Trailers: The Newest Walking Dead Series and More

The Walking Dead has spawned one spinoff already, but there’s a second in the works — and the first footage of the newest series in the universe debuted at New York Comic-Con last weekend. While it doesn’t yet have an official title, the show follows a group of “the Endlings” — a.k.a. teenagers who were born into a world already plagued with Walkers. It’s scheduled to premiere sometime in 2020 and is currently filming.

In addition, check out the rest of this week’s biggest trailers:

While fall premieres are still happening — The CW’s Arrow isn’t back until Oct. 15 — networks are already beginning to decide which shows they’re betting will be big. The first series to receive an order for additional episodes in its first season is Fox’s Prodigal Son, which will get nine more episodes for a full season total of 22. Incidentally, it was already the highest-rated new series on the main broadcast networks this season, with 8.5 million viewers tuning in to the premiere episode on various platforms (i.e. linear and streaming). Last season’s winner was NBC’s New Amsterdam, which began its second season the day after Prodigal Son’s premiere.


The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Could Get a Spinoff

The latest ’90s sitcom to get a revival: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. According to a recent Hollywood Reporter profile of Will Smith, the actor and his production company Westbrook Inc. are developing a Fresh Prince spinoff. There are no further details available, so let the speculation of the potential new series’ plot begin!

Joining Kelly Clarkson in the newest class of daytime talk show hosts is Drew Barrymore, who will head her own syndicated chat series on CBS-owned TV stations across the country.

“It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show,” Barrymore said in a statement announcing the news. “I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.”


Yeah B—h! Aaron Paul Recaps Breaking Bad in Less Than Three Minutes

Are you excited to watch El Camino on Netflix this weekend, but it’s been a few years since you last watched Breaking Bad? Aaron Paul is here to help. The actor provided a public service during his recent visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live, recapping the entire series in just two and a half minutes.

Check it out above to refresh your memory about magnets, Jessica Jones, and Nazis.

Haunting of Hill House’s Michiel Huisman has booked his next thriller: the HBO Max series The Flight Attendant alongside Kaley Cuoco and Sonoya Mizuno. He’ll play a wealthy businessman who meets Cuoco’s titular character in Bangkok and suffers from “serious bad luck,” per Deadline.

Jason Behr, who starred in the 1999 teen alien drama Roswell, will star in a recurring role in The CW’s rebooted version, Roswell, New Mexico. Details about his character have not been revealed, though creator Carina Adly MacKenzie teased a “top-secret character with deep ties to Roswell, New Mexico’s history.” In another nostalgic nod to the original series, Behr’s co-star Shiri Appleby directed an episode of Roswell, New Mexico in which he appears. Also guest-starring this season is Friday Night LightsGaius Charles, a.k.a. Dillon Panthers running back Smash Williams. He’ll play Bronson, “a local farmer with a strong moral compass that leads him to see the good in people — and aliens — in a time of great prejudice. Ultimately, his quest to protect those he loves pits him against forces far more powerful than he is.”

Nick Jonas will join The Voice as the singing competition’s newest coach. He’ll compete alongside Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend.

Marvel’s first live-action terror comic adaptation, Helstrom, has found its leads: Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon will play Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer who team up to hunt down demons who hurt others. The series will also star Elizabeth Marvel, Robert Wisdom, June Carryl, Ariana Guerra, and Alain Uy.

Allison Janney will narrate National Geographic’s new special Expedition Amelia, a two-hour documentary following deep sea explorer Dr. Bob Ballard’s mission to solve the mystery of aviator Amelia Earhart’s death. The two-hour event airs Sunday, Oct. 20 at 8 p.m. on Nat Geo.

David Oyelowo will star in Showtime’s drama pilot The President Is Missing, about a vice president (Oyelowo) who reluctantly and unexpectedly becomes president halfway through his administration’s first term after a world-threatening crisis. The series is based on the bestseller by President Bill Clinton and James Patterson, and will film in early 2020.

Jenna Dewan is set to host Fox’s new dating series Flirty Dancing, where complete strangers learn half of a dance routine and meet for the first time before performing together without saying a word.

Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón is the newest creator to sign a big overall TV deal. The director will create new projects for Apple, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

HBO Max has ordered two kids’ reality competition series for the new streaming service. Karma takes 16 kids off the grid to solve puzzles and overcome challenges “with the laws of karma setting the rules.” It’ll be hosted by YouTuber Michelle Khare. Craftopia, hosted by “millennial Martha Stewart” Lauren Riihimaki, will test kids’ crafting abilities.

Quibi’s latest addition: a collaboration with CBS News for 60 in 6, a weekly news series that will condense the biggest stories in six-minute segments for the soon-to-launch short-form streaming service.
