“For those who have been with Outlander’s Claire and Jamie since the first season aired in 2014, it’s hard to even imagine an end to their epic time-hopping journey.

Luckily, we won’t have to imagine it for quite some time. Starz and Sony Pictures Television have announced the wildly popular show’s renewal for at least two more seasons, running 12 episodes each.

For those keeping track, that means we’ll get the upcoming fourth season currently in production  slated for release in November 2018 — and then have two additional seasons (if not more) to look forward to in the future.

And for audiences in the U.S., it looks like a central location for those seasons will be much closer to home than we’re used to.

“Fans can rest assured their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, adversaries, and adventures in seasons five and six as we delve into American history and continue the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said in a statement.

Based on the best-selling novels by Diana Gabaldon, the plot lines for each of those seasons will more or less follow the arcs from their corresponding book in the series. So Season 5 will be based on Gabaldon’s fifth installment, titled The Fiery Cross, and Season 6 will follow A Breath of Snow and Ashes. 

There are currently eight Outlander books in total, but Gabaldon is working on Book 9 and recently said she’d likely finish writing it by the end of 2018. The saga is planned to end with Book 10.

So never fret, lovers of premium cable adaptations of bestselling fantasy sagas. George R. R. Martin might never finish Winds of Winter, let alone the other books planned in the series, but…”

Ariana Grande’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ is 13 minutes of truly hair-raising harmonies

Published

on

Okay, there’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is Ariana Grande’s Carpool Karaoke never does answer the question of how exactly Grande managed to injure her hand during filming. (When the episode starts, she’s already bandaged up.)

The good news? The whole episode is awesome. Ariana Grande is a stunning singer, the harmonies her and Corden cook up are truly goosebump-raising, and there’s an entertaining segment where the two pop into a cafe for a snack.

Definitely an A+ episode all-round.

‘The Romanoffs’ trailer stars so many familiar faces: Watch

Published

on

The Romanov royal family is probably best known at this point for being executed while imprisoned during the Russian revolution in 1918. But nowadays everyone likes to claim they’re a relative, according to this trailer for The Romanoffs.

The new show, spearheaded by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, features a really, really big cast of people including Mad Men stars Christina Hendricks and John Slattery. The show will tell eight stories of potential Romanov relatives and the people around them, with characters spanning multiple continents. Undoubtedly there will be some crossover at some point, which sound a little Game of Thrones-y in setup.

The Romanoffs spins onto Amazon Prime Video Oct. 12.

“Fargo has Chris Rock booked to star in its upcoming fourth season, but that’s not even the exciting part.

Season 4 of the time-hopping anthology series shifts the setting to the seedy underbelly of Kansas City, Missouri during the 1950s. Rock is set to play the head of an African-American crime family who takes on an unusual challenge.

In a bid to foster peace between Rock’s crew and a rival Italian syndicate, the leaders of the two factions hash out a deal: They’ll swap sons. To keep the peace, Rock and his Italian counterpart trade their eldest sons with each intending to raise the child as their own.

The unusual situation takes an unexpected turn when the Italian mob boss dies on the operating table during a routine surgery. What happens from there will remain a mystery for now, but unnamed FX execs described Season 4 as a story of “immigration and assimilation and the things we do for money” at the Television Critics Association press tour on Friday (h/t Variety).

Rock, a self-professed Fargo fan, said that he “can’t wait to work with [showrunner Noah Hawley].”

The fourth season of Fargo is set to start shooting sometime in 2019, with the Season 4 premiere expected to arrive at a later point in the same year……………”
