Considering the standout series debuts of last year, we're most excited to see the return of Showtime's 'Masters of Sex.' Now, the latest full-length season 2 trailer has arrived to continue the trials of William Masters (Martin Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), and it looks as if their secret might be out before long!
Showtime has been a bit light on comedy since production on Philip Seymour Hoffman's 'Happy-ish' ceased for obvious reasons, but the network has some major names in mind for its latest effort. 'Almost Famous' visionary Cameron Crowe will make his TV debut with the J.J. Abrams-produced music comedy 'Roadies,' now officially picked up for a network pilot.
This summer will see Hollywood fixer 'Ray Donovan' paired up with Showtime's 'Masters of Sex' for the second season of either series, and things are only heating up. Not only has the first full 'Ray Donovan' trailer arrived, towing a heap of new guest stars, but William Masters and Virginia Johnson are front and center in some racy new looks at 'Masters of Sex' season 2.
More than ever we're looking forward to 'Homeland' season 4 as it will be a reboot of sorts for the series, with the events of season 3 finale "The Star" teasing new settings and crises to come beyond Nicholas Brody. Now, following the additions of Corey Stoll and Laila Robins, 'Homeland' season 4 has gone even further to add 'Smash''s Raza Jaffrey and 'Roseanne' alum and 'Caddyshack' star Michael O'Keefe.
We haven't made very much of Showtime's "psychosexual" monster-mash drama, 'Penny Dreadful,' since its debut a few weeks ago, but it seems the network wanted to make sure that scary Victorian creatures wouldn't go quietly into the night. Showtime officially renewed the Josh Hartnett-Eva Green period drama for season 2, expanding the initial episode order for 2015, as well.
We've known for some time that Showtime drama 'Homeland' would undergo something of a renaissance in season 4, and while we won't see any fresh episodes until September, the first new cast members have arrived. 'House of Cards' breakout and 'The Strain' star Corey Stoll has been added to the recurring cast, along with Laila Robins as a new series regular.
Just when we thought Showtime's 'Master of Sex' season 2 had scored its most impressive casting to date in comedian Sarah Silverman, the buzzworthy breakout period drama has added three more names to an already-stuffed roster. Joining Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan for the second coming of 'Masters of Sex' will be 'Smash' star Christian Borle, 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' favorite Rene Auberjoinois, and 'Flash Forward' star Courtney B. Vance.
We heard rumblings of the proposed 'Halo' TV series from Microsoft's Xbox and producer Stephen Spielberg for quite some time, the last of which suggested the serial adaptation would land on Showtime. Now, with the announcement of the 'Halo 5: Guardians' game, new word suggests the TV series will bow around the same period, fall 2015.
We were excited to discover that Showtime's breakout period drama 'Masters of Sex' would return for a second season this July, rather than keep to its prior September airdate, and it seems the premium cable network keeps the stimulation coming. Check out all the punches, fornication and fame to come from the first trailer for 'Masters of Sex' season 2!
It's been forever and a day since we've heard about any real momentum behind the proposed 'Halo' TV series under Stephen Spielberg, which originally had been set as the first of Microsoft Xbox's original content, and now we may know why. A new report suggests the 'Halo' TV series might land on Showtime instead, as part of a unique deal that has taken time to put together.
