So it seems like April is becoming quite the month for premieres, whether it be season or series. Here’s what I’m looking forward to this month!
LIP SYNC BATTLE [Spike TV] (Apr. 2nd)
The popular segment featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is now a TV show! LL Cool J hosts, with Chrissy Teigen as co-host/commentator. Each episode will feature two celebs doing their best lip sync on two songs. As evidenced by the preview above, it’ll feature props, costumes, and so much more shenanigans. In summary, it is going to be SO MUCH FUN!
OUTLANDER, Season 1 Part 2 [Starz] (Apr. 4th)
I wasn’t sure what to make of Outlander when it began late last summer. But with each passing episode, I found myself engrossed in the unfolding story, with Claire being stuck in the past, trying to find a way back to her husband, and yet all the while developing relationships in 1743. It’s been a brutal 6 months, but I can’t wait to see what happens next.
SALEM Season 2 [WGN America] (Apr. 5th)
It’s a bat-shit crazy show and I love it. Witchcraft, dark magic, possession, and a whole lot of other things that I didn’t think I’d like, and it all works somehow. Season 2 will be a full on witch war, as Lucy Lawless joins the cast!
DAREDEVIL [Netflix] (Apr. 10th)
I don’t know much about Matt Murdock/Daredevil beyond that terrible Ben Affleck movie (but hey, it brought together Ben & Jennifer Garner, so it’s something!), which is a lot more than I can say for pretty much any comic book entity. I am very much intrigued by this first show to come out of the Marvel/Netflix deal, though again that’s par for the course these days.
ORPHAN BLACK Season 3 [BBC America] (Apr. 18th)
It’s Project LEDA vs. Project CASTOR! After the events of the season 2 finale, we were left with the fact that there was a pack of male clones that exists. This season will delve further into that development, with Ari Millen taking on the four male clones that we know of at this point, and how our sestrahood must deal with these unexpected forces. SO excited to spend more time with Clone Club!!
