Let’s hope the docs have gotten some rest, because The Night Shift isn’t over yet. EW has confirmed that NBC’s mid-season medical drama has been picked up for a 14-episode second season. The Night Shift, which stars Eoin Macken and Jill Flint, follows a team of ER surgeons as they navigate the unpredictable workflow of saving lives at night.

The Night Shift‘s season-one finale is set to air Tuesday, July 15 at 10 p.m. on NBC.

Martin Freeman says 'Sherlock' is 'likely' to return in 2015

Finding a large enough gap in the respective calendars of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman so they can film more episodes of Sherlock has been no elementary task for the show’s producers over the past couple of years, given the pair’s increasingly full schedules. But Fargo and Hobbit star Freeman has told the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph it “looks pretty likely” the pair will reunite early next year to shoot a special Christmas episode of the beloved Conan Doyle adaptation. “I’m speaking off-message here [but] I think that might be for next Christmas,” said the actor, who plays Holmes’ detective partner and verbal punching bag, Dr. Watson, on the show. “That’s what I understand.”

Teaser for 'Boardwalk Empire's final season warns 'all empires must fall'

Last night, HBO released the first teaser trailer for Boardwalk Empire‘s upcoming fifth and final season, which is set to begin in September. While the 37-second trailer doesn’t give much away about the upcoming season, it does warn fans that “all empires must fall.” It also features several shots of Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) pensively looking out at things: the water, the Onyx, the distance. After a flurry of other short and nondescript clips from the upcoming season, the trailer settles down on Nucky saying, “The trick’s to stay alive long enough to cash out”—and then ends with the phrase “No one goes quietly.”

Check out the teaser trailer below.

 

 

Shawn Hatosy previews his 'perverted' character, Cam Gigandet's abs on CBS' 'Reckless'

Shawn Hatosy went from playing a cop on TNT’s Southland to playing a cop on CBS’ Reckless, but the two roles couldn’t be more different. For one thing, Southland‘s Sammy Bryant was generally a good guy. The same cannot be said for Reckless‘ Terry McCandless. “I play a cop who is pretty perverted,” Hatosy said. “He is a hateable character. I mean, his name is Terry. That’s pretty hateable right off the bat, you know? And then he’s just a jerk,” Hatosy joked.

But moving from the good guy role to the bad guy role wasn’t the only change for Hatosy. With Reckless set in Charleston, South Carolina, the new gig required him to relocate to the South, where things don’t quite work the same as in the City of Angels. “That’s one of the things that excites me as an actor, to be able to play somebody like Sammy in a world that is so just rooted in authenticity, to this world, which is Southern and the type of show that it is just completely, completely different,” he said.

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman promises 'a ton of answers' in the season 5 premiere

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 star in a drama from the producers of 'True Detective'

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': Norman Reedus promises a 'badass' season 5

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' EP Brian Buckner talks final season: 'Heads are gonna roll'

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.

'The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story' is coming to Lifetime

Too bad a bell can’t save them now.

Five years after Saved by the Bell‘s Dustin Diamond wrote Behind the Bell, his tell-all book that revealed secrets of the Bell set, EW has confirmed that Lifetime is airing The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. Although the project is completely separate from Diamond’s book, which included accusations of threesomes, drugs, and more, the new television movie will focus in on the same subject matter: The on-set life of the hit series that ran from 1989-1993. According to a press release, the film “delves into the experiences of six unknown young actors placed into the Hollywood spotlight, exposing the challenges of growing up under public scrutiny while trying to maintain the squeaky-clean image of their popular characters both on and off-screen.” READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' musical in 'early discussions' at HBO

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.”
