TV fans had a big Sunday night, as not only did "Boardwalk Empire" come to an explosive finale, but AMC's "The Walking Dead" also wrapped up the first half of its sixteen episode season three. With the rest of the season not slated to air until early 2013, those eager to see where the zombie drama will go next will have to patiently wait, but the network isn't leaving them completely high and dry.

At the end of July, AMC closed the curtain on "The Killing" after a disappointing second season that saw flagging viewership and overall criticism for an arc that routinely saw the narrative spin its wheels. But, less than a month later, word emerged that both Netflix and DirecTV came calling, looking to team up with Fox TV Studios to revive the show. Then, a few weeks ago, AMC was back in the game, with reports that they might team with Netflix to make the third season happen. And well, for fans of the show, the good news is that the show is definitely coming back.

Let the excitement/backlash begin. While certain corners of the Internet continue to bemoan the success of Lena Dunham, she's just brushing that dirt off her shoulder, as season two of "Girls" gets ready to return. And the first trailer is here to give a taste of what's in store.

I'm not a fantasy fiction buff by any stretch, but in 2004 it was hard to ignore the mammoth accomplishment of Susanna Clarke's "Jonathan Strange And Mr. Norrell." A wildly original and inventive epic, running nearly 800 pages, the work was one of the few to crossover to the mainstream, becoming a critical darling and a best-seller. Its dazzling weaving together of history, magic, romance and more (combined with David Foster Wallace style footnotes) made it one of the most unique reading experiences in a long time. It would no doubt be a difficult text to adapt, but BBC is going to give it a try.

Though basic cable networks like FX and AMC, as well as streaming giant Netflix, are trying their hand at the type of programming that made HBO famous, the cable company isn’t yielding an inch. Variety is reporting that the venerated cable channel is developing the new series “Paper” with Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B.

Somewhat surprisingly, CBS has bypassed the usual pilot song-and-dance and gone ahead and ordered thirteen episodes of "Under the Dome," an adaptation of Stephen King's beloved doorstop-sized novel, adapted by comic book creator Brian K. Vaughan and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. The series should begin airing/scaring the crap out of audiences next summer.

“Boardwalk Empire” is set to air its third season finale on Sunday, and very early on in the third season’s run it was announced that HBO had renewed the show for a fourth season. Showrunner Terrence Winter seems to have a very definite roadmap in terms of the story he wants to tell on the show, and to date the program has reliably delivered a new 12-episode season every September. It seems that trend will continue next year, and with all eyes creatively on season four, the show has recruited two new collaborators who have a pretty good track record.

Since being touted this past summer as a spiritual cross between “Smallville” and “Twin Peaks,” it's safe to say the A&E “Psycho” prequel “Bates Motel” is well on its way toward earning that claim. In terms of recent Hitchcock reverence, the series looks to take its tone more toward the bright absurdity of Anthony Hopkins' “Hitchcock,” rather than the dour one of “The Girl,” and now a slew of peculiar new photos have appeared to intrigue further.

SyFy In Talks To Tempt Fate, Develop 'Waterworld' TV Series

A footnote of contention always appears around Kevin Costner's ambitious 1995 sci-fi “Waterworld,” in that despite its reputation as a legendary flop ($264 million worldwide box office on a $200+ million budget), the film itself is never quite as awful as the general word indicates, though at no point does it deliver anything other than an unhinged Dennis Hopper and empty spectacle. Now it seems one of cable's top channels are gearing up to give the property a second look.

One of the big events of 2013 won't be happening at the multiplex, but through your Netflix account as David Fincher's "House Of Cards" will unspool on the streaming rental site. While it's not the first piece of original programming to stream online, it's certainly the most high profile, and it will undoubtedly be a major test for the future of broadcasting which is only getting more competitive. And with the first trailer turning heads a couple of weeks back, a new batch of character images have dropped.
