"Preacher" Renewed For A Second Season 

Halfway through its inaugral run, AMC has officially renewed their new series "Preacher" for a second season. The acclaimed series adaptation of the Garth Ennis comic will also expand its run to thirteen episodes for its second season which is set to air next year. 

That's up from the ten that make up the current run. Five episodes have already aired, and AMC is planning a catch-up marathon tomorrow with all five set to re-air from 9pm US-ET tomorrow night. 

Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios says in a statement: "Preacher" is a special television program and we're eager to share with fans the rest of this wild first season and, now, an expanded second season. What Sam, Seth, Evan and the entire creative team have achieved in bringing Garth Ennis' graphic novel to the screen is extraordinary. We look forward to more time with these unforgettable characters be it in Heaven, Hell, Texas or beyond."

Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Lucy Griffiths and W. Earl Brown star in the darkly comic supernatural drama about a West Texas preacher inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. 

I wasn't overly excited with the 1st episode. I found it rather slow and somewhat confused on where it was going, but persevered and now the show is beginning to find its feet a little bit. I'm enjoying it.

Syfy Renews "12 Monkeys" For Season 3 

Syfy is renewing its well-regarded time-travel drama "12 Monkeys" for a third season of ten episodes. 

That's down on the thirteen episode orders of the first two seasons, nevertheless the renewal is a vote of confidence by the network in the show which draws not only good critical reaction but solid DVR gains. 

Terry Matalas is showrunner on the series which, though initially based on the Terry Gilliam 1996 film of the same name, has branched into a more complicated and sci-fi heavy narrative that also adopts a more amusing tone. 

The quality surprised many in the first season, and the second has only seen it go up in estimation with the show nabbing some strong reviews. 

"12 Monkeys" was the first of Syfy's brand reinvention with a return to smart scripted traditional science-fiction fare. Some of its attempts at that have worked such as the well-regarded "The Expanse," others like imports "Killjoys" and "Hunters" have been much less successful.

"Harry Potter" Star Joins "The Flash" For Season 3 

"Harry Potter" film series regular Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the films, has scored a series regular role on the third season of The CW's superhero drama "The Flash"

Felton will play Julian Dorn, a fellow CSI at Central City Police Department who suspects there's more to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) than his good guy reputation. 

The third season of the series will tackle the Flashpoint storyline from the comics. In the comics, Barry wakes up in an alternate timeline where his mother is alive, he has no powers and the Flash does not exist. Barry later finds out he is actually at fault for changing history. 

"The Flash" season three will premiere on October 4th on The CW.

Sleepy Hollow: 2 More Series Regulars Exit As Show Shifts Setting To D.C. 

Sleepy Hollow's Season 4 revamp is looking more like a wholesale overhaul, one that extends well beyond the arrival of a new female lead. 

Lance Gross and Jessica Camacho - who played FBI boss Daniel Reynolds and agent Sophie Foster, respectively - will not be returning as series regulars. Camacho is expected to make a guest appearance or two, while Gross will not be back at all. They join the previously departed Nicole Beharie (Abbie), Zach Appelman (Joe), Nikki Reed (Betsy) and Shannyn Sossamon (Pandora).

Gross and Camacho's departures dovetail with the series' decision to shift its setting from Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. to Washington, D.C. where Tom Mison's Crane will find himself working alongside a new rag-tag crew, including the previously reported Anna, endearingly eager research analyst Seth and a female MacGyver by the name of Rosa. Casting is also underway for a new male Big Bad. 

All told, Sleepy Hollow is adding five new series regulars, including Anna's 11-year-old daughter Stella. 

Despite the new D.C. setting, Sleepy will continue to be shot in Atlanta, sources confirm. Meanwhile, production on the show's 13-episode fourth season is slated to commence in early August ahead of an expected early 2017 premiere. 

Now that most of the cast have done a runner, the show must be in deep trouble?

Chicago Justice: Nazneen Contractor Exits Spin-off, Joins New CBS Drama 

Chicago Justice will be served by a slightly different team of lawyers when the NBC drama premieres midseason. 

Nazneen Contractor, who played ASA Dawn Patel in the backdoor pilot of the Chicago P.D. spin-off, has excited the series.

Contractor won't be without work for long, though. The actress has joined the upcoming CBS drama Ransom, from executive producer Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files). 

The Windy City-set franchise has experienced its fair share of cast changes. The Walking Dead alumna Laurie Holden appeared in backdoor pilot for Chicago Med, but then left the offshoot last July for "family reasons." Additionally. Scott Eastwood, Tania Raymonde, Kelly Blatz and Melissa Sagemiller were originally slated to star in P.D. 

The justice ensemble features Philip Winchester (The Player), Carl Weathers (Rocky), Joelle Carter (Justified) and newcomer Ryan-James Hatanaka. 

I remember Nazneen in Heroes Reborn i thought she acquitted herself very well as Farah in that show. She is very stunning.

Syfy Cancels "Hunters" After One Season 

Syfy has cancelled its drama series "Hunters" just days after the finale of its thirteen-episode first season. 

The series, executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd ("The Walking Dead,") follows government agents fighting a secret cell of alien terrorists. It scored both critical derision and low ratings over its run, making its cancellation unsurprising. 

"Hunters" was one of several original scripted science fiction series Syfy has pushed out in recent years in an effort to recapture its former glory. So far it has mostly been a success with both "12 Monkeys" and "The Expanse" scoring strong critical notices and solid enough ratings to score third and second season renewals respectively. 

And this is why i never started this new show on the network, i was keeping close tabs on the ratings and thought, Hmm! 'Hunters done up like a kipper'

Carrie Coon ("Gone Girl") has scored the leading female role in the third season of FX's "Fargo" opposite Ewan McGregor. 

Coon will portray Gloria Burgle, the very practical chief of police in Edna Valley and a newly divorced mother. She struggles to understand this new world around her where people connect more intimately with their phones than the people directly in front of them. 

McGregor will take on the dual roles of brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy in what will be his first TV series regular role. Production begins later this year for a 2017 debut on FX, and showrunner Noah Hawley confirms that none of the previous characters from the anthology show will be back for the third. 

Coon is currently filming the final season of "The Leftovers" for HBO. 

By she was good in the thriller movie 'Gone Girl'

Vikings Queen Joins Mist Adaptation 

Vikings queen Alyssa Sutherland has boarded the cast of The Mist, Spike's adaptation (via TWC-Dimension Television) of the classic Stephen King novella. 

Starting production this summer with an eye on a 2017 premier date, The Mist tells the story of a foreboding (you guessed it) mist that arrives in a small town, ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents and putting their humanity to the test.

Sutherland will play Eve Cunningham, a wife and mother who fights to protect her teenage daughter from unknown dangers lurking both inside and outside the mist, while also facing down her past.

Sutherland joins American Horror Story vet Frances Conroy, who was previously cast as Nathalie, a modern-day ecological martyr. 

In addition to her reign as Vikings' Aslaug, Sutherland's TV credits include episodes of SVU and Huge. 

Wow what a fine specimen of a beautiful woman standing at 5ft 11 in (1.80 m).
Great actress and so be it bags of charm as well.

Benedict Samuel Is Mad Hatter In "Gotham"

Fox and WBTV have selected "The Walking Dead" actor Benedict Samuel to take on the iconic role of The Mad Hatter on the upcoming third season of the Batman prequel series "Gotham."

The character first debuted in 1948 and was previously played by David Wayne in the original 1960s Batman series and voiced by Roddy McDowall in the 1990s animated series. Here's how "Gotham" describes him. 

"Jervis Tetch is a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone's guess just how far down the rabbit hole he's willing to go in order to find her."

"Gotham" Season 3 will premiere on September 19th.
