'The Vampire Diaries', 'House', 'Dexter': Tube Talk Q&A

By and Morgan Jeffery
Time for another Tube Talk question and answer session! This week, we bring you exciting scoop on the best in UK drama, plus the latest news on UK air dates for your favourite US shows! Read on...

When is Justified returning to British TV?

As we're sure you're aware, 5USA aired the first two seasons of this quality FX drama, with the second run concluding in July. Unfortunately, as far as we know, 5 hasn't picked up season 3 yet. We're told that the situation may change in future, but it currently doesn't hold the UK broadcast rights.

That's a shame, as early critical reaction suggests that the new season more than lives up to last year's episodes, boasting a terrific new villain in Neal McDonough. Margo Martindale's Mags Bennett was always going to be near-impossible to top, but McDonough's Quarles looks like a real contender!

I'm so pleased Upstairs Downstairs is back this weekend! What's going on in the new series?

Tube Talk has had a sneak peek at the first episode of Upstairs Downstairs and we can confirm that it's very entertaining stuff indeed. The country's preparing for World War II... which hasn't yet been declared.

We don't want to give too much away, but we can hint that a big secret about Mr Pritchard will be revealed that will divide the staff. Elsewhere, naughty Lady Persie is abroad (and does something that might just cause an upset), there's a new nursery maid... and if you're an animal lover, well, you might want to keep the tissues handy. We'll be quiet now!

Gutted that House has been cancelled - what's going to happen in the final episode?

Details are pretty scant about the House series finale, but here's what we know so far - the last ever episode will air on Fox in the US on May 21. We're about a month behind here in the UK, so we'll likely see Hugh Laurie's medical maverick take his final bow sometime in June or July.

The instalment will be directed and co-written by House creator David Shore and rumours abound that Olivia Wilde (Thirteen) could return. An encore for Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) has also been mooted, but not confirmed...

I love Mini and Franky on Skins - will they make up soon?

Well, we've just watched the next episode of Skins and their friendship is still a bit frosty. But there does seem to be hope - something big is revealed near the beginning of the instalment which could bring the pair back together.

But Mini's not in a good place - expect her mum, Alo, Liv, Alex and the gang in general to be on the receiving end of her sharp tongue this week! The one person getting a relatively easy ride? Meet Mini's dad, Gregory...

I'm really missing The Vampire Diaries! When is it back in the UK?

You're in luck - we've got a date for you! And it's soon - Elena, the Salvatores and the rest of the Mystic Falls gang will be returning to ITV2 on February 28 at 9pm! That's not long to wait, right?

It's a fab episode to return with, too - Jeremy's going off the rails (leading to a drastic decision), Tyler's sire bond to Klaus really begins to show, and Elena makes a deal with Klaus. Oh, and the end of the episode? You will SQUEAL.

Massive Eastbound & Down fan - when will Kenny Powers be back on our screens?

Good news! The third season of Eastbound & Down premieres on February 19 on HBO in the US and FX will be airing the new episodes in the UK from March 15 at 10pm!

Will Ferrell and Matthew McConaughey will both return, and Horrible Bosses star Jason Sudeikis will also appear! The only downside? Series star and co-creator Danny McBride confirmed to Digital Spy way back in April 2011 that this will be the last season! *sob*

Is the last season of Dexter EVER going to reach the UK?

Patience! It's just been confirmed that season six of Showtime's serial killer thriller is also coming to the UK courtesy of FX - March 30 at 10pm is the date and time to mark down in your diary, Dexter fans!

Many viewers were divided over the recent season, which features guest turns from Colin Hanks, Mos Def and Edward James Olmos. There's more than one controversial twist in store, not to mention a shocking final episode!
