Zoe Kravitz stated Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman “has always been super inspiring to me” during a recent appearance at the Television Critics Association.
I think the whole Batman world has always been the most interesting to me.I think Catwoman is an iconic character. I was never into a lot of comic books but that world was always really intriguing to me. Then of course Michelle Pfeiffer, her performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic. I think Catwoman, Selina Kyle represents really strong femininity and I’m excited to dive into that.
According to Damon Gupton on Twitter, “Chief Henderson is not in the plans” for Black Lightning’s fourth season.

During a recent panel at the Television Critics Association, Giancarlo Esposito confirmed that, perhaps unsurprisingly, Moff Gideon will have a larger role in The Mandalorian’s second season.
It’s growing. Yes, I do. I most certainly do.
Deadline reports Siren’s third season premieres Thursday, April 2 at 9 PM on Freeform with a two-hour premiere.
AMC is still considering a third season of The Terror, according to network head Sarah Barnett in a recent interview with Deadline.
I love the concept of historical and horror. Horror is such a brilliant metaphorical way to talk about being human and the jagged emotions we feel, it’s wonderful. So, setting it in such a heightened and particular historical moment that has great stakes, such as internment camps or the northwest passage, is really interesting. I’m curious how we can [continue] that franchise and look at what works. We don’t just want to keep doing the same thing, what would a season three look like.
