DC Comics fans are heartbroken over The CW’s decision to cancel Arrow after it next, and eighth season. The announcement was made earlier this week by the network that the series would end later this year after a half-season culminating in the network’s annual superhero crossover event. Many are concluding that Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) is set to die in the event. The Flash is just one of a number of spin-off series of Arrow, collectively dubbed by fans as the “Arrowverse;” and its star, Grant Gustin, has recently broken his silence on his feelings on the cancellation.

It kinda just hit me this morning that Arrow will be leaving us next year. Ever since I started doing this, it’s always been “Flash & Arrow” (or really this should of said “Arrow & Flash” on it’s cover….right, Stephen?)We don’t get to see a lot of each other, because we both work very similar schedules, on different shows, for 9 1/2 months out of the year. But when we’re brought together for those grueling crossover episodes, it always results in something pretty special. And not JUST a special kind of hell. It’s just absolutely bananas to stand around with that many people in super suits, and get paid to play make believe on tv. It’s something that wouldn’t happen year after year if it weren’t for the groundwork that Arrow, Stephen and the whole cast and crew laid for us. Not just that, but Stephen has always brought a different kind of passion to his show and the whole Arrowverse. It’s always been clear to me how much it means to Stephen to have the privilege of getting to go on this journey as Oliver Queen. And how much care he’s always put towards it. I will never forget ohh soo many memories we shared together during our hundreds, if not thousands of hours of crossover filming. Thank you to everyone who was a part of making Arrow for letting me come on this journey with you all. Congratulations on a badass show that will live on forever. I’ll never forget binge watching season one and being scared shitless my first day on set, seeing you all in person. Stephen, you’re a legend. Maybe this means we can hang out more?

As DC Comics fanboys we really hate to see Arrow cancelled, it is one of our favorite series. Still, we wonder is there a place for Green Arrow elsewhere in the Arrowverse. We love DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but the show could use a more serious tone to it. Team Arrow will be greatly missed. Let’s enjoy these last few episodes guys (wipes tear away).

It has been a year and a half since we walked the Ivy League halls of Winchester with our faves, Coco (Antoinette Robertson), Sam (Logan Browning), Troy, (Brandon P. Bell),  Reggie (Marque Richardson), Gabe (John Patrick Amedori), Lionel (DeRon Horton), and Joelle (Ashley Blaine Featherson). Now our motley college crew is back for Dear White People, Vol. 3!

When we last left Sam and Lionel discovered a secret organization pulling the string at Winchester, Cocoa was as power hungry as ever, Reggie and Joelle became a full-fledged couple, Troy was in a new relationship, and Sam and Gabe are still on the outs. This season so much comes to the forefront and changes when outside forces come into play, forcing the cast of characters to deal with real life, new life experiences, and possibly being puppets on a string!

Check out an additional trailer below!

We love the trailers and are glad to see other stars like Laverne Cox and Yvette Nicole Brown on board! What do you guys think of the new trailers and return of Dear White People? Sound off in the comments section below!

No More Nola! Netflix Cancels “She’s Gotta Have It” (@shesgottahaveit) After Two Seasons

We really wish we could “Say it ain’t so,” but it is true. Netflix has opted to cancel Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It after just two seasons. The second season of the series focused on Nola Darling’s newfound success as an unwitting mainstream artist not centered on her love affair with her three suitors from the previous season.

she's gotta have it  canceled

The show’s second season premiered on the streaming service back on May 24, 2019. The show starred DeWanda Wise as Nola Darling, Anthony Ramos as Mars Blackmon, Lyriq Bent as Jamie Overstreet, Cleo Anthony as Greer Childs, Margot Bingham as Clorinda “Clo” Bradford, Chyna Layne as Shemekka Epps, and De’Adre Aziza as Raqueletta Moss.

Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and we’re thrilled he brought the series She’s Gotta Have It (1986, based on his first feature film) to Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said, per Variety. “While this is our last season, we’re very proud that it will be on our service for years to come, and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film Da 5 Bloods.”

Lee will reportedly shop the series around in hopes of finding it another home. 

News of She’s Gotta Have It’s cancelation comes on the heels of reports that Netflix lost 130,000 subscribers in the U.S. during Q2. “Our missed forecast was across all regions, but slightly more so in regions with price increases,” Netflix said. The company pointed to their “content” as one of the reasons for the decline. “Rather, we think Q2’s content slate drove less growth in paid net adds than we anticipated.”

We hope Spike will find another network for She’s Gotta Have It. There is so much magic to this series, and it was the first that we know of to actually delve into Black art. Nola Darling we refuse to let you go!

Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

QUOTE FROM CREATOR CHRIS VAN DUSEN:

“We could not have found a more gifted group of actors to bring Bridgerton to life.  When creating this series, the goal was to turn a very traditional genre on its head and make something fresh, smart, sexy and fun. That’s exactly what this cast embodies and I’m ridiculously excited to see them inhabit these characters and captivate viewers in their own incredibly brilliant ways.”

CAST:

 Phoebe Dynevor bridgerton

PHOEBE DYNEVOR (Younger, Dickensian) will play “DAPHNE BRIDGERTON.”

The picture-perfect young debutante has been waiting her entire life to make her grand debut on the marriage mart.  Poised to be the season of 1813’s forthcoming Incomparable, Daphne’s set to take the town by storm – but not everything goes exactly as planned for this diamond of the first water, especially after she meets a certain Duke.

Rege-Jean Page bridgerton

REGÉ-JEAN PAGE (For The People, Roots) will play “SIMON BASSET.”

Having newly returned to London, the Duke of Hastings finds himself the primary topic of conversation amongst marriage-minded misses and ambitious mamas alike.  Yet, for reasons of his own, our devastating Duke has zero interest in his title, society, or taking a wife.

Golda Rosheuvel bridgerton

GOLDA ROSHEUVEL (Silent Witness, Lady MacBeth) will play “QUEEN CHARLOTTE.”

The veritable tastemaker of London society, Queen Charlotte finds herself living for the sordid gossip that Lady Whistledown prints, though she’d swear she’s above such mundane musings.  It’s only when the ton’s newest gossip writer takes aim at the palace that Queen Charlotte knows she must do something about it.
