real science, but we aren’t afraid to take that one step over the line into science fiction. And part of that is having these characters react realistically to these concepts, not just having the scientific reality. So it’s something that we try very hard to do. When you keep at it, it’s strange how you do rub up against reality.
JOHN FAWCETT: Things are moving so quickly from the medical and science point of view, so the realities of things are so much closer than you would think. READ FULL STORY
We’ll be seeing a lot of Sarah’s sassy foster brother Felix when Orphan Black returns for season 2 on April 19. But then again, we always see a lot of Felix…especially when he happens to be wearing an apron (with nothing else). So exactly…um, how much more of Felix will we be seeing? We caught up with Jordan Gavaris, who plays Fe, in his trailer during a break in filming to get some scoop on what we can expect from Felix when season 2 premieres on BBC America on April 19. (Also make sure to check out Part 1 of our interview, in which Gavaris talks about perfecting his fake English accent and working with all the various clones.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, most important question first: Will we have more pantless Felix in season 2?
JORDAN GAVARIS: They love my bum! I don’t know why. I mean I do a bit of work on my bum, but, like, I don’t have a Dylan Bruce bum. They love Felix’s bum so much and I’m so proud that they’re using my body as a means of comedy. That makes me feel really sexually secure. READ FULL STORY
In what city does Orphan Black take place? What is the process of mapping out an entire season? And why the heck is Sarah British? While sitting in their joint office on the Toronto set, show creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson shed light on all of these topics as well as several others in preparation for season 2, which premieres April 19 on BBC America. READ FULL STORY
When Tatiana Maslany reported to duty for season 1 of Orphan Black, she didn’t know if anyone would even take notice. After all, it was a new show from Canada airing on a channel (BBC America) that had only recently jumped into the original programming game. She could only guess what the reaction would be as she filmed that first season. That was certainly not the case when the cast and crew reunited for filming on season 2 (which premieres April 19). Rapturous reviews and a devoted #CloneClub let them know that there was indeed an audience following their every move. So how did that change the vibe on set for the second go-round of episodes? We asked Maslany that and more when we sat down on the Felix’s loft set during a break in filming. READ FULL STORY
Max Greenfield broke out as New Girl‘s endearing d-bag Schmidt, but Tuesday night he’ll pull double duty as he takes on a swaggering, be-scared guest role on The Mindy Project.
Coincidentally, both new episodes deal with the fallout of two break-ups. In New Girl‘s “Big News,” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) have to come clean that they’re just friends again, resulting in a “devastated” Schmidt. As for Mindy, “Think Like a Peter” follows Dr. L (Mindy Kaling) under the tutelage of her frat bro colleague Peter (Adam Pally), who tries to get the rom-com obsessive into the male mindset and maybe even help her score with Lee (Greenfield’s “first-grade teacher who is up to no good”).
“It was a good threesome,” Greenfield teases of his chemistry with Kaling and Pally. “It was fun to do something totally different. I’m sure there’s some Schmidt[-like] stuff in there, but I really don’t [think] there’s a moment when you go, ‘Oh, that’s the same guy from New Girl.’”
Judge for yourself as you watch an exclusive Mindy clip below, then keep reading for more scoop on both Fox favorites. READ FULL STORY
Watch out, Sarah! Because there will be some new baddies on the scene when Orphan Black returns for season 2 on April 19. And these baddies could very well be coming from different directions. On one hand, we will be introduced to a new, more dangerous breed of Prolethean. And on the other, we will go higher up on the Dyad Institute food chain to meet “Rachel’s creepy boss.” Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett sat down with us to share some intel on all the new faces — including one who may or may not be friendly. He also spoke about meeting Orphan Black fans up close for the very first time and what else to expect in season 2. READ FULL STORY
We all have our favorite clone on Orphan Black. For many, it is funky bisexual scientist Cosima. For others — like myself — stressed out soccer mom Alison gets top billing. And still others gravitate toward punk protagonist Sarah. But if you ask the woman who plays them all, Tatiana Maslany, who her favorite clone is lately, you’ll get a surprising answer: Rachel.
