We already made the big reveal last week that about a new clone named Jennifer Fitzsimmons being introduced on season 2 of Orphan Black, but the creators of the show — Graeme Manson and John Fawcett — may not be stopping there. The duo called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), and when asked whether there may be even more clones introduced in season 2, they indicated that there indeed could be hope for additional sightings. “If one were going to go fishing for a new clone in our pond,” says Manson, “you might have a chance of catching another.” READ FULL STORY
Tag: Gillian Anderson (1-7 of 7)
There’s probably a good reason why NBC.com doesn’t go into detail about the characters on the network’s new drama Crisis, premiering March 16 at 10 p.m. ET — and presumably it’s because most of them aren’t exactly who they seem.
The story is set in motion when a bus carrying the children of Washington, D.C.’s elite — students at Ballard High, including the president’s son — is ambushed. Taken hostage, they’ll be used as leverage: Imagine what powerful parents can be convinced to do when their children are in danger. Gillian Anderson stars as Meg Fitch, the CEO of an international IT company whose daughter is kidnapped and whose estranged sister (Rachael Taylor) is an FBI agent assigned to the investigation. “Meg is no exception: I think that all the characters’ lives go in a very different trajectory after this event happens,” Anderson says. “Meg is used to being in control of everything in her life and being able to pick up the phone and make things happen, and she can’t really do that right now in this situation. You see her try to over a few episodes, and there are consequences to that, let’s just say. And because of those consequences, a different part of Meg comes out that we don’t see at the beginning.” READ FULL STORY
On March 16, NBC will premiere Crisis, the new drama starring Gillian Anderson, Dermot Mulroney, Lance Gross, and Rachael Taylor, which imagines what powerful parents can be convinced to do when their children are in danger. Below, watch a sneak peek of the ambush that sets the story in motion during a field trip for the students of Ballard High — the children of Washington, D.C.’s elite, among them the president’s son.

Three months after celebrating their sci-fi classic’s 20th anniversary at Comic-Con, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are reuniting once again.
This time, the pair that brought Mulder and Scully to life will appear together at New York City’s Paley Center, where they’ll discuss “the iconic sci-fi series that largely defined the paranoid thriller for the nineties, and whose influence can still be felt in supernatural dramas airing today,” according to the event’s official description.
Mulder and Scully fans, the truth is out there…and it’s at Comic-Con.
TV Guide will host a Comic-Con panel celebrating the 20th anniversary of The X-Files, according to an ad in the magazine. Scheduled to appear at the chat, which will take place July 18, are series creator Chris Carter, as well as writer/producers David Amann, Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban, Jim Wong as well as more yet-to-be-announced guests.
The question on everyone’s minds, of course, is if series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will make an appearance. Although not listed in the ad, EW has confirmed that Gillian Anderson will be in attendance; a rep for David Duchovny did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation. Don’t let us down, Special Agent Mulder!

InsideTV Podcast: Jeff Probst reveals the big 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water' twist. Plus: Joss Whedon and Gillian Anderson!
Jeff Probst was cagey when he announced the title of the next season of Survivor as Blood vs. Water and showed a clip of blood mixing with water that looked vaguely like a promo for Showtime’s Dexter. But he is cagey no longer! When I traveled on location last week for filming of the upcoming season and spoke to Probst for an interview that ran today on Entertainment Weekly’s new SiriusXM channel 105, I was shocked to hear him go ahead and reveal the big twist for all to hear. “I think it’s okay to say that it is going to be family members,” said Probst of the next season’s cast. “And they’ll end up playing against each other.” Whose family members? you may ask. Well, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler tells EW that Survivor: Blood vs. Water will indeed feature “the return of great characters and their relatives.” So there you have it: The cast will be a mix of returning players and their loved ones. Which returning players? Well, Probst isn’t quite ready to spill on that, but you can hear him talk about the new season and twist right here on the InsideTV Podcast replay of that EW Radio chat.

The return of Dana Scully?
Not quite — but ex-X-Files star Gillian Anderson is making a move to return to network TV, via an untitled Rand Ravich/Far Shariat thriller for NBC. EW has confirmed that Anderson is set to star in the pilot, which centers on a massive kidnapping. The Emmy winner plays a CEO whose daughter is among the victims.
Anderson has certainly had a busy pilot season. In December, EW revealed that she had booked a multi-episode arc on Hannibal, Bryan Fuller’s upcoming serial killer thriller — which will also air on NBC. But while Anderson is only guesting on the Silence of the Lambs prequel, she’ll be a series regular in Ravich and Shariat’s thriller — which, if it’s picked up, would mark her first starring role on network TV since The X-Files departed Fox in 2002.
