Release the direwolves.

HBO released the first trailer for Game of Thrones's second season. Mark your calendars -- the countdown to April officially begins today.

Cougar Town fans, there's no need to worry... yet. Although ABC didn't include Cougar Town on its midseason schedule, it should be back in March, with a smaller episode order -- 15, instead of 22. But it's supposed to have six seasons and a movie!

In other ABC midseason news, Man Up is probably a goner, considering ABC hasn't ordered any additional episodes. Body of Proof received three more episodes, bringing it to a full season. Pan Am fans might want to start campaign similar to Community's, however -- ABC gave no word on whether the series would be picked up for a full season (and with Mad Men around the corner, the '60s are getting pretty crowded).

American Horror Story's December 21 season finale was cut from two hours to 90 minutes. Good luck trying to wrap up all those storylines with 30 minutes less, Murphy and Falchuk -- you definitely need it.

Kelly Overton (The Ring Two) and Louis Herthum (The Last Exorcism) will both guest star on the next season of True Blood as werewolves, and possibly series regulars. Based on their similar past work, is True Blood going for a (more) sinister theme?

Elisabeth Shue will replace Marg Helgenberger on CSI. After Helgenberger exits in January, Shue will play a CSI fresh out of anger management that was possibly fired by D.B. Russell. A blonde for a blonde -- good job on diversity, CSI.

Better put some gas in the staircar, because the Bluths are back. Netflix picked up the new season of Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz announced he was hoping to make last month, with new episodes appearing early 2013... Or so they say.

VH1 picked up Mama Drama, a reality show that takes five moms who refuse to grow up and throw them in a house with their daughters to see how their relationships withstand the time together. We'd prefer My Big Friggin' Wedding Season 2, but whatever.

Syfy is developing Ghost Ghirls (yes, it's supposed to be spelled like that) a paranormal procedural spoof of shows like Medium and Ghost Whisperer from co-creator and executive producer Jack Black. As long as he's not actually acting in it, we should be okay.
