Goodbye Arrow!

Oliver Queen and company will sign off in the fall

Caffeinated Clint



Like a pedestrian in the way of a bike, we might’ve seen it coming… but that doesn’t mean it hurts any less.

With rumors swirling for months now that ‘Oliver is going to do this…’ and ‘Oliver will definitely do that’, not to mention star Stephen Amell’s oft-vocalised stance on not wanting to be tied down too long to the series, no surprise, really, to hear that the producers of The CW’s “Arrow” have oped to end the series.

The next season, the eighth, will be the series’ last – and it’ll consist of only 10 episodes.

With a new wave of DC-comics tied shows in the works at the network – like “Batwoman”, which will seemingly encompass that same, dark and gritty tone that “Arrow” is known for – it was a given that Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros. TV’s first ‘Arrowverse’ series would be the one to go.

“This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind,” showrunner Beth Schwartz and executive producers Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim said Wednesday in a joint statement. “We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We’re excited about crafting a conclusion that honors the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and — more importantly — the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years.”

Star Amell posted a rather emotional video on Facebook, in which he said : “This show has given me a platform that extends so far beyond my ability to just appear on your television 23 times a year,” he said. “It has given me a voice for philanthropic endeavors, for social issues that I am interested in. I got to take batting practice with my childhood favorite sports team. I’ve had cinematic opportunities that are the direct result of the work that I’ve been doing here. And I know that when this is all said and done, after I drop off the face of the Earth for approximately for two months…I know the next chapter for me, personally and professionally, is going to be really exciting.”

The final season of “Arrow” kicks off in the fall.

Boreanaz : Something Angel in the works

Actor hints that some kind of surprise is in store for the show’s 20th anniversary

Caffeinated Clint



Last time David Boreanaz spoke of his ‘Angel’ character, he was wishing the ‘Buffy’ reboot well – encouraging fans to not only accept another actress in the ‘Slayer’ role but also Angel, knowing that part would also likely be recast.

Today, however, Boreanaz helped spike sales in mops and buckets by telling The Talk that something is in the works to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of “Angel” (which aired on The WB from October 5, 1999, to May 19, 2004, consisting of five seasons and 110 episodes).

“We’re coming up on 20 years. I mean, that’s amazing to have been blessed with a show like that and that’s where I really started my gig — this acting world,” said the “SEAL team” actor.

“I love that character,” Boreanaz added. “So, I will say there may be something coming up. I don’t want to give away much. I can say, it’s 20 years coming up this fall and we may have something in the works.”

Naturally, most took that to mean that Boreanaz would be playing the ageless (yep, he’ll always look 27) detective vampire again for a new limited series or telemovie – and that his former co-stars, which included Alexis Denisof, J.August Richards, Charisma Carpenter, Julie Benz, Vincent Kartheiser and Amy Acker would be joining him. It wouldn’t be a ‘reunion’ without everyone, of course. Wouldn’t that be frigtastic!?

What excited fans seem to be overlooking though are the traditional ways a reunion has taken place in the “Buffy” universe before – specifically, how the 20th Anniversary of the parent series was recognized. Remember? That EW reunion cover shoot (which Boreanaz and others participated in)? What about the ‘Buffy’ reunion panel at Comic-Con? Yep?

Hate to pop the balloon but I do feel Boreanaz, 49, is hinting at something smaller, though no less exciting, than a new “Angel” series. With ‘Buffy’ going the reboot route, without the original cast, there’s next to no reason why it’s spin-off would return to air, right? So, um, yep… expect both an EW issue and comic-con panel to be dedicated to Joss Whedon’s legendary f*cking vampire and his awesome troupe of spook combatants.

And yes, it broke me to write this too – – never have I wanted a ‘revival’ of a series so much in my life. Well, not since “Fang Face”.

Brian Austin Green says 90210 cast met up after Luke Perry’s death

The actor said he had spoken to Perry about the reboot

Caffeinated Clint



Brian Austin Green took to the airwaves this week to talk about the loss of his friend and “Beverly Hills 90210” co-star Luke Perry.

The actor has released a new episode of his podcast… with Brian Austin Green, in which he pays tribute to Perry, who died on March 4 after suffering a massive stroke in his Los Angeles home at the age of 52.

“Luke was a really f—ing cool guy,” Green tells listeners. “Luke was one of those people that nobody had a bad story about. He was just a great guy. And he was Luke no matter where you saw him, no matter when you saw him, no matter what he was going through. He was a rock. I’m extremely lucky to have had him in my life. He really is a great guy and he’ll be missed.”

The actor said he met up with his former “90210” co-stars at Gabrielle Carteris’ home following their beloved co-star’s death.

“It was very mixed emotions because you were happy to see everybody … but what a horrible reason to have to see everybody again,” Green said.

Green said he knew that Perry, what with his commitments to “Riverdale”, would not be able to do the recently-announced “90210” reboot with the rest of the troupe but “we thought, if the reboot’s doing really well he can always come back and he can do a couple episodes, we’ll figure it out,” Green said. “Same thing with Shannen [Doherty]. It’s a shame now that that’s not a possibility. That’s so low on the totem pole but it’s a shame for fans that they don’t get that send-off of Dylan McKay like they want.”

On a very sad note, Green said he texted Perry after he died “knowing obviously that he can’t text me back, but on some level hoping that he would text me back or that he was out there somewhere,” Green said. “And I know he is. I know he’s looking down and I know he’s smiling.”
