HBO network president Michael Lombardo is a man of his word. When he canceled Looking after two short seasons, he cushioned the blow to fans by promising a wrap-up movie to tie up loose ends. The network just revealed when Jonathan Groff and company will return.

Looking: The Movie will air Saturday, July 23. Ahead of that, the film will premiere, fittingly enough, at the Frameline Film Festival, taking place in San Francisco from June 16-26, where it will close the festival. Read below to find out what we can expect.

For any actor, having a steady gig is reward enough. It’s especially great when the gig is a hit show beloved by millions. Apparently that wasn’t enough good fortune to befall Game of Thrones actress Carice von Houten.

After reading her interview with Entertainment Weekly, I’ve concluded she’s probably the luckiest girl on the HBO set. Who knew resurrecting someone from the dead could be so titillating. The 39-year-old reveals she washed Kit Harington’s practically naked body at least 50 times while filming last episode.

“It took forever to resurrect him, forever!” says van Houten. “It was such an important scene, we shot it from so many angles. I think I washed his body 50 times. There would be a lot of people who would be very jealous, including my mother and sister. I was joking about that with him – ‘if only my mother could see this’ – and he loved that.”

The first season of The Leftovers took place in the fictional town of Mapleton, New York three years after the “Departure.” For its sophomore run, the action moved to another fictional town named Jarden, Texas. Once again, producers are changing locations, but this time, they’re heading overseas.

Beyonce’s Lemonade Available On iTunes

After her highly-anticipated HBO special premiered, LEMONADE, immediately became available for streaming and sale exclusively on TIDAL. As much as I love Beyonce, I didn’t cave in and sign up for a free 30-day trial. Wise move on my part. Just 24 hours later, Bey’s 6th studio album appeared on iTunes and unlike her previous album initially, tracks were available to purchase individually. With regards to streaming though, it appears LEMONADE will stream “exclusively in perpetuity” over at TIDAL.

Did you watch LEMONADE on HBO this past weekend? I did and even had a few people over to catch it. While I enjoyed her ambitious feminist feature film with beautifully-shot images of Afro-American Southern imagery, voodoo visuals and futuristic moments, I was a little underwhelmed by the music. IMHO, there wasn’t a single track that screamed instant radio hit. With that being said “Hold Up, “”6 Inch” feature The Weeknd, “Daddy Lessons” and “Sorry” I instantly liked.

HBO Renews Game Of Thrones, Veep & Silicon Valley

A few days ahead of their respective season premieres, HBO announced its renewing Game of Thrones, Veep and Silicon Valley for another year. That means a seventh season for the fantasy drama and sixth and fourth for the Julia Louis-Dreyfus show and tech comedy respectively.

Noticeably absent from the announcement was exactly how many episodes Game of Thrones Season 7 will air. Just recently, show producers hinted at shortened seasons.

“I think we’re down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We’re heading into the final lap,” showrunner David Benioff told Variety. “That’s the guess, though nothing is yet set in stone, but that’s what we’re looking at.”

Which of the three renewals has you most excited. Sound off below.

It was heavily touted as the gay Girls. Sadly, it never lived up to the hype with viewers and critics alike. After two seasons and only 18 episodes, HBO pulled the plug on Looking. As a consolation prize, the network promised a finale special that would tie up all the characters’ loose ends.

At long last, we’ll finally find out if Patrick (Jonathan Groff) chooses Kevin (Russell Tovey), Richie (Raul Castillo) or himself. The Looking wrap-up film will premiere at the Frameline Film Festival, taking place in San Francisco from June 16-26. It will reportedly close out the festival.

Fingers crossed HBO doesn’t take too much time after the festival ends to air the finale special. I’m still salty about the cancellation and God damnit I’ve waited long enough after the Season 2 finale.

Are you looking forward to the final chapter? Sound off below.

Beyonce Debuts Extended ‘Lemonade’ Trailer

On the heels of a cryptic “Lemonade” teaser comes an extended look at her mysterious worldwide premiere event airing on HBO on April 23. Just because there’s more footage though, it doesn’t necessarily mean fans have a clearer picture of what Beyonce has in store for her Hive next weekend. The 34-year-old superstar loves keeping people on their toes.

As previously stated, I’m assuming the HBO special has something to do with a new album. Her “Formation World Tour” kicks off just days later on April 27. But you know what they say about assuming.

The longer clip includes the same footage of Mrs. Carter rocking fierce blonde braids and a fur coat, but also features new scenes as well. One of the more interesting moments spotlights former America’s Next Top Model contestant Chantelle Brown who now goes by Winnie Harlow. The Canadian model who had vitiligo competed on Cycle 21 on ANTM where she placed sixth. Check out the extended teaser below.

Thirsty for some Beyonce? You’re in luck. The 34-year-old superstar is serving up some “Lemonade” next week. Exactly what that means, who knows? Whatever it is, it’ll be a worldwide premiere event. Once again, Bey is keeping her fans in the dark.

A 20-second clip titled “Lemonade” took over her YouTube page, Instagram, and official website this weekend. Rocking some fierce braids and a fur coat, Mrs. Carter is heard saying “What am I going to do, love?” She responds mysteriously with, “Going to do” twice. Always so shady that one 😉

With her “Formation World Tour” kicking off April 27, I’m assuming it’s her new album but you know what they say about assuming. Check out the clip below. Be sure to tune in to HBO on April 23 at 9 p.m.
