Later this year, the Inhuman royal family will make its debut in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe in a new series about how they... crash land in Hawaii and struggle to blend in, or something. You can wait to watch that or you can watch this fantastic vintage cartoon about Queen Medusa instead.
If the shot of hundreds of bodies floating to the shore of a small fishing town wasn’t weird and creepy enough, what if they were the bodies of refugees fleeing from a terrible war in the future? That’s the premise behind ABC’s new mystery series, The Crossing, and it looks pretty damn intriguing so far.
Live action musicals on network TV are all the rage these days, and now ABC is entering the genre with its own weird mishmash version of The Little Mermaid. But this version will be a two-hour special event that somehow promises to meld scenes from the animated Disney classic with live musical performances by an…
Once Upon a Time has written the final page and closed the book. The Final Battle hinted at since the beginning of the show is over, and everyone has gotten their happy endings (including one person who totally didn’t deserve it). Then, why is the show coming back for another season?
Once Upon a Time is in a bit of a transition, and that’s putting it mildly. As the show gets ready to close out season six, with a just-announced seventh season on the way, we’ve learned that a bunch of the actors will not be coming back next year. Here’s everyone who’s still on board the OUAT train... and who’s…
Two popular genre shows with unclear futures just got some good news. A third did not.
I think it was pretty clear that Agents of SHIELD had left the door open for the spirit of vengeance, a.k.a. Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna), to return. The bigger question was if he would be back this season and, if he is back, how does he fit in with the current fight in the Framework?
When summer comes, it brings with it lazy days in the sun and kids free of school. It also brings a slew of TV shows, perfect for watching when it’s too hot to leave the air conditioning (which is most of the time). Here’s the io9 guide to everything our beloved nerdy genres are putting up this year.
Agents of SHIELD returned last night with an episode that takes place entirely within the Hydra-dominated simulation in the Framework. And even though everything we see is “fake,” it’s allowed the show to reflect our world in the way only dystopia can.
Since there are approximately eleventy billion time travel shows on TV right now, you could have made a bundle betting on which one would get canceled first. If you had Time After Time, ABC’s reimagining of a 1979 movie involving H.G Wells (yes) and Jack the Ripper (yes, again) traveling on Wells’ time machine (third…
After spending the week slowly eking out casting news for its Inhumans TV show, Marvel has finally announced the rest of the cast for the new ABC series. But it also buried the lede a bit, because right under that new cast list was the reveal that beloved Inhuman pooch Lockjaw will be in the series.
The star of last night’s episode of Agents of SHIELD wasn’t the action or the classic “robot decides mankind is too irrational to live” moment. It was the way the show portrayed the bone-deep paranoia that comes when anyone of your friends can be evil.
Say hello to the latest live action Marvel heroes: up-and-coming actors Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt have been cast in the title roles for Freeform’s long-in-gestation Cloak and Dagger series.
American gothic gets a lot of play on TV and film. There’s last year’s mystery drama American Gothic, the upcoming horror film American Gothic, and the 1995 Sam Raimi-produced bug nut crazy TV show American Gothic. Southern gothic, the much more fun and fantastical localized form of the gothic genre, gets much less…
I’m so glad Once Upon a Time is returning to Neverland, since that wasn’t a pointless slog of a plot cul-de-sac at all. And they’re now adding a character that has to be handled really carefully so that it doesn’t turn into a nightmare. Good luck, guys!
The midseason finale of Agents of SHIELD, “The Laws of Thermal Dynamics,” wrapped up most of the dangling plot threads from the beginning of the season—right up until it ended with a big ole twist that opened a huge can of worms.
It looks like the Inhumans movie is no more. Marvel has just announced that, seemingly instead of seeing the adventures of Black Bolt, Medusa, and the Inhuman royal family as a movie, they will now appear in their own TV show on ABC.
Jesus H. Christ, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and the Rock could team up and have the unstoppable power to produce every single piece of future entertainment.
Disney is once again shuffling its properties around so that comics, movies, theme parks, and television shows share source material. But this time, showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters (Agent Carter) are involved, so we’re more optimistic than before.
If you’re still smarting over the loss of Agent Carter, then news of how it was close to making a return isn’t likely to help you cheer up. But according to Hayley Atwell, for a good period of time, ABC was optimistic about the show existing alongside Atwell’s new role in legal drama Conviction.
