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
The already-streaming Marvel Netflix series have given us a taste of the four major superheroes paired up, but we’re nearing time for The Defenders to bring it all home. So it is, that Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist are all standing tall in a costume-happy first photo!
FX and Donald Glover’s Atlanta rightly cleaned up at the Golden Globes this past Sunday, but there’s good news and bad going forward. As expected, Season 2 has been pushed out of 2017 due to Glover’s Star Wars commitments, though FX and Glover have struck a deal for even more shows.
And lo, FX has descended from upon the mountain to lay out our TV future for the next few months. Schedule-wise, at least, we know know when The Americans and their quaint Russian spy antics will return for Season 5, as well when Archer will enter “Dreamland” in the spring.
We’ve barely begun the rigmarole of American Horror Story teasing its seventh season, but it’ll be time yet before Ryan Murphy beings his flagship anthology franchise to a close. FX has officially picked up an additional two seasons of American Horror Story, likely taking us through at least 2019. Just like our real-life American horror story!
Game of Thrones has had its share of recasts and near-misses over the years, but it’s genuinely saddening to miss out on the great Mahershala Ali. The Moonlight and Luke Cage star apparently put in for a role in Season 2 (admittedly not the best), revealing what thwarted his audition in a new interview.
It remains unlikely that Jack Bauer will lever hand off the 24: Legacy in person, but the new FOX reboot is nonetheless trotting out some very familiar faces. See Tony Almeida’s return in a fresh trailer for 24: Legacy, ahead of its post-Super Bowl premiere.
FX X-Men drama Legion has understandably pulled focus for its February premiere, but what of Burn Notice creator Matt Nix’s FOX series, which was said to feature a couple with mutant children on the run? Reports indicate a pilot order is heating up, while Nix himself previews the untitled series’ place within the X-Men films.
Whether or not FOX ever gets The X-Files back for another case, Michael Scofield and the Prison Break crew are raring to go in their own revival this spring. A brand-new trailer reveals both Michael’s return from the grave and our new setting, while FOX finally sets an official premiere.
We’re far enough from the premiere that you’d barely remember Arrested Development Season 4 as one of the first Netflix original offerings, but at long last, Season 5 might finally escape its own arrested development. Producer Brian Grazer says the last cast hurdles have been cleared, and news should be “happening soon.”
The initial shock of Donald Trump’s election left it unclear if SNL would continually call on Alec Baldwin for such an extended commitment, but the 30 Rock alum and ranking host has soldiered on, much to the real Trump’s enjoyable chagrin. Baldwin may even follow in Will Ferrell’s “Dubya” footsteps, apparently taking the role to “other venues.”
