“Dreams,” “Grace,” “Magicians” Set Premieres

Amazon has set a January 12th premiere date for their new sci-fi anthology series “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams”. Each of the series’ ten episodes is based on one of writer Philip K. Dick’s short stories and are set anywhere from five to 5,000 years in the future.

Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Greg Kinnear, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Maura Tierney, Janelle MonĂ¡e, Richard Madden, Liam Cunningham, Vera Farmiga, Juno Temple, Essie Davis, and Benedict Wong star.

Over on rival Netflix, the Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin-led dramedy “Grace and Frankie” has set a January 19th fourth season premiere date. The season will focus on the difficulties that arise in Grace (Fonda) and Frankie’s (Tomlin) friendship when third wheel Sheree (Lisa Kudrow) enters the picture.

Sticking with Netflix, the streamer has yet to confirm a premiere date for the second season of “Luke Cage,” but cast members have confirmed on social media that the new season run has wrapped production. The first season premiered six months after production wrapped, suggesting a May or June launch next year.

Finally, Syfy has set a Wednesday, January 10th date for the third season premiere of “The Magicians” and released that season’s official trailer.
