‘The Magicians’ Season 3 Trailer Shows an Imaginative and Dangerous Overseas Adventure

‘The Magicians’ Season 3 Trailer Shows an Imaginative and Dangerous Overseas Adventure
Syfy’s “The Magicians” released its Season 3 trailer, and surprisingly enough there’s little to no magic involved. Instead, the quest to restore magic to the world is officially on after the new Kings and Queens of Fillory failed to protect the kingdom last season. Protagonists Quentin, Eliot, Alice, and Margo will fight to bring the magic back, and it looks like they’ll go to any length to do so.

The series is based on the trilogy of novels by Lev Grossman and stars Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, and Rick Worthy. For Season 3, the series has also added fan-favorite actress Felicia Day. The characters have to work together now more than ever before in order to find the seven keys to balance magic throughout the realm.

The Rookie: new Nathan Fillion TV series on the way

Joseph Baxter Oct 30, 2017

Nathan Fillion will soon be back at the former home of Castle, ABC, to star in a new dramedy series called The Rookie...

Nathan Fillion’s starring role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds on Fox’s ahead-of-its-time space/sci-fi/western series Firefly will likely be forever considered the elephant in the room that is his career. Yet, his 2009-2016 run – opposite Stana Katic – as the title star of ABC crime procedural Castle was, in actuality, the most prominent gig of his career. Now, a year and a half after that series came to a (controversially sloppy) close, Fillion has finalised a deal to return to ABC with a series called The Rookie.

ABC has emerged the winner in a competitive situation to acquire The Rookie, reports Deadline. With the network giving a straight-to-series order, Nathan Fillion will not only serve as star, but has also nabbed an executive producer slot.

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Is a Bingeworthy Horror Mindtrip That’s Helping Shape TV’s Brand New Rules

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Is a Bingeworthy Horror Mindtrip That’s Helping Shape TV’s Brand New Rules
Wednesday night’s installment of “Channel Zero: No-End House” was an episode-length dose of that universal feeling that comes with watching a piece of finely tuned horror: the tiny voice inside (or outside) that screams, “No! Don’t do it!” As with all on-screen tales of terror, the Syfy anthology series has mined plenty of moments like this in its second season, themed around the all-encompassing psychological consequences of an insidious haunted house. But while “The Damage” was a relative breather in the scope of what’s come before it, “No-End House” as a whole remains an ambitious series that’s building on the innovations of TV’s latest narrative wave.

As two friends who get sucked into the horror of No-End House, a literal end-of-the-road attraction with escalating horrors in each of its six rooms, Margot (Amy Forsyth) and Jules (Aisha Dee) have been fighting memories of their

‘Blood Drive’ Gets Canceled After One Season, but at Least Syfy Is Taking Chances on Crazy Ideas
It’s a sad day for fans of the ol’ ultraviolence, as Syfy’s “Blood Drive,” a gleefully disturbing mash-up of horror and sci-fi tropes, will not be returning for a second season. In a heartfelt letter to fans yesterday, creator James Roland described how much making the show meant to him — and how disappointed he was that it had been canceled.

“I got to make a show that I love so much I actually watch episodes as a fan (don’t tell anyone it makes me sound like a douchebag). The past two years are maybe the best of my life, creatively and personally. But none of that prepared me for how incredible it was seeing the show connect with you all on a deep level,” Roland wrote.

Set in a post-apocalyptic 1999, “Blood Drive” skewered both specific films (the show featured a cross-country road race similar to “Death Race 2000

It’s not hard to see how Ryan Murphy arrived at his premise for “Ahs” Season 7. To say that many Americans have been living out their own personal horror story isn’t an overstatement — not with border closings, hate speech, and potential treason all enabled by the White House — but the new season manages to undermine the left’s legitimate fears and amplify the right’s monstrous traits all in one frenzied mess of an allegory.

Meet an Emmy Nominee: Mindy Sterling on Double Nods for 'Con Man' and 'Secs and Execs'

It's one thing to get nominated for an Emmy, but it's another to get nominated twice and end up competing with yourself. This is the case for Mindy Sterling, who is nominated for best actress in a short form comedy or drama series for her roles in Con Man and Secs and Execs, respectively.

"I find that intriguing and fun and silly and I am delighted," the actress says about her nominations when she stopped by The Hollywood Reporter offices for a candid chat.

When asked about the two series, Sterling says they're both "interesting and different," calling the recognition...

A prolific actor and voiceover artist earning his first Emmy nomination this year for Con Man—a short-form comedy series of his own creation in which he also stars—Alan Tudyk has to be one of the most versatile performers in Hollywood today.
