‘Trainspotting’s Kelly Macdonald To Star As AC-12 Adversary In Season Six Of ‘Line Of Duty’
Trainspotting and Broadwalk Empire actress Kelly Macdonald is to play the police officer suspected of corruption in season six of BBC One’s smash-hit crime drama Line Of Duty.

Macdonald will star as Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson, who draws the attention of anti-corruption unit AC-12 for her unconventional conduct during the investigation of an unsolved murder.

Filming on World Productions’ drama, created by Bodyguard’s Jed Mercurio, will begin next year. Martin Compston, Vicky McClure and Adrian Dunbar will reunite as the AC-12 officers investigating Macdonald’s character.

Mercurio said Davidson will “prove the most enigmatic adversary AC-12 have ever faced.” Macdonald joins Stephen Graham, Keeley Hawes and Lennie James, who have played police officers under investigation in previous series of Line Of Duty.

The series five Line Of Duty finale was the most-watched program of the year so far in the UK, with a 28-day figure of 13.7M viewers across TV and online.

'Fear the Walking Dead' Star Looks Toward Hope After That Deadly Finale Cliffhanger

[This story contains spoilers for the season five finale of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead, "End of the Line."]

Morgan Jones (Lennie James) is dead — at least, it looks that way. Official comments from Fear the Walking Dead showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg leave the door wide open for Morgan's continued survival, however improbable, given the bullet wound and the walkers closing in.

Whatever happens to Morgan next, the veteran Walking Dead hero can at least take some comfort knowing there's still new life in the world of the dead. Case in point: Karen David ...

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 16 Review: End of the Line

That's a wrap on the worst season of TV in several years. 

Yes, it was that bad. 

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 16 was a bizarre installment that was all over the place in terms of tone and pace. 

We'll start with that death. 

If it sticks, it will be the best thing the show has done in years. Morgan taking over from Madison as one of the main characters on Fear the Walking Dead is what killed the series. 

It's a shame the writers thought that bringing one of the worst cast members from the main series to take over the spinoff which already had established plots and characters. 

I hope to god you die.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 16

When it comes to the zombie apocalypse, even the heartiest survivors are ultimately expendable. That is, unless they’re endowed with magical plot armor. Such is the case with Fear the Walking Dead, which hasn’t killed off a main character since Madison Clark died last season. Since then, the series has gone an impressive (and implausible) 14 episodes without losing another main character. This isn’t to say that Fear’s mortality rate is low—just the opposite is true. If you’re a minor character like Jimbo or Tom or Logan, you’ve essentially got a target on your back. But all of that changes with the Season 5 finale, “End of the Line.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5: Breaking Down That Shocking Death

David S.E. Zapanta Alec Bojalad Sep 29, 2019

Fear the Walking Dead season 5 showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg on a major sea change for the show.

This Fear the Walking Dead feature contains spoilers.

To paraphrase the Grateful Dead, what a long strange season it’s been for Fear the Walking Dead. Indeed, Season 5 has been a tumultuous one, alternating between serious drama and unintended camp.

Through it all, the one constant has been Morgan’s mission to bring a bit of optimism to the end times. Fans may not have always been on board with the show’s altruistic turn, and yet, it’s admirable how showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg remained committed to a kinder, gentler zombie apocalypse.

We sat down with Chambliss and Goldberg to discuss the aptly named Fear the Walking Dead season 5 finale, “End of the Line.” Major Spoilers coming up, so if you

Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 Release Date, Cast News, and More

John Saavedra Sep 29, 2019

Fear the Walking Dead will return for season 6 in 2020.

Fear the Walking Dead will return for season 6. The news was confirmed by showrunner Ian Goldberg during the show's Sdcc 2019 panel. The news is not a surprise as Fear the Walking Dead is AMC's second most-watched series, averaging over 2 million viewers, according to THR

Fear the Walking Dead has seen its fair amount of change in the past few years after losing original showrunner Dave Erickson, who led the series into some really interesting stories that set it apart from its older sibling. Season 4 saw the arrival of new showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg as well as star Lennie James, reprising his role as Morgan Jones. Morgan's journey to the world of the spinoff series meant some other big cast changes for the series, as it shifted focus from the Clark family, Fear the Walking Dead's original stars,

Fear the Walking Dead Future Confirmed as Series Snags Season 6 Renewal

Fear the Walking Dead is staying put at AMC

The popular spinoff of The Walking Dead has been renewed for a sixth season. The show's cast confirmed the news Friday at San Diego Comic-Con. 

There was never a question over whether the series would be renewed. It remains the network's second highest-rated series behind only The Walking Dead

Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 is currently averaging 2 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating, down sharply vs. last year. 

The show does remain a solid option in delayed viewing, and we need to take into consideration here that AMC has been making this season's episodes available 48 hours earlier for AMC Premiere subscribers. 

But even with the erosion, it is a solid performer, and given that it is a spinoff of one of the most popular series on the air, it will probably go for as long as AMC wants it to.
