There is a lot of exciting news for TV Fanatics today!
There is a new trailer for an upcoming Netflix series, a teaser for AHS: 1984, Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 news, a renewal, and a premiere date!
Read on for all of the excitement.
Survival is a game in which each choice determined your next challenge.
That's what a group of strangers stranded on an island paradise soon discover.
And if you do something wrong, the island pays you back.
It seems like an island version of a very good if gone too soon show that aired on NBC about ten years ago called Persons Unknown. That was a glued-to-your-seat watch, and if The I-Land even comes close, we should be in for a treat.
The cast of The I-Land, including Kate Bosworth, Natalie Martinez, Alex Pettyfer, Ronald Peet, and Kyle Schmid, is well worth the investment.
We think The I-Land looks incredible. How about you?
The I-Land premieres on Netflix on September 22.
In a recent interview on The Hollywood Reporter with Grey's Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff, she revealed some of the topics the show will tackle for Grey's Anatomy Season 16.
Some of the hottest topics going into the upcoming election year are immigration and medical care, and Vernoff has plans to address both.
And if you're worried about what happened to Jackson in the fog during the Grey's Anatomy Season 15 finale, you'll have answers early into the season.
Things pick up immediately after the finale and, "What happened to Jackson in the fog is answered almost immediately in the premiere," said Vernoff.
"Everything has high stakes and high consequences, and yet we are keeping alive the sense of humor, the sense of fun, the sense of joy that we've been doing the last couple of years.
Conversations about the "broken" medical system in the United States will come into play as a direct result of Meredith's (Ellen Pompeo) firing for insurance fraud and DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) taking the fall for her.
Vernoff also discussed the theme for Station 19 as she will be serving double duty as showrunner for both shows this coming season.
"One of the themes we're working with at Station 19 is what makes a hero. We are working with a little bit of an occasional flashback motif where we take a look at what made these people want to run into fire for a living," Vernoff shared with THR.
Grey's Anatomy returns to ABC on September 26. Station 19 is slated for a midseason return.
Queen of the South has been renewed! TV Fanatics can rest easy knowing their favorite drug lord will be back in business.
While there isn't a clear drop date, if it follows the last four seasons, new episodes should begin in Summer 2020.
We're already stoked about American Horror Story: 1984 with all the flashback to vintage slasher pics that it implies.
The latest teaser features a slasher movie classic trope -- the person hiding under the bed while the killer moves about the room.
It's a super simple teaser, but incredibly effective.
American Horror Story Season 9 premieres on FX Wednesday, September 18.
We have Outlander news!!
It might not make you happy, though.
Outlander Season 5 will premiere on Sunday, February 16, 2020.
That's a little bit later than we're used to seasons of Outlander starting, but it is a nice late Valentine's Day gift to look forward to, right?
Your weekend can start with a romantic dinner for two, and you can round it out by snuggling together watching some fiery scenes between Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Heughan).
For those of you attending New York Comic-Con next month, they've set a panel for Saturday at 5:30 pm.
It will be held in The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
Balfe and Heughan will be joined by Comic-Con first-timers Duncan LaCroix (Murtagh), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Jocasta) and David Berry (Lord John Grey).
Diana Gabaldon, author of the bestselling Outlander book series, plus Executive Producers Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis, will attend with Ginger Zee, chief meteorologist on “Good Morning America” (ABC), moderating the panel.
In addition to the “Outlander” panel, the cast will do an autographing session exclusively for NYCC Fans, and information on how to enter the lottery can be found on their social media pages in the coming weeks.
And God help me, but I almost failed to share the latest teaser for The Young Pope.
I'll just drop this here...
Yes, that's Pope Pius XIII aka Lenny Baldardo aka Jude Law strutting his stuff in a banana hammock.
If you haven't watched The Young Pope Season 1, you need to get on board. For heaven's sake -- that's John Malkovich!
There is very little known about what's to come in the new season, but it's nice to see Lenny strolling the beach since his very life was in jeopardy at the end of Season 1.
Signs pointed to it being a vision from God. We'll find out soon enough!
We have no doubt the new season will be as outrageous as the first. The Young Pope returns to HBO in 2020.
