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.

Watch Marvel’s The Punisher: Season 2 Trailer

Marvel just released a trailer for the show’s second season, which will be available on Netflix starting January 18. The trailer shows the similarities between Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) and Jigsaw (Ben Barnes), as their inner monologues drive them to two very different extremes. In the end, Castle wants to don his Punisher garb and be the person he believes he was always “meant to be.”

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.

Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) can run but he can’t hide from who he’s meant to be. Season two finds Frank in all too familiar territory. With Castle’s former brother-in-arms Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) slowly beginning to heal from the traumatic brain injury Frank inflicted on him, it’s only a matter of time before Billy starts to put the pieces of the puzzle back together.

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.

Castle Rock Renewed For Season 2 At Hulu

It hasn’t even been a full month since the series premiered and yet Hulu is cashing in on the critical success of Castle Rock, revealing that the anthology series has been given the greenlight for a second season.

The streaming service announced that the series became the most successful first-season original launch upon its premiere at the end of July and that viewers have kept coming back to deliver Castle Rock solid ratings every week. No details have been determined yet for the episode count, return date or cast for the second season.

“Each season is going to be its own self-contained story: beginning, middle and end,” co-showrunner Dustin Thomason shared. “But I think that just as the books do, we want to surprise viewers with the ways in which the stories intersect. Just as the places the characters pop up in very unexpected ways throughout the books, that’s the kind of anthology that we would like to tell. One of the things about the King universe or multiverse is that some very strange things can happen when it comes to the ways that the stories unfold, and hopefully there’ll be surprises along the way in terms of how the anthology works in that way. It’s pretty delicious that Kathy Bates played both Dolores Claiborne and Annie Wilkes when you really think about that question in the movie adaptations. But I think that there’s something for us about being faithful to the way that Steve does it in the books, that almost feels like the anthology format has already been laid out for us.”

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.

The first season of the series stars André Holland (Moonlight), Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Bill Skarsgård (IT), Jane Levy (Don’t Breathe) and Scott Glenn (Daredevil).

Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason developed the project for television and serve as executive producers along with J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson and Liz Glotzer. Castle Rock is from Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Mike Colter returns as the titular Luke Cage, with Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades and Finn Jones as Danny Rand aka Iron Fist. Newcomers to the series so far include Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce, The Night Of) as John McIver, a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance; and Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure, Rosewood) as Tilda Johnson, a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.

The world is turning upside down on Halloween.

Season two of Stranger Things will make its debut on Netflix on the spooky holiday.

The release date was announced in a Super Bowl spot for the show, which built a cult following after its summer 2016 debut.

The show, created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, takes place in a small town in Indiana in 1983, just after a 12-year-old boy named Will goes missing. His friends and mom Joyce (played by Winona Ryder), spend much of the eight-episode series trying to find him. In the process, they encounter top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl named Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).

The Super Bowl ad featured footage from a classic Eggo commercial that debuted in 1979 and aired in the ’80s. According to a description from Netflix, Season 2 is set a year after Will’s return.

“A year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal,” Netflix said in a release. “But a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.”
