Boy Meets World on Hulu

Hulu had a big night at the Emmys last month by taking home the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, beating Netflix to the punch with their series A Handmaid’s Tale. While Hulu has every intention of continuing to expand their original programming slate, they’re also dipping back into the library of nostalgic TV from the 1990s.

Sitcoms like Full House, Family Matters and Step by Step were recently made available on Hulu in their entirety, and now even more of the shows from ABC’s beloved TGIF line-up from the 1990s are coming to the streaming service. Boy Meets World, Home Improvement and the positively goofy series Dinosaurs are all available on Hulu now. Read More »

stranger things season 2 shadow monster

After what feels like a long wait, we’re finally less than a month away from Netflix’s highly-anticipated Stranger Things season 2 – or Stranger Things 2, as series creators Duffer Brothers would prefer we call it. They’re leaning hard on the whole “the second season feels like a movie sequel” vibe. And since every good sequel ups the ante in some way from the original, they’re doing the same: if you thought the Demogorgon was bad news, wait until you get a load of the “shadow monster” that will appear this season.

Game of Thrones 15 million

We’ve written about how each of the episodes in Game of Thrones upcoming eighth season may be 90 minutes long, and now it sounds like HBO is giving showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss a big enough budget to make sure the show goes out with a bang. A new report indicates that each of the show’s final six episodes will cost $15 million, but where does that place Thrones on the overall list of the most expensive TV shows ever made?

gerald's game stephen king

Stephen King has been terrifying audiences since the 1970s, penning one best-selling horror novel after another, his name becoming synonymous with horror fiction in the process. Film and TV adaptations of King’s work have been prevalent just as long as he’s been publishing it, but recently there seems to be a Stephen King boom. More and more King-related projects are finding their way to the big and small screen. And that was before the adaptation of King’s It raked in boffo box office. With It making all that dough, expect even more Stephen King adaptations to be announced soon.

To help you keep track of all the upcoming King projects, either completed or in development, I’ve compiled this handy list. It’s worth noting that not all of these films will ever see the light o day. Indeed, some of them have already entered the infernal halls of development hell, and who knows when they shall ever escape. Then again, now that King is big business at the box office, there’s a good chance titles that have been stuck in development hell for ages will suddenly find themselves fast tracked.

Without further adieu, here is every upcoming Stephen King adaptation.

Jack Ryan TV show teaser

Update: A new Jack Ryan teaser has been released by Amazon ahead of the full teaser trailer premiere at New York Comic Con.

Shows about spies have been a near-constant presence on television since the medium’s early days, and while we’ve seen properties like Get Smart and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. make the jump to the big screen in recent years, Amazon is about to reverse that trend by bringing one of cinema’s biggest spies to TV. The company has just released the first brief teaser for Jack Ryan, based on the Tom Clancy-created character that’s appeared in five movies so far, and you can check it out below. But if you’re looking for your first glimpse at The Office star John Krasinski locked and loaded as the title character, you’ll have to wait just a little while longer.
