At long last, Andy Samberg’s HBO followup to tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell is finally here, as the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star takes on the world of competitive cycling. Watch the star-studded first trailer for Tour de Pharmacy, which itself is already doping up for a July premiere.
Well, there was no way The Last Man on Earth would end on a cliffhanger, or that Gotham would wrap up Batman’s beginning before Batman begins. As such, FOX confirms that both series will return for fourth seasons this fall.
There’s no one way to conclude stories set after the world’s end, but The Last Man on Earth certainly can’t leave us on Season 3’s finale cliffhanger. Season 4 is not yet confirmed, but creator and star Will Forte is at least optimistic SNL chum Kristen Wiig will get to reprise her major appearance next year.
The Last Man on Earth isn’t a show defined by its end-of-the-world mythology, but last week’s Kristen Wiig-centric “Got Milk?” filled in a few blanks with regard to the virus’ 2019 debut, including the successive deaths of President Mike Pence, Paul Ryan and so on. Trump’s name was deliberately excluded, though creator and star Will Forte now weighs in on the gag’s origin, and what became of the 45th President.
Three seasons in, The Last Man on Earth has revealed little of its history, only occasionally referencing the fact that the series takes place some time after 2023. As such, the Will Forte apocalypse comedy occasionally gets to have fun with our future history, as last night revealed the fate of the 46th president, and his entire staff.
We still don’t know if SNL and MacGruber pals Kristen Wiig and Will Forte will ever reunite for that MacGruber sequel, but FOX’s The Last Man on Earth will nonetheless get the two back onscreen. See for yourself, as a new Last Man promo for March reveals Wiig’s mysterious character, and apparent affinity for the ‘80s.
It’s been a good long while since Bill Murray brought us a Netflix Christmas special, and who better than Michael Bolton and The Lonely Island to take us through Valentine’s Day? See for yourself in a full trailer for Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special, chock full of stars, and already available to stream for next week.
Near of the world’s entire population dies of a virus, and The Last Man on Earth still manages to run into celebrity after celebrity. The latest offers another SNL (and MacGruber!) reunion, as Kristen Wiig will appear on Last Man in a top-secret role later in Season 3.
Foreign films have historically done pretty well in the Best Animated Feature category at the Academy Awards, with at least one import usually squeezing into the nominations alongside the latest pictures from Disney or Pixar. Last year included Brazil’s Boy and the World as well as Japan’s When Marnie Was There, and while the likes of Kubo and the Two Strings, Moana, Finding Dory and Zootopia have all but sewn up their nominations for the 2017 ceremony (check back on the 24th to find out!), that leaves room for one wild card. It could be The Red Turtle, the latest animated film with a Studio Ghibli pedigree, or it could be a poignant and sweet little Swiss picture My Life as a Zucchini.
‘MacGruber 2’ has become one of those lifelong dreams that by this point, only seems further from the realm of possibility. Will Forte and writer Jorma Taccone have been talking about a sequel to their 2010 comedy for years, even teasing fans with their super awesome idea for a cold open. But now, finally, the clouds have parted and the sun has shined down on a script for ‘MacGruber 2.’
