Severance: That Goat Scene Will Be Explained, Confirms Creator

Published

on

Dan Erickson, creator of the Apple+ series, Severance says that there will be further explanation for the goat scene in season 1, episode 5.

Dan Erickson, creator of the Apple+ series Severance, says that there will be further explanation for the mysterious goat scene in season 1, episode 5. Severance follows Mark (played by Adam Scott), a worker at Lumon Industries who undergoes the “severance” medical procedure which makes his work memories and personal memories completely separate from one another. Due to this procedure, Mark’s “innie,” the version of himself who works at Lumon, becomes increasingly at odds with his state of life. During this time, Mark’s “outie” also attempts to unravel some of Lumon’s well-kept secrets.

The show features an eerie tone throughout and pokes fun at the many absurdities in current office work culture by creating a workplace full of strange rituals and an off-putting religious nature to the company itself. Among this strangeness is the fact that Lumon keeps all of their departments completely separate from the others, making the spread of information as to what Lumon actually does as a company incredibly difficult for the innies. However, in season 1, episode 5, Mark and his fellow co-worker Helly (Britt Lower) go on an expedition to map where the other departments are. On their journey, they find to their surprise, a room full of baby goats and a very distressed goat wrangler (played by Brian Rock).


Screen Rant now reports that Erickson spoke at San Diego Comic-Con about the goat scene that left so many viewers confounded. A fan at SDCC asked Erickson whether there is a significance to the goats in season 1 and whether that significance would be revealed, to which Erickson responded that it would be. As for now, plot details regarding Severance season 2 and specifics about how the goats will come into play in season 2 are being kept under wraps.

Several fan theories across the internet have popped up regarding the purpose of the goats at Lumon, including some thinking that they are being used in cult-like rituals, others thinking that the goats are being used as medical guinea pigs for new severance procedures, and some proposing that the goats are being used for cloning research. The goats in season 1 certainly served the purpose of making Lumon’s overall product even more obscure and added to Mark’s team becoming more intent on gaining transparency in their workplace. Besides this, the baby goats also connect to the beginning of season 1, episode 5 as Mark’s sister, Devon (played by Jen Tullock), gives birth to her first child. Throughout the show, childrearing plays a role not only through Devon but also through learning that Mark and his wife, Gemma (Dichen Lachman), always wanted to have children.


How exactly the baby goats will help reveal the larger question of what Lumon actually does is still unknown, but viewers can be assured that they will get more clarity in season 2 as to the baby goats’ function in the larger picture. Like many of the other mysteries in the show, such as Mark realizing at the end of season 1 episode 9 that Gemma is actually the same person as Ms. Casey, the suspense makes the ultimate reveal or twist that much more satisfying. For now, viewers will have to sit in this anticipation and tune in to Severance season 2 in order to witness why the baby goats at Lumon are important.

‘The Traitors’ Renewed for Season 2 at Peacock

Published

on

Peacock has picked up “The Traitors” for a second season, the streamer announced on Thursday.

The renewal comes just on the heels of the show’s successful premiere. The series follows twenty contestants going head to head in a series of challenges to ultimately win a cash prize. Along the way, they must also figure out which of the three contestants among the group are “the traitors” with a plan to steal the prize from the other contestants coined “the faithful.” The streamer is touting the unscripted competition as its No. 1 original reality series.

“’The Traitors’ is an ambitious, highly addictive and spontaneous format that keeps contestants and viewers on their toes,” said Corie Henson, NBCUniversal’s EVP of entertainment unscripted content. “Alan Cumming is a well-dressed genius, the producers at Studio Lambert are brilliant storytellers and the show is the perfect mix of drama and suspense to keep our Traitors and Faithfuls craving more.”

In addition to the Season 2 announcement, Peacock has set the Season 1 reunion for February 28. Hosted by Bravo’s Andy Cohen, the reunion will bring the debut cast together for the first time since the traitorous finale.

The first season featured an interesting mix of game players and celebrities including Amanda Clark, Andie Thurmond, Anjelica Conti, Arie Luyendyk Jr. (“Bachelor”/”Bachelorette”), Azra Valani, Brandi Glanville (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”), Christian De La Torre, Cirie Fields (“Survivor”), Cody Calafiore (“Big Brother”), Geraldine Moreno, Kate Chastain (“Below Deck”), Kyle Cooke (“Summer House”), Michael Davidson, Quentin Jiles, Rachel Reilly (“Big Brother”), Reza Farahan (“Shahs of Sunset”), Robert “Bam” Nieves, Ryan Lochte, Shelbe Rodriguez, Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick (“Survivor”).

“We hugely enjoyed making the US version of this hit format with NBC and giving Peacock’s audience a highly bingeable murder mystery game full of intrigue and dramatic twists,” said Stephen Lambert, CEO of Studio Lambert. “This is the game which shows how people judge each other, often leaping to false conclusions, in a way that’s revealing and entertaining, and we’re excited to be making a second season with Alan as together we build on the success of the first.”

Stephen Lambert, Mike Cotton, Toni Ireland, Sam Rees-Jones, Tim Harcourt, and Jack Burgess serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Studio Lambert.

Cobra Kai’s Post-Season 6 Future Explained By Sony Executive

Published

on

The president of Sony Pictures Television Studios gives an update on Cobra Kai after season 6, clarifying its connection to the upcoming movie.


The president of Sony Pictures Television Studios gives an update on what’s next for Cobra Kai after season 6. It was recently announced that Netflix’s dojo drama series would come to a close after its upcoming sixth installment, ensuring that the popular Karate Kid continuation would end on its own terms and get a chance to provide a sense of finality to its long-running stories. This was speculated to be the case even before the news was officially announced, as Netflix unusually took its time to confirm the renewal and the cast had been hinting that the finish line was in sight.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

In an interview with Deadline, Katherine Pope — the president of Sony Pictures Television Studios, which is behind Cobra Kai — was asked about what’s next for the show. Pope affirmed that the creators were interested in expanding the universe, clarifying the separation between the Netflix series and the upcoming Karate Kid movie. In the response, which is included below, Pope sounds optimistic about what’s next for Cobra Kai:

They have some ideas in terms of expanding Cobra Kai and coming at the Karate Kid legacy in different ways. But yes, the movie is a good example too. It’s all of these. I think we’ve all learned these worlds can exist together and they can feel cohesive and they can feel additive, especially for the fans, and feel like big, big worlds that exist on lots of different levels, they don’t necessarily all exist in the same plane.


What Could A Cobra Kai Spinoff Look Like?

When asked about which of his Cobra Kai castmates would be good to see in a spinoff, Ralph Macchio gave an interesting response. The actor, who plays the lead Daniel LaRusso, makes sure to stress that all his co-stars are capable, explaining that the hypothetical continuation would have more to do with which genre the potential spinoff would belong to. But, as an example, Macchio mentions a potential Hawk and Demetri spinoff, and he’s not the first. Gianni DeCenzo, who plays Demetri, has said he’d be open to continuing his character’s friendship with Hawk (Jacob Bertrand).

DeCenzo talked about how the story could include Demetri and Hawk going off to college in the future, elaborating that the two buddies could essentially take on the role of detectives. Hawk would play the “bad cop,” with Demetri taking the opposite end. While it’s undoubtedly a tongue-in-cheek response, it does get to the truth of how Cobra Kai has thrived based on the strength of its relationships. This was a fact that was also mentioned by Macchio, who said he enjoyed the scenes between Daniel and his daughter Samantha (Mary Mouser).

It’s more likely, though, that a Cobra Kai spinoff would take what has already worked and expand on it. Perhaps there would be tournaments and new feuds in a college setting. Or it could zero in on another character from the movies. Right now, the focus is likely on ending the series on a positive note. But down the line, it does sound like everyone from the creators to the cast and executives want to remain in the world they helped to revive.

Julia Ragnarsson (“Two Sisters,” “Spring Tide”) and Erik Enge (“Tiger”) are the two leading stars of “End of Summer,” a psychological thriller series based Anders de la Motte’s bestselling Swedish novel of the same name. The show has been ordered by Viaplay and is being produced by Harmonica Films with SF Studios and Film i Skåne co-producing.

Jens Jonsson (“Young Wallander”) and Henrik Georgsson (“The Bridge”) are the head writers on the series which shot in Skåne in the southern part of Sweden and will premiere in the fall on Viaplay.

The six-episode series opens on a summer evening in 1984 when a 5-year-old boy vanishes in rural southern Sweden. The police investigation fails to find the truth, leaving behind rumors, suspicion and a grieving family. Twenty years later, the boy’s older sister Vera is leading a group therapy session in Stockholm, when a young man describes a strangely familiar childhood memory of a disappearance. A shaken Vera travels home to her fractured family to uncover, once and for all, what really happened in the summer that never ended.

“This has really been a challenging and fantastic experience,” said Ragnarsson. The actor plays the series’ protagonist, Vera, whom she described as a “complex character.”
