Words can not begin to express how excited I was when The X-Files was confirmed to be returning for the first time since 2007, and on TV since 2002. It has been the piece of entertainment closest to my heart since I was a child. I have watched it countless times. I even do a podcast in which I’m talking all 200+ episodes over what will probably end up taking several years. There is no TV show I venerate, or will ever venerate more. Season 10 therefore was manna from heaven; almost a decade after convincing myself we’d never see a conclusion to Fox Mulder & Dana Scully’s story, having to make do with non-canon (if enjoyable) comics or even, in many case, writing my own fan fiction scripted conclusion (I’ll stop with the self promotion now, promise!), we at last had what »

Next year, the pulse-pounding action of 24 returns to the Fox airwaves, with a whole new cast of characters when 24: Legacy debuts. Kiefer Sutherland will return to serve as an executive producer on the series, and while he will not be starring in the show, the actor himself teased that he may return at some point as Jack Bauer. We may not know for quite some time whether or not he is coming back. But today, Fox debuted the first trailer and photo for 24: Legacy, which introduces a new hero, U.S. Army Ranger Sergeant Eric Carter (Corey Antonio Hawkins). 24: Legacy will debut with a special two-night event on Sunday, February 5, following Super Bowl Li, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, February 6.
Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.
Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, “Lethal Weapon” follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. From the moment the brash and impulsive Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) meets prudent, by-the-book Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), it seems as if this partnership is doomed. But after their first case together, both realize this arrangement might just work out after all – if Riggs doesn’t get them killed first.
Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” terrified audiences around the world. »
