TV GUIDE: RETURNING FALL SHOWS: WHERE WE LEFT OFF


... The Vampire Diaries (The CW)

Premieres: Thursday, Oct. 3 at 8/7c.


Where We Left Off: The gang finally graduated, but that was just the beginning of the action. Bonnie died, Klaus set off for New Orleans, Katherine was force-fed the cure and Stefan was staked by Silas, who was revealed as Stefan's doppelganger.


What's Next: The show will pick up three months later, when just about everyone other than Stefan has had a ball of a summer. "Elena and Damon are a super sexy fun couple… [but] poor Stefan has been drowning and dying and coming back to life," new showrunner Caroline Dries says. As for Silas 2.0, he'll be scary yet charismatic and it'll take a few episodes for the group to realize he's masquerading as Stefan.

TV GUIDE: RETURNING FALL SHOWS: WHERE WE LEFT OFF


... Supernatural (The CW)

Premieres: Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c


Where We Left Off: Sam and Dean chose each other over closing the gates of Hell, leaving Crowley's exorcism unfinished and Sam's health in limbo. Metatron manipulated Castiel into helping him expel all other angels from Heaven, sending them crashing to Earth and leaving poor Cas as a human.


What's Next: Executive producer Jeremy Carver describes the angel-filled world as "a free-for-all," but warns that all the angels will come to Earth with different agendas. Sam and Dean will also need each other more than ever, but a secret Dean keeps from Sam in the premiere will create yet another riff in the bromance. Meanwhile, Crowley will struggle with the consequences of the abandoned trials, while Castiel adjusts to humanity. (Misha Collins says that while Castiel might not find his first love, he will experience lust — and an outfit change! ) A few special episodes planned include a Dr. Doolittle episode, which finds Dean with the ability to talk to animals, and a twist on The Wizard of Oz, which will feature the return of Felicia Day's Charlie.

COLLIDER: Anson Mount Talks HELL ON WHEELS Season 3, Shooting by Himself in a Blizzard, and Return of the Swede

by Christina Radish
August 17, 2913

Season 3 of the AMC drama series Hell on Wheels finds Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) leaving his vengeance-seeking ways behind and investing in the new American landscape. It is now 1867, the third year of the building of the transcontinental railroad, and Bohannon must not only contend with racism, greed and murder, as he leads the Union Pacific in its race across the country against the Central Pacific, but he now also has his former employer, Thomas “Doc” Durant (Colm Meaney), actively working to defeat him.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, I sat down with actor Anson Mount, who is always insightful about his character and the show, to talk about how different things feel in Season 3, what it was like to shoot by himself in a blizzard, what’s motivating Cullen Bohannon now, what it’s like to be at odds with Durant this season, what role the Mormons will play, Cullen’s relationship with women, the return of The Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl), and how no one can be trusted in Hell on Wheels...

 photo anson_mount5_zps28f8fe1b.jpg

... Collider: Where are things headed with Cullen and The Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl)?

Anson Mount: "He has his own interesting little arc this season. We have to be careful about how to introduce that character back in because it can easily become a show about a cat and mouse chase. We’re not Tom and Jerry. So, the writers have been very smart about how to bring him back in, this season. He comes back in Episode 3."

Collider: Doesn’t there have to be some big confrontation, at some point?

Anson Mount: "Yeah. He’s so good, isn’t he? He’s a lovely guy..."

... Question: Not much has been written or said about A&E's Longmire, which I think is a spectacular program because it is so very different. Is this going to be one of those shows that will be canceled this second season before the viewing public has a chance to watch? It seems like some of the better and more diverse programs are relegated to a minor network. What are your views and do you have any information on a third season? — Hank


Matt Roush: It's probably too early for a renewal just yet — the season isn't over until next Monday (Aug. 26) — but I get no sense this show is in any danger. It doesn't generate all that much buzz, it's true, and I imagine it skews a bit older than some of the flashier procedurals, but Longmire has been one of my favorite summer surprises the last two years, and I hope that it's in for a long run. I enjoy the way the stories take advantage of the Western setting and temperament, and Robert Taylor is a model of taciturn strength and sorrow as the appealing leading man. If anyone's missing those Jesse Stone movies on CBS, Longmire has the same attributes of wry melancholy, quiet suspense and intelligence, only trading in a baseball cap for a Stetson...


Longmire season two airs Monday at 10/9C on A&E TV. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE EPISODE TRAILER FOR 'A GOOD DEATH IS HARD TO FIND,' AIRING AUGUST 19, 2013.

Premieres: Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c


Where We Left Off: As various parties searched for the Machine, Finch's creation showed surprising powers of self-preservation by moving itself to an unknown location. Reese and Shaw rescued Finch from Root, who despite being placed in an asylum, was still in contact with the Machine. While facing an internal affairs investigation, Carter helped criminal mastermind Elias escape custody after learning of another cop's plans to assassinate him.


What's Next: Carter remains on a collision course with HR after being demoted, but she may not be able to rely on Reese and Finch, whose operation is threatened by the Machine's newfound self-governance. "We've had a lot of people who had plans for the Machine the past two seasons," executive producer Jonathan Nolan says. "This season, the question is: What are the machine's plans for us?" But don't worry, the Machine will still give Reese and Finch (and new partner Shaw) numbers each week, even if Finch is no longer calling the shots. "As its creator, Finch has an understanding of what the Machine may be capable of, but he's not entirely in control of this thing," executive producer Greg Plageman teases. "It's clearly a growing organism that is evolving, perhaps beyond the scale of his understanding."

Where We Left Off: Sam and his wife Michelle went undercover in Sidorov's gang, as Callen reluctantly called on the Chameleon to help intercept Sidorov's stolen nuclear weapons. When the Chameleon revealed Sam's true identity to Sidorov, Sam and Deeks were tortured in an attempt to learn Michelle's true identity. Oh, and Kensi and Deeks kissed!


What's Next: Buckle up! Executive producer Shane Brennan says the resolution to the cliff-hanger "will have the greatest consequence of any story we've told." In particular, the traumatic events of the finale will linger with Deeks for much of the season, which may prevent him from building his kiss with Kensi into something more. Callen must also rectify his mistake with the Chameleon. In truth, everyone on the team is pretty shaken, which prompts a major development. "This season, someone will leave the team," Brennan teases.

Premieres: Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 8/7c


Where We Left Off: As the Department of Defense's investigation into Gibbs reached a fever pitch, Tony, Ziva and McGee took responsibility for the team's questionable actions and turned in their badges. A flash-forward in the episode's final moments showed Gibbs aiming his sniper rifle at… FBI Agent Fornell!


What's Next: Following Cote de Pablo's decision to leave the show, Season 11's two-part opener will say goodbye to Ziva David. When Colin Hanks' character returns to threaten Gibbs, a team reunion is in order. "Ziva is out in the ether and Tony has to go off and find her," executive producer Gary Glasberg says. "He wants to bring her back, but he just can't make it happen. The second episode is really all about Tony and Ziva, and, I hope, delivers all the things the Tiva fans are going to want." Meanwhile, don't look for payoff to that flash-forward until the end of the second episode, though something tells us it's related to a new season-long adversary Glasberg says will be hinted at very early. Plus: Palmer's having a baby, and McGee has a new girlfriend! (Look out, Abby!)
