Renfield starts filming, and adds one more member to its cast. HBO’s Last of Us series will tweak the chronology of the games slightly. We’re getting at least two seasons of Halo. Plus, what’s next on Riverdale, Batwoman, and Legends of Tomorrow, and a new look at the next Peacemaker. To me, my spoilers!
During a recent interview with Screen Rant, Patrick Wilson revealed Insidious 5 begins filming this spring.
Production has officially begun on Renfield according to Universal Pictures on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Deadline reports that Bess Rous has joined the cast, playing a character named Caitlyn, a “member of a support group for people in toxic relationships.”

We also have a trailer for Sin Eater, a new folk horror film about the Welsh ritual coming to VOD March 15.
The Last of Us
According to Naughty Dog, HBO’s The Last of Us has changed the year of the Cordyceps outbreak from 2013 to 2003, meaning the series will take place in the year 2023 instead of 2033.
