DJ Qualls has had a lot of different acting jobs in his career, and right now he’s doing two science fiction shows at once: Z Nation and Man in the High Castle. In the press room during San Diego Comic-Con, Qualls told us about how he thought he was going to be fired and, more importantly, how brilliant being stupid…
With the delay of Inhumans and the upcoming Doctor Strange, Agents of SHIELD has a much wider world to work in. In a press roundtable after their Comic-Con panel, we talked to executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen about what those things meant for the future of the show.
CBS merely announced the name of the upcoming Star Trek TV series, and gave us the briefest glimpse of its titular ship, the Discovery. What could it possibly reveal about the show? Well, if you’re a Star Trek nerd like we are, it can tell you a lot—including when in the timeline the series might take place.
Lucifer will return to Fox on Sept. 19, and as the season one finale promised, the devil himself will be facing off with a mighty opponent this season: his mother. (We only get a glimpse in this season one recap/season two mini-preview, but she’s played by Tricia Helfer.)
The cast and crew of Ash vs Evil Dead did a great job talking up season two at the show’s Comic-Con panel and press room. But the ultimate proof that the show’s return is cause for celebration came with a preview screening of the first episode, which won’t air on Starz until Halloween. It’s fantastic.
In a packed panel during San Diego Comic-Con, the name of the new Star Trek series—which, in the grand tradition of Star Trek, is also the name of the ship—was revealed. In a press conference after the panel, executive producers Bryan Fuller and Heather Kadin gave just a few more details about the show.
Behold the U.S.S. Discovery, designation NCC-1031. What’s really cool is that it’s based on concept art the legendary Ralph McQuarrie did for the first Trek motion picture. See it in action in the show’s first teaser!
At the Orphan Black panel at Comic-Con on Friday, Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett said the most obvious and yet the most wonderful thing about the show’s fifth and final season: “The focus of season five, obviously, is we all want answers, goddammit.”
That was the pervasive sentiment of the American Gods panel at Comic-Con yesterday, summed up by Neil Gaiman himself: “As a general rule, if you loved it in the book, it is probably going to end up on your screen.”
I was skeptical about Powerless when I first heard about it, not the least of which because it sounded like a rip-off of Damage Control, created by the late, beloved Dwayne McDuffie. Plus, Katharine didn’t much seem to care for the pilot. But after watching the first episode of the upcoming NBC series myself, I was…
The seventh season of Game of Thrones won’t go into production for months so, on the show’s Hall H panel at Comic-Con, there wasn’t much in the way of news. There was, however, much to discuss about who all the panelists thought should end up on the Iron Throne.
We’ve had oodles of perfect casting announcements, we’ve had some delectable teaser images, and now, it’s finally here: our first look at Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, brought to life.
Given that Game of Thrones’ astounding sixth season only came to close a month or so ago, it seemed unlikely that the showrunners would have much to say at their Comic-Con panel—especially since we know production on season seven has been delayed. But they did have two little treats for fans.
When season seven of The Walking Dead premieres on October 23, we’re finally going to learn which character new villain Negan killed. It’s a secret the show is determined to keep until then, which made the panel at Comic-Con a little awkward.
Full disclosure: As io9's recapper of The Walking Dead, I don’t watch its sister series Fear, so I don’t continually compare the two. So I don’t know much about what’s happening in this trailer, although I can say that missing loved ones, limited supplies, and roving, lawless, armed gangs is pretty much par for the…
The Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be expanding uptown to Harlem when Luke Cage debuts on September 30. The cast and creators of the show say that the character’s race, his adopted neighborhood, and publishing history make Luke Cage a very different superhero adaptation.
Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle took on the monumental task of adapting Philip K. Dick’s alternate history story into a television series. Its attention to detail and depth of character made it a must-watch, and, at San Diego Comic-Con, the cast and crew revealed a bit of what comes next.
While Republicans and Democrats see eye to eye on very little, apparently there is one thing they both can agree on: Supernatural is a damn fine TV series. A new study reveals that the absurdly long-running show is in the three most loved TV programs of both parties, which is pretty much blowing my mind.
When Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman appeared on TV from 1975-1979, her hair was perfect, her superpowers always prevailed, and her sense of justice never wavered. Every episode followed basically the same outline—stop some would-be villain’s nefarious plot—but the specifics of government agent Diana Prince’s cases were…
Seven kingdoms! Seven gods! And now, season seven of Game of Thrones will only have seven episodes! Coincidence?! Almost certainly!
