Arrow
The CW has unveiled the trailer for "Unthinkable," this coming Wednesday's second season finale episode of "Arrow" which will include the return of Nyssa al Ghul, and a final showdown with Deathstroke. There's also a bunch of photos for the episode here.

ABC
The alphabet has cancelled two more comedies - "Suburgatory" and "Super Fun Night". The pair join casualties "Trophy Wife", "The Neighbors" and "Mixology". "Nashville" has also been picked up, though the number of episodes is still to be determined. Their only comedy whose fate is in question right now is "Last Man Standing".

They've also picked up "Secrets and Lies," the Ryan Phillippe-led series remake of the Australian mini-series in which a father becomes the prime suspect in the murder of his neighbor's child. [Source: Deadline]

Hieroglyph
The first official cast photo is out from Fox's straight-to-series ancient Egyptian action-adventure series "Hieroglyph". Max Brown ("Spooks," "The Tudors") plays a thief working for the Pharoah (Reece Ritchie). The 13-episode first season is expected to debut sometime next season. [Source: The Live Feed]

Rules of Attraction
Bravo has begun development of three new scripted series, one of which is a high concept TV adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' novel "Rules of Attraction".

Roger Avary, who wrote and directed the 2002 film adaptation, is slated to write the TV version. The series is effectively a murder mystery told through twelve different points of view, mostly the spoiled children of the super rich who live without rules. [Source: Deadline

Better Call Saul
Patrick Fabian ("The Last Exorcism"), Rhea Seehorn and Michael Mando have all been tapped to star in AMC's upcoming "Breaking Bad" spin-off series "Better Call Saul".

Fabian plays a Kennedy-esque lawyer and name partner at a firm, Seehorn is a prestigious attorney with a complicated love life, and Mando plays a smart and calculating criminal. [Source: E! Online]
