Supernatural Season 15 Return Extended Trailer Released

The CW has released an extended trailer for the return of Supernatural before the final seven episodes air beginning Thursday, October 8th.

The epic journey of the Winchester brothers comes to a close as Supernatural returns for its final season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) and the angel Castiel (Misha Collins) have conquered monsters, demons, Heaven and Hell, and in the show’s 14th season, the Winchesters grappled with the Archangel Michael possessing Dean. In a valiant act, Sam and Dean’s surrogate son Jack (Alexander Calvert) destroyed his soul to redeem his adoptive father. But this proved to be a fatal error, leading to the accidental death of Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith). The 14th season also featured the return of John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) for the show’s historic 300th episode.

Now, in Season 15, Sam and Dean find themselves facing a threat beyond anything they’ve ever grappled with… anything they’ve ever imagined: God himself.

 

CBS All Access Releases The Stand Teaser Trailer

Stephen King’s The Stand isn’t about the end of the world. It’s about what comes after, when most of humanity has been wiped out by a plague. A new teaser trailer has officially been released.

The video begins with Frannie Goldsmith (Odessa Young), a pregnant young woman who survived the plague. Mother Abagail (Whoopi Goldberg) appears in a vision to invite Frannie to find her. There’s also a brief glimpse of Jovan Adepo as Larry Underwood, one of the main characters in the book. Larry and a handful of other survivors will ultimately band together under Mother Abagail’s leadership. Their collective hope is that they can avoid the mistakes of the past that doomed the rest of humanity.

However, there’s also a darker force in play. Alexander Skarsgård’s Randall Flagg is gathering his followers as well.  Flagg intends to control the new world, but first, he has to destroy Mother Abagail and her faction.

The Stand will premiere on CBS All Access on Thursday, December 17.

Disney’s The Haunted Mansion has hired Katie Dippold (Ghostbusters) to write the script for a new adaptation, replacing Guillermo del Toro.

Plot details are currently being kept under wraps for the new adaptation of the Burbank-based ride, especially given the only real story for the attraction is that guests are traveling through the titular location full of supernatural frights including a graveyard alive with spirits and the ghastly psychic Madame Leota.

 

 

The X-Files: Albuquerque Animated Series In Development At Fox

Fox is currently developing an animated comedy spinoff of The X-Files titled The X-Files: Albuquerque, with series creator Chris Carter executive producing.

The potential series will center on an office full of misfit agents who investigate X-Files cases too wacky, ridiculous, or downright dopey for Mulder and Scully to bother with, essentially acting as the X-Files’ B-team.

The project has received a script and presentation from the network. The pilot is being written by Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko (Paradise PD) who will also serve as executive producers along with Carter (who is not writing or showrunning) and former The X-Files writer Gabe Rotter.

American Horror Story Is Headed Back Into Production

American Horror Story is heading back into production. The anthology series will return to production for its tenth season this October. Co-creator Ryan Murphy took to his Instagram to unveil the news and to tease the show’s theme for the upcoming season.

“Looks like American Horror Story Season 10 is go for an October (fitting) production launch,” Murphy writes. “Thanks to everyone who is working hard to assure a safe start for the cast and crew. And yes this is a clue.” The writer then uploaded a picture of a mouth full of pointed teeth on a black background.

Murphy revealed Season 10 was weather-dependent, suggesting the show needed to begin filming earlier this year so that the weather on outdoor sets matched the plot. “A lot of what I was going to shoot was dependent on a very specific moment, it was a weather-dependent show,” Murphy told TheWrap about the new season. “So now I don’t know. I don’t know what we’re going to do. I don’t know what I’m gonna do next with that show. I don’t know if I’ll accelerate another season or wait till next year to shoot this one.”

The release date has since shifted to 2021 due to the delayed production start. This season will see the return of  Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Kathy Bates. Other cast members confirmed include Macaulay Culkin, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross, and Finn Wittrock.
