The Walking Dead motorcycle ridin’ cast member Norman Reedus spoke to the press this week, teasing exciting elements of the hit AMC show’s seventh season. In one interview, Reedus responded to fan frustration with the season six finale’s cliffhanger saying, “It’s well worth the wait, that cliffhanger, I will say that. This season that we’re doing now is going to answer every question.” He discussed the preciousness and privacy of every moment on set in the woods. “It would almost be doing it a disservice to us to go around blabbing about it,” he said, “because we put so much work into it, and it’s so personal to us that we almost don’t want to talk about it too much.” He feels that making art should start conversations like TWD has, and it’s a compliment regardless of the feedback. Reedus’ new show, Ride with Norman Reedus, premieres Sunday on AMC.



Multiple sources are reporting that cancelled series Nashville might be nearing a pick-up agreement with CMT for a fifth season of the music industry based soap. While still a rumor, Lionsgate Television has been shopping around the former ABC drama, which was cancelled by the network in May. Nashville could find a well-suited home on CMT, alongside their new show, Still the King, and make a strong addition to their developing stable of scripted series.


Superman Supergirl

It was revealed earlier this week that Superman will indeed appear on Supergirl next season. The role of Kara’s famous cousin is currently being cast, but we know we can expect him to show up in the first two episodes of the second season. Kal-El has already been seen on the show in flashbacks to Kara’s life on Krypton, however in the upcoming season he will be the already famous Superman we know. So get ready to see Clark Kent and his red-caped alter ego when Supergirl returns to its new home, the CW, this fall!

HBO has added the final three episodes of Game of Thrones 6th season to their schedule, revealing episode names that may hint at possible spoilers as to their contents.  ***SPOILERS AHEAD*** The 8th episode, “No One” hints at the resolutions to Arya’s predicament in Braavos. The 9th episode, “Battle of the Bastards” might likely feature a showdown between the bastard Jon Snow, and the bastard formerly know as Snow, Ramsey Bolton. The final episode that will air on June 26th is entitled “Winds of Winter” — a reference to the title of George R.R. Martin’s still unreleased 6th book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. “Winds of Winter” is scheduled to run 69 minutes — The longest episode of Game of Thrones to date.

    Adding Supes to “Supergirl” won’t improve the show one iota, but eliminating the cheesy melodrama and frequently vapid dialogue definitely will….

    • Tracy Williams Jr

      Agreed. The chance for Clark to come on the show has past, they need better writing. While Flash sometimes has too much cheese for it’s own good as well, most of the time they find the right balance.

      • Revenant Traveler

        Couldn’t have said better myself.

  • Mike McLin

    Why would you title the piece “Game of Thrones Announces Biggest Episode yet…”, and then put the length of the episode in the “Spoilers Ahead” section? Why not give us the length (the reason I’m reading the article) and then have your spoilers section. FYI, for people reading this, the length of the episode will be 69 minutes.
