The CW has enough superheroes for one lifetime, between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, to say nothing of DC outliers like FOX’s Gotham. Well, get ready for another superhero (or villain?) to join the ranks in 2017, as those in the know say there’s another DC TV series on the way

Gotham isn’t exactly making secret of Cameron Monaghan’s smiling return as Jerome Valeska in 2017, but his won’t be the only familiar face back from the dead. Our first synopsis for 2017 premiere “Ghosts” also reveals Paul Reubens back in his role as Oswald Cobblepot’s father, but how?
No one’s exactly sure if FOX’s once-breakout Sleepy Hollow can recapture any magic without the chemistry of lead stars Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison, but at least we’ll get the chance to see for ourselves soon enough. Ichabod Crane heads to Washington in a first trailer for Sleepy Hollow Season 4, picking up a new partner along the way.
If there’s one arrival Gotham fans are more excited for than The Dark Knight himself, it’s the return of Cameron Monaghan’s proto-Joker “Jerome.” 2017 trailers made clear we’d see the character again, but does a new premiere photo from “Smile Like You Mean It” reveal a familiar faceless grin? Might there be a bizarre tie-in with The Dark Knight itself?
It’s anybody’s guess, whether FOX’s Gotham is genuinely meant to blossom into Batman’s beginnings, or weave its own take on the title mythology, but Cameron Monaghan’s Jerome has at least consistently excited fans. We know the proto-Joker’s presence will be felt in 2017's return, but is Monaghan himself teasing full-on Joker makeup on Twitter?
Now that Gotham has officially signed off for 2016 with midseason finale “Beware the Green-Eyed Monster,” it might take a green-haired one to bring fans back in January. So it is, that the first 2017 trailer for Gotham Season 3 teases Cameron Monaghan’s return as the Joker-esque “Jerome.”
Time and time again, fans dismissed the possibility of a Trump presidency as a throwaway Simpsons gag, even during the real-life campaign. Now, The Simpsons itself has a chance to acknowledge one of its strangest prophecies, one it’s none-too-thrilled to have been right on.
The success of Preacher certainly opened TV doors for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, most recently with the Hulu order of Josh Hutcherson series Future Man. Now, Rogen and Goldberg are at it again two-fold, eyeing a sidekick inversion for a new FOX superhero series, and an Illuminati spoof for ABC.
Even after Season 28, no one expected The Simpsons to disband anytime soon, especially with some of TV’s biggest records on the horizon. Now, America’s first animated family will officially cross the threshold with a two-season renewal, outpacing one of TV’s biggest milestones in the process.
It remains to be seen if FOX’s Sleepy Hollow can actually pull of revamping the series without the chemistry of Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, but at least we know when the experiment begins. FOX has officially set Season 4's headless ride for January, along with an Always Sunny star’s next gig and more.
