TrulyLuminary’s Top 5 Most Anticipated New TV Series

With all the new shows being ordered to series, we thought we’d make a list of the Top 5 that we’re looking forward to seeing! So, without further ado, the list:

5. Selfie

The ABC-produced sitcom, starring Karen Gillan and John Cho, is a modern adaptation of My Fair Lady. The series focuses on Eliza Dooley (Gillan), who is more concerned with her social media accounts and getting “likes,” than being liked.

“After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media ‘followers’ than she ever imagined — but for all the wrong reasons. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.” Cho will be playing Henry, the man in charge of re-marketing Eliza.

Why are we excited about Selfie? Well, we’re glad you asked!

The series will show us a new side of the actors, who have done quite a bit of Sci-Fi/Fantasy work in the past; Gillan on the BBC series Doctor Who and in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Cho in the Star Trek reboot.

4. The Flash

The Flash

With all the hype around superheroes right now, there’s no question as to why The CW ordered DC’s The Flash to series! Starring Grant Gustin, this show got it’s start in an episode of Arrow.

In case you aren’t familiar with him, here’s a little bit about the character straight from DC comics:

“Young Barry Allen’s life stopped the minute his mother was murdered. The true killer never found, its mystery obsessed Barry, driving him to become a forensic scientist. Consumed by his work, he spent his life chained to his desk, solving every case that flew across it. But when a freak lightning bolt hits a nearby shelf in his lab, Barry receives super-speed, becoming the Flash. Now, he’ll race up buildings, across oceans, and around the world to get his man — while getting introduced to a world so much bigger than his old life of microscopes and cold cases.

Able to run at near light-speeds, his powers provide the ultimate caffeine kick: He can run up buildings, move so swiftly he phases through objects, create sonic booms with the snap of his fingers — and never needs to order delivery. Despite his speed, Barry can become so obsessed with crime-solving he can still lose track of everything else around him, leaving the fastest man alive constantly running a minute behind.”

Looks like The Flash will be airing at 8 PM on Tuesdays on The CW! Here’s a first look:

3. Gotham

Gotham Banner

It sure seems like DC comics will be taking the television route with their stories as they bring yet another adaptation of their comics to primetime.

“Gotham is a story about the origins of the great DC Comics super-villains and how they came to be. Catwoman, The Riddler, Penguin, Poison Ivy. What made The Joker The Joker? How Scarecrow became Scarecrow,” says Bruno Heller, writer and executive producer.

“A lot of what this show is about is the relationship with a young Gordon and a young Bruce Wayne.” (Mirror.)

What we’re excited about: the back stories! Who doesn’t want to know why these villains are the way they are?

The show will air on Fox on Mondays at 8 PM.

2. Marvel’s Agent Carter

Agent Carter is a spin-off of the hit ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.LD, and is very big news for fans of the Captain America franchise.

From Marvel’s website:

“Marvel’s Agent Carter, starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad.

Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Marvel’s Agent Carter is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jeph Loeb.”

The show will run for 13 episodes in the same time slot as S.H.I.E.L.D and will bridge the the time that S.H.I.E.L.D is on hiatus.

If this clip doesn’t convince you that Hayley Atwell is amazing, we don’t know what will!

1. How to Get Away With Murder

The ABC and Shonda Rhimes-produced legal drama is unlike anything we’ve seen thus far.

The  synopsis, courtesy of IMDb: “A sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller about a group of ambitious law students and their brilliant, mysterious criminal defense professor. They become entangled in a murder plot that will shake the entire university and change the course of their lives.”

Why we’re excited about it: Have you seen the trailer? No? Watch it!

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort of “The Fault in Our Stars” are “Entertainment Weekly” cover stars

Actors Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort of Divergent and the upcoming Fault in Our Stars film will be gracing the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly! With the release of The Fault in Our Stars just under a month away, these two actors and author John Green will be very busy with promoting the film.

EW’s Sara Vilkomerson was able to visit the set and talk to the stars, Green, and director Josh Boone. This week’s issue will be full of great interviews and details from the set.

Vilkomerson asked the critically-acclaimed author how he felt about the fact that his novel became such a phenomenon: “I tried to write the funniest, most honest love story I could about these kids who were living with a difficult disease. I never thought it would be popular. I certainly never imagined it would be a movie.”

Elizabeth Gabler, president of Fox 2000, revealed to EW that producer Wyck Godfrey convinced her to pick up the film: “Wyck called me and said, ‘You can’t pass on this. You have to do this. I said, ‘Why are you doing this to me?’ And he said, ‘Because. It makes you remember when you were a teenager and you were in love for the first time and you didn’t want to hang up the phone.’”

Lastly, Green had some very nice things to say about Woodley and Elgort: “Shailene has become Hazel to me. Ansel has become Gus. The feeling I’ve had consistently is this deep weird joy.”

Details on the Final Season of “Glee”

Fans of Glee are aware that the focus has shifted in the most recent episodes of the show. Not only are we in a new location, several beloved characters are currently not part of the storyline. However, creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed some interesting details about the upcoming final season.

In an press call with TV Line, Murphy explained: “The final season is its own story in its own location; it is not New York-centric at all.”

He also revealed: “It really is a lovely, fitting season that dwells on the original people on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season. We’ll revisit some of the new kids that came and went, there’s a return of the (Sue Sylvester) and (Will Schuester) in a big way.”

According to Deadline, the final season will include a total of 24 episodes, two of which are left over from season five. After the unexpected and tragic passing of Cory Monteith, the creators’ decided to cut two episodes from the current season. The original plans for the final season, and big final scene, also had to change after Monteith’s passing. 

Murphy talked about what has changed for the final scene saying it “is about Rachel and Mr. Schue, and it returns them to their origins, their roots, how they felt about each other when they were much younger and everything was idyllic. I think the ending has to be a reflection and a celebration of how far all those characters have come.”
