The CW is conjuring up a TV adaptation of The Illusionist, the 2006 film starring Ed Norton, Paul Giamatti and Jessica Biel.
I don't want to start any rumors, particularly the sad kind, but things aren't looking so good for Hart of Dixie, y'all.
Despite CW President Mark Pedowitz's claims over the summer that fans shouldn't read into the show's shortened episode order as an impending cancellation, the evidence is beginning to stack up.
Jane the Virgin
Bless the TV gods for bestowing upon this mostly mediocre fall season the year's most promising new rising star and most instantly adorable new character: Gina Rodriguez as Jane Villanueva, a good girl in an impossible situation. The CW's Jane the Virgin (Mondays, 9/8c) is an infectiously enjoyable confection of outlandish telenovela-inspired soap opera (think Ugly Betty) grounded in lovably fractious family dynamics (think a Latina Gilmore Girls — and how Jane would have been welcomed on the still-sorely-missed WB network).
Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy
Everything's changing on Arrow this year. Team Arrow has gained a few more members and allies, but Oliver (Stephen Amell) has also lost all his family (and his fortune). But with nothing left to lose, Oliver will finally make a play for Felicity's (Emily Bett Rickards) heart. However, the mysterious new head of Queen Consolidated Ray Palmer (which just so happens to be the real-world alias of the superhero The Atom) isn't going to make things easy for him.
Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles
Sure, Sam and Dean have died a lot on Supernatural — but never like this! When the Mark of Cain transformed Dean (Jensen Ackles) into a demon at the end of the Season 9, fans had no idea what was next for the eldest Winchester.
Ahead of Tuesday's premiere (9/8, CW) showrunner Jeremy Carver previews what to expect from Demon Dean, Sam's (Jared Padalecki) next move and whether death means anything on the show any more.
It's fantastic that comic books and superheroes are finally being recognized as cool, but do they all have to be "edgy" to be accepted? Not if The Flash has anything to say about it.
Despite being a spin-off of Arrow, The Flash feels much closer to Smallville in tone — and that's a good thing! The world doesn't need another dark drama about a man struggling to balance justice and morality. We still have Arrow for that (And Gotham. And Constantine.) Instead, The Flash goes in the complete opposite direction, reminding us how much fun being a superhero can be. But are Arrow fans ready to embrace the light?
You may want to sit down for this.
The cast of 7th Heaven reunited Tuesday for a Camden family dinner, bringing them together for the first time in eight years. And if you think eight years is a long time, I probably shouldn't tell you that the wholesome family series first premiered 18 (!) years ago, making its debut on The WB in 1996.

What will Emma and Hook's dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny's Diner. The bad news: "It's going to be tricky for the two of them," executive producer Adam Horowitz says. "Just because we saw their feelings reach a new level at the end of last season doesn't mean that that's the end of the story." And Emma may be the problem. "Emma is obviously a person who has a tough time trusting people and letting her guard down," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. "Sometimes you may feel something for somebody but your feelings hold you back."
