First image from 'Reign' season 2 stars Mary, Francis, and Mary's legs

So far, the biggest teases fans have gotten for season two of Reign have involved a plague, famine, sex, a baby, more sex, and lots of death. Oh, and a new princess joining the fun. But now, EW has an exclusive first look at season two with a promo shot of the king and queen of France.

Although Mary and Francis didn’t leave things on good terms—she locked him out of the castle as he rode into a plague-infected land to visit his baby mama—there’s no reason to believe their marriage is in jeopardy just yet. For one thing, the love triangle is a thing of the past. At Comic-Con, Adelaide Kane was asked about the relationship between Mary and Bash—who’s now married to her best friend Kenna—to which she simply said, “They’ll always have a special relationship. I just don’t think they’ll bang.”

And based on the first footage from season two, it seems the biggest thing coming between Mary and Francis will likely be his newborn child and her struggle to produce an heir of her own.

Then again, that “struggle” is what Kane has said will lead to more nudity for Mary, and in the above promo shot, we get a glimpse at the, er, relaxed attitude of the queen. Although the couple still manages to look royal, there’s a definite undertone to the photo, with Mary showing a bit more skin than usual. Clearly, these two won’t be all business this season.

Or rather, Klaus finds a potential ally in Marcel. After all, you can’t kill both your parents without a little bit of help, right?

Greg Finley joins 'The Flash' as Girder

Based on the number of villains coming to the show, it’s looking like Barry Allen is going to be very busy during the first season of The Flash.

In the series’ latest casting news, EW has confirmed that Greg Finley—whom CW viewers might recognize from Star-Crossed—has joined the show as Tony Woodward, a.k.a. Girder. Finley is set to appear in episodes 6 and 7 as Woodward, whose character description explains that, thanks to the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion, he can now “transform his skin into living metal.”

Julie Plec says a 'TVD,' 'Originals' crossover is in the works

Considering that The Originals is a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries and exists in the same universe, it doesn’t seem all that hard for the shows to cross over every once in a while. But as executive producer Julie Plec mentioned at Comic-Con, it’s harder than fans might think. Not only do the stories have to come together in a natural way, but the logistics of getting an actor (or two) from one show to another isn’t the simplest task.

That being said, the two shows did manage a total of two crossovers last season—one when Tyler came to The Originals and another when Klaus and Rebekah made an appearance in Mystic Falls during TVD‘s 100th hour. And the good news is that it looks like the stories are going to converge again this year.

Plec revealed that, as of right now, there is a crossover in the works. “It looks like we are going to be able to do a crossover in the first half of the season, and I can’t tell you what or who or when because it hasn’t been shot yet, but things are looking good,” she said. The one detail she would share? Despite his current status as an Original vampire, Alaric will not be the focus of this crossover—though Plec is not totally against the idea of that happening in the future. “I just love the idea of Matt Davis playing in the pool with Joe [Joseph Morgan] and Daniel [Gillies],” Plec said when pitched the idea.

But a crossover isn’t the only thing fans (and Plec herself) have to look forward to this year. After more than five years as the showrunner of The Vampire Diaries, Plec is going to make her directorial debut in season 6. Why the long wait? Well, probably because she never wanted to do it before. “I was convinced I would be dreadful at it,” Plec said. “I directed a school musical in college and it was being so terrible at directing that made me realize I was such a good producer and that put me on my first career path. [Laughs] Then I had to remind myself that I also thought I would absolutely positively never be a writer because I thought I was a terrible writer for years,” she admitted. “I just was convinced, ‘Oh, I’m good producer; I’m a s—ty writer.’ And then I actually started writing and I thought, ‘Oh, actually—I’m pretty good at this, at least intermittently good at this.'”

And thankfully, Plec’s years of producing have left her feeling prepared and excited for the task. “The beauty of television, much more so than feature films, is when you are the showrunner, you make all those decisions anyway,” she said. “You choose the casting and the hair and the makeup, and you oversee the art direction, and you sit and you edit each episode, and you talk through every single scene with the actual director in terms of what you want for tone and character journeys and emotion and sometimes even lenses and shots and how you want the camera to move. You can be that specific when you’re collaborating with the director. So we all collectively, the producers and some of the actors and I, talked about it a lot and everybody seemed really excited to see what I could do behind the camera. So I’m gonna dive in and see how it goes.”

Although it is subject to change, Plec is currently slotted to direct episode 15 of The Vampire Diaries.

The Vampire Diaries returns for its sixth season on Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m., ET with The Originals returning for its second season on Monday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET, both on The CW.

'Devious Maids' star Colin Woodell joins 'The Originals'

With Hayley turning into a hybrid in the season one finale, the werewolves of New Orleans are down a key player. Correction: They were down a key player.

EW has confirmed that Devious Maids star Colin Woodell will recur in The Originals second season as Aiden, who’s described as “a badass lieutenant in the reigning New Orleans werewolf pack, loyal to his people first but willing to align with witches if it allows him the power he needs to take down vampires. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect his family, even if that means forming dangerous alliances.” TVLine first reported the news.

When EW spoke with Originals executive producer Julie Plec after the season one finale, she mentioned that the wolves might be in need of a new leader come season two. “There’s a lot of wolves that Klaus was aligned with that were all looking to Hayley as their queen, but now she’s no longer a werewolf, she’s a hybrid, and there’s no love lost there for that species,” Plec said. “So they’re going to be kind of stranded without a leader, and we’re going to have to see who steps in and takes that role of alpha. Will it be Jackson? Will it be Oliver? Will Hayley be able to win her way back? What’s going to solidify these wolves in one group, or now that they’ve won the Quarter, are they going to start in-fighting as well?”

How Aiden fits in will be revealed when he first appears in episode four.

The Originals returns Monday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen return to 'Veronica Mars' with a webseries

It’s a melding of two great worlds: the characters (and cast of) Veronica Mars meet the L.A. “reality” of Party Down. At least, that’s how Rob Thomas, who created both shows, has described his next project.

EW has confirmed that Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas will lead a return to the world of Veronica Mars in a new web series for CWSeed, the network’s digital-only network. BuzzFeed first reported the news.

Titled Play It Again, Dick, the show will feature Ryan Hansen (who appeared in both Veronica Mars and Party Down) trying to rekindle his career by writing a spinoff of the CW cult series and later Kickstarter movie. Hansen will star as himself and reprise his role as resident Neptune bro Dick Casablancas. Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) and Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls) will also appear as fictionalized versions of themselves and as their characters .

'America's Next Top Model' goes dark in spooky group swimsuit shot

A lost work of Salvador Dalí? A post-apocalyptic swimwear campaign, paid for by Capitol Couture? A promotional image for an ill-fated reality show called Sexy Mass Grave Island?

Nope—the photo above is an exclusive group shot from The CW’s America’s Next Top Model, which begins its 21st (!) cycle later this month. The photo itself was inspired by a fashion shoot that ANTM creator/executive producer/host/dictator for life Tyra Banks found on model Tiara Young‘s Instagram: “I am obsessed with Instagram and came across this picture of this model/models intertwined with each other,” she tells EW via email. “I thought the sensuality and calmness was extra interesting and immediately thought of my male & female models being intertwined like this. It just popped into my head.”
