Get ready for a lot of pretty people with bloody open sores on Reign.
The CW series returns this fall after the death of the Darkness, who was keeping the Black Plague at bay through his sacrifices. "The plague is coming and lands at the castle with a vengeance," executive producerLaurie McCarthy said at the CW drama's Comic-Con panel on Thursday. "Not everyone will survive it... but the plague will pass and it will be followed by famine." She added that Queen Mary (Adalaide Kane) and King Francis (Toby Regbo) will have to learn what it's like to "inherit a nation that is in fact burning... and out of their control."

Sound the alarm. Someone has a bad case of FX envy — and it isn't pretty. The smarmy and sophomoric Sirens, about three obnoxious Chicago paramedics, is USA Network's awkward attempt to branch out into the bawdy world of dark adult comedy (Thursday, 10/9). Confusing tastelessness and cheap profanity with actual humor, this misfire from executive producer Denis Leary feels like a series of limp outtakes from the more daring Rescue Me.
