Fargo‘s second season premiered about a year and a half after its first season did, and Fargo‘s third season won’t arrive until 2017.

If you think about it for even two seconds, it’s incredible that Sterling Archer and his colleagues have survived as long as they have. Never mind the fact that their line of work (espionage, usually, but sometimes private investigation or the illegal drug trade) puts them in danger on a regular basis — these people are often impulsive and foolish and downright incompetent.
But they always live to fight another day, and now we know for sure they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. FX has just renewed Archer for another three seasons, taking the animated spy spoof all the way through season ten. Read More »

It’s been an up-and-down year for Fox’s X-Men franchise so far. Deadpool got 2016 off to a strong start with its record-breaking run, while X-Men: Apocalypse has proven to be a disappointment both critically and commercially.

Professor X.) Along with the announcement comes the first photo of Stevens in character, which you can see below. Read More »
