Fired On Mars

HBO, 20 April 2023

A tricky one, since HBO hasn’t released any trailers of news yet. But we know that HBO bought the rights to produce a series based on the 2016 short film by Nate Sherman and Nick Vokey, Fired on Mars. As the name suggests, a graphic designer on a one-way trip to Mars gets fired from his job when he gets there. Now what? Well, the team recently did an interview re the show at WonderCon, and it looks to still be set for a 20 April release. So let’s see what happens on Fired on Mars.

Mrs Davis

Peacock, 20 April 2023

One of the month’s most anticipated sci-fi series, Mrs Davis is an AI. And Simone is the nun who is hell-bent on destroying her. It? Staring Betty Gilpin and produced by Big Bang Theory creator Tara Hernandez and Watcmen’s Damon Lindelof, it looks bananas and we should probably prepare for a crazy ride in Mrs Davis.

The Mandalorian Season 3

Dinsey+, 1 March 2023

It’s hard to intro The Mandalorian Season 3 without some Book of Boba Fett spoilers, but the trailer at least helps make it clear that, despite the seeming finality of Grogu going with Luke Skywalker at the end of Season 2, in this season Pedro Pascal’s The Mandalorian aka “Din Djarin” is in fact reunited with Grogu, aka “Baby Yoda”. (The Book of Boba Fett fans will already know that.) Din and Grogu are set for the Mandalorian home planet, Mandalore, so Din can atone for removing his helmet. It’s exciting because Jon Favreau was again very active this season, penning at least 5 out of the 8 episodes of The Mandalorian Season 3.

History Of The World, Part II

Hulu, 6 March 2023

Comedy legend Mel Brooks’ 1981 film History of the World, Part I is actually getting a sequel when the 8-episode History of the World, Part II series drops on Hulu from 6 March onwards. It’s quite funny since, despite the name, Brooks never actually intended a sequel (it was a joke when he first made it). But what a pleasant surprise. We get a star-studded cast: Johnny Knoxville, Seth Rogen, Lauren Lapkus, Danny DeVito, David Duchovny, Pamela Adlon, Tyler James Williams, Sarah Silverman and so many more – with Mel Brooks himself and David Stassen writing. How it works is 2 new episodes release every day from 6–9 March.

When Batman is murdered, his adoptive son Turner Hayes (a new character, exclusively created for the show) befriends the children of some of the Bat’s arch nemeses to form a new squad of protectors.
