Through 15 seasons, Supernatural has been more than just a television show. To its fans, it’s also been a community… and an obsession! “Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles told us he’s heard hundreds — if not thousands — of stories from fans who have bonded with fellow fans of the show, and he’s elated that so many of those friendships will be around, even after the show’s series finale.

Through seven seasons’ worth of twists and turns, Homeland has been lauded for the quality of its writing. There’s no reason to believe that will change in its final season As the show’s star — and also a producer — Claire Danes certainly has a vested interest in the stories and scripts. Looking back through the earlier seasons, she’s amazed by the way the writers took her character and expanded her story in unexpected new directions.

The final season of Homeland will premiere February 9 on Showtime.
On the CBS series FBI, Missy Peregrym and Zeeko Zaki star as a pair of agents partnered up to solve some of the Bureau’s biggest cases. Of course, the show takes a lot of liberties with the truth about FBI investigations in order to crank up the drama. But one thing the show’s stars say is absolutely real is that when the FBI comes calling, it’s not because something good’s going on.

To say This Is Us is a unique show is an understatement. How many other shows have killed off one of their main characters, only to have him return week after week? In one way, that’s been a blessing for Milo Ventimiglia, because he’s only had to play about 20 years or so of Jack Pearson’s life. Poor Mandy Moore has spent hours a day in the makeup chair, because she’s been playing Rebecca Pearson across at least seven decades! When we spoke to Moore, she admitted that This Is Us has been a lot more than she’d bargained for — but has also been more rewarding than she could have imagined.

Based on an NFL player’s real story, All American is a show about a football star from South Central L.A. who faces all kinds of adjustments and challenges after he transfers to a school in Beverly Hills. Taking the role of a football star was certainly a challenge for Daniel Ezra. He’s from the UK, where “football” refers to soccer. Now that he’s had a chance to learn more about the game, how does Ezra feel about American Football? (Click on the media bar below to hear Daniel Ezra)
Sure, there’s plenty of talent on The Voice, but one of the things that keeps viewers tuning in week after week is the competition — and the chemistry — between the show’s coaches. And while there have been plenty of mentions (and jokes) made about the bromance between Blake Shelton and former coach Adam Levine, now Shelton’s on the show with his real-life romantic partner, Gwen Stefani. So maybe Stefani’s a little bit biased, but when we asked which of her fellow coaches was her favorite, she (not surprisingly) raved about Shelton.

The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
