Lucifer S4 Films Runaways S2 Dated

Lucifer
Netflix has confirmed that filming has officially begun on the fourth season of its supernatural drama series “Lucifer”. FOX cancelled the series less than four months ago, but the streaming giant picked up the series for their service.

The new season will feature just ten episodes as opposed to the third’s twenty-four, but it will all arrive at once as is the nature of Netflix series. Production on the new episodes is slated to last until December for an expected 2019 release.

One Dollar
CBS All Access has released the first full trailer for its ensemble mystery series “One Dollar” premiering August 30th. Set in a small rustbelt town in a corner of America hit hard by the recession, the story follows a one-dollar bill as it changes hands and connects a group of characters involved in the shocking murder of multiple people.

John Carroll Lynch, Nathaniel Martello-White, Philip Ettinger, Chris Denham, Kirrilee Berger, Gracie Lawrence, Leslie Odom Jr., Jeff Perry and Sturgill Simpson star in the Pittsburgh-shot series.

Knightfall
History has announced that they have renewed the hit drama series “Knightfall” for a second season, and add that Mark Hamill has officially signed on to join the cast. Aaron Helbing (“The Flash”) will serve as the series’ showrunner and executive producer.

Hamill will play Talus, a battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran of the Crusades. Talus survived captivity for ten years in the Holy Land, and is now tasked with training new initiates to the Order. Also onboard are Tom Forbes (“Wolf Hall”) as the violent and unpredictable Prince Louis, and Genevieve Gaunt as Isabella – both the children of King Philip. [Source: History]
