Hello. I write you from my new form, an Alex Mack-like puddle of silvery goo, because I have been forever changed by this HBO teaser. Yearning for the return of Veep? Bloodlusting for the final season of Game of Thrones? Or thirsty for the LONG-anticipated resurrection of Deadwood? This video’s got that and so much more.
Your body is not ready.
Deadwood is back with a film that will hopefully bring some closure to the dangling conflict between sneering but righteous sheriff Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) and charismatic but sinister kingpin Al Swearengen (Ian McShane). Plus, this teaser promotes new seasons of 2 Dope Queens, Ballers, Barry, Big Little Lies, Game of Thrones, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Silicon Valley, Veep and more.
But with so much new coming to HBO, let’s breakdown the highlights:
Euphoria, a teen drama series that follows a group of high school students as they grapple with issues of drugs, sex, and violence.
The Righteous Gemstones, a Danny McBride-created comedy series about a famous yet dysfunctional family of televangelists, played by McBride, Adam DeVine, and John Goodman.
Mrs. Fletcher, The Leftover’s Tom Perrotta offers a comedy series about a single mom whose son has moved out for college as she looks to begin a new life on her own.
Years and Years, a drama series from Doctor Who’s Russell T. Davies and starring Emma Thompson. Per HBO: “As Britain is rocked by unstable political, economic and technological advances, members of the Lyons family converge on one crucial night in 2019.”
