DOCTOR WHO Trailer Features an Emoji Robot and More TV News

Emojis are everywhere: your phone, starring in movies, and even appearing in Doctor Who. See what I’m talking about by watching the series 10 trailer in today’s TV-Cap, then stick around to get some American Gods info from SXSW, learn about a renewal for a Netflix original, and more.

Adventure! Oh boy. I haven’t seen any episodes of Doctor Who with Bill yet, but based on this series 10 trailer and other glimpses we’ve seen of the character, I’m a fan. She’s in the wide-eyed wonder stage of traveling in the TARDIS with the Twelfth Doctor, and that’s the most fun part. The above trailer shows her and the Doctor in action with Nardole and teases some foes they’ll face–like an emoji robot, Missy, and an Ice Warrior. New episodes arrive to BBC America on April 15. Get Kyle A.’s thoughts on the trailer here at Nerdist.

It’s Morphin’ Time. If you’re beyond ready for the premiere of the Power Rangers film on March 24, then TwitchPresents will help you get even more amped. Beginning today, March 14, at 11:00a.m. PT, they’ll be the home for a 17 day marathon of all 23 seasons of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. They’ll get through them all by March 30. [IGN]

Throwback. The Big Bang Theory prequel is a go. CBS has given Young Sheldon a straight to series order with Iain Armitage in the lead role. They’re not kidding about the young part; Sheldon will be nine years old in the show. And hey, Jon Favreau is going to direct and executive produce the pilot. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Fortunate News. If you’re invested in the dismal fate of the Baudelaire orphans, then you’re in luck because Netflix has renewed A Series of Unfortunate Events for season two. As Lemony Snicket says, they’ve “funneled their ill-gotten gains” into another season. To which I say a resounding yay. [TVLine]

On the Streets. Netflix has released a snazzy new poster for Iron Fist; the next Marvel series arrives on March 17. Danny Rand, a.k.a. Iron Fist, takes front and center in the city street. The Avengers tower is in the background, and Danny’s flanked by Colleen Wing and Joy and Ward Meachum. See it at IGN. [CBR]

On the Road. I’m over here counting down the days until the April 30 premiere of American Gods on Starz. I can pass the time with some news from SXSW though. The cast and executive producers appeared on a panel at the event, and bless them, they don’t shy away from discussing the social commentary aspects of the drama. You can watch the whole panel above. Also revealed at SXSW, Emily Browning isn’t only going to play Laura Moon in the series; she’s also set to portray Essie Tregowan, the lady responsible for bringing Mad Sweeney to America. [Nerdist]

Pitch This. Don Draper came up with pitch after pitch on Mad Men. Duh, it was his job. But which of his ideas should be used in real life? Michael has some suggestions here at Nerdist.

TV in a Movie World. The television version¬†of Snatch¬†(well, it’s set in the same world as the film of the same name) drops on Crackle on March 16. If you’re on the fence about tuning in, Luke’s review of the first two episodes might help you make up your mind.

What do you make of the new Doctor Who trailer? Tell me your thoughts in the comments.
