Not Dead Yet has been pitched as Gina Rodriguez’s return to network television, but as star vehicles go, it’s as feeble as its protagonist. Rodriguez toyed with viewers’s expectations in Jane the Virgin, bringing new layers to a character rooted in familiar genre tropes. But her latest character, Nell Serano, an obituary writer who begins seeing the ghosts of her subjects, is stuck, unable to shake her malaise about life not going her way. While Nell does show small signs of momentum in later episodes, it feels as if co-creators David Windsor and Casey Johnson don’t know what to do with her — as if they, like Nell, are fumbling around, waiting for someone to point them in the right direction.
Succession’s Season 3 finale, “All the Bells Say,” turned everything about the relationships between the Roys and their closest companions on its head. Shiv (Sarah Snook) was faced with the ultimate betrayal by her husband Tom (Matthew Macfadyen), Kendall (Jeremy Strong) was ready to play nice and join forces with his siblings, and Roman (Kieran Culkin) finally let go of his undying loyalty to his father. In the final moments of the episode, which aired in December 2021, Shiv’s realization of what Tom had done marked a shift in the family (and show’s) dynamic. Now, Season 4 is right around the corner to show us what a firmly divided Roy family looks like in the face of one of Waystar Royco’s most defining moments. Here’s everything we know about Season 4 of Succession so far.
It’s been 13 years since King of the Hill aired its final episode, but now the show will find new life with a reboot at Hulu after Fox dropped the project last year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the revival has been in the works since 2017, when creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels reunited with the original cast at Sketchfest in San Francisco to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series premiere. But as certain recent animated reboots have proven, not every beloved cartoon needs a modern update.

If you pay any attention at all to TV reviews and news, you’ve likely heard by now that Poker Face’s creator Rian Johnson and its star Natasha Lyonne intend their Peacock mystery-comedy series to be a throwback to classic ’70s and ’80s detective dramas like Columbo and The Rockford Files. If you’ve watched the show, it’s hard to miss the influences. The opening credits’s font looks charmingly vintage, for one thing.
[Spoilers abound for The Last of Us Episode 3, "Long Long Time," and both The Last of Us games.]. In the decade since its release, much has been written about representation within The Last of Us video game and, even more notably, its sequel Part II. The series has garnered as much praise for its handling of queer relationships in the midst of an apocalyptic scenario as criticism about the way the games approach everything from race to trans characters.
Freeform thriller The Watchful Eye may look like a spiritual successor to Cruel Summer, the anthology that became an instant hit when it debuted in 2021, but viewers would be wise to resist comparing the two. While Cruel Summer’s first season examined grooming and the villainization of women by 1990s media culture, The Watchful Eye layers a Hitchcockian premise with the “eat the rich” sentiment that has taken hold of contemporary pop culture. The result is a young adult drama that’s both compulsively watchable and socially aware, a rare combination in the genre.
