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
The ’90s might be over, but they live on in VH1′s upcoming Hindsight.
The series, which premieres on Jan. 7, 2015, follows Becca (Laura Ramsey), a thirtysomething who’s about to get married for the second time—until she wakes up on her first wedding day, in 1995.
Below, watch an exclusive first-look video full of ’90s references; think Say Anything, Walkman music players, and Ace of Base’s “I Saw the Sign.” READ FULL STORY
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.
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
The role of youngest Original sibling is currently being played by Daniel Sharman on The Originals, but for longtime fans of the Original family, they’ll remember back when Kol was a little more into biting necks than casting a spell. And it’s that version of Kol, played by Nathaniel Buzolic, that we’re going to see in the upcoming Kol-centric web series, The Originals: The Awakening.
In the four-part web series, which centers around Kol, we will find the Original in the French Quarter, only this time, it’s 1914 and he’s trying to form an alliance with the witches. According to The CW, “Fans will learn how and why Kol found himself in opposition to his vampire siblings, why he was daggered, and the unique back story he has with the witches.” The series will run parallel to the storyline of The Originals and will tie into the mid-season finale on Monday, Dec. 8.
For now, here’s an exclusive first look at the first segment of The Originals: The Awakening, in which Kol’s story begins.
We’re still talking about the final moments of last week’s How to Get Away with Murder. In a stunning climax, Annalise (the brilliant Viola Davis) sat at her vanity, removed all of her make-up (and her wig), then confronted her husband, Sam (Tom Verica), with this now-famous line, “Why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?” And now EW has exclusive video of what happens next.
To get all the answers (sorta!), check out the scene from tonight’s highly anticipated episode, airing at 10 p.m. ET on ABC: READ FULL STORY
One of the most anticipated and ambitious series of 2015 is Fox’s Empire. Created by Lee Daniels (The Butler) and Danny Strong (Game Change) and featuring original music by Timbaland, Empire is a soapy drama about a hip-hop mogul (The Best Man Holiday‘s Terrence Howard) who battles his estranged wife Cookie (No Good Deed‘s Taraji P. Henson) for control of their massively successful company. Watch the new teaser exclusively on EW: READ FULL STORY
Sure, original series like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black get all the digital ink, but Netflix’s strongest original programming lies in the incredible string of stand-up specials the service has premiered. Like HBO or Comedy Central before them, Netflix has become an outlet for long-form comedy for both established names (Aziz Ansari, Chelsea Handler, Marc Maron) and up-and-comers (Moshe Kasher, Jim Jeffries).
Add comic and compulsive podcaster Doug Benson to that list of talent. His new special, Doug Dynasty, will be premiering on Netflix on Nov. 6. If you know Benson, it’s either because you listen to one of his many EW-approved podcasts (including Doug Loves Movies and Getting Doug With High) or because you loved his fantastically funny film Super High Me. (He has also made a habit out of being one of the dominant panelists on @midnight.) READ FULL STORY
American Horror Story mastermind Ryan Murphy delivered a surprise for fans today: He debuted the Freak Show main titles on his Twitter feed. Different from previous years, the credits are all stop-motion animation and give the AHS theme music a slight circus twist. They’re stunning—somewhat reminiscent of A Nightmare Before Christmas. The elaborate opener is not surprising given that Murphy has said that this is AHS‘ biggest year yet. READ FULL STORY
When news broke that Mark-Paul Gosselaar would be guest-starring on the season 15 premiere of CSI not once, but twice, fans immediately had questions. And now, we have (at least physical) answers.
We’ve got an exclusive first look at Gosselaar’s time on the show, during which he plays twins Jared Briscoe and Paul Winthrop. And as the photos illustrate, one of the twins is more of the murdering type, while the other is described as a “pillar of the community who insists on his brother’s innocence,” according to CBS.
