Katie Cassidy Returning to ‘Arrow’ for Good as Black Siren
The “Arrow” alum will be back as a series regular in Season 6, playing Black Siren. She will first appear in the final two episodes of the CW show in the current fifth season.
An original cast member of “Arrow,” Cassidy portrayed Laurel Lance/Black Canary for the first four seasons, before being killed off in the midst of Season 4.

‘American Horror Story’: Sarah Paulson Wants to Reprise Her ‘Coven’ Character
PaleyFest La wrapped its week of TV panels with FX’s “American Horror Story: Roanoke.”
Executive producer Brad Falchuk revisited his original interest in the concept of “Roanoke” during a Q&A on Sunday at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
“Even before the show, we were always fascinated by it. It’s one of the few American mysteries so it was always in the back of our head. It was nice to have something that had just a kernel of truth in it and we could fill in whatever we want,” said Falchuk.
“Every season we’ve always tried to do something different. We really wanted to be as scary as possible. I wanted to beat the hell out of the cast in a different way,” he added.
Sarah Paulson, who played three characters during “Roanoke,” including reprising “Asylum’s” Lana Winters, compared this season to her previous ones on show.

Writers Guild Negotiations: If Talk Shows Go Dark, Donald Trump Could Be The Biggest Winner in a Strike
It’s a growing concern that probably hasn’t gone unnoticed by the hard-working staffs of TV’s late-night shows: A Writers Guild strike would silence their shows, right when they’re providing some of the sharpest analysis and critiques of the Donald Trump administration.
The threat of a strike inched closer to reality Friday, as talks between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Pictures & Television Producers stalled, and members of the WGA’s negotiating committee sent a letter to members asking for a strike authorization vote.

Like the last work stoppage in 2007, a strike would likely hit the business hard — particularly in an era of so much new media disruption. But for liberal-leaning Hollywood, here’s another unfortunate truth: Should a strike be called, the earliest — and perhaps only — winner in all of this could be Trump. »
