Klaus on 'The Originals' wants revenge in the 'most violent way possible'

On The Originals, Niklaus Mikaelson is not a fan of losing. Or maybe the more accurate statement is: Niklaus Mikaelson is a very big fan of revenge. The really, really bloody kind. And considering that Francesca was a central player in Klaus and Hayley having to give up baby Hope, you can bet that she will be target No. 1 when The Originals picks up for season two. But the thing is, when viewers do catch up with Klaus, he’s been imprisoned in his own home for the last four months.

“If you remember in the finale, there was a spell cast by Genevieve that bound Klaus’ strength to these rings that the wolves had, so every full moon the wolves they wouldn’t change, they would get more powerful and that power would come from Klaus so it would be zapped from him, so he’s been weakened by these rings,” Joseph Morgan said. “So, to a certain extent every month, [Klaus is] debilitated a little bit. So that’s been involved in the decision making.”

'Dallas' finale postmortem: Producer, star talk about losing a Ewing

In Dallas‘ big season 3 finale, fans were forced to say goodbye to one member of the Ewing family. Specifically, they were forced to watch as Nicolas blew up Christopher’s car … with Christopher inside. But with one Ewing gone, there’s another on the horizon, because John Ross also discovered he has a sister. Needless to say, it was a gasp-worthy end to a season full of twists, turns, sketchy cartel members, and more.

Unfortunately, Jesse Metcalfe wasn’t able to hop on the phone, but the star did issue this statement about his departure from the series: “In classic Dallas fashion the producers and writers needed a season ending shocker. After three great years, I was ready to move on and pursue other projects. It culminated in the perfect opportunity to surprise fans and deliver that shocking twist. I enjoyed my time on Dallas and am grateful for the opportunity to work with Warner Bros and TNT, and I wish the cast and crew all the very best!”

As for executive producer Cynthia Cidre, we’ve got an exclusive interview where she talks about losing Christopher and what comes next for those who survived this finale.

The 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' are 'true underdogs' in season 2

Being an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. these days is no easy feat. The organization has been driven underground in the wake of Hydra’s total infiltration, and the man in charge of rebuilding was brought back to life via a serum from a mysterious blue alien.

When Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its second season, newly installed Director Coulson will have an uphill battle to prove that his agents are actually the good guys—which is made all the more difficult with most of S.H.I.E.L.D. scattered to the wind, selling them out, or in their custody for being members of Hydra, like the double-crossing Ward.

Can Coulson return S.H.I.E.L.D. to its glory days? Who may stand in their way? And how will the team feel about Coulson being in charge? EW turned to executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen to get the scoop on season 2:

MGM is launching the United Artists Media Group (again)

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios is trying to make United Artists happen … again. Originally launched in 1919, the United Artists banner has been through its ups and downs. Its most recent revival came in 2006, thanks to Tom Cruise, Paula Wagner, and MGM. But after Wagner left in 2008, and Cruise’s stake disappeared a few years later, it is now fully owned by MGM. And now, the studio is planning a relaunch.

MGM announced in a press release that is has acquired a 55 percent interest in Roma Downey, Mark Burnett and Hearst Entertainment’s One Three Media and LightWorkers Media, which includes hit shows Survivor, The Voice, Shark Tank, and more. According to MGM, those entities will be consolidated into a “new media venture called United Artists Media Group.”

Although UAGM will include both scripted and non-scripted television shows, it will also feature motion pictures and digital content, with Burnett serving as CEO. Meanwhile, Downey will serve as president of Lightworkers Media, the faith and family division of UAMG.

“I am extremely pleased to be partnering with Mark, Roma and Steve in this incredible new venture that we believe will be accretive to MGM’s business,” MGM’s CEO Gary Barber said in a press release. “Mark and Roma are without a doubt the most successful and dominant players in unscripted television and faith-based content and we are excited to be distributing UAMG content worldwide. Together with Hearst Entertainment’s vast array of media assets and knowledge, MGM could not have wished for better partners to continue to grow the MGM business of creating premium content for distribution across multiple platforms. Additionally, we are extremely optimistic about the launch of an exciting new Over-The-Top (OTT) faith-based channel. Finally, I am truly honored to welcome Mark, Roma, Steve and their entire team into the MGM family.”

Speaking of the Over-The-Top channel, MGM is hoping it will “create a singular destination for audiences of faith worldwide and on every screen.” The channel will have original content, premium film and television catalog titles, user-created short-term faith-based videos, and more.

Hearst Corporation president and CEO Steven Swartz added: “MGM is a storied entertainment company and we are excited to expand our partnership with Gary and his team, as well as Mark and Roma, to create the next hit programming for a new audience of consumers.”

If Jamie Dornan had returned to 'Once Upon a Time': What would've been

Once Upon a Time nearly got 50 shades hotter last season.

During season three, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis revealed to reporters that they had a plan for Jamie Dornan to return as Sheriff Graham, a.k.a. the Huntsman, who died in season one after Regina crushed his heart. Ultimately, Dornan couldn’t make it work because the actor was busy shooting Fifty Shades of Grey. At the time, the Once bosses couldn’t even reveal their initial plans, and now it’s clear why: Sheriff Graham would’ve appeared in the season finale, which featured Emma and Hook accidentally traveling back in time to the Enchanted Forest that was.

'Dallas' boss on the finale: 'Some people survive, some people don't'

All of the promos for Dallas‘ season-three finale are teasing the same thing: One Ewing will die. So now, the question is: Who will it be? And how many other non-Ewings will also be included in the death count? Considering that when viewers left off, Bobby was in Mexico trying to save Ann and Emma, things aren’t looking good. With a highly dangerous cartel in the mix, there are no limits on tonight’s two-hour finale, which executive producer Cynthia Cidre promises will quite literally blow your mind.

EW chatted with Cidre about the finale. Here’s what you need to know going in.

There will be a definitive answer on Nicolas. All season, Nicolas has been toeing the line between being a good guy and being a bad guy. In the last episode, he came clean to Elena about all of his lies, but that’s not the end of his story. Cidre says the finale will provide the answer to the question, “Is he good or bad?” “You’re going to find out, for sure,” Cidre says. “You’re going to find out big time.” As for him and Elena? He still believes there’s hope. As Cidre put it, “He didn’t poke that diaphragm for nothing.”

The cartel will come to an end… sort of. Although the cartel storyline might extend into season four—which isn’t technically picked up, though Cidre is hopeful—some of the cartel guys will wrap up their stories. “You will definitely get an end,” Cidre said. “The characters you’ve come to know, whether it’s Luis or El Posalero, the guy with the braid, all of those people—you will have definition on them so that you know exactly where it all ends.”

Hour one is about a rescue mission. The first half of the finale will focus on saving Ann and Emma. “The basis of the first hour of the last two hours is the family making moves and trying to be heroic to rescue these two women,” Cidre said. However, a few people might have different ideas on just how to do that, and there’s nothing worse than one rescue mission messing up another.

Nobody will walk away unscathed. “There are so many people in actual physical jeopardy,” Cidre said. And leading into the finale: “The physical jeopardy continues; there’s some shooting; there are people hurt,” she continued. “Some people survive, some people don’t, and in the end, no one’s unscathed. Everybody’s taking a huge punch to the gut, and some recover better than others, and some are going to have to wait for season four to fully recover, to first express their anger and grief and hopefully grow from there and recover.”

The two-hour Dallas finale airs Monday night at 9 p.m. on TNT.

The cast of 'Sleepy Hollow' explains season 1 in 30 seconds

In Sleepy Hollow, anything is possible. Seriously—the series started when Ichabod Crane woke up from a 250-year sleep. Cut to the end of the season, and Abbie’s stuck in purgatory, Katrina’s been kidnapped by the Headless Horseman, and Ichabod’s son is the Horseman of War. Yeah, it’s a lot to take in.
