Yes, the dream of the ‘90s is coming to an end. Put a bird on it, draw the shutters on Women and Women first, and every other Portlandia reference you can think of. Fred and Carrie will be back for Season 8 in 2018, but it’ll be their last in Portland.

For as long as Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss have discussed the final two seasons, the suggestion has been seven episodes for Season 7, and six episodes for Season 8. That final year doesn’t yet have an official renewal, which may yet lead to an increased episode order for the final Game of Thrones.
Around this time last year, we first heard that Louie creator Louis C.K. and the legendary Albert Brooks had partnered on a new animated comedy for FX, and one year later, it’s finally official (with a tweak). TBS has officially ordered the new series, which places both comedians as The Cops.
Boy, it sure seems like a great deal of the most anticipated TV shows are all making us wait until 2018. Either way, SNL and Trainwreck star Bill Hader is finally headlining his own series on HBO (and a hitman comedy at that), and Barry is suiting up for production this spring. Don’t expect to see it until 2018, though.
Rogue One and Star Wars Rebels fans have now had a chance to see ships and characters going back and forth from both mediums. That’s no small feat in a world where Marvel can’t make heads or tails of its movie-TV connections, so how did it happen? A Rogue One writer and producer explains, also clarifying the process of updating ship models to appear on the big screen.
The Arrow-verse technically introduced us to Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Talia once before, but the famed Batman character’s visit to Oliver’s world has been a mystery until now. A new synopsis for February’s “Second Chances” sees Oliver teaming up with Bruce Wayne’s sometime love interest, albeit at a deadly cost.
Crackle isn’t generally our go-to network for quirky crime dramas, but its Snatch adaptation definitely looks to have captured the spirit of Guy Ritchie’s 2002 crime dramedy. See for yourself with a premiere date and first trailer, featuring Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, Dougray Scott, Ed Westwick and more.
It’s become increasingly clear how NBC’s Powerless has changed shape to pull in more of the DC universe, moving from an insurance company setting, to a direct division of Bruce Wayne’s. Now, the newest footage attaches yet another Batman connection with Alan Tudyk’s character.
Why Showtime didn’t see fit to release a new teaser with word of Twin Peaks’ May premiere is anyone’s guess (that David Lynch always was a wily one), but nonetheless, we have a bigger question: How’s Annie? We may find out, as the newest Showtime Twin Peaks teaser finally reintroduces us to Agent Cooper!
We’re still waiting The Leftovers Season 3 to deliver a first trailer and a formal premiere date (beyond April), but each successive glimpse gets just a bit closer to the spiritual endgame. You can see as much in a new photo from the final year, as Jarden, Texas has gone seriously downhill since last year’s finale.
