The Immortal Kevin Fitzpatrick was born and raised in New York City, and that doesn't make sense. Kevin wears many hats, including actor, editor, and writer, but never yellow. The best things in life are Back to the Future, beets, Firefly and The Venture Bros. When not picking apart the minutia of pop culture in film and TV, Kevin can usually be found RIGHT BEHIND YOU.
That ‘Office’ Revival May Become a Christmas Special

Every ‘Arrow,’ ‘Flash,’ ‘Supergirl’ and ‘Legends’ Crossover, Ranked
At long last, The CW will finally treat Arrow, Flash, Legends and Supergirl to a proper four-way crossover with the two-night “Crisis on Earth-X.” The yearly event is always a highlight, but did you realize that The CW’s DC superheroes have met onscreen no less than twenty-five times? Before Barry and Iris’ big wedding brings comic chaos galore, the many Arrow-verse crossovers simply must be ranked.
Jimmy Kimmel Might Retire From Late-Night ‘Live!’ in 2019
The late-night wars have seen a surprising shift in recent months, as Colbert’s Late Show begins to overtake Fallon’s Tonight Show ratings, but might we be in for another shake-up soon? Perhaps over at ABC, as Jimmy Kimmel is apparently considering leaving Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2019.
Carrie Fisher, ‘Star Wars’ Princess Leia, Dies at 60
Terrible news to confirm today, as a beloved icon and Star Wars star’s condition has taken a turn for the worse.

‘Knight Rider’ Goes ‘Fast and Furious’ With Justin Lin Digital Series
We’ve already had one Knight Rider reboot stall out (it was a Transformer voiced by Val Kilmer, guys), but is KITT making another comeback? Looks like NBC might be getting a little Fast & Furious with a new digital series produced by Justin Lin, bringing Knight Rider back to the road.
‘Supergirl’ Stands With Superman in First Official Season 2 Photo
Perhaps keeping coy in her CW move, Supergirl has notably trailed behind Arrow, Flash or Legends of Tomorrow in releasing any official previews of the new season. That said, the first official photo brings Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman down to stand alongside his cousin (and maybe even throw a little shade Zack Snyder’s way).
Jerry Seinfeld Approached for Live ‘Seinfeld’ Episode, Plus ‘Curb’ Return?
Seinfeld seems about the least likely sitcom to consider revival, to a point the idea formed the spine for an entire Curb Your Enthusiasm season. That said, Jerry Seinfeld has apparently at least been approached for a live episode return, and may himself return for Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9.
Darth Vader Won’t Return to ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Anytime Soon, If Ever
Star Wars Rebels has gifted us similarly high-profile big bads each year, from beating Rogue One to James Earl Jones’ Darth Vader return, to this year’s reemergence of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Don’t expect Vader to have any significant role going forward, however, as Rebels boss Dave Filoni says there’s been “an elected decision to not have Vader around.”
NBC Admits ‘Heroes Reborn’ Maybe, Kinda, Definitely Wasn’t a Great Idea
We know what you’re thinking: There’s no way NBC actually followed through on its Heroes revival plans to bring us Heroes Reborn, right? Well, brace yourselves - they did, it already aired, and spoiler alert: it wasn’t great.
