We weren’t terribly surprised to see ‘Twin Peaks’ star Kyle MacLachlan step onstage to bring Showtime president David Nevins a damn fine cup of coffee at the recent TCA panel, the prospect of Showtime’s 2016 revival seeming somewhat ludicrous without its former star. The same can’t necessarily be said of the supporting cast, though it seems Laura Palmer herself, Sheryl Lee may return along with Dana Ashbrook and Sherilyn Fenn.
Showtime fans were in for a world of good news today; not only will Dale Cooper lead the ‘Twin Peaks’ revival, but ‘Shameless’ will return for a sixth season! Not enough? Showtime’s ‘Happyish’ has been picked up to series, and will premiere as early as this April!
Showtime shocked us all with the announcement that ‘Twin Peaks’ would return as a series in 2016 under creator David Lynch, though predictably few details were available just yet. Now, the most burning question about the darkly surreal drama’s return has been answered, confirming Kyle MacLachlan’s reprisal of Dale Cooper.
Showtime monster-mash 'Penny Dreadful' scared up an impressive following of fans with its 10-episode first season, but will the Eva Green-Josh Hartnett horror-thriller conjure the same dark magic with its second run in 2015? Get a taste of the horror to come in our first cursed look at Showtime's 'Penny Dreadful' season 2!
It’s been years since we’ve considered the cast of AMC’s ‘Mad Men’ in the market for a new gig, but with Matthew Weiner’s period drama coming to a close after seven final episodes, one of its biggest stars is headed to a new agency. Christina Hendricks has officially joined the pilot cast of ‘Almost Famous’ creator Cameron Crowe’s Showtime ‘Roadies,’ trading Sterling-Cooper for something with a bit more edge.
Over the summer Showtime committed to a pilot order for ‘Almost Famous’ creator Cameron Crowe’s new concert industry dramedy ‘Roadies,’ alongside Bad Robot and executive producer J.J. Abrams, though we haven’t heard much since. Now, the pilot has reportedly set sights on Luke Wilson and Imogen Poots for two of its leading characters, but who might they play?
The last look at 'Shameless' season 5 gave the sinful Showtime series some new footage to tide us over until January 11, but that doesn't stop the Gallaghers from serving up a fresh round of debauchery in the newest sneak peek. See the 'Shameless' crew take on both corporate and counter-culture in the first official season 5 poster, as well as a brand-new teaser with fresh footage and new looks!
Showtime's 'Homeland' has been chugging along in its fourth season sans Brody (well, almost), just as critics have continually raved about adultery drama 'The Affair,' and fans of either should have a bright and sunny 2015. Showtime has officially renewed Carrie Mathison and co. to return for a fifth season next year, continuing its illicit 'Affair' for a second season as well.
Though only October, 2015 will soon be upon us, and with it the return of Showtime Sunday favorites like 'House of Lies' and 'Shameless.' And where the latter skewed a bit darker in season 4 (despite moving to the comedy section for Emmy purposes), the first full trailer for 'Shameless' season 5 sees Fiona and the Gallaghers returning to their destructive ways, with a few new (and returning) faces plenty visible.
The current season of 'Homeland' has been markedly improved by the absence of Damian Lewis (sorry, it's true!), but that wouldn't stop us from welcoming the erstwhile Nicholas Brody back to Showtime. And so it goes, that Emmy-winner Lewis will partner with Oscar-winner Paul Giamatti for a new Showtime Wall Street drama 'Billions,' and they've already got our money.
