Everyone’s favorite show that isn’t Game of Thrones is coming back for a fifth season.

In lieu of an official announcement from Starz, Outlander executive producer Ronald D. Moore said Sunday that the show will be returning for a fifth season, Entertainment Weekly reported. Moore noted that there are still “usual negotiations and conversations” about the future of the show, but he seemed completely confident in confirming Season 5.

“We are certainly going to do it,” Moore said at the For Your Consideration: Outlander panel. “I have no doubt we are doing a Season 5.”

The pseudo-announcement doesn’t come as a huge surprise considering the show’s success, critical acclaim, and its source material. The series is based on the best-selling novels of the same name by Diana Gabaldon, and each season roughly adapts one book in the series.

Outlanders Season 3 finished in December last year and Season 4, which is still in production, is expected to kick off this fall. Season 5 likely won’t air until 2019 or even 2020.

Jodie Whittaker the New ‘Doctor Who’

Published

“All of this is new to me,” says the Doctor. And she’s not alone.

The trailer for Doctor Who Season 11, starring Jodie Whittaker as the Time Lord’s first female incarnation, was released at San Diego Comic Con Thursday. And while the locations we glimpsed are familiar to any Who fan — quarries, beaches, corridors, the wreck of an alien ship — there’s a distinct freshness to it all.

Part of that comes from Whittaker’s youthful energy, which makes a distinct change from grumpy predecessor Peter Capaldi. It bubbles out through words spoken in her native Yorkshire accent. (Other than “brilliant!”, the one word she spoke in the final post-regeneration scene of last year’s “Twice Upon A Time,” we’ve never heard Whittaker talk in character as the Doctor before.)

It also shows in the fresh take on the Doctor’s costume and the redesign of her all-important little helper, the Sonic Screwdriver.

Part of that freshness is due to her new permanent companions — three of them, numbers which haven’t been seen in the TARDIS since the early 1980s, not counting brief sojourns with Rory, Amy and River Song back in Season 6, and a more diverse representation of folks than the Doctor’s vessel has ever seen.

All we know so far is their names — Yasmin, Ryan and Graham — and the fact that they have some sort of connection to the Doctor. “If I ask very nicely,” she says in a post-regeneration moment of vulnerability, “will you be my new best friends?”

The Doctor Who fandom has already answered that one with a resounding “yes” — as shown in the other video the new Who team brought to Comic Con.

Doctor Who Season 11, the first to be helmed by new showrunner Chris Chibnall, warps onto our screens this October. ”

‘Saturday Night Live’ blooper reel has all your faves messing up

Published

Even more delightful than a great SNL segment is a great SNL segment executed terribly, with cast members flubbing their lines and laughing at their own jokes.

That’s our takeaway from this behind-the-scenes video, featuring stars like Ryan Gosling, Kenan Thompson, and Donald Glover riffing, goofing, corpsing, and just plain acting silly.

Honestly, the really impressive thing about this video is that these screwups don’t happen more often. We can barely keep from laughing out loud while watching these at home – we’d be disasters at keeping it in if we had to perform them ourselves.
