HBO announced that a special episode of “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” will premiere on June 21 at 10 p.m. and will also be available to stream on HBO Max. Based on the book of the same name that published in 2018, “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” first launched as a docuseries in 2020 and explored writer Michelle McNamara’s investigation into the dark world of the violent predator she dubbed “The Golden State Killer.” Directed by Elizabeth Wolff, the new episode will feature McNamara’s own research into the cold case of Kathleen Lombardo, which led to her return to her hometown of Oak Park, Ill. in 2013 to investigate it on the ground, thereby highlighting the inconsistencies she found in the police’s work and the trauma that persists when a crime goes unsolved. “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” is produced by Wolff and Kate Barry with co-producers Erin Barnett, Leah Van Der Werff, Myles Kane and Josh Koury. Liz Garbus, Dan Cogan, McNamara, Patton Oswalt, Lisa Heller, Nancy Abraham and Dave Rath serve as executive producers alongside co-executive producers Paul Hanes and Billy Jensen.


After 15 seasons, there’s still life left in “Supernatural.” The May 25 DVD and Blu-ray releases of both the 15th and final season and “Supernatural: The Complete Series” feature several deleted scenes, never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage and a new gag reel, and Variety exclusively obtained one of the former. In the scene from the final season episode entitled “Our Father, Who Aren’t in Heaven,” Castiel (Misha Collins) needs to persuade Donatello (guest star Keith Szarabajka) to help Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), and he does so by reminding the prophet of how he gets through all quandaries — by asking “What would Mister Rogers do?” Watch the exclusive clip below.


Constance Wu, Bowen Yang and Lord Huron, with support from Allison Ponthier, will be on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
