Talk about intense!!! If this red band trailer doesn’t get you excited for Game of Thrones‘ return on Sunday, April 24, nothing will. Cersei boldly declares in the clip, “I choose violence.” And she’s not alone. It’s going to be a violent affair.

Adding even more drama is James Vincent McMorrow’s haunting cover of “Wicked Games.” You’ll never envision Chris Issak and Helena Christensen frolicking on the sandy beach ever again after watching this trailer.

And true to his word, Kit Harington’s recent claims about filming scenes of him being dead are indeed bang-on. Jon Snow’s corpse is featured in the clip. Check out the red band GoT Season 6 trailer below.

hbo-condemns-manny-pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley Jr. face off for the third time on April 9 in Las Vegas. HBO will air the Pay-Per-View bout despite the Filipino boxer’s controversial anti-gay rhetoric about same-sex relationships. Among the more damning comments include comparing the LGBT community to being “worse than animals.” His homophobic comments motivated Nike to drop him off their endorsement roster.

The network, which is home to plenty of LGBT-friendly programming, condemns Pacquiao, calling his recent comments “insensitive, offensive and deplorable.” They reveal they have an obligation to both fighters to air the bout. No doubt an iron-clad contract is the reason why they can’t back out and also the money is probably a ‘small’ factor. Read the network’s full statement below.

anita-hill-confirmation-biopic

Back in 1991, there was an epic ‘he said, she said’ taking place on Capitol Hill. During the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings, Anita Hill came forward with allegations about her former boss. It brought sexual harassment in the workplace on the national stage.

Hill claimed Thomas had sexually harassed her as her boss at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Even though Thomas was ultimately confirmed by a Senate vote of 52-48, the hearings would forever change victims’ rights and sexual politics in the workplace. Plus, who could forget Anita’s testimony about Clarence talking about a pubic hair on a Coke can. Ew!!!!!!

Kerry Washington, who plays Hill, shared the first trailer via Twitter. Confirmation also stars Jeffrey Wright, Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Hudson. It airs on HBO on April 16. Check out the clip below.

War is on the horizon for Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Before the battle begins, the fantasy series wants fans to pledge their allegiance for their favorite house. Are you Team Stark, Team Targaryen or Team Lannister?

The three new teasers released by HBO don’t include any actual footage from the upcoming season, but includes audio from High Sparrow, Ramsay Bolton and more.

Game of Thrones returns on HBO on April 24. Check out the teasers below.

Obviously, Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke won’t piece everything together. After all, there’s still a sixth and final season in the works before Girls signs off forever. Gotta leave something for them to figure out for the last batch of episodes.

If HBO decides to develop a spin-off, might I suggest an entire series based on Shoshanna living in Japan. The brief glimpses in the promo we see of her and Aidy Bryant in the Land of the Rising Sun are hilarious. Check out the latest clip below.

Girls To End After Season 6

girls-final-season

Season 5 of Girls has yet to premiere but multiple media outlets confirm that Season 6 will be the Brooklyn quartet’s final hoorah.

It should really come as no surprise. After all, Lena Dunham didn’t make her feelings about ending the HBO comedy a secret. She’s stated in multiple interviews that Season 6 would be the perfect time to wrap up Girls.

“It’s really exciting,” Dunham previously told radio host Elvis Duran in Sept. 2015. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and I’m going to be 30, so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world.”

UPDATE: Dunham confirmed the news. Read her statement below.

the-leftovers-season-3-renewal

Despite having a sensational second season, creatively speaking of course, The Leftovers lost a good chunk of its viewership from its freshman run. I was absolutely addicted this season. Spectacular writing all around. Even with its anemic ratings, HBO decided to renew the Justin Theroux show for a third and final season.

“It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome back Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta and the extraordinary talent behind The Leftovers for its third and final season,” HBO’s Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “This show has proven to be one of the most distinctive HBO series and we are extremely proud of its unrivaled originality, which has resulted in such a passionate following by our HBO viewers. We admire and fully support Damon’s artistic vision and respect his decision to bring the show to its conclusion next season.”

Even though I’m excited to see more of Theroux on television (hopefully full frontal next season), I thought the Season 2 finale was beautifully done. For a show that’s typically depressing, I loved how Theroux’s character looked like he had his happy ending. Read creator Damon Lindelof’s thoughts on the final season below.

The Girls Drift Apart In Girls Season 5 Trailer

girls-season-5

Friendship is forever complicated,” the clip description states. Especially with these four ladies. They don’t appear to have much in common and frankly have been sorta mean to each other for four seasons. Why are they even still friends? Maybe that’ll be addressed during the upcoming season.

HBO just debuted the Girls Season 5 trailer. Here’s where the girls are at. Lena Dunham has a new love interest in the form of Jake Lacy. Her ex, Adam Driver, barely appears in the trailer, hinting perhaps at very limited screen time. Allison Williams is getting hitched. Zosia Mamet is in Japan and Jemima Kirke is… Actually, I have no idea.

Check out the trailer below. Girls returns to HBO on February 21, about a month later than it normally does.
