Star Trek Beyond took an affirmative step toward LGBTQ representation with word that John Cho’s Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu would be depicted with a husband, though original portrayer George Takei had a surprisingly negative reaction to the nod toward his own sexuality. Now, leading the charge to put Trek back on TV with Star Trek: Discovery, Bryan Fuller weighs in on the “lovely move of inclusivity.”
At long last, Comic-Con 2016 brought word that Bryan Fuller’s CBS All-Access Star Trek series would bear the title Discovery, named for the ship we glimpsed in the brief promo, though reactions to the design proved somewhat mixed. Many noted similarity to Ralph McQuarrie designs for the Enterprise, but according to executive producers, the U.S.S. Discovery may yet change its final look.
CBS has managed to keep their new All-Access Star Trek series with Bryan Fuller under wraps, but the cat’s officially out of the bag at Comic-Con 2016. Get the first details on the new 2017 Star Trek Discovery straight from the 50th anniversary panel in San Diego!
You’ve waited, and we’ve certainly written enough stories without official photos, but American Gods is finally here! Straight from Comic-Con 2016, the first trailer for Bryan Fuller’s Neil Gaiman adaptation has arrived, plus bonus Pushing Daisies reunion with Kristin Chenoweth!
You’ve seen Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday, you’ve seen Mad Sweeney and the Technical Boy. Now, ahead of Starz’s American Gods debut at Comic-Con, sneak a peek at Yetide Badaki as the terrifying love goddess Bilquis, along with an official logo for the Bryan Fuller series, and more to come.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has gone far enough into production for photos and a first trailer to arrive next week, that we wouldn’t necessarily expect any more significant additions to the cast. Not so, apparently, as comedian Dane Cook has apparently snagged a role in the new series, set to bow in 2017. Yes, Dane Cook.
The cast of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is an eclectic one, to say the least, while the first photos of Bryan Fuller’s Starz adaptation offered a taste of this wild, weird and colorful world. If you want to get Technical, take a look at the newest photo ahead of Comic-Con 2016, as Technical Boy gets a (retro) upgrade for 2017.
If ever you thought that Comic-Con 2016 would miss out on the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, Bryan Fuller has your back. The future CBS Trek showrunner will host a starship-sized 50th anniversary panel featuring the likes of William Shatner, Jeri Ryan and members of all Trek, along with likely details of the new series.
You didn’t think we’d make it through Comic-Con 2016 without worshiping Starz’s American Gods, or Ash Vs. Evil Dead, did you? Fear not, for those groovy gods have officially confirmed their panel plans for 2016, while a new photo teases Gillian Anderson as the God-ly Media.
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.
