'Supernatural' finale: Jensen Ackles teases the brother moment that leaves Dean with a tear-stained shoulder

Supernatural‘s Winchester brothers have been through it all. Well, they’ve at least been through a lot. In the show’s previous eight season finales, we’ve watched Dean get sent to hell, Sam get sent to hell, Dean get sent to purgatory, Sam die, and believe it or not, this list keeps going. But this season, the finale is going to focus less on where the brothers are sent and more on what’s happening internally, specifically with dear old Dean.

In the penultimate episode, we got a glimpse at what the Mark of Cain was doing to Dean when he attacked Gadreel with the First Blade and was all but foaming at the mouth for more. So can things get worse for Dean? Jensen Ackles hopes not. “It’s been a tough season for me,” Ackles told us at the CW Upfronts. “I don’t usually have to play Dean this dark for this long. Usually it’s an episode, and then he comes back and is happy-go-lucky and a Dean we all love to hate or love to love, whatever side of the fence you’re on.” Obviously we’re on the love-to-love side of things.

“I’m hoping that season 10 might lighten him up a bit,” Ackles added. “[Season] 9 took a bit of a toll, but at the same time, that’s something I don’t expect. Because the show is every evolving and it constantly changes, the characters have to do the same, so even though it was a rough tough season, I still think it was a good season. We’ll see.”

However, we first have to make it through the season 9 finale, which, when asked to rank the finale on a scale of one to Hell, Ackles said: “It’s not so much the place that he’s in as opposed to the issue that’s surrounding him, and that I think is the shocking part.”

Speaking of shocking, Ackles guaranteed that the finale is one of those don’t-miss-the-final-60-seconds deals. Also, expect one of those Winchester brother-bonding moments that will “probably” make you cry, “considering [Jared's] tears were all over my shoulder,” Ackles said.

If anybody needs me, I’ll be buying a box of tissues.

The Supernatural finale airs Tuesday, May 20 at 9 p.m. on The CW.

The CW's new fall shows (all two of them!): A snap judgment (and a punt)

The CW apparently likes what The CW does, because TV’s YA fantasy aisle isn’t making radical changes to its fall lineup. Just two new shows and a scheduling shift, with The Originals moving to Mondays. But count me among those bummed that The Tomorrow People became a thing of the past too soon: I admired the perspective and the storytelling of the network’s take on super-powered outsiders, especially in its early going. That said, I like the looks of the superhero saga that aspires to fill the void… READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' cast discusses finale, reveals which character the writers originally wanted to be Merlyn's child

After last night’s heart-stopping, shocking, action-packed Arrow finale, we caught up with some of the show’s stars on the red carpet at the CW Upfront to talk about what just happened, what comes next, and all things Canary.

Stephen Amell on Olicity: “Think back to what Oliver said in the sixth episode, which is, ‘Because of what we do, I can’t be with someone I could really care about,’ and I think that that remains true. So I don’t necessarily think that it was a total bait-and-switch.”

Amell on how Oliver will react to losing Thea: “Based on the fact that Oliver has lost both his mother and his father, Thea’s going to be incredibly important to him, so if she’s not what he expects, that’s going to be really difficult for him to deal with.” READ FULL STORY

CW explains renewing 'Beauty' while axing 'Tomorrow People'

Couple things. First: The CW isn’t finished trying to spin off Supernatural.

After this year’s unsuccessful attempt to develop an extension of the long-running hit, The CW is going back to the drawing board. The CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters Thursday he’s looking to try again. The show’s producers and studio, Warner Bros., will seek a new concept to develop for next year’s pilot season. “We believe there is a really good brand in Supernatural,” he said. “We felt the Supernatural [spin-off pilot Bloodlines] didn’t quite get there … We know we want to develop once more for next season a Supernatural spinoff.”

Bloodlines debuted as part of the regular Supernatural season. While fans tuned in to watch, many felt the show was creatively lacking, with EW’s poll showing only a third of Supernatural fans wanting to see the spin-off continue. READ FULL STORY

The CW reveals fall schedule: 'Flash' teams with 'Supernatural'

The-Flash-teaser.jpg

The CW’s new fall schedule is here. You’ll notice it looks a lot like the current one. Most shows are staying where they are, with some exceptions to accommodate new titles and a couple returning favorites getting pushed to midseason.

The first big addition is The Flash, starring Grant Gustin as the fastest man alive, which will air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. The Arrow spin-off will lead into the 10th season of Supernatural. The Flash is taking the spot of The Originals, which is shifting to Monday nights (an evening where its repeats have already gotten some exposure). On Mondays, Originals will lead into new comedy series Jane the Virgin, starring Gina Rodriguez as woman “saving herself” for marriage who is accidentally artificially inseminated.

And that’s nearly it. Arrow and The 100 stay on Wednesdays; The Vampire Diaries and Reign hold on Thursdays; Whose Line Is It Anyway? and America’s Next Top Model continue on Fridays. The CW’s fall will launch in October, with exact dates to be announced at a later time. Which means returning shows Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast won’t be back until 2015. It also means two of The CW’s new drams — iZombie and The Messengers — also won’t debut until midseason. Full new show descriptions below. Trailers to come later today.

UPDATE: The CW says it wants another ‘Supernatural’ spin-off, defends axing ‘Tomorrow People’

'The Originals' finale postmortem: Julie Plec talks revenge, baby names, and a full Mikaelson family reunion

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of The Originals, stop reading now!

Last night, The Originals first season came to an end in a way no one could’ve expected: Hayley was a hybrid, just about all the town’s vamps were dead, Mikael was back, Rebekah was on the run with the baby, and what appeared to be Esther and Finn showed up in other people’s bodies. But don’t worry, if you haven’t finished digesting what all of that could mean for season 2, we chatted with Executive Producer Julie Plec about what exactly those twists will affect, how they decided to name the baby Hope, and everything about Elijah’s breakdown.

Check out our conversation below:

Stephen Amell previews the 'Arrow' finale: Oliver does 'the unthinkable;' plus, the ending nobody could predict

When we last left Starling City, it was being terrorized by Slade’s Mirakuru soldiers. Oliver and his team had injected Roy with the cure, Thea had fired a gun, and Amanda Waller had scheduled a drone strike to level the entire city. And that was just in Arrow‘s penultimate episode.

“We stretched [the finale] out this year. It was a long three episodes because essentially, our last three episodes — save for the last act of the season — take place over the course of one night,” Stephen Amell tells EW. “So the wardrobe department had it relatively easy because no one changed. But yeah we did absolutely save the best for last. This is our best episode of the season for sure.”

What exactly does Arrow‘s season 2 finale have in store for viewers? Check out our chat with Amell below:

'The Originals' finale: Daniel Gillies on the show's 'Darth Vader', and 'the beginning of the end for Elijah'

From the moment The Originals was pitched as a Vampire Diaries spin-off, it was talked about as the story of Klaus Mikaelson’s redemption, among other things, and what that would mean for this literally ancient family of vampires. And now, one season later, we’re only hours away from Klaus’ baby being born and what could be the start of a whole new Klaus. Then again, we could be hours away from Klaus going down his darkest road yet.

But one thing seems certain: Thanks to a romantic entanglement with Hayley, Klaus’ older brother Elijah will be just as affected by any outcome. And Daniel Gillies, the man behind Elijah, has spoken before about how this series is as much about Klaus’ redemption as it is about the undoing of Elijah. “What’s exciting about a character like Elijah is I think that I feel like he has an enormous threshold for this punishment,” Gillies said. “It’s partly to do with how I believe his psychological architecture is constructed. I think that he’s someone who carries an enormous amount of guilt and regret about his brother’s condition. He feels that he’s failed his brother, so subsequently, he’s this creature who follows his malevolent brother to all the corners of the earth in pursuit of this ideal that’s really as mercurial as sand between your fingers.” READ FULL STORY

'Reign': Toby Regbo on the love triangle, Lola's baby, and how King Henry reminds him of George Bush

Being a prince has its benefits, what with all the money, the whole living-in-a-castle thing, and the fact that everyone pretty much does whatever they’re told. But it also comes with a lot of responsibility, particularly when there’s a war brewing and your father, the king, has quite literally lost his mind. Welcome to Francis’ world.

In tonight’s Reign, Francis is returning from battle a victor, but what he’s greeted with isn’t exactly a welcome home party. “When he returns, King Henry’s still mental,” Toby Regbo said. “There’s a couple of public things that he does. Beforehand, what King Henry had done had been hidden behind closed doors, it had been shielded from the public eye, and now he does a couple of things that are so crazy that it starts to make Francis wonder what the best course of action is.” READ FULL STORY

'Arrow': Katie Cassidy on fighting back, Laurel and Oliver as 'soul mates;' plus, a game of 'Arrow or Canary'

Starling City is under attack in tonight’s episode of Arrow – and running is no longer an option.

With Slade’s Mirakuru army invading the entire city, everyone is forced to suit up — even Laurel, who can be seen holding a bow and arrow in tonight’s episode. “She does have it in her hands, but whether she knows how to use it or not, we’ll find out,” Katie Cassidy says with a laugh.

All jokes aside, it’s time for Team Arrow (and all the help they can get) to fight back. READ FULL STORY

'Tomorrow People' EP pitches major time jump for season 2; plus, an exclusive clip from tonight's finale

The Tomorrow People‘s first season has been a year full of our favorite T’s: telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, and twists. From people we never thought would have powers — Marla! — to those who lost them — John! — it’s safe to say that the end of the season looks nothing like the world we were introduced to months ago. And now, after last week’s big shocker, The Tomorrow People finale is shaping up to be an event all its own. What will Jedekiah do now that he has powers? Will Roger survive The Machine? And which characters will die?

We caught up with Executive Producer Phil Klemmer to talk about the finale and hear his pitch for season 2. (Yes, he has pitched it to the network!) Check it out below:
