Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly stepping down

Fox’s programming chief is stepping down: Kevin Reilly, the network’s entertainment chairman and top prime-time decision maker for the past seven years, will leave his post by the end of June.

“21st Century Fox is a great company that has provided me with choice seats at the head table of pop culture over two very rewarding stints both at FBC and FX, and I am grateful to have benefited from the leadership of Peter Rice, Chase Carey and Rupert Murdoch,” Reilly said in a statement. “Peter and I have been discussing this transition for a while, and now with a robust new slate of programming for next season and strength in the FBC ranks, it felt like the timing was as right as it could be. I couldn’t be more thankful to my team — a group of creative, tireless and fun people whose fellowship I will miss.” READ FULL STORY

Bill Hader signs on for HBO comedy

Yes yes yes yes yes.

Great news for anyone still rewinding Stefon’s wedding: EW can confirm that former Saturday Night Live cast member Bill Hader has inked a development deal with HBO. He’ll be creating and starring in a new comedy for the pay cable net. Deadline first reported the news.

Additional details on the project are scarce for now, but even those who can’t tell Vinny Vedecci from Vince Blight should consider word of it exciting: Hader has an impressive comedy resume, including eight years on SNL, an Emmy for his worth on South Park (Hader served as a consultant writer on the long-running animated series from 2008-2009), guest appearances on comedies including The Mindy Project and Bob’s Burgers, and roles in a variety of upcoming films, including the Amy Schumer-penned, Judd Apatow-directed Trainwreck. Also, he’s got a knack for Star Wars impressions:

'Chicago P.D.' finale: Jesse Lee Soffer previews a Halstead-Charlie showdown, the ending you won't see coming

Chicago P.D. started its season with a bang when, by the end of episode one, it had already killed off one of the members of its Intelligence Unit. And when it comes to the finale, fans can expect yet another huge cliffhanger. Our advice? Don’t miss the final 60 seconds of the finale. “In our finale, it’s really just about our team and our unit,” Jesse Lee Soffer said. “And something so surprising happens, we didn’t even see it coming when we opened the script.”

But can the finale live up to the drama of the season’s crossover episode? “It will definitely compare,” Soffer promised. However, expect this hour to delve more into Lindsay’s backstory, and specifically, that shady Charlie character who’s been hanging around. “Lindsay gets into a lot of trouble. Charlie might be deeply involved. He might have information that can incriminate her,” Soffer teased.

So with his partner in a potentially incriminating situation, how will Halstead handle himself? “I think he ends up making some decisions about what kind of cop he is or what kind of cop he wants to be. He decides where his boundaries are a little bit, where his morals lie, and I think he realizes that he’s maybe not willing to do certain things but he’s capable of allowing things to happen for the sake of the greater good,” Soffer said. “It’s like you might have to kill one guy to save 100. Morally, how do you feel about that? And every character on the show is going to have a different feeling.” READ FULL STORY

AMC drama to become first show to ever premiere on Tumblr

Tumblr just became a lot more than the place to find the best GIFs.

In anticipation of its newest 10-episode series, Halt and Catch Fire, AMC is launching a two-week, full-episode sneak preview on Tumblr and AMC.com, making it the first-ever television show to premiere on Tumblr.

Halt and Catch Fire, created by Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers, follows the rise of the PC in the early 1980s, roughly one year after IBM.

Halt and Catch Fire is a fun ride through the early days of the PC era, a time when no one could imagine a portable computer weighing less than 15 pounds, let alone one that was a few ounces and doubled as a phone,” AMC President Charlie Collier said in a statement. “It’s a perfect show for summer and – given the subject matter – a good fit for Tumblr’s first TV series premiere and AMC’s first social media screening.” READ FULL STORY

Grant Gustin on why The Flash is a 'more willing' superhero than Arrow

From the moment fans watched Barry Allen get struck by a bolt of lightning on Arrow, they’ve been anxiously awaiting the first details on The Flash. But it wasn’t until Thursday that we got our first full look at the new CW series. And yes, it did feature a cameo from Stephen Amell’s Arrow.

But aside from Amell’s appearance in the pilot, what do we know about the series? We caught up with some of the show’s stars at the CW upfronts, where they previewed their characters, revealed a love triangle, and promised at least one shocking twist. Here’s what we found out: READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Michael Malarkey will be a series regular in season 6

After Thursday night’s Vampire Diaries finale, we knew Enzo was back from the dead, but will he be sticking around Mystic Falls? The short answer of it all is: Yes!

Julie Plec revealed that not only will Enzo be returning as his vampire bad-boy self, but Michael Malarkey will officially be a Vampire Diaries series regular in season 6. “We have not seen the last of the delicious Michael Malarkey,” Plec said. “He’s a wonderful addition to the team, and he will be officially a series regular next year.” READ FULL STORY

'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.

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:
