Thousands of years from now, alien archaeologists will come to one inescapable conclusion: The Simpsons dictated humanity’s every advance. The latest evidence is none other than today’s giant Disney-Fox merger, which America’s favorite family jokingly predicted in 1998.
The Simpsons hasn’t had to replace any of its core voice cast just yet, but will nonetheless sound a bit different in Season 29. Longtime composer Alf Clausen was apparently let go from the series after nearly three decades, while the show pursues “a different kind of music.”
The first official trailer for Marvel’s FOX mutant drama The Gifted concentrated primarily on its core family, but a new sneak peek brings Bryan Singer’s X-Men touch. See mutant powers flying every which way with the latest promo.
No one would argue that How I Met Your Mother was thoroughly (and painfully) concluded over nine seasons, so much so that CBS thought better of continuing the franchise with a spinoff. Well, in case you needed to know what Ted, Robin, Barney, Marshall and Lily have been up to in the last three years, FOX is at least entertaining the idea of a revival.
There will come a day when Stan Lee’s Marvel cameos are few and far between, but it is not this day. FOX’s tentatively-titled X-Men drama Gifted will feature the Marvel mainstay in a guest role, as revealed in Bryan Singer’s new BTS photo.
It’s generally accepted Gotham practice, that because the series would take a decade or so to elevate David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne to Batman, some of the character’s greatest foes have arisen inexplicably early. So it was with the Joker-esque Jerome, and now Season 3 may be introducing a Harley Quinn character before the year is out.
Having survived its latest challenge to eternal status quo by way of Sunday’s Girls-y premiere, The Simpsons seem poised for fewer head-turning changes this fall. That is, until Waylon Smithers finally, and officially comes out of the closet to all, while an even bigger surprise may lie ahead beyond Season 30.
