Dear White People Sets Season 3 Premiere Date, Stages Grits Debate
Dear White People will go back to school on Friday, Aug. 2, when Netflix releases Season 3 (sorry, Volume 3) of the satirical series.

In conjunction with the Juneteenth announcement, the streamer released a video (above) in which the cast engages in a “sweet vs. salty” grits debate. And that frankly made me lamenting how sad this morning’s whole wheat bagel breakfast was.

Having picked up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off, Dear White People chronicles the socially conscious campus activities at the fictional Winchester College, led by radio host Samantha White (Logan Browning) and her controversial “Dear White People” rants.

Julie Andrews is the first person officially cast in one of Shonda Rhimes’ upcoming Netflix shows.

Andrews has joined the untitled series based on Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton family novels. She will voice the character Lady Whistledown.

Andrews is a legend of stage and screen, perhaps best known for her roles in films like “The Sound of Music” and “Mary Poppins,” both of which earned her Academy Award nominations. She is also known for roles in films like “Victor/Victoria,” “The Princess Diaries” and its sequel, as well as the “Despicable Me” and “Minion” franchises.

The Handmaid's Tale's Yvonne Strahovski on Serena's Crushing Regret, That Secret Phone and Why Canada Might Not Be an Option
Warning: This post contains spoilers from Season 3, Episode 5 of The Handmaid’s Tale.

Was she caught aiding June? Did she lose yet another appendage to Gilead’s draconian punitive system? Nope: In this week’s episode, she merely saw her infant daughter for the first time since the child was smuggled to safety, and her resolve to upend Gilead crumbled like a stale croissant.

The Handmaid's Tale Recap: Luke Meets Serena (and Other Catastrophes)

While it’s nowhere near as bad as the time his wife and daughter were ripped from his side and forced into slavery, the latest episode of The Handmaid’s Tale probably isn’t going to go down as one of Luke Bankole’s Best Weeks Ever.

He gets to talk to June for the first time in years, but only for a few minutes. Then he is forced to have a cozy chat with a woman who helped bring about the very dystopia in which June is now ensnared. And then, for the kicker? He gets an unasked-for truth

How Production Designer Marco Niro Created a Visual Climax for FX’s ‘Legion’

FX’s “Legion” has always drawn inspiration not only from the MarvelX-Men” comics on which it is based, but also from the weirder corners of pop culture. When creator Noah Hawley cast “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens as the lead — David Haller, a mutant whose telepathic powers have been misdiagnosed as mental illness — he gave the actor a playlist that included everything from experimental noise music to Pink Floyd. Even more so than Hawley’s “Fargo,” “Legion” has been driven by a visual aesthetic that reflects that range of influences.
