The future of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' has been literally and figuratively all over the map as we approach season 4 premiere on April 6. Some reports say the George R.R. Martin-adapted series will run for seven seasons, while Martin himself poses 10 with an added movie. Now, we at least have some confirmation 'Game of Thrones' will run at least six seasons, while the latest season 4 trailers have us more and more excited to return to Westeros.
All week long we've seen bits and pieces of the 'Mad Men' final season cast come to light amid an airport setting, though a few key characters had apparently gone missing. Now, the full set of cast photos and promotional season 7 materials have arrived, looking brighter and more colorful than we've ever seen from the AMC drama.
The first photos and teaser from 'Mad Men''s seventh and final season predictably didn't reveal very much, unless we're to believe that the entire season relocates the offices of Sterling-Cooper & Associates to the inside of an airport. The second round of photos from the final season have arrived in gorgeous hi-res as well, showing a few more familiar faces amid the 'Mad Men' madness.
Surprise, surprise, and a hearty "bazinga" to fans everywhere. CBS' unstoppable juggernaut 'The Big Bang Theory' continues to reign supreme as one of the most-watched series on television, and the CBS empire has no intention of letting it go quietly into the night. The nerd comedy has been renewed for an additional three seasons, keeping Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Howard, Raj, Bernadette and Amy Farrah Fowler on the air through at least 2017.
It's become something of a running gag that 'Mad Men' keeps spoilers airtight right through the premiere, but even the recent key art and photo from the final season at least implied we might see Don Draper do a bit of travel. Now, Roger, Peggy and Megan have all gotten in on the go with the latest 'Mad Men' season key art, while Matthew Weiner has offered up a few suggestions as to what we might see in "The End of an Era."
We've seen 'The Simpsons' pay tribute to late voice actress Marcia Wallace on multiple occasions, but its latest is the most heartfelt and lovingly crafted yet. Last night's installment, "The Man Who Grew Too Much," officially put Ms. Krabappel to rest with a closing tag that saw Ned Flanders missing his second wife and her iconic laugh.
Apart from all the great TV premiering in April, from 'Game of Thrones' to 'Orphan Black,' 'Veep' and more, AMC's 'Mad Men' will also kick off the first half of its final season, thanks to the 7-7 episode split of its seventh run. The first official teaser for the April 13 premiere has arrived, and it looks like unemployment has been plenty kind to our favorite former ad man.
FOX's impending '24' revival, titled '24: Live Another Day,' has scarcely shot an inch of footage to the point where its recent Super Bowl trailer was specially created for promotion, but a major casting tweak should keep things rolling along. Following Emmy-winner Judy Davis' unexpected exit from production, 'Live Another Day' has added fan-favorite 'Game of Thrones' mom Michelle Fairley in the pivotal role!
Apart from the shock that FOX's '24' would live on at all to spawn this May's coming miniseries '24: Live Another Day,' the new adventures of Jack Bauer continue to surprise us with casting. Following news that 'Chuck' and 'Dexter' star Yvonne Strahovski would take part, iconic UK funnyman Stephen Fry has joined 'Live Another Day' in an important role, along with several others.
Apart from any behind-the-scene sadness, 'The Simpsons' still aims to kill off one of its most iconic characters at some point in the coming year, just like Maude Flanders and Fat Tony (briefly) before. Producers have been rather tight-lipped about which Springfieldian might face the axe, but iconic voice actor and star Hank Azaria isn't shy about crossing a few names from the death pool.
