More often than not, HBO’s Silicon Valley makes headlines for one major set piece gag per year, belying some of the improvisational talent that goes into making one of TV’s best comedies. Case in point, watch T.J. Miller insult Stephen Toblowsky for over four and a half minutes, an outtake of old person jokes to rival any gag on the series to date.

The comedic talents of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may not always have a guiding hand in AMC’s Preacher, though the pilot more than carried some visceral influence. If you don’t believe us, take it from pair themselves, as AMC released the Preacher pilot with Rogen and Goldberg’s commentary!
Sweet merciful death, may you never again darken TV’s door. Earlier this week we learned that Showtime’s Homeland would chronicle the tender time between presidencies during its tenure in New York, though questions loomed as to that big, bedridden cliffhanger from last year. Fear not, friends, for Homeland Season 6 will indeed have a Friend in Quinn, alive and well.
Cameron Crowe fan or otherwise, we’re at least anxious for a look at the Almost Famous director’s new Showtime Roadies, debuting June 26. Thankfully, the network has obliged, adding Office vet Rainn Wilson into a new full-length trailer getting to know the characters.
July seems like a criminally long wait for the second season of USA’s breakout drama Mr. Robot, but not nearly as much time will have passed after Elliott’s fsociety hack. A new Season 2 trailer sets the stage thirty days after the “Five/Nine” event, teasing the nooks and crannies of Elliott’s worsening breakdown.
HBO’s Westworld adaptation has often found itself the center of a larger narrative around the network’s expensive missteps, following production halts and rumors a premiere might be pushed to 2017. Not so, apparently, as HBO now confirms Westworld will bow in late 2016, along with Sarah Jessica Parker’s new show and others.
Netflix has been reasonably quiet on the subject of Sense8 Season 2, even after the departure of star Aml Ameen, and the likely plan to debut a Christmas special, followed by a 2017 premiere. Now star Jamie Clayton provides new details of the season, including both Aml’s exit, and the departure of Wachowski sibling Lilly, leaving Lana in a solo position for the first time.
True Detective anticipation evaporated practically overnight with the release of Season 2, and nearly one year removed from its finale, HBO is increasingly less keen on re-lighting that e-cigarette. Following a network changing of the guard, creator Nic Pizzolatto is even less likely to develop any True Detective Season 3, instead focusing on other projects.
The fourth season finale of Arrow ended on a fairly low-key “Schism,” disappointing a throng of fans who tuned into see if a time-turning Flash twist one-night earlier would ripple out across The CW’s DC dramas. The Arrow finale went by with nary a mention of Central City, but star Stephen Amell thinks the emerald archer will be back to basics in Season 5, rather than dealing with time-travel twists from another series.
It’s been some time since Showtime’s Homeland left us on a vague Season 5 end, and promised to return to the United States in Season 6. Fall 2016 itself may be a charged time for the country, and it seems Carrie Mathison will get right back in the middle, as Season 6 eyes the vulnerable time between our elected and outgoing President.
