After what seems like forever, Seth McFarlane's outer-space show is finally back, with a more dramatically-focused third season. We speak to McFarlane, producer Brannon Braga, Scott Grimes (Lieutenant Malloy) and effects bod Brooke Noska – but still don't quite work up the courage to ask if they've ever heard of a singing green duck…

John Wyndham's classic 1957 novel (previously adapted for the big screen as Village Of The Damned) has now been turned into a seven-part TV series for Sky. We visit the set and try not to get mind-controlled by creepy kids as we speak to writer David Farr, star Max Beesley and producer Robert Cheek.

The boundary-pushing superhero show looks set to surpass itself in season three by taking on the "Herogasm" arc from the original comics. We chat orgies and toxic masculinity with showrunner Eric Kripke and new cast member Jensen Ackles. 

And that's not all, features wise! We also chat with Angus MacLane, writer/director of Toy Story spinoff Lightyear; profile fantasy novelist JM Miro (aka Steven Price); and get Holly Black to fill in our author questionnaire.
