From Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”) and Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”), season two of this thrilling action-adventure series will pick up right where we left off with our heroes. We continue to race throughout history with our beloved team: Rufus (Malcolm Barrett), a scientist; Wyatt (Matt Lanter), a soldier; and Lucy (Abigail Spencer), a history professor, in an attempt to prevent the destruction of our world as we all know it. This season they’ll find an unlikely ally in their quest to ruin Rittenhouse, a deadly organization with plans to change history and reshape reality — even though Lucy’s family has been a part of Rittenhouse for centuries. Still making every effort not to affect the past themselves, they will visit 1692, 1917, 1941, 1981 and more.  We’ll be introduced to the likes of Marie Curie, Hedy Lamarr, William Randolph Hearst and a multitude of other influential people throughout history.

So many little news bites today.

  1. I know that many of you love Jason Momoa, so here is something to keep top of mind in 2018 and 2019. Production will begin on the remake of The Crow.  In The Crow Reborn, Eric, a poetic guitarist, is brought back to life by a crow a year after he and his fiancé are murdered. the script was written by Nick Cave and will be directed by Corin Hardy. Jason Momoa will play Eric Draven. Watch the original if you are intrigued. Great movie. Production will begin in February 2018 and the movie will hopefully be out in 2019. (Movieweb)
  2. If you are a fan of General Hospital, The Originals and Once Upon a Time, you are in luck. Nathan Parson will be playing a charismatic attorney who will be the love interest to someone. Our guess it will be Robin, as they just mentioned that they character has been cast. Nathan played Ethan on General Hospital and he played Jackson on The Originals. NathanParsons
  3. The Orville has been renewed for a second season.
  4. In Good Omens, A tale of the bungling of Armageddon features an angel, a demon, an 11-year-old Antichrist and a doom-saying witch, the character of Williams Shakespeare has been cast. GoodOmensWS
  5. In “I am surprised that this did not happen earlier” news, The Blair Witch Project is being adapted for a tv series. This is all in the infancy stage as the project still does not have a home. Would you watch it? (TV Web)
  6. Mark Strong may end up portraying Doctor Sivana, the archenemy of Shazam! Also, Grace Fulton has been cast as a friend of Batson in the same movie that is slated to be released in 2019. (THR)
  7. Finally, in odd character development. John Diggle of the CW’s Arrow, no longer trusts his team. Which is evident in all of his poor decision making in this current season. Once his wing was clipped, he started to spiral. We can all see that things will not turn out well and it will take a miracle, aka Oliver Queen, to sort out John and whatever mess he gets them in. Do you like this year’s John-centric storyline? (Variety)
  8. Finally, We caught wind (via everyone in Twitter) that the final season of the Originals will focus on the Mikaelsons and some people will return, but no crossovers…barring Klaroline. This makes sense as we are all sure that the team want to send this show off with a lot of HEAs and all the fans happy. (EW)
