We might not miss him on Homeland, but Damian Lewis is officially staying within the Showtime family. The Emmy-winner will officially join Paul Giamatti, Sons of Anarchy star Maggie Siff and more for Showtime’s new finance drama Billions, given an official series order for 2016.

More and more cord-cutting seems to prove a viable option, especially now that HBO has made the leap to offer its own independent streaming-service, beginning with Apple this spring. Now, a new report suggests Apple will plan its own independent streaming platform for approximately 25 channels, due to become available this fall.
Apart from ending on a whimper, few would argue of Homeland’s fourth season that a rebooted focus on Carrie as an international intelligence officer revitalized the Emmy-winner out of its Brody boredom, but will the same hold true of Season 5? The Showtime drama’s producers are apparently planning a major time-jump for the next run, along with literal and figurative changes to Carrie’s landscape.
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!
