Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars, stop reading now!

Last night’s season 5 premiere of Pretty Little Liars revealed another member of the “A” team before, moments later, killing off that person. More specifically, Aria killed Shana in self-defense. For those of you who watched it live, odds are you’re still wrapping your head around everything that happened — not to mention CeCe’s farewell — but we’ve got a little something that might help.

We chatted with PLL showrunner Marlene King about the decision to kill Shana, what exactly Ezra whispered, and what comes next with Mona’s Army. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars' cast, EPs reveal Mrs. D is officially [spoiler], Hanna's alcohol problem, more Rosewood funerals

It’s almost time to re-enter Rosewood, a place where cyberbullies reign, high schoolers come back from the dead, and more than one member of the DiLaurentis family has been dragged to a grave. And after the Pretty Little Liars season 4 finale left us with a wounded Ezra and a potentially dead Mrs. D, season 5 will pick up right where we left off: On the way to the hospital and full of questions. So what now?

First things first, EW paid a visit to the PLL set to try and get some of those questions answered before the emotional trauma of another season begins. Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY

MTV renews faux-lesbian comedy 'Faking It' for second season

MTV will fake it again.

The network has given the greenlight to a second season of its newest scripted comedy for the high school set, Faking It, which follows two best friends who pretend to be lesbians in order to become popular. As we learned during the first season (the finale airs June 10), one of the fakers isn’t exactly pretending anymore.

The freshman comedy was MTV’s highest-rated new series launch this year, pulling in 1.4 million viewers each week and retaining almost 90 percent of its 10 p.m. lead-in from the fourth season of Awkward.

Faking It stars Katie Stevens, Rita Volk, Gregg Sulkin, Michael Willett, and Bailey Buntain, and is executive produced by Carter Covington (Greek, 10 Things I Hate About You).

Robert Downey Jr. is producing a 1980s rehab drama for Showtime

Robert Downey Jr. is coming to the small screen. Well, in a way.

EW has confirmed that Showtime is developing a drama from Gary Lennon, Robert Downey Jr., and Susan Downey’s Team Downey, along with Sony Pictures TV. The untitled drama, written by Lennon, is set in 1983 and follows a rehab community in Venice Beach, where drugs and alcohol aren’t exactly hard to come by. (Art imitates life!)

Amanda Burrell joins Lennon and the Downeys as an executive producer, with Chris Mammolito on board as a co-executive producer.

'The Strain': Guillermo del Toro on the creation of his FX series' big bad vampire -- EXCLUSIVE

Getting the flu is a major bummer. But it’s waaay preferable to a contagious virus that turns you into a vampire, the all-too-creepy premise behind FX’s July horror epic The Strain. Based on the book trilogy by director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) and author Chuck Hogan, and executive-produced by Lost’s ­Carlton Cuse, the 13-episode series focuses on an epidemiologist (House of Cards’ Corey Stoll) who must battle a parasitic sickness threatening to transform New Yorkers into plasma-loving monsters.

The main carrier of the ­disease? The Master, one of the oldest vampires in existence. The Strain’s brutal behemoth is so complicated to operate that it takes two men (actor Robert Maillet and dancer Roberto Campanella) plus several visual-effects artists to bring him to life on screen. Del Toro shares this exclusive early sketch of the villain and talks about creating the ultimate bloodsucker. READ FULL STORY

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.

'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
