lost revival

ABC is not going to heed any demands that “we have to go back!” At least, not for the time being.

But it turns out these rumors are nothing more than a black smoke monster in the wind, with ABC stating that it has no plans to return to the Island.

Watchmen HBO miniseries

In 2015, talk of a Watchmen miniseries involving director Zack Snyder began.

Dave Gibbons Discusses the Watchmen Miniseries

When it comes to HBO’s potential adaptation of Watchmen, artist Dave Gibbons “[knows] as much as the next person.” Gibbons was involved with director Zack Snyder‘s 2009 adaptation, making appearances and promoting the movie and he remains pleased with it. Gibbons fully supported the film, and it sounds like he’d do the same for the miniseries. The project is in very early stages, so the artist doesn’t know what the future holds, but he always thought Alan Moore‘s 12-issue story would work better as a show than a movie.

Below, read what Gibbons had to say about the Watchmen miniseries.

Damon Lindelof interview

Until the end, The Leftovers delivered the unexpected. Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta‘s HBO series grew into a show that defied or subverted all expectations. After the first season, which now feels like a complete contrast to the series finale, it felt like all bets were off.

Kevin Garvey Jr. (Justin Theroux) as a messiah? Matt Jamison’s (Christopher Eccleston) spiritual journey on a sex cruise? And then there’s Nora Durst’s (Carrie Coon) experiences in season 3. The Leftovers seemed like it could go anywhere it wanted and earn it. After an ambitious season 2, Lindelof and Perrotta took more chances with the final eight episodes. Big swings that led to one emotionally satisfying finale. It was a show so good that the Emmys almost completely ignored it.

In the first of an expansive, two-part interview, Lindelof talked to us about some of the choices made in the final season of The Leftovers.
