Stars and the executive producers from TNT’s The Last Ship treated fans to an exclusive new trailer at WonderCon this weekend and unveiled key art for the upcoming second season. The show was basic cable’s #1 new series last year and TNT is hoping for a strong repeat with the new season as well.
Based on William Brinkley’s novel, The Last Ship chronicles the aftermath of a global catastrophe that nearly wipes out the world’s population. Captain Tom Chandler’s (Eric Dane) Navy destroyer was able to avoid the disaster, potentially making Chandler and his crew among the last humans on earth. In its first season, the show reached an average of 14.5 million viewers across all platforms.
At WonderCon, cast members Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, Charles Parnell, Christina Elmore, John Pyper Ferguson, and Jocko Sims filled out the panel with executive producers and showrunners Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane and fellow EP, Jack Bender.
The Last Ship will begin its second season on Sunday, June 21, with a two-hour premiere at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)
As much as we are still somewhat skeptical, the more Marvel and Netflix put out about the upcoming Daredevil series, the more we’re being convinced it could be damn good. Case in point this week is a brand new trailer for the series featuring the blind lawyer turned vigilante Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil).
In it we get a lot of info about one of the most important characters in any story: the bad guy. Well, at least one of them anyway … Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin. We also get some more insight into what makes Matt Murdock tick and what his plans for the city are. Of course, Kingpin may have other ideas. Other very violent ideas.
Daredevil, which stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and D’Onofrio, premieres on Netflix on April 10. Check out the trailer after the break.
You could say we’re a bit skeptical about this one. But you can’t really blame us. After all, the last time Daredevil appeared on a screen it wasn’t the best experience for fans, to say the least. Okay, the movie sucked.
However, that bad experience looks like it really will be in the past now that we’ve seen the first trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Daredevil series. In short, it looks pretty darn good.
Check it out after the break. Daredevil comes to Netflix on April 10 with all episodes of the series being released at the same time.There goes that weekend.

On Thursday, February 19, Vikings returns to the History Channel for a third season and it’s going to be a whopper. Until then, here’s a bit of info to help get you ready.
While awaiting the land he’s been promised by the English, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), the “farmer who made himself a king,” turns his warriors towards the supposedly impenetrable city of Paris. Ever a warmonger, the new King can’t resist sieging the city and proving the strength and legend of his Norsemen. Family continues to play an important role for Ragnar, with his son Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) searching for his own place, his brother Rollo (Clive Standen) firmly at his side, and his former wife Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) now allied with him too.
Four new characters will join History’s hit scripted drama this season. Harbard (Kevin Durand), whose arrival has been dreamt of by Queen Aslaug, Siggy, and Helga, will turn up suddenly and have a profound effect on the three women. Kalf (Ben Robson) is Lagertha’s ambitious and perhaps duplicitous second in command. Emperor Charles of France (Lothaire Bluteau) will face off with the Vikings though he views the battle as spiritual, and his daughter, Princess Gisla (Morgana Polanski), may possess more courage and resolve than even he.
If you’re looking to catch up or just get a refresher, seasons one and two of Vikings are available on Amazon and Hulu. Check out the extended trailer for the new season after the break.
