Enrico Colantino is joining Kristen Bell on the eight-episode revival of, Veronica Mars. Colantino will reprise his role as Veronica’s father and the head of Mars Investigations. The original series aired from 2004-2007 and is now being picked up by Hulu. Personally, I am thrilled to have this show brought back and can’t wait to see what trouble Veronica can get herself into. The series is set to premier some time in 2019. For more details on Veronica Mars and the cast, head on over to Deadline Hollywood.

Well, it’s official. Netflix has announced that Marvel’s Iron Fist will not be returning for Season 3. This news comes just a month after its second season, which was drastically better than season 1, concluded. This is a sad moment for Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick, who were leads in this series. This is the first small screen series that has been canceled from the comic giant on Netflix. With the Iron Fist, Danny Rand, out of the picture, how will Netflix remove him from the Defenders? Or, will he make an occasional appearance on the other Marvel series?

Netflix is at it again and this time they are bringing back the world of Narnia. Netflix just closed a deal with the C.S. Lewis Company to produce a series and film projects based on C.S. Lewis’ popular book series, The Chronicles of Narnia.Through this deal, Netflix will be working with Entertainment One to develop stories from Narnia into a series and films. Mark Gordon, along with Douglas Gresham and Vincent Sieber, will be executive producers for the upcoming series and films.
