Here’s an extended trailer:


The Walking Dead

Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), Tom Payne (Jesus), Austin Amelio (Dwight), and Xander Berkley (Gregory) have all been promoted from recurring guests to regular cast members for season seven, according to the Hollywood Reporter. This isn’t much of a surprise—especially for Morgan, playing the show’s big new villain—but an indicator that all four actors will play a major role in the next season.

Sleepy Hollow

The series is introducing a Dana Scully-inspired character named Anna to create conflict with Crane. Here’s her character description:

She’s got a tough, take-charge personality, punctuated by a wry sense of humor. She’s a born leader, but she also has a softer, more caring side which she rarely shows. Anna is fiercely devoted to her 11-year-old daughter Stella, a protective instinct Crane respects and appreciates.
