Lady Gaga (WENN.com)

Coming up in Primetime Television.

There may not be a new episode of “The Originals” during the week of November 18, but Soaps.com has details about a Lady Gaga special airing in its place, full season orders for a few freshman series, as well as episode teasers, a couple of FOX interviews, a possible reboot of a 1980s horror series, casting and more in our latest Primetime Dish column…

Almost Human:
Interview! Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with the FOX series’ executive producers J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman. When asked what makes them tick, as creative partners, Wyman joked, “I think it’s my singing voice,” to which Abrams chimed in, “I think I have to agree with Joel. I think that the fun of working with someone who loves the ‘what if’ and is able to imagine situations and characters that make you laugh as much as it makes you squirm because the ideas are so close to what’s possible. On ‘Fringe’, as crazy as things were, and it got pretty crazy, they were so often things that felt like, God, that just seems like something that might be happening right now. Then almost invariably you’d read about something within weeks or months that proved that out. It’s always been fun working with Joel and ‘Almost Human’ is no different.”

Arrow:
In the CW’s Wednesday November 20 8:00 PM episode titled “State V. Queen,” Oliver becomes concerned when Diggle and hundreds of people are infected by a mysterious illness. Vertigo is discovered in Diggle’s blood, which proves The Count has escaped from prison. As Moira goes on trial, ADA Adam Donner collapses in court with Vertigo symptoms, and The Count traps Felicity.

Beauty And The Beast:
Thanksgiving is celebrated in the CW’s November 18 9:00 PM episode titled “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” Cat plans to spend Thanksgiving with her father in order to get information on Vincent’s missions. When Tori and Gabe join Cat, secrets and true feelings are revealed, and Tess and JT encounter a Thanksgiving surprise of their own. In casting news… Elisabeth Rohm (“The Client List,” “One Life To Live’s” ex-Dorothy Hayes) will appear as a FBI agent in four episodes this season.

Interview! Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with the FOX series’ executive producer Stephen Nathan. When asked if they have any plans to bring Aldo or Danny back to the show, Nathan stated, “They will definitely reappear. Danny, we are working on that episode now. Again, this will be next year. This will, again, be probably in February, and it will be an episode which sort of teams Booth and Danny in a common cause, but also causes Booth to question Danny in a way that hopefully will be very surprising. That will be on whatever night Fox puts us on in January or February.”
