Sci-fi Spoilerpalooza

New trailers for the fall season shows are OUT! All links lead to pages with YouTube versions of the trailers, which should be viewable for non U.S. residents, too.

You can see all of the network trailers gathered on these pages: the CW, CBS, ABC, FOX, and NBC.

Agent Carter: Spoiler TV has up short synopses for both this show and its sister show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Arrow: Showrunner Marc Guggenheim spoke with Variety about the plans for season four. Sounds like the show’s producers and star would all love to bring Constantine into the show’s mythology.

Childhood’s End: EW has up an exclusive trailer for the new Syfy show.

Damian: Spoiler TV has up a teaser for the show.

The Expanse: The show hasn’t aired yet, but it’s already been renewed for a second season!

Preacher: Seth Rogen revealed on his Twitter the first official photo from his show.

The Originals: Daniel Gilles spoke with EW about a deleted scene between Elijah and Esther in the season finale of the episode. Too bad; sounds like a scene that was worth keeping. Executive producer Michael Narducci spoke with EW about the plans for season three.

Wayward Pines: SpoilerTV has up synopses for episodes five through ten. Showrunner-executive producer Chad Hodge spoke with Variety about the show.

The X-Files: David Duchovny spoke about the new series, and that it will have a mix of both monsters and mythology episodes.

The latest Spoiler Room at EW has spoilers on shows Once Upon a Time, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Originals, and The Vampire Diaries. Some of this is out of date after this past week’s finales.

Supernatural (Tuesday nights, 9pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

This week is the season finale, “My Brother’s Keeper” (10.23). So far, we’ve got a promo, an extended promo, a very short promo with a very significant piece of dialogue, the official synopsis, a producer’s preview, and promotional photos. Last week’s episode, “The Prisoner,” will repeat at 8pm before the season finale starts.

Pretty sure we can expect more promotion before Wednesday.

We got another last-minute sneak peek and producer’s preview for “The Prisoner.”

The show has a new promotional one-sheet (poster) out.

This is on the heels of the CW upfronts, in which network head Mark Pedowitz stated that season 11 was not intended to be the last one and it was announced that the show would remain on Wednesday nights at 9pm after Arrow.

The upfronts also included the usual stuck-in-the-previous-season synopsis for season 11.

There was another con this past weekend, the Jus in Bello one in Rome.

The network is still hoping for a spinoff, perhaps for next spring. No word on what it might be.

Despite preemptions for sports in Chicago, and the two-minute overrun from the Arrow season finale, the demo for “The Prisoner”rose a bit to 0.7/2 in demo, and 1.75 million in audience.

We’ll be back next week with more news, spoilers and blatantly unabashed self-promotion. Stay tuned and check out our reviews of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Event, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Supernatural.
