From LA Examiner: A&E Orders 'Those Who Kill'; Julie Gonzalo Teases The 'Dallas' Finale; TNT Shifts Summer Schedule; The CW Pulls 'Cult'; Yvonne Strahovski Returns to 'Dexter'; 'Arrow' Photos...

Serial killer dramas really are all the rage today, and LA TV Insider Examiner isn't complaining! This particular trend, after all, is inspiring networks to think outside of the box when they pick up dramatic series-- looking for ones with deep character drama, rooted in a serialized psychological nature. Theoretically, that should make for a smarter television landscape. And one network out to prove they can really play that game is A&E. This week A&E renewed Bates Motel for a second season, and today they followed up with an announcement of a pick-up for Those Who Kill... [MORE]

"Julie Gonzalo talks Pamela's "revenge-y" move leading up to Dallas' season finale"

Anger and grief can make a person act irrationally and out of character, but on TNT's Dallas, such emotions tend to allow a character to dig deep and do things that expose their truest colors. After John Ross (Josh Henderson) confided to Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) that her father was the man responsible for the methane rig explosion that put her life in danger and killed her unborn babies, she didn't lash out with a violent act toward her father to get her revenge. Instead, she thought longer-term, even if still a bit impetuously, and married John Ross. John Ross probably thought he was controlling the situation; he needed to get his hands on her shares of the company, and what better way to do that than spousal privilege? But Pamela was thinking much more clearly than that ... [MORE]

"TNT changes Summer 2013 premiere dates for Franklin & Bash, more"

We hope you weren't planning any big summer barbecues or other viewing party blow-outs around TNT's Summer 2013 schedule because today the cable network announced some major changes to its premiere dates for four key series. So if you did already make plans, at least it's early enough to change them? ... [MORE]

"Did The CW quietly cancel Cult?"

It took half-way through the first season for The CW's Cult to pick up some momentum and actually dig into the mystery of Steven Rae, the never-seen, never-heard-from executive producer of the show within the show, but unfortunately in today's television, half-way through is too little, too late. The CW has released its primetime schedule through the end of the month, and Cult is nowhere on it... [MORE]

"Yvonne Strahovski to return to Dexter"

After the seventh season of Showtime's Dexter delivered everyone's favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) his first "real" relationship, I found myself wanting it to never end. Sure, the show was never meant to be a relationship drama, and Dexter was never meant to be one-half of a team killer, but he and Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski) were equals in a way no one else had ever come close-- or probably would. All I wanted was for her to find a way to stick around in his life. After all, she was hauled off in handcuffs in season seven, not murdered. Showtime must have felt my pain because they snatched her up for the upcoming eighth season... [MORE] 

"First Look: Deadshot returns and Diggle's in danger on Arrow"

It's hard out here for the Queens! The CW's Arrow has seen everything from kidnappings to drug-fueled car crashes to mysterious disappearances since Oliver (Stephen Amell) returned home and started sprinting around Starling City as a vigilante, but soon, they will have to deal with yet another attack on the family in "Home Invasion." Yes, that's exactly what it sounds like. Someone has the balls to break into the Queen mansion in the next all-new Arrow episode... [MORE]
