Netflix Renews Narcos for Season 2
Netflix apparently enjoys being in business with Pablo Escobar. The streaming giant has renewed Narcos, its latest drama series, which focuses on the drug kingpin and the Medellin Cartel, for a second season. The Hollywood Reporter was the first to break the news. Narcos debuted its 10-episode first season last Friday, Aug. 28.

Agent Carter Season 2 Spoilers: Check Out Who the New Chief Is
While most of Agent Carter‘s main characters made it out of the ABC drama’s first season alive, there was one person who wasn’t so lucky: Ssr Chief Roger Dooley (played by Boardwalk Empire‘s Shea Whigham), who was last seen throwing himself out of a window in order to save his colleagues after no one could remove the overheating and soon-to-be-exploding vest that Dr. Ivchenko had strapped onto him. And while Dooley’s sacrifice was certainly emotional, and a great moment for a character who hadn’t had too many opportunities to shine throughout Season 1, it did leave one pressing question: Who would be the new chief moving forward in Season 2 of Agent Carter? Well, thanks to Marvel Entertainment’s official Twitter, which posted a photo from the set of Agent Carter Season 2, we now have our answer to that question, and while it might surprise some fans, »

Ratings: USA’s ‘Mr. Robot’ Steady in Finale, Ends As Cable’s No. 2 New Summer Drama
A softer lead-in and a week off seemed to impact same-night ratings for the finale of “Mr. Robot,” but the first new USA drama in years to have pop culture buzz still had a solid finish and ends summer among the top-rated new cable series in key advertising demos.
USA is expected to release additional ratings info next week when three-day DVR playback tallies are included, but Wednesday’s 74-minute finale of “Mr. Robot” averaged a 0.46 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.21 million viewers overall in Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates. It was the No. 1 scripted original on cable Wednesday in 18-49 and 25-54.
In 18-49, it matched its June 24 premiere and was a bit below both its prior episode of two weeks ago (0.49) and its season average (0.48).
The “Robot” finale had been delayed a week by USA because the episode includes a scene with similarities to the real-life murders that occurred Aug. »

‘Mr. Robot’ Ratings Steady In Season 1 Finale
Pushed for a week because of similarities to the on-air slaying of two journalists in Virginia, the USA Network cyberpunk series ended its first season last night with cliffhangers galore. With that unexpected break in mind, Mr. Robot wrapped up its 10-episode first run pretty much on par with its last original of two week beforehand.

Game of Thrones Parody Video Re-Imagines Joffrey as the Show’s Hero
There aren’t too many heroic characters remaining on Game of Thrones. Most of them have either been beheaded or stabbed by those they once trusted, and for the most part, only those who are ruthless and manipulative have found ways to survive in Westeros. Until his death at the beginning of Season 4, there was no one less heroic than Joffrey Baratheon (played by Jack Gleeson), who was the most detestable and savage villain Game of Thrones had ever produced (although, Ramsay Bolton gives him a run for his money. But what if Joffrey hadn’t been such an evil and maniacal brat? What if, like in most fantasy stories, he was the young king, thrust into power too early, trying his very best to rule the kingdom justly and righteously? That’s the question this newest Game of Thrones parody video ponders, as it edits different clips from the »

"Your Prayers Have Been Answered" - 'Black Jesus' Has Been Resurrected ... Again
The "Black Jesus" Facebook page published the above photo about half-an-hour ago, with the caption "Your prayers have been answered," suggesting the obvious. A year ago, Adult Swim did order a second season of its then new Aaron McGruder series, "Black Jesus," but given how long it's been since that announcement, many fans apparently wondered if it was indeed returning for a second season. And it looks like it will be, so you can rest easy now. In season 1 (and I assume also in the upcoming season 2) McGruder's live-action "Jesus" finds the son of God living in present day Compton, CA, on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood, with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers. Newcomer Gerald "Slink" Johnson stars as "Black Jesus." Charlie Murphy, Corey Holcomb, John Witherspoon, Kali Hawk, Andra Fuller, Antwon Tanner, Andrew Bachelor, Angela Gibbs, and Valenzia. »

Take a Trip Down Memory Lane in First Teaser for VH1’s Next Original Movie - 'The Breaks'
I'm not in VH1's general target audience, and so there's really very little I've ever watched on the network over the years; but this is one that I'll definitely be checking out when the time comes, if only because of the man calling the shots on this one - Seith Mann (who you might recall was on my short list of directors that Marvel should talk to about its upcoming Black Panther movie). VH1’s next original movie “The Breaks” will chronicle the journey of Nikki, David and DeeVee, 3 friends united by their love of hip-hop, as they work to make their big mark in the music industry. The film will take viewers back to the summer of 1990, in New York City (I was still in high school at the time and was a major hip-hop head then), where the music industry’s artists and hustlers intersect in the »

Netflix Renews 'Narcos' For Season 2
While critics have mostly been kind to Netflix's "Narcos," our own Erik McClanahan was far less enthused in the series. In particular, he had issues with the Pov of the narrative, which tells the story of Pablo Escobar through the eyes of a DEA agent, and it wasn't helped by the atrocious voiceover given to that character (in fact, it's so bad, I couldn't bring myself watch any more after the first episode). But Netflix has the faith, because they've ordered up more. THR reports that "Narcos" has been renewed for season two. The creative team will get a slight switcheroo with Adam Fierro ("The Shield") stepping in as showrunner for Chris Brancato ("Hannibal"), and the writers room is being put together for the next wave of episodes.

Watch: Daniel Radcliffe in 'The Gamechangers' — The Movie 'Grand Theft Auto' Doesn't Want You to See
"Grand Theft Auto" changed the gaming world forever. With its open world concept and overt violence, the historic franchise is more than deserving of a feature film, and BBC Two is ready to bring it to you. Well, to U.K. audiences, at least. No U.S. release has been set for the above TV movie, in part because the biopic is completely unauthorized. Rockstar Games, the company responsible for "Grand Theft Auto," sued the BBC to try to stop production of "The Gamechangers" due to copyright infringement. Though unsuccessful, the film could face similar roadblocks if it tries to make its way across the pond, given the sensitive subject matter within.
