Fargo tv show logo

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. And assuming we ever get a Fargo season four, the wait might get even longer. Series creator Noah Hawley says he may take a page out of the Louie playbook and just ignore the calendar, delaying new seasons of Fargo until he gets a really good idea for another one.  Read More »

Archer renewed

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 »

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 »

Legion TV series

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. But here’s another spot of good news for all you mutant lovers: FX has just given a series order to Legion, an X-Men TV spinoff from Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley.

Dan Stevens, of Downton Abbey and The Guest fame, plays David Haller, “a troubled young man who may be more than human.” (Fans of the X-Men comics might know the character as the son of Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X.) Along with the announcement comes the first photo of Stevens in character, which you can see below.  Read More »

Steve Jobs

Danny Boyle crossed over to the small screen with Babylon in 2014, and it looks like he’s eager to come back for more. Even as he preps his next movie, Trainspotting 2, he’s scored a ten-episode order from FX for Trust, a based-on-a-true-story limited series about the Getty family (as in Getty Oil, the Getty Museum, and Balthazar Getty). Many more details about the Danny Boyle FX series below.  Read More »

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson

More details on American Crime Story season 2 after the jump.  Read More »
