The secrecy of Twin Peaks can surely drive fans to madness, thus far only confirming a premiere in early 2017, but there’s good news. Not only has Naomi Watts been confirmed to reunite with creator David Lynch for the Showtime revival, but Lynch too will reprise his on-camera role, among other additions.
It’d take quite a flop for hotshot premium cable dramas not to earn a Season 2 pickup these days, and Showtime’s Billions isn’t exactly hurting for cash. Following a major debut for the network, the high-stakes financial drama has been confirmed for a second season to air in 2017.
Homeland Season 5 deliberately left us on an ambiguous note regarding Rupert Friend’s fan-favorite Quinn, and news that Carrie would relocate to New York for Season 6 kept up our curiosity. Showtime offered a few cryptic teases, yes, but now seemingly confirms that Rupert Friend will be back for Season 6.
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!
Since leaving behind the Brodys, Showtime seems to have set Homeland on a yearly reboot schedule, first moving to Islamabad, and most recently relocating Carrie to Germany, so where will the international terror drama set up shop in Season 6? Domestically, it turns out, living up to the Homeland name with a move to New York City, and an eye on “many more seasons to come.”
Showtime’s Twin Peaks has given us a bit of whiplash in its development, but may finally zero in on a 2017 premiere. According to network heads, David Lynch has gotten halfway through production, with an eye to air sometime before summer 2017.
Showtime may be keeping secrets on its Twin Peaks revival, but even the original series managed to hide the famous Diane that Kyle MacLachlan’s Coop seemed to always record messages for. Now, the obscure figure may finally step into the light, as Laura Dern joins the series for a major role.
Officially speaking, Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival has only been willing to confirm Kyle MacLachlan’s return as Agent Dale Cooper, though who would doubt David Lynch to re-gather the iconic cast? Coop may be on his toes once more, now that Sherilyn Fenn has seemingly set her return as the devilish Audrey Horne.
The 2016 TV season has officially begun, and Showtime is already getting a jump on the other networks with Shameless and new financial drama Billions. The full premieres for both have been made available on multiple platforms, if you’re into that whole free premium TV thing.
The well seems to have run pretty dry for new TV in 2015, so Showtime will step in to give its 2016 lineup an early jump. Not only will Shameless fans be able to catch the Season 6 premiere as early as New Years Day, and without a Showtime subscription at that, but so too will the network release high-powered finance drama Billions ahead of schedule.
