'Arrow' producer says that Olicity date is not a 'fake-out'

When Arrow fans first met Oliver Queen in season one, he was Laurel’s ex-boyfriend. You know, the one who had cheated on her when he took her sister, Sara, on a boat trip, only to have the boat sink and Sara die. Or, at least, that’s what viewers thought.

By the end of the first season, Ollie is a changed man, and he and Laurel rekindle their flame—for a time. But by that point, another girl had caught the audience’s eye. Enter Felicity Smoak, the witty IT girl who nearly drooled every time Oliver walked into a room. Their relationship seemed so impossible that fans started rooting for it.

But as time went on, romance didn’t seem so impossible anymore. To recap: By the penultimate episode of the second season, Oliver and Felicity have exchanged loving glances, had loaded conversations, and even hugged, but it wasn’t until the season-two finale that fans got something bigger. When Slade kidnapps Laurel in the season-two finale, Oliver hides Felicity at the Queen mansion, where he tells her that Slade is after the woman he loves and that Slade had taken the wrong woman when he took Laurel. He then tells the awestruck Felicity that he loves her. READ FULL STORY

The Black Death hits France in the first footage from 'Reign' season 2

REIGN-VIDEO.jpg

When we left Reign at the end of season 1, King Henry was dead, a plague was spreading, and Mary had just shut the gates on her beloved Francis as he rode off to be with Lola during the birth of their bastard child. Naturally, when we pick up in season 2, life inside the castle is as dramatic as ever (with an extra layer of intrigue, thanks to the large quantity of dead bodies).

Reign‘s Adelaide Kane, Toby Regbo, and Megan Follows stopped by our Comic-Con video hangout Thursday, where they teased new villains and “lots of death” for the upcoming season. But only those in attendance at the show’s Comic-Con panel got to see new footage from season 2… until now. READ FULL STORY

'Reign' cast teases 'lots of death,' new villains in season 2

REIGN-COMICON-VIDEO.jpg

When the cast of Reign hit their Comic-Con panel, we discovered a few things about what to expect from season 2, including more on the plague, future famine, and potential new love interests for Catherine. (Also: More sex!) But when stars Adelaide Kane, Toby Regbo, and Megan Follows stopped by EW‘s video hangout, we got further information on what will be happening when royal viewers return to France this fall.

Follows talked about season 2’s focus on the conflicting religious factions, while Kane teased new villains—or, more specifically, “new gentlemen.” Aside from the show, we also got the actors to talk about their own personal villains and the fact that Kane is a stealth nerd. READ FULL STORY

'24' at Comic Con: EP Jon Cassar says 'we're still talking about the movie'

Kiefer Sutherland joined executive producer Jon Cassar at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the latest installment of 24, subtitled Live Another Day, and his parting thoughts on playing Jack Bauer again. Here are the highlights:

- While some expected the panel would elicit news of another installment, neither Cassar or Sutherland discussed another terrible day for Jack Bauer.

- Cassar did, however, admit that a 24 movie is still a possibility. “We’re still talking about the movie,” Cassar told the crowd in Ballroom 20. “It’s still potentially out there.” READ FULL STORY

'Legend of Korra' is not canceled, will finish airing online

Legend of Korra fans can rest easy—the animated series has not been canceled.

Earlier today, the website NickAndMore reported that Nickelodeon had pulled the show from its schedule and that Korra‘s eighth episode, airing Friday, would be the last to be seen on television. While this is true, the creators have confirmed that the five remaining episodes of “Book Three” will be released online.

Korra is NOT cancelled,” the show’s team assured in a post on the series’ official Tumblr page. “The remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.”

And there’s even more good news: “There is most definitely a ‘Book 4,'” co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino said on his Facebook page. “All the pre-production is done and Studio Mir is hard at work on the animation.”

Legend of Korra‘s San Diego Comic-Con panel will take place Friday, where this big announcement will certainly be a topic of conversation.

Pornstache will not return for season 3 of 'Orange Is the New Black'

When Orange Is the New Black returns, it will be missing a little facial hair.

Pablo Schreiber, who plays Mendez—a.k.a. Pornstache—told the New York Post that he will not appear in the show’s third season. It’s not a huge surprise, considering that the last time we saw his character—spoiler!—he was being carted away to prison. But then again, this entire show takes place inside a prison, so there’s that.

Schreiber told the Post: “I’m not taking part in the third season. I’m a member of a show called The Brink that’s going to be on HBO. It’s a half-hour comedy with Jack Black and Tim Robbins and me [as] the three leads. I’m really excited about it.”

He went on to say that he was never a series regular on OITNB, which he is on The Brink, so really, “it’s a no-brainer,” he said. “It was a better move for me as an actor.”

That being said, Schreiber does still love OITNB, and specifically its creator, Jenji Kohan. “I feel so grateful to Orange. Jenji obviously means a ton to me. I respect her to no end. I think she writes the best dialogue on TV right now. While season three is out of the picture, beyond that is open.”

So it sounds like Pornstache could show up at a later date. As Schreiber put it, “I would go anywhere that [Kohan’s] working, and I know that our paths will cross again soon, whether it’s on Orange or on a future project.”

Schreiber later went on Twitter to calm some of the upset fans:

Reps for the show did not immediately respond for comment.

Norman Reedus of 'The Walking Dead' talks about disguising himself as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Norman Reedus is a Comic-Con favorite. But he loves the convention as much as the convention loves him. In fact, The Walking Dead star has been known to do some celebrity stalking himself. “I took a selfie with Anthony Bourdain and the lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!,” says Reedus of one of his favorite Comic-Con encounters. “I was like, this is the best moment ever!” But wait, did Bourdain and “lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!” (also known as DJ Lance Rock) even know who Reedus was? “The Yo Gabba Gabba! guy, he knew. Anthony Bourdain kind of looked at me like, what the hell are you doing right now? But I’m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain. If I didn’t have this job as Daryl Dixon, I would definitely want his job.”

Of course, there are scores upon scores of fans who would kill to get up close and personal with Reedus. But that can be a bit of a problem for when the star wants to go walk the convention floor. To try to an evade prying eyes, Reedus has employed a variety of costumes over the years so he can mingle undetected with even the most hardcore fans. He shared one such story about going incognito with a Walking Dead castmate. READ FULL STORY

'Once Upon a Time' is casting Prince Hans from 'Frozen'

Anna better look out, because a Frozen prince is headed to Once Upon a Time.

EW has confirmed that OUAT is in the process of casting for the role of Prince Hans, another name that Frozen fans will recognize. In the film, Hans was the charming prince who seemingly swept Anna off her feet. But let’s just say that he was later revealed to have some questionable motives. According to TVLine, which first reported the news, we will meet Hans in the third episode of season 4.

The addition of Hans brings the Frozen character count on OUAT to four, following the casting of Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff.

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

See Colton Haynes as Arsenal in 'Arrow' season 3

Last season on Arrow, Roy Harper was injected with Slade’s Mirakuru serum and had to deal with all of the rage that went with it. But now that Roy is Mirakuru-free, what will season three hold for the wearer of red hoodies? For one thing, another red hoodie.

As comic-book fans know, Roy Harper sometimes goes by another name: Arsenal. And not only can EW confirm that Roy will be joining Team Arrow as a fully fledged member in season three, but here’s an exclusive first look at Colton Haynes, who plays Roy, too—in full Arsenal attire (above).

The Arsenal suit will make its first appearance in the first episode of season three, which returns Oct. 8 on The CW.

Portia de Rossi joins season 4 of 'Scandal'

When last we saw Olivia Pope, she was flying off into the sunset (or maybe just flying off) with Jake by her side—leaving behind a broken Fitz, who’d just lost his son and realized some horrible things about his father. D.C. now rests in the hands of Olivia’s own father, who once again took over B-613. So what awaits the team when season four starts up? How about a new face?

EW has confirmed that Arrested Development star Portia de Rossi will join Scandal‘s fourth season for a multiple-episode arc. Ellen DeGeneres first announced the news on Twitter, bragging about her wife’s “top secret” storyline:

Lucy Lawless will guest star on 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

After Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s first season ended with the unforgettable (and very cryptic) image of Agent Coulson waking up in the middle of the night to scribble some mysterious symbols on the wall, fans have been dying to know what season two will hold. And as far as Coulson is concerned, the jury’s still out. However, there’s at least one new person in town: EW has confirmed that Lucy Lawless will guest star on the second season.

What her role is and how long she’ll stick around is, as most things are, classified. But based on her past as Xena, it’s likely she could give Agent May a run for her money on the battlefield.

TV Guide first reported the news.

Carrie Preston is returning to 'The Good Wife'

With True Blood coming to an end, Carrie Preston already has more work lined up. EW has confirmed that Preston will reprise her role as fan favorite Elsbeth Tascioni in the upcoming sixth season of The Good Wife. There’s no word yet on how long Elsbeth will be sticking around, but let’s just hope that this time, she stays away from any and all anti-Semitic bears (or not).

The Good Wife isn’t the only place Preston’s fans will be able to find her. As EW previously reported, the actress is also set to guest star in a season 2 episode of HBO’s Getting On. Preston will play Denya Thorp, a cancer patient staying at the Billy Barnes Extended Care Facility. Let’s just say she’s looking to get out of that place ASAP. READ FULL STORY

Joseph Fiennes to star in new series 'Nostradamus'

After his most recent stint on American Horror Story, Joseph Fiennes is returning to TV in a new drama from Carnival Films, Anonymous Content, and NBC Universal.

Nostradamus, which Fiennes will produce and star in, is an hour-long drama from author Michael Boccacino and executive producer Andrew Cosby. The show will follow the well-known clairvoyant on a quest for vengeance after his family is murdered. Nostradamus is described as “a charismatic and self-destructive man who is plagued with dangerous and disturbing visions.”

The show will be set in the universe of the French Royal Court, where “Nostradamus’ pleasure-seeking impulses and passionate thirst for revenge runs headlong into the treacherous epicentre of social and political life of Renaissance era Europe.”

There’s no word yet on when the new series will premiere.
