‘Sense8’ Season 2 Images: More Drama, More Action, More Mind-Bending Psychic Stuff

Sense8 season 2 images / 202 - Lito, Capheus, Sun

With apologies to my loved ones, the best Christmas gift I got last year was the Sense8 holiday special. It had been over a year since the first season hit Netflix, and the two-hour extravaganza had everything I’d hoped for from the return — drama, action, romance, tons of earnest metaphysical nonsense, and, yes, even a meticulously choreographed orgy. Best of all, it heralded the arrival of even more episodes to come in the new year, with Sense8 season 2 scheduled to hit in May.

Of course, May’s still a ways away. But Netflix isn’t leaving us completely high and dry. They’ve just dropped a big batch of Sense8 season 2 images, teasing more good times, more bad times, and lots of sweet cluster meetings that are probably going to make me cry. Flip through the new photos below.

Sense8 Season 2 Images

Sense8 201 - Kala (Tina Desai) Sense8 201 - Riley Blue (Tuppence Middleton) Sense8 201 - Sun (Doona Bae) Sense8 202 - Amanita, Sun, Nomi Sense8 202 - Lito and sensates Sense8 202 - Lito, Capheus, Sun Sense8 203 - Wolfgang and sensates Sense8 204 - Kala in crowd Sense8 206 - Riley (Tuppence Middleton) in market Sense8 206 - Riley outside Sense8 206 - sensates at parade Sense8 208 - Wolfgang and sensates Sense8 210 - Lito and Daniela

It’s tough to glean much from these photos, but it looks like Lito will continue dealing with the fallout of his outing and Sun will continue her stint in jail, while Riley will spend a lot of time standing around outside in the same brown sweater. I’m really looking forward to the episode shot at São Paulo Pride last summer — the celebration looks like a nice respite from the heavy drama that’s usually coming our sensates.

The new season of Sense8 brings back Tina Desai as Kala, Miguel Ángel Silvestre as Lito, Jamie Clayton as Nomi, Tuppence Middleton as Riley, Brian J. Smith as Will, and Max Riemelt as Wolfgang, with Toby Onwumere replacing Aml Ameen as Capheus. (“New barber,” says Capheus by way of explanation after one character points out he’s looking different these days.) Lana Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski are back as writers and producers, although co-creator Lilly Wachowski is sitting out this season.

Sense8 returns for season 2 on May 5. Here’s the synopsis:

Picking up where season one left off, Capheus, Kala, Lito, Nomi, Riley, Sun, Will and Wolfgang come together both physically and mentally, plunged into the middle of each other’s tragedies and triumphs. On the run from Whispers, and forced to question their very identity, it’s a matter of survival as the Sensates must find a way to live with, understand and protect one another against all odds.

‘American Horror Story’ New Season To Be About Election. What Are Likely Filming Locations?

FX’s wildly popular anthology horror series American Horror Story has covered a wide range of concepts, from haunted houses, hotels, asylums and freak shows. Still, no one could have guessed what topic creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk would tackle for the series’ upcoming seventh season: the recent U.S. presidential election. The news, which was announced by Murphy on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live is noteworthy for many reasons. None of the previous seasons have been so blatantly inspired by real-life events like this one. While the first season of American Crime Story tackled the O.J. Simpson murder trial to much critical acclaim, that was done over decades after the case. Here, Murphy and Falchuk are tackling a very contentious election when the dust has barely begun to settle. Second, the fact that this is part of the American Horror Story franchise adds further intrigue. The results of the 2016 election upset many, but to put in the context of a horror series is especially eye-opening. It isn’t clear what direction will be taken with this season. It’s likely that Murphy and Falchuk will take creative license on real life happenings to give them a shocking twist (or two) that..

The Mick Renewed for a Second Season!

The Mick Renewed for a Second Season!

The Mick renewed for a second season!

FOX has announced today that their hit new comedy The Mick, starring Kaitlin Olson, has been renewed for a second season.

“From the earliest stages of development, all of us at FOX had enormous faith in The Mick, and it hasn’t disappointed,” said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Kaitlin is a fearless comedic force, and the rest of the cast has just proven to be phenomenal. John and Dave Chernin have a very clear vision of what this show is, and they execute on that vision each week to perfection. We really couldn’t be happier with THE MICK, and we’re so thrilled to renew the series for a second season.”

Delivering an average Multi-Platform audience of eight million viewers, The Mick is a comedy about an unapologetic degenerate (Kaitlin Olson) who suddenly finds herself stuck raising her spoiled niece (Sofia Black-D’Elia, The Night Of) and nephews (Thomas Barbusca, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life; newcomer Jack Stanton) in affluent Greenwich, CT. It’s pretty much everything she never wanted. Regardless, she’s determined to rise to the occasion and transform these little monsters into honest, hard-working, decent members of society – something she knows absolutely nothing about. The series also stars Carla Jimenez (Last Man Standing) and newcomer Scott MacArthur.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, The Mick was created/written by John Chernin and Dave Chernin of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The Chernin brothers, Nicholas Frenkel and Oly Obst, along with Randall Einhorn, who directed the pilot episode, are executive producers. Kaitlin Olson is a co-executive producer on the series.

‘The Leftovers’ Season 3 Trailer: It’s Getting Downright Apocalyptic Out There

the leftovers season 3 trailer

In its second season, HBO’s The Leftovers reinvented itself. While the first season, noteworthy for its unrelenting grimness and incredible sense of dread, made for gripping and divisive television, the second season did something remarkable: it became fun. And more importantly, it became fun without sacrificing that uncomfortable tone and those complicated characters and the overwhelming sense that nothing is okay and it never well be okay and everyone is going to die.

So when I watch the new trailer for the show’s third and final season, I find myself filled with equal amounts of dread and giddiness – we’re all going to have a great time feeling really bad.

Like the first season 3 teaser, this trailer is heavy on suffocating atmosphere and light on plot, promising that the Garvey clan’s journey to Australia will be fraught with spiritual mayhem and apocalyptic imagery. Season 2 featured Justin Theroux‘s Kevin Garvey literally escaping the afterlife after being murdered, so the grand finale is going to have to find a way to top that special kind of insanity.

While it’s hard to make too much sense of what’s going on amidst that imagery, one thing is very clear: both Theroux and Carrie Coon will have plenty of opportunities to put on their despair faces. And no one on television wears despair faces quite like those two.

The big question is whether or not The Leftovers season 3 will choose to fully address the various impossible events that have cropped up over the past two years, or do as the theme song suggests and “let the mystery be.” After all, this has always been a show that has been less about understanding the world and more about understanding that you will never understand the world.

In any case, series showrunner Damon Lindelof has been giving a lot of thought about how they’ll end the show:

The big thing we gotta figure out for season three is: Where are we going to end it? What’s the last episode of this series going to be? We’ll design the entire season basically building up to that moment. I think there was a very purposeful circularity between seasons one and two, with the ‘wherever you go, there you are’ theme of it all. We decided to end the second season very similar to the first season. The Garveys felt like they could pickup and go to this place the Departure didn’t happen, but lo and behold, the same exact thing happened. The only safe place is the place you’re surrounded by the people you love. We can’t do that again, and not just because the audience is expecting it, but because we were telling a story about geography in season two, while season three is going to be something else entirely.

The end begins for The Leftovers on April 16, 2017.

Ryan Murphy says next American Horror Story to be based on 2016 election

The theme of the next season of American Horror Story‘s seventh season isn’t a mystery any longer. Creator and producer Ryan Murphy just revealed the theme during a guest spot on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. According to Murphy, season seven of the show will be based on the 2016 election cycle. What could be scarier than that?

When asked by Cohen about whether he had any new American Horror Story news, Murphy replied, “Well, I don’t have a title, but the season we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through. So, I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.” Cohen asked if there would “be, like a Trump in it,” Murphy responded, “Uh, maybe.”

Murphy was on the show promoting his new FX series Feud: Bette and Joan about the filming of Joan Crawford, played by Jessica Lange (an American Horror Story alum), and Bette Davis, played by Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise) during the filming of the Academy Award-winning film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Previous seasons of American Horror Story have included Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel and Roanoke.

American Horror Story was renewed for two more seasons back in January. The series has a number of recurring actors between seasons and Sarah Paulson (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) and Evan Peters (X-Men: Days of Future Past) have already been confirmed to return.

If there does end up being a Donald Trump-based character in season 7, who would you like to see play him? Would it be any of the recurring actors from earlier seasons? Let us know your thoughts on who should get the role in the comments or tweet us @Comingsoonnet. Watch the video from Watch What Happens Live below.

Superstore Has Been Renewed for Season Three

Superstore season 3 is heading to NBC.

NBC has officially announced Superstore season 3

There’s some great news today for fans of NBC‘s Superstore as the network has revealed that the Justin Spitzer comedy will return for a third season with another 22 half hour episodes.

Superstore centers around Amy (America Ferrera), the store’s most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together. Jonah (Ben Feldman), who is often the target of his colleagues ribbing, is joined on the floor with his fellow associates, including sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn), the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos) and sweet teenager and new mom Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom). Overseeing the store is Glenn (Mark McKinney), the affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron fist.

From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans, to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions.

“We are extremely proud of ‘Superstore,’ which is one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television today,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “Through the show’s expertly drawn characters, our producers and cast do a remarkable job touching on many issues in which audiences can relate. To its credit, not only does ‘Superstore’ make us laugh, but it makes us think as well.”

So far this season, Superstore originals have averaged a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.7 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research, lifting the network +29% above its 1.4 average in the Thursday 8 p.m. half-hour last season in 18-49 (excluding sports). Last summer a special post-Olympic telecast of Superstore delivered 9.7 million viewers, making it broadcast TV’s most-watched Friday comedy in 12 years.

Last season Superstore ranked as NBC’s #1 show on digital platforms, generating more than 33 million full-episode views on Hulu, NBC.com and video on demand.

Superstore was created and written by Justin Spitzer, who also serves as an executive producer with director Ruben Fleischer, David Bernad and Gabe Miller & Jonathan Green. Superstore is produced by Universal Television, Spitzer Holding Company and The District.

Michael C. Hall to Play JFK in ‘The Crown’ Season 2

Michael C Hall JFK

Literally dozens of actors have played John F. Kennedy onscreen over the past several decades. Just in the past year, we’ve seen Caspar Phillipson play him in Jackie and Jeffrey Donovan take on the role in LBJ. Now Michael C. Hall will join that ever-expanding list, playing the 35th U.S. president in the next season of Netflix’s The Crown. Joining him will be Jodi Balfour as First Lady Jackie Kennedy, and Matthew Goode as Princess Margaret’s husband Anthony Armstrong-Jones.

Deadline reported the news. Created by Peter Morgan (The QueenFrost/Nixon), The Crown is a biographical drama about Queen Elizabeth II, played by Claire Foy. (If you’re like me and bad at keeping track of British royalty, yes, she is the one who’s still on the throne.) The first season chronicled her life from her marriage to Prince Philip (

The first season chronicled her life from her marriage to Prince Philip (Matt Smith) in 1947 through the end of her sister Margaret’s engagement to Peter Townsend in 1955. The second season is expected to pick up with the Suez Crisis in 1956, with the British army fighting an illegal war in Egypt. It’ll continue through the dawn of the ’60s, and conclude with the resignation of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan in 1963. To put Kennedy’s career in context, he was inaugurated in 1961 and assassinated in 1963, just a few weeks after Townsend stepped down.

The Crown‘s JFK is described as…

… a natural leader and excellent public speaker who does not take kindly to being upstaged by anyone, especially his wife. Although Jackie’s accomplishments are perceived to be an asset to the president, JFK feels unmanned by his wife’s popularity. In public, he seeks revenge by flaunting his many infidelities and, behind closed doors, his jealousy surfaces in the form of anger and manipulation.

It’s not hard to see the thematic parallels between the Kennedy’s rocky relationship and Elizabeth’s own marriage to Philip, as depicted in season one. The show’s version of Jackie, meanwhile, is a “seemingly natural First Lady” whose “charming exterior of confidence and glamor hides a shy woman who loathes public life.” Rounding out this batch of casting is Goode as Armstrong-Jones, “a charming, passionate and avant-garde photographer who knows all the right people” and enjoys “bohemian and sexually liberal lifestyle.” Basically, prepare for the 1960s to shake things up in a big way.

Shooting on The Crown season 2 is already underway. No premiere date has been announced.

New Stranger Things Season 2 photos and plot details

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the cover for their latest issue, featuring the cast of Stranger Things and offering another look at the upcoming second season with some brand-new photos. Check them all out below!

In addition, details on the plot for the new season was revealed such as Will Byer’s visions of the Upside Down.

“He seems to be seeing images from the Upside Down—the question is whether they’re real or not,” says co-creator Matt Duffer. “So it seems like he’s having some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder.”

The outlet also revealed that Winona Ryder’s Joyce has a new love interest with Sean Astin as an old high school classmate named Bob. There’s also the arrival of the new brother-sister pair of Billy and Max, played by Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink, with Billy becoming a new antagonist to the boys and Max something of a love interest for Lucas and Dustin.

Chief of Police Jim Hopper will be busy in the new season as he tries to keep the events of the first season a secret.

“It kind of falls on Hopper to be the voice of authority to say, ‘This did happen and this didn’t happen,’” David Harbour said. “He’s struggling with the compromise that takes him to, having to lie and cover things up.”

There’s also the matter of Paul Reiser’s Dr. Owens, the new man in charge of the city’s mysterious Lab, but also Dustin’s new pet that’s not of this Earth.

“It’s a little creature I get to bond with,” says Matarazzo. “It’s obviously not from this planet or this dimension.”

The second season, which will premiere on Halloween 2017, is set a year after Will’s return, and everything seems back to normal… but a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.

Stranger Things Season 2 will star Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine. New cast additions include Sadie Sink (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Dacre Montgomery (the Red Ranger in the upcoming Power Rangers movie), Brett Gelman (Blunt TalkThe Other Guys), newcomer Linnea Berthelsen, and ’80s icons Sean Astin (The Goonies) and Paul Reiser (Aliens).
