Contemporary crime drama DCI Banks is returning to ITV for a fifth season!

Stars Stephen Tompkinson and Caroline Catz return in a brand new six-part series, based on the books by acclaimed novelist Peter Robinson.  As in previous seasons, the show will once again feature three self-contained stories told over two episodes each. However, in a new twist, a more serial element will also be added, and woven through all six installments. 

Jenna Coleman Becomes Queen in New 'Victoria' Clip

ITV has released another new clip from its upcoming period drama Victoria. 

The eight episode series stars Doctor Who alum Jenna Coleman as the titular monarch, and it charts her early life, from her ascension to the throne in 1837 to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.

The newly released scene features the moment that the young Victoria – or Princess Alexandrina Victoria as she was known then – wakes up to learn that her uncle King William IV has died and she is now queen.

Get Excited: Hugh Laurie Has a New TV Show

Hugh Laurie has exactly been doing nothing since his long-running medical drama House wrapped up back in 2012, recently appearing in such popular series as Veep and The Night Manager. But now he’s got a starring role on television once again – or, rather, on popular streaming service Hulu, which is basically television in this day and age– with new drama Chance.

Yes, Laurie is once again playing a doctor, and starring in a show named after his lead character. But that seems to be where the similarities between House and Chance end, as this appears to be a much darker, more stress-inducing affair.

Get excited, period drama fans: The second season of Indian Summers finally has a US airdate!

It’s official: Season 2 will kick off on PBS stations around the country on September 11 and will continue on Masterpiece on Sunday nights through November 20. Indian Summers will be airing immediately following the highly-anticipated second season of Poldark, so our Sunday nights this Fall are already looking pretty great. 

Filming Wraps on ‘Sherlock’ Season 4

We’re one step closer to new episodes of Sherlock - Season 4 has officially wrapped filming, as of last week.

This news isn’t that surprising – the Sherlock crew basically said during their appearance at San Diego Comic Con that they only had about two weeks of shooting left to go anyway.

Nevertheless, there’s still a sense of excitement about the fact that the production team has been tweeting so much about the end of filming. To be honest, everyone’s probably pretty stoked that we’re this much closer to seeing Season 4.

‘Doctor Thorne’s’ Stefanie Martini Cast as Young Jane Tennison in ‘Prime Suspect’ Sequel

A prequel to popular crime drama Prime Suspect is in the works at ITV, and has already found its young Jane Tennison. Called simply Tennison, this drama follows on the heels of the success of the network’s popular Endeavour series, which tells the story of the early life of the lead character in the popular Inspector Morse series, and has already been greenlit for a fourth season. Prequels are apparently really all the rage these days, it would seem.

ITV has released the first full trailer for its splashy upcoming period drama Victoria, to what is undoubtedly the delight of costume drama fans everywhere.

Doctor Who’s Jenna Coleman stars as the titular queen, in her first major role since departing the TARDIS last year. And if this clip is anything to go by – it seems like it’s probably going to turn out to be a pretty smart career move for her, because Victoria looks great.
