Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the midseason finale of How to Get Away with Murder, including the identity of the killer. Read at your own risk!
How to Get Away with Murder finally revealed Sam Keating’s killer tonight—but the ABC freshman drama also left viewers with a head-scratching, yet shocking revelation before going off the air until 2015.
Last night was a wild American Horror Story: Freak Show, to say the least. Not only did we witness the death of—SPOILER ALERT—tiny Ma Petite, but we were also treated to Freak Show‘s latest musical number: Evan Peters’ Jimmy Darling tried his hand at singing Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.” Elsa (Jessica Lange) wasn’t too impressed…but we were. EW has the exclusive performance from last night’s Freak Show below. READ FULL STORY
Parks and Recreation is going a little mad in its final season.
Jon Hamm is set to reprise his brief role as inept National Parks employee Ed, EW has learned exclusively.
BBC America released a first look image for Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, a seven-part original drama series based on the bestselling novel by British author Susanna Clarke, premiering in 2015. The series, set in a reimagined 19th century England, was adapted to the screen by Peter Harness (Wallander, Is Anybody There?) and directed by Toby Haynes (Dr. Who). It stars Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan, The World’s End) as Jonathan Strange and Bertie Carvel (Les Misérables, Matilda) as Mr Norrell.
The Hugo Award-winning novel, named Time‘s Novel of the Year when it was published in 2004, offers a fantastical alternate history of England during the Napoleonic wars—one in which practical magic, revered but thought to have died out, is brought back by the titular pair. Jonathan Strange contains elements of Romance and Gothic literature, as well as fantasy and historical fiction. BBC America sets up the plot for us in the press release:
“The reclusive Mr Norrell (Marsan) of Hurtfew Abbey stuns the city of York when he causes the statues of York Cathedral to speak and move. With a little persuasion and help from his man of business Childermass (Enzo Cilenti), he goes to London to help the government in the war against Napoleon. It is there Norrell summons a fairy ([Marc] Warren) to bring Lady Pole ([Alice] Englert) back from the dead, opening a whole can of worms…”
Nicholas Brendon is heading to Hester High, and EW has the exclusive first look.
Some of American Horror Story: Freak Show‘s most talked-about moments this season have been the Baz Luhrmann-esque musical numbers, like Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” or Sarah Paulson’s version of Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.” Another major modern artist is covered in tonight’s installment of AHS—Evan Peters, who plays Jimmy Darling, croons Nirvana’s classic “Come As You Are.” It’s part of a crucial episode for Jimmy (and for Peters, who’s excellent) as well as Michael Chiklis’ Dell Toledo.
And there’s more music to come: Kathy Bates—yes Kathy Bates—will be doing Hole’s “Doll Parts” in an upcoming episode. As Ryan Murphy explained to EW, “We decided we only were going to highlight musical artists who at some point in their career had identified themselves as feeling like freaks or misfits or outcasts, which our people are going through.”
American Horror Story: Freak Show airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on FX.
Merrin Dungey has joined the cast of Once Upon a Time in a recurring role, EW has learned exclusively.
Stuart Townsend has landed a multi-episode arc on Elementary, EW has learned exclusively.
Necessary Roughness star Callie Thorne has landed a guest-starring role on NCIS: New Orleans, EW has learned exclusively.
For Parenthood‘s Sarah Braverman, finding the right guy hasn’t been easy. First, there was Seth, Drew and Amber’s absentee father who left Sarah alone to raise their kids. And after Seth, there were really only two other serious relationships for Sarah: Mark, and now, Hank.
Parenthood fans know both of them well. Sarah was engaged to Mark before eventually choosing Hank. But now that she and Hank are back together—and dealing with life with Hank’s daughter, Ruby—what will Mark’s return mean for the couple? READ FULL STORY
