Sci-Fi Visionary Alex Garland Details His Discomfort With the Modern Tech Landscape

Alex Garland’s Devs is focused around a very powerful technology company and its secretive development division . While the work being done there might be sci-fi in nature, the overarching lesson to be learned is one that is very much relevant in our world.

The Cast of Alex Garland's Devs Divulge Their Character Motivations

Today, Alex Garland’s move from film into television debuts on the new “FX on Hulu.” Devs’ world is filled with people very clued into tech, science, and all its advances and the show itself sits pretty much right up against our own reality when it comes to the concepts and theories at play in the narrative.

Warcraft's Ben Schnetzer Is Y: The Last Man's New Yorick

Warcraft's Ben Schnetzer Is Y: The Last Man's New Yorick

Alas, poor Yorick, we... Wait, what, we have him? Oh. Oh! Great.

The last we heard about FX’s adaptation of Y: The Last Man , it was short one Yorick, as Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk) had departed the show , leaving a TV show about the last man now with no men at all. Yesterday, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we got the news that Ben Schnetzer (Warcraft) will be taking on the role instead, as

io9 Reviews Reviews and critical analyses of fan-favorite movies, TV shows, comics, books, and more.

Alex Garland has covered a lot of ground in his career—from authoring novels to screenwriting and directing. You might have noticed that he leans toward sci-fi; his directing debut, Ex Machina, dealt with artificial intelligence, and its follow-up, Annihilation , focused on alien life. Devs ,...

FX's Y: The Last Man Has Lost Its Leading Man

Another day, another setback for FX’s Y: The Last Man adaptation .

Collider reported and the Hollywood Reporter confirmed that lead actor Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk)—who’d been cast as Yorick Brown, the titular last man—is parting ways with the production months after shooting the pilot that led to the series being greenlit.

American Horror Story Just Got Renewed All the Way Up to Season 13

American Horror Story Just Got Renewed All the Way Up to Season 13

American Horror Story has had its ups and downs over the years, but Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s campy, gory anthology series still has plenty of life left in it. That energy was on full display in last fall’s wonderfully fun 1984 , and now the show’s getting at least four more seasons to play with.

This new order adds an additional three seasons to the previously-announced season 10, and...

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...Halloween in FX's Spooky New Take on A Christmas Carol
Trailer Frenzy A special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The lyrics for beloved Christmas song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” very clearly affirm that “scary ghost stories” are just as much a part of the holiday season as “mistletoeing.” And if FX’s spin on the oft-adapted Dickens classic wants to lean into its horror elements, we are all...

AHS: 1984's Finale Gave Everyone What They Deserved, Including the Audience

American Horror Story: 198 4 wrapped up its nine-episode season last night with “Final Girl,” which—despite some spectacular moments of bloodshed—pulled the ultimate AHS bait-and-switch and gave its delightfully entertaining slasher story a most unexpected ending.

A happy ending! A tear-jerking, totally sincere, unapologetically happy ending, set to 1988 cheeseball classic “The...

You won’t be able to see FX’s Devs, director Alex Garland’s (Ex Machina, Annihilation ) foray into television until next year. So allow him to explain it to you.

FX brought the cast of Devs —Sonoya Mizuno, Jin Ha, Zach Grenier, Cailee Spaeny, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Karl Glusman—to New York Comic Con earlier this month. Thanks to the panel , we learned a bit about the mysterious plot,...

American Horror Story: 1984 Is Killing It
io9 Reviews Reviews and critical analyses of fan-favorite movies, TV shows, comics, books, and more.

A show as long-running and as thematically varied as American Horror Story isn’t going to please every fan every season (the “timely” Cult was a low point , but last year’s crossover, Apocalypse, was fabulous ). From its very first promos , I had a good feeling about AHS: 1984—and so far the...

Ex Machina's Alex Garland Lifted the Curtain on FX's Devs at NYCC

Director Alex Garland’s (Ex Machina, Annihilation ) latest project is headed to television rather than theaters. Up until now, we didn’t have much to go on in terms of what FX’s Devs was actually about —but thanks to a big coming out panel at New York Comic Con this past weekend, we’re extremely hyped for the sci-fi series.

io9 had the chance to sit down with the cast and executive producers...

Ryan Murphy Shares Official AHS: 1984 Title Sequence, Inspired by a Fan Edit

Sometimes, if you want to do it right, you’ve got to bring in a fan. Ryan Murphy has shared the retro-tastic title sequence for American Horror Story: 1984 , the ninth season in the horror anthology. What’s cool about this latest intro is that it was inspired by a fan video...and the fan himself was brought on to help make the real thing.

Murphy shared the title sequence for American Horror...

Surprise: there’s more Jurassic World on the way, and we don’t just mean the next movie...or the cartoon . And it’s coming real soon, in a manner you probably didn’t expect.

A Maniac Heads to Summer Camp in the Screamingly Great Trailer for American Horror Story: 1984

After a cheeky campaign of teasers designed to evoke 1980s summer-camp slasher movies , we’ve finally got the first official trailer for American Horror Story: 1984, and man does it deliver. The fashions! The hair! The escaped serial killer named “Mr. Jingles”! The campfire tales of massacres! The Jazzercise!

We had a feeling that going totally 1980s might be a genius move for Ryan Murphy’s...
