Fort Rock season 1 got here to a considerably unsatisfying finish this week, wrapping up some questions whereas leaving others unanswered. Hulu has already gone forward and renewed the present for a second season, and in the previous, creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason have confirmed that is an anthology collection – every season will inform a totally totally different story. Which will sound like the surviving season 1 characters gained’t return subsequent season, however based on Shaw and Thomason, something is feasible. Talking with Leisure Weekly, the creators teased the risk of returning characters:
“Part of what we always set out to do from the beginning is tell a new story each season, to see things we haven’t seen before from the point of view of characters we haven’t met before in any season. That said, I think there’s something really terrific with the way Steve handles his anthology and his universe — you see Father Callahan in Salem’s Lot and then you bump up against him again in a huge way in The Dark Tower. The pleasure of finding your way back to stories or characters you’ve seen before in unexpected ways is a huge, exciting advantage of this series. I think it’s something that we can do, and allow it to be an anthology but still embrace stories and characters that we love. It just may not happen in the way that one might expect.”
From the look of this, I’d guess that if season 1 characters return, they’ll possible be returning for cameos in some capability – not as a part of the major narrative. However we will see.
American Horror Story is coming again for a brand-new season that may in all probability begin off robust and then instantly disappoint everybody, identical to nearly each different season. For now, although, the hype is excessive for American Horror Story: Apocalypse, which mixes parts from earlier seasons Homicide Home and Coven. You possibly can watch a brand new preview of the upcoming season forward of it’s September 12, 2018 debut. And naturally, the trailer ends with Emma Roberts saying “I bet you’d thought you’d seen the last of me,” as a result of that’s what the followers need.
Billy on the Road, the very humorous collection during which Billy Eichner screams at individuals on metropolis streets, is coming again…in net type. The brand new net collection model of Billy on the Road will function Emma Stone, Tiffany Haddish, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kate McKinnon, and extra. “After 5 seasons of the TV series, I knew I wanted to set the show aside in order to create some time in my schedule to pursue other projects,” Eichner stated, by way of Deadline. “Now that those are taking shape, I’m truly thrilled we’ve found a way to bring Billy on the Street back that makes so much sense for this particular show. As we all know, this is a very divisive, anxiety ridden time and I hope these new segments – featuring the most stunning roster of guests we’ve ever had – give people a small burst of joy in their timelines while allowing me to comment on culture and the world at large in the unique way this show allows me to.” The brand new episodes will probably be obtainable on all of Eichner’s social media platforms, the Billy on the Road Youtube channel, Humorous Or Die’s social media pages and FunnyOrDie.com
Prepared for an additional Regulation & Order spin-off? The newest entry in Dick Wolf’s ever-expanding Regulation & Order universe is Regulation & Order: Hate Crimes. Per Deadline, the new collection “will be introduced as a planted spinoff from SVU, with the first incarnation of the new unit appearing in the latter part of the upcoming season of the Mariska Hargitay-starring series.” The present is “based on New York’s actual Hate Crimes Task Force, the second oldest bias-based task force in the U.S. The unit, which pledges to uphold a zero tolerance policy against discrimination of any kind, works under the NYPD’s real Special Victims Unit and often borrows SVU’s detectives to assist in their investigations.” That is clearly a extraordinarily delicate topic, and hopefully the collection will discover a approach to cowl it in an non-exploitative method.
Above you’ll see not one however two behind-the-scenes seems at The Deuce season 2. One focuses on Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s character Candy, while the other has the cast and crew talking about he era of ‘porn chic’, no matter that’s. The collection, created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, “explores the rough-and-tumble world at the pioneering moments of what would become the billion-dollar American sex industry.” I’ll confess that whereas I really like each Simon and Pelecanos’ work, I’ve but to start out watching The Deuce. I’ve heard excellent issues, although. The second season is now airing on HBO.

By some means, a reasonably large Simpsons continuity error went principally unnoticed for 23 years. Above, Matt Selman, a producer on the present, factors out that in the season 6 episode “And Maggie Makes Three”, a portrait of Maggie Simpson may be glimpsed in the background. The issue: this episode is all about Maggie’s start, and in the scene in query, Marge continues to be pregnant with the youngest member of the Simpson household. I’m positive somebody, someplace, observed this earlier than, however now the error has gone viral, so we will all sit again and giggle at it, whereas remembering an excellent long-ago time when The Simpsons was nonetheless a great present, and not no matter it’s at the moment.
Right here’s a reasonably nifty “Kaleidoscope” trailer for The Walking Lifeless season 9. There’s no actual footage right here, however quite a trendy take a look at all the characters standing round wanting cool. AMC realizes that it doesn’t matter what, you’re going to observe this present, in order that they don’t have to trot out a bunch of latest footage. That stated, the new season goes to result in some massive modifications. Star Andrew Lincoln might be leaving this season, together with Lauren Cohan. The present will doubtless stagger on, although, like a zombie wandering throughout an apocalyptic panorama. Regardless of dwindling scores, The Walking Lifeless stays successful for AMC, and they in all probability don’t need to let it go anytime quickly. The Walking Lifeless season 9 debuts October 7, 2018.
HBO has renewed two of their exhibits: Ballers and Insecure. Ballers, aka 21st Century Arli$$, stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and focuses on “the glamorous and often cutthroat world of pro football through a group of past and present players striving to stay in the game,” with Johnson enjoying “ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players.” Insecure, starring Issa Rae, “follows the friendship of two black women as they deal with their own real-life flaws while attempting to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.” This will probably be Ballers‘ fifth season, and Insecure‘s fourth.
Teen sleuth Nancy Drew is getting her personal CW collection. Deadline reviews the collection is “centered on 18-year-old Nancy Drew in the summer after her high school graduation. Nancy thought she’d be leaving her hometown for college, but when a family tragedy holds her back another year, she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation — and along the way, she uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined.” I’m guessing that since that is on the CW, they’ll be going for a Riverdale-like environment right here. That is truly one in every of two totally different Nancy Drew tasks in the works. A film starring It‘s Sophia Lillis can also be on the horizon.
Behold this friggin’ superior new poster for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The brand new Netflix collection provides a horror aspect to the character of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, with creepy outcomes. Kiernan Shipka performs the younger witch who finds herself dealing with a darkish selection on her 16th birthday. This poster guidelines, people. Hopefully the collection lives as much as it. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres October 26 on Netflix.
I’ve by no means heard anybody speak about watching the TV collection Gomorrah, however somebody needs to be, as a result of the present is now in its 4th season. The TV collection is “a portrait of the brutal Neapolitan crime organisation the Camorra, as seen through the eyes of Ciro Di Marzo, the obedient and self- confident right-hand man of the clan’s godfather, Pietro Savastano.” Now, a Gomorrah prequel film is in the works, with Marco D’Amore, who stars on the present, set to direct. The movie known as The Immortal, and based on Selection, it’ll “delve into the origins” of D’Amore’s character Ciro. That is clearly excellent news for followers of Gomorrah, wherever they’re.
A Rick and Morty pop-up bar virtually opened in Washington, D.C., till Cartoon Community stepped in and stated, “No.” The Wubba Lubba Dub PUB was initially set to open in August and run by way of October, however since this was a fan-creation and not formally sanctioned by Cartoon Community, the community wasn’t having it. Not solely that, however Cartoon Community additionally insisted that each one of the fixtures and paintings in the pub wanted to be destroyed. In an try and make the better of a nasty state of affairs, the creators of the pub introduced in n heavy metallic band GWAR to actually wreck the joint on September 6. The band confirmed up and smasdh every little thing to smithereens, launching a brand new pop-up bar in the course of. Listed here are the particulars, by way of Washingtonian:
One part of the three-bar area will reopen as Gwar PUB (Pop-Up Bar), that includes greater than 30 years of the Richmond-based band’s real-life stage props and costumes. Not conversant in Gwar? “It’s a kind of sci-fi, horror, comedy show with metal and a touch of Damien Hirst,” Brown explains. Members of the band will make cameos on opening night time. The pop-up will run by means of Oct. 31, when there can be a particular Gwar Halloween get together.
