New Us sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows for 2016

15 July 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...

The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.

So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.

Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

Aka Jessica Jones (Netflix)

Part of Netflix’s own connected slice of the McU, there has been a lot of confusion over when we »

Comic-Con 2015: Salem Renewed for Third Season

12 July 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Plenty of devious plans for future Salem episodes were discussed at the show's roundtables that Daily Dead took part in at Comic-Con, and now some of those ideas could move forward on the small screen, as Wgn America has officially renewed their witchcraft series for a third season.

Press Release: "The magic continues for Wgn America’s original, breakout hit series “Salem,” with the announcement made today at Comic-Con International: San Diego by the cast and creative team that the supernatural thriller has been renewed for a third season.  The captivating one-hour drama, from Fox 21 Television Studios and creators and writers Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, boldly reimagines the infamous 17th century witch trials in colonial Massachusetts in a world where witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem to be.  The third season will begin production in Shreveport, La later this year for a 2016 debut. »

‘Tyrant’ Season 2: Howard Gordon on Real-World Impact, ‘Game of Thrones’ Comparisons

16 June 2015 8:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From shifting filming locations to shifting directors, the first season of FX’s Middle East-set “Tyrant” was known to have just as much drama off-screen as it did on-screen. Much of the former seems to have been smoothed out for season two, as Variety TV critic Brian Lowry notes in his review. But that hasn’t stopped co-creator Howard Gordon from stressing that, despite a resume that includes “Homeland” and “24,” this political/family drama about two brothers vying to be the one to carry on their father’s legacy is the toughest show he’s ever done.

With “Tyrant’s” season two premiere now aired, Gordon elaborated on this for Variety, as well as about the show’s real-world connection and comparisons to a certain HBO show about a battle for control of a throne.

Tyrant” airs at 10 p.m. Tuesdays on FX. Fans should stop reading if they have »

‘Tyrant’ Season 2 Review: Retooled Series Now Seethes With High Stakes & Isis

16 June 2015 3:43 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Back for a second season starting tonight at 10 Pm on FX, Tyrant has shed a lot of its old skin and successfully streamlined itself into a compelling soap that also steps onto some of the deadliest geopolitical territory of our times. To that end, as my video review above says, the series created by Gideon Raff and co-developed and produced by Howard Gordon, now pumps with blood. It also seethes with a high-stakes threat as the fictional Middle Eastern nation of Abbudin… »

TV Review: ‘Tyrant,’ Season 2

14 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The quagmire of the Middle East appeared to engulf the first season of “Tyrant,” an FX drama that dropped an expatriate and his absurdly dense American family into the turmoil of his fictional native country. The new episodes, however, reflect a fairly impressive turnaround, significantly diminishing, if not wholly expunging, much of the stupidity, while echoing real-life events in provocative ways. Still not a great show, this project from Gideon Raff and Howard Gordon suddenly exhibits the potential to become a fairly entertaining one, with the disclaimer that the terrain still contains an abundance of storytelling sand traps.

Lest anyone forget the events of season one, pediatrician Barry Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner) returned to his birthplace of Abbudin for a family wedding, bringing along his wife (Jennifer Finnegan) and two clueless children (Noah Silver, Anne Winters), who were apparently raised without the benefit of books or cable news. When Barry’s father, »

Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub Discuss Living Another Day and the Future of ’24’

12 June 2015 4:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Kiefer Sutherland said he was most nervous to re-enter the world of “24” because of the challenge of making something as great as the original show.

Sutherland was joined by co-star Mary Lynn Rajskub and executive producers Mannie Coto and Howard Gordon at a screening of the final episode of “24: Live Another Day” at the Landmark on Thursday. “Live Another Day” is a miniseries set four years after the events of the eighth season of “24.”

“I think we managed to do eight seasons of 24 episodes each year, and we managed to get out with some dignity and we were proud of it,” Sutherland said. “All of a sudden I felt the pressure of, ‘Oh my God, if this is not as good or better than what we’ve done before then we’re in real real trouble.'”

Sutherland said although he thinks “24” can continue with a new cast, the »

Tyrant Season 2 Review

12 June 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided for reviewing purposes prior to broadcast.

If there was anything you could say about Tyrant‘s freshman season, it’s that as a show on a basic cable network, is was pretty unique. Set in the fictional foreign country of Abbudin, the show followed Bassam “Barry” Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner) and his quest back home after twenty years absent – in which he turned into a crunchy granola suburban dad with a wife and two kids – and his subsequent attempts to keep his hotheaded brother Jamal (Ashraf Barhom) from descending Abbudin into chaos.

It was topical and interesting and a slight slow-burn, all the ingredients for good grown-up entertainment, but iffy writing and poor pacing made it ring constantly hollow. Its best, most interesting storylines either going nowhere – Barry’s son Sammy (Noah Silver) and his fling with family bodyguard Abdul – or dragging out far too long for even a 10-episode season. »

‘Homeland’ Editor on the Season’s Most High-Stakes Episode

9 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If you feel like you’re watching too much violence on television and in movies, try being Jordan Goldman.

He was tasked with editing “13 Hours in Islamabad.” The 10th episode in the fourth season of Showtime’s Emmy-winning “Homeland,” it’s perhaps better known as “the one where stuff went down.”

The tension-fueled episode saw a security breach result in a hostage takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan. Casualties amass for both sides and there is a serious amount of gunfire.

“I had this really bizarre experience when I was cutting the episode,” Goldman says. “At work it felt so real. You go home at night and it’s all fiction.” He says he’d leave the editing bay wondering, “Why isn’t anyone talking about what just happened?”

Despite the Ptsd by proxy, Goldman, who began his career on FX’s “The Shield” and won an Emmy »

Fox looking to spin off ’24’ with a new lead character

2 June 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Fox’s thriller series 24 came on to the scene in 2001 with a unique concept that set it apart from most shows; each episode took place in real-time, with a clock ticking down to denote the hour in each episode, and the events of each season taking place over the course of one day. The show spawned a movie in 2008, titled 24: Redemption, before its cancellation in 2010. However, the series did not end there, as it was brought back in 2014 for a shortened ninth season, titled 24: Live Another Day. Now news has emerged that the series will be returning, but without its main ingredient, lead character Jack Bauer.

In a discussion with TVLine at the Critics Choice Television awards,  24‘s executive producer Howard Gordon said that a spinoff of the series was currently in the works, this time focusing on a twentysomething leading male character who is being called a »

'24' Spinoff in Works, For Now Without Jack Bauer

2 June 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The clock has started to tick on a new spinoff of the popular Fox series "24." TV Line is reporting showrunner Howard Gordon confirmed a new twenty-something lead will be cast for a new "24" limited series, one with the potential for a long-term property. Manny Coto and Evan Katz (last year's miniseries "24: Live Another Day") have been hired as writers and executive producers on the spinoff. Series star Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer) is not currently in the plans to join the new project as a regular, though TV Line says a guest appearance is not out of the question. The same goes for Yvonne Strahovski, who played Kate Morgan in "24: Live Another Day." The report also says a more experienced female agent will also be a part of the spinoff's cast. "24" continues to be one of the more beloved TV properties of the last decade, so a Jack Bauer-less »

Dammit! 24 to return without Jack Bauer

2 June 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The real-time spy action thriller is coming back without Kiefer Sutherland’s iconic rogue agent racing against the clock, probably with a hip, young interloper

In his time, Jack Bauer survived torture, kidnap, heroin addiction, relentless bereavement, exposure to a weaponised Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease pathogen, actual nuclear explosions and shared screen time with Freddie Prinze Jr. However, Jack Bauer is just a man, and now the time has come for him to face the one enemy not even he can defeat – the fickle whims of market forces out to capture the desirable 18-to-30 demographic.

A new spin-off series of 24 was announced by executive producer Howard Gordon yesterday. Usually, this would be a cause for celebration. After all, there are few joys in life as pure as seeing Kiefer Sutherland scowl and grunt and straight up murder his way through an ocean of suspiciously accented baddies, stopping only to fall in love »

24: spin-off expected, with younger protagonist

2 June 2015 12:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've been told to expect a 24 spin-off, with a 'twenty-something' anti-hero as the lead, and possible Kiefer Sutherland cameos...

24: Live Another Day was a bigger hit with ratings than its critical response would suggest, so Fox seems determined to keep the brand alive. As such, the idea of a new season without Kiefer Sutherland has been floating around for a few months.

Now, TV Line have a little inside intelligence about the future of the 24 brand. They’ve told us to expect a spin-off show, with a different lead character. According to 24 executive producer Howard Gordon, this as-yet-unnamed spin-off show will focus on “a new twenty-something male terrorist hunter,” with the possibility for Kiefer Sutherland to ‘pop in and out as a guest star.’

It’s worth noting, though that ‘there are no current plans for Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack to appear,’ but ‘it’s entirely possible’ according to their report. »

‘Homeland’ Enlists Miranda Otto, More for Season Five

1 June 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Homeland” has recruited four new series regulars to join Claire Danes’ reckless CIA agent Carrie Mathisen on her missions.

The Showtime drama welcomes Miranda Otto, Sebastian Koch, Sarah Sokolovic and Alexander Fehling as series regulars in the upcoming Berlin-set fifth season.

Picking up two years after her ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief, the new season finds Carrie estranged from the CIA and working for a private security firm in Germany. But it sounds like Carrie can’t escape her past: Otto plays current Berlin Chief of Station Allison Carr, who is working directly under Carrie’s CIA mentor, Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).

Other casting details were equally vague. Koch plays Otto Düring, a German philanthropist with an eponymous foundation and Carrie’s boss. Sokolovic plays Laura Sutton, an American journalist who works with Carrie. Fehling plays Jonas Happich, legal counsel for the Düring Foundation and Carrie’s boyfriend.

Showtime also confirmed that Rupert Friend, »

24 Spinoff Will Feature a Young Male Agent and an Older Female One

1 June 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Just as there needed to be a new James Bond, 24 is on the hunt for a new, young thing. Showrunner Howard Gordon told TV Line that a spinoff of the franchise would star a new 20-something terrorist-hunter dude alongside an older, more seasoned female agent. It would take place in the same 24 universe, so Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) could still pop in and have a heart attack while snapping a guy's neck along with Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski). So, yes, the series will still be bound to the same constraints of having to deal with assassination plots in real-time. Get ready for the longest day of your life, new guy. »

Fox’s ’24’ Spinoff in Development to Focus on Younger Male Character

1 June 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Fox’s latest dip into the “24” pool would focus on a younger male agent, according to a new report. The potential series would feature guest appearances by Jack Bauer, but center on the new protagonist, who would work alongside an older, more seasoned female agent, TVLine wrote on Monday. The older agent would not be Yvonne Strahovski‘s Kate Morgan, although she also may appear, Howard Gordon told the publication. Manny Coto and Evan Katz will serve as writers and executive producers of the next installment.

Fox developing 24 spinoff with new twentysomething male lead

1 June 2015 12:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month, Fox Television CEO Gary Newman revealed that early development is underway on “another version” of 24, and now TV Line has revealed that the project will centre on a new male lead and will serve as a limited series, which could potentially become a long-term property.

24 producer Howard Gordon tells the site that the spinoff would follow a twentysomething antihero working alongside an older, more seasoned female agent – who won’t be Kate Morgan, played by Yvonne Strahovski in 24: Live Another Day. However, the door would be open for Strahovski to appear, while the play is for Keifer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer to appear as a guest star.

Are you excited about this 24 spinoff, or is it a mistake moving the focus away from Jack Bauer? Let us know in the comments below…

24 Spin-Off In Development

1 June 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It would appear that Jack Bauer is ready to clock out. 20th Century Fox Television is busy developing a spin-off for 24, and this one will focus on a younger hero instead of Kiefer Sutherland’s gruff, gun-slinging main man.TV Line tracked down co-creator Howard Gordon, who confirmed that the spotlight will be on someone new, but who keeps up the tradition of hunting terrorists and other criminals while reporting to an older, seasoned female operative. There’s no indication on what the new character’s trademark, network-appropriate swearword might be, but the phrase “Collywobbles!” is still available, so 24 veterans Manny Coto and Evan Katz, who are overseeing the new show, should take note. And don’t worry if you think this truly means the end of the line for Jack: the plan is apparently for him to pop up in the story from time to time, probably to torture someone while sweating. »

New 24 Spin-Off Being Developed By Fox, Series Would Focus On New Male Character

1 June 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It looks like time has not yet run out on 24, but Jack Bauer’s time as the series’ hero may be up. According to a report from TVLine, Fox is developing an all-new 24 spin-off that would not focus on Jack but a new male character instead. However, 24 executive producer Howard Gordon tells TVLine the plan would be for Kiefer Sutherland to guest star as Jack throughout these new episodes. Apparently, this 24 spin-off would center on a new male antihero, who works with an older, “more seasoned” female agent. This female agent would not be Yvonne Strahovski’s Kate Morgan but another new character (however, TVLine says that Strahovski could still appear in the new show). The 24 spin-off would debut as a limited series, just last year’s Live Another Day, but TVLine also reports that it could remain a more permanent fixture on Fox if it’s successful. Live Another… »
