ONCE UPON A TIME
PRE-FINALE EPISODES | ABC’s fantastical drama opens its sweeps run April 27, with an episode that “answers an enormous amount of questions,” cocreator Eddy Kitsis promises. Among them: Who cast the new curse and why? And what else is Hook hiding about his remembered year? And though the Storybrooke heroes seem to have the Wicked Witch’s time-traveling agenda figured out, “There’s an additional surprise element to what’s coming,” says cocreator Adam Horowitz. “It becomes more than it appeared at first blush.” On May 4, the episode “Kansas” serves up more Oz-based mythology (and iconography) as well as introduces us to the show’s take on Dorothy. All of that, Kitsis says, “will open the door to a new adventure that leads to the two-hour finale.” Exclusive bonus scooplet: Someone you thought you’d seen the last of puts in one more appearance, and soon.
MAY 11 SEASON FINALE (2 HOURS) | The double pump of “Snow Drifts” and “There’s No Place Like Home” is “not just two episodes crammed together in one night,” says Kitsis. “It was written as a two-hour movie, and it will not only complete the arc of this season, but it will absolutely set up next season” - akin to how last May, the gang set course for Neverland. “We’re not getting on a boat this time,” Horowitz quips, “but seeds for Season 4 are planted.” As is a ring on someone’s finger. “There will be a wedding,” Kitsis affirms, adding… well, nothing. (But we tried!)
HBO confirmed this morning that they will co-produce the television adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy.
Though we had shared this tidbit of information with our readers earlier this month, the pay cable channel made the news official today.
In addition, today we’re learning that the mini-series will have three episodes and will begin shooting in South West England this summer.
The show will also be produced by Bronte Film and Television, the production company run by Rowling and her business partner Neil Blair.
do you ever
do you ever just have
that one class
that one freaking class
that just depresses you when you think about it because
oh god you hate it so much
