To everyone who watched last night’s Arrow, I’m sorry. Change is inevitable blah, blah, blah, but can’t some characters just stay around forever and ever? More on the character who left at the very end of today’s recap (so you can remain spoiler-free!), but there’s plenty of other news before you get there. Learn about the Tenth Doctor’s journey to Disney XD, see the trailer for Season 2 of Axe Cop, and find out about Zachary Levi’s new show on Syfy.
Mickey Meets a Time Lord. Disney is showing way more series than your average bubblegum, teenager sort of stuff and cartoons these days. Case in point: They’ve teamed up with BBC to air episodes of Doctor Who featuring the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) on Disney XD–and only the episodes with the Tenth Doctor. Maybe it will bring some new Whovians to the fold? They’ll air Doctor Who beginning on June 13 and go through June 20. [Nerdist]
Heading Underground. Are you ready for a long journey? WGN America’s working on a series about the Underground Railroad. The show will follow slaves who intend to make the whopping 600 mile trip to freedom. I can’t imagine the hardships of making a journey that long in the pre-Civil War era. At all. Underground doesn’t have a premiere date or anything just yet, but they have cast Adina Porter (True Blood, The 100) in the recurring role of Pearly Mae. [Deadline]
Litchfield Forever, Yo. Season 3 of Orange Is the New Black hasn’t even kicked off, but Netflix has already renewed it for Season 4. They know they have to keep the ladies of Litchfield happy. But back to Season 3: please enjoy a new clip in which meal time gets rather intense. [/Film]
All the Heroes. One of the many tremendous things about having The Flash and Arrow on the same network is the crossover potential. It’s just like reading event comic books except you only have to watch a single episode and not buy 20,000 titles (that’s how crossover events feel to me). This week’s The Flash brought Felicity and and Atom to town, and it was So. Much. Fun. Read Joseph’s review of “All Star Team Up.”
From the Pub to TV. Pour a cold one and prepare to flex your trivia skills because Zachary Levi is bringing Geeks Who Drink to Syfy. The trivia show is based on the national and popular bar event and will pit two teams of three geeks against each other every week; each team will have a celebrity captain. The show premieres on July 16. [TVLine]
Tigers vs. Sharks. Doesn’t Tigers Vs. Sharks sound like a title for an upcoming Syfy film? It’s not a movie title though, it’s part of the trailer for Season 2 of Axe Cop. The cartoon based on the comic by Ethan Nicolle and Malachai is part of the Animation Domination High-Def block on FXX and airs every Thursday. It returns tonight! [CBR]
Don’t Clone Yourself. Nobody panic but Season 3 of Orphan Black debuts this Saturday. It’s a show of clones, conspiracies, mysteries, and some insanely talented actors. And! You still have time to catch up. Alicia lets you know everywhere you can watch the first two seasons before Saturday. May the clone be with you (sorry–I’m at Star Wars Celebration and can’t help it). Also, be sure to check out our clone playlists!
Spoiler alert! Stop reading if you’re not caught up on Arrow!
Sidekick Good-bye. Prepare to have some feelings. If you watched “Broken Arrow” last night, you’re probably wondering about Arsenal. He faked his death, and that means Colton Haynes is leaving Arrow. He will appear in one additional episode this season, and a Warner Bros. rep said, “Like all characters that exist in this universe, there will always be the potential for him return moving forward.” I’m in denial.
