After an exciting first season, “She-Ra and The Princesses of Power” are headed back to Netflix for another season of awesomeoness.
All your favorites are back, and it seems the battle for Etheria rages on. This time, She-Ra has the princesses on her side (minus one who turned heel last season), while Catra grows in her role as a leader within the Horde under Hordak’s watchful gaze.
The trailer doesn’t give us much info to go on, other than action will be abound, and there will be much more if it than there was last time. Now, Adora knows more about her abilities, and Catra has grown more confident as a captain.
The one big thing to notice is from the screenshot above. Catra is indeed wearing Horde armor, and yes, she has She-Ra’s sword which seems to be infected with something that is draining the life from it. That seems like a pretty major thing, so I believe we are in for a heck of ride when the show returns.
Check out the season two trailer below:
Adora is finally beginning to accept her destiny as the legendary warrior princess, She-Ra, and leader of the Princess Rebellion. Still, there is much to learn as the threat of the Horde grows and Catra sinks deeper into the world of evil.
Season 2 of “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” begins streaming on Netflix, April 26th.
April Fool’s is normally a day where websites screw with their viewers and offer all sorts of silly nonsense in lieu of actual news. However, CBS just gave us the greatest gift of all, as they just released the debut episode of the new “Twilight Zone” on their Youtube channel for free.
“The Comedian” stars Kumail Nanjiani, who wants to be a famous comedian. His character meets a famous comedian in a shady bar, played by Tracy Morgan, and his fame starts to rise. But nothing like that truly comes for free, and Kumiail has to pay the price.
Check out the first episode below:
The series is hosted by Jordan Peele, and is available on CBS All Access. Another new episode will be available on that platform as well, “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” starring Adam Scott, and new episodes of the first season resuming weekly starting on April 11.
“I had an amazing experience yesterday. I sat at Patrick’s kitchen table and I heard him read the first episode, and I almost cried,” he told the audience. “It was quite something. He’s at an amazing place in his life. He’s so excited.”
He added “This is going to be a very thoughtful, psychological portrait in a lot of ways. We all know what Picard means to the world and why he, like so many legendary characters on Star Trek, has endured and what he’s represented. He in some way has to go through a gauntlet to find that again. Things have changed for him and changed him in some ways, and yet he is so deeply and fundamentally still Picard.”
Kurtzman also confirmed to IW that “in many ways, [Picard] is slower [than Discovery], it’s more meditative. I think it honors what is best about ‘Next Gen[eration].’”
Beyond the Picard series, other shows are in development including the “Lower Decks” animated comedy series, two more animated “Short Trek” installments, and the highly anticipated Section 31 spinoff starring Michelle Yeoh, reprising her role as Mirror Universe Philippa Georgiou.
Fans of “Star Trek Discovery” have been enjoying the hunt for The Red Angel the past 10 episodes, and we recently learned who that time-traveling character is. With a handful of episodes left until season two comes to a close, the cast of DISCO says to “expect the unexpected”, and that this finale will be a game-changer.
The 2019 PaleyFest in Los Angeles (a major Television industry event) was visited by the cast and creative team of “Star Trek Discovery”. While we did not learn any new info about the series, we did get many of the actors explaining how excited they are for the conclusion of this season.
Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman was quoted by SyFy about the series finale, and discussed the continuity issues that are on many fans minds. “We are entirely aware of everyone’s questions and criticisms; I’ve read everything, and I see where everyone’s like, ‘Well, the spore drive never existed!’ and ‘What, Discovery was never around!’ and all of those things, we’re totally aware. You will get an answer.” He also added that it will be a “satisfying” resolution once it is revealed.
Aside from getting things back into some form of continuity with the classic 60s Trek, there is a plan to make sure the story of Captain Pike, played by Anson Mount this season who will not be returning for the
“We will synch up with canon, and obviously if you know the story of Captain Pike, you know what his fate was. It won’t be exactly what you think this season, but we will be consistent with that story. There will be a dimension shed on that story that you will not have known or have thought of,” said Kurtzman.
Ethan Peck, who has played Spock this season, added, “I personally think that the end of the season is going to be tremendous … when [Kurtzman] first told me about it I was like in tears, I just had chills… so good.”
The entire cast was practically in hype mode, which makes you really wonder just how big this ending actually will be if every single one of them was so taken aback by it.
“I think that the last few episodes will really close the circle for people, “Anthony Rapp (Cmdr. Staments) said. “If we’ve done our job, what was on the page … I haven’t seen them yet, but what was on the page in the scripts, closes the circle; it answers the questions that are lingering and remaining for people of how we fit in.”
“And I believe very strongly that it will leave people satisfied. … As someone who cares about continuity, to some degree, I was like, ‘If this doesn’t make people happy, I don’t know what else we can do.’”
“Expect the unexpected, is what my mother always says, and it couldn’t be more true, especially on this season, cause it’ll change everything,” said Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber).
Doug Jones, everyones favorite Kelpian Commander Saru, said, “As I read the final script for Season 2, my jaw dropped, and I’m dumbfounded with where we’re headed. So I think the fans can expect to boldly go where no Star Trek series has ever gone before.”
Prepare for the unexpected when season two of “Star Trek Discovery” comes to a close in a matter of weeks!
First up is the trailer for “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet” with Adam Scott:
It looks like this time, the monster won’t be on the window. Instead, it seems this is a very paranoid man who is concerned about some other passengers. In this version of this classic episode, it’s not the monsters outside the plane, perhaps it is the monsters on the inside.
Following that episode, we have Kumail Nanjiani and Tracy Morgan in “The Comedian”:
The new Twilight Zone debuts on CBS All Access, hosted by Jordan Peele, starting on April 1.
The big news coming out of Apple today is the announcement of their new streaming video platform to compete with Netflix and Hulu, named Apple TV+. But for us, the real news is the announcement of one of the first programs to join their service – a brand new Sesame Street show all about technology!
Apple CEO Tim Cook announced Apple TV+ and revealed it will be an ad-free subscription service, with everything available for online and offline viewing, in over 100 countries. Among the shows announced is the return of “Amazing Stores” with Steven Speilberg at the helm, an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s classic “Foundation” books and “The Morning Show,” a drama set in the morning TV industry starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
For us, the most curious program to be announced was the contribution from “Sesame Street”, which is a new show all about… coding! Yes, pre-schoolers will now learn their ABCs, numbers, HTML, and CSS.
Big Bird was on hand to introduce the new show and its star, a muppet named Cody. “By teaching preschoolers about coding, we’re giving them the opportunity to change the world!” the enthusiastic muppet explained, who also said the show will also include “cool music” and “funky dance moves.” Because if you’re gonna code, you better have sweet dancing skills.
“You’re helping kids grow up to be smarter, stronger, and kinder,” Big Bird added.
No trailer or footage of this new series was shown, but we do know Apple’s parternship with Sesame Street is not just limited to live action, but also includes animated shows as a potential thing.
Apple TV+ arrives this fall, but no pricing info has been announced yet.
“Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera. For us it has been an experience of a lifetime. The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible. We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the send off they deserve.”
Padalecki added on Instagram: “Dear #spnfamily, Season 1 @jensenackles and I want you to know that next season, SEASON 15, will be the last season of #supernatural. I am so incredibly grateful for the family that we’ve all built together. I love y’all and am more appreciative of y’all than my meager vocabulary could hope to describe. I’m also typing through tears. So, please forgive me. ‘Til next time.”
Jensen Ackles added his own message on Instagram, saying, “Well, it’s official. One more round for the Winchester brothers. Though nothing ever really ends in Supernatural…does it?” Perhaps this is a ray of hope that a Supernatural movie could happen, or even something else.
“Supernatural” is the longest-running sci-fi/genre series in the history of American broadcast television, starting in 2005. By the time it wraps, the show will have aired a total of 327 episodes.
Supernatural” was created by Eric Kripke and is executive produced by Robert Singer, Andrew Dabb, Phil Sgriccia, Jeremy Carver, Eugenie Ross-Leming, and Brad Buckner.
It may be an obvious headline, but the way most folks have been writing about the upcoming Captain Picard-centric Star Trek show may lead you to believe that actually is the name of the series. Turns out, it’s not.
According to director Hanelle Culpepper, who will be directing the first two episodes of the new series, responded to a fan on Twitter who asked about the title. “Star Trek: Picard” is merely a placeholder, and the official name has not yet been revealed, or perhaps even decided on.
Meanwhile, Production Weekly released some new info this afternoon which still uses the “Star Trek: Picard” name in lieu of whatever official title the show may have. The site also excluded “Star Trek: Destiny” as a potential title for the series, despite listing it previously. This was one of the rumored titles of the show, and while they may not be listing it at the moment, that doesn’t necessarily mean it is totally out of the running.
The summer of 1985 looks like it will be a rough one for our favorite teens in Hawkins, Indiana, as the latest trailer for the third season of “Stranger Things” just dropped – and it’s strange.
The kids are all growing up, and things are starting to change. It even looks like Eleven has started to adjust to being an average kid (although Mike says they aren’t kids anymore, and that much is true). A lot has happened since season two, and season three looks like it’s going to take the franchise to a new level.
Plus, Steve has a mall job and seems to be besties with Dustin now – here is hoping we get a team-up with those two this season.
Season three of “Stranger Things” premieres on July 4 exclusively on Netflix.
One of the most interested adaptations of a Marvel Comics series will be coming to streaming platforms soon, and it’s an unexpected addition. Marvel Comics’ “What If” series is in the works to join Disney’s digital TV platform, and we could not be more excited about that news!
This scoop came from Slashfilm, who had this info corroborated by three unnamed sources.
The new animated show will be overseen by Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, but the stories will not be canon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just like the original comics.
It’s also not confirmed if the show will use any storylines from the comics for inspiration, except for Issue #47, which explored what would happen if Loki got Mjolnir instead of Thor.
“What If” comics began in 1977 and continue to this day in various forms. While the long-running series has been cancelled for a long time, it has seen resurgences sporadically over the past fifteen years.
Last month it was revealed that Jeph Loeb would be overseeing new Marvel series on the Hulu streaming service, including Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show, Marvel’s Howard the Duck, and a crossover special Marvel’s The Offenders with a list of very talented writers and producers including Kevin Smith, Patton Oswalt, Chelsea Handler, Erica Rivinoja, Dave Willis, and more.
