How are you doing, Walking Dead fans? Social media was practically exploding with exclamation points over the ending of the finale last night, but it will be okay. Just distract yourself by reading today’s TV-Cap! We have a review of the finale, a fun Orphan Black video, news about It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and some fun Game of Thrones skits from Saturday Night Live.
That Happened. The sixth season of The Walking Dead came to a close, and the ending was… something else? It introduced Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan and he killed someone, but the victim is a mystery. Yes, they left the identity of the dead as a cliffhanger to be resolved in season seven. Read Joseph’s full review of the “Last Day on Earth.”
Gore and Grit. AMC has released a new teaser for their adaptation of the comic Preacher, and though it’s only 20 seconds, it gives a glimpse of a world that looks like it was ripped from the pages of the comic. They might just go far enough and be faithful to the brutal tone of the source material. Preacher premieres on May 22. [Nerdist]
More Crabbiness! FXX is keeping the fires burning for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia–or should I say they’re keeping the clouds away? They’ve renewed the comedy for seasons 13 and 14. And no, season 12 hasn’t even premiered yet. Whew. [Nerdist]
Cool Story, Carl. I know I can’t be the only one who remembers Carl Winslow. Reginald VelJohnson played the character on Family Matters, a sitcom that used to air in tandem with Boy Meets World during ABC’s TGIF. It’s all coming full circle because VelJohnson will make a guest appearance on Girl Meets World. He’s not playing Carl, but he is playing a cop. [TVLine]
From Dorne to the MCU. Marvel’s Iron Fist has cast Colleen Wing — she’ll be played by Jessica Henwick. You might know her from the small, indie productions Game of Thrones and The Force Awakens. [Nerdist]
Pick a Parody. Peter Dinklage hosted the most recent Saturday Night Live, and unsurprisingly, the sketches were focused on Westeros. There’s even a behind-the-scenes Game of Thrones preview with Dinklage and “Emilia Clarke.” All I’m gonna say is: dragons! See more of the skits here at Nerdist.
Oh Boy. I know you’ve been losing sleep wondering about the fourth installment of Syfy’s made for television series Sharknado. You can finally rest because they’ve announced the title of Sharknado 4 and the premiere date. Sharknado: The 4th Awakens (yeah, we see what you did there) will air on July 31. [Comic Book Resources]
Four Little Words. In the years since Gilmore Girls ended, Amy Sherman-Palladino has said she planned to end the series with four words. She knew what they would be for a long time, but she didn’t get to see that through since she wasn’t part of the final season. She’ll get her chance with the Netflix revival, though. Yanic Truesdale told Us Weekly fans will learn the four words at the end and said they make sense. [Variety]
Some Smiles. Need a break from your Monday? Watch the cast of Orphan Black appear on a panel along with series co-creators at 92Y. They give some vague teases about what’s ahead, but mostly, they get silly and even more endearing–I didn’t know that was possible. [Nerdist]
Review Time. Cartoons are hip, don’t you know? We have the details on the latest episode of the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series and a review of Cartoon Network’s brand new Powerpuff Girls. What are your thoughts on the reboot?
Warning: Spoilers follow for The 100.
Another Episode, Another Death. No character is safe in The 100. It’s like Game of Thrones in that anyone could bite it at any time. The most recent episode of The CW sci-fi series saw the execution of fan favorite Lincoln. Given that the actor, Ricky Whittle, is starring in the Starz adaptation of American Gods, it was probably only a matter of time but still. Relive your Lincoln feelings with this round-up of his best moments.
Another warning: Spoilers are below for Sleepy Hollow.
Goodbye. Sleepy Hollow lost a character on Friday. Series regular and Joe Corbin (Zach Appelman) was killed off at the end of the last episode, as he turned back into a wendigo. Yikes. [Deadline]
