at . Comments

There is a lot of casting news today, a premiere date, a trailer and an order for more episodes.

So many little details to cover, so let's get started!

Dunsany Sisters

Starz announced Hannah James and Tanya Reynolds will be playing the Dunsany sisters, Geneva and Isobel, on Outlander Season 3. James (right) will be Geneva, who is beautiful and headstrong, but also petulant, spoiled and demanding, while Reynolds (left) will be Isobel, described as warm, friendly, and inherently more likeable.

Season 3 follows the plot of Voyager, focusing on Claire's struggle to live without Jamie in 1948 and Jamie's life after the Battle of Culloden without Claire.

Or, essentially, all the parts we missed before Claire took her daughter to Scotland and learned Jamie had survived the battle and looked longingly at the stones, knowing where she needed to be.

Hot Looking Legends - DC's Legends of Tomorrow

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 has been granted four more episodes, bringing the total for the sophomore outing to 17.

Since the series was initially a midseason show, it was only given 13 to start the 2016-7 season. The CW is considering that a full season, as the team-up aspect has never been expected to drive a full 22-episode order.

The CW still needs to make decisions on No Tomorrow and Frequency.


Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 3 has a premiere date! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, January 11 on Bravo.

If you recall, GG2D has already been renewed for two more seasons after that, through Season 5, and cancelled. That's one way to do it!

The series from Marti Noxon follows Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein) as she goes through a divorce, surviving only through the relationships of her similarly situated close circle of girlfriends. As Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 2 ended, Delia (Necar Zadegan) was forced to marry Gordon to save face after he discovered she'd had an affair.

Season 3 will see Abby trying her hand at romance novels and being romanced by her son's baseball coach since ex-husband Jake is finally handling the finances. Sounds good!

Roberts Leonard

Leonard Roberts has joined Major Crimes Season 5.

He'll play Commander Leo Mason, head of the Criminal Intelligence Division of the LAPD. Handsome, intelligent and charismatic, he's also competition for Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell), as they're both gunning for the position for Taylor's role as Assistant Chief of Special Operations.

If you recall, Taylor was killed in action during the first half of the season, leaving the position vacant.

Raydor and Mason aren't the only opponents, though, as Camryn Manheim will also be on board as Deputy Chief of Operations and in contention for the job.

C Lloyd

Christopher Lloyd will guest star on the December 1 episode of The Big Bang Theory.

There are absolutely no details about the role he sill play, but if you're a fan of TBBT, you know references to Back to the Future are staples throughout the series..

"We’re so excited to be working with Christopher Lloyd and think we’ve created a fun part that fans will really enjoy," The Big Bang Theory executive producers said in a statement on Wednesday.

Hopefully, we can expect a nod to the series at the very least.

Good Fight Returns

Two more familiar faces from The Good Wife are taking up The Good Fight on CBS All Access.

Zach Grenier and Jerry Adler will be reprising their roles as David Lee and Howard Lyman on the Christine Baranski/Cush Jumbo starrer. The show follows Diana and her goddaughter, Maia (Game of Thrones' Rose Leslie) as they join Lucca's law firm after Diane's savings is wiped out helping Maia during her firm's financial scam ruins her reputation.

Netflix Captive

Netflix has released the trailer for their upcoming docuseries Captive, from two-time Oscar-winning producer Simon Chinn (Man on Wire, Searching for Sugar Man) and acclaimed executive producer Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), which examines the most challenging hostage situations of our times, from the highest-profile cases to those kept hidden from the public.

With privileged access to a range of viewpoints, Captive sheds light on an escalating international trend and efforts to resolve it, exploring a wide range of hostage situations from the viewpoint of everyone involved: the victims, their families, experienced negotiators—and the kidnappers themselves.

It will make its world premiere at DOC NYC Friday, Nov. 11, and premiere globally on Netflix on Dec. 9. Take a look:
