Legion” fans showed up in droves for FX’s Comic-Con panel Thursday evening, and even though production on Season 2 has yet to begin, the audience was treated to a number of new details.

First and foremost, the second season has received an expanded episode order from FX. Season 1 consisted of eight episodes, but the follow-up will feature 10. John Solberg, the network’s executive vice-president of communications, also announced production is slated to begin in early 2018.

Joining the existing cast will be a new face playing an existing villain. Said Taghmaoi (“Wonder Woman,” “Three Kings”) will play the Shadow King, also known as Amahl Farouk.

‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2: Adam Scott Says He’s Game to Return, as No One’s Storyline (Including His) Is Tied Up

4 hours ago

As “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty kicks around ideas for a sequel to the hit – and now Emmy-nominated – limited series, star Adam Scott said he’s up for a return.

Scott, in San Diego to promote his new Fox series, “Ghosted,” with co-star Craig Robinson, told IndieWire that he thought the show’s entire cast (well, at least the ones still alive) would be game for an encore if the story was right.

“I think everyone would,” he said. “I think it’s a matter of finding [the right idea]. I don’t know if its something that theres even an idea for, I have no idea. I was just proud to be a part of it. It was a great experience working with [director] Jean-Marc [Vallée], Reese [Witherspoon] and all those incredible people. It was really rewarding.”

4 hours ago

The Time Team is grateful to its newest recruits.

After NBC’s “Timeless” was canceled on May 10 after only one season, fans raged and took to social media with the hashtag #RenewTimeless in order to get their show back. Three days later, history was made when NBC reversed course and renewed the show for another 10-episode season.

‘Van Helsing’ Trailer: Season 2 Is a Fleshy Nightmare Even Vanessa Can’t Escape Unscathed

5 hours ago

In the not-too-distant future of Syfy’s “Van Helsing,” vampires and humans alike are battling to survive any way they can, and it doesn’t look like diplomacy is their strong suit.

When last we left vampire hunter Vanessa (Kelly Overton) in the Season 1 finale, we learned that the source of her strange powers is that she’s a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, the doctor-turned-monster hunter from Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.” It was actually more of a confirmation, since that’s been obvious from the start, but her father’s identity still appears to have some mystery surrounding it.

We also left off on a couple of cliffhangers: Vanessa finally found her missing daughter Dylan (Hannah Cheramy), who has been turned into a vampire. We’re not quite sure what that means, though. (Since she’s descended from Vanessa, »

‘Stan Against Evil’ Teaser: Season 2 Promises a Weirder, Wackier Parade of Killer Demons — Watch

6 hours ago

After a debut season that wrapped up with surprise deaths, time loops and plenty of ugly-looking demons, “Stan Against Evil” is ready for a follow-up.

Show creator Dana Gould joined cast members Janet Varney and John C. McGinley for a preview of what’s to come in the show’s second season. The IFC show is set in the town of Willard’s Mill, a quiet New England community suddenly overrun by vengeful spirits. Last season’s cliffhanger showed that the story was bigger than Stan or Sheriff Evie imagined, but the show would keep its focus on Willard’s Mill.

‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’: First Look at Revival Movie Debuts at Comic-Con — Watch

6 hours ago

Rocko’s Modern Life” is about to take a fresh look at modern life, and the animated wallaby — who hasn’t been seen since 1996 — isn’t exactly a huge fan of what he sees.

The opposite could be said of his fans, who gave a rapturous ovation to the first footage screened publicly of the new movie, “Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.” The revival special doesn’t debut until 2018, but Comic-Con attendees got to see Rocko, Heffer, and Filburt return to earth — after being stuck in space for the last 20 years — and witness how they experience a modernized O-Town for the first time.

“The last time we saw our heroes, they were in outer space. This picks up exactly where we left off,” director Cosmo Segurson said during the hour-long panel discussion. “They’re reacting to now. The characters have not changed — decidedly so.”

How ‘Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party’ Became a Joint Effort to Make the World a Better Place

9 hours ago

Chalk it up to chemistry, the perfect recipe, or secret sauce. Whatever the magic is that happens between Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart, viewers lap it up on “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.”

Premiering one day before the 2016 presidential election, VH1’s hybrid cooking show-celebrity hangout became a safe haven for those afraid that Trump’s America would create even more marginalized groups and divisions. Instead, “Potluck Dinner Party” envisions a world where homemaking meets hip-hop and “A Good Thing” lives in harmony with “Nuthin’ But a G Thang.” Martha and Snoop’s friendship and natural camaraderie became a model for the world we wanted to live in.

‘Archer’ Meets ‘Kingsman’ in Unexpected Animated Spy Crossover — Watch

9 hours ago

Well, that was unexpected.

When Fox arrived at Comic-Con for their “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” panel on Thursday, “a mashup of an American spy spoof and a British secret agent graphic novel/film franchise” wasn’t exactly on anyone’s anticipated list of panel surprises.

Yet, here it is, in all its glory: an animated Eggsy, running across London rooftops and city streets, all in the style of the Fxx show. Shortly after arriving in the bespoke suit shop that gives the films its name, he finds Sterling Archer (who takes less than a minute before calling him “guv’na”).

Jabs at British culture, saving old ladies, and (in true “Archer” fashion) plenty of heavy drinking has us imagining what these two might do with more than a trailer’s-length amount of time together. »

Chanelle Aponte Pearson’s Dazzling Ode to Black Lesbian Love Is the Next Great Queer Project of 2017

10 hours ago

If the success of “Moonlight” and “Atlanta” are any indication, 2017 is set to become the year of the visionary black auteur (about time already). Joining their ranks soon enough is Chanelle Aponte Pearson, director of ‘195 Lewis,” which recently won a Special Mention from Outfest for “highlighting the contemporary life of queer black woman with flair, vibrancy and substance.”

The short series explores the joys and pitfalls of open relationships in a vibrant community of black queer women living in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn. Flowing with original music by members of the community and glowing with luscious colors and warm light, Pearson breathes life into the eclectic mix of characters with equal parts humor and lust. The script, by first-time screenwriters Rae Leone Allen and Yaani Supreme, radiates a confident originality that heralds a fresh new perspective.

David Lynch Playlist: The Director’s Favorite Bands and Singers Perfect for ‘Twin Peaks’

10 hours ago

If someone found a TV network willing to give them 18 hours of original programming all under their domain, it makes sense that person would want to bring a bunch of their favorite bands along with them.

Over the run of “Twin Peaks: The Return,” David Lynch has used the close of every episode as a showcase for past collaborators. Some of these acts have been household names – who could forget Nine Inch Nails rounding out the infamous Part 8 – while others have been more under-the-radar favorites.

These are artists that not only fit thematically with each individual episode, but also hew close to Lynch’s personal fandoms. The director has been open about it in the past, including his appreciation for Au Revoir Simone. Moby, for whom Lynch directed a music video in 2009, popped up this past week and longtime collaborator Chrysta Bell recorded multiple albums with Lynch before taking »

Last Week’S Podcast: Danny Trejo on Weapons, Tacos, the Los Angeles Rams and Weird Looks from Parents — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Zachary Levi first attended San Diego Comic-Con 11 years ago, when his NBC series “Chuck” first premiered. Not only did he fall in love with the fan event, he soon found a way to put his own stamp on the gathering with his Nerd Machine brand. That led to Nerd HQ, an annual fan event that traditionally was held simultaneously with Comic-Con in San Diego.

But don’t call him the “King of Con” – a label that Levi thinks only comic book royalty have earned. “I don’t know if I love that title,” he said. “Even though I’ve been a nerd my whole life this will only be my 11th year at Comic-Con. You gotta be Stan Lee status. Every one else is vying for »

11 hours ago

Ramin Bahrani has become an indie staple after acclaimed efforts such as “Chop Shop,” “Man Push Cart,” and “99 Homes,” but his most high profile release might just be the upcoming HBO film adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451.”

‘Mr. Robot’ at Comic-Con: Hack the Streets of San Diego For a Glimpse at Season 3

13 hours ago

There’s not a lot we can tell you about what “Mr. Robot” is doing at Comic-Con, if only because we fear what creator Sam Esmail and USA Network would do to our computers. But at San Diego Comic-Con this year, the USA series has put together a really fun experience for fans of the hacking drama, one which embodies the show’s challenging storytelling (and love of puzzles).

The short version is this: It all starts with Ecoin, and if you’re in San Diego this week, you should sign up for an account. At the very least, this is because over 20 local San Diego vendors are “accepting Ecoin,” which means that when you sign up, you get $20 — sorry, “20 E” — worth of redeemable offers, mostly free food.

‘The Bold Type’: 7 Ways This Fictional Teen Vogue Became the Summer’s Most Insightful Series About Young Women

19 July 2017 5:17 PM, PDT

When Teen Vogue began covering the current administration with pieces like Lauren Duca’s op-ed “Donald Trump Is Gaslighting America,” media observers were shocked that a teen magazine would make such a gutsy political statement. But Teen Vogue editors knew something that those pundits didn’t: The younger generation could care about fashion, pop culture, dating and current events.

That’s why Freeform’s “The Bold Type” couldn’t have come at a better time. The show offers up its own take on the classic fashion magazine-meets-feminism genre made popular in films like “The Devil Wears Prada” and TV shows like “Just Shoot Me” and “Ugly Betty.” Sure, it’s glossy, youthful, and wildly unrealistic about what it’s like to work in journalism and publishing, but it’s still ultimately a rom-com, and therefore subject to those fantasy trappings.

‘Confederate’: Why The ‘Game of Thrones’ Creators’ Next HBO Series Is Already Causing Controversy

19 July 2017 4:00 PM, PDT

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss don’t do anything the easy way. The “Game of Thrones” creators are still busy wrapping up the final two seasons of HBO’s lavish fantasy epic, including a final season that will film across multiple continents, but their follow-up project has already been given the green light.

It’s also already generating controversy.

Announced late Wednesday afternoon by HBO, Benioff and Weiss will serve as showrunners, executive producers, and creators on “Confederate,” a war story set in an alternate timeline leading up to the “Third American Civil War.” The new original series exists in a world where the southern states never seceded from the Union. Slavery is still legal and has “evolved into a modern institution,” per the release from HBO, and the story will track “a broad swath of characters” in both the North and South, including freedom fighters, slave hunters, politicians, abolitionists, »

‘I’m Sorry’: Andrea Savage Created a Comedy Filled With Uncomfortable Moments, But Is Never Dark

19 July 2017 2:17 PM, PDT

“The whole show is not about buttholes, I promise you.”

An unconventional reassurance, but Andrea Savage is right. “I’m Sorry,” the latest, freshest comedy from TruTV, is about family, love, and the strange ways we have of sharing strange moments with each other. Savage stars as a comedy writer in La, making her way through the colliding perils that come with being a parent and living with a minimal filter. Andrea (the character’s name, as well) has a loving family, made up of husband Mike (Tom Everett Scott) and daughter Amelia (Olive Petrucci).

This particular day on set, though, they’re filming a scene at a poker table where the between-hands banter turns to some unconventional bedroom habits. We’ll let guest star Jason Mantzoukas take it from here.

Kyle's idea of the perfect date is also a great way to get brain freeze. Watch a sneak peek from Wednesday's all-new #ImSorryTV! »

19 July 2017 1:57 PM, PDT

As HBO’s hit fantasy series “Game of Thrones” sets course for its surely explosive ending, the cable outfit is apparently eager to stay in business with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programmning, has announced that the pair are now signed on for a new original series, entitled “Confederate,” which will imagine an alternate American timeline in which a third civil war has irrevocably changed the fabric and landscape of the United States.
