The future of Constantine has been uncertain ever since NBC decided to limit the first season order to 13 episodes, and has been sluggish about calling for a second season. But if one rumor is correct, things may not be as dire as they seem. Word is that NBC might bounce Constantine over to SyFy, which, for one, would change ratings expectations for the show.

As Coach Taylor on Friday Night Lights, Kyle Chandler projected a reassuring warmth and wisdom. No matter how badly his players screwed up, he was always there to dole out sage advice or set them right with his stern yet understanding gaze.
In his new role in Netflix’s Bloodline, however, it seems Chandler’s the one in need of some guidance. He plays one of four adult children of a wealthy Florida Keys family, whose lives take a dark turn after the arrival of black-sheep eldest brother Danny (played by Ben Mendelsohn, because of course).
Linda Cardellini and Norbert Leo Butz play the other siblings, and Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard are their parents. Watch the Bloodline trailer after the jump.

Last year when Marvel announced an Inhumans movie for 2018, not many people outside comics fandom knew what an Inhuman was. So Marvel has been using various channels to introduce the concept of the mutant-like characters to broad audiences. We’ll probably see a couple in Avengers: Age of Ultron when that film opens in May, but for now the bulk of the Inhumans outreach is being done by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Luke Mitchell, of The CW’s show The Tomorrow People, has just been cast as an Inhuman named Lincoln. Read More »

There’s no real rhyme or reason why it happened, but on Wednesday’s night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the host did the impossible. He got four of the original six stars of Saved By The Bell, plus one special guest, to reunite for a skit.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley all appeared as their Bayside selves – along with Dennis Haskins – for a skit about Jimmy Fallon‘s high school life. It’s probably all the Internet is going to be talking about today, so why not give it a watch below. Read More »
The next project from Marc Webb, who spent the last few years making the two Amazing Spider-Man movies for Sony, will be a superhero tale of sorts. But this new project won’t exactly be in the same vein he’s been mining of late. Webb is now set to direct the Limitless TV pilot, thereby launching the CBS series based on the Bradley Cooper film of the same name in which a drug can expand human mental capabilities to incredible levels.
