It’s been another wild week in the world of television, with a bunch of exciting announcements getting us in the mood to settle down and watch some of our old favourites, in preparation for everything to come.

Here are our top five TV news stories of the week that you may have missed!

American Horror Story Season 10 gets its title

A landmark 10th season of American Horror Story is on its way and, following the glimpses of set location, along with pictures of cast and crew in action, showrunner Ryan Murphy has now revealed the title of the upcoming slew of episodes.

American Horror Story: Double Feature will, according to Murphy, tell two stories across the same season, bucking the usual trend of the anthology series which swirls around a central theme. Whilst seasons have crossed over with the narratives told in those we’ve seen go by, this could be a completely different approach altogether.

This season will see the likes of Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Finn Wittrock and Kathy Bates all make their return, along with newcomer (but A-list name), Macaulay Culkin. All will be involved in a story either “by the sea” or “by the sand”.

With a budget bigger than that they’ve ever been given before, Murphy and his fellow crew will be hoping to blow our socks off when the series makes its return to the small screen. We can’t wait!

Emily VanCamp discusses Falcon and Winter Soldier character development

With the arrival of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’s first episode on streaming service Disney+, comes the promotional trail from the stars to tease what audiences should expect as the episodes come to us weekly.

One of those is Emily VanCamp, who’s reprising her role as Sharon Carter.

It's her first time back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since appearing in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.

Chatting with Nylon, VanCamp opened up about her time filming the series, where she says a new side of her character was revealed:

“It’s bananas. It’s like the gift that keeps on giving. These characters are so much fun, and everyone involved is incredible. You feel like you’re a part of this big ol’ family...This time around we get to see another side of her, and that made it even more interesting.”

Of course, whether or not that resonates with the fans is another thing altogether. Reviews of the premiere episode have been great, so there’s a high bar moving forward for the cast and crew to continue knocking this one out of the park.

Back in 2011, filmmaker Louis Theroux created the documentary America's Most Dangerous Pets in which he travelled the country, visiting those who kept usually-wild animals for their own pleasure. One of those people was Joseph Allen Schreibvogel, better known to the world as the Tiger King, Joe Exotic.

Jump forward to 2020. The world has been plunged into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, and we’re all looking for some entertainment. Cue the Netflix original true crime series, Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.

Centred around the life and conviction of Joe Exotic, it became one of the most popular documentaries of all time. You’d be hard-pressed to find somebody with a Netflix subscription who hadn’t seen the show. Theroux is ready to capitalise on that momentum.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Theroux will be making his return to Oklahoma, delving into the case of Joe Exotic, who's new behind bars after being convicted of trying to hire a hit on his rival, Carole Baskin.

Speaking about the new film, Theroux said: “I spent eight or nine days filming at the park back in 2011, over the course of three separate visits. I’d forgotten how much we shot until I went back into the footage during lockdown. It’s extraordinary how much was there. Since then the story just got stranger and bigger, and in going back at the end of last year I uncovered a real-life drama that took me in directions I never could have expected.”

We can’t wait to see what new twists and turns have been uncovered in this tale!

It’s official: the next season of thriller Killing Eve will be its last.

According to Variety, there will only be eight more episodes of the main series, which will make up the show's fourth and final season and air at some point in 2022. AMC Networks and Sid Gentle Films Ltd have however confirmed they're working on potential spinoffs, so that the world created in the three seasons to-date can continue to be explored.

Exactly what ideas are being mulled over remains to be seen, but some are hoping that the earlier lives of both Villanelle and Eve could be thrust into the spotlight. The only problem with that is, they would likely have to cast new actors to take on the role, which may leave a bad taste in the mouths of Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh fans.

Still, we’re sure that if those working on the show continue to inject elements of comedy into the gritty and violent franchise, they’ll be a major success.

Amazon’s Lord of The Rings loses Aragorn actor

The Amazon Lord of the Rings original series is well underway, with Amazon Studios announced masses of cast members that will be starring. Despite being revealed as part of the roster, actor Tom Budge has now said he's left the project in a post on Instagram.

Budge says that "after recently seeing the first episodes shot over the last year Amazon has decided to go in another direction with the character I was portraying". Exactly which direction that was remains to be seen, as he didn't open up about why this was such a pivotal moment in his decision not to continue on in the role.
