Westworld ambitiously sought to weave its first season across multiple timelines as an in-depth examination of robot consciousness, understandably leaving little room to answer every mundane question about the park. That said, producers promise Season 2 will show a bit more of the guests’ perspective, perhaps finally answering our burning questions.
The specter of TV revivals has never loomed larger in the wake of Netflix reunions like Fuller House or Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, but if Bayside ever gets back together for more Saved by The Bell, the reunion may not be a happy one. Producer Peter Engel reveals some surprisingly unhappy endings for the original six, as well the actual potential to return.
The concept behind Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle is a funny one. Not so much the “ha, look at how far-fetched a totalitarian America feels,” but a deeper sci-fi premise than an alternate outcome to World War 2. Now, that idea is blossoming in Season 2, as a new clip introduces Stephen Root as the titular mysterious man.
Game of Thrones has long had its own line of beers for fans to celebrate with, and it seems crazier than a Mad King to be without an official wine. No longer, as a Santa Rosa winery will bring us three different varieties for every generation of Lannister to poison themselves with, some more quickly than others.
Black Mirror had hits and misses in its double-size transition to Netflix for Season 3, but few stood out so much as the ‘80s-tinged, and oddly-optimistic “San Junipero.” Black Mirror isn’t the type for direct sequels, however connected its stories might be, but the episode’s director weighs in on another potential visit to “San Junipero.”
The very first Drunk History in 2007 started with the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, leaving it uncertain if we’d ever see a retelling from the Hamilton master, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Thankfully, the day has arrived, as a drunk Miranda leads a new all-star retelling of Hamilton’s life with a clip from Monday’s Drunk History.
Game of Thrones isn’t the type to lend itself to wide conspiracies in the same manner as Westworld, but that hasn’t stopped more than a few persistent possibilities turning the rumor mill. Season 6 in particular saw one uncomfortable rumor dogging Sansa, one it seems Season 7 is putting to rest well-ahead of schedule.
The CW is certainly entering December with a bang, but 2017 is when the landscape really starts to shift. Not only do we know when to expect returning favorites like The 100 and iZombie, but also freshman offerings like Riverdale, and the final graduation of The Vampire Diaries.
