Everyone engages with Game of Thrones in their own way, many electing to stay off Twitter altogether, but those braving the timeline would likely notice SNL and Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones with some of the best live-tweets out there. Seth Meyers certainly recognized as much, inviting her to watch Sunday’s “Battle of the Bastards” and offer live-commentary.
CBS Star Trek boss Bryan Fuller assured us that official details of the new All-Access series would likely emerge around Comic-Con 2016, though a few early reports on the show’s nature and setting may not have been accurate. Not only does Fuller downplay suggestions the new series might predate The Next Generation, but also that Star Trek would go the anthology approach from season to season.
Most Game of Thrones viewers could explain the politics of Westeros with more familiarity than their own country, but this week’s historic and controversial Brexit vote might just bridge the gap in an alarming way. Pulling Northern Ireland out of the European Union might have a detrimental effect on the final two Game of Thrones seasons, one of many productions affected by the move.
If Marvel has taught us anything, management of a shared universe between TV and film is a dicey prospect, one even Star Wars struggles to make a two-way street. That seemed to change with news that Forest Whitaker’s Rogue One character would move from animated Clone Wars beginnings to live-action, but what does supervising producer Dave Filoni have to say?
The very existence of FOX’s upcoming 24: Legacy serves as reminder that Jack Bauer’s time has passed, producers even having entertained the thought of killing off their beleaguered hero in 2014 revival Live Another Day. That said, it seems Kiefer Sutherland himself led the charge in killing off Jack, casting serious doubt the actor would ever agree to reprise the role.
Disappointing though it was to learn that Megalyn E.K. couldn’t reprise her Vixen role for Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, there’s nothing wrong with a more old-school interpretation. Enter The Force Awakens star Maisie Richardson-Sellers as our new Vixen, who shares a set of powers with her granddaughter.
The likelihood of Hannibal Season 4 seems to get dimmer with each day removed from that cliff-diving finale, but according to Bryan Fuller, our chances are actually improving. Busy though he, Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy remain, Fuller says the possibility may again open up in late 2017.
The vast prep work and decision-making going into a third and final season of HBO’s The Leftovers made a 2016 premiere doubtful, something the Damon Lindelof Rapture drama now confirms ahead of its Australia move. The series has also added a new mystery guest in Lindsay Duncan, but should we let the mystery be?
Apart from myriad new additions to Season 5, Arrow hasn’t given us the clearest picture of its next chapter, at least in the manner Flash has. That said, Stephen Amell reveals that the Green Arrow will be sporting some new duds in Season 5, as well the appearance of a familiar face and “the most vicious, violent one-er shot in the history of network television.”
