Modern Family, The Musketeers, Futurama: Tube Talk Q&A

By and Morgan Jeffery
Squeezing telly teasers out of reluctant broadcasters can prove tricky, but us guys at the Tube Talk Q&A have got it down to a fine art - we're the da Vinci of TV scoop and this is our Mona Lisa...

You may admire our work below - there's spoilers, speculation and those all-important UK airdates for your favourite Yank shows!

Any news on season five of Modern Family?

Indeed we do! The diversity-celebrating domestic sitcom will return for its fifth season on Sky 1 in February, with the exact date to be announced shortly. Great news for fans of the Dunphys and Pritchetts!

The new run of Modern Family premiered in the US back in September just after same-sex marriages were made legal in California, and the first episode sees Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) consider tying the knot. But in a relationship between two men, who proposes?

Needless to say, hilarity ensues as the pair try to work this out, plus there's more genius quotes from Ty Burrell's Dunphy patriarch worthy of a spot in 'Phil's-osophy'. Can it be next month already, please?!

Can I be crafty and do two in one? Any ideas about Agents of SHIELD and Community season 5?

You're cheeky, cleggar, but we like you! Afraid there's not much movement on the Marvel front - Agents of SHIELD is still scheduled to return to Channel 4 at some point in March, with first episode back 'The Magical Place' promising to reveal the truth behind Coulson's mysterious resurrection...

Re: Community - we checked in with Sony Entertainment Television, who have the rights to the latest 13-part run in the UK, but they're yet to firm up an airdate. One upside of the delay is that we get to put off saying goodbye to Donald Glover's Troy for a little longer...

Any word on the US comedy Dads finding a UK home?

Actually yes - though they've been awfully quiet about it, ITV2 have acquired the controversial Dads - which has attracted some criticism for incorporating racial humour into its early episodes.

ITV2 are debuting the show on Monday, January 27 at 9.30pm, where it'll form a parental pairing with another new US sitcom, Mum - here's hoping you enjoy Dads more than we did anyway...

Loved BBC One's new show The Musketeers - got any teasers for what's coming up?

You may not be surprised to hear that the swoonsome Aramis (Santiago Cabrera) will be attracting the attention of a few lovely ladies in the weeks to come: "I think it's safe to say that there's a lot of that going on," Cabrera told us. "Episode two is a good one to watch out for!"

It's not all swordplay and saucy shenanigans though. Tom Burke (Athos) promises we'll delve deeper into each character's life as The Musketeers continues: "I think that's really what's at the core of it... so you'll find out more and more about each character as it goes along."

When will Futurama be back?

Futurama.

A Q&A favourite, this one! Futurama is one of the few animated sitcoms that has managed to pretty much maintain its quality throughout its long run (we're looking at you, The Simpsons and Family Guy), yet it's once again been bloody cancelled, so we've got mixed feelings about its return - we're desperate for some new episodes, but we'd rather put off its demise.

Anyway, whatever your feelings about the final season of Futurama, no doubt you'll appreciate an update on when it will air. Sky1 have confirmed that Fry, Leela, Bender et al will be back in March - we're sure you'll agree that's good news, everyone!
