'Luther', 'Supernatural', 'Teen Wolf': Tube Talk Q&A

By
It's Thursday and you're probably psyching yourself up for the Bank Holiday weekend - don't know about you, but with the Great British Weather the way it is, we're planning on staying in and watching some decent telly...

If your social life is every bit as sizzling as ours, then the Tube Talk Q&A is at hand to let you know what's starting when and what's airing where - read on for the latest on Luther, Supernatural, Teen Wolf and more...

When are ITV going to start showing The Americans?

Good news - you've little over a week to wait! Critically acclaimed spy drama The Americans - which has already been renewed for a second season in the US - will debut on ITV on Saturday, June 1 at 10pm.

It's unusual for ITV to give a US import a place on its flagship channel, let alone a primetime Saturday night slot, but we suspect the channel is hoping that The Americans - which stars Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell as two Soviet agents posing as an American married couple - will replicate the success that Channel 4's had with Homeland...

Any news on when Sky Living will show season 8 of Supernatural?

The current skinny is 'July' - though bear in mind that Sky Living also named that date last year for season seven, which ended up debuting in August, so this is by no means definitive.

Two things that are certain though - 1) season eight is Supernatural's strongest run in years, blowing the underwhelming sixth and seventh years out of the water, and 2) Supernatural has got a ninth season in the US, so there'll be plenty more of the Winchesters saving people and hunting things - whenever we get to see it!

What's happening with Teen Wolf? I hear it's been dropped by Sky Living?

Unfortunately, you heard right - though the MTV drama's third season is set to premiere in the US on June 3, Teen Wolf's former UK broadcaster Sky Living has announced that it has "no further commitment to new and future seasons of the show".

No word yet on a new home for Teen Wolf but it's early days and we'd be *very* surprised if the latest episodes didn't end up airing over here eventually - we'll keep you posted!

I know Luther is back this summer but when? An exact date would be nice!

Idris Elba stars in the third series of 'Luther'



While we can't precisely date the return of Idris Elba's moody copper, those chaps over at BAFTA may have just given away a mahoosive clue - their June events calendar reveals that there's a screening of Luther's first episode on June 19...

BBC America has also announced that it'll strip the show's third series across the week from September 3-6, so expect new Luther to land in the UK sometime in July or August...

In the run-up to the third (and final?) series of Luther, we'll have interviews with trusty sidekick Warren Brown (Ripley) and the main man himself, Idris 'Big Driis' Elba, so keep an eye out for those!

When is The Walking Dead back on Channel 5?

If you're a fan of the undead and sweaty British actors doing Yank accents, then good news - The Walking Dead will be making its 'terrestrial' debut on Channel 5 very soon indeed...

Look for season three to kick off in late June and, as ever, stay tuned to Digital Spy for more interviews with the stars - in this instance, Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes) will be telling all about the prison, the Governor and hanging with walkers...
