Nye TV-serier og fornyelser 2016

Jeg skal langtfra påstå at jeg gleder meg til alle nye TV-serier som blir sluppet dette året, men her er allikevel en liste over en del av dem. 


DET BØRSTES FOR EKSEMPEL støv av X-files, hvor Gillian Anderson og David Duchovny igjen spiller Mulder og Scully i uforklarlig scenario. Første episode blir vist på TV3 torsdag 28. januar, og det er i første omgang snakk om seks episoder.

En skulle kanskje tro at det var nok sesonger med Prison Break som startet opp i 2005, men den gang ei. Etter fire sesonger og en film er det snakk om å starte produksjonen i løpet av våren 2016, etter at skuespillerne Dominic Purcell og Wentworth Miller er ferdige med den første sesongen av DC´s Legends of Tomorrow. Premieren er forventet sent 2016, eller på nyåret 2017.

Det forventes også en ny sesong med Twin Peaks som for øyeblikket er utsatt til 2017.

Om en ser på den ufattelige mengden med nye serier, ser en også at det er usedvanlig mange ukjente fjes som skal bære hovedrollene. Ikke alt dette kan gå godt, of course. En nyinnspilling av miniserien Røtter (Roots) er faktisk noe jeg ser frem til da originalserien fra 1977 tåler en nyinnspilling.

Kommende TV-serier



ABC Studios

Blood & Oil

Med: Don Johnson, Chase Crawford. «A young married couple of newcomers looks to cash in on the modern-day oil boom in North Dakota and becomes involved with sly local oil baron, Hap Briggs, and his troubled family».


The Catch

Med: Mireille Enos, Sonya Walger. «Follows a female forensics accountant whose career specialty is exposing fraud for a living».


The FamilyMV5BODY0NTI3MjQxMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzU0ODE4NzE@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_ MV5BOTM5MzQ1MzM4NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTE0ODE4NzE@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_

Med: Joan Allen, Zack Gilford. «A community is rattled when a politician’s son, who was presumed murdered years ago, returns home».


Dr. Ken

Med: John Fox, Ken Yeong. «A frustrated doctor juggles his career, marriage, and family».


The Real O´Neils

Med: Jay A. Ferguson, Noah Galvin. «A family’s bond is strengthened when the youngest son tells his parents that he’s gay».


Uncle Buck


Med: Imam Benson, Aalyrah Caldwell. «An unreliable man-child takes care of his brother’s kids. A TV adaptation of the 1989 comedy».


Blant ABC sine serier har jeg mest tro på The Family og muligens The Catch og Blood & Oil. De andre spår jeg en kjapp død. 




American Gothic MV5BMTg2MDE0MzU3Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjgzODE4NzE@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_

Med: Justin Chatwin og Megan Ketch. Denne er så fersk at det ikke foreligger noe plot enda.


Angel from Hell

Med: Maggie Lawson, Kyle Bornheimer. «Allison isn’t quite sure if her new friend, Amy, is her guardian angel or a crazy person».


Brain Dead

Med: Johnny Ray Gill, Nikki M. James. Denne er så fersk at det ikke foreligger noe plot enda.


Rush Hour

Med: John Fo, Justin Hires. «Based on the action-comedy ‘Rush Hour’ films about an L.A. cop who teams up with a detective from Hong Kong».

Her har jeg mer eller mindre troen på alle fire. Det kan bli for mye mas og beundring mot originalene som ble spilt av Jackie Chan og Chris Tucker i filmen Rush Hour, og et plot som Amy from Hell vil behøve sindig skribleri som ikke blir for ambisiøst eller tullete. Brain Dead og American Gothic er jo ellers to titler som klinger bra til skrekkfilmentusiaster. 



The CW


DC´s Legends of Tomorrow

Med: overnevnte duo fra Prison Break, Victor Garber, Brandon Routh. «Focuses on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, who has to recruit a rag-tag team of heroes and villains to help prevent an apocalypse that could impact not only Earth, but all of time».

Superhelt, schmuperhelt. Noen skal jo se alt som handler om supre helter, og så lenge det er DC Comics, har de vel noenlunde kontrollen. 





MV5BNzk5NjQ5MDI0OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTIwMjQ2NjE@._V1_UY268_CR15,0,182,268_AL_ MV5BMTUwODU5MTI4NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjM4MTgyNzE@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_

Animasjonsserie fra Mark Hentemann som er en av produsentene bak Familien Griffin. «Follow two families living in a Southwest desert town on the United States-Mexico border and how these two families inevitably cross and are bound by friendship and conflict».


Cooper Barreth´s Guide to Surviving Life 

Med: Jack Cutmore-Scott, Megahan Rath. «Cooper Barrett, along with his friends/roommates Barry and Neal, is figuring out his life beyond hedonistic behavior. Cooper is seriously attracted to neighbor Kelly while ignoring advice from his brother Josh and his wife Leslie».


Houdini and Doyle

Med: Stephen Mangan, Michael Weston. Ingen plot tilgjengelig, men denne miniserien på seks episoder handler om Harry Houdini.

Fox hadde flere nye TV-serier i fjor, og de har god peiling på hva de takker ja til, så alle tre kan være bra her. 




Emerald City


Med: Gerald Howell, Adria Arjona. «A modern re-imagining of the stories that lead up to the ‘Wizard of Oz’».



Med: Angelina Capozzoli, Toi´ya Leatherwood. «A look at the professional and personal life of heart transplant surgeon, Alex Panttiere».

Med: Jennifer Lopez, Warren Kole. «The series stars Jennifer Lopez as the main character Harlee Santos, a single-mother NYPD officer, who is forced to work in the FBI’s anti-corruption task force, whilst dealing with her own financial problems».
