News You May Have Missed…

TCAs have led to some renewals and some changes:

  • The Gifted (FOX)
  •  The Walking Dead (AMC) – With news that Scott Gimple has moved up to oversee all of the Walking Dead franchise and that means the cornerstone of the franchise will be getting a new show runner, Angela Kang.
  • Stan Against Evil (IFC)
  • The Orville (FOX)
  • Marvel’s Runaways (Hulu)

We also received some disheartening news from the world of HBO. The prequels for the much heralded and beloved Game of Thrones will not see the light of day until possibly 2020. Screen Rant

NBC has decided to shake things up with their latest cop show. David Heyman’s In Between Lives is about a young woman who uses her special gift (talking to the dead) to help a detective and an ex-FBI agent solve crimes. Deadline

We know that Starz’ American Gods has lost Gillian Anderson, but they have also lost their show runners,  Michael Green and Bryan Fuller. At the TCAs, Chris Albrecht stated that they will continue to be involved, but at what capacity…no one is sure. Chalk up all issues to two main factors: 1. Budget and 2. Timing. Fingers-crossed that the second season will be in production sooner than later. Variety

But, Starz did give us some good news. The Continental, which is in the John Wick universe has been picked up by Starz. If you recall from the movies, The Continental is the hotel that John Wick goes to as he seeks refuge or intel and assistance in his revenge plots. So, the show will focus on this safe haven for assassins and give us more details about how this world of assassins works. They did promise that the show will match John Wink in tone and in action. This is a show to keep an eye on. THR
