The folks from The Walking Dead have not exactly been forthcoming with info as to what is in store for our not-so-merry band of survivors trapped in train car A when the zombie drama returns to AMC in October. But when Robert Kirkman called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about his new comic Outcast, he also spilled the beans on what we can expect in the season 5 premiere of TWD. So what should we expect? Answers! And lots of them, especially when it comes to the (possibly cannibal) captors of Terminus. “There’s a lot going on with Terminus,” says Kirkmam. “In our premiere episode of season 5 we’re going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, what’s going on with them. And by the end of that episode you’re going to have a much better understanding of what’s going on with them and why they’re so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies.” READ FULL STORY

Sarah Jessica Parker may be returning to the city—but this time, there could be less sex and more crime.
Sydney Kimmel Entertainment has acquired the rights to Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker’s non-fiction crime thriller Busted: A Tale of Corruption And Betrayal In The City of Brotherly Love, and Deadline reports that Sex and the City‘s Sarah Jessica Parker is expected to appear in one of the two main roles. SKE will produce the show with Anonymous Content, the producers of HBO’s True Detective.
Busted tells the story of two investigative journalists, Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker, whose investigative reporting helped bring to light one of the biggest police corruption scandals in Philadelphia’s history. Their reporting earned them a Pulitzer Prize.
“Wendy and Barbara have written an amazing true story, and we’re thrilled for it to be SKE’s first television project,” said SKE President of Production Carla Hacken and SKE President Jim Tauber in a statement. “Sarah Jessica Parker’s coming on board, along with David Frankel and Don Roos is simply a perfect combination that we couldn’t be happier about.”
David Frankel, the director of The Devil Wears Prada, is expected to direct and executive produce the pilot, and Don Roos, husband of Scandal‘s David Bucatinsky, will write it.
Since Sex and the City ended its groundbreaking run in 2004, Parker has guest-starred on FOX’s Glee and has appeared in several feature films. If picked up, this series would mark Parker’s first full-time return to television since the HBO comedy ended.
The Walking Dead is well into filming on season 5 of the apocalyptic zombie drama, so we figured it was time to check in and see how things were going down on the Georgia set. We dialed up our main man Norman Reedus to get a feel for the vibe down there, and Reedus is definitely pumped about what has transpired so far. “These scripts are the best scripts so far, and I’m really just excited to be back at it,” says the man who plays Daryl Dixon. “There are a lot of characters right now, so there are a lot of really different personalities on set. And it’s super interesting, everyone’s really bringing it. It’s going great. It’s so dynamic because it’s so fast-paced and so complicated. It’s great to be back.” READ FULL STORY
'The Bachelorette' episode 6: 'If you say you're gonna do better, then I guess I've gotta wait for you to do better'
You know what Tom Petty says, Andi: The waiting is the hardest part. But I think you’re going to be waiting a long time for the dude referenced above (no spoilers here—stay tuned for my full recap later) to stop being such a major d-bag. Then again, you seem to have a thing for major d-bags… otherwise why would Josh still be in the mix? In other news, I cannot believe it took this long for Team Bachelorette to work a lie-detector test into the show—brava, as they say in Italy. As for the suitor who admitted while strapped to a polygraph that he does not wash his hands after using the bathroom? I think that stomach bug you suffered on the same date was karma catching up with you. Am I right, fellow germaphobes?
True Blood‘s final season begins this Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO, and a warning to viewers: Prepare for major Blood-shed. “It’s the final season of True Blood, so gone are the days where we pull our punches,” teases showrunner Brian Buckner. “Heads are gonna roll.”
The premiere picks up immediately after the events of the season 6 finale, which found Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill under siege by a group of Hep-V-infected vamps. “Mayor Merlotte, Sheriff Bellefleur, and Jason Stackhouse are going to have their hands full, because not only do they have to fend off these H-vamps, but also they have to fend off this [Bon Temps] vigilante group,” he explains. In a deliberate nod to Hurricane Katrina, adds Buckner, Blood‘s tiny Louisiana town will be left on its own in the wake of the Hep-V outbreak, getting no support or protection from the government.

Picture this: Sookie Stackhouse is walking through the cemetery next to her house late at night when she sees Bill across the way. Suddenly, she can’t control herself anymore. But instead of running to him—much like she did in season 1—she bursts into song.
Sounds strange…but it could happen. EW has confirmed that True Blood composer Nathan Barr has pitched the idea for a True Blood musical. Barr told the Associated Press that the musical, which he’d like to be in workshop stages a year from now, would “try to return to the roots of the show.” It’s not clear yet whether that means cast members would return for the new project—although Stephen Moyer reportedly helped Barr put together samples for his pitch.
As far as HBO is concerned, this project is still in “very early discussions.”
'True Blood': Watch Sookie and Bill make a dramatic decision about their relationship -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Anna Paquin’s Sookie and Stephen Moyer’s Bill were not together at the end of True Blood‘s sixth season; the faerie waitress was dating Alcide (Joe Manganiello).

But based on this exclusive clip from episode 3 of the final season of Blood, little miss Stackhouse appears to have changed her mind. What does this mean for the future of Sookie and Bill’s relationship? Truebies will have to wait and see. Watch the tease below… READ FULL STORY
Fargo creator Noah Hawley promised a bloody season finale for his TV adaptation of the Coen brothers movie, and he wasn’t lying. But whose blood was spilled? [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched last night’s season finale of Fargo.] The final showdown between Lorne Malvo and Lester Nygaard ended up a bit of a draw: Nygaard bloodied Malvo’s leg with a bear trap while Malvo bloodied Nygaard’s nose by hurling an object at his face. In the end, they both died by other hands. No longer the Cowardly Lion, Gus Grimly found his courage and pumped Malvo full of lead while Nygaard later fell through the ice while running from authorities ready to arrest him after hearing the incriminating audio evidence on Malvo’s cassette. We spoke to Hawley to get his take on the finale, whether Lester is really dead, what happened to Oliver Platt’s Stavros, and what we might see if the show returns for season 2. READ FULL STORY
