HBO Renews The Leftovers For A Second Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Despite declining ratings since its premiere and painfully slow storytelling, HBO has renewed The Leftovers for a second season.

“We are thrilled to bring back The Leftovers for a second season with the exceptional talents of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta,” says Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming. “It has been truly exciting to see the overwhelming response to their provocative and original storytelling. We look forward to continuing the journey as the show delves deeper into the lives of those who remain.”

While I was initially intrigued by the show’s premise, I grew tired quite quickly. It’s so depressing and features no likeable characters. Since my partner loves it, I only half-watch it now in the background. Are you still watching or did you break up with it already?

The one positive thing about the show’s renewal is that hopefully viewers are treated with more scenes of Justin Theroux jogging. How distracting was that bulge? Even co-star Liv Tyler talked about its mesmerizing quality. #jenniferanistonisoneluckybitch. Check out an image of Theroux’s beast lurking underneath his jogging pants below.

Entertainment Weekly highlights television’s best 25 characters for their latest issue. To celebrate, the publication convinced two actors to take on different personas for two collector covers.

Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus swap roles for a gender-bending shoot. Both actors do drag to channel each other’s popular characters on House of Cards and Veep respectively.

Julia dressed as HoC’s Frank Underwood is far more convincing than Kevin as Veep‘s Selina Meyer. Spacey does not make for one pretty girl. Check out the other cover below.

During their panel at San Diego Comic-Con, HBO announced nine new cast members joining Game of Thrones for Season Five. They range from veteran actors to relative newbies.

Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), newcomers Toby Sebastian and Nell Tiger Free, DeObia Oparei (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Enzo Cilenti (Rome), Jessica Henwick (North by Northhamptonshire), Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (The Whistleblower), Academy nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) and the legendary Jonathan Pryce (Ronin) will play key roles in the upcoming season. Watch the video below to see what parts they’ll be taking on for GoT.

In addition to the big news, the show shared a blooper reel from Season 4. It’s so odd seeing the actors laugh and show their lighthearted sides given the dramatic nature of the series. Pedro Pascal who plays Prince Oberyn almost sets himself on fire. Check out all the hijinks and line flubbing from your favorites including Kit Harington below.

The 2014 Primetime Emmy Nominations & Snubs

The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were announced this morning at the TV Academy in North Hollywood. HBO, once again, reigns supreme beating out rival networks with 99 total nominations. Silicon Valley, The Normal Heart, Veep, True Detective and naturally Game of Thrones all being recognized by the Academy. Behind it were CBS with 47 noms, NBC with 46, and FX with 45.

In terms of individual shows, Game of Thrones is this year’s most nominated program. Close behind were Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven with 18 and 17 nominations respectively. I was pleasantly surprised to see Adam Driver (Girls) and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) get some love.

On the flip side, Modern Family‘s Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara were snubbed. Also missing out were The Blacklist‘s James Spader and The Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany. How many characters does the latter have to play to get some Emmy lovin’.

The Americans, Sons of Anarchy and The Good Wife also missed out in the big categories. The latter’s omission certainly hurts given no broadcast shows made the Best Drama cut. Arguably, the CBS program had one of its best creative years ever.

Winners will be announced at the 66th annual Primetime Emmys ceremony on August 25, to be hosted by Seth Meyers. Check out the rest of the nominations below.

HBO began their 10-week Beyonce music miniseries last night before True Blood. Kicking off things was Bey performing “Ghost/Haunted” off her multi-platinum selling self-titled album.

Each week, the network will air four-minute segments filmed during her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Check out the clip below which features a dancer popping up from underneath the judge. Unlike Michelle Williams during the Super Bowl, his landing isn’t nearly as shaky :) #godblessmichelle

After waiting patiently for seven seasons, producers finally gave fans what they’ve been craving for. Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) finally did the deed on last night’s episode of True Blood. Albeit a dream, but still.

The two actors passionately kissed and grinded their naked bodies together. When Jason drank Eric’s blood last season, thereby saving his life, fans knew this sexual pairing would eventually come to fruition. Thankfully, HBO didn’t let the series end without bestowing this wondrous moment.

“There was word on the street that a scene was coming, and to be honest, Alex and I had been — not necessarily begging to work together — but we’d been pondering the thought, ‘What if we were ever put in a scene where it was just the two of us? What would happen?’” Kwanten told TVLine. “And this is what our illustrious writers came up with.”

“I always have a lot of fun, and I think that’s the important thing to remember,” Ryan added about filming the scene. “We’re just there to have fun and to stay true to the characters. Thinking back to this particular scene, I just remember Alex and I laughing a lot.”

As hot as seeing these two dudes go at it, last year’s shaving scene between Kwanten and Robert Kazinsky is still my favorite homoerotic scene on the supernatural series. Check out last night’s scorching moment below.

Last time Beyonce collaborated with HBO, she gave the network its most-viewed music special since 2003. Life Is But a Dream drew 1.8 million viewers the night it premiered and grossed a total of 8.9 million viewers. It’s no wonder HBO wants to stay in the Beyonce business.

The network announced a concert miniseries dubbed Beyonce: X10. Couldn’t make the Mrs. Carter World Tour? No worries. The 10-episode series will feature weekly performances each about four minutes long which will air beginning June 29 before each episode of True Blood.
