Tv News Who Jupiter Snowpiercer Promos

Doctor Who
BBC and BBC America have both announced that a major tease related to the twelfth season (and second overall for current star Jodie Whittaker) of “Doctor Who” is coming on November 23rd. We’ve already been warned the new season won’t air until early 2020, so speculation is high it’ll be the new season trailer premiere date, or potentially even an early episode. The series last episode to air was ‘Resolution’ on New Year’s Day. [Source: Twitter]

Jupiter’s Legacy
Sang Kyu Kim (“Designated Survivor,” “24: Live Another Day”) has been named as the new showrunner for Netflix’s “Jupiter’s Legacy” series. Kim joins following the exit in September of Steven S. DeKnight who stepped down as showrunner over creative differences half-way through production of the eight-episode first season. Josh Duhamel, Ben Daniels, Leslie Bibb, Andrew Horton, Matt Lanter and Mike Wade star.

DeKnight wrote and directed the first episode of the series, based on the comic by Mark Millar which begins with the world’s first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930s. They are now the revered elder guard, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents. [Source: Deadline]

Snowpiercer
Tom Lipinski (“The Knick,” “Billions”) is set for a recurring role as an officious member of Hospitality in the second season of “Snowpiercer” on TNT with shooting now underway. The first season, which stars Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs, premieres Spring 2020.

Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the story centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a 1001 car, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out. [Source: Deadline]
