Bryan Fuller is no stranger to remixing and re-imagining established canon, as we’ll soon re-learn with Starz’s long-gestating adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Now, a new photo reveals a fresh addition to Shadow Moon’s opposing deities, as Corbin Bernsen takes a role as the unofficial God of Guns.
Appealing as the concept of Patrick Stewart playing a debauchery-prone news anchor might have sounded, it seems Starz’s Blunt Talk has officially burned out. The network has opted not to renew the Seth MacFarlane-Jonathan Ames produced comedy beyond Season 2, completing its original order.
If anything seemed amiss about the Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 finale, it might have something to do with the original pitch being completely vetoed by producer Bob Tapert. Now, departing showrunner Craig DiGregorio gets brutally candid about the original plan for Ash and Kelly, as well as a Back to the Future II-style return to the original Evil Dead.
Few would argue that Deadwood alum Ian McShane made inspired casting for Bryan Fuller’s American Gods, but things could have been much, much weirder. According to Nicolas Cage (yes, that Nicolas Cage, just for re-emphasis), Starz’s hotly-anticipated series nearly cast him as Mr. Wednesday.
You didn’t think that Ash’s battle against the Deadites would be over by Season 2, did you? Only one episode into our second year of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, and Starz is already pulling the starter cord on a third season due to arrive in 2017.
Since when has Ash Williams ever struck you as the patient type? Rather than wait until Sunday for Ash Vs. Evil Dead to resume its war against the Deadites in Season 2, you can pick up the chainsaw right now, as Starz releases the full premiere online early.
It wasn’t terribly surprising of Starz to cap its Treasure Island prequel Black Sails at a healthy four seasons, given the programming shift to Sundays and several major incoming dramas, but don’t expect the pirate drama to go quietly. See for yourself in the first official Season 4 trailer of the final year, ahead of a January premiere.
At least some part of the year will always be spent in #Droughtlander, but the wait will end sooner than you think. As Outlander Season 3 begins production in Scotland, take a look at the first Starz photo, as well as a fresh synopsis for Book 3.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31. Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
The first season of Starz’s Ash Vs. Evil Dead wonderfully picked up with the title character after decades of absence, and Season 2 will expand the history of our aging stockboy lothario even more. A new inside look at Season 2 takes Ash and co. back to his hometown of Elk Grove, picking up a bit of history left behind by the original Sam Raimi films.
