Finally, the full trailer for Season 2 is here and it looks pretty good. Starting June 9th on HBO and now with Meryl Streep as Nicole Kidman’s mother-in-law, the women of Monterey begin to break under the weight of their murderous secret.
This should inspire some curiosity at the very least (especially from fans who were bummed out by Zack Snyder’s 2009 movie) but I swore I’d never watch another Damon Lindelof show again after Lost, and I intend to stick to that vow. No matter how good this cast is.
I hated the second season of Legion so much I almost quit, but hearing that Season 3 will be its last, I suppose that motivates me to finish it. Might as well, right? Maybe it’ll have a good final run, regain its entertaining yet coherent (enough) weirdness from the first season. It comes back Monday, June 24th.
One of the best new shows of last year is back in August with a new season. I had some issues with its first season, but mostly nitpick-y things. It was pretty enjoyable overall and it even improved in my memory over time, actually. Looking forward to it coming back.
Yay! I’m all here for the new season of one of my favorite shows ever, but I wish this was a longer trailer. Apparently all the episodes are dropping at once on Hulu on Friday, July 26th and they got everybody from the original cast back (or just about everybody- you still can’t see most of them in this teaser yet).
The latest original show from DC’s streaming service is Swamp Thing, premiering May 31st. This trailer makes it look like a straight horror series, hyping up James Wan’s name for credibility purposes in the genre. Hilariously though, the Swamp Thing himself doesn’t look all that different from the one in the Wes Craven 1982 B-movie with Adrienne Barbeau.
Ava Duvernay’s highly anticipated miniseries on the Central Park Five is expected to drop on Netflix May 31st. The trailer makes it seem every bit as compelling and tragic as the real life case, where Donald Trump infamously called for their execution by publishing a full page ad, an act which he has refused to apologize for to this very day, 17 years after the boys were completely exonerated and released from prison.
Some excellent choices for the eight entertainment winners for the prestigious Peabody award were announced today, to be handed out on May 23rd. Biggest kudos for choosing to honor The End of the F***ing World, my favorite show of 2018 by far. Nanette was fantastic too.

This is one of those shows I enjoyed but did not think needed a second season, so who knows how this will go. It was only one book, so is there going to be a new mystery or is it all about the women keeping their secret from Meryl Streep, who’s playing the late Perry’s (Alexander Skarsgaard) mother? Even star Nicole Kidman said she didn’t know how it would turn out and admitted the fact that they all like hanging out together doesn’t necessarily justify doing another season, lol. But it’s starting June 9th so I guess we’ll see!
Yay! As a longtime, original member of the Veronica Mars fandom, I’m all in for the new eight episode revival season being launched by Hulu. And now we have a premiere date! July 26th, everyone- a summer run. Mark your calendars. The (no longer teen) detective is back.
