People Magazine Investigates Returns for Season 2

A suspected serial killer still at-large, a toddler who disappeared in the woods and a Connecticut family held hostage in their home: These will be three of the 12 cases spotlighted when People Magazine Investigates returns next month for its second season, on Investigation Discovery.

The breakout hit show, which draws from the original reporting of PEOPLE’s award-winning true crime team, will premiere season 2 on Nov. 6 at 10 p.m. ET.

Among the cases that will be featured in the 12-episode season is an in-depth look at the hunt for the “Golden State Killer” — also known as the “The East Area Rapist” and “The Original Nightstalker” — who is suspected of killing 12 people and sexually assaulting dozens of others in California in the ’70s and ’80s.

Other episodes will focus on 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz, who

Mindhunter, season 1 review: so much more than your average serial killer drama

Serial killers have never been out of fashion but from The Fall to Hannibal via season one of True Detective and bonkers BBC thriller Rellik television has lately done an especially roaring trade in manic murderers. Every modern example of the genre carries in its bloodstream the DNA of Se7en and Zodiac, David Fincher’s poised and masterful contributions to the canon. Adapted from the writings of a pioneering FBI serial killer profiler, Mindhunter, Fincher’s new Netflix collaboration would, it was generally assumed, see the director going back to the bloody well a third time. He is, after all, the laureate of the gruesome cutaway, a peerless conjurer of claustrophobic dread. 

But Mindhunter – Fincher is executive producer and directed four episodes –  quickly reveals itself to be something else entirely. The 10-part first season – a further four are reportedly planned – is a trenchant argument against the cult

“Criminal Minds” season 13 is set to premiere on September 27 with an episode titled “Wheels Up.” What excites fans even more for the new season is the news that the psychotic cannibalistic killer Floyd Feylinn Ferell will be back to haunt the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) once again.

Actor Jamie Kennedy will reprise the character that was first seen in the third season of “Criminal Minds” reports TV Guide. He crossed paths with the BAU after a woman he killed was found stuffed with the fingers from his other victims, who all happened to be prostitutes.

Floyd next abducted another woman which prompted the BAU to organize a search

5 more ideas for ‘Kevin Can Wait’ season 2 by me, a very smart TV executive who gets it

CBS announced in early August that Erinn Hayes’ character Donna in Kevin Can Wait would be DEAD when the show returns in season 2. The move, defended as being “right and fair” by an executive producer, is a means for the show to integrate Kevin James’ King of Queens costar Leah Remini into the cast. Mashable is proud to have another CBS executive’s take on the situation.

Hello, I am an executive at CBS and I’ll just come out and say it: killing Kevin’s wife in the lighthearted comedy show Kevin Can Wait and replacing her with Leah Remini was literally our only option.

If you can’t see that, I don’t know what to tell you. Yes, our family sitcom was the number one new comedy on television, but the writing was on the wall: if we did not canonically murder one of the

TV Guy: ‘Episodes’ enters its final season – Times Herald

Good news! “Episodes” (10 p.m. Sunday, Showtime, TV-MA) is back. Bad news! It’s not for long. The comedy enters its fifth and final seven-episode season.

Normally, I’m a bit dubious about a TV show set in the TV industry, a show about TV writers written by two TV writers (David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik) and starring a sitcom star (Matt LeBlanc, “Friends”) playing a sitcom star, namely himself!

But “Episodes” is smart and wickedly funny and, along with “Veep” and “Silicon Valley,” one of my favorite half-hour sitcoms of the past several years.

The series stars Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan as Beverly and Sean, successful British TV writers lured to Hollywood. They provide a sly voice of sanity in the midst of Tinseltown excess and delusion, personified by LeBlanc as an exaggerated version of himself, a TV star without boundaries or any shame.

Electric chair: Murder on the Space Coast, season 2, episode 12

News columnist John A. Torres has spent the last year investigating a series of wrongful convictions that took place in Brevard County over a period of three years in the 1980s for the podcast ‘Murder on the Space Coast.’. The investigation looked into the similarities between the prosecution of four men sent to prison for heinous crimes. Two of the men were later exonerated; a third was found not guilty in a retrial. The fourth still sits in prison.  What do the cases have in common? The involvement of one particular prosecutor, testimony from a now-discredited dog handler; and jailhouse snitches claiming the accused confessed.

John F. Kennedy could give off serious serial-killer vibes in Season 2 of ‘The Crown’

Michael C. Hall is getting a royal makeover, by way of Camelot.

The Dexter actor has been cast as President John F. Kennedy for Season 2 of Netflix’s award-winning series The Crown. He joins the list of nearly a dozen actors who have played JFK in movies and TV, including Martin Sheen, Patrick Dempsey, Bruce Greenwood, Greg Kinnear, James Marsden and Rob Lowe.

He’s certainly the first who once played a serial killer for eight seasons. But hey, we can overlook that.

Jodi Balfour, who starred in Cinemax’s Quarry, will play First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

The 10-episode first season of The Crown followed the behind-the-scenes life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), beginning at age 25 after she marries Prince Philip (Matt Smith
