'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 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

EW had your first look at Castle’s ’70s themed episode last week, but wouldn’t you rather see a clip?

'Scandal' star Tony Goldwyn's latest project 'The Divide': Watch the first trailer -- EXCLUSIVE

Scandal might be done for the season, but this summer, Tony Goldwyn will be back on TV in a different way.

In July, the Goldwyn-produced drama The Divide, which he worked on with Richard LaGravenese (Behind the Candelabra), will make its debut on the rebranded WEtv network, and Entertainment Weekly has your first look at the series.

“It’s absolutely insane, but intoxicating as well,” Goldwyn told EW back in late November of juggling writing and producing with his Scandal duties. “It’s incredibly busy doing both, but so incredibly creatively inspiring.” READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Creators reveal more secrets from the set (like that Delphine was originally a 'kooky Asian scientist')

How much of that science on Orphan Black is actually real? How long does it take to film a scene with multiple clones? What clones did Tatiana Maslany play in her audition? And which other OB cast member auditioned for the role of Sarah Manning? In part 2 of our joint conversation leading into the season 2 premiere on April 19, co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett chatted about all this and more from their on-set office in Toronto. (Check out part 1 right here.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How much do you guys look at what is happening in the world of science and how much do you incorporate that?

GRAEME MANSON: We want it to be as grounded as possible in real science, but we aren’t afraid to take that one step over the line into science fiction. And part of that is having these characters react realistically to these concepts, not just having the scientific reality. So it’s something that we try very hard to do. When you keep at it, it’s strange how you do rub up against reality.

JOHN FAWCETT: Things are moving so quickly from the medical and science point of view, so the realities of things are so much closer than you would think. READ FULL STORY

'Southland' one year later: EP and stars weigh in on the odds of a movie

One year ago today, viewers watched their final hour of TNT’s Southland. After five seasons of barely surviving (and once getting canceled by NBC), arguably one of the greatest cop shows of all time went out with a literal bang when fan favorite John Cooper was shot. It was the perfect cliffhanger to end the season, but not one that fans wanted to end the series. And the feeling was mutual among Southland‘s cast and crew.

Nearly a month later, when news spread that TNT canceled Southland, rumors began about a Southland movie, or at the very least, another episode to answer some burning questions: Is John Cooper alive? Can Ben Sherman be forgiven? Has Lydia really found happiness? And what is Sammy going to do next? But sadly, nothing ever came of the so-called “wrap-up” to the series. READ FULL STORY

'Parenthood' finale preview: Creator on Haddie's return, renewal chances

Parenthood closes out season 5 Thursday night with an episode that’s sure to be equal parts gut-punch and heartwarming — because, basically, both things are what you get with every episode of the show. In the preview for the finale that aired after last week’s penultimate episode, however, viewers learned there’s going to be at least one big surprise — an appearance from Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who has largely been absent from the main action while off at college and returns home with a female companion.

'Friday Night Lights' showrunner Jason Katims does a deep dive on the series finale

It’s not easy to stick the landing when it comes to series finales. Just ask fans of Dexter and How I Met Your Mother, who continue to debate the merits of those final hours. Which is why it is that much more remarkable when a show receives universal acclaim for its last chapter. Friday Night Lights is one of those shows. The saga of Eric and Tami Taylor (played to perfection by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton) and the Dillon Panthers and East Dillon Lions ended on Feb. 9, 2011 when DirecTV aired the final episode. Then it ended again when NBC aired the final episode on July 15, 2011. (In a unique arrangement, the final two seasons aired first on the satellite provider and then a few months later on the broadcast network.)

Friday Night Lights finished with Coach Taylor finally agreeing to put his own career ambitions aside to move to Philadelphia when wife Tami got a job offer there. But first East Dillon had a championship to win, with the final play of the final game playing out in slow motion before cutting away without showing us the final result (which was revealed subtly later with a shot of the championship banner). Matt asked Julie to marry him, Tim and Tyra shared a beer out on his land, and all the other characters had their moment to shine. For the latest in our series celebrating classic TV series finales, we asked Friday Night Lights showrunner Jason Katims to look back on how he and the writing staff crafted this perfect ending to a beloved TV show.

'Scandal': Shonda Rhimes reveals Jake was almost Fitz's VP in Jimmy Kimmel special -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Scandal fans are used to multiple jaw-droppers per episode, but if the exclusive clip below is any indication, the twists will continue in the upcoming Jimmy Kimmel special Behind the Scandalabra, airing after Thursday night’s finale.

The shocker revealed in the sneak peek? Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) was almost Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) running mate! READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst weighs in on the latest blindside

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: One of the things that has amazed me most about this season is how some people seem to be playing with little to no regard for how their actions may hurt them later with a possible jury vote. Tony was so worried about LJ that he blew up his alliance to get rid of him, but when this went down — not knowing then how it would play out later — did you think at the time this was a bad move because he (like Kass before him) now may have a jury filled with people angry at his betrayal should he make it that far?
JEFF PROBST: I think Tony is similar to Russell in many ways, one of which is I don’t really think he thinks too long about any of his moves. Not taking away from his game play, so far it’s working very well. He appears to be going off gut instinct, probably the same thing that he follows as a cop. I also think he has a pretty good read of people. But if he took a bit more time to evaluate some of his moves he might not make them. Is that a good thing? Hard to know at this point. The other factor is you have to get to the end in order to have a shot at winning. So playing “polite” and worrying about the jury too much can be a real hazard to your game. Before you know it you are on the jury. The goal is to 1) Get to the end 2) Get to the end with people you believe you can beat. So offending the jury is only relevant in regards to where you stack alongside the other finalist/s. But I think we can all agree that several of these players are playing to win.
