Twin Peaks isn’t just back — there’s more of it coming than anyone expected.
The return of Twin Peaks has already become a saga, with Showtime setting up a nine-episode third season to air in 2016, with David Lynch directing all episodes and co-writing with Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost. Then Lynch bailed on the series, reportedly over budget and deal issues. But Showtime worked things out with Lynch, and the director returned, just in time for Showtime to announce the third season had expanded from its original nine-episode order.
We didn’t know much more than that. What would be the final Twin Peaks season three episode count? And who else will return to the series now that Lynch is fully on board? During a convention appearance, Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn revealed some details. Notably, that the series order has doubled, and there’s a suggestion that Angelo Badalamenti, the musical voice of the show, is also coming back. Read More »

Back in March, we got our first look at AMC’s forthcoming sci-fi drama series Humans. The new series is based on the Swedish show Äkta människor, or Real Humans, and takes place in a world where humanoid robot servants are helping people in their everyday life. But as we’ve seen many times before, these creations won’t stay our servants for long.
Now a better look at the forthcoming series has arrived with a little bit of footage from the show that hits AMC in June. It’s nothing we haven’t seen from similar stories before, but with a cast that includes William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Gemma Chan and more, hopefully AMC has another hit show on their hands. Watch the second Humans teaser trailer below! Read More »
Back in April, a big chunk of 90s nostalgia was announced to be revived when we learned Netflix had ordered Fuller House, a television series sequel to the hit sitcom Full House. Pretty much everyone from the original series was confirmed to come back in some capacity for this new series, with the exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. While producers had hoped that the duo responsible for playing Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in the family, would make an appearance, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen.
