When will Outlander season 4 hit Netflix? We have the info on when the Starz series will debut seasons 4 and 5 on Netflix.
A sneak peek at what the future holds for the alternate history Apple TV+ show.

Commentary: As the show makes its debut on NBC's Peacock streaming service, let's remember what made it so frakking great.
The revolution in a galaxy far, far away has always been televised.Before the arrival of Disney Plus, the hours of Star Wars content produced for TV outweighed that for the big screen by a factor of at least four-to-one.The bulk of those numbers are from the franchise's most recent animated series: The Clone Wars(2008–present), Rebels (2014-2018) and now Resistance (2018-present).We then saw the Ewoks and Droids animated series that followed in their footsteps, the former being an early credit for Batman: The Animated Series and Harley Quinn cocreator Paul Dini.But pointing out that Star Wars has always had a healthy televised life isn't just "well, actually" peevishness -- it's about getting to the heart of what makes the franchise tick.While some point to The Mandalorian as Disney's great backup plan for the Star Wars franchise now that the Skywalker saga is coming to an end, television has always been how the franchise has lived on.
Apple wants to go to the moon.Its pilots: Maril Davis, Ben Nedivi, Matt Wolpert, and Ronald Moore, creative forces behind fan favorites like Fargo, Battlestar Galactica, and Outlander.In the team’s most recent creation, For All Mankind, Moore and company introduce audiences to a new history of the space program: One where the Russians made it to the moon first; where Ted Kennedy cancelled his party on Chappaquiddick; and where national heroes like Buzz Aldrin and Wernher von Braun become people, wracked with their own insecurities, flaws, and humanity.What seems like a devastating premise actually yields a much richer alternate history for NASA.“The story of the space program in the ‘70s is kind of a sad one,” says Moore, speaking with WIRED’s Peter Rubin at the WIRED25 Conference on Saturday.The mission to Mars was scrapped, and budgets were slashed.
Have you already burned through the collective libraries of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime like an arsonist vacationing in Alexandria?Never fear, the next generation of streaming services is here.Apple TV+ is Apple’s premium, ad-free streaming platform, built on the promise of quality projects from big-name talent.Still, time is limited, so we’ve broken down which shows are truly worth watching.Here are our picks for the best shows on Apple TV+.Note: This list is regularly updated as new shows are released.
It’s November, and that means three things: Pumpkin pie, colorful leaves, and the launch of Apple’s new, ad-free streaming service, Apple TV+.Although the service doesn’t have nearly the quantity of titles that competitors such as Netflix and Amazon Prime do, Apple has focused on a smaller number of prestige projects from various icons of film and television.Apple TV+’s November lineup includes workplace scandal drama The Morning Show, the hip reimagining of a literary icon in Dickinson, and a reboot of classic children’s mystery series Ghostwriter.Our top picks for NovemberDrawing on the sexual assault scandals that have plagued television news networks in recent years, The Morning Show follows Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston), an anchor on the popular news program The Morning Show.She stands at a career crossroads after her co-host, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), is fired due to allegations of sexual misconduct.
The long-awaited Apple TV+ is finally here and you can grab it for a seven-day trial absolutely free.The new video streaming service launched today in 100 countries, including the UK, and it can be accessed on an iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV or any other supporting device with the Apple TV app installed, such as Amazon's Fire TV devices and most Rokus.After the week-long trial ends, it will cost UK viewers £4.99 a month to keep, although there are only eight TV series and two movies available on the service at the moment and three of the series are for kids.Unlike the upcoming Disney+, Apple doesn't have a huge library of content, or indeed any pre-existing library of content, to pour into the service.If you were lucky enough to purchase a new Apple device after 10th September you're eligible for a whole year's worth of Apple TV+ for free.The Morning Show starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell is the launch title that has been getting the headlines, although critical responses have been mixed, with the gorgeous-looking For All Mankind from Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D Moore, an alternate-history sci-fi drama in which the space race never ended, drawing warmer reviews.
In the first episode of For All Mankind, Apple TV Plus' fictionalized space race drama, something in the room is amiss.And so, For All Mankind, which premieres on the new streaming platform Nov. 1, kicks off its alternate imagining of the space race.It's the mid-century modern world you'd expect, with mustard-colored shirts, tasteful high heels, bottled-up emotions and cigarettes in every hand.This version of NASA faces two primary directives driven by Soviet advances and a presumably sweaty Richard Nixon (a periodic presence via phone): establish a military base on the moon and put a woman up there too -- preferably a blonde.Sometimes it feels like For All Mankind could just be about the group of women training to be astronauts in the face of skepticism, sexism and a steaming pile of microaggressions, partly because the women face plenty such obstacles.Another, Molly Cobb (Sonya Walger), is presented as being one of the Mercury 13, a real-life group of women who underwent the same screening as the male Mercury astronauts.
You see, there are only a few working days left before WIRED25, our two-day live event that, in many ways, brings to life the November issue of WIRED, titled Have a Nice Future: Stories of 25 People Racing to Save Us.A few months back, as we began planning the November issue, we started to feel that national malaise, the distress that surrounded the environment, health, cybersecurity, politics.So join us in San Francisco on Friday, November 8, and Saturday, November 9, for two days of WIRED events.Friday will be a day of conversations with some of the biggest names in tech; Saturday will be a day of culture and films that includes stars like Chris Evans, Rob McElhenney, and N. K. Jemisin.On Friday at the Commonwealth Club on the San Francisco waterfront you’ll hear from:Anne Neuberger, the director of the NSA’s newly formed Cybersecurity Directorate, who will decrypt the NSA (well, sort of) with WIRED’s own Garrett Graff.
Apple’s March 25 event featured the tagline “It’s Show Time” and served as the official unveiling of the company’s slate of television and movie programming for its new Apple TV streaming service, dubbed Apple TV+.The service will be an ad-free subscription service featuring on-demand online and offline content.Those shows include the alternate-history drama For All Mankind (see trailer above), created by Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore, which explores what would have happened if the international space race never ended.Apple has already ordered two seasons of the series, which brings Steve Carell back to television as part of a high-powered cast that includes Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.A half-hour comedy called Dickinson stars Hailee Steinfeld as Emily Dickinson, the American poet who became famous years after her death.Apple describes the series as a look at “the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of [the] rebellious young poet.” Despite its 1800s setting, the show’s first trailer features several modern flourishes.
Apple’s new premium subscription TV service is launching on November 1, and there’s a new trailer for one of its original shows, the Ronald D. Moore project “For All Mankind.”The series is a fictional period piece set in the late ’60s/early ’70s that follows an alternate timeline in which Soviet Russia, not the U.S., is the first to land a man on the Moon.It seems like there will be a lot of fallout as a result of the U.S. losing this key battle in the space race, but the biggest divergence from our actual history might be that the Americans seem to go all-in on an astronaut qualification and training program for women much earlier than they did in real life.Watching this, which is more focused on the various cast members than previous trailers for this show (which set up the premise), I get strong “The Calculating Stars” and the entire “Lady Astronaut” novel series vibes, which are great books by Mary Robinette Kowal if you’re looking for alternative history with a space bent right now (and don’t want to wait for Apple’s $5 per month service to launch).That said, I’m definitely still very interested in checking this out when it is available, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s from the same creator who brought us the early 2000s’ “Battlestar Galactica” reboot and “Outlander,” my favorite time-traveling British history romp.
It's also not an all you can eat buffet -- most series will premiere with the first three episodes available immediately, then a new episode will arrive every week.That serving of content is relatively small.Below are the top five launch titles that might help us see what all the fuss is about.Helpsters is made by the same folk at nonprofit Sesame Workshop and aims to teach kids how to code -- whether they realize it or not.If Helpsters' main goal is to teach kids to be kind, we'll accept being schooled by felt with eyes on it.Not only do the Russians reach the moon before the Americans, but there are astronauts.
The streaming video environment is more crowded than ever these days, and not to be left out, Apple has its own subscription video service, Apple TV+, scheduled to launch later this year.With so many options out there, cord-cutters have a lot to consider when it comes to deciding which streaming service to invest in.In order to help you make an informed decision, here’s everything we know is coming to Apple TV+, as well as everything that’s been rumored so far.A sci-fi series from Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore that explores what would have happened if the international space race had continued long after it actually ended.A revival of the sci-fi and fantasy anthology series of the same name, Amazing Stories features Steven Spielberg on board as producer.(Think Jordan Peele’s new Twilight Zone series, but on Apple’s service instead of CBS All Access.)
The streaming landscape is getting crowded these days, with multiple streaming services to choose from now from all sorts of players, and many more coming soon.With Apple planning to launch its own Apple TV+ platform later this year, the service will have a steep hill to climb if it wants to challenge the current streaming king, Netflix.Apple has a long list of movie and TV projects in the works from some of Hollywood’s top creative minds and biggest talents, including an alternate-history drama from Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ronald D. Moore, a sci-fi anthology series from Steven Spielberg, a musical drama from J.J. Abrams, and a dramedy about a morning talk show featuring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell, among other projects.In order to get in the game, Apple is spending big money on its projects, too, with its fantasy drama See — which stars Jason Momoa and is set in a post-apocalyptic future where the few remaining humans on Earth have been rendered blind — reportedly costing around $15 million per episode.Last year’s Roma from director Alfonso Cuarón was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won in three categories, including the prestigious Oscar for “Best Achievement in Directing.” Many of the streaming service’s TV projects have become annual Primetime Emmy Awards darlings, with House of Cards, The Crown, and Orange Is the New Black all frequent visitors to the Emmy stage.The company paid more than $12 billion in 2018 to acquire and produce new shows and movies, and is expected to invest more than $15 billion this year.
In March, Apple offered us a glimpse of the range of TV shows it’s launching with its new service, Apple TV+.You can get a taste of the upcoming content right now, with the trailer for the show, For All Mankind.Created by Ronald Moore (of Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica fame), the series is centered around the historic Apollo 11 moon mission of 1969.However, it’s a fictional show with alternative reality – akin to The Man in the High Castle and The Watchmen.In an interview with Collider, he confirmed that there will be 10 episodes of one hour each.The clip above shows Moore and his team describing how they worked to make the scenes look and feel as realistic as possible, hiring a group of tech consultants to help them along the way.
One of the shows coming to Apple’s forthcoming streaming original content video service, Apple TV+, is ‘For All Mankind,’ a series led by showrunner Ronald D. Moore, whose most notable previous credit is creating Syfy’s ‘Battlestar Galactica’ remake series.‘For All Mankind’ is an alternate history fiction series that imagines what happens if the Russians beat the U.S. to being the first to land an astronaut on the Moon.In a new featurette, Moore and his fellow series creators, along with some of their technical advisors, talk about the show, and what the actual Apollo 11 Moon landing meant to thew world.The 40th anniversary of that real historical event is coming up on July 20, but you’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the Joel Kinnaman-starring ‘For All Mankind’ – it’s arriving this Fall along with Apple TV+, but we don’t yet have specifics on exactly when, or on how much the service will cost when it does become available.The official first trailer for ‘For All Mankind’ is below, in case you missed its debut last month.There’s not much to go on here but the premise definitely seems engaging, and I do detect a very BSG -ish vibe from what scenes are available to see here.
Shows set in alternate histories are all the rage right now, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Apple has its own spin on a “What if?” theme in the works.Apple delivered the first look at For All Mankind — expected to be the first original series for streaming platform Apple TV Plus — during the opening presentation of its annual Worldwide Developer Conference, held June 3 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.The series is set in an alternate timeline in which the space race never ended, and nations continue to push each other in a competition to journey farther into the galaxy.For All Mankind has an impressive sci-fi pedigree, with award-winning Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek writer Ronald D. Moore on board the project as creator and co-writer, along with Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.In the preview of the series that debuted during Apple’s WWDC keynote presentation, the show presents a timeline in which the Soviet Union was first to land on the moon, prompting an escalation of the space race far beyond the history we know.Streaming television networks have found quite a bit of success with exploring alternate timelines in recent years.
On Monday, Apple unveiled the first trailer to "For All Mankind," a new show from "Battlestar Galactica" showrunner Ronald D. Moore.It's coming to Apple TV Plus, the iPhone maker's forthcoming premium TV subscription video service."Told through the lives of NASA astronauts, engineers and their families, For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams," says Apple's official synopsis.The trailer debuted at WWDC 2019, Apple's annual software developer conference.It's not yet clear when it will be available to watch.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Reese Witherspoon, J.J. Abrams, Jason Momoa and a who's who of other celebs filled the Steve Jobs Theater.The TV app's refresh will go live this month, but we'll be waiting for Apple's TV Plus service until the fall.Or will it focus on integrating its own subscription programming next to that from add-on channels and iTunes-like rental and purchase options, similar to Amazon Prime Video and its Channels?But ahead of the March event, Apple was reportedly racing to finalize deals with networks to license catalogs of already released content that'll supplement its original shows.Disney, for example, has said it will price its forthcoming Disney Plus streaming subscription less than Netflix specifically because it won't have the same breadth of original exclusives as Netflix.A space drama from Outlander and Battlestar Galactica producer Ronald D. Moore called For All Mankind.
Next week, we may finally find out what its $1 billion-plus worth of TV shows is all about.Apple is expected to unveil its rumored video service, as well as a news subscription service, at an event March 25 at its Cupertino, California, campus in the Steve Jobs theater.The company's pipeline of original programs with big stars -- including at least five shows that have wrapped shooting -- has been fueling speculation for more than a year.That suggests the flashy presentation Monday will be all about services.Apple has nabbed big-name deals with J.J. Abrams, Brie Larson, Jason Momoa, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, M. Night Shyamalan, Battlestar Galactica producer Ronald D. Moore, Steven Spielberg, among many others.The company also hired two top television executives to spearhead the effort.
Apple’s March 25 event sports the tagline “It’s showtime,” and the gathering — which is expected to gather Hollywood executives and filmmakers in Cupertino, California, instead of the usual techies — is rumored to be the official unveiling of the company’s slate of television and movie programming.As with any Apple projects, official details regarding the programming slate have been hard to come by, but a recent — and not surprisingly, unconfirmed — report suggests that at least five projects have completed filming, with a long list of additional TV shows and feature-length movies in various stages of development or production.Although nothing is 100 percent official at this point, The New York Times reports that list of projects that have completed filming include Are You Sleeping?, a mystery starring Octavia Spencer and based on a Kathleen Barber novel about a cold case reopened by a podcasting detective; For All Mankind, a sci-fi series from Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore that explores what would have happened if the international space race had continued long after it did in our timeline; and Dickinson, a comedy series based on the life of poet Emily Dickinson and starring Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Jane Krakowski (30 Rock).Also finished, but lacking a title, is a new comedy series from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia duo Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, as well as an untitled thriller from M. Night Shyamalan that stars Rupert Grint, Lauren Ambrose, and Nell Tiger Free.Apple’s slate of programming still currently in development or production also includes some high-profile projects that have been reported on in the past, but in keeping with the company’s traditional secrecy, have been kept under wraps beyond the bare minimum of confirmed details.The biggest one of the bunch — both in its A-list cast and Apple’s investment in it — is an untitled series that explores the behind-the-scenes drama of a morning TV news show, which will team Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston both in front of the camera and as producers and bring Steve Carell back to television.
Filming on five of the many shows slated for Apple's long-rumored streaming service have finishing shooting, a report said Sunday.The New York Times revealed what stage the first wave of shows was at.These five are reportedly in the can:Are You Sleeping?, an Octavia Spencer drama.For All Mankind, a space drama from Outlander and Battlestar Galactica producer Ronald D. Moore.An untitled thriller from Sixth Sense director M. Night Shyamalan.
Universal Pictures’ upcoming Battlestar Galactica feature film has found another key crew member.The studio has recruited Jay Basu to rewrite a script from Westworld co-creator and Burn Notice scribe Lisa Joy, bringing the long-gestating project one step closer to the big screen.The movie will be a “reimagining” of Glen A. Larson’s original 1970s television series, The Wrap reports, and not a sequel to or a remake of Ronald D. Moore’s mid-’00s reboot series.Francis Lawrence, the man behind I Am Legend, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, and the Jennifer Lawrence spy thriller Red Sparrow is on tap to direct.Basu’s other credits include Lisbeth Salander’s latest adventure, The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Elizabeth Banks’ upcoming Charlie’s Angels remake, and a Labyrinth spin-off that will continue the story that began in Jim Henson’s 1986 fantasy flick.Universal Pictures has been trying to get a Battlestar Galactica film off of the ground since at least 2011 when director Bryan Singer and writer Jon Orloff announced that they’d be steering the reboot.
Despite underwhelming performance thus far, Apple isn't giving up on its original programming ambitions.According to a report from The New York Times, the tech giant's entertainment plans are slowly but surely taking shape.Apple could reportedly push out a number of original series and films any time between March 2019 and summer of that same year.The process may seem slow, but Apple isn't wasting time building out its projects.Since last fall, the company signed 12 content deals.Nine of those are "straight-to-series" shows, meaning they skip the traditional pilot-episode stage and will immediately become full series.
At the moment, there’s no lack of streaming companies trying to tempt your monthly subscription with original programming.Netflix and Hulu have been at it for a long time now, but the fact that they’ve had plenty of time to establish themselves isn’t stopping others like Apple from trying to break into the scene.Apple has dabbled in original programming up to this point, but according to a new report, it may be ready to make a major push in just a year’s time.So says The New York Times, which claims that Apple may be ready to launch the first of its many in-development original programming projects sometime between March and summer of 2019.According to the paper, Apple has an impressive 12 project in the works, some of them with big names attached.We already know about many of these projects, which includes a series about a morning TV show starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.
Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan will executive produce a new psychological thriller series for Apple.Variety reports that Shyamalan will also direct the first episode of the series, which is being written by Tony Basgallop of 24: Live Another Day and 24: Legacy fame.Shyamalan most recently worked on the film Split and TV series Wayward Pines; his company, Blinding Edge Pictures, will produce the series.The show has a 10-episode order, with each episode lasting half an hour.The news is just the latest in a string of announcements for Apple, which has been investing heavily in new series.The lineup so far includes a TV series from La La Land director Damien Chazelle, a Steven Spielberg anthology series, a space drama from Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore, a drama about a network morning show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, and a futuristic drama from the director of the Hunger Games franchise.
It's worth noting that these are the best Amazon Prime TV shows that can be watched instantly when you have Amazon Prime access.We will keep this list constantly updated – if any paid shows become free that we feel need to be included, they'll go in.The likes of Bryan Cranston, Greg Kinnear and Steve Buscemi pop up in the show and it's been created by Ronald D Moore, of Battlestar Galactica fame.Starring Ricky Whittle (who has made the transition from Hollyoaks to Hollywood with ease) and Ian McShane, the show is both bizarre and brazen, cultish and controversial.This is no surprise - the series has been created by Eric Overmyer, who was part of the alumni that created The Wire.It peels away the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in the '30s to show a time when backstabbing was the norm, fascism was on the rise and everyone had an unbelievable amount of money.
Damien Chazelle, who won last year’s Best Director Oscar for his work on La La Land, will be making a TV show for Apple.The New York Times reports that Chazelle will be writing and directing every episode of the first season, and that the series will be produced by MRC, the studio that’s making House of Cards for Netflix.Nothing else — not the title, the subject or the number of episodes — has been revealed.Chazelle (who also wrote and directed the terrific drama Whiplash) had already signed on last fall to direct the first two episodes of a musical drama called The Eddy for Netflix.If you’re worried that all this streaming work will keep Chazelle away from the big screen, well, his next movie First Man (a biopic starring La La Land‘s Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong) is already scheduled for release on October 12.Apple, meanwhile, has been making big announcements around its plans for original TV series — though usually it doesn’t reveal much more than the talent involved and the general subject matter.
Damien Chazelle, the filmmaker known for award-winning films La La Land and Whiplash, will be making a new TV series for none other than Apple.Variety reports that Chazelle will write and direct every episode of the new drama, with the plot and other details being kept secret for the time being.The currently untitled series will also be executive produced by Jordan Horowitz and Fred Berger — two more La La Land production alums.Chazelle is the latest big name to join Apple’s rapidly growing slate of original content, which includes a Steven Spielberg anthology series, a space drama from Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore, and a drama about a network morning show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.Earlier this month, it announced a futuristic drama from the director of the Hunger Games franchise.The project marks Chazelle’s second recent foray into television.
