Code Black Season 3: Moon Bloodgood Checks In As Rob Lowe's New 'Partner'
Rob Lowe is venturing out into the field on Code Black next season - and he's hitching a ride with Moon Bloodgood.
The Falling Skies alum is joining the CBS medical drama's upcoming third season in the recurring role of Rox, a brassy and competitive paramedic who thinks fast on her feet and doesn't scare easily. Heroic and full of command, she finds a new challenge in her ride-along partner, Lowe's Dr. Willis.
As exec producer Michael Seitzman explains, Willis - who is an active member of the military - "changes his focus of training in Season 3 to field medicine. "As a result, the EP says the doc will end up spending the "majority of his shifts" in an ambulance or chopper along side Bloodgood's formidable Rox.
Code Black Season 3 will bow in early 2018.
The lucky 'git' I wish i was working with her, absolutely loved her in 'Falling Skies' she was pretty awesome.

'The Oath': Ryan Kwanten To Co-Star In Crackle Drama Series
Former True Blood star Ryan Kwanten is set for a lead role opposite Sean Bean in Crackle's upcoming drama series The Oath, executive produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson (Power) and his G-Unit Film & Television. In addition, Kwanten will serve as a producer on the series.
Kwanten will play Steve Hammond, son of Tom Hammond (Bean) and the leader of a cop gang, The Ravens. A cool, pragmatic, reluctant leader with the mind and instincts of a shrewd tactician, Hammond is a survivor - a natural protector who values taking care of those closest to him, his family, his team.
Written and created by former Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-o, Secrets &Lies), the 10-episode original series explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join - only a select few make the cut-but once inside, members will do what they must to protect each other from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks.
The premiere episode will be directed by Jeff T. Thomas (Blindspot, Wayward Pines).
Kwanten starred for seven seasons on the critically praised HBO series True Blood.

Netflix Revives "Sense8" For A Series Finale
Bowing to both fan pressure and the obvious sense of having an original series with a proper ending, Netflix will be moving forward with a one-off, two-hour finale episode of the recently cancelled "Sense8".
The sci-fi series, from the Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski, was abruptly axed after two seasons - despite ending on a cliffhanger.
Now, in the form of a letter from co-creator Lana Wachowski posted on Netflix's official social media channels, it has been revealed that the show will be back for a double episode that will wrap up the show's narrative.
The "Sense8" finale is expected to air sometime next year.
It'll be interesting to see how they'll wrap it up in 2 hours, lets face it we've all been their with a cliffhanger (cough,TSCC). But hey, good for the fans to get some closure instead of ending on a cliffhanger all the time.

When Does Outlander Season 3 Start?
Fans still have months to wait because the sci-fi romance is not set to return to Starz and Amazon Prime until September 2017.
Outlander fans are disappointed that the release date is still so far away because the last two series both started in April.
The film crew shot pivotal voyage scenes on sets in Cape Town in March and production is expected to wrap up in June.
Starz president of programming Carmi Zlotnik said "While 'Droughtlander' will last just a little longer, we feel it is important to allow the production the time and number of episodes needed to tell the story of the 'Voyager' book in its entirety.
"The scale of this book is immense, and we owe the fans the very best show. Returning in September will make that possible."
Meanwhile, More4 will begin airing the first Outlander season, consisting of 16 episodes. The first episode is at 9pm on Thursday June 29.
Season 3 of Outlander will be based on the Voyager, the third book in the hit series written by Diana Gabaldon.

Once Upon A Time Season 7 Reset: Gabrielle Anwar, Devious Maids Alum, Reign Star Among 5 New Additions
ABC is putting a face to Once Upon a Time's Season 7 reset. Five faces, actually.
The Friday-bound fantasy drama is adding nearly a half-dozen new female cast members, most notably Burn Notice alum Gabrielle Anwar, Devious Maids vet Dania Ramirez and ex-Reign royal Adelaide Kane. Also boarding the rejiggered seventh season: Chicago Med's Mekia Cox and English actress Rose Reynolds (Poldark).
The new blood infusion comes as Once boldly heads into uncharted narrative territory, down six key cast members including Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Jared Gilmore and Rebecca Mader. (Longtime Once stars Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle and Colin O'Donoghue are staying put.)
As teed up in the Season 6 finale, Once Season 7 will revolve around a grown-up Henry (played by The Walking Dead's Andrew J. West) and his daughter Lucy (Jane The Virgin's Alison Fernandez). The officially logline for the "reset" warns that "the residents of the Enchanted Forest face their greatest challenger yet" as Parrilla's Evil Queen, O'Donoghue's Captain Hook and Carlyle's Rumplestiltskin join forces with Henry and Lucy" on an epic quest to once again bring hope to their world and ours. Along the way, fairy tale characters new and old search for true love, find adventure and once again take sides in the struggle of good against evil, as classic tales are once more twisted and reimagined."
Once Upon a Time this fall shifts to Fridays at 8/7c, a premiere date has not yet been announced.

Along with Bean, Law joins previously announced members of the ensemble cast Ryan Kwanten, Cory Hardrict and Arlen Escarpeta.

Westworld Recruits Leftovers Alum Katja Herbers For Season 2 Role
Westworld just issued Katja Herbers a very generous park pass.
The Leftovers actress has been added as a series regular in the HBO sci-fi drama's second season.
Herbers' Grace is a big fan of the park who arrives as things go seriously haywire, which we're guessing starts right after the events of the Season 1 finale.
Earlier this year, Louis Herthum and Talulah Riley - who play Dolores' dad Peter Abernathy and park welcome host Angela, respectively - were promoted to series-regular status, as well.
In addition to her memorable arc on The Leftovers' final season, Herbers' TV credits include Manhattan and The Americans.
HBO renewed Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's Westworld for a 10-episode Season 2 in November, those episodes likely will not premiere until 2018.
