So Long, Westeros: 'Game Of Thrones' Ending After Season 8

Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones fans would probably live in Westeros forever if they could, but they've got some sad news coming- the series might be ending after Season 8.

According to Us Weekly, Michael Lombardo- that's the president of programming for HBO- dropped that particular bomb at the Television Critic's Association press tour on Thursday.

Lombardo was asked if Season 7 would be the end point for Game of Thrones, and he revealed the show would probably push just one year past that. "Seven seasons and out has never been the conversation," stated Lombardo. "The question is how many beyond the sev...

Stephen Amell And Jared Padalecki Share Some Bro Time

Our New Favorite Bromance: 'Arrow's' Stephen Amell And 'Supernat
If seemed hotter than usual this weekend, it was probably a side-effect from "Supernatural's" Jared Padalecki and "Arrow's" Stephen Amell's Texas bro time. Thankfully, the CW stars are not shy about sharing their wine-soaked shenanigans on social media. Amell began by tweeting, "The bromance will be real this weekend," on Friday. Amell was in Austin, where Padalecki lives, to film his wine and travel web series, "Dudes Being Dudes In Wine Country," according to the show's official Facebook page.

Amell and Padalecki followed up that tweet with some strong encouragement for UFC fighter Ron...

'Hannibal' Recap: The Red Dragon Is... A Real Dragon?

8/2/2015 6:53am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
Holy crap. Hannibal is on a roll- last week's "premiere" of the Red Dragon storyline was top-notch, and our second our, "And the Woman Clothed with the Sun…" (so long, food-based episode titles) hasn't lost a speck of momentum.

This whole "cop show" thing really gels with Hannibal, as much as I enjoy formless modern art European vacation TV.

This week: Will and Hannibal coalesce, Dolarhyde makes a friend, Abigail does serial killer prep work in flashback. Not much, as far as story goes (only two episodes into the Red Dragon stuff, Hannibal can afford to stop and savor things). But two mom...

‘Power' Recap: Ghost Lives Up To His Name

8/1/2015 10:00pm EDT
Power
I stand corrected. Ghost actually lived up to his name in “Three Moves Ahead,” unlike last week where his gangsta card was nearly revoked. This week’s episode shows what a masterful chess player Ghost really is. Always one step ahead, or three if you’re going by the episode title, of everyone else trying to bring him down. The question is who is Ghost making these power moves for…him and Angela? Tasha and the kids? Tommy?

As the second season of “Power” gets down to the wire, the stakes have never been higher for Ghost to choose his destiny. Whether it’s his future with Angela or his prese...

Michael J. Bassett: Meet 'Strike Back's' Master Of Action
On Cinemax's Strike Back, everyone knows that Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott are the dynamic duo who save the world. But you might not be able to name the third man who is the master behind the scenes: series co-executive producer, director and writer Michael J. Bassett. While the characters are being heroes on-screen, he's doing the heavy lifting off it.

We spoke with Michael earlier this month to discuss the development of Strike Back's final season, which premieres tonight, as well as talk about what it was like for him to let go of the series that he helped shape into one of the ...

'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Privilege' - Breakdown Of Trust
This week's Suits is all about things that are said in confidence and issues of trust, held together by some outstanding guest actors who turn things up another notch. 'Privilege' refers to a new wrench in the relationship between Harvey and his therapist, but they're not the only people figuring out who they can trust and just how much they can trust them.

Picking up generally where the last episode left off, Harvey's still upset about Dr. Agard bringing up his mother and Jessica wants Louis to relax. Mike is surprised that the "new Louis" is quoting Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" ...

'Major Crimes' Has A Major Guest Star This Week

Alan Ruck Drops Into TNT's 'Major Crimes'
TNT's Major Crimes has a major guest star this week: Alan Ruck (The Whispers), who drops into the police department as a potentially corrupt FBI agent that Captain Raydor and her team are forced to collaborate with. Needless to say, a good time will not be had by all.

Starpulse connected with Alan on Friday to preview his less than pleasant character and talk about how much fun it is to play the guy that people don't have to like. "It's a blast," he laughed. "Maybe it's just because I'm getting older now, [but] I'm getting to play more jerks and creeps."

Indeed, there are no nice words to...
