Cult action comedy Chuck ended its five-season NBC run on Jan. 27, 2012.

The Neighbors is staging a Full House reunion!

EW has confirmed that Candace Cameron Bure and Scott Weinger — who played teenage lovebirds DJ and Steve, respectively, on the ’90s ABC sitcom — are set to reunite on The Neighbors, playing new visitors to the alien neighborhood. The episode in which they appear is set to air as the season finale.

The Neighbors is currently in its second season, airing Fridays on ABC. The next new episode airs Feb. 28.

This news comes only a few weeks after Full House‘s John Stamos, Bob Saget, and Dave Coulier reunited in an Oikos Super Bowl commercial.

'Pretty Little Liars' boss teases black-and-white episode (Paily kiss! Spencer-Ali confrontation!), and what's left for season 4

This week, Pretty Little Liars is heading back in time in the show’s first ever black-and-white episode. After Spencer pops one too many pills, viewers journey inside of her head, into a world of classic film noir. Suddenly, all color is gone, all the drama is heightened, and Ezra is more evil than ever.

We spoke with PLL executive producer Joseph Dougherty, who wrote and directed the episode, to find out what viewers can expect from an old-timey Rosewood, as well as what’s in store for season 4′s final episodes. Here’s what we took away from the chat:


'Outlander' scoop: Author Diana Gabaldon to cameo

Fans of the hugely popular Outlander book series should keep their eyes peeled for author Diana Gabaldon when the much-anticipated adaptation bows on Starz later this year: She’ll make a cameo!

The Arizona-based author was in Scotland last week filming the episode. She wrote at length about her appearance on her Facebook page. “Now, originally, they’d asked if I’d like to be an extra, and I said sure, that might be fun, and the fans could play ‘Where’s Waldo?’ when the show is released. But some weeks later, they … the production team … emailed me to say that they’d been thinking about this. If I were an extra, I’d have to stand essentially in the same place for three days … as you can’t be pulling extras out of carefully composed crowd scenes and screwing up the painstaking configurations that the director and director of photography … have worked out. As the producer put it, ‘The novelty wears off quickly.

“They’d therefore come up with a better suggestion; Matt Roberts, the scriptwriter for this particular episode … would write a tiny scenelet for me. Just a couple of lines of dialogue. They could then film that pretty quickly on its own, and I’d then be released.”

Gabaldon is not allowed to reveal too much about her cameo, but she did write this much: “The lady in question is at the Gathering, and the scenelet in question takes place in one of the galleries over the Great Hall. I’m not supposed to post set photos or describe the sets in great detail—but hey, you’ve read the book. You know what it looks like.”

The series is expected to closely mirror the book, which follows Claire (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse in the 1940s who’s vacationing with her husband (Tobias Menzies) in Scotland. Claire falls through a time-travel portal to the 18th century, where she falls in love with a young warrior (Sam Heughan). Ron Moore (Helix, Battlestar Gallactica) is executive producing.

'Arrow' producers open up about THAT twist, tease Suicide Squad

Arrow producers promised that they’d put their own twist on Nyssa al Ghul, and boy, did they deliver. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the latest episode of Arrow!)

In the episode that aired Wednesday night, which saw Sarah (Caity Lotz) return to Starling City to check on spiraling Laurel (Katie Cassidy), not only did we get to see the first TV version of Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter, but the show revealed that in their world, Sarah and Nyssa (Katrina Law) were in a romantic relationship. And as the producers revealed in a Q&A with reporters, it was a secret they worked very hard to protect.

'Arrow' producers preview Nyssa al Ghul's 'surprising' debut

Nyssa al Ghul is coming to Starling City in Wednesday night’s Arrow, and things are going to get complicated, to say the least.

The character — played by Spartacus alum Katrina Law — arrives in town to track down Sarah, who had returned from her self-imposed exile to check on her sister (Katie Cassidy). Or, as executive producer Andrew Kreisberg puts it, the League of Assassins had “sent their first round of minions to come for Sarah and that didn’t go too well for them, so they’re bringing out the big guns.”

“And the way Nyssa comes into the story is in a far more provocative and surprising way than the last round that came in [episode] 2.05,” he teases.

'The Tomorrow People': Peyton List previews The Founder's daughter, Luca's breakout, and more

After last week’s camping trip didn’t exactly go as planned, Stephen discovered his mother’s boyfriend wasn’t the paranormal he was looking for. Instead, he should’ve been looking at his own brother, Luca, who is now “breaking out.” So with a pair of sibling paranormals, the introduction of The Founder’s daughter, and a Cara-John clash, what does this week hold for The Tomorrow People?

We caught up with Peyton List to talk about the show’s newest character, what John and Stephen’s friendship will mean for Cara, and more:

'Originals' boss talks [spoiler]'s death and next episode: 'It's something we've never done before'

If there’s anything fans of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have learned in their time following the shows, it’s that dead doesn’t always mean goodbye.

'NCIS' preview: EP teases Parsa conclusion, season finale plans

After a brief break, NCIS returns on Tuesday night with the conclusion of an arc that has gotten very personal to the gang.

In the last string of episodes, we saw terrorist Benham Parsa fingered as the culprit who bombed a government-sponsored black-tie gala that left DOD agent (and NCIS friend) Delilah Fielding paralyzed and many others dead. And though the last new episode ended on a note that indicated NCIS had hit a wall in their investigation, in Tuesday’s episode, teases exec producer Gary Glasberg, we’ll see them band together for one final push to bring Parsa to justice. “It all comes to a head,” he says of the episode, which will reveal a connection between newbie Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Parsa. “I’m really pleased with that episode. It’s action-packed, exciting, and fun.”

Also done is McGee’s (Sean Murray) struggles with guilt over the circumstances that led to Delilah’s injuries from the bombing, says Glasberg. “I think he’ll kind of come to terms with what it is, and it’s all about being supportive for her and helping her figure out what’s next,” he teases. Ultimately, he adds, it’s about getting the superstar defense expert “back to where she’s DOD Delilah.” But it won’t be easy — as in real life — and that’s why they wanted to tackle it, says Glasberg. “We’re an 8 o’clock television show, but I’d like to be able to tackle some of the complexities of what it means for people who are dating and who really care about each other to suddenly have something like that change in their relationship,” he says.

Stan Lee previews his 'Agents of SHIELD' guest stint

So far, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has seen its fair share of notable Marvel guest stars — Avengers actors Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders have both made appearances in the series, and Thor warrior Jaimie Alexander is set to appear later this month. But Tuesday’s episode includes a cameo that may be its most important one yet: comic legend Stan Lee. Known for his brief but memorable appearances throughout multiple Marvel movies, the 91-year-old brings that honor to the ABC series in a role that he teases may be more than just a cameo. EW chatted with the Marvel icon about his guest appearance, creating the S.H.I.E.L.D. universe, and keeping busy at 91 (he might as well be a superhero in his own right!) READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' spin-off details emerge

How I Met Your Dad is starting to take shape. In fact, producers are already on the hunt for the New Gang.

EW has confirmed that casting is officially in progress for the host of characters that will populate the show, which will revolve around a woman named Sally (Girl Ted), a “vibrant, messy and unpredictable” woman described as a “female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life.” The real twist for this main character, though? She’s got a husband! But we’re guessing ISN’T the “dad” to which the title refers, as the character description for Sally says she’s “thinking of calling it quits” with said husband (named Gavin).

As for her circle of friends, here’s the scoop, via TVLine, who first reported the news: READ FULL STORY
