Ring-ring goes the bell. HBO said today that the second and final season of Vice Principals will premiere just as the new school year kicks in. The angry comedy returns with the first of nine new episodes at 10:30 PM Sunday, September 17.
The shows sophomore year sees the tumultuous school year at North Jackson High continue, and the new semester brings lots of changes. Gamby (Danny McBride) and Russell (Walton Goggins) are about to learn that the only thing harder than gaining power is holding on to it. Kimberly Hebert Gregory, Georgia King, Busy Phillips, Shea Whigham and Sheaun McKinney co-star.
Guilty pleasure and whatnot, but I'm probably the most excited for Penn & Teller: Fool Us next week. I don't have many other Summer shows I'm looking forward to, honestly.
The countdown is on. Starz has set an 8 PM Sunday, September 10, premiere for Season 3 of its time-traveling drama Outlander, starring Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan. The premium cable net also released the key art, which shows the stars on opposite sides of the standing stone that once brought them together; check it out below.
That show was absolutely plastered across Deadline for a bit. I genuinely thought it was like a parody thing at first.
I watched the first episode of Hooten & the Lady. I'm a big fan of adventure stories like this, so it is right up my alley. It definitely has a bit of a Romancing the Stone/Uncharted vibe to it. Really looking forward to the rest of the season.
Top of the Lake: China Girl starts Thursday 27 July at 9pm on BBC Two. The full series will be available on BBC iPlayer from 10pm on Thursday 27 July.' I will probably cobble together an OT for it.
It's listed as "September" on Sundance.

Well continuing with disliked trailers...
Peter Kosminsky, (writer/director of The Promise, director of Wolf Hall) takes on young British men and women leaving home to join ISIS. The actual show itself looks good, but the shitshow around it is going to be spectacular.
HBO PR from upfronts with a list of what's coming up and a few dates for the Fall. Also includes Cinemax discussion.
If you didn't know any better, that press release would make it sound like the second season of Outcast is still in development or production, rather than sitting on a shelf after having already aired elsewhere in the world. So bizarre that they can't or won't even give a release window for it.HBO PR from upfronts with a list of what's coming up and a few dates for the Fall. Also includes Cinemax discussion.
