'FROZEN'S' PRINCE HANS & TROLL KING CAST IN 'ONCE UPON A TIME'! TRAILER & POSTERS FOR 'REIGN' SECOND SEASON WITH CRAIG PARKER JOINING! POSTERS FOR SYFY'S 'Z NATION' ZOMBIE SERIES

'REIGN' SECOND SEASON
GETS FIRST TRAILER & POSTERS
Tones of television updates today, starting with the first trailer and new posters for the second season of the super popular historical series REIGN which followed the youth of Mary Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane) at the French court and her wedding to Prince Francis (Toby Regbo). With the French king dead in the first season finale, the second season will see Mary and Francis ruling France. The show, which returns at CW this Autumn October 2nd, will ad some new characters. Beside Leith (Jonathan Keltz) becoming a regular cast member, we shall also get introduced to Princess Claude, the daughter of late King Henry and Queen Catherine. She is being described as a very sexually advanced young lady with an eye for mischief.

CRAIG PARKER JOINS THE CAST
However, the best new addition to the REIGN cast in the second season will be our most beloved Craig Parker (we positively adored him in LORD OF THE RINGS, SPARTACUS and LEGEND OF THE SEEKER) who will play Narcisse, a brilliant, gorgeous, sexual, and fierce, a devout Catholic with a “death grip” on French Court. But every man has his Achilles heel, and in this case, Narcisse will meet his match in Catherine de Medici.


ONCE UPON A TIME
CASTS 'FROZEN'S' PRINCE HANS AND THE TROLL KING
Over at ABC they're busy using the popularity of Disney's FROZEN by putting its characters in their ONCE UPON A TIME fantasy show. After Georgina Haig was cast as Elsa, Elizabeth Lail as Anna and Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff, LORD OF THE RINGS star Jonathan Rhys Davies has been hired to play Pabbie, the Troll King of the Valley of the Living Rock! Davies will lend his voice to the CGI Troll king who is gentle, wise and the source of unexpected insight. Meanwhile, Tyler Jacob Moore has been cast as FROZEN's villainous Prince Hans and will appear in the new season which starts September 28th!

FIRST POSTERS FOR SYFY'S
 'Z NATION'  ZOMBIE TV SERIES
Another show to get posters is SyFy's upcoming zombie drama Z NATION which comes to the sf channel this Autumn with 13 episodes set in post apocalyptic USA.  Starring Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch, Kellita Smith, Anastasia Baranova, Russel Hodgkingson and Keith Allan Z NATION starts three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country, following a team of everyday heroes who must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.Similar to THE WALKING DEAD, this show will also deal with the moral dilemmas in such times.

  1. It seems like a lot of the same themes keep popping up on TV series - historical fiction and zombies. How many times can they go through these themes without becoming boring?

    1. she IS the queen :) But I have to say that the costumes in that show are mind-numbingly stupid in general and nonsensical :)

    2. I didn't think it was mind-numblingly stupid, but then I'm not up on fashion the way you are. You're talking to someone who right now, is still dressed in prep cook clothes and apron with a pink babushka on her head.

    3. they were nonsensical in the way that they absolutely didn't match the era in which the show is set and were totally random, not even fitting the certain situations in the show. They wanted to be avant-garde but it turned out kitschy not classy and artsy

    4. That's too bad.

      I don't like when I am watching a movie and the character is making eggs and toast, and yet on the counter are a bunch of ingredients that have nothing to do with that meal. Just sorta cut up, with a board and nice near.

      Meh.

    5. I hate it when they mage eggs and toast dressed in their outside clothes, like you're gonna go to work smelling like fried food....

  4. Jonathan Rhys Davies is typecast first as a Dwarf now a Troll. He does have an amazing voice.

  5. I can't wait for the new season of OUAT! I love Hans. Z Nation is still interesting but zombie trends seem to never take a break. The Reign section was well detailed. Nice work Dez.

  7. You know, I see where you are going with the snooze fest for Once Upon a Time. This second season has been slow going. However, I am holding out until I see the Wizard of Oz and Frozen episodes. I think those will pique my interest again.

    1. the second season was just a torture without any direction or goal, so I kinda left after first few episodes. As far as I can see from certain scenes in the third season, the show just doesn't have the vibe it had in the opening season

  8. There's a mighty lot of 'meaningful' glances in that Reign trailer...

    Woo! Go the zombies! ;)

    1. it's a rather crazy show, not your regular historical one... A fun one if you don't mind all the extreme kitsch in the costumes, horrid acting from the lead actress and teensy affairs in it :)

  11. Thanks for the heads up on "Z Nation." I plan to watch this new zombie series with fervor this fall. I gave "Reign" a bit of a chance, but the series is not for me.

  13. I love movies and TV shows based on the the past and on the future. Reign takes care of the past and Z Nation takes care of the future.
