Where is "Extrapolations"?

Knowing that filming started over a hear ago, I've been under the working assumption that Apple TV+ will be releasing their anthology series, Extrapolations, sometime in 2022. We're well into the first week of November now, and we've still heard next to nothing about a date. No trailer, so production stills. Should we be starting to think that this might be pushed to 2023?

It's hard to say. There are some limited series that have not really done a ton of promotion, only to release a trailer and announce that it'll premiere in a matter of two or three weeks. The interesting thing to me is that if this production were going to be in consideration for awards, the Golden Globes (which return to NBC after their temporary "cancellation") will air on January 10 of next year. Submissions are already due Monday, with nominations expected to be announced December 12. It's hard to picture Extrapolations getting in under that deadline. 

I'm not sure why info about the show in general has been so stingy. We know very little about any of the characters or real details of the storyline. At least Apple TV+ now has it listed on its website with the tag "coming at a later date." Super specific. 

Here's hoping we get something about this soon. It's been quite a while since we've endured a Meryl project drought of this level.

  1. Yes this Meryl drought has been rather painful for us fans. Every day when I Google her I'm hoping for the announcement of new projects. By the way, I watched The Good House (Sigourney/Kline) recently and I'm glad Meryl wasn't part of it. The characters to me are rather boring and the storyline was bland as well. Just my opinion.

    1. Yeah, The Good House was not great. Not awful, but I feel like with a bigger budget and different director it would've been something better. Michael Cunningham was working on the original script when Meryl was attached way back in 2013.

  2. I saw the article that Meryl is about to announce retirement. Is this true? I hope it is not true­čśó

    3. “As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being an actress just isn't fun anymore,” she might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that she may branch out into other creative fields she is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.

      This seems like total BS. Firstly, I doubt very much that Meryl would say to anyone that acting isn't fun anymore. Secondly, she 'might' have said? For real? Someone is posting an article about what she 'might' have said from a source who prefers to remain anonymous.

      I don't know if Meryl is planning to retire. But there is nothing about the above article that leads me to believe it will be anytime soon.

    4. Oh, it also looks like the article was updated today and flagged as "this story seems to be false."

    5. Oh, thank god it was a fake news. I'd love to see Meryl playing many great roles in 2020's era. Perhaps another Oscar? haha
