“You are my queen. Now, and always.”—Jon (Kit Harington), declaring allegiance before he kills Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), on Game of Thrones“Maybe he’ll be one of those people on The Voice that’s so bad they become an internet sensation.”—Amy (Melissa Fumero), trying to ease Terry’s guilt over encouraging a bad singer to pursue his dream, on Brooklyn Nine-Nine“That’s not what they do on The Voice, Amy—that’s American Idol. The Voice is purely a celebration of talent!”—Terry (Terry Crews)“So, what am I looking at here? High school tennis team, old dance crew, or…y’all magically fit in the same pair of pants?”—Tammy (Tina Fey), meeting a group of middle-aged women, in Wine Country“You guys are like Fleetwood Mac. You break up, you get back together again, and then you go out and make…

editor’s note

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY/PEOPLEUPFRONTS PARTYNEW YORK CITY, MAY 13Upfront and Away!IN THOSE NAIVE, HEADY DAYS BEFORE A NEW RULER OF the six kingdoms was crowned, Entertainment Weekly and our sister publication People joined forces to celebrate the “upfronts,” that week in May when TV networks flock to Westeros…sorry…New York City (got GoT on the brain) to introduce their series that’ll debut this fall. Fresh off a three-season pickup for This Is Us, stars Mandy Moore and Sterling K. Brown mingled with the likes of Christina Hendricks (Good Girls) and Mike Colter (who is starring in a new supernatural thriller called Evil on CBS). Bradley Whitford and Jimmy Smits were also on hand to talk up their new programs—and stage a mini–West Wing reunion (above right). Special thanks to our presenting sponsor, Netflix;…

the must list

TV1 Good OmensNeil Gaiman adapts his and Terry Pratchett’s beloved novel about an angel (Michael Sheen) and demon (David Tennant) who join forces to shut down the apocalypse. Who knew Armageddon could be so amusing? (Amazon Prime Video, May 31)Q&A: DAVID TENNANT & MICHAEL SHEENThe actors, 48 and 50, talk to EW’s Devan Coggan about their divine (and demonic) new showMichael, you play the bookshop-owning angel Aziraphale, and David, you’re the slippery demon Crowley. How does one tap into their inner angel or demon?DAVID TENNANT There’s not a lot of research you can do, I suppose. There aren’t people you can go and talk to who’ve experienced all of human history. [Laughs] But funnily enough, he and Aziraphale are almost the most human characters in the piece. They’re more human…

game of thrones: death of a dragon

The actors and writers break down the surprising coronations and tragic death in the biggest—and most controversial—TV finale of the decade.EMILIA CLARKE READ A PARAGRAPH IN THE final script for Game of Thrones.She read it again and again. Seven times, she says, she read the words that revealed the devastating fate of Daenerys Targaryen, a character she portrayed on the HBO global phenomenon for nearly a decade.“What, what, what, WHAT?!” the actress remembers thinking. “Because it comes out of f---ing nowhere. I’m flabbergasted. Absolutely never saw that coming.”It was October 2017. The actress had recently completed filming Solo: A Star Wars Story and had just returned to London following a brief vacation. She electronically received the season 8…

spoiler alert!

Fake scenes. Alternate endings. Drone killers. The lengths television creators must go to keep a secret are nothing short of extreme. “It’s very hard to protect them,” Grey’s Anatomy executive producer Krista Vernoff says. “There are so many people who can take a picture on a set.” It’s something that writers today worry about constantly—and also something nobody thought about 20 years ago, before the days of social media or even the internet. “On Beverly Hills, 90210 or Melrose Place, there wasn’t a level of accessibility,” says Darren Star, creator of those series. “There wasn’t the medium to get out the spoiler.” But in 2019, not only does that medium exist, it’s thriving, as viewers live-tweet shows and fansites want nothing more than to get their hands on exciting plot…

summer tv preview

Stranger Things 3NETWORK NETFLIXDATE 7.4TIME STREAMINGGENRE RETURNING DRAMASOME THINGS HAVE CHANGED IN Hawkins, Ind. (there’s a new mall!), and some things haven’t (the Upside Down is still creepy AF!). The third installment of Stranger Things picks up in the summer of 1985 with the core group of kids—Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Will (Noah Schnapp), and Max (Sadie Sink)—battling a heartless new monster: puberty. “We wanted to explore the theme of change,” says Matt Duffer, who created the series with his brother Ross. “The season takes place during the last summer before high school. The kids are growing up, and that transition is going to be messy and awkward and painful. Are they able to grow up without growing apart?” Oh, and…
