TV Quick Hits: ‘Girls’ season 5, ‘Togetherness,’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ implications; ‘Jessica Jones’ art
HBO this morning announced what their full roster for premiere dates for early next year, and it includes “Girls” season 5 premiering a little later than usual on Sunday, February 21 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time. Meanwhile, “Togetherness” season 2 will air starting the same night at 10:30, and new series “Vinyl,” from executive producers Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger, will officially start on February 14 with a two-hour premiere. This show stars Bobby Cannavale and Olivia Wilde, and will of course be all about rock ‘n roll.
What we find a just as interesting here are the potential ramifications these days could have on “Game of Thrones” season 6. If there are in fact ten episodes of “Vinyl,” it means that the earliest the George R.R. Martin adaptation could start is Sunday, April 17. It may start even later depending on if HBO wants to launch it alongside “Silicon Valley” and “Veep” as per usual. This would give the latter show in particular time to adjust with a new showrunner.
New “Jessica Jones” art – Moving on, let’s give you a first-look at the new promo art for the Netflix series, this time focusing on David Tennant’s evil character of Kilgrave. This is someone responsible for haunting the title character (played by Krysten Ritter), and you will see the full extent of her suffering at some point fairly early on in the show.
The new series will officially start streaming on November 20.
