Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The cast has confirmed a couple of new details about the upcoming third season of “Agents of SHIELD” during this week’s Television Critics Association press tour. The premiere begins with a big time jump, with the fate of the rock-engulfed Simmons to be revealed early and said to be more ambitious than many of the cast expected.

We’ll also see what happens to her quite early in the season with the second episode said to be incredibly CG-heavy. With Hydra dismantled it won’t have much play in the new season, but Coulson will be out more in the field. [Source: Zap2It]

Game of Thrones
Actor David Bradley says his character of Walder Fray will be coming back into the fold in HBO’s fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” but he can’t say when: “He will be coming back, but I can’t say when. I can’t really say because things are in a delicate situation. I do look forward to it, because I do love playing someone so irredeemable. I’m afraid he makes me laugh because he’s so appalling that there’s a kind of dark humor in there somewhere.” [Source: Zap2It]

Empire
Fox has released a trailer for the second season of its music industry melodrama “Empire” which sees Andre (Trai Byers) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) trying to remove Lucious (Terrence Howard) as CEO, but he won’t go down without a fight.
