We’re still reeling the loss of Star Wars legend and all-around treasure Carrie Fisher, though as tends to be the case with departed stars, their upcoming projects will help uphold their legacy. In addition to completing her work on Star Wars Episode VIII, Fisher had also recorded several 2017 episodes of Family Guy, and completed her role in Season 3 of the UK’s Catastrophe.

Appealing as the concept of Patrick Stewart playing a debauchery-prone news anchor might have sounded, it seems Starz’s Blunt Talk has officially burned out. The network has opted not to renew the Seth MacFarlane-Jonathan Ames produced comedy beyond Season 2, completing its original order.

Sing is the latest in 2016’s lineup of animated talking animal movies, and if these new photos are any indication, this musical might be far more charming than the trailers indicate (using pop songs that already feel dated isn’t helping). The stars of the upcoming film posed with their animated counterparts for a series of new images, while some interesting new names have popped up on the cast list.

Jon Favreau has had enough box-office success of late to keep to the movie screens, but Seth MacFarlane’s trip to space has the Jungle Book helmer squarely thinking TV. Favreau will direct and consult on MacFarlane’s new live-action FOX dramedy, set 300 years in the future.

Those rumors from a few months back have (thankfully) proven true, as it would appear that Steven Soderbergh is plotting his first feature film since 2013. Titled Logan Lucky, the heist film reunites Soderbergh with Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, and although Michael Shannon has unfortunately dropped out of the project, a few more actors have joined the lineup.

If Seth MacFarlane’s live-action presence in movies like A Million Ways Ways to Die in the West didn’t thrust the Family Guy creator into the spotlight, how about his own live-action FOX series? We’ll find out, as MacFarlane boldly goes with a new series order for a sci-fi dramedy set among the stars.

The first trailer for Sing has arrived, and it’s filled with stuff you’ll recognize (and probably like): Cute animated animals, the smooth voice of Matthew McConaughey, hit pop songs, music competitions and…that laughably terrible “Butterfly” song that people sometimes put on at parties as an endurance test for their friends (note: these are not good people).

The benchmark for most of TV’s most iconic and enduring animated series seems to be the eventual transition to movies, as we’ve seen with The Simpsons and South Park, but at long last, could Family Guy be far behind? Creator Seth MacFarlane hints it might happen sooner than we realize.

American Dad fans found themselves somewhat concerned by the FOX Family Guy offshoot’s move to TBS last year, but the Smiths can officially take it easy. Not only does American Dad already have 22 new episodes to look forward to in 2016, but TBS has thrown an additional 44 at the wall, keeping the family in business through 2018.

New Starz ‘Blunt Talk’ Trailer and Poster: Patrick Stewart Engages in … Well, Everything

It’s one thing to put Patrick Stewart in a Starz series dubbed Blunt Talk, promoting the dignified X-Men and Star Trek star in all manner of unseemly behavior, but it’s quite another to actually see it in action. Stewart picks up hookers, snorts coke, cuckolds, quotes Oliver Twist, draws dong, and … well, does pretty much everything by the latest trailer.
