The missteps of UnREAL Season 2 guaranteed that Lifetime would take a more cautious approach in Season 3, and the switch to a Bachelorette-type format is already off and running. We’ve officially found our next Everlasting star, now that Masters of Sex alum Caitlin Fitzgerald has signed on as the new leading star.
Masters of Sex
Oh, and the anti-climax jokes that ensue. Showtime’s Masters of Sex once ranked as an early breakout for the network, but lost steam in its latter seasons, even as the most recent run returned some critical praise. Sadly, Masters & Johnson have officially closed up shop, as Showtime confirms Masters of Sex won’t return for Season 5.
You can always count on Showtime to debut its wares ahead of schedule, and Masters of Sex gets an even bigger boon this year. Catch up with Bill, Virginia and Libby weeks ahead of Season 4's official premiere, and find out what other big names have joined the cast!
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!
It isn’t exactly scientific to suggest that Showtime’s Masters of Sex has fallen on some harder times after its revered first season, but harder still times seem in store by the first Season 4 trailer. Michael Sheen’s Dr. Masters has his very own sadness beard in the first official sneak peek, heralding both a September Season 4 premiere and the advent of a swinging ‘70s vibe.
Just when you thought a huge leap forward for Homeland could be the biggest Showtime news of the day, in swoops the cable network with not one, but three future premieres. Not only will Shameless air two seasons in one year for the first time, but Masters of Sex and The Affair have their fall 2016 dates as well.
As always, Showtime had plenty to say by their TCA press tour presentation, just just Homeland’s move to New York City, but also an official Season 7 renewal for Shameless, and premiere outlines for House of Lies Season 5, Penny Dreadful Season 3, even Ray Donovan Season 4. Find out for yourself, and catch the first new Penny Dreadful footage!
Seemingly brothers and sisters and arms, where Showtime’s Masters of Sex goes, Ray Donovan will follow. The sexual revolution drama and Liev Schrieber’s L.A. fixer will return arm-in-arm for 2016, as Showtime has officially renewed both dramas for a fourth season.
If you thought Judy Greer couldn’t squeeze in another wifely role this summer, Showtime has you covered. The Jurassic World / Tomorrowland / Ant-Man / Married star will join Masters of Sex Season 3 late in its run as that of another notable spouse, but to whom, you ask?
Showtime’s Masters of Sex gifted us all with an early Season 3 premiere online, but why stop there? The acclaimed period drama has another treat in store for Walking Dead fans, as fan-favorite alum Emily Kinney will recur through the new season in a surprising new role.
