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.
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.
Paramount has understandably kept Star Trek focus on the new movie, but we may not wait long for the first major details of Bryan Fuller’s new CBS All-Access series. Not only does the showrunner confirm new details on casting and premise will likely arrive “around Comic-Con,” so too do we know that the series will tell a complete story over 13 episodes.
For all the amazing cast announcements descending from Starz’s American Gods, the Bryan Fuller series has lacked in one major front: photos! Now, feast your eyes on first looks at Shadow Moon, Mr. Wednesday and even Mad Sweeney in godly official photos from the 2017 premiere.
At this point, even die-hard Hannibal fans know that it would take some years for any kind of revival, given Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Bryan Fuller’s increasingly complex schedules, though many would presume a condensed film effort would help broaden prospects. Intriguingly, however, Mikkelsen would much prefer Hannibal remain as episodic TV than any kind of one-off movie.
Just when you thought the cast of Bryan Fuller’s American Gods weren’t godlike enough, in comes our first major Hannibal reunion. Gillian Anderson has ascended to American God-hood (again), this time in the role of Media, the mouthpiece for the New Gods of Fullers’ Starz drama.
Star Trek has put most of its energy into hyping the upcoming Beyond over its 2017 return to TV (or streaming, anyway), but that’s no reason to lose excitement. To wit, the CBS streaming series adds another notable name from Trek canon to its ranks, placing Star Trek: Voyager novelist and continuity expert Kirsten Beyer on the staff.
