PRISON BREAK Sneak Peek: Michael Hatches a Plan

pb

How many prisons can Michael Schofield break out of? According to a sneak peek from the Fox PRISON BREAK revival: at least one more.

When we last saw the PRISON BREAK gang, they had all (with the exception of T-Bag) been pardoned and were living unassuming lives. Michael had passed away and Sara was raising their son. But it turns out that Michael isn’t dead after all. When T-Bag delivers this news to Lincoln, he and C-Note travel overseas to confirm that Michael is alive and figure out a way to get him out of prison.

But Michael is already hatching a plan of his own inside the foreign prison and it involves a stick of gum from a fellow inmate.

Watch a sneak peek below from the new PRISON BREAK, which premieres in the spring of 2017.

UNREAL Sneak Peek: Quinn’s In Charge

unreal

After several weeks of upheaval and unrest, the reality-show inside UNREAL has a show-runner: Quinn. But it’s all tight-lips and shut-mouths because of the behind-the-scenes drama, so in order to combat this Quinn gives one big instruction: shove romance down the audience’s throat.

That romance may be a little complicated, however, because according to Jay and Madison, the girls are still worried about Darius and his health. But, of course, Quinn has the solution: lovely, sickly sweet romantic dates complete with helicopter rides and dancing should show the girls that Darius is up to snuff.

Viewers will have to see if this new plan works. Catch an all new UNREAL tonight (July 25) at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.

SUPERNATURAL Comic-Con Panel: The Cast and Producers Tease Season 12

supernatural

God and Amara made up in the season finale of SUPERNATURAL, putting aside millennia of family anger and heading off for some alone time. Meanwhile, Dean got a gift in the form of his resurrected mother, while an operative from the British Men of Letters may have shot Sam.  And Cas got banished by the operative, while Crowley found himself adrift after losing his throne to Lucifer.

SUPERNATURAL stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark Sheppard and Misha Collins — along with producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb — took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con to tease what’s to come in season 12.

11.22 – We opened with a sizzle reel from last season, featuring amusing fan reactions to episodes.

11.24 – We were also treated to scenes from the premiere. Dean asks his mother if she’s real and as he approaches her, she takes him down to the ground. There’s a few scenes of Mary and Dean in the car and Sam tied up in the back of a trunk and being burned by a blowtorch. Cas is fighting with an angel blade on a road and Mary seems confused by cell phones. Mary also says “I never wanted this for you and Sam”.

11.30 – Moderators Richard Speight and Rob Benedict introduce Jensen as having launched his career on “The Bowlegged and the Beautiful”.

11.31 – “You don’t get bigger than God,” Singer said. “We’re going to try to get back to basics a little bit. Tell smaller stories. Some good old-fashioned horror stories. We’ve set up the British MOL and they’ll be part of what we’re doing. [Also in] the first part of the season, there’s a hunt for Lucifer.”

11.33 – Padalecki said that “Sam Winchester is alive. Because he’s not a lose-chester”. We will find out more about Toni, who is part of the British MOL and more about their worldwide society. We’ll also find out more about what they want from Sam and Dean in the episodes to come.

11.35 – How will the boys respond to Mary’s return? Ackles said that it presents the show with a dynamic we have never had. When Mary died, Sam was a baby and Dean was a child. “Dean grew up and Sam just got larger,” he joked. The children that she know, they’re now men, so the relationship is “kind of non-existent. It’s going to be an interesting situation of them trying to bridge that massive gap that occurred over the past 30 some odd years”. But how will she plug herself into their lives? Will that leave the brothers vulnerable? For the longest time the best way to get to one of the brothers is to trap one and get the other to come running, but throwing Mary into the mix can make them vulnerable too. He doesn’t know exactly where it will take the boys, but he’s excited for it.

11.37 – Samantha Smith (Mary Winchester) joins the panel.

11.38 – Smith said that Mary’s sons are now “older and taller than [she] is.” She’s always loved Mary and now she gets a chance to experience her from a whole new perspective. And now she doesn’t have to pass through as a ghost, so she’s having a lot of fun. “It could go anywhere”.

11.39 – Padalecki said that one of the things that SUPERNATURAL has been able to do is to explore “both sides of the equation”. One of the biggest things about the show is family and it will be an interesting dynamic to see someone like Mary who is 100% of Sam and Dean’s blood, we’ll find out more about how family is formed and what it means. It’s about “exploring that dynamic between two brothers and two sons again. Sam always had an issue with John for obvious reasons probably. But he dealt with it. Now Sam and Dean with their mother is starting anew.” Does blood make you family or is it about more than just sharing DNA?

11.42 – Dabb said that Mary has been mythologized to the brothers. They’re meeting someone who they have some knowledge of, but they don’t really know her. “We didn’t want things to be super easy”. She was raised a hunter and walked away from it like Sam did. But now she’s getting back into it. This is something they deeply want, but they understand family can be a vulnerability. Cas knows how important Mary has been to Sam and Dean, so he has a specific response to her as well.

11.43 – Collins said that Cas is back to a little bit of “Cas from season 4″.  He thinks Cas’ wings are still broken, but he’s got a lot of his mojo. He’s angry and he’s got a fighting spirit and he’s after Lucifer.  Collins also joked that Cas is tattling a lot to Mary.

11.44 – Collins said there’s an interesting dynamic between Cas and Mary because “in a way we’re outsiders”.

11.46 – Benedict’s hamster makes a reappearance at this panel.

11.49 – Sheppard said there’s a hint that “my family dynamic might be returning in a slightly more expanded scale. I genuinely love Ruth, but I cannot stand Rowena”.

11.50 – Ruth O’Connell also makes an appearance at the panel. “Hello, Mother,” Sheppard says dryly.

11.51 – Will any old characters return? Jody and Donna will be back, as will Claire and Alex. Gavin (Crowley’s son) will be back as well.

11.52 – Dabb said Rowena had a big move this past season. She’s wanted to be the power behind five different thrones since we met her. In season 12 she’s taking a step back and we’ll meet her “in kind of a funny and cool mindset”.  But then she’ll be drawn back in. For Crowley, he’s been dethroned by Lucifer. Early on, revenge will be a driving force. In the future, Crowley’s relationship with the boys will keep developing.

11.54 - Singer said that Lucifer is going to try out a few different vessels, but he needs a strong one. The first vessel that he feels comfortable with is a rock star who is trying to make a comeback. His name will be Vince and we’ll see him in a few episodes early on. Vince will be played by Rick Springfield (he shot his first scene on Friday)! Dabb said that ruling Heaven or Hell lacks an appeal now. But being Lucifer comes with baggage, so he’s trying to take a bit of a vacation.

11.58 – Collins said that Cas became Lucifer because he was really down on himself (a bit of self-loathing and self-sacrifice).

11.59 – Padalecki said that he and Ackles “walked into a restaurant and someone said ‘Damn, are you here to kill ghosts or something?’ He seemed genuinely concerned.” He said sometimes when the light flickers or it gets cold, he says “it’s OK, guys, I got this”. Ackles said that the paranormal would probably be smart enough to steer clear of two guys who have played hunters for over a decade. “That being said, if we ever do run into an issue, I feel like I could handle myself”.

12.05 – In a surprise move, a questioner asks his girlfriend if she’ll marry him. The cast applauds.

12.07 – Ackles says the other day he asked his 3 year old daughter if Padalecki’s sons are her friends and she said “no, they’re my boys”. He assumes their kids are going to want to “stay in the family business”.

12.09 – Padalecki says that we have never seen the brothers have a proper dynamic as “being sons”. They get a chance to be boys again with Mary.

12.11 – Ackles says he’s looking forward to seeing the hunter side of Mary and the similarities in how she deals with the supernatural and how the boys deal with it.

Stay tuned for more from the SUPERNATURAL press room!

SUPERNATURAL returns for its twelfth season on Thursday, October 13 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

ARROW Comic-Con Panel and Trailer: The Cast and Producers Tease Season 5 and Reveal New Footage

arrow

Season 4 of ARROW ended on such a bittersweet note. We lost Laurel and Team Arrow has been disbanded, following the events of the finale. Dahrk was defeated, but Diggle and Thea begged off the team in order to heal their wounds and rethink  their life choices. Oliver and Felicity were the only ones left standing and, with Oliver starting his new job as Mayor of Star City, we are all so curious to find out how everything is going to play out.

ARROW stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne, and Echo Kellum — along with executive producers Wendy Mericle and Mac Guggenheim — took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con to tease what’s coming up in season 5.

Thanks to a new preview for season 5, we know that Oliver will be training new vigilantes. We were also told that the new big bad for the year will be known as Prometheus, but it’s not the Prometheus from Justice League. He will fit into the theme of “legacy” for the year.

Other highlights:

  • Katie Cassidy will be appearing in episode 5.01 of ARROW. She is also not gone from the DC universe and will be appearing in ARROW, FLASH and LEGENDS OF TOMORROW in the future.
  • Amell said there was an extreme version of Oliver in season 1 and a reactionary Oliver in season 2 after the death of Tommy. But now Oliver is back to the mission of honoring what his father asked him to do and protect Star City. It might not be the end of the show, but it’s the end of a five-year journey. And if they do this year right, they can start anew in season 6.
  • The 100th episode will be episode 5.08 and it will be chapter 2 of the three-part crossover. And then episode 5.09 will be the mid-season finale.
  • Rickards said that Felicity will be dealing with a lot of bottled-up emotions in season 5. She’s holding on to the guilt of killing 10,000 people and trying to deal with that.
  • At the beginning of season 5, Diggle is with special forces in Chechnya. He misses the team, but he’s still dealing with the tragic death of Black Canary and the death of his brother. During THE FLASH panel they also revealed that he will be affected by the Flashpoint storyline.
  • We’ll be finding out a lot more about Curtis this year, especially with respect to his marriage. He wants to become a vigilante and start fighting crime. At the same time, he’s got this husband at home who will start to notice something is up and it’s going to raise some questions.
  • In season 4, Thea went through a lot and in season 5 she’ll be helping Oliver out in different ways, according to Holland. He’s a vigilante moonlighting as a mayor, so it sounds like Thea will be helping Oliver at City Hall. Amell said that Oliver’s focus is on being a vigilante and Thea is carrying all the water as mayor.
  • Malcolm will be wearing a lot of different hats across the DC shows next season.
  • What’s in store for Oliver and Felicity in season 5? “It’s still a partnership,” Mericle said. Their relationship is a bit ambiguous, but the fans will find out more.

ARROW will return on Wednesday, October 5 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. 

THE FLASH Comic-Con Panel: The Cast and Producers Tease Season 3 and Reveal New Footage

the flash

Earth-1 will not be the same again, after last season’s jaw-dropping cliffhanger. It all seemed to be going to turn out just fine – after all, they had finally defeated Zoom and all was well again – but a grieving Barry decided to act recklessly, after his father was murdered, and ran back in time to save his mother. That single action will most likely have so many catastrophic repercussions, because Barry managed to erase an entire timeline, and has no idea what kind of present (future?) he has created.

THE FLASH stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Keiynan Lonsdale — along with executive producers Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing — took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con to tease what’s coming up in season 3. Tom Felton (who is joining the cast as Julian Dorn) also made an appearance on the panel.

Thanks to a preview for season 3 (watch it below), we know a lot of things changed when Barry saved his mother. His mother and father are alive, Cisco is filthy rich, Iris and Barry don’t know each other and Reverse Flash is back and trapped. How big are the changes? “This is something that is going to ripple throughout the whole season,” the producers said. And several characters will have different relationships with different characters.

The Flashpoint paradox will also be affecting ARROW. One of the effects is with Diggle himself, although they wouldn’t go into any details.

Other highlights:

  • There will be two big bads this season. One is a speedster that they will reveal later. The other (spotted in a mask in the preview for season 3) is Dr. Alchemy. He’s a bad guy and will be a formidable adversary to the Flash and everyone else on the team for the season.
  • Barry doesn’t realize how big the changes are. He’s unaware of the other changes beyond his parents being alive, Gustin said. When we find him, he’s been living in the Flashpoint timeline for three months. Joe, Iris and Barry are just acquaintances. But there’s hope for Barry and Iris, because the producers said that in any timeline Barry and Iris will find one another.
  • Valdes says Flashpoint Cisco is an “ostentatious billionaire”. His specialty? “Making money. He’s always flexing how much money he has.” But there will still be quips and he’s still an engineer at heart.
  • In the new timeline, Joe is “very unhappy,” Martin said. He’s having big issues with his daughter and it “doesn’t seem solvable. So Joe becomes quite depressed about it. It starts to affect his life and starts to affect his work.” Apparently things get so dire that Barry is the reason Joe still has a job because it seems like Barry is covering for Joe.
  • Lonsdale says that Wally West/Kid Flash has a “young, light-hearted cockiness to him” that can sometimes be his downfall. But he’s never been “more sure of himself”.
  • Felton teased that there will be “friction” between Barry and Julian early on in the season and Julian will be stepping on Barry’s toes in terms of Barry’s role as a forensic expert.
  • Harrison Wells isn’t around in the Flashpoint timeline, so there’s no indication how Cavanagh will return yet.
  • The Helbings said that Felicity would appear on THE FLASH this season.

THE FLASH will return for its third season on Tuesday, October 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Comic-Con Panel: The Cast and Producers Tease Season 2

legends of tomorrow

The legends defeated Vandal Savage at the end of LEGEND OF TOMORROW’s first season. With their immortal enemy defeated, Kendra and Connor headed off together to live their lives free of Savage, while the others boarded the Waverider to help Rip protect the timeline now that the Time Masters have been defeated.

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Arthur Darvill, Brandon Roth, Caity Lotz, Victor Garber, Franz Drameh, and Dominic Purcell — along with executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Phil Klemmer — took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con to tease what’s coming up in season 2. Newcomers to the cast Nick Zano (who plays Dr. Nate Heywood) and Maisie Richardson-Sellers (who plays Vixen) also joined the panel. Everyone who was on the panel today was confirmed as the full line-up for season 2.

The big cliffhanger at the end of season 1 was the appearance of a member of the Justice Society of America (JSA). The JSA is about the golden-age generation of superheroes, Klemmer said. For the team, it’s about the current generation meeting the older generation.

Which JSA members will we see in season 2 of LEGENDS OF TOMORROW? Guggenheim teased that Dr. Midnight, Stargirl, Obsidian, Commander Steel (not to be confused with Citizen Steel) and Vixen will be making an appearance.

Other highlights:

  • We will see new and old characters “right out of the gate” in season 2. Stephen Amell will be appearing as Mayor Oliver Queen at the beginning of the LEGENDS OF TOMORROW season premiere. Fans will also see Damian Darhk in LEGENDS in the 1920s.
  • Jonah Hex will be returning in episode 2.06.
  • Rory will be even more outrageous in season 2, according to Purcell. Particularly now that the looming shadow of Snart is gone and no longer reigning him in.
  • Darvill says that Rip is like a disappointed parent with the team. But we get a “big twist” early on that “changes everything” for him.
  • Zano says that Nate and Sara will clash a bit. On the flip side, Vixen will be getting along with Sara and clashing with Rory.
  • The question for season 2 is “if the Legends don’t belong here, where they do belong?” They’re almost “victims of their own success” after their achievements at the end of season 1, Klemmer says. So what is next for them? By destroying the Time Masters, time has been left unguarded. So now time criminals are running rampant and the Legends are in charge of guarding “all of history”.
  • What big threats will the Legends be facing this year? In the pilot last year we knew everything about the big threat. Season 2 is more about little mysteries, Klemmer said. Instead of one bad guy, there will be multiple bad guys. The team will be responsible for fixing “aberrations” — people who are messing with the fabric of time.
  • If you’re going to have a team of superheroes, you need a team of super villains. So they’re going to start with Matt Letscher as Eobard Thawne (who will be a series regular) and also Damian Darhk — who are two members of the new “Legion of Doom”. Sara in particular will be eager to get her hands on Darhk in order to get her revenge for Laurel’s death.
  • Wentworth Miller will be returning as Captain Cold, thanks to time travel! He’ll be part of the Legion of Doom.
  • John Barrowman made a surprise appearance at the panel, which means Malcolm Meryln will also be part of the Legion of Doom.
  • Guggenheim says that we still haven’t seen the full story of the Hawks yet, so while there’s no set story right now, chances are they will revisit the characters in the future.

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW will return for season 2 on Thursday, October 13 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
