South Park season 22 premiere date; Mad About You revival unlikely; new Diane Lane series (Quick Hits)
Welcome to another edition of TV Quick Hits! We got a lot of different stories to get to in the latest update today, so let’s kick things off with the South Park season 22 premiere date.
Season 22 of the long-running animated series is coming back on Wednesday, September 26 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time. In news that should not come as much of a surprise to anyone, Comedy Central is for now keeping most details about the show’s future hush-hush. Why do that? Well, it’s probably to keep some things a secret … but at the same time, there’s no guarantee at the moment that anyone out there even knows what the story for the premiere is going to be just yet. The folks over at South Park are pretty notorious when it comes to keeping things under wraps for as long as they possibly can.
If there is anything that can be counted on, it’s that the new episodes coming will likely be random, absurd, and also very much offensive. Basically, they are going to be precisely what you would expect for a series like South Park that has made so much of its bread and butter off of shock-and-awe programming.
As for some other updates…
Don’t count on a Mad About You revival – We know that there’s been talk about it happening for quite some time now, but according to the series’ one-time leading man in Paul Reiser, he is not altogether confident that the project is ever going to come together.
In a new interview with the Tampa Bay Times on the subject of the future, Reiser did his best in order to explain the number of different factors that are helping/hurting the series at the moment, and what is being done behind the scenes in order to ensure that it could come to pass:
“It’s kind of stuck in the business end of it now … Sony is trying to figure out from their end; that’s where I just walk away and go, call me when you figure it out. I don’t know what happens at that level. They make their deals with whoever they make their deals with. So we’ll see if it happens. It may not happen. It likely won’t happen. My guess is it won’t happen.”
We still think that there’s a shot, but this is clearly the sort of thing to take a wait-and-see approach on more so than to express some confidence.
Diane Lane’s new series – Today, FX confirmed that Lane (set to appear in the final season of House of Cards) is going to be a part of the upcoming drama pilot Y: The Last Man. She will be appearing in the pilot alongside Barry Keoghan, Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield and Marin Ireland.

Based on DC Comics’ acclaimed series Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, Y traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal save for one lone human. The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival.
