'Orphan Black': Creator spills season 2 intel on Felix and all the non-clone characters

There have been plenty of hints and teases about what’s to come for your favorite clones when Orphan Black returns for season 2 on April 19. And you will get more such teases below. But what about all those non-clone characters on the show? What of Felix? And Mrs. S? And Paul? And Delphine? And Art? WHAT OF THEM, DAMMIT?!? Well, we went straight to the source to find out. EW chatted with Orphan Black co-creator Graeme Manson to get the scoop on those folks as well as some other primo intel on season 2. Read on, Clone Club!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, I know you guys are really looking to expand the world more in season 2.
GRAEME MANSON: That was part of the mandate. Shooting earlier was part of our M.O. We wanted to shoot outside more, so we needed the warm weather to use some locations and get out of the urban feel — not lose it, but we like our different worlds. We had a lot of success portraying those in the first season so we felt confident that we could add more worlds. But come November, it’s like, no more going outside! READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany shares intel on the new clone

We spilled the beans about the brand new Orphan Black clone a few weeks back. We gave you all the details on poor Jennifer Fitzsimmons, including some of her video diaries that show the nasty progression of her illness. Now, star Tatiana Maslany talks about shooting those video diaries and playing what becomes her eighth different character on the show.

It’s strange because we shot her in pre-production,” says Maslany of Jennifer’s video journal entries. “So we shot her in like a day in pre-production, the first day of shooting basically before the crew was even there. So it was an intense day because we went through her whole illness, from health to sickness, in a succinct amount of time. Of course, to me she is her own person, but I talked with [creators] John and Graeme a lot about how she sheds light on Cosima, and what she woke up in Cosima, and what Cosima is able to see of herself in this girl. In that way, she’s a lot like Katja. She is a facilitator of change in someone else. “ READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Alanna Masterson takes us inside Terminus' 'creepy' train car

Sunday’s season 4 finale of The Walking Dead ended with 12 of our heroes locked inside train car A by the folks at Terminus. That would seem to be advantage: bad guys. But our survivors have something the apparent cannibals do not: Rick Grimes, who delivered a slightly more family friendly version of one of his classic lines from the comic book on which the AMC drama is based: “They’re screwing with the wrong people!” The season ended right there on that cliffhanger, and now we have more intel on exactly how shooting that final scene went down. Alanna Masterson, who plays Tara, called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to chat all about the big finale and her time so far on the show, and she took us inside the train car to tell us all about the filming of that big scene.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman on why you need to 'stay tuned for season 5'

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched the season finale of The Walking Dead.]

The Walking Dead took its first trip to Cliffhanger City with its season 4 finale, leaving Rick Grimes and most of the group reunited in the worst of all places — locked in a train car by the baddies of Terminus. But there is hope because at least the group has Rick back at his badass best. The finale used a flashback framework to show Rick’s transformation from a leader into a farmer after the fall of Woodbury, at the urging of Scott Wilson’s Hershel. That was juxtaposed against the things Rick had to do now to keep his family and friends safe — things like biting one marauder’s neck off and gutting another. Translation: the old Rick is finally back. And it is the Rick the group will need if they are to survive this encounter with their latest foes. We caught up with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman to get his thoughts on the finale, the evolution of Rick Grimes, and the fact that nobody major died, as well as get some insight into Terminus leader Gareth (that dude in the photo above) and what will happen when things pick back up in season 5. (Click through both pages to read the entire interview. Also make sure to read our finale interviews with showrunner Scott M. Gimple and star Andrew Lincoln.)

'The Walking Dead': Andrew Lincoln promises 'we will rain hell upon these Termites!'

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched the season finale of The Walking Dead.]

RICK GRIMES IS BACK!!! There will be no more of this put down the gun and pick up the garden hoe nonsense. The transformation of Rick back into a fearless leader was complete right around the time in last night’s season 4 Walking Dead finale when he bit marauder Joe in the neck and then gutted his buddy who was set to do harm to Carl. The survivors will need that newly focused badass considering their current predicament as the season ended with most of the group locked up in a train car by the baddies of Terminus. We spoke with Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln to get his thoughts on the evolution of Rick Grimes this season, filming those flashback scenes with Scott Wilson’s Hershel, that crazy cliffhanger ending, and why he can’t wait to get the battle started in season 5. (Also make sure to read our finale interviews with showrunner Scott M. Gimple and creator Robert Kirkman.)

'The Walking Dead': Showrunner Scott M. Gimple on that 'massive cliffhanger'

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched the season finale of The Walking Dead.]

The Walking Dead ended season 4 with a good news/bad news situation. The bad news: Most of our survivors had been captured and were being held in a train car by the folks at Terminus, who may have just exaggerated their hospitality by a weeeeeeee bit. The good news: They have their leader back. There will be no more shunning of violence by Rick Grimes, who got the party started by biting marauder Joe’s neck off and then gutting the thug who had Carl pinned down. Now he needs to get his group out their latest jam. We spoke with Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple to get his take on the finale, the return of Rick, whether the folks of Terminus may indeed be cannibals as speculated, the location of Carol, Tyreese, Judith, and Beth, and what may be in store in season 5. (Read though both pages for the entire interview. Also make sure to read our finale interviews with star Andrew Lincoln and creator Robert Kirkman.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start with the unique framing you gave this episode. You’ve done flashbacks before but never as much back-and-forth between present and past as you did here. How did you come upon the decision to go that route and really frame not just the episode but the entire season as this evolution of Rick Grimes?
SCOTT M. GIMPLE: Yeah, there you go. Actually, I think that’s it. It was really to show that evolution of Rick. If he had wound up in that train car at any earlier in the season or in his story he would not have been prepared for what he might need to do to get out. He would not be as confident as he is at the end. And this was all about that journey to that moment and really it was to show the contrast of where he was at the beginning of the season.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman says season finale will 'shock people'

They finally reached Terminus! Or at least some of them did. Glenn, Maggie, Tara, Bob, Sasha, Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita all arrived to a place with flowers blooming, crops growing, and a woman named Mary offering them a plate a food. So what now? Are the other groups (Rick, Carl, and Michonne…Tyreese and Carol…Daryl and the marauders…Beth) far behind? Whatever happens on Sunday’s season 4 Walking Dead finale, creator Robert Kirkman promises it will be intense. And he also says it will all come down to former group leader Rick Grimes.

'The Walking Dead': Gale Anne Hurd discusses that 'incredibly profound' episode and what's next

Is that last Walking Dead episode still sinking in? If so, that’s not such a surprise seeing as how the events of “The Grove” — in which Carol shot her “adopted” daughter Lizzie in the head after Lizzie stabbed and killed her sister Mika to prove that she would come back to life — were definitely hard to digest. (Get it? Digest? Zombies? Oh, never mind.) We already chatted with Carol herself, Melissa McBride, about the controversial episode, and also got the full lowdown from showrunner Scott M. Gimple, but I know what you’re thinking: What the heck does producer Gale Anne Hurd have to say about this whole thing? Well, that’s what I was thinking too so I caught up with Hurd to get her take on the episode as well as her thoughts on season 4 and fan reaction to the show, as well as a tease on what to expect next and an update as to that big Walking Dead spin-off. So read on…if you dare. READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: 'Orphan Black' creators promise new bad guys and new clones

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
