The Final Girl Support Group
Deadline reports Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain are developing a TV series based on Grady Hendrix’s yet-to-be-published novel, The Final Girl Support Group, for Annapurna Pictures. Described as “both an homage to and subversion of iconic slasher films, The Final Girl Support Group, is billed as a fresh new take on the beloved horror sub-genre, while also capturing the cultural zeitgeist around true crime stories.”
The Venture Bros.
HBO Max head Andy Forssell took to Twitter to state he’s currently “working on” a potential Venture Bros. series finale, though “nothing” is “imminent.”
The Venture Bros fans are passionate, but incredibly civil. I've received tons of emails, all of which are short very well written notes, oozing with politeness. Class fans. Nothing imminent, but know that we're working on it.#SaveTheVentureBros

The Walking Dead/Negan: The Series
According to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, “no doors are closed” regarding a potential Negan spinoff series.
We shall see. I’d like to think no doors are closed. A great character with many stories to tell. But again, much still to do here on twd! Many episodes still to shoot. Right now I’m just excited about that!
