Divisive Showtime drama The Affair has a bit to prove in its second season, and isn’t going to wait for its October premiere. Rather than airing on October 4 with Season 5 of Homeland, The Affair has released its full Season 2 premiere to YouTube over a week ahead of schedule.
More and more each year, TV executives quake in their stylish, yet affordable boots over the exponential increase in peak TV, even as us ravenous viewers eagerly take it all in. Fall 2015 is no exception, cramming your DVR with everything from superheroes new and old, to Scream-ing gore-fests, animated staples and so much more. You’d need some sort of … television … guidance … periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you, we’ve compiled over 30 of Fall 2015's biggest must-see premieres. Remember to sleep, and take in the onslaught of fall 2015's TV madness by our full preview!
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.
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.
Conflicted accounts may rule the day on Showtime's steamy marital drama 'The Affair,' but the HFPA is on board for either side. The 2015 Golden Globes have officially granted Best TV Drama to 'The Affair,' just two months after the show was granted its second season.
Showtime's 'Homeland' has been chugging along in its fourth season sans Brody (well, almost), just as critics have continually raved about adultery drama 'The Affair,' and fans of either should have a bright and sunny 2015. Showtime has officially renewed Carrie Mathison and co. to return for a fifth season next year, continuing its illicit 'Affair' for a second season as well.
Welcome back to another installment of the Monday Morning Critic. In this space each week, I’ll be looking at the week that was in addition to the week ahead in television. The format will shift each week, as the world of TV will dictate the form and content of each piece. In this week’s installment, I look at the premieres of ‘The Affair’ and ‘Jane The Virgin,’ plus reveal which couple violates my strict “anti-shipping” policy.
More than just our first trailer for 'Homeland' season 4 and an update on the 'Dexter' spinoff (still never, folks), Showtime's TCA presentation brought with it plenty of good news. For one, sexy Joshua Jackson-Maura Tierney-Dominic West drama 'The Affair' has its first trailer and premiere date, while the late Philip Seymour Hoffman's 'Happyish' comedy may see the light of day after all.
While HBO will be losing a number of major series in the coming year, Showtime's own loss of 'Dexter' and the impending 'Californication' has necessitated some new blood of its own. Enter Philip Seymour Hoffman's new dark dramedy, 'Happyish,' and 'Fringe' star Joshua Jackon's steamy new drama, 'The Affair,' both picked up to series for the near future!
Cast all the 'Fringe' stars on premium cable! Just weeks after we marveled at the news that 'Fringe' star Anna Torv would take a leading role in Ryan Murphy's HBO sexuality drama 'Open,' Torv's co-star Joshua Jackson has followed suit with a scandalous role of his own in Showtime's adult drama 'The Affair.' Throw in a Starz series for John Noble, and we've got bingo!
