On the heels of Lady Gaga confirming her return to the American Horror Story franchise, comes word of another fan favorite also doing the same. Angela Bassett, who’s appeared on every season since Coven (S3), will take part in the popular FX anthology’s sixth season.

While promoting London Has Fallen, the 57-year-old actress spilled the beans about her new character. “I will be back… I think I might be psychic. I think. But it can all change, we don’t start filming until June this year, so anything is possible and everything can change between now and then,” she told Collider.

With S6 being set in two time periods, it’ll be interesting to she how psychic powers play into the season’s theme. Com’n Ryan Murphy, give us more tidbits, especially the show’s new subtitle.

Happy that Bassett and Gaga are returning? Weigh in below.

Wayward Pines was a pleasant surprise for FOX last summer, scoring stellar ratings. Naturally, the network renewed the M. Night Shyamalan-produced series. I actually quite enjoyed it myself.

When it returns for its sophomore season, Jason Patric steps into the lead role for a vacating Matt Dillon. Djimon Hounsou and Nimrat Kaur also join the show as new series regulars.

Carla Gugino isn’t letting her regular gig on Showtime’s Roadies prevent her from returning. She’ll reprise her role of Kate Hewson for Season 2, albeit in a limited capacity. Find out below who else from the first season booked a return ticket back to Wayward Pines.

TGIF nostalgia is all the rage these days thanks to Fuller House. Love or loathe the revival, people are talking about it. No wonder Netflix swiftly renewed the comedy for a second season.

Clearly, Jimmy Fallon is a fan of the 90s sitcom. He enlisted Jesse Frederick to pen a new theme song for The Tonight Show. Frederick is the mastermind behind the catchy intros for Family Matters, Step By Step and Full House to name a few.

Check out The Tonight Show’s campy new opening credits below. If you watched any of the sitcoms during ABC’s TGIF comedy block, you’ll appreciate it.

Is Golden Globe number two on the way? Probably not, but I’m confident the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will most likely nominate her again. They’re notoriously known to be huge star f*ckers.

During an interview with Z100, Lady Gaga confirmed she’s booked a return gig to American Horror Story. Mother Monster replied “yes” when asked if she’ll appear on the FX series again. She added, “I can’t promise you how or when or anything like that.” Does that mean she might not return for Season 6, but show up for Season 7. So very cryptic.

Not much is known about Season 6. Ryan Murphy has kept relatively mum on the topic. FX boss John Landgraf previously revealed it will be “set in the present” with “echoes of the past” mixed in.” “It’s set in two time periods,” he added, “but principally in the present.”

Listen to Gaga’s interview below, where she also talks about “Til It Happens To You” and her Oscar performance.

TV Land Developing First Wives Club Series

Fans have long waited for a sequel to The First Wives Club. Sadly, that never happened, nor do I think it ever well. I suppose this is some sort of consolation prize.

TV Land just announced it’s given a formal pilot order based on the hit 1996 Paramount Pictures film. Their adaptation will more or less follow the film but with some minor changes. The three women will still reunite at their college friend’s funeral, but instead of their friend committing suicide, she’ll die from a freak accident. Also, New York City will be swapped out for San Francisco. Check out the full show description below.

While other networks have announced show renewals, ABC has been relatively quiet. That is until now. The alphabet just delivered season renewals to four shows.

Quantico, which has been one of the breakouts this season, received a sophomore season order. Its overnight numbers are respectable, but the Priyanka Chopra-fronted FBI drama is one of the season’s biggest shows in delayed viewing. Find out what other shows received good news.

Sarah Hyland Joins Dirty Dancing Remake

Sarah Hyland is the latest to join ABC’s upcoming remake of Dirty Dancing. The 25-year-old Modern Family actress has been cast as Lisa Houseman, Baby’s older sister. The role was originally played by Jane Brucker in the 1987 feature film.

Hyland joins previously announced cast members Abigail Breslin (Baby), Colt Prattes (Johnny Castle), Nicole Scherzinger (Penny) and Debra Messing (Baby’s mother). Unlike The Wiz, Grease and other recent television musicals, ABC’s Dirty Dancing three hour remake won’t be live.

If you don’t remember Lisa from the original film, be sure to check out her shining moment below. Her “Hula Hana” rehearsal had me chuckling the first time I saw it.

Just like the original ABC series, the Full House revival was ravaged by critics. Didn’t matter however. Fuller House was a hit with fans. At least based on Twitter reaction, since Netflix doesn’t release ratings. You have to think, though, they must’ve been pretty good for the comedy to receive a second season renewal. Plenty people I know binge-watched the entire season over the weekend. It was cheesy but I loved every fromage moment.

With the renewal comes hope that the only holdouts, the Olsen twins, cave and make a cameo. Even in their absence, their presence was felt due to all the jokes at their expense mentioned during the episodes. Creator Jeff Franklin previously revealed, “I tried. We all tried to persuade them to come and play. They decided not to at this time. We’re hopeful at some point in the future, they may change their minds and reprise Michelle. We only need one of them!”

In other Fuller House-related news, Carly Rae Jepsen recently stopped by Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. The bubbly 30-year-old performed an unplugged rendition of the theme song, “Everywhere You Look.” Check it out below, along with Netflix’s Fuller House S2 video announcement.
