the exorcist tv show

When it was first announced that Fox was adapting The Exorcist into a new genre series, I was nervous. Did we need another movie-to-TV remake? Was there room for another demon-hunting show on network television? Was it even possible for another cutting edge horror series like Hannibal to grace network television? Thankfully, The Exorcist, now in its second season, proved all my doubts wrong.

Fox’s longform take on William Friedkin’s classic horror movie is boldly going beyond the usual “horror on television” template, with thrilling results. You really should be watch the Exorcist TV show.

the exorcist season 2

It was the last panel of New York Comic Con, but The Exorcist panel — consisting of actors Ben Daniels, Alfonso Herrera, Kurt Egylawan, John Cho, Zuleikha Robinson, with executive producer/writer Jeremy Slater and showrunner Sean Crouch—still commanded a packed room that was bursting with superfans of the small screen adaptation of the classic horror film. Despite the show’s shift to Friday nights, each and every audience member was clearly a dedicated fan (especially proven by how they raised the roof for each panelist announced on stage), and was psyched to see what they were going to reveal about the new season. Myself included. Just two episodes into the season, I can already tell that the show is moving into some interesting territory—especially with priests Tomas and Marcus (Herrera and Daniels) going rogue together.

x files season 11 trailer

The truth is out there, and Mulder and Scully are inching closer and closer to it in The X-Files season 11 trailer.

The first footage of the rebooted The X-Files (the first revival season premiered last year) screened at New York Comic-Con this weekend, and it teases a conclusion to the decades-long conspiracy that David Duchovny‘s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson‘s Dana Scully have been caught up in, as well as the culmination of the decades-long relationship between the two lovelorn FBI agents.

the simpsons game of thrones joke

The 29th season of The Simpsons premiered last night. Season 29. Goodness gracious.

Anyway, the episode takes place outside of the usual Simpsons canon (if you want to call this show’s sprawling, intentionally contradictory world that), transporting viewers to a fantasy realm populated by characters from the long-running animated series. And yes, there was a Game of Thrones joke. And yes, it was a Game of Thrones joke delivered through a very familiar Simpsons joke template. And yes, you can watch it right here.

The Simpsons Showrunner Interview

Every summer at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association, I catch up with Al Jean. The showrunner of The Simpsons is always dutifully there, as the show is renewed through season 30 and Fox execs have given every impression of wanting to keep it going. I still have new questions for Jean every year because I’ve watched The Simpsons since they spun off the Tracey Ullman Show shorts in 1989 and every year adds new developments in Springfield.

This interview for season 29 happened before the show let composer Alf Clauson go, oherwise I definitely would have asked about it. That’ll be in next year’s interview, but this interview covers another Simpsons milestone (they will have produced more episodes of television than Gunsmoke), the new Halloween episode and season 18 DVDs. The Simpsons returns Sunday, October 1 on Fox.
