— Mr. Robot will be ending after four seasons. The final batch of 12 episodes will be released sometime in 2019.
— It doesn’t give us much, but there is a new teaser for the upcoming season of The Good Place.
— Damon Herriman — aka Dewey Crowe from Justified — has been cast as Charles Manson. Twice. He’ll play the mass murderer in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the second season of David Fincher’s Mindhunter, where he’ll play Manson in prison circa 1980. (For the record, he was cast in Mindhunter first.
— Again, I haven’t watched The Affair since the opening season, but Ruth Wilson continues to be cryptic about her exit, saying that she did ask to leave the show, that it had nothing to do with pay disparity, and that “there is a much bigger story” that she is not allowed to talk about.
— There’s a new trailer for Big Mouth season 2, which comes out on October 5th. If you haven’t seen the first season, do: It’s damn near Bojack good.
— Chris Hemsworth will star in a Netflix thriller written by his Infinity War director, Joe Russo. Dkaha, a kidnapping flick, will be directed by Chris Evans’ old stuntman, Sam Hargrave, who was also the second unit director on Infinity War and Atomic Blonde. It arrives in April 2019.
— Amazon has shelved Woody Allen’s next film, A Rainy Day in New York indefinitely.
— A sequel to A Quiet Place has received a May 2020 release date. I wasn’t that keen on a sequel until I realized it means two hours of Emily Blunt kicking alien ass. I’m cool with that.
— I’m slightly embarrassed for how excited I am about the release of the A Star is Born soundtrack, which contains 34 tracks (19 songs and 15 tracks of dialogue). It comes out on October 5th. Reviews out of Venice have been very good.
