channel zero cancelled

I suppose this was inevitable, but it still stings a little. After four creepy seasons, Syfy has cancelled the excellent, but under-watched, anthology series Channel Zero. While the series had fans (myself included), it failed to generate the same amount of buzz as American Horror Story. Now, it’s over. One can hope that now that with Channel Zero cancelled by Syfy, another network – or streaming service – might pick it up. But in the meantime, we’ll have to be content with the four memorable seasons that we were able to see.

space force tv series

Donald Trump’s Space Force idea sounded like (and still sounds like) a joke, so making a Space Force comedy series only seems fair. Netflix will launch Space Force to series soon, reuniting Steve Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels in the process. The show will be a workplace comedy focusing on the people who have been tasked with making Trump’s goofy-as-hell Space Force idea a reality.

homecoming season 2

If you were hoping to see Julia Roberts in Homecoming season 2, I have some bad news. While Roberts will remain an executive producer on the fantastic Amazon series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, she won’t be returning to play her season 1 character Heidi Bergman. This is a bit disappointing, as Roberts turned in a wonderful performance in season 1.

black earth rising trailer

I bet you didn’t see this coming: Netflix has a new original series! Of course, I’m just funning – Netflix always has a new original series these days. The streaming giant has more or less given up on adding other people’s movies and TV shows to their lineup, and are instead all-in on creating their own original content. Their latest is Black Earth Rising, a new limited series starring Michaela Coel and John Goodman. The series blends personal character drama with thriller undertones, resulting in something unique. Watch the Black Earth Rising trailer below.

conversations with a killer

Serial killer Ted Bundy is the focus of the latest Netflix original, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. The streaming service has had great success with true crime documentaries, but this looks different. For one thing, there’s no mystery to solve here. Instead, the docuseries features never-before-heard interviews with Bundy himself. Watch the Conversations with a Killer trailer below.

Step aside, Robert Downey Jr. – there’s a new Perry Mason in town, and it’s The Americans star Matthew Rhys.

Downey was all set to play the fictional defense attorney in a movie several years ago, but that project morphed into a limited series at HBO. Now the show is finally going to happen, but since Downey’s film commitments have gotten in the way, Rhys is taking over in the lead role. Read More »

It’s a new year, but the 44th season of Saturday Night Live is only halfway done. The late night sketch series returns this weekend with first-time host Rachel Brosnahan, who has been getting acclaim and awards left and right for her leading role on the Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

the hunt

Is Al Pacino in the midst of a comeback? I hope so. The acclaimed actor will appear in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman later this year, and now he’s about to join the Amazon series The Hunt. The show, which hails from executive producer Jordan Peele, focuses on a team of Nazi hunters in 1977 New York City who discover hundreds of secret Nazis are attempting to create a Fourth Reich in the United States.

true detective season 3 review

“Someone once told me, ‘Time is a flat circle,'” Detective Rustin Cohle famously said in the first season of True Detective. “Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again.” Series creator Nic Pizzolatto didn’t know it at the time, but when he wrote those words for Matthew McConaughey to deliver, he was predicting the future of his own TV series. As True Detective season 3 unfolds, it becomes clear that Pizzolatto has decided to do everything he did in season 1 over and over and over again, to the point where the new season – which debuts on HBO this weekend – starts to feel like a remake of season 1.
