First Look At CW Seed’s Deathstroke Animated Series Revealed

The Arrowverse is expanding once again with the arrival of the Batwoman live-action series this fall, and it’s also adding to its arsenal on the animated side of things as well. It was announced just yesterday that a Deathstroke animated show is coming to CW Seed and today, we’ve already got our first look at the upcoming treat.

The CW Seed Twitter account shared the key artwork, which depicts Slade Wilson laying waste to some Hive soldiers in a tropical forest somewhere. “No mercy,” read the caption. “Deathstroke is coming soon to CW Seed.”

It’s not clear at present whether Manu Bennett will reprise his fan favorite turn as the anti-villain for the animation, but seeing as the New Zealand-born star has portrayed the Mirakuru-powered assassin on and off on Arrow since season 1, we’d expect this to be the case. Especially as CW Seed’s animations

Fox Fall 2019-2020 Trailers: Dramas ‘Prodigal Son’ and ‘Not Just Me,’ Animated Comedy ‘Bless the Harts’ (Watch)

  • Variety
Fox has released trailers for three of its new shows premiering on the network this fall, as well as a bunch for its midseason offerings.

New drama “Prodigal Son,” which features Michael Sheen, will join Fox’s Monday night lineup, “Not Just Me” will air Wednesday nights, and animated comedy “Bless the Harts,” from Amy Poehler, joins the network’s much-vaunted Sunday animated lineup, wedged between “The Simpsons” and “Bob’s Burgers.”

Fox has opted to hold back the majority of its new content for midseason, and the lack of a new live-action comedies in the lineup is an intriguing first.

Watch the trailers and read the official series descriptions for the new shows below.

Fox Fall 2019 Schedule: Empire, The Resident and More on the Move!

We already knew going into the 2019-20 season that there would be some big changes at Fox.

With the network becoming an independent network, it was evident there would be some big swings.

Empire, which has spent its first five seasons on Wednesdays is being moved to Tuesdays for its final (!) season.

It will be paired with The Resident, which is leaving its Monday at 8/7c slot.

9-1-1 will move to an hour earlier and will lead into new fall drama, Prodigal Son. The move is not surprising.

The Resident has proven to be a resilient performer, so the audience should follow it to the new night.

The Masked Singer will fill in for Empire on Wednesdays and will lead into Jason Katims' new drama, Not Just Me.

Fox Orders Four More Dramas, Two More Comedies for 2019-2020 Season

  • Variety
Fox Orders Four More Dramas, Two More Comedies for 2019-2020 Season
The New Fox is ramping up for the 2019-2020 season with six new series pick ups.

The broadcaster handed out orders for four dramas — “Deputy,” “Prodigal Son,” “neXt,” and the untitled Annie Weisman/Jason Katims project — as well as two comedies. One of the comedies is the animated series “The Great North” and the second is the multi-cam “Outmatched,” formerly known as “Geniuses.” These orders join the previously announced straight-to-series orders for the animated comedies “Duncanville” and “Bless the Harts” at Fox.

Each of the newly announced pick ups is a co-production with Fox Entertainment (formerly Fox Broadcasting). The move will allow Fox to maintain a stake in the shows despite not having a vertically-integrated studio like they did before the 21st Century Fox-Disney merger that saw 20th Century Fox Television move under the Disney umbrella. Both “Duncanville” and “Bless the Harts” are co-productions as well. “Duncanville” is produced by Universal Television,
