Last week, Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost announced that new episodes of the cult series are being produced for Showtime. Twin Peaks isn’t slated to hit the schedule until 2016, but we’ve already begun to learn about some potential castings.
Showtime has set up The Affair with a title and a format that follows two people committing adultery. Regardless, it’s not really a drama that is simply about adultery. It’s more about memory, and how two people can look back and see events unfold in two very different ways.
This version of In the Heat of the Night, at least the pilot, will be written and directed by Tate Taylor, best known for 2011’s The Help and this year’s James Brown biopic Get On Up. We can assume this tale will skew a little darker than both of those films.
Details on the new episodes of the hit series are being kept under wraps right now, but we do know that Frost and Lynch will write the limited event series, which will be set 25 years after the events that occurred in ABC’s primetime drama in the early nineties. With subscription cable comes a whole new opportunity to get weird, but we’re hopeful that Twin Peaks will nod at its past as it moves forward into its future.
Showtime is already teasing the Season 2 return of the literary-minded horror series Penny Dreadful, which you can see in this video. It isn't set to premiere until next year, but can our lives even handle more Vanessa Ives?
I’m still having trouble believing that today isn’t just some extended lucid dream, with news dropping earlier that Showtime has ordered a new season of the classic drama Twin Peaks. While some of the series’ mysteries have remained unresolved for over two decades, we can take comfort in knowing how creators David Lynch and Mark Frost came to agree on returning to the surreal town for at least one more maddening journey.
Hopefully you are sitting down with some coffee that’s black as midnight on a moonless night. You’ll need it to process the information we are about to share with you. Twin Peaks is officially returning back to television via a limited event series. We have all the details, here.
While most of what we remember about these characters is still intact, they’re each under different strains and nothing is quite as it was. After two episodes, it is foolishly too soon to say that we’re in for a spectacular season, but here are three ways this quasi-reboot brings Homeland back to the dramatic forefront. And the biggest change between Seasons 3 and 4 is the top of the heap.
HBO and Showtime execs have recognized the appeal of on-demand streaming services, as evidenced by HBO Go’s Sunday night Internet implosions and Showtime Anytime's gradual rise in popularity, but those sites are still tied to consumers' TV services. Will we ever live in a world where Americans who don’t own a TV can watch True Detective on their own separate HBO Go account?
We’re still almost a month away from the Season 4 premiere of Showtime’s Homeland, but I’m already a complete lack of all things Nicholas Brody. And this full-length trailer is gloriously absent of the series' past. Except for that kid, of course.
Despite the casting changes leading into Season 7, the show has shown no signs of slowing. However, on Wednesday, the Nurse Jackie cast and crew beat Showtime to the punch by announcing that Season 7 will be the show’s last.
The schedule is a work in progress, and dates are subject to change as we head into the fall season. In the meantime, if there's a new or returning show you don't see on here, feel free to leave a comment and we'll see if we can dig up the date for you! We’ve also listed shows that are expected to premiere at midseason, so if your favorite show doesn’t have a date, yet, check there first!
Over the last few years, Showtime’s veteran programs, including Weeds and Dexter, have slowly finished their runs on the network. The good news is that the network has created a new programming lineup capable of filling the shoes of the old staples. This week, Showtime announced that a couple of its more recent programs have been renewed for another season at the subscription cable channel.
What’s better than an hour-long premiere of a new season of Homeland? Why, back-to-back brand new episodes of Showtime’s hit drama, of course. That network is making some scheduling changes to its fall lineup, and if you are a fan of Homeland or anticipating the premiere of the network’s new drama The Affair, everything’s coming up roses for you this Monday.
Luckily, creator and showrunner John Logan (Skyfall) has spent the better part of a decade creating this world in his mind, and he let Comic-Con fans know that Season 2 will be much larger, expanding some of those stories, while also bringing a familiar human character to head the antagonistic front.
