Starz’s efforts to take Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience to TV appear to have paid off, but don’t get too attached to any characters from Season 1. The network has officially confirmed an extended renewal for Season 2, albeit one with “entirely new characters and plotlines.”

Lucky attendees of Comic-Con 2016 got to see the full blood-spattered Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 premiere for themselves, but what of us at home? Stuck waiting for October, it seems, so check out an equally bloody new photo from the season, get ready for a major death, and a handsomely familiar returning foe.
The rich history of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead informed a great deal of Starz sequel series Ash Vs. Evil Dead, though producers had earlier noted that rights issues prevented any formal reference to Ash’s medieval third adventure, Army of Darkness. Now, said legal red-tape appears to have been cut for Season 2, which itself will specifically reference the third film.
You’ve waited, and we’ve certainly written enough stories without official photos, but American Gods is finally here! Straight from Comic-Con 2016, the first trailer for Bryan Fuller’s Neil Gaiman adaptation has arrived, plus bonus Pushing Daisies reunion with Kristin Chenoweth!
Starz is certainly transitioning to a stronger foothold in premium cable, to shift its major releases to Sunday, and garner major recognition with the likes of Outlander, American Gods and more, but will now cast off one of its former anchors. Pirate drama Black Sails will officially come to an end after Season 4, the network confirms.
Bruce Campbell may not have earned the Emmy recognition we hoped for, but Ash Vs. Evil Dead has no less reason to celebrate. A new full-length, blood-soaked trailer for Season 2 has arrived ahead of Comic-Con 2016, as Ash’s Jacksonville retirement comes to a gruesome end. Hail to the king once more, baby!
You’ve seen Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday, you’ve seen Mad Sweeney and the Technical Boy. Now, ahead of Starz’s American Gods debut at Comic-Con, sneak a peek at Yetide Badaki as the terrifying love goddess Bilquis, along with an official logo for the Bryan Fuller series, and more to come.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has gone far enough into production for photos and a first trailer to arrive next week, that we wouldn’t necessarily expect any more significant additions to the cast. Not so, apparently, as comedian Dane Cook has apparently snagged a role in the new series, set to bow in 2017. Yes, Dane Cook.
The cast of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is an eclectic one, to say the least, while the first photos of Bryan Fuller’s Starz adaptation offered a taste of this wild, weird and colorful world. If you want to get Technical, take a look at the newest photo ahead of Comic-Con 2016, as Technical Boy gets a (retro) upgrade for 2017.
We knew Ash Vs. Evil Dead would pull the chainsaw cord anew for a Comic-Con 2016 appearance, but who wants to wait weeks for fresh blood? Season 2 is already here withe a new rip-roaring trailer, chock-full of all the blood, guts, glory (and puppets?!) we’ve come to expect from Sam Raimi’s iconic hero.
