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.
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.
Passengers has taken a long road to development, with Keanu Reeves and Rachel McAdams attached to star at various points along the way. But with The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum at the helm and mega-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt on board, the sci-fi romance is pushing full speed ahead. And it just invited another actor to join: Masters of Sex star Michael Sheen, who has been cast in the role of a robot.
Last year Hugh Jackman said he would love to play Wolverine until he’s dead, but the actor confirmed this year that the upcoming sequel to The Wolverine will mark his last time playing the character. And with Hollywood’s inevitable cycle of reboots, it’s only a matter of time before we get a new Wolverine. Enter Conan O’Brien, who showcased some hilarious auditions for actors who could potentially replace Jackman.
HBO has served a few volleys of upcoming tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, following its SXSW debut last year, but with a July 11 premiere fast on the rise, so too is promotion heating up. Watch Jon Snow and Andy Samberg go at it in the full star-studded trailer for HBO’s 7 Days in Hell!
Showtime’s Masters of Sex will launch firmly into the sexual revolution with its upcoming Season 3 premiere, but don’t think a more relaxed mindset has done away with the drama’s punny sense of humor. A new poster teases some three-way Twister between the series leads, while a new trailer shows off the guest cast coming together for Season 3.
Crossing over into June has put us one small step closer to Showtime’s summer lineup of Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan returning for Season 3 on July 12, but the first official promo takes a giant leap for mankind.
The first sneak peek at Showtime’s Masters of Sex Season 3 has arrived, ushering in the sexual revolution, or, as Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson comments, “We are the sexual revolution.” The third season leaps forward from 1961 to 1965, as Masters and Johnson present their new book to a suspicious medical community — and one doctor in particular takes umbrage with their overly-technical jargon.
Last year saw IFC assembling a ridiculous collection of stars for the Funny or Die-produced Spoils of Babylon, and already the sequel is shaping up even bigger. Following Boardwalk Empire star Michael K. Williams’ cast as lead, The Spoils Before Dying has added new and returning stars the likes of Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Haley Joel Osment and more.
Just being handsome isn’t going to get Carey Mulligan to marry you. Sorry, dudes, but such is the case in the new trailer for Far From the Madding Crowd, based on the classic novel by Thomas Hardy.
