Can TV Shows Survive After Losing a Main Character?

16 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

Shocking an audience is a difficult thing to do these days, so constantly titillated are our imaginations. But with so many series reinventing the traditional format, losing a main character is often a surefire way to leave audiences with mouths agape. Most recently, The Good Wife saw leading character Will Gardner (Josh Charles) die, and Homeland lost one of its main driving forces, maybe-terrorist Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis). While these unexpected character deaths rattled audiences, it’s yet to be seen how their respective shows will carry on without them.

In anticipation of the return of fall TV, we’re taking a look back at iconic shows that lost a main character and soldiered on (for better or for worse). Whether an unexpected death, like Ned Stark on Game of Thrones, or an actor simply leaving a show before it was over, like Steve Carell leaving The Office, »

Exclusive ‘Homeland’ Season Three Clip: Out Now On Blu-Ray & DVD

11 September 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Whatever you thought about the finale of Homeland there’s one thing we can all agree on, it got people talking and I was a huge fan and think it braved story-lines and narratives that many others just haven’t got close to. To celebrate the release of the three-time Golden Globe winning TV series on Blu-ray and DVD this week from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, we’ve got an exclusive clip for you.

Homeland, one of the most thrilling TV dramas to date, follows CIA intelligence officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), her boss and mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin) and former American prisoner of war Nicolas Brody (Damien Lewis) in a gripping third season.

Season Two of Homeland ended explosively with Brody (Lewis) being framed by terrorist Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban) in connection to a bombing that left 200 dead, including the Secretary of Defence and the Secretary of Homeland Security. »

New on Blu-ray DVD September 9: 'Captain America,' 'Homeland,' 'Supernatural'

9 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier"

What's It About? Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America (Chris Evans) is still getting used to life in the 21st century, but before he gets too comfortable he's enlisted by S.H.I.E.L.D. to help stop another big bad. Captain American partners with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) for a lot of action and awesomeness in their mission to stop the Winter Soldier. Anthony Mackie co-stars as Falcon.

Why We're In: The "Avengers" series just keeps getting better and better. Plus, "Winter Soldier" gives us even more of Black Widow's bad-assery, proving once again that it's high time we get a stand-alone for this fantastic character.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"The Great Race"

What's It About? Blake Edwards directs Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Natalie Wood in this slapstick comedy about a globe-trotting car race. »

Mandy Patinkin at ‘Homeland’ Premiere: ‘Our Job Is to Be Poets’

5 September 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the premiere of “Homeland” approaches, conflict and terrorism in the Middle East once again dominate the headlines.

The horrors of beheadings of journalists and other acts by the militant Islamist org Isis are very much on the minds of the show’s writing staff, showrunner Alex Gansa said Thursday night during the show’s premiere screening at the Public Theater’s Library.

Gansa admitted that he’s not entirely sure how the show should handle the latest developments in the real-world drama of terrorism.

“What’s going on in the world right now is so terrifying,” Gansa told Variety. “After (journalist) James Foley was killed we all sat in the story room and just looked at each other. ‘Homeland’ occupies a unique place right now in television in that we have an opportunity to either comment or not comment about what’s happening in the world as we speak »

Exclusive: First Look At Wolf Hall

26 August 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Fasten thy ruff for we have a world first glimpse at Mark Rylance’s hero/protagonist Thomas Cromwell in the eagerly awaited adaptation of Wolf Hall. If the Booker-winning books are any indicator, Rylance’s pensive frown masks a world of concerns as his statesman attempts to survive the sharky waters of Henry VIII’s (Damian Lewis) court. Although the BBC series is called Wolf Hall, it actually combines Hilary Mantel’s novel with its sequel, Bring Up The Bodies, across six parts brimming with Tudor intrigue as Lewis’s chicken-chewing sovereign navigates the choppy waters of European power politics, the pressures of Rome and the lack of a good Nando’s in the Hampton Court area.“We assured Hilary we’d be true to her version of history,” producer Mark Pybus tells Empire. “And that means showing the dirt beneath the fingernails.”With £7 million sunk into recreating the 16th »

Check Out The Ominous New Trailer For Homeland Season 4

19 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This October, Showtime’s Homeland will be hitting the reset button. Gone is Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), the complex antihero at the heart of the show’s first three seasons. Don’t expect to see his wife Jessica (Morena Baccarin) or children either – and that’s not the only thing that’s changed this time around. Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is no longer in the U.S. – she’s been assigned to a dangerous CIA station in the Middle East, where she becomes involved in thwarting a terrorist plot.

Season 4 will also see Carrie interact with new characters, including Sandy Bachman (Corey Stoll), the CIA’s chief of station in Pakistan; and Martha Boyd (Laila Robins), the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan. It won’t be all unfamiliar faces, however – Carrie’s close allies Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin) and Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) are still in the mix.

The Fourth Season of Homeland has a New Trailer

18 August 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Alex Ganza and Howard Gordon’s Homeland was the show to watch when it made its debut a few years ago. Damian Lewis and Claire Danes made for a compelling lead couple with the slow burn of the mercurial agenda of Lewis’s Brody became clear.

The show has now cut very decidedly from that path, and potentially pushing itself into a new arena; less focused on one person, opening itself up to many threats. Talking to TV Guide Howard Gordon has said of the fourth season,

The story finds Carrie in an emotional space that is very much a continuation of last year’s story, and the spectre of Brody is still felt very strongly,

While Brody may not be around now there’s the added element of Danes’ character’s baby, motherhood a very unlikely path for her to walk in previous seasons. Thankfully Mandy Patinkin will still »
