‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 5 Teaser: “All Empires Must Fall”

It’s lonely being at the top, as Boardwalk Empire gangster Nucky (Steve Buscemi) can attest. In the first teaser for the final season, HBO prepares viewers for Nucky’s empire to begin crumbling around him, but while Nucky may be alone, that does not mean he will go out quietly. The final season is sure to have its share of fireworks.

Boardwalk Empire season five premieres September 2014 on HBO.

‘Hemlock Grove’ Season 2 Posters Preview the Demons Within

“Even Demons Have Demons.”

Olivia (Famke Janssen), Roman (Bill Skarsgard), Shelley (Madeleine Martin) and Norman (Dougray Scott) all struggle with their inner demons in the new Hemlock Grove season two posters. Each stylistic photo features the characters alongside a shadow version of themselves revealing the darkness and pain the werewolves, clairvoyants and other supernaturally inclined townspeople battle with. See all four posters in the gallery below.

Hemlock Grove season two will be available exclusively on Netflix beginning July 11th.

‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’ Sneak Peek

This July 30th, Syfy is bringing you more stilted dialogue, more comically large bats and more sharks in ridiculous places– that’s right, I’m talking about Sharknado 2: The Second One. Because sharks being swept up by tornadoes and terrorizing New York is definitely the kind of thing that would happen twice. In a three minute clip from the film we are treated to drama between Ian Ziering and his brother-in-law and, more importantly, sharks on the subway.

Sharknado 2: The Second One premieres Wednesday, July 30 at 9/8c on Syfy.

Lifetime Previews New Thriller ‘The Lottery’

Set in the year 2025 when there are fewer than a dozen six-year-olds in the country, The Lottery explores a world population that is beginning to dwindle and the conspiracy that may be behind the decline in birth rates. The latest teaser for Lifetime’s drama focuses less on the personal ramifications of the mass infertility and instead reveals a government reluctant to implant the fertilized embryos that could be society’s only hope for new life.

The Lottery premieres Sunday, July 20th at 10/9c on Lifetime.

HBO Debuts Official ‘Jonah From Tonga’ Trailer

Summer Heights‘ favorite bad boy Jonah has his own show, Jonah From Tonga.

From actor/creator Chris Lilley, Jonah From Tonga is his third comedy about the Australian school system. After being kicked out of public school and spending some time abroad, Jonah (Lilley) is back to cause trouble in a private school. Are you a fan of Lilley’s eccentric teen characters?

Jonah From Tonga premieres with back-to-back episode beginning at 10PM Friday, August 8th on HBO.

Are You Ready to ‘Dig’ Into USA’s Miniseries?

USA is joining the event series train this fall with Dig, starring Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche. There is a bit of Da Vinci’s Code flavor to the series that finds conspiracy in a repeated symbol, but the beautiful locale is distracting enough to keep doubts at bay. Besides, it’s only six episodes long– just the right length for an entertaining, but likely confusing conspiracy thriller to be.

Dig premieres Fall 2014 on USA.
