Some months ago, we heard the surprising news that TNT would look to adapt its Noah Wyle-starring adventurer film trilogy, 'The Librarian,' for an ongoing TV series, with Wyle potentially reprising the title role. Now, the cable network has made things official with a 10-episode order and a cast that includes Rebecca Romijn, John Larroquette, and original series stars Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin.
It seemed early on as if HBO trailers would have a monopoly on the day, but TNT has a few reasons of their own to be excited. 'Falling Skies' season 4 officially set a June premiere, announcing the news in a new trailer from SXSW, while its network also set premieres for the Sean Bean-starring 'Legends' and post-apocalyptic drama 'The Last Ship' with trailers of their own.
Well, this is a twist. No doubt 'Falling Skies' star Noah Wyle earned the leading role in TNT's alien actioner through relationships forged as the Indiana Jones-esque 'Librarian' in multiple TNT films, but could Wyle go back to lead an ongoing series spinoff dubbed 'The Librarians'? Get the latest on Wyle's 'Falling Skies' future on 'The Librarians' right here!
Excited though we were to see ousted 'Walking Dead' showrunner Frank Darabont take his talents to TNT for its impressive period drama 'Mob City,' we certainly saw this coming. Despite its six-episode "limited series" billing, TNT has officially declined to produce any additional episodes of the Jon Bernthal-starring drama, effectively canceling 'Mob City' and its Hollywood dreams.
Some time ago we'd heard that the TV series based on Jason Statham's iconic 'Transporter' franchise had produced an entire season, though Cinemax ultimately opted against bringing the show to American TV. Now, not only has 'Transporter The Series' been greenlit for a second season, we have an American premiere date for Frank Martin's continued adventures on TNT!
We've been keeping an eye toward TNT's forthcoming noir crime drama 'Mob City,' not only for its impressive star pedigree, but especially for the involvement of former 'Walking Dead' showrunner Frank Darabont. Our longest look yet at the gritty new drama has arrived in a brand-new trailer, along with synopses of the first few hours we'll spend in TNT's 'Mob City'!
Among the many mysterious moments 'Falling Skies' season 4 glimpsed during the recent New York Comic-Con trailer, one silver-haired young lass caught our eye in the final moments. We finally have an explanation for the new player, as 'Harry Potter' franchise vet Scarlett Byrne has been confirmed as a regular for the intriguing new role.
'Falling Skies' has delivered some impressive season 4 content in the past few weeks, including that casting announcement of Mira Sorvino atop the full-length trailer from New York Comic-Con, though a few questions remain unanswered. Now that the main characters are out on the road and increasingly divided, what will become of season 3 guest stars Robert Sean Leonard or Noah Wyle's former 'ER' co-star Gloria Reuben?
'Falling Skies' season 4 gave us an advanced look at the summer 2014 premiere in the tantalizing new trailer from New York Comic-Con, but the TNT alien actioner still has some secrets left to spill. Mira Sorvino is the first big name to be announced for a 'Falling Skies' season 4 guest role, appearing in a recurring arc opposite John Pope (Colin Cunningham), but what part has she to play in the new resistance?
Along with the fresh new look at 'Falling Skies' season 4, TNT took us back in time for a preview of one of its other high-profile upcoming projects, the Frank Darabont-helmed crime drama 'Mob City'! Forget the teases, the newest look at the 'Mob City' full trailer reveals the full breadth of stars, while the bullets fly around the City of Angels.
