Raise your hand if you’ll be at WonderCon in Los Angeles over the weekend! I count at least two of you. If you can’t make the convention, don’t fret. I’ll catch you up on all the television news on Monday. And hey, I happen to have some TV news now, too. What a coincidence! Read today’s TV-Cap to get the premiere date and a trailer for season two of Powers, to see some behind-the-scenes footage of The Flash/Supergirl crossover, to see which villain is returning in Star Wars Rebels, and more.
All for One. Brace yourself. CBS has released a behind-the-scenes look at the Supergirl and The Flash crossover, and it is everything I dreamed it would be. Melissa Benoist (Kara Danvers) and Grant Gustin (Barry Allen) are impossibly charming human beings, and I don’t know if National City/my heart can survive so much cuteness. [Nerdist]
A Couple More Renewals. Fox has given the go ahead for another season each of The Last Man on Earth (season three) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (season four). The fate of a handful of other comedies is still up in the air. [Deadline]
Finn and Logan. Look! It’s Logan and Finn together again! Tanc Sade posted the picture of him and Matt Czuchry on the Gilmore Girls revival set, and I’m having fond memories of the Life and Death Brigade. [TVLine, Image: Tanc Sade]
Spoilage Update. It’s no secret HBO’s Game of Thrones is outpacing George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, but series co-showrunner David Benioff spoke with Entertainment Weekly about how much the show will spoil the books. He said, “So much of what we’re doing diverges from the books at this point. And while there are certain key elements that will be the same, we’re not going to talk so much about that—and I don’t think George is either. People are going to be very surprised when they read the books after the show. They’re quite divergent in so many respects for the remainder of the show.” [Slashfilm]
Ladies in Charge. Entertainment Weekly is celebrating the upcoming season six premiere of Game of Thrones (it’s on April 24) with a series of covers featuring the women of the series. Daenerys, Brienne, and Cersei all go front and center in the newest double-issue of the magazine. See all the covers right this way. [Images: Entertainment Weekly]
Meet Voltron, Again. Netflix is rebooting Voltron in an animated series called Voltron: Legendary Defender. They’ve released a first look image from the upcoming cartoon, and I’d say it looks very Voltron-y (yes, I’m very technical). [Comic Book Resources, Image: Netflix]
So Many Firsts. Starz’s very first movie for television will be airing on May 30, and it’s a doozy. It’s an adaptation of the play The Dresser and stars a couple of guys you’ve maybe heard of named Ian McKellen and Anthony Hopkins. I know, right? It’s the first time they’ve appeared together on screen, and the first time Hopkins has been in a television drama in more than 20 years. McKellen will play Norman, who is the dresser of Hopkins’ “Sir.” [Image: Starz]
Meet the Old Master. There are more than a few things on the table for the season finale of Star Wars Rebels. We have a confrontation between Darth Vader and Ahsoka, a trip to Malachor, and the return of Darth Maul. Yep. The villain (voiced by Sam Witwer) will come back and as you can see in the above clip, he’s making fast friends with Ezra. Gulp. The one-hour season two finale airs on March 30 on Disney XD.

Goodbye, Retro Girl. The second season of Powers will see Walker and Pilgrim investigate who killed Retro Girl. The first trailer previews that drama and the feds coming to take control of the Powers division. New episodes are set to premiere on the PlayStation Network on May 31. [Nerdist]
At a Standstill. Tension is in the air on History’s Vikings, but then again, that seems like the usual state of things. Read Jessica’s recap of “What Might Have Been.”
Warning: A spoiler for The 100 is ahead. Stop reading now if you’re not caught up.
An Apology. The 100 showrunner Jason Rothenberg has started to speak up about the death of Lexa. He did an interview with TV Insider recently, and now, he’s also written a post about the topic on Medium. The post is an apology, actually. Lexa’s death made fans upset for more reasons than her being a beloved character; it fed into the “Bury Your Gays” trope. You can read Rothenberg’s comments here. [TVLine]
What do you think about Darth Maul coming back to the Star Wars universe? Are you ready for the adorableness of The Flash and Supergirl crossover? Talk to me in the comments.
