I miss when it was all on Netflix, but this is just as good I guess.

Gillian Jacobs joins season four of Girls.

Gillian Jacobs will play a recurring character in the fourth season of Girls, reports TVLine. The publication says Jacobs will first appear in episode five and is apparently playing a character named “Mimi-Rose.” (Fittingly, episode five is also called “Mimi-Rose,” and maybe the show will just be all about Gillian Jacobs doing stuff now?) Jacobs is the first cast member of Community to score a major role in the aftermath of that series’ cancellation, and she’s, oddly enough, the second Community cast member to appear on Girls, after Donald Glover’s two-episode stint back in season two.

Showtime’s Masters of Sex has enlisted a Breaking Bad favorite. Betsy Brandt has boarded the second season of the Showtime drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

AMC is adapting Preacher

The network is teaming with This Is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and Breaking Bad's Sam Catlin to adapt Vertigo's Preacher, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. ’

Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 1990s comic series from DC Comics imprint Vertigo, Preacher revolves around Rev. Jesse Custer, a badass Texas preacher who, after losing his faith, learns that God has left heaven and forsaken his duties. Jesse becomes the only one who is able to track God down and hold him responsible for his abdication. Tulip O’Hare, Jesse’s beer-guzzling vampire ex-girlfriend, accompanies him on his quest for answers. But the story doesn’t end there: The Saint of Killers, an immortal killing machine and Western lone gunman type, is hot on their trail with his sights set on Jesse. (via)

This has potential to be amazing.

The series finale has been set for March 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. A special one-hour live show, Psych After Show, will follow at 10 p.m. ET/PT, featuring a Q&A discussion with series creator Steve Franks and the entire cast taped in front of a studio audience in Los Angeles.

I was a big fan of Psych for the first few seasons but honestly, I’m glad it’s finally ending. 

Between Linda Cardellini and Adam Brody, the rest of season three is going to be pretty great, huh? 

The Weeds and Orange Is the New Black creator is developing a provocative period drama for the premium cable network,The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The untitled Salem period drama explores the circumstances surrounding one of the most compelling chapters in American history, when intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria.

Witches are SO hot again.
