Game of Thrones may not return until at least 2019, but HBO viewers will have their fix of Kit Harington before the year is out. The erstwhile Jon Snow’s new BBC Gunpowder series will get a limited run on HBO, including fellow Thrones stars and Leftovers alum.
We’re close enough now to Game of Thrones’ end that you might forget its troubled beginnings. Near of the entire original pilot had to be re-shot, for which series star Kit Harington now reveals that his bosses David Benioff and Dan Weiss “made a lot of mistakes.”
Just when you thought Nic Pizzolatto might have formally lain True Detective to rest, in comes Deadwood riding to the rescue. Reports indicate that Season 3 of HBO’s once-revered anthology series is in development at last, shepherded by none other than Deadwood boss David Milch.
Now that Game of Thrones has shuffled off its usual spring perch alongside Silicon Valley and Veep, it’s going to need company. Enter Issa Rae and Dwayne Johnson, as Insecure Season 2 and Ballers Season 3 officially have their marching orders for July.
Oh, we’re sorry, did you think HBO would give up its partnership with one of the world’s last true movie stars? Whatever your take on the football-fueled Ballers (it’s definitely less obnoxious than Entourage), HBO and Dwayne Johnson have officially laid down a Season 3 renewal for next year.
