TV Week In Nerdom 2-11 - Buffy Reboot, Legion ends, Lost Reboot &MORE!


Buffy Reboot
Sara Michelle Gellar told the Wrap that she won’t be making any cameos in the upcoming reboot series. Saying that she hopes people see it but she has “told her story with it.”

FX CEO, John Landgraf, announced that the third season of Legion will be the last. With showrunner Noah Hawley claiming that he had always intended to only run for three seasons. So we will be getting a completed story from him. AND there have been 2 casting announcements for the show’s final season. Stephanie Corneliussen and Harry Lloyd have joined the cast as David’s parents Gabrielle and Professor X.

Y: The Last Man
Landgraf ALSO announced that FX has ordered to series a live action adaptation of the Y: The Last Man. Barry Keoghan (“Dunkirk,” “American Animals”) plays Yorick Brown who, along with his pet monkey Ampersand, are the only surviving males on Earth after everything else with a Y chromosome suddenly dies.
Diane Lane, Imogen Poots and Lashana Lynch co-star and the show will premiere sometime in 2020.

Walking Dead
A Maggie spin off series could be in the works according to what Lauren Cohan told The Hollywood Reporter.

ABC President Karey Burke told the Television Critics Association that she wants to reboot 2 JJ Abrams associated series in Lost and Alias.

The CW has cast their villain, Alice. Rachel Skarsten will be the antagonist who turns out to be Kate Kane’s twin sister (at least in the comics that is). Rachel has been seen in Wynona Earp, Reign, and 2012’s Beauty and the Beast series.

Hulu Marvel
While talking with the Wrap, Hulu Boss Craig Erwich made some pretty interesting statements. There was the obvious talk of the potential for Hulu to pick up the canceled Netflix Marvel shows, but it doesn’t look like Disney is going to be buying out that contract anytime soon. In the meantime, it seems there is a plan for a group of animated series that will include Kevin Smith, Patton Oswalt, and Chelsea Handler on their creative team. The shows are Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, and Tigra & Dazzler. The eventual plan is to bring these shows to a team-up series called the Offenders.
