The Killing season two and weekly wrap

The Killing is back tonight at 8 pm ET with a two-hour season premiere. Caprica and BSG folks who are definitely returning this season include Richard Harmon, Brian Markinson, Michelle Forbes and Callum Keith Rennie.

Andrew Airlie will also be recurring as "Dr. Madigan," and Kacey Rohl and Tahmoh Penikett might also make an appearance, but I haven't seen anything that would confirm this. TV Equals has a clip and the promotional photos from the premiere.

Also back tonight with a second season, Game of Thrones (9 pm). HBO has announced that the trailer for the new season of True Blood will be shown before the premiere. Let's see if they give us a first look at Christopher Heyerdahl's character.

Hell on Wheels: The Complete First Season will be out on DVD on May 15. Spoiler TV has the details. Based on some audition pages released last week, the Swede will definitely be back in the second season.

Elsewhere, Ron Moore has signed a new two-year deal with Sony Pictures TV. Deadline has the report.

Magda Apanowicz has a new project in the works, The 12 Disasters of Christmas, which will air on Syfy toward the end of the year. She posted a photo from the set on Twitter the other day. Here is the synopsis:
It's Christmas Eve when an ominous dark star appears in the sky; could this star be a sign that Judgment Day is near? When massive earthquakes and natural disasters tear apart cities, it seems that the day of reckoning is upon us -- and now a small band of heroes must come together to save the world!
Ben Cotton showed up in a couple of things on Friday. He guest starred in Fairly Legal 2x03 "Bait & Switch." The episode will probably be available on Hulu one of these weeks. And he appeared in the first episode of True Justice, which aired on ReelzChannel.

Zak Santiago will also be appearing on Fairly Legal this season, in episode 2x11, "Borderline."

KGW has a new interview with Sasha Roiz, aired before the last episode of Grimm:

A couple of new interviews with Scott Porter showed up this week. Zap2it caught up with him at the College Television Awards and got some spoilers for the season finale of Hart of Dixie (hit the link for the interview). And Starcam talked to him at A Night at Sardi's (Alzheimer's Association event):

MTV News talked to Bear McCreary about The Walking Dead:
First off, how ahead of the action is McCreary with regard to when he knows who lives and dies?

“Well, I can read the scripts. I try not to because I like my initial reaction to be the same as the fans," he told MTV News recently. "If I’m watching an episode and I know a character is going to die, it discolors my experience. If I don’t, and I’m just watching it, and its raw and I get to feel that emotion when I see it happen, it helps give me ideas. With that said, it’s almost impossible not to know, because when you’re talking to people, you just kind of find out."

Michael Rymer's Face to Face will have its New York premiere at the Soho Film Festival on April 14. You can get tickets here.

Aleks Paunovic tweets that The Hostage, the short film he did with Tahmoh Penikett a couple of years ago, will soon be released to the masses.

Mark Verheiden announced that he is working on Hemlock Grove, a new show that will be released exclusively on Netflix early next year. Here are the first details (more at the link):
"Hemlock Grove," a gripping tale of murder, mystery and monsters set in a ravaged Pennsylvania steel town, starring Famke Janssen and Bill Skarsgard and produced by Gaumont International Television, will be available for Netflix members to watch instantly, beginning early in 2013.

"Hemlock Grove" starts with the body of a young girl, mangled and murdered in the shadow of the former Godfrey steel mill. Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a biotech facility owned by the former steel magnates. Others believe the killer could be Peter, a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, who tells his classmates he's a werewolf. Or it could be Roman (Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), the otherworldly beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.
And Spoiler TV has another Falling Skies featurette:
