Anyone keeping up with HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ well knows that season 5 will be one of transition for many characters, in particular Arya, who was last seen boarding a ship toward a brand-new life in a foreign country. And while it’s hard to say exactly who Arya Stark will become when ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 picks up in 2015, we at least know what she’ll look like, based on new concept art.
We’ve heard before of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ and ‘Seinfeld’ creator Larry David’s open HBO invitation to return for another season, but the former series may have the latter to blame for its holdup. A recent interview sees David doubting his return for another season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ as the ‘Seinfeld’ finale may have soured him on wrapping things up.
A few weeks ago, ‘Game of Thrones’ got all our season 5 hopes up with the reveal of a new “Sight” web page designed to tease subscribers with upcoming footage. Now, the first few bits of the hotly-anticipated ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 have landed, confirming that Tyrion and Sansa…are still alive! You know, doin’ Tyrion and Sansa stuff. Like Tyrion and Sansa do.
Where can we find her, a woman like that? HBO’s ‘True Detective’ seeks to answer this very question, and will go straight to the source for an answer. That’s right, “Jessie’s Girl” artist Rick Springfield will lend his vocal and physical talents to the dark and dreary drama serial with a part in ‘True Detective’ season 2, and we’d tell you who he is, but the point is probably moot.
HBO surprised us all a few months ago with the revelation that cordcutters might finally have a solution, as the pay-cable network announced plans for an independent online streaming service in 2015. Now, an internal memo suggests that the new service will arrive with ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 in April, also revealing some surprising prospects for the future of HBO GO.
Like ‘Game of Thrones’ before it, HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ has proven an intriguing concept to develop, given the events of season 1 largely covered literary author Tom Perotta’s entire novel’s worth of story. Now, with season 2 set to commence in the immediate future, HBO’s Damon Lindelof rapture drama has not only trimmed its core cast, but potentially shifted ‘The Leftovers’ outside its fictional upstate New York setting.
Showtime's 'Dexter' may have ended in a lumberjacked hurricane of absurdity, but the 'Masuka' spinoff will live on in spirit. C.S. Lee is the latest confirmed to join the cast of HBO's 'True Detective' season 2, but as whom, you ask?
Long renowned as one of HBO's crowning achievements in drama, David Simon's Baltimore crime saga 'The Wire' is getting a major facelift for 2015. Not only will the network premiere a high-def digital remastering of the series in late December, but digital and Blu-Ray updates of 'The Wire''s remastered set will be available after the new year.
Well, we can’t say for sure as a high-profile project from the likes of Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger has ever gone so long through development without an actual title, but HBO officially likes the sweet sounds of “Untitled Rock ‘N’ Roll Project.” The Bobby Cannavale-led ‘70s drama has an official series pickup, with cast from the likes of Olivia Wilde to Ray Romano, and even a beloved ‘Legend of Korra’ star.
