IN OTHER NEWS... 08/15/2013

IN OTHER NEWS today... a preview for tomorrow's episode of the excellent Continuum, SyFy snags another new - and highly explicit - show, Dredd sequel news, the BBC reveal their latest post-Merlin telefantasy and more!

The mind-bending awesomeness that is Continuum continues this week with what's promising to be another great episode, if the above trailer is anything to go by. Fans of the show will also be pleased to learn SyFy has picked up its third season, which will be airing in 2014.

Here's the first trailer for upcoming UK TV fantasy comedy, Yonderland. No word yet on when we can expect to see it Stateside but when we know, you'll know.

Dredd II
Sadly this isn't an announcement that the freaking fantastic Dredd is getting a sequel... yet. But maybe it will happen if there's enough support. You can join the fight by signing the official petition, via their Facebook page. We have and so should you.

The BBC is keen to keep audiences entertained in the now-regular Doctor Who Saturday night TV slot. But when the Doctor isn't around, they need an alternative. For a time both Robin Hood and Merlin did a decent enough job keeping telefantasy fans happy but with both shows now finished, it's time for a new series of adventures to take their place. Enter Atlantis...

With a cast that includes Mark ''A Knight's Tale/Game of Thrones'' Addy and Juliette ''Truly, Madly, Deeply'' Stevenson, the show is the brainchild of Misfits/Dirk Gently producer Howard Overmann and is set to air in the UK on November 23rd - the same day as the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. No word yet on when - or if - BBC America will be airing the show.

The Almighty Johnsons
SyFy has acquired the rights to New Zealand comedy-drama telefantasy, The Almighty Johnsons, which tells the story of ''four fun-loving guys who inherited the power of Norse Gods.'' Since its initial home airing in 2011 the show has gained a cult following over the course of its first two seasons but it will be interesting to see how SyFy will handle the show, given that it features nudity, sexual scenes, profanity and all that other good stuff, as you can see in this absolutely NSFW trailer...
The show - which has already aired in its native New Zealand, Canada and the UK - will air on SyFy next year.
