With the big screen version of “Star Trek” seemingly on hold (they announced “Star Trek 4” last summer, but there has been no word since), fans of the series have something to look forward to with “Star Trek: Discovery.” It’s the return of the franchise to the small screen, and hopes are high that will get back the roots of what made the property so beloved in the first place.

Ever since Netflix’s “Stranger Things” came out of nowhere a year ago to become a pop-culture sensation unlike any other of recent memory, an air of mystery has surrounded its upcoming sophomore season. With a release date of Halloween 2017, a chilling Super Bowl teaser, and cast members referring to season 2 as “a lot more dark [than season 1], a lot more horror-oriented,” you can rest assured that the ‘80s throwback series is indeed upping the ante in its impending return.

I will admit, ashamed as I am, to not yet having finished watching the first season of FX’s “Legion.” While the series pilot was truly one of the best episodes of television to air this year, subsequent episodes disappointed in their stricter adherence to traditional superhero show conventions. I bailed on the show fairly early. I’ve been assured that in later episodes the show returns to the experimental short-film aesthetic of the pilot, and have been planning  to catch myself up on the series at some point down the line.

While I’ve never seen a single episode of “Game Of Thrones,” I’ve seen all of “Riverdale” so far. That’s right, the dark Archie Comics adaptation is my jam, and the title town is my Westeros, which means I can’t wait for the second season. I’d definitely wager that some of our readers are (secret) fans of the show too. Spoilers ahead if you’re still catching up, but at the end of first season, Archie’s dad, played by a weathered Luke Perry, was left with a bullet in the gut.

So, this year “Game of Thrones” started airing prior to San Diego Comic Con, which made Friday’s big GoT panel a less-than-streamlined event. And while there wasn’t a hotly anticipated season trailer to reveal, HBO did release a “weeks ahead” Comic-Con trailer which has some tantalizing morsels of Westeros action for us Throneheads to pore over while we wait impatiently for the next episode of the show to air literally in two days.

They’re the Avengers of the Netflix Marvel world. Where the regular Avengers save the world from otherworldly threats, the Defenders save a small part of New York City from ninjas, normally by fighting them in tight hallways. With the release date fast approaching, Marvel and Netflix have released the second trailer for “The Defenders,” and it looks like all that waiting by the fans is going to pay off.

Preacher” may not have much to do with its originators much anymore — “from the guys that brought you ‘This Is The End‘ and ‘Sausage Party‘ and the co-executive producer of “Breaking Bad“– but the show is still touting their names. Perhaps it’s because “Preacher” is a modest show for AMC and not a big player in their portfolio. Continue reading New ‘Preacher’ Season 2 Trailer: “I’m Here To Kill A Man” at The Playlist.

We’re now headed into the eighth season of “The Walking Dead,” and I’ll be honest, I have no idea what this show is about other than zombies. I’ve never seen an episode. What I do know is that some friends have bailed on the series, while others are are stoically hanging on to the show. It remains a ratings blockbuster for AMC, and it’s preparing fans for the new season with an epic five-minute trailer. Continue reading Epic 5-Minute Trailer For ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 8 at The Playlist.

HBO is no stranger to controversy, but it’s not often that a press release for a show that hasn’t even been written, sparks the kind of outrage “Confederate” generated. The new series from “Game Of Thrones” duo David Benioff and D.B. Weiss takes place in an alternate timeline, in which the southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution.
