Did you think things would slow down on the news front after Comic-Con? They might later this week, but right now, we have some SDCC leftovers to unwrap and some fresh announcements. Digest today’s TV-Cap and see the first trailer for Legion, a trailer for season two of Legends of Tomorrow, find out about some Drunk History guest stars, and more.
When You Don’t Remember. FX is heading into Marvel territory with Legion, and they’ve released the first trailer for the series about David Haller. They use the “m” word and call him a powerful mutant and start to show off David’s powerful abilities. What do you think? [Nerdist]
This Is Justice. Syfy saved some good news about Wynonna Earp for SDCC. During the show’s panel, the cast and producers announced they’ve received an order for a second season. Comprised of 10 episodes, the second season will air in 2017. [The Hollywood Reporter]
Casting Updates! I have a couple of cast additions to share with you. First of all, Matthew Lillard will be joining Halt and Catch Fire in season three as a businessman named Ken Diebold. In the realm of fairy tale news, the world of Aladdin will be making an appearance in Once Upon a Time. Deniz Akdeniz will play Aladdin, Oded Fehr will play Jafar, and Karen David is on board as Jasmine. [TVLine]
What a Timely Mess. Things went rather awry with the Time Masters at the end of season one of Legends of Tomorrow, and in season two, the legends are going to have to tidy up history. The CW shared a first look at what’s ahead and though the sizzle features a lot of footage from season one, there are glimpses into the future too–like more Damien Darhk and Nazis. The show returns on October 13. [Nerdist]
Rock Star Devil. Lucifer’s going to be shopping for a new vessel to call home in season 12 of Supernatural. He’ll be going full rock star by stepping into the shoes of Vince Vincente. The character will be played by none other than Rick Springfield. [Comic Book Resources]
Not a Deadly Conversation. The comic Deadly Class is coming to television. Created by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, the high school series set at an academy for assassins is being developed by the Russo brothers. Benjamin caught up with Remender to ask about the adaptation. Read the interview here at Nerdist.
Cartoons Go Live. It’s official. The cast of the Animaniacs will be heading out on tour for Animaniacs Live. It’s all still being figured out, but the cast confirmed the tour is happening while appearing at SDCC; the event will include them singing familiar songs from the cartoon as well as new tunes. Stay tuned. [Nerdist]
Hamilton Education. Comedy Central’s Drunk History has lined up guests for season four, and they’ve nabbed Lin-Manuel Miranda. As you might guess, Miranda will be discussing the rivalry between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr (sir). Aubrey Plaza, Dave Grohl, Michael Cera, and more will also appear in the fourth season.

Find the Comedy. It’s not easy to find things to laugh about in Game of Thrones. HBO brought a season six blooper reel to SDCC, and I recommend taking time out of your Tuesday to enjoy it. My biggest takeaway: speaking Dothraki is hard. [Nerdist]
The Future? Stranger Things has made an impression, and if you’re among the fans of the new Netflix series, you should be happy. The series creators, the Duffer brothers and Shawn Levy, have confirmed they have plans for several seasons. Netflix hasn’t made any official moves towards renewal yet, so keep your fingers crossed. Read more here at Nerdist.
Are you on board with Legion? Let me know in the comments.
