As if American Horror Story retelling an allegorical version of the 2016 election weren’t enough, HBO is about to take things much more literally. The producers of 2012's Game Change (including Tom Hanks!) have set their sights on an HBO miniseries of the 2016 election, because let’s face it, you can never escape.
Just days ago saw HBO announcing when Selina Meyer would begin her post-Veep career in Season 6, and so too do the boys of Silicon Valley now have their marching orders. Pied Piper will be back for Season 4 in April, albeit a bit later than their former Commander in Chief.
HBO has a lot to look forward to in 2017, including the returns of both Game of Thrones and Curb Your Enthusiasm, but if British men shouting is your thing, they’ve got you covered too. Welcome back John Oliver for 2017, as HBO goes all-out with the hits to promote Last Week Tonight Season 4.
Vice Principals Season 1 may be ending next month, but HBO NOW’s September slate also includes the series premiere of the network’s latest comedy offering, High Maintenance. For those interested in catching up with (or revisiting) newer films, HBO’s big September movie additions include The Revenant and Steve Jobs.
Any Game of Thrones fan has likely known for some time that Seasons 7 and 8 would mark the last for HBO’s adapted saga, though the network itself has expressed optimism for more. Now, HBO bosses dish on the plan to end with Season 8, as well what they’ve discussed with regard to a spinoff.
Game of Thrones bosses David Benioff and Dan Weiss haven’t followed up to confirm a potential 13 episodes between Seasons 7 and 8, let alone the later production date to accommodate winter weather, but we may yet have our first new clue. Reports suggest Game of Thrones Season 7 will shoot partly in Iceland in early 2017, but what does that mean for a start date?
