The Immortal Kevin Fitzpatrick was born and raised in New York City, and that doesn't make sense. Kevin wears many hats, including actor, editor, and writer, but never yellow. The best things in life are Back to the Future, beets, Firefly and The Venture Bros. When not picking apart the minutia of pop culture in film and TV, Kevin can usually be found RIGHT BEHIND YOU.
Kevin Fitzpatrick Biography
For as long and Marvel and Netflix have been putting out series, we’ve had to wonder about release strategy. Two per year has remained the norm; first Daredevil and Jessica Jones in 2015, then Daredevil Season 2 and Luke Cage in 2016, and with Marvel now confirming renewal for the former, as well a Punisher spinoff, it seems all else will wait until after The Defenders.
Once the patron saint of TV rescues, Netflix seems more focused on its own original content than picking up stragglers, but the wealth of Marvel content had Agent Carter fans optimistic Peggy might live out Season 3 on the streaming service. Sadly not so, as Netflix bosses now admit “it was a business decision more than a creative one.”
Appropriate for its emphasis on the evils of technology, Black Mirror has managed to keep Season 3 largely under wraps with its move to Netflix. Now, the streaming service at last confirms new episodes will arrive in October, albeit not the full twelve ordered in the initial deal.
Last we heard of Arrested Development Season 5 (and mind you, we’ve been hearing for years), Will Arnett thought Netflix bosses “need to get their s— together” to make it happen. Well, good news! According to creator Mitch Hurwitz, said s— has perhaps indeed come together, enough for a potential early 2017 production. Let’s immediately get our hopes up!
The internet was beside itself with anticipation at news that Gilmore Girls would return for A Year in the Life, and it won’t be that long before it’s a part of your own life. The long-awaited Gilmore Girls revival has an official November premiere and first footage, something both Amy Schumer and John Oliver heartily approve of.
Long before Jeffrey Dean Morgan picked up the bat as The Walking Dead’s Negan, we knew AMC would reign in the foul-mouthed character’s language, occasionally allowing for alternate takes. Now, Morgan himself reveals that Season 7 makes regular use of “F-takes” to accommodate the character’s more colorful swears, but will we ever see them?
When Netflix passes, go to Showtime? If Elizabeth Marvel can’t win the presidency on House of Cards, it appears as if Homeland will give her a shot. The actor has officially been called to play the first female President (elect) for Homeland Season 6, depicting the delicate transition of power.
Rick and Morty has yet to set an official return date for Season 3, likely eyed somewhere toward late 2016, but never you fear for lack of new material. A new video from Comic-Con 2016 has emerged, featuring creator Justin Roiland acting out one of the most insane pre-trial transcripts in recorded history, complete with animation.
Oh, PETA. You haters of horse-sex, and cannibals of Gillian Anderson’s leg. Whatever we think of The Walking Dead Season 7 and its many questions, the AMC drama is apparently making PETA happy with its “magic” use of CG and animatronics to bring to life that famous tiger from the Season 7 trailer.
Project Greenlight hits a stop sign, Project Redlight; you name the pun, and Matt Damon glumly affirms. The Jason Bourne star reveals that HBO’s revival of his and Ben Affleck’s Project Greenlight has come to an end once more, and might potentially be shopped to another network.
