“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…”

True crime podcast ‘Dirty John’ has been made into a TV series, and here’s the trailer

Published

on

“If you listened right up until the last disturbing seconds of true story podcast Dirty John, seeing it turned into a television series is a pretty harrowing experience.

The six-part podcast presented by Los Angeles Times journalist Christopher Goffard and produced by Wondery (who also produced Dr. Death), has been made into a Bravo series. And now, we have a trailer.

Based on a chilling true story of abuse, manipulation, deception, and violence, Dirty John sees Connie Britton takes on the central role of interior designer Debra Newell, while Eric Bana looks downright menacing playing her formidable partner John Meehan, a.k.a. Dirty John.

Dirty John premieres Nov. 25 at 10 p.m. on Bravo and will run for eight episodes.”

“Finally, a world of Doctor Who fans has seen the result of a very brave and controversial decision, unprecedented in the show’s 55-year history.

That’s right: in Sunday’s episode, for the first time ever, most characters on the show — including the lead — speak with broad Yorkshire accents.

Luckily, that trail was blazed by Game of Thrones, so hopefully most American audiences can understand what the hell this Sheffield crew is talking about.

Oh yes, and Jodie Whittaker just happens to be the first woman to play the Doctor. But judging by a packed house of fans at Madison Square Garden, where Whittaker and incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall watched and discussed her first episode live with New York Comic Con attendees, that part was not controversial in the slightest……………………..”

Add Saturday Night Live‘s “So You’re Willing to Date a Magician?” to the Breaking Hall of Fame.

The dating show sketch, which featured Awkwafina as a bachelorette who’s “not feeling too picky right now,” was pretty funny on its own. But Leslie Jones laughing so hard she had to hide behind her question card puts it squarely into “delightful” territory.

Hey, you can’t tell us you wouldn’t crack up at Kenan Thompson and those nails.
