Paramount+ has ordered a Teen Wolf movie revival, and talks are underway with the original cast to return for the one-off film. Additionally, franchise creator Jeff Davis — who is shepherding the pic — is also developing a new Teen Wolf-themed series for MTV titled Wolf Pack. MTV Studios is producing both projects.
Here’s the logline for Teen Wolf Movie: “A full moon rises in Beacon Hills, and with it a terrifying evil has emerged. The wolves are howling once again, calling for the return of Banshees, Werecoyotes, Hellhounds, Kitsunes, and every other shapeshifter in the night. But only a Werewolf like Scott McCall, no longer a teenager yet still an Alpha, can gather both new allies and reunite trusted friends to fight back against what could be the most powerful and deadliest enemy they’ve ever faced.” [Source]
The Smallville Gazette just found its next (albeit extremely meta) front page story: The CW has renewed Superman & Lois for a second season after just one airing, TVLine has learned.
“The phenomenal multi-platform debut of Superman & Lois, which delivered for us in a big way on both a linear and streaming basis, is a testament to the creativity, hard work and dedication of the talented people who worked tirelessly in front of and behind the camera, especially in this challenging environment,” CW CEO Mark Pedowitz said in a statement on Tuesday. “We are thrilled to now have two brand-new bonafide hits in Superman & Lois and Walker, both of which have been renewed for next season along with 11 other of our shows, further positioning us for continued strength and stability for next season.” [More at Source]
Happy new year everyone! Tyler Hoechlin is coming back to our TV full time thanks to the CW!
The CW announced on Tuesday that the Supergirl offshoot, headlined by Arrowverse vets Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, has been ordered to series for the 2020-21 TV season. As such, it will join the network’s superhero slate alongside the already renewed The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman and recently inducted Black Lightning.
Superman & Lois — which will still film its first episode this spring, ahead of the May Upfronts — follows “the world’s most famous superhero and comic books’ most famous journalist” as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. Based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the pilot will be written and executive-produced by Todd Helbing (The Flash), Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns will also serve as EPs on the project from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Hoechlin originated the role of the Arrowverse’s Superman/Clark Kent in Supergirl‘s Season 2 premiere, while Tulloch, who made her debut as Lois in 2018’s “Elseworlds” crossover. Both are currently guest-starring in this TV season’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event, which resumes/concludes Tuesday night. [More at Source]
I’ve updated the gallery with stills & screencaptures of Arrowverse’s crossover event for this year, titled Elseworlds. Part 1 aired as part of The Flash yesterday, with Arrow airing tonight and Supergirl airing on Tuesday.
Tyler Hoechlin and Justin Chatwin have boarded the cast of the Netflix sci-fi drama series Another Life, TVLine has learned.
English actor Samuel Anderson (Sky 1’s Trollied) and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (The Walking Dead) have also joined the project from creator/showrunner Aaron Martin (Being Erica, Degrassi: The Next Generation) and producer Noreen Halpern (Alias Grace).
Ordered to series last April, Another Life centers on Niko Breckinridge (played by Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff), an astronaut who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. To that end, she leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her untested crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, Supergirl) has been cast as Ian Yerxa, the onetime commander of the space exploration ship who loses the post to Breckenridge, while Chatwin (Shameless, Orphan Black) will play Erik Wallace, part of the United States Interstellar Command — and Niko’s husband.[Source]
This December’s Arrowverse crossover gets more super by the minute.
The three-night, Legends-less crossover event — kicking off Sunday, Dec. 9, with a special airing of The Flash — will not only introduce viewers to Kate Kane aka Gotham vigilante Batwoman (played by Orange Is the New Black‘s Ruby Rose), but also return Superman (played by Supergirl‘s Tyler Hoechlin) to the heroic fray as well.
Kara’s cousin/James Olsen’s BFF won’t be going stag this time around, however. Nope, Supes’ No. 1 gal, intrepid reporter Lois Lane, is coming along for the ride.
“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Lois Lane to the Arrowverse,” Supergirlexecutive producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said in a statement. “This dogged, determined and brave reporter will make for a strong partner to Superman and amazing addition to our universe of DC characters.”
Lois Lane’s most notable live-action portrayers have included Teri Hatcher, Erica Durance, and, of course, the late Margot Kidder.
Hoechlin to date has portrayed Clark Kent/Superman four times on Supergirl, most recently appearing in the CW series’ Season 2 finale.
Once again, this year’s Arrowvese crossover event will air Sunday, Dec. 9 through Tuesday, Dec. 11, comprised of the ninth episodes of The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl‘s new seasons. [Source]
