Locke & Key Renewed For Season 2 On Netflix

Netflix announced that it has officially renewed Locke & Key, the TV adaptation of the beloved horror/fantasy comic by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, for another season.

Season 1 of Locke & Key hit Netflix in February, telling the story of the titular Locke family — mother Nina (Darby Stanchfield), older brother Tyler (Connor Jessup), sister Kinsey (Emilia Jones), and younger brother Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) — who move cross country to their family’s ancestral home in New England after the unexpected death of their patriarch (Bill Heck). But they find more than they bargained for in that house, in the form of a series of magical keys that can open doors with strange supernatural powers. It soon falls to the Locke family to protect these keys from otherworldly being Dodge (Laysla De Oliveira), who wants to use them to bring her the keys for nefarious reasons.

“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke & Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill said in a statement. “We are grateful to Netflix for all their support, especially at this difficult time, and look forward to bringing you the exciting next chapter of our story.”

Season 1 of Locke & Key touched on many of the main beats from Hill and Rodriguez’s comics, but also ended with an unexpected plot twist that put the characters in an interesting position for season 2. No premiere date has yet been announced.

Tale As Old As Time, Song As Old As Rhyme, Season 2 of The Disney+ Series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Begins Production

Production has resumed in Salt Lake City on the second season of the popular Disney+ series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” as the East High drama students prepare to perform “Beauty and the Beast” as their Spring musical. Slated for a late 2020 debut on Disney+, the second season will include reimagined musical numbers from both the “High School Musical” movies and the stage production of “Beauty and the Beast,” in addition to brand-new songs that join hits from season one like “Born to Be Brave” and “Just for a Moment.”

Created and executive-produced by Tim Federle (Golden Globe and Academy Award-nominated “Ferdinand”), the series has been “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes as measured by a consensus of reviews by top critics and audience members.  It was recently nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.

The soundtrack entered the Billboard 200 at (#31). Most recently, the single “All I Want,” written and performed by Olivia Rodrigo, has garnered over 52 million streams globally across all platforms. Rodrigo will perform the song on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Thursday, February 6 (please check local listings).

“We’re excited about Tim’s plans for the new season.  He continues to amaze and surprise us with the relationships and stories he’s creating for this unbelievably talented cast.  Season two will be filled with even more of the humor, heart, and music that made HSMTMTS a break-out series on Disney+,” said Ricky Strauss, president, Content & Marketing, Disney+.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “The opportunity to ‘borrow’ one of the most classic Disney scores – and build our second season of HSMTMTS around it – is like having your wish upon a star granted.”

“The outpouring of love and support for season one has been incredibly exciting, and I’m thrilled that the Wildcats are putting on ‘Beauty and the Beast’ in season two,” said Tim Federle. “It was one of the first Broadway shows I ever saw, when I was 14, and it’s got all the perfect metaphors for the high school experience: Do people judge me for how I look? What is true love? Will I achieve the future I dream of? And, perhaps most importantly, it’s got dancing forks.”

Joe Serafini (“Seb”) will be a series regular in season two, joining Olivia Rodrigo (“Nini”), Joshua Bassett (“Ricky”), Matt Cornett (“E.J.”), Sofia Wylie (“Gina”), Larry Saperstein (“Big Red”), Julia Lester (“Ashlyn”), Dara Reneé (“Kourtney”), Frankie Rodriguez (“Carlos”), Mark St. Cyr (“Mr. Mazzara”) and Kate Reinders (“Miss Jenn”).

“High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” creator Tim Federle also serves as executive producer of season two.

Season one of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” is currently available on Disney+.

Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy Renewed For A Second Season

Netflix has announced that The Umbrella Academy has been renewed or a second season. The live-action superhero series will return with a 10-episode order with production set to start this summer in Toronto, Canada.

On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

The Umbrella Academy is based on the popular, Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. Season 1 stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, Mary J. Blige, Colm Feore, Adam Godley, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe, and Kate Walsh.

Page, Hopper, Castañeda, Raver-Lampman, Sheehan, Gallagher, and Justin Min are set to reprise their roles in Season 2. Additional casting will be announced later.

Watch The Cobra Kai Season 2 Trailer

Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence are back and their rivalry is bigger than ever. Will Daniel’s new Miyagi-Do dojo have what it takes to beat Cobra Kai–or can Johnny keep the dream alive? 

The first season of the YouTube Premium series caught up with the characters from “Karate Kid” 34 years after LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) crane-kicked his bullying rival Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in the face to win the All Valley Karate Championship. Decades later, Johnny gets the Cobra Kai dojo up and running again with star pupil Miguel (Xolo Mariduena), and LaRusso, still harboring ill feelings, starts training his own student, Robby (Tanner Buchanan) – whom he later learns is Johnny’s estranged teenage son. John Kreese, the evil Cobra Kai sensei played by Martin Kove in the original “Karate Kid” movies, showed up at the very end of the first season, surprising Johnny as well as viewers.

The new 10-episode season focuses on LaRusso opening his own Miyagi-Do school and passing on the wisdom of mentor Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita) to a fledgling group that includes Robby and LaRusso’s daughter Samantha (Mary Mouser).

Don’t miss the new season of Cobra Kai arriving on April 24 on YouTube Premium.

Watch Marvel’s The Punisher Season 2 Trailer

Marvel and Netflix have released the full trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher Season 2, which sees Frank Castle hitting the road as he tries to move on from his past. However, Frank can’t leave the vest behind when trouble finds him, bringing him back to his old life with a new mission and a sidekick he never asked for.

Former Marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.

In the first season of The Punisher, Castle was seemingly free to resume his life without fear of prosecution, thanks to a Presidential pardon. We don’t know what will cause Castle to reclaim his Punisher persona, but it likely has something to do with Billy Russo’s return as Jigsaw — complete with a new mask. Amber Rose Revah’s Dinah Madani and Jason R. Moore’s Curtis Hoyle are the only other cast members officially returning from the show’s first season.

Annette O’Toole and Corbin Bernsen are also joining the show as Eliza and Anderson Schultz, respectively. Giorgia Whigham will portray Amy Bendix, with Floriana Lima as Krista Dumont, and Josh Stewart as John Pilgrim. Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal) serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer.

The Punisher Season 2 will launch on Netflix on January 18, 2019.
