THE ORIGINALS Extended Season 4 Preview: Klaus and Hope Reunite


Bad things are happening in New Orleans in the new extended preview for season 4 of THE ORIGINALS. But there’s some good news as well, so let’s tackle that first. After five years of being in a magically-induced coma, Freya, Elijah, Rebekah and Kol were woken up, thanks to Hayley. Now the Mikaelsons are heading back to New Orleans to save Klaus, who has been kept captive by Marcel for all of these years.

According to the preview below, Klaus will be reunited with his siblings and with his daughter. But here’s where the bad comes in: something strange is happening to Hope. And to other children in New Orleans, and it seems like Vincent is in the thick of it.

Elsewhere in the preview we see Cami’s “spirit” guide Klaus and Jason Dohring’s Detective Kinney also pops back up this season.

New episodes of THE ORIGINALS airs on Fridays at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

iZOMBIE Season 3 Preview: Rise of the Zombies


Liv’s zombie secret is out in season 3 of iZOMBIE. Now that Clive and Peyton are both fully aware of the fact that she and Major are zombies, their little group dynamic will be very different. And not only that, but Liv has become aware that there are far more zombies living in Seattle than she previously believed.

Season 3 will really introduce fans to a private military contractor that is actually employing a zombie army — an army that is preparing for the day that humans become aware of zombies. We’re also going to see Major deal with the fallout of being falsely labelled the Choas Killer — he may have been exonerated, but he’s still being shunned.

In a new preview below we also see some of the fun coming our way — including the fact that Major dines on teenage girl brains (which leads to a lot of selfies).

Don’t miss the season premiere of iZOMBIE on Tuesday, April 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

NBC has unveiled its summer schedule, which includes returning shows like AMERICA’S GOT TALENT, THE CARMICHAEL SHOW and AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR, as well as the premiere of new shows like MIDNIGHT, TEXAS and SNL: WEEKEND UPDATE.

In partnership with preeminent global dance brand World of Dance, the series brings the world’s elite dancers together to compete in epic battles of artistry, precision and athleticism for a life-altering prize of $1 million. Solo dancers will compete against duos and crews in an unlimited range of dance including hip-hop, popping, locking, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom, stomping and more.

Jennifer Lopez, NE-YO and Derek Hough will be at the judges table with Jenna Dewan Tatum set as host/mentor.

Following the show’s most viewed season in five years where the finale came down to 13-year-old singing sensation Grace VanderWaal winning over spellbinding illusionist duo The Clairvoyants,
AMERICA’S GOT TALENTis back for its 12thseason with creator and judge Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, as well as new host Tyra Banks.

Inspired by the life of comedian Jerrod Carmichael, the series follows Jerrod and his opinionated North Carolina family as they navigate topics that all families face in America today. Jerrod often finds himself debating such issues with his old-school father, Joe (David Alan Grier); his devoutly religious mother, Cynthia (Loretta Devine); his fiancée, Maxine (Amber Stevens West); his social media-loving brother, Bobby (Lil Rel Howery); and Bobby’s outspoken almost-ex-wife, Nekeisha (Tiffany Haddish). And somewhere in the middle of all of their disagreeing is the heart of this family.

The Emmy Award-nominated AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR returns for its sixth full season on NBC. Matt Iseman is back as host, along with Akbar Gbajabiamila and co-host Kristine Leahy.

This season the show will make stops in Los Angeles, Calif.; San Antonio, Texas; Daytona Beach, Fla.; Kansas City, Mo.; Cleveland, Ohio; and Denver, Colo., before heading to Las Vegas for the national finals.

Groups of friends, families, co-workers and more must work together to test their determination, endurance and will. Teams of five will compete on one the most demanding courses ever devised and will have to push through the pain to win $250,000.

Following up on the success of LITTLE BIG SHOTS, in which kids brought their amazing talents to a primetime audience, LITTLE BIG SHOTS: FOREVER YOUNG is where young-at-heart seniors will showcase their hidden talents, vibrant personalities and incredible wisdom.

The comedy/variety series, from Warner Horizon Television, will be executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and series host Steve Harvey.

With more than $12 million on the line every night, and up to $3 million on a drop at four-stories high, THE WALLwas built for one purpose — to change everyday people’s lives in an instant.

Hosted and executive produced by actor, comedian, author and TV personality Chris Hardwick, THE WALL offers a pair of deserving teammates life-altering cash prizes. The rules are simple: Get a question correct and a green ball will fall down the wall and add the value of the slot to the players’ winning total. Miss a question and an ominous red ball will fall and deduct the value from the team. Teammates have to work together to build a huge cash prize.

Doctors, nurses and the medical staff at San Antonio Memorial Hospital will be busier than ever during the fourth season of the fast-paced medical drama THE NIGHT SHIFT

Based on the best-selling book series by Charlaine Harris (author of the novels that inspired “True Blood”), MIDNIGHT, TEXAS stars François Arnaud (“The Borgias”) as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of Midnight’s local pawn shop (Dylan Bruce, “Orphan Black”); Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley, “Luke Cage”); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion (Arielle Kebbel, “The Vampire Diaries”); Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight’s secrets having been around for millennia (Jason Lewis, “Sex and the City”); Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight (Peter Mensah, “True Blood”); Creek, an aspiring writer with big dreams (Sarah Ramos, “Parenthood”); and Rev. Emilio Sheehan, who can’t resist the pull of a full moon (Yul Vazquez, “Captain Phillips”).

HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT, hosted by Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Jane Lynch, returns for a fifth season with celebrities such as Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley from THIS IS US, and Ben Feldman, Lauren Ash and Nico Santos from SUPERSTORE, as well as Michael Bolton, NE-YO, Natalie Morales, Mike Colter, Chris Hardwick, Margaret Cho, Gabby Douglas, Matt Iseman, Taye Diggs, RuPaul and many more who will join in the fun as they face off in hilarious party games.

NBC is bringing a late-night institution to primetime with a four-episode order for SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: WEEKEND UPDATE The half-hour telecast will feature “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che. Additional SNL cast members will also make appearances.

Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans (“In Living Color,” “Scary Movie”), this update to the classic family comedy centers on a loving (but inappropriate) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife. While his misguided fatherly advice, unstoppable larger-than-life personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom might get in the way sometimes, for Marlon family really always does come first — even if he’s the biggest kid of all.
