The rumor mill is always churning out some juicy secrets or details these days. Whether another professional athlete has side baby, or another Kardashian lands herself in a new relationship, celebrity gossip stays buzzing. This time, however, news comes from the realm of television as it is rumored that ABC is looking to spinoff  the recently cancelled Roseanne reboot!

Rumor has it that ABC is looking to base the spinoff of the reboot on Sara Gilbert’s character, “Darlene Connor.” As you may already know, Darlene is Roseanne’s second daughter and middle child, known for being as sarcastic and cynical as she is intelligent. In the reboot we saw her living with Roseanne and Dan again with her son and daughter after losing her job in Chicago.

Variety reports that Sara Gilbert and the executive producers of the currently deceased show met with Channing Dungey this past Monday and presented her with an idea for a spinoff featuring Darlene. John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf would be willing to join said spinoff, as would the now-unemployed. Because the show was renewed for a second season, an approved spinoff could go into production immediately and be ready to go possibly by late November—maybe just in time for Thanksgiving, so viewers can spend time with a casually racist family that is not their own.

Truly, it seems all the stars are aligned for some form of this program to return—but there is still the issue of Roseanne Barr, the star of Roseanne, who is the reason the show got cancelled in the first place. As she’s the creator of the character Roseanne Connor, she’d have some financial stake in any spin-off, which is a situation that ABC doesn’t want to support. The very same curiosity that drove viewers to watch the reboot in the first place will likely draw them back to a spin-off featuring Darlene, which is clearly what the networks and producers are banking on, ever since their money source, a Twitter troll, flew a little too close to the sun.

We have to say we saw this Darlene spinoff coming. After Roseanne spewed her racism on Twitter we knew it was only a matter of time they found a way to continue this widely popular show. We suspect they will kill her character off and have her family move on without her with Darlene taking on the role as the new matriarch of the Connor Clan. We are keeping our fingers crossed for Sara Gilbert, she definitely deserves this opportunity!

Rhythm + Flow stands out from other music competition series like American Idol and The Voice in its subject matter and rap/hip-hop roots, and with how it is being released via Netflix. Usually, Netflix releases all the episodes of it series at once allowing viewers to binge watch, however, Rhythm + Flow consists of nine episodes with three episodes being released each week until the finale. This is actually an idea TI suggested. “I didn’t want people just being able to go to the last episode, missing the journey, and spoiling it for everyone…I was like something like this has to be approached differently. ” TI’s input and wisdom are definitely an asset on the show, offering pertinent advice to competitors contrasting Chance’s straightforward approach and Cardi’s hilarious quips. “I bring longevity to the mix, because in this rap game you’ve got to have that to make your mark. Re-branding, evolving, and knowing how to hustle is what I’m teaching.”

The show eliminates contestants through cyphers, rap battles, live performances, and music videos that allow them to tell their backstories. TI admits the hardest part of being a judge is watching someone be eliminated that he feels would have won if they would have made it further in the competition. When asked if he is signing anyone that was eliminated he replies: “No comment.”

We cannot wait for you all to see Rhythm + Flow! Catch it on Netflix today!

There seems to be a time lapse in between Seasons 3 and 4 as Glimmer, Queen Angella’s daughter has become Queen of Bright Moon, and has a new more mature look. Meanwhile, Catra becomes the leader of The Horde, unaware Hordak Prime is prepared to raze Etherea. Adora, however, explores her connection even more so to She-Ra, learning she is far more than just a sword toting warrior princess. She is instead, a protector with a greater destiny than she, her friends, allies, or enemies know.

This LGBT friendly series continues to up the ante while paying homage to the original series. The depth, the design, and the storytelling is profound and complex. We cannot wait for the new season! What do you think of the new trailer for She-Ra & The Princesses of Power? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Dear ABC we love you! This network continues to delivery on diversity and hits with its milestone television series that tell the most amazing stories.  The latest of these hits is none other than black-ish’s latest spinoff, mixed-ish! 

mixed-ish cast

The series is a prequel to black-ish,  and based on Rainbow “Bow” Johnson’s (Tracee Ellis Ross) childhood as she transitioned from living on a commune to the real world. An additional kick arises as she and her siblings must learn to navigate the world as biracial children during a time when being “mixed” was still taboo.

This a series you can’t help but love as it tackles issues of conformity, being a Black woman in America, and how so many biracial children fill forced to pick a side when it comes to their ethnicity. It is wonderfully written and the cast is all-star with the likes of Mark Paul Gosselaar, Tika Sumpter, and more. We recently attended a screening for the first episode at Regal Hollywood 24 in Chamblee, GA. There, guests were able to take photos with a mixed-ish  background at the photo booth and were treated to beverages and snacks.

The series premiere of mixed-ish Tuesday,  September 24 at 9 PM EST! Check out the theme song of the series performed by Mariah Carey, In The Mix, below!
