FX's hit psychological thriller drama series "The Following" has been renewed for a third season and there have been drastic changes happening behind the scenes. "Lost" alum Jennifer Johnson, who joined the WBTV family last June, is exiting her position as showrunner, although she will still be involved in the development of the series.
Instead of affecting the creative setup of the show by putting new people in, management opted to promote writers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley for the executive producer position in the Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy-led drama alongside executive producer Marcos Siega.
The reports now stem up different speculations whether these changes will once again create "creative differences" which has already happened at the first and second halves of season 2. Many viewers complained that "The Following" felt like two separate shows. more >>

Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" opened up about his controversial comments about homosexuality last year, attributing his statements to the Word of God.
Last December, the Robertson family patriarch made waves when discussing the Bible as well as homosexuality with GQ magazine. His comments resulted in a suspension from A&E's "Duck Dynasty" for a period of time. Today, the 68-year-old reality television star is promoting his new book unPHILtered: The Way I See It when he spoke with Us Weekly about his past comments.
"All I did was quote a passage of Scripture from antiquity," Robertson said. "They're mad at me, but I'm really just quoting what God said, so He's the one they have a problem with." more >>
"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood has been through it all: teen pregnancy, drug addiction, domestic violence, and all while being on TV for all to see. The reality star, and mother of 4-year-old Leah, recently spoke with The Christian Post about her new book Never Too Late and her life off-screen.
The Christian Post: How did you come to be on MTV in the first place?
Amber Portwood: My brother was going to do a show back in the day called "Engaged & Underage," but they ended up not doing it and a scouting person was looking for pregnant teenage girls and my brother's friend told them about it. They ended up calling me, but I didn't believe it was them. I told them, 'If this is really you, call me tomorrow,' and they did. They ended up sending out a tape and a paper of questions, and I answered the questions on tape, sent it in, and didn't really expect to hear anything back from it nor did I really believe it was real. They ended up picking me for the pilot and it just went from there. more >>
AMC's popular post-apocalyptic zombie horror drama series, "The Walking Dead," is set to premiere its fifth season on Oct. 12. Season five will be comprised of 16 episodes and will be run by season four executive producer, Scott Gimple.

Also, the first episode's title will be "No Sanctuary," probably referring to the situation Rick and his people have gotten themselves into at the end of the fourth season.

Marvel's television series, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D," is getting a second season and is set to premiere on Sept. 23. After a fairly good first season run, the series was renewed on May 8 earlier this year.
Only recently, ABC released a pair of promotional videos for the upcoming second season of the show. The first is only a short clip of collections from the first season's comedic action bits. The second one actually has new footage from the second season.

Clark Gregg, who plays Agent Phil Coulson in the series and in the Marvel films, has said the second season will be about his team "figuring out what S.H.I.E.L.D ought to be." more >>
