TV News: Hannibal, Royals, Daredevil, Returned

NBC used their TCA Winter Tour panel to confirm that the third season of “Hannibal” would NOT be airing until sometime this Summer.

The delay was expected as filming on the new season didn’t kick off until October, two months later than usual, which means filming on the new season won’t wrap until late May/June. [Source: Forbes]

The Royals
Two months before the show even premieres, E! has renewed its scripted series “The Royals” for a second season. Elizabeth Hurley stars as the Queen and matriarch of a twisted, soapy take on England’s first family. William Moseley, Alexandra Park and Vincent Regan also star. [Source: The Live Feed]

Ahead of the release of Marvel’s “Daredevil” series on Netflix in April, the company is set to issue “Daredevil No. 15.1,” a one-off comic book tie-in set during the early days of the hero’s crime-fighting career.

“Arrow” show runner Marc Guggenheim penned the story and says the story involves Daredevil catching a murderer just after he had killed someone. The next day, Matt Murdock’s law firm assigns him a pro bono case – defending the same guy that Daredevil captured the previous night. [Source: Heat Vision]

The Returned
A&E has unveiled the first trailer for “The Returned,” its remake of the acclaimed French supernatural TV series. The show is slated to debut after the Season 3 premiere of “Bates Motel” on Monday, March 9th.
