Hey, remember how there was going to be a Walking Dead spinoff about Carol and Daryl? And it was announced like two years ago, and everyone was like, “cool, but I guess this means we know now that Carol and Daryl survive the series finale of The Walking Dead?” Yeah, well, apparently Melissa McBride has been cut from the series, and it will focus on Daryl instead. WATCH YOUR BACK, CAROL.
This is interesting: Love, Victor, the teen series about a high schooler who is questioning his sexuality, was originally bought by Disney. Disney then decided against premiering it on Disney+ because it ostensibly dealt with mature issues like teen sexuality and alcohol use. Instead, the show moved to Hulu, where it was very successful. The third and final season, however, will debut on BOTH Hulu and Disney+, and I can’t wait to see the right-wingers’ heads explode. While I would like to believe this is part of Disney trying to do better in the wake of the whole Florida LGBTQ kerfuffle, the truth of the matter is that when Disney moved the Netflix Marvel series onto Disney+, they built in stricter parental controls on the platform. As a result, I assume they feel like they can now safely put content like Love, Victor on the streamer without stirring up too much outrage.
As for Florida trying to cancel Disney’s special district in Orlando, Disney is like, “LOL, TRY IT.” They are unbothered.
Jared’s OK, everyone!
Hey y’all! I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love. I’m definitely on the mend and hoping to return to filming later this week.
