The third season of The Crown sees a new guard sweep into Downing Street, as Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family struggle to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain.

From cold-war paranoia, through to the jet-set and the space age – the exuberance of the 1960s and the long hangover of the 1970s – Elizabeth and the Royals must adapt to a new, more liberated, but also more turbulent world.

Written by Peter Morgan, The Crown also stars Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O'Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.

Anyone who watched (binged) Dirty John on Netflix will understand why we're fascinated by season two. The show gripped millions of viewers with twists and turns, but HOW can they continue it?

The first season was based on the Wondery Los Angeles Times true crime podcast and series of articles of the same name, featuring the intense love affair between Debra Newell and John Meehan which turns insanely dark faster than you can handle.

A press release from USA Network has divulged that the second season of the hit show will focus on one of the messiest divorces in American history, culminating in a double homicide.

Connie Britton and Eric Bana starred as the interior designer who falls for a con artist who is determined to ruin her life and steal her fortune. Newell quickly discovers that John isn't who he says he is.

Dirty John only has one season on the podcast, so initially it was unknown whether the TV series would even get a second season commissioned.

We now know that season two will focus on a marriage gone horrifically awry, in the tale of convicted murderer Betty Broderick. The show will move from Bravo to USA Network this time around.

Amanda Peet will play Betty, while Christian Slater will play her ill-fated husband, Daniel Broderick.

"The first season of Dirty John was a story of twisted love and coercive control — and both these insidious elements are also present in and integral to the story of Betty Broderick, whom I have wanted to write about since I became a writer," series creator Alexandra Cunningham said in the press release. 

"I can’t wait to see Amanda and Christian bring it to life." Betty Broderick was the wife of Daniel, and she cared for their San Diego-based family while Daniel attends medical school and then law school

Daniel hires then 21-year-old Linda Kolkena as his legal assistant, and Betty becomes totally convinced that Daniel is having an illicit affair. Daniel denied Betty’s allegations, which later proved to be true.

Daniel and Betty's marriage ended soon after, and Daniel and Kolkena married. Betty began acting erratically while the pair underwent divorce proceedings,

According to a 2017 Los Angeles Times article on the Broderick case, Betty spray painted Daniel’s house, drove her car into Daniel’s front door, and left “obscene” messages on his answering machine.

Betty believed that she was Daniel's victim, seeing as Daniel had considerable influence in the law community. Betty was briefly admitted to a mental hospital, neglected to pay support payments and filed a restraining order.

Betty truly felt that Daniel intended to drive her insane in order to easily divorce her. The ex-wife later shot Daniel and Linda in their home on November 5, 1989,

“I bought into a 1950s Leave It to Beaver marriage…and Daniel stole my whole life,” Betty told The Los Angeles Times. “This was a desperate act of self-defense.”

Most of the public saw her as a cold-blooded killer, but others sympathised with the woman whose husband left her for a younger woman after she supported his career for years.

Betty is currently serving her prison sentence for the crimes at the California Institution for Women in Corona, but was denied parole in 2017.

Season 2 of Dirty John is currently filming, with no release date currently known.

The reboot is set to air in 2020, with McCormack tweeting his excitement at the prospect of acting alongside the star;

"First shot with Ms Demi Lovato! #WillandGrace," the 56-year-old actor tweeted.

This will be Demi's first on-screen appearance since the 2016 show From Dusk til Dawn: The Series. Lovato also voiced a character in 2018's animated film Charming.

She is also apparently filming a new comedy for Netflix with Will Ferrell, Eurovision, and is gearing up to release a new album where she will tell her personal truth.

The singer said to her followers in June on her Instagram Story;

“You know what’s great about making an album? You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and finally tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it.”

It'll be the Skyscraper singer's first music release since suffering a near-fatal overdose last year and attending rehabilitation facilities.

The scene now shows Hannah staring at her own reflection in the mirror before cutting to her parents’ reaction in a later scene, without showing the gruesome wrists-slitting bath scene.

"On the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, Chief Medical Officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we’ve decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one," a statement from the show read.

Jamie-Lynn spears is rumoured to be in talks to reprise her role in the Nickelodeon hit show Zoey 101, which was cancelled back in 2008.

The 28-year-old actress will be making her return to acting in Netflix's Sweet Magnolias, but whispers are circulating that she's hoping to make her way back to the hit teen show.

TMZ allege that Spears, who is the younger sister of pop icon Britney, has been talking to TV executives about a potential comeback. The publication say that it's not a "done deal" yet, however.

It's also apparent that if Jamie-Lynn was going to take on the role of Zoey again, there would be some "major changes". 

The iconic character reportedly would be "Zoey with an edge" (lol) and we're fascinated to hear more. The show was cancelled after the Nickelodeon star announced that she was pregnant with her first baby.

Spears welcomed her now 11-year-old daughter Maddie into the world with then-partner Casey Aldridge, but Jamie-Lynn still insists that her pregnancy wasn't the reason for the show's cancellation.

The star also shares one-year-old Ivey Joan with her husband Jamie Watson. The mum-of-two will be making waves on Netflix as Noreen Fitzgibbons on Sweet Magnolias.

Spears hasn't acted since her role on ABC sitcom Miss Guided in 2008. "Mama’s going back to work y’all," Jamie wrote on Twitter.

"Can’t wait for y’all to meet Noreen. I fell in love with this story, and 'm so excited I get to be a part of telling it #SweetMagnolias." The new series is based on the book series by Sherryl Woods.

Netflix announced that; "Spears will play Noreen Fitzgibbons, a young woman who is determined to build a new life for herself after a series of bad choices."

Will she become Zoey as a mum-of-two on the reboot, or will her 11-year-old daughter play Zoey and Spears will play her mum? We have so many questions.

One thing's for sure; She'd better still wear that key around her neck as jewellery. It was the accessory of the noughties thanks to her…

Bodyguard has become the BBC's first series to be nominated for an Outstanding Drama Series Emmy in nearly 50 years, but it's star was snubbed in the Best Actor drama category.

The actor played the role of David Budd, war veteran turned head of security for controversial British Home Secretary Julia Montague, played by Keeley Hawes.

Madden picked up the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Drama Series, beating Ozark‘s Jason Bateman, Stephan James (Homecoming), Pose's iconic Billy Porter and Matthew Rhys (The Americans).

It's fair to say that fans are absolutely livid over the former Game of Thrones actor's snub, and are demanding answers…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @filmin_altyazisi on

Critic Scott Feinberg of the Hollywood Reporter pointed out in a tweet how odd it was to see the show nominated without Madden getting a nod when he was in pretty much every scene.

Madden received great reviews for his recent appearance in Elton John biopic Rocketman, and was even named one of 2019’s 100 Most Influential People by Time magazine…So why the rudeness?

Critic Philiana Ng of Entertainment Tonight agreed with the fans about the shocking omission, using Madden's image as a meme to show her dismay;

Twitter user Katy wrote; "Golden Globe Winner Richard Madden snubbed of an Emmy nomination just doesn’t sit right with me at all.

"He put his heart and soul into making 360 minutes of television & delivered one of the most breathtaking performances I’ve ever seen and then doesn’t even get nominated." DAMN RIGHT.

Some even resorted to using Emmy-nominated Kit Harington to emphasise their sadness;

The star gave his all when it came to his performance as David Budd, who suffers from PTSD from his time serving in the British army in Afghanistan.

The thriller aired in the US on Netflix but was originally produced by ITV-owned producer World Productions for the British public broadcaster.

As well as Bodyguard's Outstanding Drama Series nomination, creator Jed Mercurio also picked up a nomination for Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series for the pilot.

Game of Thrones leads the Emmy Awards nominations, setting a new record with a whopping 32 total nominations.

Brilliant Phoebe Waller-Bridge BBC show Fleabag landed 11 nominations, including a Lead Actress nod for the writer/actress, whose show Killing Eve also received multiple nominations.

Netflix has deleted the controversial suicide scene from season one of 13 Reasons Why, two years after the show originally aired.

In a statement released by the streaming site yesterday, Netflix said; 

“We’ve heard from many young people that 13 Reasons Why encouraged them to start conversations about difficult issues like depression and suicide and get help—often for the first time.“

"As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we’ve been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show," they added.

After consulting with psychologists and doctors, Netflix made the important decision;

"So on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, Chief Medical Officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we’ve decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one.”

The scene instead now depicts actress Katherine Langford, who plays the show's protagonist Hannah, staring at her own reflection in the mirror before cutting to her parents' reaction in a later scene.

There is no longer any depiction of Hannah's suicide. The graphic and undeniably harrowing scene first aired during the season one finale, and showed Langford slicing her wrists with a razor blade before dying in a bathtub of blood. 

The show faced immediate backlash regarding the depiction of suicide, with many activists and health professionals expressing concerns that the scene could contribute to copycat suicides among teenagers.

“It was our hope, in making 13 Reasons Why into a television show, to tell a story that would help young viewers feel seen and heard, and encourage empathy in all who viewed it, much as the bestselling book did before us,” showrunner Brian Yorkey wrote in a statement.

He added; “Our creative intent in portraying the ugly, painful reality of suicide in such graphic detail in season one was to tell the truth about the horror of such an act, and make sure no one would ever wish to emulate it.

"But as we ready to launch season three, we have heard concerns about the scene from Dr. Christine Moutier at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and others, and have agreed with Netflix to re-edit it," Yorkey emphasised.

"No one scene is more important than the life of the show, and its message that we must take better care of each other. We believe this edit will help the show do the most good for the most people while mitigating any risk for especially vulnerable young viewers.”

A number of suicide-related organisations and industry professionals have showed their support for Netflix' move, including; the American Association of Suicidology, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the American School Counselor Association, Stanford’s Dr. Helen Hsu, Mental Health America.

Cedars-Sinai’s Dr. Rebecca Hedrick and The Trevor Project have released a joint statement regarding the news;

“We support the decision to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from 13 Reasons Why. There has been much debate about the series in the medical community."

Image: Instagram/@13reasonswhyedit

They added; "But this positive change will ensure that the show continues to encourage open conversation about mental health and suicide prevention – while also mitigating the risk for the most vulnerable teenage viewers.”

The streaming service originally added a new advisory video in front of the second season episodes, with stars Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Justin Prentice and Alisha Boe explaining to viewers how they can get help if they are negatively affected by the show.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings later defended the show, saying, “It is controversial, but nobody has to watch it.”

The news of the show's choice to edit the suicide scene was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
