Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

The Mandalorian returns today, but don’t look for Cara Dune won’t be. While Cara Dune is still alive in the Star Wars universe, Gina Carano and her disgusting thoughts on the Holocaust and transpeople are no longer welcome, thankyouverymuch.

Jon Favreau has offered an explanation of the timeline of The Mandalorian: So the events in seasons one and two take place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (which I guess we already knew, but I think I’d forgotten). The events in seasons one and two took place “over many years” according to Favreau. And now two years have passed since the end of season two and the events in episodes 6 and 7 of The Book of Boba Fett. Confusing? Maybe!

Oh, and apparently, you should watch The Book of Boba Fett to make sense of season three of The Mandalorian. I mean, you don’t have to, there are plenty of spoilers out there that can explain what happened, but it feels like they are supposed to be of a piece. (Here’s someone unhappy about this turn of events, and the whole crossover trend in general. I don’t disagree.)

I have not yet watched last night’s La Brea finale — in fact, I am a solid five episodes behind BUT WHATEVER. But if you have, here’s an interview with David Applebaum, the showrunner, about what you just watched. Spoilers galore, obviously.

Well, The Today Show has finally decided to address the Hoda Kotb thing, and all we know is that she’s dealing with a “family health matter.” OK.

Misha Collins referred to his role on Gotham Knights as “the role of a lifetime” and I am BEGGING my Supernatural fans out there to BE COOL. IT WILL BE OK.

Selena Gomez opened up about losing touch with her Wizards of Waverly Place co-stars on the “Wizards of Waverly Pod” podcast, because she was ashamed of her mental health struggles.

Hey, here’s something new and surprising: racists are mad that Tinkerbell is Black in the new live-action Peter Pan movie coming out in April. (See trailer below.)

There’s a Stranger Things stage play coming out? OK, sure.

A whole bunch of Elvis movies are available to stream on HBO Max as of today, and just in time for Oscar voting.

Reelz is now going to be available to stream on Peacock.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert imagines Disney World under Ron DeSantis’ control and it’s … ~chef’s kiss~:

Congratulations to Jon Hamm and Anna Osceola. The two met when filming the finale of Mad Men, and completely coincidentally, I am sure, Hamm broke up with his long-time partner Jennifer Westfeldt about a month later. Ahem. According to People Magazine, Hamm and Osceola have only been dating for three years, but come on. We’re all adults here. ANYWAY, like I said, congratulations to the happy couple.
