The network has also released the key art for the upcoming season along with a description:

The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. during the Reagan administration. The arranged marriage of Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but as the pressures and demands of the job grow heavier, the personal toll becomes almost too exhausting to bear. Having revealed their true identities to their teenage daughter Paige (Holly Taylor), Philip and Elizabeth must keep their daughter’s best interests at heart while ensuring that their cover identities, and thus their lives, remain protected. Their previous missions have already placed Philip and Elizabeth in great jeopardy. Martha (Alison Wright), a valued secretary at the FBI whom Philip married while undercover, has been an invaluable source of intel. However, when her cover is nearly blown, Philip must make increasingly difficult decisions to ensure her safety and allegiance. The Jennings’ neighbor, FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), could also prove to be a renewed threat. His KGB lover/asset Nina (Annet Mahendru), having failed to turn him against the U.S., was sent back to Moscow to face an unsure fate. With Nina gone, Stan has made an effort to become closer with his family and has formed a bond with the Jennings’ 12-year-old son, Henry (Keidrich Sellati). He has also cultivated his relationship with KGB officer Oleg Burov (Costa Gorn). Stan’s newfound dedication to wi[ong out Directorate S has also led him to become suspicious of Martha’s uncharacteristic behavior. As he begins to investigate what’s been in front of him all this time, he might finally get closer to uncovering the “Illegals” – Philip and Elizabeth – that have eluded him for so long. 

The premiere episode, “Glanders,” picks up on the heels of last season’s finale. Philip and Elizabeth are dealing with the fallout of all they’ve wrought. What will happen when the FBI finds out about Gene’s suicide? How will Pastor Tim deal with the revelation that they are Russian spies?

‘Colony’s’ Peter Jacobson Lays Down the Law as Proxy Snyder

COLONY -- Season:1 -- Pictured: Peter Jacobson as Proxy Alan Snyder -- (Photo by: Justin Stephens/USA Network)

Peter Jacobson stars in USA’s newest dystopian drama series Colony as Proxy Alan Snyder, the leader of the Transitional Authority in Los Angeles, and talked about the show and his character during the Television Critics Association winter session.

Instead of the usual story that strings us along from the very beginning with the Aliens invading and what happens next, Colony starts us off after that’s already happened. Now we’re dealing with the aftermath of how people are surviving the invasion and what they have to do to stay alive and keep their families together.

After being separated from their son during the invasion, Will and Katie are willing to do whatever is necessary to be reunited with him. Proxy Snyder (Peter Jacobson, House) offers Will a chance to get his son back if he will collaborate with the occupational government, Will and Katie find themselves faced with the toughest decision of their lives.  They will have to go beyond whatever they thought possible, risking their lives and their relationship to protect their family.

When you sign on to a Carlton Cuse show, you just know there are going to be twists and turns at every corner and might not know much about your character or the story until he wants you to.

Jacobson says that “it’s always amazing with Carlton on who dies, who lives, who’s this new character. It’s like peeling an onion every week. It’s always new.”

Do you like that the show starts off after the invasion?

“If you’re going to have a show about relationships, character, and humanity it doesn’t need to be about the initial attack. And that’s the point. It’s there and we know it, but it’s really about what’s happening underneath and that’s what’s beautiful about it. So, I hope that vibe comes through and people lock onto that. There’s got to be a certain amount of bells and whistles to sell a pilot. It’s a tricky thing of any pilot and first season. You have to show something and sell it so people come back. At the same time, you want to stay true to the art of it which is to be as subtle as you can, and roll it out as slowly as you can. So there are two competing forces there.”

Collaborators are people that were chosen by the Hosts, like Proxy Snyder, or Will, doing what he has to do to survive and keep his family alive. But mostly as a way to get his son back.

Is he good? Is he bad? What do we really know about Proxy Alan Snyder?

“My character right away is obviously a collaborator extraordinaire,” says Jacobson. “And by episode four or five you get a much great sense of what’s going on with Snyder – where he’s been and why he is where he is. So I think it takes a little more time to see why people are doing what they’re doing as opposed to the resistance with so much violence and death it’s clear what people are fighting against. Will’s [Holloway] dilemma in the pilot is it’s very clear what the forces are that brings somebody like him to a collaborate. His family has been separated. it becomes clear that Katie [Callies] position within the resistance has a negative impact on the family and can be incredibly dangerous. Will’s collaboration becomes dangerous as well which builds tension between the two.”

What do we know about the Hosts? Will we find out more about them and who they are?

“That’s probably the slowest rollout of the whole season. Who are these things, these people, these whatever they are and why are they here and who’s in charge and how did the humans under them become in charge?”

Is your character the top guy? Who’s really in charge?

“There will be times in a scene where we [Baker] would get onto set together and we start asking, ‘Am I above you? Who’s in charge?’ That kind of ambiguity and uncertainty is what helps keep the show interesting.

When do we find out more about Snyder? What’s his story? How did he become a collaborator? 

“We do meet some of my family later on and you get that this person has a heart and he’s doing what he’s doing, with purpose. He’s been through some separation himself, but don’t trust everything Snyder says as even ‘I don’t know how much I’m lying.'”

Character Bio:

Proxy Snyder is the pragmatic and charismatic leader of the Transitional Authority in Los Angeles. After the Arrival, he proves that he is a true politician and leads all aspects of the Occupation. Armed with the Redhat army and ever-present drones, Proxy’s Transitional Authority is tasked with keeping order and stability in Los Angeles.

Proxy knows that his Occupation movement needs someone as strong and valuable as Will Bowman to fight alongside them in order to combat the growing threat from the Resistance. Ever the cunning politician, Proxy also knows exactly how to make people do what he wants.

Colony airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA.

claire-fraser-caitriona-balfe-jamie-fraser-sam-heughanoutlander-s2jpg-0d708c_765w

“This season changes everything for Claire and Jamie”

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling empty inside without some Outlander in my life. I’VE BEEN IN DROUGHTLANDER!!!! Last we saw Jamie and Claire, they found out they were pregnant and about to board a ship to France to see about changing the future…well, Jamie’s future and Claire’s knowledge of the past.

At the Television Critics Association winter session, Starz gave the fans a bit of a teaser for what’s to come in season 2 of Outlander. 

1. Bienvenue en France
The teaser showed Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) in France because that’s where Prince Charles Stuart is along with the rest of the Jacobites. They attend galas and dinners at the King’s palace in order to infiltrate the Jacobite movement in hopes of stopping the battle of Culloden.

2.  New Characters
Caitriona and Sam are excited for us to see the new cast members that are joining their little show. “We hRichard Rankin_Roger Wakefieldave some fantastic new characters coming in. There are new enemies, new allies,” added Heughan. Scottish actor Richard Rankin has been cast to play the fan favorite role of Roger Wakefield in season two. Roger is described as “intelligent, kindhearted, and charming, Roger is the grown up version of Reverend Wakefield’s adorable adopted son we met in Season One.  After his parents died in World War II, Roger was raised by the Reverend (with help from his housekeeper, Mrs. Graham) and is a proud Scot through and through. Now a professor at Oxford, Roger has a keen interest in history, and all the secrets and insight it presents.”

3.  Diana Gabaldon on her writing
Dayum! A reporter tried to get Diana Gabaldon to throw some serious shade today, referencing George R.R. Martin’s inability to finish the book in time for Game of Thrones.“Unlike George, I write no matter where I am or whatever I’m doing.” Gabaldon added, “I don’t plan books out ahead of time or write in a straight line. I knew there was more to Outlander after the first book.” She says it’s been a very collaborative process and has even written one of the episodes in the upcoming season.

4.   Premiere Date
While we still don’t have an exact date, we do know that the second season of Outlander will premiere in April 2016 on Starz.

5.  The costumes 
Terry Dresbach did a phenomenal job on the upcoming season. Check out some of the gorgeous pieces Caitriona and Sam get to wear in season two.

At the Television Critics Association summer session, FX announced the return dates for Fargo and American Horror Story: Hotel as well as the premiere date and show description for Kurt Sutter’s highly anticipated new series The Bastard Executioner.

Per the press release, FX describes The Bastard Executioner as “FX describes “a blood-soaked, medieval epic that tells the story of Wilkin Brattle (Lee Jones), a 14th century warrior, whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches him to lay down his sword and lead the life of another man: a journeyman executioner. Set in northern Wales during a time rife with rebellion and political upheaval, Wilkin must walk a tight rope between protecting his true identity while also serving a mysterious destiny. Guided by Annora (Katey Sagal), a mystical healer whose seeming omniscience keeps Wilkin under her sway; manipulated by Milus Corbett (Stephen Moyer), a devious Chamberlain with grand political aspirations; and driven by a deepening connection with the Baroness Lady Love Ventris (Flora Spencer-Longhurst), Wilkin struggles to navigate political, emotional and supernal pitfalls in his quest to understand his greater purpose.”

The 10-episode first season of The Bastard Executioner debuts with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

The 13-episode season of American Horror Story: Hotel opens its doors on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

And finally, the all new “true crime” case of Fargo’s new chapter travels back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota.  “Lou Solverson” (Patrick Wilson), a young State Trooper recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang, a major Mob syndicate and a small town beautician “Peggy Blumquist” (Kirsten Dunst) and her husband “Ed” (Jesse Plemons), the local butcher’s assistant.  Helping Lou piece things together is his father-in-law, “Sheriff Hank Larsson” (Ted Danson). The investigation will lead them to a colorful cast of characters that includes “Karl Weathers” (Nick Offerman), the town lawyer of Luverne, Minnesota.  A Korean War vet, Karl is a flowery drunk blessed with the gift of gab and the eloquence of a true con artist.  Three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett will play “Joe Bulo,” the front man for the northern expansion of a Kansas City crime syndicate.  The new face of corporate crime, Joe’s bringing a Walmart mentality to small town America.  His number two is “Mike Milligan” (Bokeem Woodbine).  Part enforcer, part detective, Mike is always smiling – but the joke is usually on you.  Bulo and his crew have their sights set on the Gerhardt crime family in Fargo, currently led by matriarch “Floyd Gerhardt” (Jean Smart).  With her husband at death’s door, Floyd takes over the family business, frustrating her eldest son, “Dodd Gerhardt” (Jeffrey Donovan).  An impatient hothead with a cruel streak to match his ambitions, Dodd can’t wait for both his parents to die so he can take over and expand their business from kingdom to empire. “Bear Gerhardt” (Angus Sampson) is the middle son, an intimidatingly large man who, although inarticulate, is the most decent of his clan. “Rye Gerhardt” (Kieran Culkin), the youngest of the Gerhardt family, views himself as a big shot, but in reality he’s just a small dog who barks big.

The 10-episode second season of Fargo premieres Monday, Oct. 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

AMC, along with Channel 4 and Kudos, have renewed its newest sci-fi series Humans for a second season, 8-episode pickup with production starting next year.

Penned by British writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (SpooksSpooks: The Greater Good) and based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama Real Humans from Matador Films, the series’ first season tapped into society’s preoccupation with and mistrust of advancing technology and artificial intelligence. What does it mean to be human? Can the very traits through which we define humanity (love, trust, loyalty, friendship, sacrifice) be taught? What really is family?  Exploring humans’ inherent fear of the unknown and the possible implications of granting machines consciousness, the final episodes will leave viewers on a thrilling cliff-hanger.

The first season averaged 2.0 million viewers and 1.0 million adults 25-54 through its first four episodes in live+3 ratings and the first episode was Channel 4’s highest rated originated drama in 20 years.

“We’re so pleased to announce a second season of Humans and extend our terrific partnership with Channel 4, Kudos and the stellar cast, crew and writers Sam and Jonathan,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and Sundance TV. “As one of the year’s top new cable series, Humans has been embraced by fans and critics across the U.S. and UK. We’re looking forward to continuing this very captivating story and further exploring the show’s parallel, Synth-filled world that hits so disturbingly close to home.”

Humans airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.

 

Starz Wants You to Binge-Watch the Entire Season of ‘Flesh and Bone’ and ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’

Flesh and Bone

Starz has decided to jump on the binge-watching bandwagon!

Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht announced today at the Television Critics Association summer session that all episodes of the third and final season of Da Vinci’s Demons and the highly anticipated limited series Flesh and Bone will be available exclusive for Starz subscribers on STARZ PLAY and STARZ ON DEMAND when they premiere on October 24 and November 8 respectively.

“Starz has had a fantastic year with original programming in 2015 and we are rewarding our Starz subscribers with two special opportunities to immerse themselves into quality series and enjoy them on their own schedules,” said Albrecht.

Da Vinci’s Demons 10-episode third season is helmed by creator and executive producer David S,. Goyer and all eight episodes of Flesh and Bone come from Emmy award-winning Breaking Bad writer and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett.

“The great and passionate followers of Da Vinci’s Demons have been waiting since the spring of last year for new episodes while the  gritty world of ballet as depicted in the Flesh and Bone limited series is must-see television for fans of the genre and great television alike,” said David Baldwin, Starz Executive Vice President of Program Planning. “Both series are engaging and well-suited for a binge viewing experiment. In the busy fall television season, we thought this was a terrific benefit for Starz subscribers who want to get a jump and enjoy the complete series on their own time and schedule, with the first two seasons of Da Vinci’s Demons already available on STARZ PLAY and STARZ ON DEMAND.”

When asked if other programs would become available for binge-watching, like say, Outlander, Albrecht immediately squashed that idea saying, “if we waited for all the episodes to be done, we would have to delay the debut of the first episode quite significantly.”

Sorry, Outlander fans, your dreams of curling up on the couch and watching an entirely new season of Sam Heughan in a kilt have been killed.

In the meantime, check out the trailers for the Da Vinci’s Demons and Flesh and Bones below.
