On this episode of Collider TV Talk (April 4th, 2016) Josh Macuga, David Griffin, Sinéad de Vries, Sasha Perl-Raver and Dennis Tzeng discuss the following:
- Season 6 Finale of The Walking Dead
- It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia renewed for three more seasons
- Superhero rundown
- Highlights and low-lights
- Pilot Review: The Path
- Twitter questions
- And more…
The season 6 finale of The Walking Dead aired last night to VERY mixed reactions. Fans were finally treated to Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan but were left with a very salty cliffhanger. Fans assaulted, as they’re known to do, the social media world and bashed the finale for its lack of payoff after an entire season leading up to this point. The TV Talk panel get’s into their thoughts and what it will all mean for the series moving forward.
On April 10th both Showtime and Starz will be entering the binge market when they release all 6 episodes of Dice, the new series starring Andrew Dice Clay on Showtime and all 13 episodes of Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience on Starz. Other networks like TBS have tried such moves with their comedy Angie Tribeca, but this is a first for a pay channel like Showtime or Starz.
FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been renewed for its 12th, 13th and 14th season on the network. The 14th season will tie the all time record of seasons by a live-action comedy show set by Ozzie and Harriet in the 1950s. The comedy, which all started with a camcorder pitch from a Hollywood apartment, originally aired on FX and moved to FXX, just ended its 11th season in early March.
Jessica Henwick, who recently played Nymeria Sand on Game of Thrones will join the cast of Netflix’s Iron Fist as Colleen Wing, a martial arts master that has the ability to harness her chi to increase her strength and accelerate her healing power. She plays a central role in Iron Fist’s development and Danny Rand’s assimilation back into New York.
In an interview with Collider.com, Preacher showrunner and Breaking Bad alum Sam Catlin spoke about the series not being Preacher lite or PreacherTV. In other words the dark, violent series, will try its damnedest to appease its loyal fan base who want the darkness they’re accustomed to.
The Flash ventured onto Supergirl last week on CBS. The episode gave the rookie series a nice spike in ratings and opened the door for other crossovers of its kind.

PILOT REVIEW: The Path
The Path follows a family at the center of a controversial cult movement as they struggle with relationships, faith, and power. Each episode takes an in-depth look at the gravitational pull of belief and what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want. The series blends elements of mystery-thriller, romance, and mysticism.
