Insidious: Chapter 3
The Walking Dead
Showrunner Scott Gimple weighed in on the question of Daryl's sexuality, saying:
We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven't revealed," he shares, before insisting, "[But] we're not holding back information on Daryl's sexuality as any sort of big reveal. The fact that there's still a question as to what Daryl's orientation is in Season 5 absolutely speaks to Daryl's character; he is a very guarded, very closed-off individual in a lot of ways. We have been able to see him ever so slowly open up and show the other characters aspect by aspect as to what makes him tick. That's been a very satisfying journey for all of us on the creative side to portray. [And] he's still on that journey
"This is a character who is going to continue to grow closer to the other characters," he continues, "[and] let his guard down, and let them see just who he is, in every way."
Gimple added that it won't come up this season, but that there are plans to introduce a gay male character. When and who is being kept a secret. [ TV Line]
Seth Gilliam talked about the preparation he did to play Father Gabriel Stokes. In addition to binge watching the show, he also tried to read the comics:
I only read the comic book where Father Gabriel was introduced, which I think was episode 61 in the comics. I didn't read anything before that, and I haven't read anything after that. I discovered from reading about the show that often times characters' names and journeys are kind of crisscrossed and mismatched, so I thought if I did read too much I might be giving myself a lot of information that would be useless, or just outright wrong. So I figured, like with everything, I'd just take the script and try to fill him out the best I possibly can.

Once Upon a Time
Fresh off of the end of True Blood, Kristin Bauer van Straten will be returning as Maleficent in Once Upon a Time for a major arc in the second half of season 4. She first appeared in a flashback in season 1, before Maleficent was slain by Emma. We know the first half of season 4 will focus on the Frozen storyline, so does Maleficent's return mean that Sleeping Beauty will be the focus of the second half? [Entertainment Weekly]
The Vampire Diaries
Ian Somerhalder says that season 6 could be the show's last:
It very well could be our last [season]. I think now that there's a finality to it, everyone's really realizing that this is a very important time in our lives. We created some very cool storytelling.
