Just days after airing its eagerly awaited season 2 premiere, AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" has been renewed for a third season.
The zombie horror drama, a spinoff/prequel of AMC's "The Walking Dead," aired a tentative freshman season in 2015, which consisted of just six episodes. After receiving generally positive reviews, AMC increased the current season order to 15 episodes. The third season, which will air in 2017, marks the largest season order yet, consisting of 16 episodes.
In a statement about the show's renewal on Friday, April 15, AMC president Charlie Collier wrote (via The Hollywood Reporter), "What Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman have invented in 'Fear the Walking Dead' is to be applauded." more >>
CBS' award-winning legal/political drama series "The Good Wife" is bowing out for good in a matter of weeks.
The show's co-creators, Robert and Michelle King, were joined by cast members Julianna Margulies (Alicia Florrick), Matt Czuchry (Cary Agos), and Cush Jumbo (Lucca Quinn) at the show's Tribeca Film Festival panel on Sunday, April 17.
There, Margulies spoke about receiving the script for the series finale. According to the actress, she couldn't talk about the series finale to anyone after reading the script for the first time. Margulies said she was "emotionally confused" and had so many emotions about wrapping up her character, but after talking about it with her husband and reading the script for a fourth time (while sipping some wine sent by the Kings), she was finally able to digest it. more >>
Now that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) are in Paris, they seem worlds away from the horrors Jamie endured at the hands of Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) at Wentworth Prison.
Unfortunately, Claire has learned from his brother, Alexander Randall (Laurence Dobiesz), that Black Jack is still alive. Faced with the daunting task of letting Jamie know that his torturer did not die in the cattle stampede in season 1, Claire decides to keep the knowledge to herself in the meantime.
In a recent chat with The Hollywood Reporter, "Outlander" stars Balfe and Heughan spoke about the marital troubles their characters are going through in the show's recently debuted second season and about how Jamie will eventually conquer the demons that have been hounding him since his traumatizing experience with Black Jack. more >>
An important "Game of Thrones" character who was last seen in season 3 is returning to the popular HBO fantasy drama series in its upcoming sixth season.
Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye), a Red Priest of the Lord of Light and a celebrated warrior, was last seen wandering around with the Brotherhood Without Banners in season 3. In his last appearance in "Game of Thrones," he and his friend Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) handed Gendry (Joe Dempsie) over to Melisandre (Carice van Houten) in exchange for gold, infuriating Arya (Maisie Williams).
Though Thoros has not been seen in "Game of Thrones" since, he has been alluded to a couple of times. Arya included him in her "death list" in season 4 and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) quipped that a Red Priestess he spotted in Volantis in season 5 is better looking than Thoros. more >>
On his show "Real Time," comedian and HBO host Bill Maher said the policy of taxing things that are bad to get people to stop doing them should be extended to religion and "let's put one on Sunday school so they don't get stupid."
"If we levy taxes — sin taxes, they call them — on things that are bad to get people to stop doing them, why in Heaven's name don't we tax religion?" asked Maher toward the end of his show on Friday.
"A sexist, homophobic, magic act that's been used to justify everything from genital mutilation to genocide," he continued. "You want to raise the tax on tobacco so kids don't get cancer? Okay, but let's put one on Sunday school so they don't get stupid." more >>
Although the next season of AMC's "The Walking Dead" is still many months away, Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie in the series, has teased the season 7 premiere, saying that it will be "intense" and "explosive."
"I think there will be some answers right off the bat, and it will be very, very intense. And then we'll be exploring avenues and relationships that we haven't yet, but you'll definitely be taken on the roller coaster ride," the actress told E! News. "I mean, the season comes back with a pretty intense, explosive start."
It was only two weeks ago that the popular zombie apocalypse series aired its much-anticipated and much-hyped season 6 finale, which introduced the new villain Negan ("The Good Wife" actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and was supposed to show the death of a fan favorite character. But while "The Walking Dead" delivered on the first, it failed on the second, leaving viewers with a giant dangling cliffhanger. more >>
