Yahoo Entertainment has picked the 20 buzziest moments from the 2018 TV season so far, from heart-wrenching deaths to funny cat videos to high-profile firings.
If you've watched the first five episodes of the Netflix series' new season, Rachael Taylor is ready to break down those twists (sorry, Griffin).
When it comes to obscure Marvel heroes that you would never expect to see cross paths with Jessica Jones, the hard-drinking private eye, nobody beats the Whizzer. A speed demon with a bright yellow costume and crazy origin story involving a mongoose-blood transfusion (yes, really), the Whizzer raced into existence in 1941, when Marvel was still known as Timely Comics. After a not especially distinguished 77-year career, he’s now the surprising centerpiece of Jessica Jones‘s Season 2 premiere, which debuted on Netflix — along with the rest of the 13-episode season — today.
Jessica Jones was a hero for the age of #TimesUp and #MeToo before those movements were born. Season 2 may have a slow start, but there's much to look forward to.
In Season 2, Jessica Jones ventures into anger management therapy. But she's still going to kick butt, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg assures us.
'Jessica Jones' returns next month on Netflix, and now we know the private eye's business is in trouble. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg offers more teases.
This week, Netflix’s Marvel series, "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist," will finally come together in "The Defenders."
Fans of “Jessica Jones” will see another familiar face when the show returns for Season 2. Netflix confirmed Monday that David Tennant, who played the menacing Kilgrave, is set to make an appearance. Netflix confirmed that the actor, who recently lent his voice to the “DuckTales” reboot and is best known for playing heroes on screen rather than villains, will be returning in some form to the show in its second season.
Over the last month, executive producers of more than 30 current genre shows have taken part in Yahoo TV’s “Why Genre Shows Matter” survey, either via email or by phone. We’ve learned which genre show was the first to resonate with them, which genre show they believe deserved more Emmy love, which current genre show they think is tackling an issue well, and, if they were a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, what moment, episode, or arc best explains why in honor of the show’s 20th anniversary.
Leading up to the 20th anniversary of the March 10, 1997, premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Yahoo TV is celebrating “Why Genre Shows Matter” and the history of how these shows have tackled universal themes (such as how much high school sucks) and broader social issues. “Name a current show you think is tackling an issue well” — that’s another question we posed to more than 30 executive producers of current sci-fi/fantasy series who agreed to take part in our Why Genre Shows Matter survey over the last month, either by email or phone. I’m obsessed with Black Mirror.
What was the first genre show to resonate with you? 1. HBO owes a “thank you” to The Incredible Hulk. Because when you’re a skinny, nerdy 10-year-old, you wish you could transform into a painted green Lou Ferrigno and beat the living s–t out of anyone who makes you angry.

To discuss their experiences bringing those stories to the screen, we connected Sera Gamble, co-creator/writer/executive producer of Syfy’s The Magicians, with Melissa Rosenberg, creator/writer/executive producer of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, and discovered that while they’d never officially met, they’re fans of each other’s shows.

Throughout this marathon campaign, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has insisted that “I know words, I have the best words.” But in last night’s debate, language failed him when he suddenly lashed out at Hillary Clinton and interjected, “Such a nasty woman!”

In 2015, television made us laugh, it made us cry, it made us text friends “OMG?!” There were so many incredible moments that we couldn’t stop talking about on Twitter, in the office kitchen, via Skype with our moms.

There was an unprecedented variety of excellent dramas this year… as well as an unprecedented amount of them. But with the range of tone, genre, casting, styles of writing and direction — this was truly a ripe year for drama, spreading across network, basic and premium cable, and streaming as well. Here are my picks for the best of them.
Great episodes are the ones that become a part of the larger cultural conversation, like Inside Amy Schumer’s “12 Angry Men” and the Jinx finale. A great episode can hook you into a show at the start by establishing a strong point of view, as the pilots for Empire and UnREAL did.

The partnership between Netflix and Marvel got off to a rock ‘em, sock ‘em start earlier this year with the launch of Daredevil, which earned instant accolades for its gritty storytelling and superb action sequences. Now the streaming service is looking to continue that momentum with Jessica Jones, the second of four planned Marvel-related series that will continue with Luke Cage and Iron Fist before culminating in the all-star Avengers-style team-up, The Defenders. After months of filming on the streets of New York, Jessica Jones has announced that her entrance into the larger onscreen Marvel Universe will occur on Nov. 20.
The latest Marvel Netflix series will premiere on November 20, 2015 at 12:01am PT in all territories where Netflix is available with 13 one-hour episodes.
Later this year, Netflix will premiere its next Marvel series, Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter as a failed New York-based superhero who reinvents herself as a private detective. Patsy is poised for a breakout beyond Jessica Jones. Marvel, which has been dramatically expanding and diversifying its comics roster over the past two years, continues apace with the launch of the female-led Patsy Walker, aka Hellcat!, written by Kate Leth and illustrated by Brittney Williams.
