Sony Reveals Outlander Season 5 Blu-ray & DVD Details!


Just two months after its conclusion, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has revealed the details for the Blu-ray and DVD digital release of the fifth season of its acclaimed period fantasy romantic drama Outlander , which will hit shelves on September 15 alongside a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set! (Via VitalThrills)

The Blu-ray and DVD sets will both feature loads of bonus features including four new “Outlander Untold” scenes that follow the stories of fan-favorite characters, a blooper reel, two behind-the-scenes featurettes, a lyric video and a glimpse of life at home with the Frasers’ cat Adso.

The Blu-ray itself will come with exclusive special features including 15 deleted scenes, writer and producer commentaries and two behind-the-scenes featurettes, “The Heart of the Frasers” exploring Jamie and Claire’s relationship as well as their family bond and “Expanding the World: Sets & Costumes.” The Collector’s Edition will include the fifth season’s soundtrack on CD, a 28-page special digibook and an excerpt from the upcoming ninth novel in the source material franchise, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone .

Season 5 of Outlander finds the Frasers fighting for their family and the home they have forged on Fraser’s Ridge. Jamie must find a way to defend all that he has created in America, and to protect those who look to him for leadership and protection – while hiding his personal relationship with Murtagh Fitzgibbons, the man whom Governor William Tryon has ordered him to hunt down and kill. With her family together at last, Claire Fraser must use her modern medical knowledge and foresight to prevent them from being ripped apart once again. However, while focusing on protecting others, she risks losing sight of what it means to protect herself. Meanwhile, Brianna Fraser and Roger MacKenzie have been reunited, but the spectre of Stephen Bonnet still haunts them. Roger strives to find his place – as well as Jamie’s respect – in this new and dangerous time. The Frasers must come together, navigating the many perils that they foresee – and those they can’t.

The Outlander television series, executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Andy Harries and Jim Kohlberg, is inspired by Gabaldon’s Outlander series that has sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide, with all the books having graced the New York Times best-sellers list. The series has become a worldwide success with audiences, spanning the genres of history, science fiction, romance and adventure in one amazing tale.

Outlander is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Left Bank Pictures, and Story Mining & Supply Co., in association with Sony Pictures Television. The series was recently renewed through its sixth and forthcoming season.

FX Inks Overall Deal with Pamela Adlon & Better Things Renewed!


FX made one of the best decisions in the network’s history when they first helped bring Better Things to life with co-creator, director and star Pamela Adlon and after four highly acclaimed seasons it has officially greenlit a fifth season and inked an overall deal with the Emmy winner at the center of it all, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“ We are truly honored to work with Pamela ,” FX Entertainment president Eric Schrier said in a statement. “ She is one of the most talented artists in the business, which is exemplified through her work as a producer/showrunner, actor, writer and director. The most recent season of Better Things was its best yet and we’re excited about what’s to come in season five, as well as all of the future projects we are working on together. ”

Much like the three seasons that came before it, the fourth season of Better Things continued to receive even higher praise than its predecessors, currently maintaining a 100 percent fresh rating from critics on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes. The first season currently maintains a 95 percent “Certified Fresh” from critics with the second sitting with a 96 percent “Certified Fresh” and the third with a 100 percent “Certified Fresh” rating.

It was previously announced in May that the series had been renewed for a fifth season along with other hit series for FX and FXX including Dave and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia , though Adlon noted in an interview with TVLine that she wasn’t interested in developing a fifth season of the series until after the global pandemic had passed as it would be “ heartbreaking ” should she not be able to bring it to life after. With the renewal now official, the network hopes to bring back the series for its fifth season in 2021.

Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother as well, sometimes heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also – just maybe – squeeze in some private time once in a while.

The show’s first two seasons were produced by produced by Louis C.K.’s production company Pig Newton for FX. However, the network severed all ties with the comedian and Pig Newton in late 2017 after troubling allegations about him surfaced.

All four seasons of Better Things are available to stream now on Hulu!

Live-Action Zatanna Movie Reportedly Moving Forward at Warner Bros.


According to DCEU Mythic, Warner Bros. Picture is reportedly in the process of developing a new live-action DC film which is rumored to be centered around magic-wielding superhero Zatanna Zatara. Despite being one of the main characters in the popular animated film Justice League Dark , the outlet notes that this movie is separate from Bad Robot’s previously announced project about the team. If this new project would be proven true, this will mark Zatanna’s live-action DCEU film debut and first-ever solo outing.

Created by Gardner Fox and Murphy Anderson, Zatanna Zatara made her first appearance in the Hawkman comic books in November 1964. She is the daughter of a famous stage magician named Giovanni Zatara, who have debuted during the Golden Age of Comics. Naturally, Zatanna inherited his father’s magical powers and career as a professional stage magician. Some of her cool powers are the ability to control the elements, telekinesis, telepathy, teleportation, and manipulation of reality.

Even though she hasn’t yet made her live-action film debut, she had first made her live-action appearance in popular DC series Smallville and was portrayed by Serinda Swan. However, DC fans got more familiar with her through her appearances in various animated series such as Batman: The Animated Series , Batman Beyond , Justice League Unlimited , and Young Justice as well as in most recent TV shows DC Super Hero Girls and Harley Quinn .

If the solo Zatanna movie would later be confirmed by Warner Bros., it would officially become a part of the studio’s growing list of ongoing live-action projects including James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad , Matt Reeves’ The Batman , Andy Muschietti’s The Flash , Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam , Ava DuVernay’s New Gods and more.
