It’s a wonder Showtime’s Happyish (previously Trending Down) made it through a first season at all, following the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman and subsequent retooling with Steve Coogan in the lead, but now that persistence seems to have worn off. Showtime has officially canceled Happyish, and we’re only sort of sad-ish about it.

If you thought Judy Greer couldn’t squeeze in another wifely role this summer, Showtime has you covered. The Jurassic World / Tomorrowland / Ant-Man / Married star will join Masters of Sex Season 3 late in its run as that of another notable spouse, but to whom, you ask?
The fifth season of Showtime’s Homeland offered a quick sneak peek of Carrie’s German adventures just before Comic-Con, and now we have an official target date for the next mission. Homeland Season 5 has set an October premiere by its new key art, while critical breakout The Affair will conjure up fluid Season 2 memories on the same date.

Homeland fans haven’t exactly missed Nicholas Brody over the last few seasons, but Damian Lewis is back and smarmy as ever going up against Paul Giamatti in Showtime’s Billions. The high-stakes Wall Street drama has a first trailer, in which we learn the true purpose of “F— You Money.” Enjoy.
Showtime’s Masters of Sex gifted us all with an early Season 3 premiere online, but why stop there? The acclaimed period drama has another treat in store for Walking Dead fans, as fan-favorite alum Emily Kinney will recur through the new season in a surprising new role.
Just in time for the Fourth of July weekend, Showtime had a few extra explosions to spare for Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan Season 3. Before the official July 12 premiere, both summer series have released their full debut episodes online.
Showtime’s The Affair proved a breakout hit with critics through its first season, but will the acclaimed drama succeed or suffer a sophomore slump in Season 2? The first full trailer for the new fall season has arrived, and Pacey Joshua Jackson’s finger guns might spell a deadly end for one of our leads.
Showtime surprised relatively few in getting in on the cord-cutting game with its own independent streaming service, aptly-enough titled “Showtime,” though now the (former) pay-cable network has taken things one step further to create a Hulu bundle.
Showtime’s Penny Dreadful seems horribly short year after year, at only eight or nine episodes apiece, but we can at least count on one more trip through the Demimonde in 2016. Showtime has officially renewed Ethan, Vanessa and their monstrous friends for another round, bringing Penny Dreadful back for Season 3.
