'Roswell' reunites at ATX Television Festival

Earth to Roswell fans: The ATX Television Festival is staging a 15-year anniversary reunion with stars Shiri Appleby, Nick Wechsler, Brendan Fehr, and Roswell creator Jason Katims this June.

The sci-fi show first premiered back in October 1999 on The WB and ran for three seasons (the last on airing on the UPN) before getting canceled due to poor ratings in 2002. The people who did watch the show really watched it, though — fans even sent The WB loads of Tabasco sauce (what the show’s aliens liked to snack on) in an attempt to convince the network to keep the show on during its first season.


'Frasier' reunion: The cast talks fond memories and Eddie -- VIDEO


If everything had gone Kelsey Grammer’s way, Frasier might have ended up nothing more than an idea.

“My initial feelings were that Frasier should die with Cheers,” Grammer told ABC’s Chris Connelly on the set of EW’s latest Reunions issue. Of course, Grammer eventually changed his mind — paving the way for 11 seasons of intellectually-laced farce on Frasier.

Before signing on for the show, though, Grammer made a few requests: specifically, that his character not be married, and that his onscreen child would make only occasional appearances. “Of course,” adds Grammer, “I forgot to mention I didn’t want any animals on the show.”

Jack Russell Terrier-lovers will forever thank him for making that mistake.

Watch below to see Grammer and his TV family — David Hyde Pierce and John Mahoney — reunite in Chicago as the show’s female leads, Peri Gilpin and  Jane Leeves, meet in Los Angeles. Though they’re in separate locations, they share a love for the TV series that brought them together — all mixed up like tossed salads and scrambled eggs. READ FULL STORY

The stars of 'Hart to Hart' recall their first meeting, as told to Adam Scott and Amy Poehler -- VIDEO

Long before Robert Wagner donned his finest silk suit and Stefanie Powers teased her hair up to astronomical heights, the duo at the center of the ‘80s mystery series Hart to Hart met under very different circumstances.

EW’s special Hart to Hart correspondents Adam Scott and Amy Poehler sat down with Wagner and Powers, who shared the story of their first meeting — which came long before they starred in the 1979-1984 series (plus eight TV movies!) — while on the set of EW’s fourth annual Reunions Issue. Scott and Poehler — who recreated the show’s opening credits for Scott’s Adult Swim special The Greatest Event in Television History, which airs its third episode on November 7 — got the serendipitous scoop from the Hart to Hart pair, and even managed to score an invite to dinner.

'The Waltons' reunite: Good morning, John-Boy! -- VIDEO

Over three decades after the Walton family — Olivia, John, John-Boy, Mary Ellen, Jason, Ben, Erin, Jim-Bob, and Elizabeth — said their last “goodnights,” the whole gang (that’s Michael Learned, Ralph Waite, Richard Thomas, Judy Norton Taylor, Jon Walmsley, Eric Scott, Mary Elizabeth McDonough, David W. Harper, and Kami Cotler) joined forces once more for EW’s latest Reunions issue.

The world has clearly changed a lot since this rural Virginia clan left the airwaves in 1981. Can any current TV show compare to The Waltons‘ enormous heart? Well, maybe one. When Good Morning America‘s Cam Mathison posed that same question to the reunited cast, Thomas had a prompt answer for him: “True Blood.”


Amy Poehler and Adam Scott host EW's 'Hart to Hart' reunion -- VIDEO


ABC’s frothy amateur detective drama Hart to Hart had plenty of fans during its five-season run — but nobody loves it more than Parks and Recreation stars Adam Scott and Amy Poehler. Earlier this year, these superfans painstakingly recreated Hart‘s cheese-tastic opening credits sequence for Scott’s second Greatest Event in Television History special.

So naturally, when EW decided to reunite Hart stars Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers, we figured that Poehler and Scott would be the perfect hosts for the event.

Watch Wagner and Powers reminisce about their killer chemistry and styling — Powers did her own hair! — in the video below, courtesy of Good Morning America. Want even more Hart? Head over to Facebook, where fans of EW’s page can unlock an exclusive video of Poehler and Scott seeing if Wagner and Powers remember some of the series’ craziest plotlines — from a dog kennel filled with cocaine to Jonathan and Jennifer being trapped in a “weather chamber.”


'Mystic Pizza' cast reunion: Julia Roberts was like 'a bomb waiting to go off' -- VIDEO

“I have a feeling that Mystic Pizza may someday become known for the movie stars it showcased back before they became stars,” Roger Ebert wrote upon the film’s release in 1988. He wasn’t kidding: Though this smart coming-of-age comedy has plenty of merits, it’s best known today for introducing the world to a feisty Georgia native with a megawatt smile named Julia Roberts.

“Miss Roberts here — you just knew when she met Julia she was gonna be a huge star,” the Oscar winner’s Pizza costar Vincent D’Onofrio told EW’s Jess Cagle when the movie’s cast reunited for the magazine’s annual Reunions Issue. (Roberts’ response? A skeptical look and a gentle “Shut up!”) “There was no doubt in our minds, any of us,” he continued. “She was like a bomb waiting to go off. A big bomb!”


'Friends' reunion not in the works, says NBC

It started as “The One with the Reunion” and turned quickly into “The One with a Whole New Season,” but sadly, rumors that fans of the hit sitcom Friends will be seeing the much-loved gang back on their old orange couch at Central Perk sometime soon are decidedly untrue.

NBC has confirmed to EW that a Friends reunion is not in the works.

The buzz started months ago after rumors of a Thanksgiving 2014 reunion special began to make the social media rounds but really heated up late last week when a major Latin America news outlet reported that NBC had confirmed a new full-season order of the show. Fans, who have been clamoring for a reunion ever since the sitcom ended its 10-season run on NBC in 2004, have been running with the rumors on both Facebook and Twitter ever since.

The network’s confirmation that a Friends reunion is not being planned comes just a day after show co-creator Marta Kauffman said the same to E! “I’m going to clear this up — it’s not happening,” Kauffman said on the red carpet of the Lifetime TV movie Call Me Crazy. “Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore.”

Cameras for ABC’s Good Morning America were also there, to chronicle the dive back into Melrose Place’s ever-ridiculous plots and best behind-the-scenes moments. The fun-and-frothy segment ran on GMA this morning, and you can watch it here:

'Larry Sanders' cast reunion: Garry Shandling on his groundbreaking comedy series -- VIDEO

When Garry Shandling got back together with fellow cast members from his groundbreaking HBO comedy series The Larry Sanders Show for EW’s Reunions issue (on stands now), it was more than just your typical reunion. “People always talk about the cast of a series being like family—that isn’t what this group is like,” says Shandling, who was reunited with co-stars Rip Torn, Jeffrey Tambor, Sarah Silverman, Penny Johnson Jerald, Wallace Langham, and Mary Lynn Rajskub. “We’re somehow even closer than that. This was more like a group therapy reunion.”

Then again, Larry Sanders went deeper than your typical TV comedy. When it debuted in 1992, the show — a warts-and-all look at a narcissistic late-night talk show host (played by Shandling) and the often petty, narcissistic people around him — was unlike any other comedy on television: more raw, more real, and waaaay more awkward. Twenty years later, the fingerprints of Larry Sanders can be seen all over the TV landscape, from The Office to Modern Family to 30 Rock to Parks and Recreation and beyond. Here, Shandling shares some thoughts about the show’s creation, its comedy style, and its creative influence. Then scroll down for behind-the-scenes video from EW’s Larry Sanders reunion photo shoot. Hey now! READ FULL STORY

'St. Elsewhere' cast reunion: 'It was a show that changed television'

“More people died there than in any hospital in the history of television.”

“Even the stars of the show had a tendency to die off and be killed. We couldn’t even save ourselves.”

The Boston hospital of St. Eligius didn’t have the best survival rate, for patients or actors. But the show, which ran for six seasons on NBC, redefined the hospital workplace drama and featured a vast stable of actors who delivered weekly doses of humor, pathos, and tension. Thirty years after its premiere, 12 of the actors who spent time in the halls of St. Elsewhere gathered for EW’s Reunion Issue and sat down with Good Morning America to discuss their memories of the groundbreaking show.
