After getting delayed twice this year, “Star Trek: Discovery” is finally heading to the silver screen. Produced by Bryan Fuller (who created “American Gods”) and Alex Kurtzman, the series is set ten years before the era of Captain Kirk and Commander Spock from the original “Star Trek” series. Yes, the classic one with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. “Discovery” refers to the show’s featured starship and the story will center on its first officer, Michael Burnham (played by Sonequa Martin-Green). The producers of “Star Trek: Discovery” also notably made it a point of
casting a very diverse range of actors—which is quite appropriate considering the utopian ideals of the franchise.

 

INHUMANS

INHUMANS

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is now getting hotter (and slightly more confusing) than ever. As the newest TV series in the franchise, “Inhumans” center on the Inhuman Royal Family (obviously) and will feature Black Bolt (ruler of the Inhumans with a destructive voice who can level cities with a whisper), Medusa (Black Bolt’s wife
who can control her super-strong hair), supervillain Maximus (Black Bolt’s brother who can control minds) and many more. The first two episodes will debut in IMAX theaters before heading to TV. Also, make sure to keep an eye out for Chad James Buchanan (from our June/July 2017 issue) who will make an appearance in “Inhumans.”

 

THE DEFENDERS

THE DEFENDERS

After their own individual Netflix shows, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will come together in the “The Defenders.” Set a few months after the second season of “Daredevil” and a month after “Iron Fist,” the series will tell the story of the four heroes teaming up to save New York from The Hand (an evil organization of mystical ninjas). Interestingly, they will be led by Alexandra Reid (Sigourney Weaver), an original character written specifically for “The Defenders.”

 

YOUNG SHELDON

Stars Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber

YOUNG SHELDON

This September, we will be treated to “Young Sheldon,” the prequel to “The Big Bang Theory.” As the title suggests, the story will be of a young Sheldon Cooper. If you think you had it rough in high school, imagine how it will be
for a nine-year-old genius with a tendency to blurt whatever’s on his mind without a second thought. “Young Sheldon,” by the way, will be narrated by the adult Sheldon (Jim Parsons) as his younger self struggles with family life, classmates and his neighbors.
