The fifth season of "American Horror Story" titled "Hotel" is on its way. The void caused byJessica Lange's departure is being filled with tons of new characters and actors, as well as seemingly graphic scenes, based on the teasers of what is awaiting fans this season.
One of the interesting character dynamics would have to be between American Horror Story: Hotel (AHS) veteran Kathy Bates and new main actor Matt Bomer who guest starred in only one episode last season. According to Cartermatt, the two would play mother and son. This season, Bates will be playing Iris, Hotel Cortez's manager and mother to Donovan, who will be played by Bomer. Bomer is reportedly going to be the countess' (Lady Gaga) lover and she will be madly in love with him. However, she will infect him with a kind of blood virus that will make him thirst for blood. Although it is confirmed that he will not be a vampire, it can be said that he will possess this similar characteristic.
Apparently, Bates' character would only be working at the hotel to look over his son. The 67-year-old actress shared, "Iris is overprotective with a capital O, especially now since her son is ill. She wants to be there every day to make sure he's all right, and she's very controlling that way." Many hope that her character will stick around until the end this season unlike in the last; however, character fates are always uncertain when it comes to AHS. more >>
The return of "How to Get Away with Murder" is definitely one of the most-awaited events on TV this fall. After a very successful first season, many got hooked on the show and can't wait to see how Annalise Keating, played by Viola Davis, and the infamous Keating 5, will handle the consequences of all their actions.
Davis recently had an interview with Deadline, in which she was asked about any updates on the show and she replied, "One thing I can share with you is it starts off with a bang." She also added, "A lot of the mysteries will be solved and answered, and then absolutely a new one will be presented. It's just so complicated and fascinating, and that happens in the first episode." One of the mysteries to be solved that she might be referring to is Rebecca Sutter's (Katie Findlay) death, which was the huge cliff-hanger last season. Davis also confirms that Rebecca will again be seen next season but only as part of flashbacks.
One of the big news about the show is the addition of a new character. Variety reports that Amy Okuda has been cast in a recurring role this season. However, as to what this role will be like, no details have been confirmed. It is no surprise that her identity is not being revealed as show creator Shonda Rhimes is keeping everything under wraps as much as possible. more >>
"Longmire" is all set to return for its fourth season on Netflix this time. Not only is the series back with a vengeance but it also appears that it will be the most exciting season yet, as seen in the official trailer recently released.
Neflixlife posted the video and it seems that Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) is more focused than ever in tracking down the killers of his wife. His journey in searching for the killer will lead Longmire's character astray as he is likely to start succumbing to his darker impulses. In the trailer, it can be assumed Henry Standing Bear, played by Lou Diamond Phillips, will be trying to stop Longmire from completely turning back from his values. However, Longmire will refuse to be hindered by anyone feeling that his second chance to live should be dedicated to revenging his wife's death.
From the trailer, it can already be assumed that there will be a lot of fights, and it could be of Longmire against the authorities and his own friends as they try to stop him from doing something he may regret. more >>
In a recent sneak peek of the reality television series "Teen Mom 2," the drama continues now just between the women and their ex-boyfriends, but also between their exes and their mothers. According to a recent update on Latin Post, Leah Messer's mother had a tense moment with Corey Simms, Leah's ex and father of twins Alliannah and Aleeah Simms.
Leah had recently left Corey after she went into a rehab facility and left the care of their daughters to Corey. In the scene, Messer's mother was talking to Corey about when she was going to pick up her granddaughters from their house. She also told Corey of her plans to bring the twins to visit their mom during Mother's Day, which did not go very well with Corey. He then asks Messer's mom where she was taking the girls, to which she replies, "I'd really rather not disclose that, Corey." Apparently, this was not an acceptable answer for him, because he then said, ""I really don't want my kids going somewhere I don't know where they are."
With Messer's mom trying to reason her way out of the conversation, Corey answers by saying that it was Leah who had left her kids to go into rehab and since it was her choice, he was left to be the parent for the twins, which for him meant that he was the only one making decisions about their welfare. The scene ends with grandma not looking very pleased. The next episode will be bringing with it the continuing drama between her and Corey. more >>
