Gladiators, are you ready for the new season of Scandal? Because based on the scoop we’ve been getting, we don’t think anyone can adequately prepare for what’s ahead.
We’ve got some info on Scandal‘s new season that’s all about our fearless leader: the POTUS. And we just spoke to Jaime King who spilled some Hart of Dixie details. All that, plus scoop on The Mindy Project, The League, Two and a Half Men and more in today’s Spoiler Chat:
Shawn D.: Wake me up when September ends…because it means Scandal is back! Got any scoop on the new season to help make the wait more bearable?
You know what everyone seems to be forgetting about in the midst of all craziness due to the reveals of Olivia’s father and the press finding out about her affair with Fitz? The fact that Fitz is still going to be running for reelection in season three! Of course, that isn’t such an easy task now that his affair has not only been outed, but confirmed. And yes, you can expect to see his opponents have a field day with the scandal. Well, not a field trip, more like a debate where the issue comes up. Awkward!
Trista: Bluebell me! I want to know what’s coming up for Hart of Dixie in season three.
What a coincidence! We just hung up the phone with Bluebell’s most sassy resident, the wonderful Jaime King, and she says that season three is going to really shake things up for our ladies in the love department. “I’m really excited for Hart of Dixie fans because we have a lot of new developments with the characters.” King continues, “And we have great new guest stars! Robert Buckley, and Josh Cooke are really awesome actors that are coming on to play love interests and to throw some curve balls for Zoe and Lemon.” Looks like there’s a lot more man-candy moving to Bluebell! Are you as excited as we are? Answer: No. No you’re not.
Jackie C.: Scoop on New Girl or Mindy Project….or both!
Don’t be greedy, we’ll just give you some Mindy Project scoop. It’s a pretty standard rule that there shall not any horsing around on planes, because TSA has no patience for that nonsense. Too bad Mindy doesn’t care about that rule and will find herself in hot water after flight attendants find her “threatening”. We’re talking the type of hot water that puts you in handcuffs. Plus, Mindy-Danny shippers will be bummed to know that he will get asked out by a really hot woman quicker than you can say “gyno” in that same episode.
Drew: You guys never give us any scoop on The Middle. What’s a guy got to do to get some spoilers on TV’s funniest comedy?!
Dinner would be nice. Maybe flowers? We jest, we jest. About the flowers anyway. But let’s talk scoop, shall we? The ABC comedy’s milestone 100th episode is coming up and the episode will appropriately be titled “The 100th.” And what do you know, Orson is always celebrating its centennial with a big parade, complete with a John Mellencamp tribute artist and town slogan contest!
Jenner: Thanks for the Revolution scoop in Spoiler Chat! Might I trouble you for s’more?
Who has s’mores? Oh, you mean “some more” scoop. Don’t get us excited with talk of chocolate goodness and then take it away. Jerk. Anyway, Revolution is looking to add a new ally to the team around episode seven, and this character is definitely around for the long haul. This new guy will be smooth-talking, likeable and an all-around good guy. He’ll probably rub someone the wrong way, but you don’t want to go to blows with him. The new dude will be in shape and ready and willing to throw a punch or two.
Aron: Please tell me we’ll be seeing some girl on girl action on Two and a Half Men. I love Amber Tamblyn!
We’d call you creepy, but we bet the rest of America is thinking the same thing. We do know that there will be an episode involving Amber’s character and three of her girlfriends going out partying. Whether that will lead into a more-than-friends situation is not quite clear, but at the very least we’ll see a drunk girl fall down?
Ashton: The League just added season four on Netflix, and I burned through half of the season. Gotta know if the beautiful Kristin Cavallari will be in season five?
As a matter of fact, Mark Duplass just told us that her husband Jay Cutler will be popping up in the new season, but his lovely wife probably will not be joining him. Unless there’s another breast milk debacle on the horizon. Isn’t the Chicago Bears quarterback what you really want when you watch this show? No? Well, count on other NFL stars to appear as well. Hint: a Defensive MVP and a kicker will be in the premier episode.
Shania: I know you guys love Workaholics as much as I do, so what do you got on the new season?
Can you imagine hiring one of the guys to entertain at a child’s birthday party? It will happen in episode five of the new season, and we’re both excited and terrified to see how it goes.
Annie Ilonzeh has landed a potentially recurring role on the CW saga, TVGuide.com reports, playing a high school friend of Catherine’s who is now a news reporter tracking a beastly scent.
Blair Redford, meanwhile, will guest-star in an episode as an Army buddy of Vincent’s who becomes “a terrifying opponent and a dangerous threat” to the beast.
Fun fact: Both Ilonzeh and Redford recurred last season on Switched at Birth, albeit separately.
Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…
• True Detectives, HBO’s new right-episode crime drama starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, is slated to bow in January 2014. A full-length trailer for the series — which centers on two detectives whose lives collide during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer — will debut this Sunday ahead of the Boardwalk Empire premiere.
• It’s official: Mistresses Alyssa Milano will host Project Runway All Stars‘ third season, launching Oct. 24.
• Starz’s new Ron Moore-helmed series Outlander has added Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) and Gary Lewis (Gangs of New York). The project follows a married combat nurse from 1945 who is swept back in time to 1743 and forced to marry another man (played by UK actor Sam Heughan).
• Animal Planet has renewed My Cat From Hell for a 16-episode fifth season, to bow in 2014.
Question: I love the chemistry between Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira on The Walking Dead, but I do not want to see Rick and Michonne get romantically involved. That would be a jump-the-shark moment for sure. Please tell me the show isn’t going there. —Jeremy
Ausiello: Series creator Robert Kirkman says he “wouldn’t necessarily rule a romance out,” but he reminds us that Rick’s “wife did just die in a horrible way, so I don’t think any kind of romance is really on his radar just yet.” Kirkman does, however, concede that the two are growing closer. “They are definitely forming a friendship,” he acknowledges. “They have a very large mutual respect for each other because of their capabilities and their ability to trust one another, and I think that’s a lot of what was growing in the [Season 3] episode where they both went off on a run together.”
Question: Begging you for any scraps of New Girl spoilers. Fat Schmidt, Nick and Jess, a possible Winston/Cece arc — I will take anything! —Sarah
Ausiello: Schmidt will find himself somewhat mojo-challenged in Season 3. “He’s going to slide a little bit and not be so on top of his game,” reveals exec producer Dave Finkel. Adds fellow EP Brett Baer: “He’s definitely on a journey to figure himself out this season. He’s going to be forced to confront himself, and get in touch with the little guy inside of him.” To that end, viewers will likely meet “some of his family members in the second half of the season,” Baer confirms. “You’ll get a vision of what his childhood and homelife were like growing up, the way we did with Nick last year.”
Question: Does The Big Bang Theory have any plans to bring back Lucy? I really liked her with Raj and was surprised the show split them up in the finale. —Missi
Ausiello: Exec producer Steve Molaro says “the door was intentionally left wide open” for Kate Micucci to return as Raj’s ex, noting, “Raj said at the end of Season 6, ‘I pushed it too hard. I need to give her some space.’ And he’s still heartbroken about Lucy and sort of picking up the pieces and trying to move forward… But I love those characters together.”
Question: I am dying to know if Nashville is losing either Rayna or Deacon due to the crash! Please, can we at least have a tidbit of a hint? —Anna
Ausiello: From what executive producer Dee Johnson tells TVLine, it sounds like the crash puts a very definite end to Deacon’s season-finale bender. “God, if this doesn’t wake you up, I don’t know what would,” she says. “That doesn’t mean he comes out of it singing about sunshine and lollipops, but he definitely feels for what happened and takes responsibility for what happened.”
Question: With the premiere less than two weeks away, what else can you tease on the Bones front? —Rachel
Ausiello: As with the Castle premiere, you’ll be hanging on the next words when Brennan says to her almost-fiancé, “I have to tell you something…”
Question: Thanks for that Bones preview! Do you have any more teases on Booth and Brennan? —Rachel
Ausiello: Booth’s priest-turned-barkeep pal (played by Mather Zickel) will serve as “somewhat of a touchstone this season for secrets,” offers exec producer Stephen Nathan, who reveals that both Booth and Brennan will seek his counsel as they attempt to resolve their seemingly insurmountable relationship issues. “He’s a neutral party that Booth can go to and talk freely,” notes the EP. “And when Brennan finds out about him, she feels she can talk freely with him as well.” Holy epiphany, Batman: This dude’s so going to end up officiating the B&B nups later this season! You know I’m right! What do I win if I’m right?!
Question: How long into Grimm‘s new season will it take for the crew to settle the zombie problem and save Nick? —Ole
Ausiello: You remember how Rosalee said she could only cure the zombie problem when the afflicted person was in the rage stage, right? Well, Nick gets there quickly – within the first two episodes of Season 3, creators David Greenwalt and James Kouf say. On a scale where “kitten” is 1 and “Bengal tiger” is 10, “He’s about an 11,” Kouf adds – and it leaves a mark. By the time the credits roll on the season’s second hour, Monroe and everyone will have Nick back – “but there’s kind of residual damage,” the EP says.
Question: Any new details on Glee‘s Finn tribute? Maybe something about song selection? —Jen
Ausiello: Although I don’t have any confirmation of this, rumor has it an iconic track from Glee‘s Season 1 setlist will be revived for the Oct. 10 farewell. Additionally, I hear Santana is featured somewhat prominently in the special episode, the script of which is garnering rave reviews.
Question: OK, I’ll bite: What happens at the start of Sons of Anarchy Season 6 Episode 3 that’s so shocking it made your hair stand on end? —Julie
Ausiello: All I’ll say is it involves Donal Logue’s vengeance-seeking lawman. (And for the record, the SOA twist didn’t do that to my hair. The six-hour Labor Day nap I took did.)
Question: Hey! Will we be seeing Anna Camp on The Mindy Project at all this season? – Billie
Ausiello: Hey! It’s not looking great for any of Mindy’s girls this season, mostly because rom-coms rely a lot heavier on the “rom” than the “com.” (After all, it’s called When Harry Met Sally, not When Sally and Marie Hang Out and Marie Has That Funny Scene With the Folded-Down Index Cards.) “There are not a lot of plans to see Mindy’s girlfriends,” says EP Jack Burditt. “But I also think we may touch upon the fact that she doesn’t spend a lot of time with her girlfriends, either.”
Question: Any Mindy Project scoop? What kind of time jump are we looking at since the last season? Thanks! -—Mary Kate
Ausiello: Not a huge one – but enough time for [Spoiler] and [Spoiler] to have moved to the [spoiler]s.
Question: I recently became addicted to 2 Broke Girls. Any scoop on Season 3, particularly involving Nick Zano and/or Ryan Hansen returning to woo my favorite broke girls again? –Nikki
Ausiello: When we asked co-creator Michael Patrick King that very question, he said both of the broke girls’ former guys were likely gone for good – or, at least, for the foreseeable future. “My whole thing is, [men] come in and they go,” he said. “At 25, they’re in, they’re out. They’re a memory. You maybe see them. Maybe you don’t.” As for the hot new pastry chef who’ll show up this season, King notes, “At this point, we’re hoping for a different guy who can bring out different things in Max than Johnny did.”
Question: Camp is my favorite summer show! Any news on if it will be back next summer? —Kristen
Ausiello: I’m afraid I have bad news for you, Kristen. According to my spies at A.C. Nielsen, you are the only person still watching the show. So… no. It won’t be back next summer.
Question: I will happily take a Middle scoop off your hands, Aus. —Jordan.
Ausiello: ABC’s stealth hit will celebrate its 100th episode this fall with — what else — a parade, celebrating the Orsontennial and featuring no less than the fourth-best John Cougar Mellencamp impersonator in all of Indiana.
Question: Can you give me some scoop about The Good Wife? —Ilone
Ausiello: I can. And I will. The law offices of Florrick, Agos and Assoc. will share little in common with Lockhart Garner’s tony digs. “We want to suggest more of a start-up quality to it,” exec producer Robert King says of Alicia and Cary’s fledgeling firm. “Lockhart Gardner has a very polished look. [Florrick, Agos and Assoc] may not be up to the financial standards of Lockhart Gardner’s architecture.”
Question: Is it too early to ask for Pretty Little Liars Season 4B scoop? —Cora
Ausiello: “We will pay off” that top-secret meeting between Mona and Shana in Liars‘ summer finale, executive producer Oliver Goldstick assures. “I’ve always said, Mona is a viscous little dumpling and no one should forget who she was in Seasons 1 and 2 — even if she has ‘redeemed’ herself or ‘absolved’ herself of some of those horrible deeds. She was still capable of them, and that’s important to remember.”
That’s a wrap! Please send questions, comments, and anonymous tips to email@example.com. (Additional reporting by Kim Roots and Meg Masters)
I’ll take any Bones scoop you have! — Ben
ADAM: Although man-of-faith Booth seeks out his former priest Aldo for guidance about how to proceed with Brennan after his lie about the engagement, it’s what the padre tells Brennan that ends up making all the difference in repairing that relationship. And even though Aldo’s religious beliefs are now more in line with those of woman-of-science Brennan, look for Bones to take a leap of faith. And speaking of Booth’s old friends: Freddie Prinze Jr.’s CIA agent doesn’t get much to do in the premiere, but he does make Booth an enticing offer that he’ll likely wrestle with all season long.
Did you get any Calzona scoop when you were on the Grey’s Anatomy set? — Janna
NATALIE: Callie will find comfort in what longtime fans would consider surprising places as she turns to fellow board members Meredith and Cristina. “They have more things in common than they used to, specifically Meredith and Callie, now they’re both mothers, so on that level, Meredith feels for Callie and what she’s going through,” Sara Ramirez says. “There is a moment where Callie confides in Meredith early on. Cristina and Meredith are two people that Callie is close to during this and interestingly enough, feels betrayed by one of them at one point.” Ruh-roh.
I know you’ve seen the Castle premiere, so spill! — Hannah
ADAM: The season tends to some necessary housekeeping regarding Beckett’s two decisions right out of the gate, but after that the show wastes no time ratcheting up the action. In fact, before the premiere is over, one major character gets shot and another is in mortal peril. Although one of those scenarios is a fake-out, the other is alarmingly real.
Any scoop on Stefan and Elena on Vampire Diaries? I’m still holding out hope for them! — Kendrick
NATALIE: I guess it’s a good thing that my colleague Robyn Ross was on set this week to ask Nina Dobrev that question! She says that Elena’s connection to Stefan will clue her in to the fact that something is not right with him (aka he’s drowning at the bottom of the river.) “She has this weird feeling something is going on. It’s this cosmic connection you have with someone that you’ve spent so much time with and I don’t know if that will go away,” Dobrev says. “She knows she’s in love with Damon, but she still cares for Stefan and wants to make sure he’s OK … and when she finds out what he’s been through, it’s not easy for her.”
How will Hank return on Parenthood? — Karen
ADAM: It’s still unclear what turns Hank and Sarah’s relationship will take this upcoming season, but look for Hank to bond with Max and encourage the young Braverman’s growing interest in photography. Unfortunately, Max gets a bit overzealous taking pictures for the school yearbook, which may land him, and subsequently Adam and Kristina, in hot water with the principal.
Anything you can reveal about Once Upon a Time with the premiere getting closer each day? — Steph, via Twitter
NATALIE: Emma will take a surprising leadership role when the ragtag group of friends and foes heads to Neverland. “She’s surrounded by people who have been at each other’s throats for different reasons and are continuing to be,” Jennifer Morrison says. “But we are not going to be able to save Henry unless we all come together, so she has to be the voice of reason to overcome those differences. It’s going to leave room for new alliances that we don’t expect and also new conflicts.”
Any scoop on the new season of Chicago Fire? — Jeremy
ADAM: Get ready to meet a new woman in Severide’s life! And no, we’re not talking about a new love interest. Instead, Severide suspects this woman, a 19-year-old named Katie, is his father’s mistress. So he’ll certainly be surprised when he learns that Katie is actually … Benny’s daughter and Severide’s sister!
Do you have any scoop on Parks and Recreation? —Lance
NATALIE: Before Rashida Jones leaves Parks, Ann will be pregnant. “Yes. I’m definitely going to grow on the show,” Jones tells me, noting that with Diane also pregnant, it may be a “race to the pregnancy finish line.” More good news? Jones says that there’s a good chance that she’ll return to the NBC comedy after her mid-season exit. “Ann is not going to be far and Rashida’s not going to be far,” she says. “Ann loves Leslie too much and Rashida loves Parks and Amy too much.”
What can you tell me about Adam Pally’s character on The Mindy Project? — Kris
ADAM: Pally’s character, Peter, will quickly make himself a part of the team at Mindy’s practice — maybe a little too quickly. When Jeremy’s boisterous father, Alfred, comes to visit, he and Peter hit it off — so much so that Alfred invites Peter to dinner, much to Jeremy’s chagrin. But while Alfred and Peter click, Alfred spends most of his time criticizing Jeremy. Let’s just say that Jeremy might consider a trip to the gym after this visit.
What can you tell us about Sherlock’s reunion with his brother Mycroft on Elementary? — Derek
NATALIE: It won’t be pleasant, especially when Joan and Mycroft (Rhys Ifans) decide to exchange notes on Sherlock. “Sherlock is expecting to go to London and never even mention to his brother that he’s there,” executive producer Rob Doherty says. “Sherlock has to confess to Joan that he has a brother. It’s news to her. We find out there’s some bad blood between the Holmes boys and they have not spoken in several years.”
Got any teases about the new season of Boardwalk Empire? — Kyle
ADAM: Don’t expect another Gyp Rosetti to challenge Nucky. In fact, Nucky’s new rival, Jeffrey Wright’s Dr. Valentin Narcisse, is much more intellectual and patient than the hot-headed Gyp. (Narcisse, however, will prove to be just as deadly.) But perhaps the real threat to Nucky is Warren Knox (Brian Geraghty), a rookie agent at the newly formed Bureau of Investigation who’s trying to make his name by linking Nucky to other gangsters across the country. He’ll do so by turning one of Nucky’s closest allies against him — with disastrous, heartbreaking results.
I’m still rooting for Oliver and Laurel on Arrow. — Kim
NATALIE: Eagle-eyed viewers may have spotted the duo kissing in the Comic-Con trailer, which executive producer Marc Guggenheim reveals will happen at Tommy’s grave site. (Ouch!) “They are in love with each other and they will probably always be in love with each other and that has to influence every moment that these two characters share for the life of the series,” he says. Still, there is good news for Olicity fans: “The relationship between Oliver and Felicity over the course of Season 2 will evolve and deepen,” he hints.
Natalie’s Mega Rave: If you’re not watching American Ninja Warrior, you’re missing out on one of the most high-flying, exciting and surprisingly heartwarming competitions on TV right now. It’s a shame that Flip Rodriguez went out this week, but Brent Steffensen could legit become the first American Ninja Warrior. It’s history in the making!
Adam’s Mini Rant: I’m dumbfounded by the decision to have Randy Jackson replace (actually useful) Jimmy Iovine as American Idol‘s in-house mentor. Is he Fox’s Jay Leno?
Midweek slump? We’ve got just the cure for your Wednesday woes!
That’s right, we’re serving up a steaming cup o’ scoop for you this morning, with spoilers on a new pairing Homeland fans can expect to see in season three, two newbies Revenge viewers will be meeting and the return of a Teen Wolf baddie! Plus, we’ve also got insider info on the new season of Revolution, Pretty Little Liars, Cougar Town and more…
Meghan: Even though I didn’t love season two, I have to admit I am really, really excited about the upcoming season of Revenge. Any scoop to share?
Prepare to meet two newbies when your Hamptons vacation returns later this month. In episode six, you’ll be introduced to a new recurring character, supermarket worker Jenny, a no-nonsense spitfire, who has a strong moral center and fight in her. Also making her Hamptons debut is Morgan Holt, an attractive and corrupt real estate agent, who is in cahoots with Conrad. And we mean in cahoots in possibly more way than one…if you catch our drift. Seems things are still as scandalous as ever for the Graysons and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Nicholas A.: Revolution scoop, anything you got.
We recently spoke to Billy Burke about season two, and how Nora’s death will impact Miles and the team. “He is going to carry it with him for a while,” he told us. “As actors I will say losing Nora was a big blow–losing Daniella and Danny, who played Graham were all big blows for us, but the nature of the show is that people have to die. Still, for us it truly was like losing family.” He also revealed that Neville may not remain a villain for long. ” I don’t think that Neville is all bad, and I think he at one time, too, started outwith good intentions and probably wanted to do what was right for the greater good, like a lot of these characters have,” Burke said. “But daily they are forced to do stuff that they don’t want to do but have to, and it changes them.”
Sasha: I’m OK with Brody not being in the first few episodes of Homeland because I’m a Quinn-Carrie shipper. Please tell me they have some good stuff in the premiere!!
Nope, Carrie’s heart, for now, belongs to Brody. She’s too preoccupied with protecting him and dealing with Saul to bat her eyelashes at Quinn. And worse news for Quinn-Carrie fans: there might be romance brewing with a new person on the team and Quinn. It’s too early to tell, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Homeland went there with the two of them.
Ash: Do you know if Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga will play love interests on American Horror Story this year? I loved them in season one together.
We’re betting they will definitely have a relationship of some kind, but we think Evan’s character will be involved with his real-life girlfriend Emma Roberts‘ character. Maybe a love triangle is brewing? We wouldn’t be surprised, given this creepy three-way kiss on the AHS poster.
Come on now, any true Teen Wolf fan knows a villain never really dies on the MTV hit. Just look at Peter Hale, who seemingly died in season one only to return to big bad form in the season 3A finale. “We like Peter a lot and we especially like Ian Bohen, but it’s hard. You want to have villains in your show, but you want to have believable ends to those villains as well, but sometimes they’re just too good,” Jeff Davis explains of having a hard time saying goodbye to the show’s villains. “We’re talking about, like, ‘How can we bring Jennifer back?’ the other day on set.” And for the record, he wouldn’t confirm her death. Take that as you will…
Angela: Please tell me that you have more Pretty Little Liars scoop! I don’t want to have to wait until January, I need answers now!
Well, we want answers too! So we recently chatted with the original “A,” the lovely Janel Parrish, and the PLL star says that things are going to get even more twisted when season four returns in 2014. “It’s just going to get crazier and crazier, as the pieces of the puzzle start coming together. “A” is going to be even more of a mastermind than anybody ever imagined so yeah, it’s going to get crazier.” Plus, our former insane asylum sweetheart is going to be getting a new boyfriend! Parrish reveals, “Mona finally gets a love interest. I think she deserves one and it’s kind of a shocking one so I think fans will love it.” Who do you think will be wooing Mona next year? Our money is on Lucas!
Alana: Just watched every episode of Mike & Molly and now I’m a fan. Do you have any info from the new season?
Molly will end up in a coffin. Wait! Don’t panic. She does find herself laying in a coffin, but she’s alive and just joking around in a funeral home. You know, as one does. Turns out that Mike and Molly will enjoy some substances of the…recreational variety and won’t be able to stop giggling during their funeral home adventure. And since it’s television, of course Molly will scare the living daylights out of a familyjust trying to pick out a coffin for a deceased loved one.
Lucia: Penny Can! Oops, I mean Cougar Town!
Penny Can! Oops, we mean here’s some scoop for you to get absolutely giddy over: Bobby is becoming a grandfather! OK, before you break out about Travis becoming a father and starting a family with Laurie (Crazier things have happened, people!), we should mention that Bobby isn’t technically the biological grandfather as it’s his dog that is welcoming some new puppies. Too bad another man is trying to sell Bobby’s grandpups, so Ellie comes to the rescue. Huzzah!
