It’s going to be a while before we see Guillermo del Toro‘s next movie, which hasn’t even started shooting yet. But in the meantime, he’s got a new small-screen project coming our way, the Netflix animated series Trollhunters.

Curb Your Enthusiasm

HBO has some pretty, pretty, pretty good news for us today. The network has officially announced a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, nearly five years after it last aired an episode. The news doesn’t come entirely as a surprise — it was just a few days ago that actor J.B. Smoove was telling press Larry David wanted to bring back the show — but now those plans look much firmer.  Read More »

Terriers revival

Beloved shows never really die in this day and age. They just enter a limbo state, leaving showrunners and stars to spend the rest of their lives fielding questions from fans about possible revivals and/or movie sequels. A lucky few even get resurrected, like Arrested Development or Gilmore Girls or Full House, keeping hope alive for fans of the rest.

At a recent event, producers Ted Griffin and Shawn Ryan addressed the question of reviving Terriers, their wonderful but tragically short-lived drama starring Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James. The short answer is that they’ve talked about it — but the long answer is that they’ve have several hoops to jump through first.  Read More »

no one recap

Every season of Game of Thrones has a weak spot or two, a few episodes where the wheel-spinning becomes a little obvious and transparent. While important things occurred in “No One,” this was undeniably the slowest episode of the show’s sixth season, an hour that pumped the brakes on plot in a big way. To be fair, the episode responded by providing more than its fair share of character development and humor, but it’s fairly obvious that this is intended to be the calm before the storm, the hour where a lot of business gets handled before all hell breaks loose next week.

Let’s sort through that business and discuss what went down.

Big Mouth Animated Series

Comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney have been friends and collaborators for a long time. In addition to having a history in sketch comedy, the two also teamed up for a series of sketches on The Kroll Show called “Oh, Hello,” which eventually became a stage show that toured the country this year. Now they’re teaming up again.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney will voice the two lead characters in Big Mouth, a new animated series that Netflix just picked up. The series won’t be following their “Oh, Hello” alter egos Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland (seen above), but instead will see the two comedians as teenagers Nick and Andrew as they have various adventures while going through puberty.

Kiefer Sutherland 24 Legacy

In January of next year, the midseason brings the debut of 24: Legacy, the series reboot of FOX’s action adventure series that once starred Kiefer Sutherland as Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer. The original iteration of the series was revealed to be over in 2010 with eyes set on a feature film adaptation, though that never came to fruition. But three years later, Jack Bauer returned to TV for the event series revival 24: Live Another Day, which turned out to be his last outing as the rogue hero. Or was it?

While speaking at the ATX TV Festival in Austin, TX, executive producer Howard Gordon said that he thinks Jack Bauer still has some life in him, and there’s a chance he could even appear at some point in 24: Legacy. Find out more about a possible Kiefer Sutherland 24 Legacy appearance below. Read More »

Mallrats TV Series

It’s been over a year since we heard that Kevin Smith was looking to return to the world of Mallrats with a sequel to his 1995 comedy, which starred Jason Lee and Jeremy London as a couple of meandering twentysomethings trying to figure out their place in the world. The film bombed at the box office over 20 years ago, but it’s a favorite among Kevin Smith’s fans, and it fits right in with the rest of the movies in his View Askew-niverse.

However, we haven’t heard any updates on the sequel since the cast was rounded up and a mall was found for production. It was meant to be shot towards the end of last year before Clerks 3, but that clearly didn’t happen, so what’s going on? Kevin Smith recently gave an update on Mallrats 2, and revealed that it has now been turned into a Mallrats TV series with 10 episodes planned. Find out how this came to be after the jump. Read More »
