We are still in TCAs mode and a lot happened over the weekend, let’s go over some of the highlights:
The biggest news to come out of the annual Summer Press tour is that CBS All Access will have another Star Trek series and it revolves around Jean-Luc Picard’s life after Star Trek: The Next Generation. The best part is that Sir. Patrick Stewart will be Jean-Luc Picard in the series!
The streaming channel also gave us our first look at Tell Me a Story:
This show, which takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller, is set in modern-day New York City. The first season of this serialized drama interweaves “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel” into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. The cast includes Billy Magnussen, Kim Cattrall, Danielle Campbell, Paul Wesley, James Wolk and Dania Ramirez. Tell Me A Story premieres October 31, exclusively on CBS All Access.
Will fans of Once Upon a Time follow Dania Ramirez (Cinderella) to this show?
For fans of WestWorld, especially those who loved Shogun World, FX is remaking Shogun, which is based on the novel by James Clavell. It will be 10 episodes long and no cast yet. If you cannot wait, you can look for mini-series that is about an English navigator that becomes both a player and pawn in the complex political games in feudal Japan. It starred Richard Chamberlain.
FX also announced that Jessica Lange is back for the upcoming season of American Horror Story. The show will air on the 12th of September and revolves around the Apocalypse.
The story, “begins with the end of the world, and then our world begins,” Executive Producer Alexis Martin Woodall stated.
We got a couple of hints about the upcoming season of The Walking Dead via the first episode of the new season of The Talking Dead.
The ninth season picks up a year-and-a-half after Season Eight ended. All the communities of Hilltop, the Kingdom, Oceanside, the Sanctuary, and Rick Grimes are working together to create some semblance of a working and cooperative society. However, we all know what happens…thanks to San Diego Comic-Con.
That’s it for now! Have a Happy Monday!
