Shang-Chi may be casting some super spies. Work’s already begun on Servant’s second season. The 100 spinoff series has been given a slithery subtitle. Plus, what’s to come when The Walking Dead returns, Sue Dearborn arrives on The Flash, and Jason Segel gets inducted into the Elsewhere Society. To me, my spoilers!

Sonic the Hedgehog
Various athletes hype Sonic the Hedgehog in a new TV spot.
During a recent interview with Collider, Ron Howard confirmed he is indeed developing a Willow television series for Disney+ with Warwick Davis attached to star.
We are developing ‘Willow’ for Disney+ And I don’t know about directing or not, but Jon Kasdan is writing, he’s very passionate about it, great job. We don’t have a green light yet, but if it goes, I’ll certainly want to roll up my sleeves and be a part of that, because that would be great, to revisit that world. Warwick will be in it. Warwick is so cool and so good and he’s such a good actor that I really hope we get the chance to see the mature Willow in action.
