better call saul season 3 trailer

At some point, early in its second season, Better Call Saul became as good as Breaking Bad. Series masterminds Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould pulled this off by refusing to let their Breaking Bad spin-off cater to people who just wanted more of the same. Instead, the series carved out its own unique identity and its own special voice.

You can’t quite see that voice in the new Better Call Saul season 3 trailer, which is more about snappy visuals and Breaking Bad connections than the weekly panic attacks associated with watching Jimmy McGill make one poor choice after another. But hey, the promise of more Better Call Saul is a great thing.

new preacher actors

I have my qualms with the first season of AMC’s Preacher, but for the most part, the series pulled off the impossible – it’s a show that felt an awful lot like Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s classic comic book series, even when it diverged from the story in a big way. Showrunner Sam Catlin and his team eschewed the aspects of the comic series that haven’t aged well and doubled down on the stuff that has aged beautifully. Namely, the characters, their relationships, and the way that dusty, Texas atmosphere mingles with so much blasphemous fantasy.

A group of new actors have joined the second season of the show, including Game of Thrones and Star Wars veterans. But the news stops there. We have no idea who they’re playing. So how about we crack open the comic series and take a guess?

‘The Night Manager’ Season 2 in the Works

the Night Manager season two

The BBC possibly isn’t finished with John le Carre‘s The Night Manager.

Bier confirmed scripts are being written for a follow-up season right now.

the walking dead characters

The characters who’ve survived so far in The Walking Dead comics have probably lived this long for a reason. Since Robert Kirkman’s black-and-white zombie comic started in 2003, quite a few prominent characters have been killed off in the zombie wasteland. The series is famous for some memorable death scenes. Season seven of the television series, which returns in less than two weeks, was even hyped up over the death of one character — a tease in the season six finale that polarized fans.

Kirkman says, at least in the comics, not to expect too many major deaths in the near future. Below, read what else he had to say about the fate of his characters and watch a promo for the second half of season seven of The Walking Dead.

Jon Hamm talks Mad Men finale

It was around season four when Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner imagined the final image of Don Draper. The satisfying finale allows viewers to interpret that last shot of Draper however they please. But the actor who played the hard-drinking, chain-smoking ad exec for so many wonderful years, Jon Hamm, doesn’t have the most positive interpretation of the character’s final moment.

Below, hear what Hamm recently had to say about the Mad Men finale (spoilers ahead).

The Walking Dead Movie

Right now The Walking Dead is in the middle of its seventh season, and it’s perhaps the most upsetting season for fans yet. The arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan is really shaking up every aspect of the show, and some fans haven’t been able to handle it. That’s not stopping the show from being just as popular, and the passion of fans just might result in the title heading to the big screen.

The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple was recently asked about the possibility of a movie ever coming to fruition, and he revealed that it’s a topic that has been discussed occasionally. But does that mean the idea has potential? Find out what he had to say about the jump, and also get the remaining episode titles and synopses for the rest of the new episodes this year, but beware of some spoilers. Read More »

walking dead ending

There is currently no end in sight for AMC’s The Walking Dead. Season eight has already been ordered, but earlier this year, AMC’s president said they want to keep the show going as long as Robert Kirkman‘s comic still provides enough material. Understandably, AMC has zero interest in ending The Walking Dead at the moment, but they also don’t know what the ending of the show is yet.
