It might not be present at Comic-Con like its HBO siblings "Game of Thrones" and "True Blood," but "Boardwalk Empire" is still giving us reason to celebrate. HBO has announced that the third season of the Steve Buscemi-starring TV series will return to the network on September 16.

The press release issued by HBO promises that season three will continue chronicling "the life and times of 'Nucky' Thompson, the undisputed leader of Atlantic City" in 12 new episodes. But just how tenuous will Nucky's undisputed reign be this season? After the death of a certain character at the end of season two, it will be interesting to see where season three picks up.

Eastbound and Down

Talk about a true gift for America's birthday! In a move that came out of left field, "Eastbound and Down" has apparently been renewed for a fourth season.

Variety is reporting that HBO has ordered eight new episodes for a show that was only planned to have three seasons. The series aired its seemingly final episode back in April and managed to tie up most loose ends, but we're excited that star/co-creator Danny McBride and the rest of the team are coming back for more.

Considering HBO has a habit of cancelling shows before their time due to low viewership (we miss you, "Bored to Death"), McBride and his other co-creators Jody Hill and Ben Best should take this as quite a compliment. We'd like to know just what HBO had to do to convince them they should come back, especially based on some comments McBride made earlier this year.

Breaking Bad

We are a little less than two weeks away from the return of "Breaking Bad," and AMC has just debuted its first full clip from the fifth season.

While the video doesn't contain any major spoilers for the first episode, there are some glaring references to season four's finale, so if you haven't caught up, go watch that instead.

SPOILERS

The clip takes place in the aftermath of the nursing home explosion that took out Gus Fring and helped solidify Walter White's new status as a straight-up bad guy.

Check out the clip after the jump!

Elizabeth Mitchell

If you're a fan of "Lost," you're going to love this news.

We all loved to love Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet on the genre-changing mystery show, and now a new report has come out saying she'll be reteaming with "Lost" creator J.J. Abrams on one of his many, many upcoming projects. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Mitchell is going to be joining the cast of Abrams' new NBC show, "Revolution."

According to EW, Mitchell will be playing "the compassionate and concerned long-absent mother of the show’s two young leads, Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny (Graham Rogers), who set off on a dangerous cross-country journey." As "Breaking Bad" fans, we feel morally obligated to mention that this show also stars Giancarlo Esposito. It doesn't sound like there are any supernatural or sci-fi elements at play here, but then again "Lost" started out as a show about a group of people stranded on an island after a plane crash.

Damon Lindelof

Shortly before the release of his most recent film project, "Prometheus," Damon Lindelof signed a three-year deal with Warner Bros. TV and officially announced his full-time return to the medium.

Now Deadline is reporting that the former "Lost" executive producer has his next television project lined-up, and he's heading to cable for the first time.

Lindelof is developing "The Leftovers," based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, for HBO. He will be teaming with the book's author, who will co-write and executive produce, to tell the story of the rapture and the people left behind after the cataclysmic event.

Breaking Bad

"You're a time bomb, tick, ticking away, and I have no intention of being around for the boom."

These are the ominous words of the always wise Mike Ehrmantraut from the new season of "Breaking Bad." The line is the centerpiece of a new trailer (via The Playlist) that teases the fifth season of the show.

SPOILER AHEAD

Thankfully, Mike wasn't around for the boom that took out big boss Gus at the end of season four, leaving his allegiances up in the air. From the sound of this trailer, the muscle might be a little too smart to throw his hat in with Heisenberg.

Check out the new trailer after the jump.

Breaking Bad

When Season 4 of "Breaking Bad" ended last year, it was difficult to guess where the show was headed next. What was not so difficult to see was that things were probably going to go poorly.

Giving us our first look at the Season 5 premiere, a new set of photos gives us a hint of what's to come for Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

The photos come courtesy of E! Online, and return Walter, Jesse, and the viewers to a familiar location that hasn't been seen recently.

Check out the new photos from the fifth season of "Breaking Bad" after the jump!

Breaking Bad

In a new interview with the LA Times, "Breaking Bad" star and supporting player in every movie of the last two years, Bryan Cranston spoke about the possibility that 16 hour-long episodes might not be enough for Vince Gilligan to wrap up the story of Walter White and his little meth business.

Previously, the show runner openly talked about fearing that he wouldn't have enough story to fill out the rest of the order, but now it seems the opposite may be true.

Interestingly, talk of extending the life of "Breaking Bad" has led Cranston to admit that he's open to the possibility of a movie.

Breaking Bad

This post will discuss plot points from the previous season of "Breaking Bad."

The explosive demise of former drug king Gustavo Fring only seems like it happened a few short weeks ago, but that flurry of water cooler conversations was last October. We are now less than a month away from the beginning of the end for Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

That being the case, promotional materials for part one of the final season have begun to trickle out, and today, three sets of images popped on the web. The photos comes from Vulture, EW.com, and TVGuide, and frankly don't help us with our painful need for more Heisenberg.
