This Week in TV Trailers: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Friends From College,' 'Nashville' and More
In the era of Peak TV, there's more new television airing each week than ever. To help keep it all straight, every Saturday The Hollywood Reporter will compile a roundup of the week's biggest trailers for new (and returning) series, as well as episodes that should not be missed.
In this week's trailers, Cobie Smulders makes her TV return in the Netflix comedy Friends From College, Nashville teases its midseason return, more Netflix series get sneak peeks (including the Jason Bateman drama Ozark and the dark Will Arnett dark comedy Flaked), and Prison Break prepares to say goodbye (again.) Oh, and for those living in a Wi-Fi dead zone, the official season-seven trailer for Game of Thrones is finally here.
Here's a look at this this week's must-see trailers.
Game of Thrones
"The great war is here," according to the official trailer for the HBO fantasy drama's penultimate season. The series returns July 16, but for a deep dive on all the big trailer reveals, click here.
Friends From College
The Nick Stoller comedy, about a group of friends from Harvard facing their 40s, boasts an impressive cast including Cobie Smulders, Keegan-Michael Key, Fred Savage and Nat Faxon. The entire first season premieres July 14.
The country music drama returns for the second half of season five. Following the death of Rayna James (Connie Britton), look for a few new faces in the music city, such as The O.C.'s Rachel Bilson and Empire's Kaitlin Doubleday.
The 1995 John Travolta-Gene Hackman film, based on the Elmore Leonard novel, is the latest movie to make the leap to TV, this time with Bridesmaids breakout Chris O'Dowd and Ray Romano. Hailing from TV veteran Davey Holmes (Shameless, In Treatment), the EPIX series debuts Aug. 13.
The acclaimed OWN series, from Ava DuVernay and Oprah Winfrey, returns for season two with more family drama. Once again, the show boasts an all-female directing team, with DuVernay set to helm the finale of season two, which kicks off June 20.
It's been five years since both Jason Bateman and Laura Linney last graced the small screen, but this dark thriller brings them back as a married couple on the run from a drug lord. The mysterious drama premieres on Netflix on July 21.
Will this Fox revival go the same route as The X-Files and return for a second round of episodes? Only time will tell, and the final episode of the nine-episode event. The finale airs Tuesday, May 30, at 9 p.m. on Fox.
Bateman isn't the only member of the Bluth family back on Netflix. Will Arnett returns for season two of his dark, semi-autobiographical Venice-set comedy, which premieres June 2.
