Returning to Fox next month for its second season, the breakout hit SLEEPY HOLLOW promises to kick up the strange with a whole new cast of supernatural creatures determined to make things uncomfortable for our heroes Ichabod Crane (TOM MISON) and Abbie Mills (NICOLE BEHARIE). In addition to an amped-up Moloch, there will be the introduction of a ghostly version of The Pied Piper and a ‘Frankenstein-like’ creature called The Kindred.
Caught on the red carpet at a recent Television Critics Association press event, SLEEPY HOLLOW stars JOHN NOBLE,NICOLE BEHARIE and TOM MISON shared their thoughts on what fans can expect from the upcoming season.
Fringe returns with fresh episodes on its new Friday night position (9:00 p.m. ET/PT on FOX).
Fridays on FOX has sort of been like the elephant’s graveyard. Remember Firefly or Dollhouse?
Well, the network tells us moving Fringe to the kiss-of-death slot will be great because diehard fans will follow the sci-fi thriller to Fridays. We hope so.
The episodes have been as interesting as ever, albeit confusing at times. And the ratings have slid since its move to Thursday nights. Still, we love the characters particularly Walter Bishop (John Noble), the drug addled scientist with a penchant for red licorice.
And it appears Fringe is jumping back into action with a dramatic episode starring Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), as one of Walter’s musical idols. Tonight’s show is named, ironically, Firefly.
Still, judging from the clip FOX has provided, it looks every bit as quirky as we’ve come to expect from the series. And as one of those enthusiastic sci-fi followers I’ll be making the switch with Fringe.
Click onto the video for a quick scene between John Noble and Christopher Lloyd on Fringe.
Crossing dimensions, alternate universes – that’s right – all that is on tap for season three of the sci-fi series Fringe (Thursdays, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on FOX).
At the end of last season Olivia (Anna Torv) returned to her own dimension, but what the Fringe gang doesn’t know is that she’s not really her, but rather the other Olivia.
Confused? Stand in line. Still it makes for great TV and if you’re a fan you have no trouble keeping score of who is who.
Besides, it’s really about the characters anyway, isn’t it?
At least that’s what series star Joshua Jackson thinks. The actor is convinced that the relationship between father and son, Walter Bishop (John Noble) and Peter Bishop (Jackson) is the core of the show.
