Lizzie Borden is coming back swinging (an ax).
Lifetime has just ordered an additional two episodes of The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, in which Christina Ricci reprises her role as the infamous real-life murder suspect, who was acquitted of the double homicide of her father and stepmother in 1892—which was depicted in last year’s original movie Lizzie Borden Took An Ax.
Though The Returned hews very close to the French original, Les Revenants, the producers behind A&E’s adaptation promise that the new series will differentiate itself.
The Returned tells the story of a small town that’s turned upside down when several presumed dead locals suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences.
“The starting point is similar,” executive producer Carlton Cuse told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s winter TV previews. “I think the same is true of The Office. Over time, our show becomes quite different. The French show became very genre and incident-heavy at the end. While we start at a similar place, the show is fairly distinctly different by the end of the first season.”

[SPOILER ALERT: This post discusses plot details of the Jan. 7 episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.]
It wasn’t such a Happy New Year for a lot of the freaks on American Horror Story. Jimmy (Evan Peters) discovered that Stanley (Denis O’Hare) had sold his hands. Elsa (Jessica) found out the sad fate of Ma Petite. But the fella who had the worst batch of luck was definitely Michael Chiklis’ Dell: the strongman was shot dead by Elsa after he confessed to Ma Petite’s murder. EW talked exclusively to Chiklis about the twist and whether he’d return to AHS for the fifth season.
In news surprising to no one since the producers behind The Flash and Arrow love Spartacus actors, Liam McIntyre has been tapped to play Mark Mardon, also known as the Weather Wizard, EW has confirmed.
