Apart from the gargantuan task of reassembling the stars of Wet Hot American Summer for Netflix’s First Day of Camp, we have to wonder if the new series could recapture that same chemistry. Wonder no more, as Elizabeth Banks headlines the first official clip of our return to Camp Firewood, and things are getting Wet Hot, and perhaps American already. Also, Summer.

Bathed in shadows and noir lighting, Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil set itself apart from the rest of the MCU with a distinct visual palette, one the Man Without Fear looks to continue in protecting Hell’s Kitchen for a second season.

Arrested Development executive producer Brian Grazer seems to be the only one beating the drum on a fifth season these days, first promising a whopping 17 new episodes, then claiming production would begin in early 2016.

It’s a wonder Showtime’s Happyish (previously Trending Down) made it through a first season at all, following the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman and subsequent retooling with Steve Coogan in the lead, but now that persistence seems to have worn off. Showtime has officially canceled Happyish, and we’re only sort of sad-ish about it.
