‘Agents of Shield’ Renewed for Season 7 by ABC

  • The Wrap
ABC has handed out an early renewal to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” picking up the series for a seventh season, the network announced on Friday.

The news comes months ahead of the drama’s sixth outing, which was pushed to Summer 2019 earlier this year. At the time, it caused some speculation about the aging show’s future, but the network insisted the move did not reflect a lack of confidence in the show or portend an imminent cancellation.

“By putting it in the summer, we feel like we’re going to be able to super-serve the fanbase that loves that show, and hopefully give it an opportunity to continue on longer than it would if it lived in season,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey told reporters earlier this year when the news was first announced, adding that she believed the most recent season to

Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 5 Review – ‘The Book of Blood: Chapter One: Requiem’

Red Stewart reviews the fifth episode of Black Lightning season 2…

A title like ‘The Book of Blood’ evokes images of violence, craziness, and all-out chaos. And considering the state Freeland has been in since the beginning of the show, with gang crimes, metahumans, government sanctions, terrorist threats, and city corruption, it makes sense that crap would hit the fan sometime soon.

Unfortunately, outside of a hard-hitting opening, there isn’t much action in the fifth episode of Black Lightning, with the series instead opting to focus on a purely somber atmosphere. Because the entire story hinges on this opening, I have to spoil it for people: Gambi is allegedly killed following an intense automobile firefight. I say allegedly because, let’s be honest, this isn’t House– main characters don’t stay dead in superhero comics, and they aren’t bound to in most superhero adaptations.

Still, his murder is treated realistically,

Stephen King’s Joyland to Be Adapted as a Freeform TV Series

Joseph Baxter Oct 31, 2018

Freeform is getting its own Stephen King project in the form of a TV adaptation of the author’s 2013 novel, Joyland.

Stephen King projects continue to overrun developmental slates in the entertainment industry, and it doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon. Now, the Kingaissance phenomenon is homing in on a new platform in Disney’s young-adult-aimed cable channel, Freeform, which is ready to welcome a TV adaptation of one the horror master’s more recent literary efforts, Joyland.

Freeform will continue to tout its evolution after its recent rebranding from ABC Family, now set to take the Stephen King plunge with a TV series adapting the author’s 2013 horror novel, Joyland. The novel is a hybrid of a whodunnit murder mystery and a ghost story, following the exploits of a college student named Devin, whose summer job at a North Carolina amusement park leads him

Here’s Why Marvel’s TV Shows Usually Avoid Crossing Over With The Movies

As much as we’ve heard that all the productions that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, be they on the big or small screen, “are all connected,” the truth of the matter is that there are rarely major links between the TV side of things and the movies. In particular, the outcome of Avengers: Infinity War has been all but avoided entirely.

So far, the only McU show that’s referenced Infinity War is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – the final few episodes of season 5 took place concurrently with the Q-ship’s arrival in New York and the Outriders’ attack on Wakanda. However, it appeared to have ended before its fateful final moments. As for the Netflix series, they’ve all been explained away as occurring well before Iw kicks off.

Bella Thorne Says Freeform Called Her ‘Ugly’ While Filming ‘Famous in Love’

Bella Thorne Says Freeform Called Her ‘Ugly’ While Filming ‘Famous in Love’
Former “Famous in Love” star Bella Thorne has accused Freeform executives of calling her “ugly” while she was filming the now-canceled drama.

“One issue is when you have a girl, a young girl who is on your show, you can’t tell her that she’s ugly or she’s fat or she’s this or she’s that because that’s going to make her feel bad,” Thorne said in a Los Angeles Times profile published on Thursday.

When pressed on who made the comments, Thorne replied, “The network … In e-mails, and there was another thing that was in front of everyone on set,” referencing the aforementioned on-set incident.

Freeform declined to comment.

Editors Behind Marvel’s Biggest TV Shows Discuss Insomniac’s ‘Spider-Man’

Editors Behind Marvel’s Biggest TV Shows Discuss Insomniac’s ‘Spider-Man’
Spider-Man has been featured on the silver screen six times in the last sixteen years. That doesn’t include the web-crawlers appearance in “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” or any of his recent animated depictions. It’s safe to say this New Yorker has a deep connection with visual storytelling that has given creators a lot to build off of with each new attempt at telling the hero’s tale.

Even if Spider-Man doesn’t hit every note as well as he could in his latest adventure on PS4, that relationship with cinema has clearly influenced Insomniac’s newest game. The designers took filmmaking philosophies, including things like television point of view changes and show-don’t-tell filmmaking, and weaved the narrative of an experienced superhero into an open world version of New York City. Eliminating a lot of the disconnect between narrative and gameplay that plagues a lot of other open world games.

Marvel's Runaways Season 2 Premiere Date Announced, Synopsis Released, and McU Connection Teased

I thought the first season of Marvel's Runaways was a great and solid season. I like the characters they set up and the direction of the story and I can't wait to see where things end up going in Season 2.

It's been several months since Season 1 ended and now Hulu has finally given Season 2 a premiere date of December 21st, 2018. So we won't have to wait much longer. We also have a new synopsis to share that confirms all the teenage superhero characters will be on the run and they will be doing everything they can to stop Pride.

The Runaways have left their homes (and evil parents) behind and now have to learn to live on their own. As they scavenge for food, search for shelter, and take care of one another, our kids begin to realize that, for better or worse, they’re stuck with each other.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger showrunner talks crossover ambitions

While the official line is that “it’s all connected”, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become increasingly fractured as its spreads out across the small screen with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix shows joined by the likes of Runaways and Cloak & Dagger.

It seems pretty clear by now that the movie side of the McU pays little attention to what’s going on at Marvel Television, although the TV shows do continue to feature a number of mentions and Easter eggs, with Cloak & Dagger including references to Tony Stark, Danny Rand and Misty Knight in its first season.

Speaking to Vulture, Cloak & Dagger showrunner Joe Pokaski has been chatting about his crossover ambitions, as well as discussing how complicated the process is behind-the-scenes:

“The thing I love about Tandy and Tyrone is, in the comic-book world, they show up everywhere,” said Pokaski. “Someone smarter than me

Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.

Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger Season 1 Finale Review – ‘Colony Collapse’

Red Stewart reviews the season one finale of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger

To avoid sounding like a broken record, I’m going to pitch you guys a hypothetical scenario: let’s say you are creating a long-term television show adapted from an existing property, be it a book or a comic or a play. Let’s say the the main protagonists of this preexisting property are well-known to a decent number of people or that, even if they aren’t well-known, it is at least obvious enough to regular audiences that said characters are in it for the long-run.

My question is this: given all this information, would you, as a writer of the very first season of this series, hammer into viewers a recurring idea that one of the main characters has to die in the finale? I imagine the vast majority of you wouldn’t, because one,
