We report on a lot of projects when they're first announced. Often, however, there's a long stretch between the initial news and the project's actual release. Sometimes, it's long enough for you to completely forget about them; sometimes, it's long enough that Hollywood probably forgot about them. Let's check in on some projects that haven't heard much from for a while.

Next week finally brings the premiere of Riverdale, a show we've been dying to see more of ever since the pilot was shown at Comic-Con. It will be premiering in Australia on Netflix January 27, the same day as the US. But, in case the trailers did not make this abundantly clear, this is not the Archie you might expect it to be. Here's a rundown of the major players as they are in the comics and how the show has chosen to reinterpret them! (Short answer: Weirdly.)
If there's one thing to look forward to in 2017, it is the beaming explosion of pure, unadulterated joy that will be the Flash/Supergirl musical crossover episode. The CW has revealed new details about the special event, and now we know who'll be lending their pipes to the proceedings — and when to expect it.
Several adaptations of Terry Pratchett's beloved works were announced at a memorial service for the writer last year, including a six-part adaptation of Good Omens, penned by Pratchett's co-author Neil Gaiman. But now we have a time(frame) and a place: It's coming to Amazon Prime and the BBC next year.
Are you not watching The Librarians? It's still the most fun you'll have Wednesday nights, with the latest episode combining zany vampire antics with some truly heartbreaking scenes confronting mortality. We talked to actress Lindy Booth, who plays Cassandra, about everything that happened in one of the show's finest episodes.
American gothic gets a lot of play on TV and film. There's last year's mystery drama American Gothic, the upcoming horror film American Gothic and the 1995 Sam Raimi-produced bug nut wild TV show American Gothic. Southern gothic, the much more fun and fantastical localised form of the gothic genre, gets much less play. Outside of a few Tennessee Williams adaptations and a rogue season of American Horror Story, the Southern gothic genre often feels ignored.
Video: On Tuesday, we learned that Twin Peaks would return May 22 to kick off its 18-episode revival on Stan. Today, we've got our first (very quick) glimpse at Kyle MacLachlan's Agent Cooper, looking far more weathered than last we saw him. Is it the decades... or is it the Black Lodge? Or a bit of both?
The lid is being lifted on Marvel and Netflix's four-way crossover series The Defenders. We have our first look at Sigourney Weaver's villain, and a few intriguing details about what will bring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage together... and it might have something to do with Daredevil season two's hilarious giant hole.
