Posting this week’s edition of The Pit a little early because we’ll be taking the weekend off. Come back on Monday for the latest film, TV, comic, and video game news!

  • HBO has renewed True Blood, Entourage, and  Hung for new seasons! I love both True Blood and Entourage and will keep watching for as long as HBO makes them.  True Blood takes the vampire genre much further than I’d ever expect it to go on TV, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Entourage is just pure fun. And while I have not watched Hung yet, I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.
  • Miss Amy Poehler on “Weekend Update”? Than you’ll love this news, the SNL Alum and Parks and Recreation star will be returning to the desk for the first two episodes of Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update Thursday.  It is great that she isn’t straying too far from SNL, and she is the perfect co-anchor for Seth Meyers.
  • Okay, this is my last bit of TV news, I promise.  FX Network has signed Donal Logue for Shawn Ryan (The Shield)’s new series Terriers.  Logue is the perfect fit Hank, an ex-cop with maturity issues who partners with his best friend to open a P.I. business. Together they try to solve crimes while avoiding danger and responsibility.
  • Well, I did not see this coming, but I’m in no way against it! Variety is reporting that Ridley Scott will now be directing Fox’s Alien prequel. Earlier reports stated that Scott wanted Carl Erik Rinsch, a music video director, to helm the project but Fox wanted him to do it. Could it be that Fox finally did something that the fans agree with?
  • Week 4 of Superman from Wednesday Comics has been posted by USA Today.
  • Glenn McQuid’s I Sell the Dead is being adapted into a comic from Image. The first issue hits stands on October 7th. In case you missed the film, you can check out the trailer here. Dead is a period horror flick that revolves around two grave robbers.

I love waking up to good news! This morning, Variety reported that Vinny Chase and the boys of “Entourage” will be back for a sixth season on HBO.

The series, which is currently airing its fifth season, follows the fictional Chase (portrayed by Adrian Grenier) as he navigates the highs and lows of being an A-List actor in Hollywood. The current season sees him attempting to rebuild his career after producing and starring in a mega flop, “Meddellin”, which cost him his savings, was booed at Cannes, and knocked him out of the spotlight. Along for the journey is Vinny’s best friend and manager, Eric (Kevin Connolly), his agent, Ari Gold (3-time Emmy winner Jeremy Piven), his c-list actor/brother Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillion), and high school pal/driver, Turtle (Jerry Ferrara).

You can catch new episodes every Sunday at 10pm on HBO.

WTF

Fans of the hit HBO Show “Entourage” will get a kick out of this video plea from Johnny Drama to fans of his cult TV series “Viking Quest”.

If you think Johnny is just full of drama and is money hungry, then ignore him and head over to VikingQuestGame.com and take the new game for a test run and find out more about the show’s DVD box set. 🙂
