The sixth and final season of HBO’s Girls pulled a fast one announcing that Rogue One and all-around everywhere actor Riz Ahmed would drop by the final season, but consider all cats out of their respective bags. The season synopsis and first three episodes reveal the full complement of guests, including returnees like Corey Stoll, and newbies like Matthew Rhys, Tracey Ullman and more.

Even the deadest of dead Game of Thrones characters are hardly off-limits by Season 7, though it had appeared Season 6 made short work of lingering figures to tighten up its final years. Surprisingly, we may not have seen the last of a Game of Thrones villain who made a brief return in Season 6, despite a pretty large hole in his neck. Allow us to explain.
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.
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.
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.
The first few trailers for Girls’ sixth and final season have shown off a few notable cameos, but not necessarily any of the ones we’d heard previously. Well, apparently we can throw Rogue One and The Night Of and The OA star Riz Ahmed on that list as well, as revealed in a new photo.
UnREAL and Harry Potter fans were excited as any by the Game of Thrones Season 6 casting news that Freddie Stroma would portray Samwell Tarly’s brother, Dickon, though the actual appearance itself proved surprisingly short. Well, there’s good news and bad for Season 7, as we’ll likely be seeing more of Dickon Tarly, albeit with a very different face.
We’re long past the point of worrying if HBO’s Game of Thrones will spoil any of author George R.R. Martin’s remaining books; now just wondering when we’ll get to read the darn things. There may be good news on that front, as Martin is pretty sure sixth book The Winds of Winter will be out in 2017.
HBO’s Girls started its first controversy with Hannah Horvath (and by association Lena Dunham)’s supposition that she might be “the voice of my generation,” and the sixth and final season seems not to have forgotten that. Our full trailer for the HBO dramedy’s final year sees Hannah back in her element, trying to write the “final chapter.”
Our days of mourning Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds are far from ended, but the first trailer for their mutual HBO documentary Bright Lights will uplift as much as upend your day. See for yourself, as Fisher looks back on her mother’s storied Hollywood career, as much as her own struggle with depression.
