The Jennings family may be in more trouble than ever, judging by the new teaser for Season 4 of “The Americans.” The Keri Russell-Matthew Rhys spy thriller follows the two as two Russian Kgb agents acting as married suburban couple Elizabeth and Philip Jennings in Washington, D.C. At the end of Season 3, one of their children, Paige (Holly Taylor), has finally learned the truth — and then promptly blabbed about it. Needless to say, much of the teaser for Season 4 centers on Paige’s next moves, as she’s pressured to tell authorities what exactly she knows about her parents’ true. »

One week ago today, Fox debuted its highly-anticipated The X-Files with the first episode in this six-episode event series, before it settled into its new time slot on Monday nights at 8 Pm. Two of the new characters we haven't met quite yet are Robbie Amell's Agent Miller and Lauren Ambrose's Agent Einstein, who will debut in the fifth episode Babylon, airing on February 15. Today, Entertainment Weekly has the first photo of these new characters before they arrive on the hit show.
The Babylon episode centers on Mulder and Scully who attempt to communicate with the comatose bomber of an art gallery. The younger FBI agents push them to examine their own beliefs. We reported in November that an X-Files spinoff may be happening that focuses on Agent Miller and Agent Einstein, but that news was never confirmed by Fox. If these characters prove to be popular with fans when they debut next month, »
Sundance has always served as a springboard to launch the careers of under-the-radar actors — just ask Michael B. Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”), Carey Mulligan (“An Education”), Paul Dano (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and Ryan Gosling (“The Believer”) — and the 2016 edition of the festival was no exception. Variety’s critics Justin Chang, Guy Lodge and Geoff Berkshire and film reporters Ramin Setoodeh and Brent Lang weighed in on their favorite breakthrough performances at this year’s Sundance.
(1) Narges Rashidi, “Under the Shadow”
Babak Anvari’s wartime creeptacular has already drawn well-deserved comparisons to another Sundance-premiered horror hit, “The Babadook,” and along similar lines, Rashidi’s intense yet fine-grained work here deserves to be spoken of in the same lofty tones as Essie Davis’. As a fiercely intelligent, progressive-minded Iranian woman infuriated by the direction of her country since the Islamic Revolution, Rashidi plays her character like a musical instrument going slowly out of »

A promising and impressively self-assured debut for 23-year-old filmmaker Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, “As You Are” is crafted with the confidence and skill of a veteran, but also the youthful eye of someone not far removed from his protagonists. His sensitively wrought teen-angst drama has a timeless quality that makes its early-’90s setting feel simultaneously specific and universal. Far from an easy sell commercially, the pic deserves careful handling by a specialty distrib capable of connecting with younger auds bound to see themselves reflected in the characters.
While Hollywood happily caters to teens in order to cash in at the box office, members of that age group are rarely depicted on screen with the sort of dignity and respect Joris-Peyrafitte and his co-writer Madison Harrison afford them here. Focused on the friendship between two high-school boys and the female classmate who both unites and divides them, the well-observed drama is somewhat »

"The X-Files" is back with a six-episode miniseries. I posted a review of the first three episodes last week, and I have a few specific thoughts on the premiere coming up just as soon as I have to, in the year 2016, use a search engine to get to a website I've previously visited on this computer... Mainly, I'm curious what everybody thinks now that you've seen it, but hitting a few of the larger beats now that I don't have to worry about spoilers: * I know that Mulder wants to believe — as Scully reminded us in that horribly-written, catchphrase-laden scene on his porch — but there is making him a would-be believer and then there is making him someone willing to throw out all of his previous beliefs (and pretty much everything relevant from the original series' mythology) on the basis of a few conversations with Tad O'Malley and Sveta. It's »

Dana Katherine Scully, this is on you.
Before you arch that eyebrow, hear me out. The X-Files‘ revival gives this longtime X-‘Phile the same pleasant feeling inside that Mulder’s CPR gave your frozen, sludgy self in the first movie. I’m like Eugene Tooms with a fresh liver, Donnie Pfaster with a natural redhead, the chupacabra with plenty of cabra to chupa: Bottom line, I’m stoked.

The Americans’ Susan Misner and Entourage alumna Emmanuelle Chriqui are set to co-star opposite Jeffrey Donovan in the Hulu drama series Shut Eye. The show, from creator Les Bohem (Extant), TriStar Television and Mark Johnson's Gran Via Productions, takes a darkly comedic look at the underground world of Los Angeles storefront psychics and the organized crime syndicate that runs them. The story centers on around Charlie Haverford (Donovan), a disgruntled player in the… »
This year’s Writers Guild Awards’ television nominees include Inside Amy Schumer's Kim Caramele, Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields of The Americans, and Sam Esmail, whose show, Mr. Robot, became the breakout hit of 2015. The writers gathered at the New York Institute of Technology auditorium Wednesday night for an hour-plus conversation that covered how Keri Russell was cast in The Americans, and why Esmail’s decision to direct all ten episodes of Mr. Robot’s second season is keeping him up at night. Keri Russell was cast on a hunch. Discussion of casting strategies featured prominently throughout the panel, included this tidbit of how Keri Russell was hired to star as Elizabeth Jennings in The Americans. According to Weisberg: “I was in a room with John Landgraf, the president of [FX] and five other people, and a list of the 100 best-known television and some film actresses in Hollywood, who were »

It is, quite literally, getting closer by the week and although those lucky lot in the Us will be getting to see the return of Mulder and Scully first, the UK will be following very quickly with Channel 5 bringing The X-Files back to the British masses.
Chris Carter, David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi all return for a six-episode outing in which anything can happen in a mix up of stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening ep, our Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars including Joel McHale (Community), Robbie Amell (The Flash), Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Annabeth Gish (The Bridge), Annet Mahendru (The Americans), Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man. »

Now that a few days have passed since journalists and critics have decamped from Pasadena, Calif. for the annual two-week grind of Television Critics Association winter press tour, Variety‘s TV team has taken stock of the most noteworthy trends.
Sean Penn’s El Chapo interview grabbed headlines, as did his sitdown with Charlie Rose — along with any mention of Donald Trump, “Making A Murderer,” and unintended cast reunions. (No, the “Friends” cast is not getting back together.) But nothing occupied TCA as much as a report on Netflix’s ratings in a presentation by NBC research president Alan Wurtzel — which Netflix chief Ted Sarandos handily dismissed in his exec session as “remarkably inaccurate.”
And then, of course, there was all the usual chatter about “Peak TV,” which has now hit a high of 412 scripted series.
For those who didn’t make it to the Langham Hotel, here’s what »

Howard Gordon (Tyrant, Homeland), Graham Yost (The Americans, Justified) and John Eisendrath (The Blacklist) took the stage for a Natpe panel in Miami Beach to talk the television in the age of fragmented audiences and multiple viewing platforms. “The first show I ever did, which was a show on CBS 20-something years ago,” Eisendrath said, “the first episode got a 24 share, and to CBS it was a disappointment. It was called Wiou, and it lasted 18 episodes because a 24 share… »
"Do you miss it at all? The X-Files?" This question is posed to Gillian Anderson's Dana Scully midway through Sunday night's long-awaited return of the classic sci-fi series. (It premieres at 10, or whenever Fox's NFL postgame coverage finishes.) Scully endured a lot of pain and heartbreak through her association with the X-Files — an underdog FBI unit, consisting of only her and conspiracy theorist Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), tasked to investigate, and preferably debunk, cases that seem to have extraterrestrial or supernatural elements — but admits it was some of the most intense and challenging work she's ever done. Many of Dana Scully's fans have a similarly complex relationship with "The X-Files" as a TV show. At its mid-'90s best, it was eminently worthy of its phenomenon status: an addictive and daring series that would become the new template for modern TV science fiction. ("Lost" and other series that leaned »

As with my list of new series premiering over the same period, this is a highly subjective and not at all comprehensive rundown of what’s coming up for TV and “TV” (eg Netflix) over the next few months. That means no Fear The Walking Dead, no House of Cards, no Togetherness, no Agents of Shield, etc., because for one reason or another, they’re just not my bag.
Oh, and midseason premieres don’t count.
One of 2015’s undersung pleasures, the Sutton Foster vehicle overcame a theoretically heinous premise (40-year-old divorcee pretends to be 26 to work as an intern at a publishing house, complete with work bestie Hilary Duff) with ample servings of wit, charm, and some surprising literary humor (a recurring character seems to be a walking reference to Karl Ove Knausgård). The second season has stumbled out of the gate a little »

Will The Americans TV series be one of the lucky few, cancelled by its creative team, meaning fans will get closure? At the TCA winter press tour, Ep Joel Fields said he and creator Joe Weisberg think the story could wrap in another season or two.
