Patrick Duffy, Priscilla Presley
Over the summer, Priscilla Presley got her Facebook friends excited by posting, "For all of those who mentioned that you would like to see me on Dallas, thank you very much for that support! We will see what happens..."
But are the writers of TNT's reboot really considering bringing back Jenna Wade, whom Presley played from 1983 to '88?
Someone turns up dead on the Sept. 25 season premiere of CBS's CSI. Who's the corpse in the casket? Executive producer Don McGill offers some clues:
Lisa Edelstein, Stana Katic
Is this the woman who will come between Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic)? Former House star Lisa Edelstein begins a three-episode Castle arc as investigator Rachel McCord, who is connected to Beckett's job offer in Washington, D.C., in the ABC drama's Sept. 23 premiere. "McCord becomes a mentor to Beckett and doesn't quite understand why Castle is hanging around," Edelstein says. "What McCord's done with her life is really inspiring and tempting to Beckett, but it is also threatening to the way of life Beckett's chosen so far."
Lana Parrilla and Rose McIver
ABC's Once Upon a Time will add a little pixie dust this season when Kiwi actress Rose McIver debuts as Peter Pan sidekick Tinker Bell in the third episode. "Our Tink is very strong, a lot of fun and not afraid to go out and have a few shots," says executive producer Edward Kitsis. "And although her heart is usually in the right place, she is mischievous."
Hawaii Five-0 is beefing up Chin Ho's (Daniel Dae Kim) presence in Season 4.

Under the Dome's Sept. 16 cliffhanger will be all about "Junior, Junior, Junior," says executive producer Neal Baer of the CBS hit's seemingly demented deputy (Alexander Koch). "He has the biggest decision of his life to make."
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences kicked off Emmy season with a cocktail reception for the nominees who will compete for gold on Sept. 22. Of course, the actors also dished about what's coming up for their characters:
Gary Carr, Julian Ovenden, Tom Cullen
How many gentlemen does it take to fill the void left by Matthew Crawley? A whole bunch will get the chance to try on the new season of Downton Abbey. "The loss of much-loved characters is real dramatic rocket fuel that enhances our storytelling," says executive producer Gareth Neame. "As much as people were devastated by the loss of Matthew — with some people almost grieving as they would for a real person — those are the dynamics of this show." No one is suffering more than widowed Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery). "We do see quite a bit of the Mary she was before she met Matthew, that icy iron-maiden quality," says Neame. "It's going to take an awful lot to get her back to life." She'll get some help from three handsome men when Downton returns to PBS's Masterpiece on January 5...
