Sherlock Shares New Christmas Special Photo and Clip

Plus, a Game of Thrones edition of Risk is coming

by | July 9, 2015 | Comments

This week in TV news, San Diego Comic Con revealed early glimpses of the Sherlock Christmas special and Fargo‘s version of Ronald Reagan. Plus, it looks like Twin Peaks is delayed until 2017, and winter is coming to a board game near you this August!


BBC Shares a First Look at the Sherlock Christmas Special


The BBC tweeted the first picture for their upcoming Sherlock Christmas special, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. The photo was posted ahead of Thursday’s Sherlock panel at San Diego Comic Con, and reveals a Victorian style of clothing, in keeping with executive producer Stephen Moffat’s tease back in March that the special would be set in 19th century London. “It’s Victorian,” Moffat revealed.”[Co-creator] Mark Gatiss and me, we wanted to do this, but it had to be a special; it had to be a separate entity on its own. It’s kind of in its own little bubble.” The one-off 90-minute special will debut in England on Dec. 25, but it’s still a mystery as to when we will see it stateside. Watch the first clip here.


The Game of Thrones Version of Risk Is Coming


Revealed this week on Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog, the strategic board game Risk will get the Seven Kingdoms treatment in a special Game of Thrones edition coming this August. Created by USAopoly (which also released a GoT version of Monopoly earlier this year), Risk: Game of Thrones Edition features more than 650 pieces, two custom game boards, armies and player boards for the seven Noble Houses, 28 character cards, and 75 gold dragon coins — all for the suggested retail price of $74.95. Now, you just have to figure out how to play Risk.


The Twin Peaks Reboot Is Delayed Until 2017


After getting fans’ hopes up for a 2016 premiere of Twin Peaks, Showtime will not likely air the reboot until 2017. Series co-creator Mark Frost revealed this tidbit of information while visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in June (though the news only just surfaced this week). “The challenge for us is to try and come back and raise the bar above what we did the last time,” Frost said. “We’re coming back with season three of Twin Peaks after a 25-year absence. We’ve finished the scripts, we start production in September, and that will be coming out on Showtime sometime in 2017.” The road to Twin Peaks — Showtime’s follow-up to ABC’s two seasons of the bizarre ’90s cult detective drama — has been a twisty one, with director David Lynch having quit and rejoined the project in April. Season three was originally expected to premiere on Showtime in early 2016.


FX Reveals Bruce Campbell as Ronald Reagan


In January, FX shared that Ronald Reagan would figure as a character in the upcoming second season of its acclaimed series Fargo; then in March, the network announced that Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) would be playing Reagan as he rolls through Minnesota on the 1979 campaign trail. Now, a new marketing stunt at San Diego Comic Con Thursday shows just how Campbell, who is attending the Con to promote Ash vs. Evil Dead, will look as the Gipper — in the form of a campaign button. According to Entertainment Weekly, Reagan, while on a whistle-stop campaign tour, will hire state cop Lou Solverson (played in season two by Patrick Wilson, and previously by Keith Carradine in season one) to protect him. Season two of Fargo will also star Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, and Ted Danson and airs this fall on FX.
