While the BBC was making history by naming the first female Doctor, the current showrunner was heading a trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2017 – where he presented the first teaser for the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special, Twice Upon a Time.
The teaser reunites the Doctor with Bill Potts and features a unique event with the first and twelfth Doctors teaming up.
Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time will premiere on December 25th, of course.
Season Two of FX’s unique vampire saga The Strain is set for Sunday, July 12th (10/9C).
New York City is being transformed and no one is coming to its rescue. So it falls to the CDC’s Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and Dr. Nora Martinez to find a bioweapon to kill the infestation, while holocaust survivor Abraham Setrakian searches for an ancient book that just might contain a way to destroy it.
The creepy series The Strain – based on the trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan – is poised to return. Judging from FX’s new trailer, it’s going to be darker, creepier and messier than season one. I can’t wait!
Check it out after the jump. The Strain returns this summer.
Season 1 of “The Strain” came to a close yesterday. For those who eagerly wait for next year’s season 2, let’s take a walk down memory lane with a collection of interviews from several of the cast members. During a roundtable discussion with several reporters/bloggers including myself, I had the opportunity to chat with Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, David Bradley, Richard Sammel, Natalie Brown, and Ben Hyland. Check out the interviews of this talented group of actors as we recall this summer hit.
FX’s hit horror series The Strain has been picked up for a second season. The critically acclaimed series (Eclipse gave it an A+) takes the idea of horrific, not sparkly and tormented, vampires and amps it up to creepy new heights by emphasizing its implacable, disease-like elements. The news of the show’s renewal comes with seven episodes yet to air in its debut season.
Season One of The Strain will be released on DVD And Blu-Ray on December 2nd. For further details, follow the jump.
The Strain (FX, Sundays, 10/9C) brings the idea of vampires as evil predatory creatures who do not charm and most definitely do not sparkle. Adapted from the novels by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan – both Executive Producers on the series, and writers of the premiere; Del Toro directed – this is a series to be watched with a nightlight on and the hope that it won’t inspire nightmares.
David Bradley is going from playing William Hartnell, the First Doctor in Adventures in Time and Space (premiering tonight on BBC America), to playing pawn shop owner/vampire expert Professor Abraham Setrakian in FX’s The Strain – the new series based on the bestselling horror trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Bradley joins a cast that already includes Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez
The Strain is scheduled to premiere in July 2014. Check out the press release for further details.
