'The Walking Dead' director Greg Nicotero explains how they did that in the premiere

When it comes to The Walking Dead, Greg Nicotero does it all: He’s an executive producer, he’s the mastermind behind all the zombie makeup, he sometimes appears as a zombie himself, and he has emerged as a go-to director for the AMC hit. It was Nicotero who directed Sunday’s off-the-hook season premiere, so we spoke to him to find out how they filmed all the throat-slitting and fire-zombie-walking insanity. Plus, Nicotero shares one change he would have made on that big Carol and Rick reunion.

6 key pieces of intel about the 'Person of Interest' season 4 premiere

After escaping assassination by the hostile surveillance system Samaritan in the season 3 finale, Team Machine finds itself using guerrilla tactics to survive in a new world order when Person of Interest returns for its fourth season.

According to star Michael Emerson, “The whole team is in a state of confusion and distress. No place is safe.” Executive producer Greg Plageman confirms, “Whereas we once lived in a world where the Machine was watching, now there’s another kind of machine, and it’s quite hostile to our guys. The title of the premiere, ‘Panopticon,’ kind of sums up what are characters are dealing with this season.” Creator Jonathan Nolan adds that this season as a whole ponders a future when “the data stops working for us, and we start working for the data. We become the robots.”

Below, Nolan, Plageman, and Emerson offer six key insights as to how living off the grid (and “under a rock,” per the season four promo will change the dynamics for Team Machine from tonight premiere—and beyond. READ FULL STORY

New 'Homeland' season 4 teaser reveals juicy plot details

Showtime has released a new official trailer for Homeland‘s fourth season, premiering with a double episode on Oct. 5. The action-packed two-minute preview unveils plot details not included in the first two shorter and tamer Homeland teasers, released in July and August.

In the season-three finale, viewers learned that in the aftermath of Brody’s successful counterterrorism mission and subsequent public hanging, Carrie was appointed CIA Station Chief in Istanbul. (Check out EW‘s coverage for season-three recaps and more)The trailer kicks off six months later in Pakistan, and it makes several things clear.

Carrie and Saul are back to co-kicking ass. Carrie and Saul had a rocky relationship last season, to say the least; in the finale, Saul announces he’s leaving the CIA for the private sector. But what is Homeland without Mandy Patinkin? We see Carrie reluctantly accepting longtime friend Saul’s help—it looks like there’s a chance they’ll become the formidable team they once were.

There’s a lot of Corey Stoll. We get a closer look at the dubious role of newcomer Corey Stoll, the Golden Globe-nominated actor known for playing tortured politician Peter Russo on Netflix’s House of Cards. Stoll will play Sandy Bachman, the ambitious CIA Station Chief in Pakistan. Officially billed as a guest star, Stoll’s Homeland appearance looked to possibly be a limited engagement—but the new preview suggests viewers will be playing familiar season-long game of is-he-or-isn’t-he-a-double-agent with Bachman.

Carrie had Brody’s baby. The preview offers a few glimpses of a conspicuously red-haired little one, the baby of the now deceased Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) that Carrie was pregnant with last season. Carrie’s sister Maggie (Amy Hargreaves) accuses Carrie of finagling her way into a position overseas in order to avoid raising her daughter. Harsh, but not out of character for our embattled protagonist.

The CIA will see the s–t hit the fan again. We see Saul watching a viral YouTube video titled “American Missile Strike on Wedding”—devastating footage of a CIA-led mission, ostensibly a drone strike, that becomes a PR nightmare for the agency.

Quinn is back. But so is Senator Lockhart. Fan-favorite CIA agent Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) returns as Carrie’s coworker, confidante, and sometimes-savior. We see Quinn roughing up a baddie and protecting Carrie from an angry mob. And Tracy Letts is back to being the meddlesome jerk fans love to hate as good old Senator Lockhart.

Carrie is still the same rough-around-the-edges hero. True to form, Carrie is trying to get to the bottom of an epic, terrorism-fueled international mess. She offers to help protect a teenaged Pakistani boy whose family was kidnapped—before yelling at pretty much every single character in the preview.

'Orphan Black': The creators discuss the shocking return of [SPOILER]

WHAT THE HELL?!?!? That may have been your reaction upon watching Orphan Black’s season 2 premiere. So allow me to issue the standard SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s Orphan Black season premiere.

Helena is not dead. REPEAT: Helena is not dead. And it turns out that was the master plan all along. Orphan Black creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett explain why they insisted on lying through their teeth when they told anyone who asked that the Ukranian clone/clone killer was indeed a goner after being shot by her twin sister Sarah in last season’s finale. They also tell us about that intense diner shoot out, Alison’s foray into musical theater, and their big cameo!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me, how does it feel to be big fat stinking liars by going around telling everyone that Helena was dead?

JOHN FAWCETT: It feels great.

GRAEME MANSON: Evil master plan. Evil master plan the whole way. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany talks about that big premiere shocker


Orphan Black r
eturned for season 2 tonight with a big shocker, and if you have yet to watch then you may not want to read any further. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s season 2 premiere of Orphan Black.]

She’s baaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, Ukranian clone/clone killer Helena was thought to be dead after being shot by Sarah in last season’s finale and left to die in a pool of her own blood. But SURPRISE! She’s alive, and that was just one of the twists. Sarah impersonated Cosima to lay the smackdown on Rachel, and Alison got Aynsley’s part in the local community musical. (Who says watching your bestie choke via a garbage disposal doesn’t have its advantages?) We chatted with star Tatiana Maslany to get her thoughts on the big premiere episode. READ FULL STORY

UFC president Dana White on the new season of 'The Ultimate Fighter,' the rise of Ronda Rousey, and the celeb who makes him starstruck

Tonight at 10 on Fox Sports 1 marks the premiere of the 18th season of The Ultimate Fighter, the long-running reality competition series that puts a bunch of up-and-coming mixed martial artists in a house and lets them duke it out for a shot at UFC glory. For the first time, half of the contestants will be female, and both mixed-gender teams will be coached by women: UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and top contender (and personal Rousey rival) Miesha Tate. Rousey is a particularly important member of the current UFC roster, as she is seeing a tremendous amount of mainstream success since she debuted in the UFC earlier this year: She posed nude in ESPN The Magazine, appeared on the cover of Maxim, and will be showing up in the next sequels in both The Expendables and Fast and Furious franchises.

The premiere of season 18 is its first on the just-launched Fox Sports 1, which marks the third network for the show (it previously aired on SpikeTV and then FX). Through 18 seasons, the one consistent thread has been that of Dana White, the UFC president who also acts as the show’s host, cheerleader, and verbal smackdown-layer. As noted in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, the rise of UFC has a lot to do with White’s skills as a promoter and a talker. EW caught up with White for an extended conversation about the current season of The Ultimate Fighter, the UFC’s upcoming 20th anniversary (a documentary on its trip will air in November), and who his favorite celebrity fight fan is.

'Catfish': Nev Schulman says season 2 features first 'success stories'

Not since Googling became a thing has a noun-turned-verb entered the public lexicon as prominently as Catfishing. And Nev Schulman couldn’t be happier about it. It’s made his job, chronicled on MTV’s docuseries Catfish, a little easier.

“There’s a whole new element in how we interact with these people because they’ve seen the show,” he says of those who contact him for help investigating possible instances of catfishing. “They know the things they can and should be doing to help themselves, and yet, for any number of reasons, they still need our assistance. So we have an ability now to sort of cut through the fat and really attack the issues without having to explain what we’re doing. It gives us a chance to dig deeper and hit a little harder when it comes to the questions we’re asking and the emotions we’re dealing with.”

'Copper': Watch the first three minutes of the season 2 premiere here! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

When BBC America’s Copper wrapped up its first season last October, we left Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) in a pretty dark place. The Civil War-era New York police detective had just suffered betrayals from his wife and his best friend, and the last scene of the finale had Corcoran turning to drugs to deal with his despair.

Copper‘s sophomore season picks up four months later, a jump that new showrunner Thomas Kelly decided to take “to get a fresh start but not move ahead too far out so we wouldn’t have any drastic changes to explain.” The struggles Copper‘s characters faced at the end of season 1 are still present in their lives, but they’re also moving on — season 2 has a theme of reconstruction, both for individual characters and for America, as the Civil War comes to an end.

Below is an exclusive clip from the first few minutes of Copper‘s season 2 premiere, which starts off with a rare serene moment outside the city, but fair warning: It gets bloody and violent pretty quickly.
