Here's why you should watch the 'Flash' premiere... even if you did already

There are a number of people who have already seen Tuesday’s series premiere of The Flash. Months before its debut, a leaked copy hit the internet, and then Warner Bros. screened it at Comic-Con. But there’s a very good reason why viewers should still tune in Tuesday night.

'The Originals' star Joseph Morgan hints at more flashbacks, bigger fights

When The Originals catches up with the Mikaelsons at the beginning of its second season, it’s safe to say that losing Hope hasn’t gotten any easier over the past four months. And not surprisingly, Klaus is ready for revenge. But with two parents and a new brother in town, Francesca isn’t going to be Klaus’ only problem this season.

We caught up with Joseph Morgan, who plays Klaus on the show, to talk about season two, Klaus’ parents, and the ultimate daddy showdown.

'Play It Again, Dick' is for those who love 'Veronica Mars' stars, not 'Veronica Mars'

How meta do you like your entertainment? That’s a good question to ask yourself going into Play It Again, Dick, the new web series from the Veronica Mars team airing on CW Seed. If you are fine with a show being as self-referential as they come, then Play It Again, Dick is for you. If you grow weary of fan service, you should perhaps refrain.

Elijah's on the hunt in the first photos from 'The Originals' season 2

When we left New Orleans, things were not looking good for the Original family. Not only was Hope gone, but Mikael back was, along with Esther and a mystery son. Plus, Francesca seemed to think she was “running things.” But if season 1 taught us anything, it’s that Klaus isn’t one to lose a fight and not kill somebody because of it.

In the first photos from the season 2 premiere, we get a glimpse at Ester and Finn(?) roaming the town, as well as a look at new hybrid Hayley, who’s hopefully getting a little guidance from the Original Hybrid. As for Elijah, he appears to be ridding a werewolf of his moonlight ring, but only after ridding him of his pulse. And as the season 2 trailer showed us, Marcel is keeping busy by building a new vampire army, which apparently means fighting in the rain.

Tyler has serious anger issues in first photos from 'Vampire Diaries' season 6

Here’s what we know about The Vampire Diaries‘ sixth season: Elena really misses Damon, Jeremy really misses Bonnie, every supernatural being really misses Mystic Falls, and Stefan has a new bed buddy. Oh, and this might be Alaric’s new love interest.

But in the first photos from the season 6 premiere, titled “Fresh Starts and Second Chances,” the focus is on the boys of Mystic Falls, namely Alaric, who has found himself as both a vampire and a college professor. His first order of business? Stopping Tyler from reliving his mistakes of season 1. Only, instead of using his werewolf temper to beat up Jeremy at a bonfire, Tyler seems to get into a fight with a blonde at a football tailgate. And instead of Stefan stepping in to save the day, Alaric gets to be the responsible one to keep Tyler from re-triggering the curse. Oh, how times have changed.

'Veronica Mars' makes fun of 'The Newsroom' in 'Play It Again, Dick' trailer (Updated)

play-it-again-dick.jpg

Last month HBO released a very dramatic teaser for the final season of The Newsroom, in which a copier printed script pages, giving viewers a taste of the dialogue to come. Dialogue that’s doesn’t feature lines like “Everyone else is outside at the clothing-optional pool” and “Aaaaaarrrrgggghhh!!!” Those, however, appear in the latest trailer for Veronica Mars spinoff, Play It Again, Dick, which expertly spoofs HBO’s Sorkin seriousness.

The Hollywood in-joke nature of the trailer fits given the meta approach of Play It Again, Dick, which doesn’t exactly take fans back to Neptune, California. Instead, the series follows Ryan Hansen, playing himself, making a Veronica Mars spinoff about his character, Dick Casablancas. Other Veronica Mars alums like Kristen Bell (Veronica, of course) and Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls) will play versions of themselves and their Veronica Mars characters. The show will consist of eight episodes, which vary in length between seven and 10 minutes. CW Seed will premiere the first two on September 16, and there will be a new one each following week.

Update: Due to a scheduling change, the second episode will air the week following the premiere of the first. This post has also been edited to reflect the correct spelling of Kristen Bell’s name. EW regrets the error.

Demon Dean enjoys strip clubs and karaoke in new 'Supernatural' promo

In the world of Supernatural, there’s very little the Winchester brothers haven’t done. After nine seasons, they’ve died for each other (multiple times); they’ve been possessed; they’ve been to Hell and back; and they’ve even stopped the apocalypse. But if there’s one thing they’re not familiar with, it’s being the demon that needs hunting.

As fans know, season nine ended when Dean died, only to wake up as a demon (thanks to the Mark of Cain). So what now? EW has an exclusive look at the first promo for season 10, which focuses on Sam’s hunt for his older brother, Crowley’s idea of the “perfect Hell,” and Demon Dean enjoying his new “disease.” There’s drinking, dancing, killing, and, of course, porn. From the looks of it, Sam is going to have his hands full with “The Year of the Deanmon.”

'Reign' star Adelaide Kane on racy season 2: 'Mary is shagging everyone'

Being a princess isn’t all regal ceremony and ruffled dresses. (Well, sometimes it is, but we’ll get to that later.) Just ask Aussie actress Adelaide Kane, who’s begun filming the second season of her royal role as Mary, Queen of Scots in The CW series Reign. With the promise of plague, famine, a royal coronation, baby mama drama, sex, death, and more sex, it seems like the royally salacious drama is prepared to set hearts racing—and that’s just in the first few episodes. Here, Kane shares details of what’s in store when the second season of the hit drama premieres Oct. 2 at 9 p.m.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When we next see you on the show, you’re the Queen of France.
ADELAIDE KANE: Yes.

 What does this mean for you as the character—will we be seeing a new side of Mary? How has your character evolved?
Well she’s been the queen of Scotland for a very long time, but she’s been more of a figurehead. She hasn’t had a particularly active role in ruling her country. So I think Mary will step up to the plate and actually be an active ruler, as opposed to just a figurehead or someone who is purely used as a political tool. So we’ll see her become a little more proactive, a little more politically involved as well as see her struggle to step into her parent’s shoes.

And will you take after Mary de Guise, as played by Amy Brenneman, or will we see you more as a Queen Catherine-type?
Well, I don’t know. They’re both pretty manipulative because their power came from the men they married as opposed to their own blood line. I don’t think Mary needs to manipulate, she’s not that type of person, but certainly with rule and politics does come a certain, I don’t know, you need to have a certain guile about you to rule in that world. And I think she and Francis definitely have a different vision for the monarchy. She wants a more honest, straightforward, decent type of ruler, as opposed to mad King Henry or the forever scheming Catherine. I think there’s want to be more honorable but we’ll see if they can do that. I don’t know if they can. Catholics, and there’s o much ill will floating around, and there were struggles diplomatically, so in trying to be egalitarian rulers they’ve got a lot to come up against with the more traditional values that they have. There’s also a lot of change in this time.

There’s no feast – all famine right, as the season begins?
Well they’re royals, so there’s a couple of feasts.

You seem to be implying that there might not be too much of a ‘happily ever after’ with your marriage to Francis.
[Laughs]

What can you tell us about where’s that’s going?
Well I said last year, everyone was so excited because they got married and it was supposed to be a happy marriage. But the story just begins, because from history we know that they never had children. And back then there would have been a lot of tension without babies. And remember, Lola had a child. Which I think they’ve already spoiled ahead for this season, so I think I’m allowed to say that. So having that reminder about, when they themselves are trying to conceive will be a source of tension between the two of them. Heirs are so important, male heirs in particular. And then I think just them trying to handle the nobles like every time the monarchy shifts a generation, everyone tries to see if they can gain control over the new king. There’s a mad scramble and they’ve had whatever it is, 20 years of Henry’s rule and they know how he operates. There’s a security in that. But Francis is a brand-new ruler, and everyone has to figure out whether they can manipulate him or not. But Mary is part of that as well. Can she be manipulated or manipulate Francis? I think its going to be very interesting to see how the power shifts around them.

But before you can really get into the politics, there will be a party. There will be a coronation, right?
Yeah girl!

Can you tell me about what you’ll wear?
I wear a really big dress. My dress is magnificent. It was custom built by our wizard in the wardrobe department. They made this dress. It’s gorgeous. I have a lot of photos on my phone I’m saving for Instagram. I have a particularly hysterical one of me playing with my dress that was taken when I wasn’t looking. It’s a real big dress [Laughs].

I swear you have the best job on TV just because of the clothes.
Arguably, yes. Being on TV is kind of the best job in the world.

If you were to compare the coronation dress to the wedding dress, how would you describe it or put it forth?
It’s a little sexier, a little more adult. It’s bigger. It’s a bigger dress [laughs]. A lot more hardware. The wedding dress for Mary was very much a princess dress but the coronation dress is more adult, kind of a more powerful statement dress. It really says something. It has a lot of impact. It’s a beautiful dress.

It seems like a statement about how your character has changed from one season to the next.
Exactly. Exactly. There’s definitely more power dressing going on in the second season.

Are you discounting at all the fact that you may or may not have a baby this season? It didn’t happen in history but this isn’t a documentary series so …
This is very true. I don’t know if there will be a literal baby. That would be pushing it too much but you know, pregnancies, I don’t know.

Yeah. Could you have a miscarriage?
Maybe. That would be freakin’ heartbreaking. I would be destroyed by that. It would be so sad. But no, I think that they won’t pull any punches when it comes to that since we have in a lot of other ways. We’ll have to wait to see since we’re only a couple of episodes in. It hasn’t been definitively teased either way. But yeah, I have my own speculation about what they’re going to do about it but [showrunner] Laurie McCarthy is very closed-mouthed about it all.

What do you think they’ll do?
I think there will probably be a pregnancy. I think that the possibility of not having a baby will get very stressful. Maybe she’ll go crazy. Maybe she’ll go a little baby crazy. There could be a hysterical pregnancy. That’d be awesome.

Like a phantom pregnancy.
Right. Wouldn’t it be hilarious if everyone went crazy in the castle—can you imagine? A phantom pregnancy! That would be a pretty interesting avenue to explore. I think that would be terrifying for everyone, especially given how Henry went crazy. Maybe I should start writing new premises for the show.

 You totally should.
Here’s your new lines! Laurie would just be like, ‘no, Adelaide, stop.’

You never know. Many successful actress in Hollywood have a side hustle— maybe yours can be screenwriting.
Oh, god. That bar is just too high for me.

Like a lot of fans, I’m really going to miss King Henry. Do you think he might come back? Whether as a ghost or in flashbacks—something?
I don’t know. We’ve touched on supernatural elements in our show but they’ve never, ever come to fruition. Think about it. The only supernatural elements that have been given any credence or plausibility has been supported at all in the show are Nostradamus’ visions. That’s the only thing we’ve supported as maybe being true. But other supernatural incidences have been basically discounted.

Right.
So, I don’t know. We might introduce ghosts. We film in a creepy old castle so it seems rather appropriate. We have Catherine de Medici, who is incredibly superstitious. I think it’ll be interesting to see if we do real ghosts or fake hauntings or what. Or do we do both and kind of red herring it, like ‘there’s no such thing as ghosts on our show’ or ‘are there?’ We do that a lot.

If you can’t do ghosts, please convince Laurie to bring Henry back in flashbacks because he was amazing.
Flashbacks? He was rather delicious as a mad, tyrant, charming king.

And I have to add, that we were promised a lot of sex this season. But if Henry is not around, who will be doing it?
Um, about that. I have gotten naked three times already and we’ve barely started. So I would say yes, there will be a lot more sex. Definitely going to be happening.

So is Mary having the most sex?
Mary is shagging everyone in the castle. It seems strange to say but Mary is shagging every kitchen maid in sight. I joke. But there’s definitely lots with Lola, and Grier and I have actually filmed like two sex scenes already. So yeah.

I can’t wait.
More, you know…mushiness.

That’s one way to think about it. Speaking of mush, I loved Amy Brenneman as your mom. Do you think there’s any possibility she’ll come back as your mom at all this season?
I have no idea. There’s always the possibility but she has her own show …but I’d love for her to come back if she’s up for it. It’d be super, super awesome but I doubt it.

Will there be any other guest stars this season?
Oh we have so many guest stars. We have a couple of gentleman who’ve just joined us. Craig Parker and Sean Teale, who are playing an evil villain named Narcisse and Count Condé, respectively. We have some gentleman who are eye candy, which should be lovely. And I just read on Entertainment Weekly that we have another young woman joining us as well.

I wrote that. Way to give me my own spoilers. 
Right, giving you your own spoilers [laughs]. 

This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity. 

First look: Is this Alaric's new 'Vampire Diaries' love interest?

When it comes to Alaric Saltzman, a few things are well-known. He hasn’t had the best luck with relationships. He’s had even worse luck with magical rings. Oh, and he’s back from the dead and getting ready to experience being an Original vampire (minus all the hunter qualities) for the first time.

So when we catch up with The Vampire Diaries, where will Alaric be? Well, he won’t be in Mystic Falls, considering that entering the town would enact a spell that would kill him. Instead, it sounds like Alaric gets back into the teaching game and compels himself a job as a professor. And knowing Alaric, it won’t be long before he finds a lady love—something that executive producer Julie Plec teased at Comic-Con.

EW has an exclusive look at Hit the Floor‘s Jodi Lyn O’Keefe in the season-six premiere. O’Keefe is playing Jo, a doctor at the university hospital who’s been described as “tough.” Could this be Alaric’s next girlfriend? Hey, if Elena’s pre-med, she’ll probably approve.

Stefan finds a new bed buddy in latest 'Vampire Diaries' promo

Losing someone you love is hard. Losing two people you love is even more difficult. And in the newest promo for season 6 of The Vampire Diaries, we get a deeper look into how everyone is dealing with the deaths of Bonnie and Damon.

For starters, Stefan seems to have found a new love interest, and Jeremy has chosen to cope with the help of Damon’s old friend, alcohol. As for Elena? Well, she’s feeding on people and doing everything she can to see Damon. And in a pretty amazing throwback to the season 3 finale, she thanks him for giving her a love that “consumed” her, passion, adventure, and even a little danger.

The biggest red flag of the promo: If there aren’t vampires in Mystic Falls anymore, then who/what is killing the campers?
