mr. robot season three

Last year season two of Mr. Robot appeared more divisive than season one. After the popularity of its first season, though, it’s natural Sam Esmail‘s USA drama wouldn’t match everyone’s expectations. Plus, the twist midway through season two was destined to polarize. Whether the reveal ended up working or not can be debated, but it was still one of the many bold choices made with season two.

USA Network has announced a Mr. Robot season 3 premiere date: the series returns for its third season this October. Below, learn more about Mr. Robot season 3 and who just got promoted to a series regular.

Boomerang Subscription Service

When I was growing up in the ’90s, channels like Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network were gaining popularity and figuring out exactly what they wanted to be in the rapidly expanding world of cable television. The result was plenty of experimental cartoons that maybe shouldn’t have been expressly for kids (such as Ren & Stimpy and Johnny Bravo), but that also meant that there were classic cartoons from decades past that were finding traction with the children of parents who grown up with them a generation before.

In recent years, as each of those networks has expanded their reach of original programming, going so far as to have spin-off channels like Teen Nick and Disney XD. Sadly, this means classic cartoons have gone by the wayside, and there hasn’t been an easy way for those who want to watch shows like Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones and more. But that’s about to change with the new Boomerang subscription service.

Fargo season 3

It seems like every other day is bringing us another artful teaser for Fargo season 3. I’m definitely not complaining, as the series is one of my favorite shows of all time and it has only had two seasons. The latest Fargo season 3 teaser trailer follows Carrie Coon as Sheriff Gloria Burgle, who somehow comes across an air conditioning unit in the middle of a blizzard. You can watch it for yourself below.

David Farr likely isn’t returning to write the second season of The Night Manager.

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?

Glenn Howerton Leaving It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

The FX comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia isn’t much of a serial TV program. Each episode is mostly self-contained, and there is microscopic evidence of any continuity between episodes with the exception of some passing references to past shenanigans and a couple recurring characters who seem to get worse over time (like Rickety Cricket). Plus, the gang doesn’t really learn any real lessons from all of their despicable behavior and just keep doing more awful junk.

However, the recent 12th season finale of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia threw a couple of curveballs at longtime fans. But just in case some of you fans haven’t watched the season finale yet, we’ll leave the spoilers for after the jump. Read More »

game of thrones season 7 premiere

If HBO wants to be a big ‘ol showboat with how they reveal the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere date, they have earned that right. The wildly popular fantasy series has become the cable network’s flagship series. It’s less of a show than a cultural event, the thing that everyone watches and the thing that inspires a dozen think pieces every week. It’s the rare show that has actually entered the cultural lexicon. Call a politician a Lannister and many, many people will know exactly what you’re trying to say.

Anyway, HBO was a big ‘ol showboat with how they revealed the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere date: they put a screen inside a massive block of ice and slowly melted it with what looks like an offscreen flamethrower…er, dragon. They streamed this on Facebook. Thousands of people watched. Eventually, the date was revealed.
