'Master Of None' Season 2 Will Arrive In 2017, Plus Watch First Teaser For 'Silicon Valley' Season 3

1 hour ago

Greeted with critical acclaim and love from audiences, Aziz Ansari's Netflix series "Master Of None" was a big hit. However, while many expected the streaming service to quickly announce a new season last fall, that didn't quite happen. In fact, things went a bit quiet around the show, but there's some good news. Read More: The 25 Best TV Shows Of 2015 Ansari announced on Twitter today that "Master Of None" season 2 will arrive in 2017. Those are the only details at the moment. Given how involved he is in the writing of the show, in addition to starring, I'd wager the length of time is needed just to get all the creative pieces in place. And that's fine by me. "Master Of None" turned out to be one of the most refreshing shows of last year. Much ink has been spilled about its diverse casting, and tackling of topics you won't »

2 hours ago

Watch out — dragons and spoilers lurk below. Actually, that's only half-true. None of the 20 photos featured below actually showcase the legendary beasts that make "Game of Thrones" so distinctive and instead spotlight the large ensemble cast that's the show's real source of drama and terror.  Read More: Into 'The Expanse': How 'Game of Thrones' Guided The Making of '"Chinatown" in Space' While there's no sign of Jon Snow, nearly all of your other living favorites can be seen wearing various degrees of dirt and hinting at key changes to their characters — like Cersei's haircut and Arya's eye issues.  The biggest spoiler of all: Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) grew the hell up. (Though for those tempted to analyze why he might be standing in this shot, HBO notes that this scene is "from a vision sequence.") Season 6 of "Game of Thrones" premieres April 22 on HBO.

6 hours ago

Read More: Andrew Dice Clay Reinvents Himself as Himself in 'Dice' Poster If you were club-jumping in the '80s, then there's no need to explain who Andrew Dice Clay is, was or who he's become today.

Watch: Will Arnett Soul Searches Through Sobriety In Trailer for Netflix Original 'Flaked'

6 hours ago

Read More: Netflix Corrals Will Arnett For New Comedy Series 'Flaked' Will Arnett surprises fans by trading in that notorious segway for a bike, and Balboa Island for Venice beach. But those changes aren't by chances — he's taking a stab at a new dramatic role in Netflix's newest original series, "Flaked." The upcoming dramedy tells the story of Chip (Arnett), a conceited former alcoholic who's pining for the same woman as his own best friend. Keeping track of what is a fib, the truth and a flat-out lie is precarious for a man who's life was arguably easier with booze. Will Arnett and Mark Chappell ("The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret") penned the new series that will be sure to include a few laughs thanks to executive producer Mitch Hurwitz.  Watch the trailer for Arnett's rendition of a phoenix from the ashes tale above. "Flaked" Season 1 premieres all its episodes Friday, »

Watch: Will Arnett Untangles His Past In Trailer For Netflix Series 'Flaked'

6 hours ago

Post the original run of "Arrested Development," Will Arnett hasn't quite found his footing with live action fare. He was great in the short-lived NBC sitcom "Up All Night," and his voicework has landed him plum gigs in "Bojack Horseman" and "The Lego Movie," with his own "The Lego Batman Movie" in the works. But now he'll get to show a bit of range in the upcoming Netflix series "Flaked," which looks like it could be nice, minor key effort.

9 Questions For The Women of 'Billions' About Sex, Power, Money and Not Being Just 'The Wife'

7 hours ago

Women in Hollywood might be doing better these days when it comes to improving their level of representation on screen, but it's still not easy to make sure that when they get a chance at a role on a high-profile drama, it's one that really gives them agency and authority.

At the TCA Winter Press Tour in January, the duo took our questions about what it's like to create a marriage with someone who's technically a stranger, how "Billions" differs from other shows and how exactly they fit into the tale of an extremely rich hedge fund king Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) and the U. »

Can Nikki Glaser Make Sexpert Comedy a Thing?

7 hours ago

Back in the ‘90s, "sex-positive" was a really big deal. Anka Radakovich held court over at Details magazine with her pioneering sexpert column; vibrators like "The Rabbit" made it into the popular vernacular via shows like "Sex and the City"; and stores that sold them, like Toys in Babeland and Good Vibrations, took adult toystores out of the creep zone and made them female-friendly. HBO's "Real Sex" documented various sexual subcultures in a non-judgy way. I found myself thinking fondly back to this era as I watched the first episode of "Not Safe with Nikki Glaser" on Comedy Central, which debuted on Tuesday. The 31-year-old comic is a contemporary and close friend of Amy Schumer, and has been similarly dubbed a "sex comic" because of her willingness to talk about her own relationships -- and anatomy -- onstage. Though she's pushed back against that label, echoing Schumer's dismissive remark that "I get labeled a sex. »

Joe Wright To Direct Episode Of Netflix's 'Black Mirror' Starring Bryce Dallas Howard & Alice Eve

10 hours ago

While critics dumped on "Pan," and audiences stayed away in droves, I'm going to make a prediction that give it a few years, and Joe Wright's blockbuster flop will become "rediscovered" as a cult movie. I actually thought the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" moment was kinda ballsy, and there were quite a few nifty setpieces in the picture. It's not a good movie, but there's some decent stuff in there, and give it time and distance, and I won't be surprised if opinions soften a bit. All this to say, Wright does have some penance to make, and he'll be doing it over at Netflix. Read More: The Essentials: Five Amazing Joe Wright Scenes You Need To Know Deadline reports that he will direct an episode of "Black Mirror," with Bryce Dallas Howard and Alice Eve slated to star.

Watch: 'House of Cards' Season 4 Trailer Looks Toward the Future

17 hours ago

Read More: Before 'House of Cards' Season 4, We Need to Talk About Doug The big finale of "House of Cards" Season 3 centered on the fractured relationship of the First Family, and the new trailer for the upcoming season wastes no time digging into the emotional complexity at hand. Clearly, Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) are still struggling to reconnect, which comes as no surprise when considering how strong-willed they both remain. Yet the Underwoods aren't the only characters on display in this 60-second spot. Kim Dickens returns as stalwart reporter Kate Baldwin, as does Russian President Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen) and Frank's right-hand man, Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly). Also highlighted are freshly added cast members Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing") and Neve Campbell ("Scream"), but what matters is that the short spot is packed with tantalizing clips. Netflix recently announced that this season will be the final one for creator and. »

Watch: Futures Get Destroyed In The Venomous New Trailer For ‘House Of Cards’ Season 4

22 hours ago

"Without me, you are nothing.” Is showrunner and creator Beau Willimon going out with a bang on his last season of “House Of Cards”? The American political drama on Netflix just got renewed for season five, but in the announcement was the additional news that Willimon was departing to try new creative endeavors. And so (*spoilers ahead*), as Willimon and his staff roll into season four, it appears the animosities of last season are all the more bilious.  There were mixed reactions to “House Of Cards” season three, but frankly, they were unwarranted. Three jumped back on form from season two which nearly jumped the shark with suspension-of-disbelief strains of credulity. At the end of season three, the Underwood foundation of the show Potus Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and first lady Claire (Robin Wright) had buckled under the weight of the election and years of marital betrayals and hostilities.
