All Rise, which followed an idealistic Los Angeles judge (played by Simone Missick) and the cases and personal lives of various courthouse figures, filmed just two seasons, with the second season set to conclude later this month. The Unicorn, which starred Walton Goggins as a recently widowed father trying to re-enter the dating scene, aired its second season finale earlier this year. 

While The Unicorn seemed to be a victim of normal cancellation, All Rise did have some behind-the-scenes turmoil affecting it throughout its run. The series had seen most of the writing staff for the show leave after the first season, due to reported clashes with showrunner Greg Spottiswood regarding the show’s treatment of race and gender. Spottiswood was dismissed as showrunner earlier this year, but the show seemingly wasn’t doing well enough to continue.

According to a report from Deadline, deals are still being finalized, but SEAL Team will reportedly be beginning its fifth season on CBS next fall, where it will air around four episodes on the network before moving to the streaming service. As for Clarice, the second season will reportedly stream exclusively on Paramount+.

The move for this shift to streaming apparently came down to shelf space, as CBS already had picked up three new franchise dramas for next season, as well as the medical drama Good Sam. With the addition of new shows being brought into the mix, CBS likely thought it best for the shows and themselves to migrate some to Paramount+, where they can continue to thrive without having to worry about battling it out in the ratings department.

SEAL Team follows an elite unit of United States Navy SEALs, Bravo Team, a sub-unit of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group. The cast includes Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., A.J Buckley,  and Toni Trucks. Clarice will be based on the best-selling novel The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris and will star Rebecca Breeds as the titular character.

Loki Time Variance Authority

A brand new look at Loki, Marvel Studios’ upcoming series based on Tom Hiddleston’s character, has been released, alongside some more information on just what role the Time Variance Authority will play.

In a new look at the show from Entertainment Weekly, Hiddleston’s Loki can be seen in what looks to be the custody of the Time Variance Authority, and he doesn’t look too pleased. Alongside the image, Loki’s head writer Michael Waldron spoke about the role the group will play in the show. 

“My pitch for the show was kind of a big, crazy, fun time adventure,” Waldron said. “The TVA is just an entirely new world [with] a new cast of characters, and that’s what felt most exciting about the show: building a new corner of the MCU.”

Loki tells the story of the Time Variant Authority, a bureaucratic organization tasked with making sure the flow of time stays safe and secure. After arresting Loki due to his escape from time in Avengers: Endgame, the agent of chaos will need to help the group as they fix various timelines in the universe. 

Golden Globe winner Tom Hiddleston returns as the title character, joined by Sophia Di Martino (YesterdayFlowersInto the Badlands), Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror: San Junipero), Cailey Fleming (The Walking Dead), and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), Sasha Lane (American Honey) and Wunmi Mosaku (Lovecraft Country).

Hades PlayStation 4 Version Revealed by South Korean Rating

hades playstation 4

Hades, the roguelike hack-and-slash from Supergiant Games, has recently received official classification in South Korea. While that means the game will likely see a release in the country, it also gives hope for those looking for a PlayStation 4 version of the critically acclaimed title.

In the official classification, Hades received a rating of being for everyone aged 15 or older due in part to its “realistic or fantasy representation of violence” and its use of “red blood and physical damage.” Most notably, it says the game is rated on PlayStation 4, which is a new platform for the roguelike.

As of yet, Hades hasn’t released on any systems outside of the Nintendo Switch and PC. While Supergiant Games hasn’t spoken much about a release outside of those two systems, the game being officially rated in South Korea for the system suggests that a PlayStation 4 release could be arriving sooner rather than later.

One of the most interesting Disney+ shows in development is Marvel’s What If…?, which is an animated show based on the What If comics that Marvel occasionally puts out. Now we have a better idea of its release month.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the show will release on Disney+ sometime in August. This will give Marvel fans something to check out during the summer months. The animated anthology will reimagine tons of events from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Peggy Carter becoming Captain Britain and Steve Rogers becoming Iron Man, among other stories. The main character in the series will be Uatu the Watcher, who Jeffrey Wright will voice.

Most notably, Marvel’s What If…? will feature Chadwick Boseman, who was able to reprise his role as T’Challa, also known as the Black Panther, for the show. His episode will revolve around T’Challa being abducted by the Reavers that took Peter Quill (Star Lord) in The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Every story in the show will be non-canonical, as the stories will feature some wildly different outcomes from their actual events in the MCU.

The original What if comic book series debuted in 1977 and 200 issues have been published over time. The stories ranged from implausible scenarios to more humored-filled takes. It’s a great way for Marvel to use the streaming service to tell more out-of-the-box stories unachievable through live-action.
