It’s time for a new season, and when it comes to television, Fall is all about premieres. This August, we look at what’s new in TV, movies, and books:
“New MacGyver Trailer Reunites Hero and Paperclip” – Entertainment Weekly
There’s a new reboot of MacGyver coming out on September 23, 2016. I’ve watched a couple episodes of the original series and I’m actually kind of excited to see this newer version.
After months of buildup, the Gilmore Girls revival is finally here! The four-part special will be available on Netflix, that savior of cult classics, November 25, 2016.
I don’t know about you guys, but nothing gets my attention like the phrase “murder mystery comedy.” That’s how Alia Shawkat’s new TBS show Search Party has been described, and I for one can’t wait to watch it when it premieres November 21, 2016.
“Meet the Women of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” – Nerdist.com
The film adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, directed by the kind of weird Tim Burton, releases September 30, 2016, and promises to be utterly bizarre if the trailer is anything to go by.
The 13th, a documentary by Ava DuVernay about the prison system in the United States, releases October 7, 2016, in theaters and on Netflix.
“Read the first chapter of A Torch Against the Night, the sequel to An Ember in the Ashes” – Entertainment Weekly
Good new for fans of writer Sabaa Tahir – the sequel to her book An Ember in the Ashes, A Torch Against the Night, comes out today, August 30, 2016.
‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel in the Works, Release Date Set – The Hollywood Reporter
After the buzz surrounding Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, J.K. Rowling’s magical world is the star of the show in the movie adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, one of the most anticipated releases for this fall. The movie premieres November 18, 2016.
Last but definitely not least (technically not last, either), Tahereh Mafi’s new book Furthermore comes out August 30, 2016. Come back on Friday for my review!
