Even as prospects on The Knick returning for Season 3 had gone dark for a year, the Steven Soderbergh medical drama made headlines with one star seemingly confident in its end. Now, Cinemax confirms Dr. Thackery’s story has died on the table, as the network returns to more action-oriented fare.
When last we heard, Steven Soderbergh had in mind to reboot Cinemax’s The Knick for an additional two seasons, even after an explicit end to Dr. Thackery’s story. Sadly, one series star offers a bleak update on the prospect, claiming “I’ve heard it’s done.”
King of the Hill creator Mike Judge may have briefly returned to his animated roots with a Beavis and Butthead revival in 2011, but Cinemax may grant him a longer stay. The Silicon Valley creator has been given a series order for Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus, an animated country music series.
Cinemax has certainly come a long way since its first original series, Strike Back, but fans who missed its brand of action the first time around will get another chance. The network has officially revived the series for a fifth season, albeit with a new cast and familiar hands taking the reigns.
As if the ability to watch Netflix offline weren’t enough, soon all your streaming options will change the way you watch TV. Amazon seems to be keeping plenty competitive as well, now adding the option to include HBO or Cinemax to its Prime subscription, albeit for a price.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31. Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
Jessica Jones creator Brian Michael Bendis apparently jumped the gun to reveal that Cinemax had an eye toward adapting Marvel Icon imprint Scarlet (especially given he claimed HBO at the time). That said, with the cat out of the bag, the revered comic artist teases that Scarlet would very-likely follow some of her reality-bending roots into the live-action adaptation.
It’s taken long enough for Cinemax’s adaptation of Max Collins’ Quarry to break ground, and will only take a bit longer still. The network has set an official September premiere for the Logan Marshall-Green led drama, also issuing its first official photos.
Marvel TV series are rapidly spreading beyond their ABC and Netflix homes, between FOX, Freeform and more, so might HBO be next? Jessica Jones co-creator Brian Michael Bendis seems to have confirmed as much, developing Marvel Icon imprint Scarlet for a live-action series with the prestige cabler.
It’s been a long road getting to air, losing stars like Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Stellan Skarsgard in the process, but Cinemax’s Quarry is finally ready to open fire. While we’ll have Outcast over the summer to tide us over from Banshee’s end, check out the new trailer for Cinemax’s intense new fall adaptation Quarry, based on the Max Allan Collins books.
