It seems that Rumplestiltskin won't be the only one who gets to see more of Once Upon a Time's Belle in Season 2.

Once Upon a Time's favorite princess Belle will be appearing much more often on Season 2 of the ABC show. Emilie de Ravin (Lost) was just promoted to a series regular. Hopefully she won't end up locked in a tower again -- we like her a lot more than weepy Cinderella.

Hey, remember when the girls of Pretty Little Liars were convinced that Noel Khan was their mysterious "A" in Season 1? No? Well, apparently there will be a second Khan added to the cast to stir up some more drama -- Revenge's Robbie Amell will guest star as Noel's older brother Eric. Hopefully his appearance won't be just another red herring in the ever-complicated mystery.

Fringe fans will have to say goodbye to the show after its fifth and final season, but they will be saying goodbye to executive producer Jeff Pinkner even earlier. Pinkner, who has been on the show since Season 2, is leaving the show to pursue other projects.

Starting June 25, MTV will start a morning block called MTV's Retro Mania which will feature the TV shows Daria, Laguna Beach and The Hills. The block will be hosted by celebrity fans of the shows and will feature commentary by stars of the The Hills and Laguna Beach. It's awesome that Daria is getting some morning airtime (I, for one, would love to have breakfast with the Morgendorffers) but it's the three year old episodes of The Hills that have me wondering whether MTV has ever looked up the definition of the word "retro".

Drive director will be bringing the iconic film Barbarella to the small screen. While Jane Fonda does look awesome for her age, we doubt she'd be able to reprise her role as the scantily clad astronaut.

TBS has just acquired the off-network rights to the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls. The show is slated to air on TBS in 2015, which means that you have at least three more years before some of the beloved re-runs of Friends are replaced.

In news that will make your inner child fill with joy, it has just been announced that a Sesame Street film is officially in the works. Longtime Sesame Street writer Joey Mazzarino will be penning the film.
