Renewals/Cancellations: I was not surprised by the following bit of news. The Shannara Chronicles was cancelled. The chances of the show being picked up by another station is slim to none, especially since it started on MTV, jumped to Spike and was not going to air on the new Paramount network. Syfy
New shows to keep an eye on: J.J. Abrams is shopping around a new sci-fi show, his first since Fringe. The synopsis of the show is as follows: It’s about a family — consisting of a mother who works as a scientist, her husband and their young daughter — who all get into a terrible car crash. After the mother winds up in a coma, her daughter begins digging through her experiments in the basement and winds up being transported to another land amid a world’s battle against a monstrous, oppressive force. Her father then follows her into this new world. THR states that the show may air on either HBO or the new Apple network.
Superhero Movie Update: DC’s Flash movie will be directed by the screen writers of the Spider-Man: Homecoming movie. John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will direct the movie that will star Ezra Miller. THR
