A thread for TV Show news and discussion, independent of the "what are you watching thread" to allow for people discussing news related to TV shows, as well as TV shows that they might not actually be watching right now.

To start off, in shows that absolutely nobody really needs to see come back, we're likely only week away from an announcement from HBO Max on an Entourage reboot being a reality. The CW is doing a show on the grown up Powerpuff Girls starring Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet and Yana Perrault as the Powerpuff Girls. In other news that might please @BlufPurdi, Alcon Entertainment aren't pulling the plug on The Expanse and are planning to cover all novels.

If anyone actually watches American Gods, that show as well might not be as dead previously presumed.

The 4400, a show nobody really watched, is being rebooted.

Ally McBeal is being rebooted with Calista Flockhart attached.

All this and more news that few people care about can now finally be discussed again in the all new and shiny TV Show Thread on N-O :aww:

Seems a bit weird to me. :lol: Fenn is a man.

Aye, but I can’t recall anything in the books suggesting that gender was important to the character. Might be wrong, like. Could do with reading them again.

Genderbending a character really doesn't make that big of a difference tbh, insane the amount of outrage it's faced :lol:

Glad The Expanse is being kept going, best SciFi around at the moment. Not a fan of the whole reboot thing, if a shows done its done. A live action Powerpuff Girls on CW doesn't bode well.

That's brilliant news on The Expanse. There's no loophole there though, is there, as I notice you've said Alcon aren't pulling it. Does that mean Prime will still host it/push it/ fund it/do whatever it is they did that essentially saved it the first time?

All depends on the final funding. Amazon doesn't own the rights, Alcon does, so they can continue to produce the show and then "sell" the distribution rights to future seasons to either Amazon or other networks and essentially gap-fund the production through that. Means Amazon could still pay for the production in one sense if they continue to distribute, but they won't necessarily spend their own money on producing it - just buying the rights to show it - which in turn means a lower production budget but not the death of the show. However it's not set in stone yet but signs are looking more positive than they did earlier.

Why did they never finish Sneaky Pete off? Seemed set up for a nice final season. 

Streamers rarely have their originals go beyond three seasons as it's not new and shiny and attractive for new subscribers anymore, plus they changed the strategy at Amazon Prime that year to go for more "broadly appealing" shows rather than tight and focused shows.

$465m for one season of Lord of the Rings. Amazon gon ballsy.

$250m of that just for the rights to the material, but even $215m for a single season is insane money.

edit: misread that passage in the article...they’re not including the $250m in that figure. Fucking hell.
