A teaser trailer has arrived online for the second season of the critically-acclaimed Arctic drama series Fortitude; watch it below after the official synopsis…
Fortitude is a place like nowhere else. Surrounded by the savage beauty of the frozen landscape, the small town in the Arctic Circle is one of the safest towns on earth. There had never been a violent crime until one brutal murder revealed a much larger story lying deep beneath this seemingly quiet town.
After last year, Fortitude will never be the same again. As the town’s residents endeavor to rebuild their lives, a fresh new murder rocks the town and plunges it into turmoil oncemore. Meanwhile, out in the stunning icy wilderness, nature is growing more unpredictable, deadly, and dangerous.
In Fortitude, nothing, and no one, is ever what they seem.

Launching last year on both Sky Atlantic in the UK and Pivot in the Us, the Arctic Circle-set mystery thriller "Fortitude" scored good notices for its tale of a murder in a part English, part Norwegian community.
Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine, Richard Dormer, Sofie Grabol and Johnny Harris starred in the series and though ratings weren't great, they were enough to greenlight a second season which is currently slated to hit in early 2017.
Today, the first trailer is out for the second season and confirms the involvement of Dennis Quaid in this outing. Others onboard for the second round including Michelle Fairley ("Game of Thrones"), Robert Sheehan ("Misfits"), Ken Stott ("The Hobbit") and Parminder Nagra ("E.R.") along with returnees like Grabol, Luke Treadaway and Mia Jexen.

Warning: This post contains spoilers from this week’s Outlander. If you’re behind, dinna fash — you can read last week’s recap here.
The Frasers’ Parisian tour of pain continued in the latest Outlander, when Claire delivered a stillborn daughter, nearly died of childbed fever, accidentally sent one of her enemies to his death and then had to have sex with a monarch in order to free her estranged husband from jail. (And you thought you had a rough week.)
The death of Claire and Jamie’s child Faith, as well as the physical and emotional distance between Lady Broch Turach and her husband, »
Even before the Starz adaptation’s first “och” was uttered, readers of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novels knew that Jamie’s rape at the end of Season 1 would be a hard to witness, highly upsetting and barely survivable event for them — let alone Mr. and Mrs. Fraser. In a similar vein, ardent fans have been aware for some time now that a painful swath of Book 2 was barreling its way down the cobblestone path.
That terrible interlude begins in this week’s episode, and if you’re anything like me, »

On the 100th anniversary of the Easter uprising in Ireland, Sundance TV debuts the miniseries “Rebellion,” which may only be of interest to students of Irish history. Even those viewers of this period piece should be prepared to have their patience tested.
“Rebellion,” which is set in 1916 in Dublin, only fitfully supplies a sense of excitement and momentum, and it regularly fails to provide meaningful context for the actions of Irish patriots hoping to free the nation from British rule during World War 1. “Rebellion” clearly aims to create a wide array of viewpoints on this tense period in Irish history, but manages to sabotage itself regularly with questionable pacing and an ungainly bunch of under-developed characters.
There is a slightly heavier focus on a few characters like Elizabeth Butler (Charlie Murphy), a rich young woman who sympathizes with the rebels, and Jimmy Mahon (Brian Gleeson), a socialist leader in the Irish Citizens Army. »

With less than two short months left until Season 6 of Game of Thrones debuts, fans are eagerly awaiting any footage from the new episodes. Today, HBO debuted a behind-the-scenes video, which features several members of the show's camera department, who reveal why their jobs give them "the best seat in the house." The five-minute video does feature plenty of footage from the set, offering brief glimpses at Game of Thrones stars such as Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister), Carice van Houten (Melissandre), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), Michiel Huisman (Daario Naharis) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister).
Unfortunately, these brief behind-the-scenes glimpses don't offer too many details about the story that is unfolding this season, but the first trailer released earlier this month offered quite the cryptic tease. The video showcased the infamous Hall of Faces at the House of Black and White. The Faceless Men use these faces, combined with an array of magical spells, »
In just a few short months, Game of Thrones will return with Season 6, debuting on Sunday, April 24 at 9 Pm Et on HBO. Aside from a few cryptic trailers, photos and posters, we haven't seen much of this new season yet, and HBO hasn't even released an official plot rundown. Fans are even more in the dark this season because the show has caught up to George R.R. Martin's books, and it still isn't known when he'll publish his long-awaited sixth book, The Winds of Winter. IGN caught up with George R.R. Martin, who teased that one of his upcoming books has a twist which won't be able to be used on the series.
"It involves a couple of characters, one of whom is dead on the show but not dead in the books. The show can't do this stuff, because they killed a character that I have not killed. »
Exactly two months from today, fans will finally get to revisit the magical world of Westeros when Game of Thrones debuts its long-awaited Season 6. The producers and network have been more cryptic than usual in promoting the show, offering no official plot details or even confirming new cast members yet, despite a number of casting reports and photos from the set. Earlier today, a new poster debuted, which surprised many fans since it featured the face of Robb Stark (Richard Madden), who was brutally killed during the infamous Red Wedding in Season 3. As it turns out, that one-sheet was just the tip of the iceberg, since HBO has debuted a slew of new posters featuring characters from both Westeros' past and present.
Earlier this month, the network released the first trailer, which showcased the infamous Hall of Faces at the House of Black and White. The Faceless Men use these faces, »
Game of Thrones Season 6 will finally debut on April 24. That's still more than two months away. And in that time, it appears that HBO plans to really mess with fans.The first poster released for these new episodes prominently featured the return of Jon Snow, who's fate has been debated ever since the Game of Thrones Season 5 finale. Now, another long gone character is back. But why?
Obtained exclusively by EW, the latest Game of Thrones poster features Robb Stark's face. Also known as the King of the North, Catelyn and Ned Stark's met his untimely demise all the way back in Game of Thrones Season 3. He fell victim to the infamous Red Wedding massacre. So why is he being featured in the promotional campaign waged by HBO leading up to the big premiere?
At this point, no one is sure except the show creators themselves, and they aren't talking. »
If you've watched NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers over the past two years, you'll likely have learned that host Seth Meyers is an unabashed Game of Thrones fan. The late night host has previously had author George R.R. Martin on as a guest, and last year, he put together a hilarious sketch with Kit Harington as Jon Snow attending a modern-day dinner party. Last night, the host welcomed Carice van Houten, who plays the Red Priestess Melisandre on the beloved HBO series, where they aired another hilarious Game of Thrones-themed sketch featuring Melisandre at a baby shower.
Much like the Jon Snow dinner party, this sketch features a number of references to Game of Thrones. When Melisandre is encouraged to tell a "funny story," she recounts the time she gave birth to a "shadow demon," that then proceeded to kill Renly Baratheon. Obviously, this isn't quite the most traditional baby shower story, »
