'Reign': Adelaide Kane previews Mary's first attempt at blackmail, familial visitors, and Bash and Kenna's 'bonding'

When we last left Reign, King Henry had nearly lost his mind (and quite literally lost his shoes) when he forced Sebastian and Kenna to get married. And, of course, we can’t forget that he appointed a servant named Penelope as his new rightful queen. But believe it or not, this week, Henry is not Mary’s greatest concern. Instead, Mary discovers a new clause in her marriage contract and decides to dip a toe in the blackmail pool that Catherine knows all too well.

We chatted with Adelaide Kane about Mary’s first taste of royal power, her upcoming visitors, and what Bash’s marriage could mean for our favorite love triangle (love square?): READ FULL STORY

'Reign' star Alan Van Sprang on Henry's clarity; plus, watch Catherine advise his new ... queen? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

At this point, there are two big threats in the world of Reign: The Darkness and King Henry. One is a pagan creature we’ve yet to really see; the other is the handsome man who sits on the throne by day and partakes in life-or-death sexcapades by night. But what’s in store now that Bash has had his first experience with The Darkness — and Henry has explained his feelings of divine entitlement?

We talked with Alan Van Sprang about Henry’s future, the newest woman in his life, and of course, that one time he humped a woman out of a window.

'Reign' star Anna Popplewell reveals [spoiler!] is getting married, talks Francis and Mary's 'happily ever after'

Reign‘s newest royal couple, Francis and Mary, just got back from their honeymoon, and things are already looking grim. For starters, Bash is still in love with Mary — even though he ended the last episode by kissing a hot hunter — and Lola has admitted that she is pregnant with Francis’ child. Add all that to the fact that King Henry just humped a woman out of a window to her death, and we’ve got some very exciting drama ahead of us.

To talk about what comes next for the very pregnant Lola, and what Olivia was saying about the darkness, we caught up with Anna Popplewell (Lola). She told us all about the love triangle, Henry’s “misbehaviors,” and an upcoming wedding: READ FULL STORY

'Reign': Megan Follows, Torrance Coombs talk Clarissa, Olivia's return, a Francis-Lola connection, and more

It’s just about time to return to France, and therefore, the complicated lives of our favorite royals (and not-so-royals). When we last visited Reign, Francis was no where to be found, Clarissa was outed as Catherine’s daughter, and Mary was taking a bath. Well, that was before her bath was poisoned by Queen Catherine, who was quickly reprimanded and taken to chambers as Bash rescued his beloved.

So what does the rest of the season hold for the doomed Catherine, her disfigured daughter, and the always evolving love triangle? We caught up, separately, with Megan Follows (Catherine) and Torrance Coombs (Bash) to talk about Catherine’s future, Mary’s decision, and Francis’ surprising new relationship: READ FULL STORY

'Reign': Caitlin Stasey talks Clarissa's 'startling' backstory, Mary's 'misleading' mother, and Kenna's future

So far, Reign has taught us all about the lives of royals (and, of course, the Queen’s ladies). Inside the castle walls, things are complicated, sexy, dangerous, elaborate, creepy, beautiful, suspicious, poisonous, and, of course, well dressed. However, with Bash and Mary’s potential marriage threatening Catherine’s family, things only promise to get more dramatic in the future. In the remaining episodes, fans can expect new faces, new backstories, and an uncertain future for Kenna.

'Reign' star Adelaide Kane slams boycott rumors on Twitter: 'We NEED ratings'

Just last week, Reign returned from hiatus with a bit of a new direction. After spending the first half of the show’s premiere season telling the Mary-Francis love story, Mary now plans to marry Francis’ brother Sebastian in order to take the crown. However strategic her decision might be, this change of course has caused some discomfort among Francis (and Frary) fans, and Reign star Adelaide Kane seems to think things have gone too far.

After hearing rumors that some fans were boycotting Thursday night’s episode due to its lack of Francis, Kane took to Twitter to express her disappointment in those fans, as well as to emphasize just how much ratings matter to the show. Read her tweets below:

Amy Brenneman joins The CW's 'Reign' as Mary's mother

It looks like France needs to prepare for a Scottish invasion. Mary’s mother is on her way!

Amy Brenneman took to Twitter to announce that she will be playing Marie de Guise in Reign, the hit CW series. At this point, we don’t know much about Mary Queen of Scot’s mommy dearest, other than the fact that Mary writes to her and/or is “pretending” to write to her in order to fool the Queen of France, a.k.a. the woman desperate to keep Mary from marrying her son.

But there is one thing that’s certain: If Mary gets her spunk from her mama, then we suggest Queen Catherine watch her back. Read Brenneman’s tweet below:

'Reign' sneak peek: Francis and Mary kiss it out -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Thursday’s episode of Reign, Francis pushes Mary to make the decision that’s best for her country — not her heart. But a note, Francis: If this is truly your opinion, maybe don’t lead your case with a big smooch? I mean, that’s not fair.

'Vampire Diaries' tops NBC sitcoms; 'Reign' disappoints

reign.jpg

Reign couldn’t hand The CW a big premiere rating Thursday night.

The soapy castle drama received 2 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, down 33 percent from the premiere of Beauty and the Beast in this slot last fall. Yet lead-in The Vampire Diaries posted a major gain: The vampire drama had 2.8 million viewers and a 1.3 in the demo. That’s up 30 percent. TVD beat NBC’s ailing sitcoms and edged out the second episode of ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland in the 8 p.m. hour.

TVD‘s success makes Reign‘s numbers all the more disappointing — you would think more viewers would have stuck around to check out the new show. But so far this fall, The CW has seen both The Originals and The Vampire Diaries premiere modest, then grow in subsequent episodes, so perhaps that will happen with Reign as well. (Much more on Reign and the fallout from that masturbation flap below).

Lousy news for Wonderland, though. ABC’s Once Upon spinoff dropped 29 percent from last week’s premiere. Wonderland was followed by Grey’s Anatomy (down a little) and Scandal (up a little and hitting its second-best numbers ever).

'Reign' boss defends show's relaxed approach to historical accuracy

CW’s upcoming drama Reign centers on the story of a young Mary Queen of Scots, but today producers defended the series against critics who said the show often ignores historical facts.

“I think each episode will educate people on what element of history helps our story and I think there is a certain amount of latitude in terms of dramatizing events,” executive producer Laurie McCarthy said today during  the show’s panel during the TCA press tour. “There are many things that never made it onto the pages of history, and I also wondered what was the castle was like on a Tuesday morning, what were they wearing when they weren’t getting their pictures taken.”

Adelaide Kane, who plays Mary added: “It’s also TV, so it’s kind of like, we can take creative license. It’s entertainment; it’s not the history channel. We’re trying to make a show people will enjoy watching and really connect with and find really fun.”

CW period drama 'Reign' casts two recurring characters

CW’s upcoming drama Reign is one of the most buzzed about young adult shows of the upcoming TV season — described by some as a Gossip Girl-meets-Downton soap — and two new actors have just joined its ranks.

EW has learned exclusively that Luke Roberts, best known for his 12-season run on BBC medical drama Holby City, is set to recur on the show as Simon Westbrook, a handsome and quietly menacing English diplomat  on the show, which tells the story of  Mary Stuart, the woman who would eventually go on to be known as Mary, Queen of Scots. According to our casting scoop, Roberts’s character is the representative of Scotland’s greatest enemy and “is brilliant and ruthless” in his efforts to destroy main character Mary’s (Adelaide Kane) place in the royal court.

Meanwhile, EW has also learned Katie Boland, who earned her stripes as a regular on Canadian sci-fi show The Zack Files, has also scored a recurring role as Clarissa, “a strange and almost feral young woman who hides in the shadows” as her face severely disfigured. “Clarissa’s past is a tantalizing puzzle that will reach out to change the lives around her in ways no one suspects,” teases casting intel.

Reign premieres on the CW Oct. 10, following the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries.
