Anything not related to the MCU that I find interesting

New Mutants added two cast members in Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams

The Gifted released a teaser and has been ordered to series.  I am excited for this.  I’m not sure what Matt Nix has been doing since Burn Notice, but I loved that series.

Marvel and FOX (FXX) are teaming up for a Deadpool animated series geared for adults.  Now that’s an interesting concept!

Gotham has been renewed for its fourth season.

The CW has officially ordered Black Lightning to series.  I assume this will be in the Arrowverse, but I don’t think it’s been confirmed.

SyFy ordered Krypton, the Superman prequel series, to series.  Why do we need a series focusing on Kal-El’s grandfather?

Powerless, however, has been cancelled.

There is a new Hellboy in the works:  it is a reboot with the working title Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, which will star David Harbour.

There is also a new Judge Dredd in the works:  a live-action TV series tentatively titled Judge Dredd: Mega City One.

Were you a fan of Psych?  I was, so I was really excited to hear that they were developing a movie for this Christmas, titled Psych: The Movie, which will reunite the entire original cast!
