Exciting news for fans of British theater! PBS’s Great Performances will be broadcasting the recent revival production of classic American musical Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton for US audiences this Fall.

Gypsy tells the story of ambitious show business mother Rose, who treks across America with her daughters Baby June and Louise in search of success with their homespun vaudeville act. The show is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of famous burlesque entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee, and features lyrics by the great Stephen Sondheim and music by Jule Styne.

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.

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.
