We’ve got months to go before Game of Thrones returns for its fifth season, but HBO is getting the promo started early. A new video has dropped that uses mostly (and possibly entirely) old footage. But it links Arya to the three-eyed raven, and ends with a shot that seems to promise something more. Watch the early Game of Thrones season 5 teaser below.

New episodes of Sherlock probably won’t hit the air, at least in America, until 2016. If we’re lucky, maybe late 2015, but nothing is set in stone. Well, that’s not entirely true. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who’ll both be seen in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will soon shoot a special episode of the show that will air during 2015.
We don’t know exactly what will happen in the episode as the finale of the third season offered quite the cliffhanger, but we have the first image that hints at the story. Maybe this episode won’t actually be in sequential order with the rest of the show. Check out the Sherlock special image and see for yourself. Read More »
Another day, another Star Wars scoop here on /Film. This one is from the television side.
Before Star Wars Rebels hit the air, Disney renewed it for a second season. That was a nice vote of confidence in the first piece of Star Wars storytelling created under the new Disney regime. So far, it’s worked out. We’re now about eight episodes in and the tales of Ezra, Kanan, Zeb, Hera and Sabine have a wonderful Star Wars feel while simultaneously adding much to what we know about a galaxy far, far away.
When promoting the show’s launch, no one involved would tell us exactly how Rebels could end, or even guess how long the series might run. Lucasfilm’s previous animated series, The Clone Wars, aired for about five seasons so that seemed like a reasonable guess. But still, there was no clue of just how far these stories set between Episodes III and IV would go.
/Film has now exclusively heard that Lucasfilm not only knows where Rebels will end, the company knows what’s next for the Star Wars animated world.

Selfie made its debut on good old-fashioned broadcast TV this fall, but it’ll finish up on the Internet. The ABC comedy has just found a new home at Hulu, following its cancellation earlier this month.
Karen Gillan and Henry Cho lead the series, billed as a modern-day telling of My Fair Lady — self-obsessed Eliza recruits prim co-worker Henry to “fix” her public image. Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory) created the series. More details on the Selfie unaired episodes after the jump.

Tina Fey‘s new show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, was going to be a mid-season replacement on NBC. That network, of course, is where Fey got her big break on Saturday Night Live; then it became the butt of her jokes on the award-winning sitcom 30 Rock. So it seemed like the perfect fit.
However, in what seems to be a happy split, the show – which stars Office-alum Ellie Kemper as a cult dropout trying to make it in New York City- will now debut on Netflix in March 2015. More so, it got an immediate two-season order from the streaming company. Read more about the new Tina Fey show and the move to Netflix below. Read More »

The Warren Ellis-penned comic book series Global Frequency is getting its third shot at television. A decade ago, The WB tried to set a Global Frequency TV series in motion, shooting a pilot based on the comic about an organization that attempts to protect the world from the influence of covert government actions. But the show didn’t get picked up, and the pilot, which starred Michelle Forbes and Josh Hopkins, disappeared into the aether, destined to be shared illegally for years to come. The CW tried again with a new pilot script a few years later, but that one didn’t even shoot.
Now, Fox has ordered a pilot for a new Global Frequency TV series, with Jerry Bruckheimer exec producing and Farscape and Defiance creator Rockne S. O’Bannon writing. Read More »
