There have been so many seeds of new entertainment planted for Apple and Apple TV+ over the last year or so, it's good to finally see them bearing fruit. For instance, one of the various bilingual series coming to the video streaming service now has a premiere date. That's after we first heard about it back in December of last year.
Back in February of last year, Apple officially announced it had secured the streaming rights to a futuristic drama starring Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and directed by Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer). It was described as a "genre-bending drama" at the time, but, unfortunately, there wasn't much else to go on. Certainly not a release date. But that's changing today.
We learned back in June of this year that the second season of the hit drama series The Morning Show would make its premiere on Apple TV+ on September 17, 2021. It wasn't until August that we got our first look at what's coming next for everyone involved with the first official trailer. And now, a new featurette shows us who's new amongst the cast.
Back in June of last year, we heard that Julianne Moore (Lisey's Story) had joined the cast of a film called Sharper, a co-production from Apple Original Films and A24. It's been relatively quiet on that front ever since, aside from casting news in August of this year. And now it's more of the same before production on the film officially starts.
Swagger, the basketball drama series based on the life of NBA superstar Kevin Durant, has been in the works for several years now. It even saw a major change in the lead role at one point. But now the series is actually going to premiere on Apple. TV+, with a set date and everything.
Apple has acquired the popular children puppet series “Yo Gabba Gabba!” and is making new episodes as the iPhone maker continues to build out its library of Apple TV kids' content.
There are some who believe Apple TV+ is just a service that exists to get people to sign up for other Apple products, or get Apple hardware. Basically, a service that simply only exists to get people in the Apple-branded seats. But it turns out Apple has bigger plans than that.
HBO Max is coming to six European markets on October 26 sans Germany and the UK, with the list of HBO Max countries expanding in 2022 to accommodate an additional 14 new nations.
Apple TV+ has a bit of a different timing slate than some other streaming services, and definitely different than traditional TV. But even Apple wants to make sure it has something new for the fall season. In this case, it looks like a trio of kid- and family-friendly shows will help spice things up.
One of the things Apple TV+ needs is a library of content, which will help keep people subscribed to the service when they run out of new Ted Lasso episodes to watch. Which is why, normally, you won't see any of the films or TV series get a physical release. But it looks like On the Rocks, which stars Rashida Jones and Bill Murray, is going that route anyway.
Dickinson may not garner as much attention as, say, Ted Lasso, but the series has proven itself as one of the best for Apple's video streaming service, Apple TV+. But for fans of the show, today may bring a little bit of a good news, bad news situation. The series officially has an end date -- and it's soon.
For fans of James Bond, especially the character as played by Daniel Craig, then the good news is that the latest feature film installment is still scheduled to release in theaters later this year after a lengthy delay. And it turns out Apple wants to get in on the fun, too. The company has partnered up with MGM to bring a retrospective, looking back at Craig's stint as the titular spy, exclusively to the Apple TV app.
