The Wheel of Time isn’t going anywhere. The Prime Video fantasy saga, based on Robert Jordan’s best-selling novels, has been renewed for a third season, it was announced Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con.

“I’m so thrilled that we’ll be making a third season of The Wheel of Time,” said Rafe Judkins, executive producer and showrunner, in a statement. “The Shadow Rising has always been my favorite book in the series, so being able to bring it to television and introduce new audiences to the stories that made me fall in love with these books in the first place is such an honor, and something I’ve been working toward since I first pitched the show years and years ago.”

“We are so excited to dive deeper into the world of The Wheel of Time with Rafe Judkins and his team, who have done such a marvelous job of honoring Robert Jordan’s vision and delivering an incredible viewing experience to Prime Video customers,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios. “Season 1 resonated with the most loyal of Jordan devotees, as well as the uninitiated, who were experiencing this incredible world for the first time, proving this is a show that truly stands out in the genre space. We couldn’t be happier to give fans more reasons to be excited about the show and bring more The Wheel of Time to our customers worldwide.”

“Initially, people around the globe fell in love with Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time books and now thanks to Rafe Judkins and his incredible team that epic world has vividly been brought to life on Prime Video,” said Jeff Frost, president of Sony Pictures Television and Jason Clodfelter, co-president of Sony Pictures Television in a joint statement. “We are so pleased to be able to continue the journey and deliver this remarkable story to fans around the world. Sony Pictures Television is proud to continue its partnership with Amazon Studios as we move toward season 3.”

Jennifer Hudson threw out one of rarest first pitches in baseball

Published

on

Call her an actor-singer-pitcher.

Once again proving there’s not much she can’t do, Jennifer Hudson added a perfect first pitch ahead of the Kansas City Royals game on Tuesday to a résumé that already includes an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award.

Hudson lobbed up what the Major League Baseball Twitter account called “the best eephus pitch” they’ve seen this season ahead of the Royals’ home game against the Chicago White Sox.

An eephus pitch is a super slow, high-arcing pitch that is meant to throw off a batter’s timing and is rarely seen in a big-league game. Hudson lollipopped her pitch right over the plate as the Royals mascot, Sluggerrr, called it a strike while posing as the umpire.

Hudson, 40, celebrated by pointing to the crowd and doing a little shimmy on the mound. She also did it in style in a Royals jersey and denim jumpsuit.

Celebrities throwing out the first pitch need to bring their A-game these days, as Hudson’s strike follows a memorable first pitch by Olympic gold medalist Suni Lee before a Minnesota Twins game last week.

The star gymnast flipped head over heels before throwing her pitch, putting her up in the first pitch pantheon with Team USA teammate Simone Biles, who did a twisting backflip in 2019 before a first pitch at a Houston Astros game.

Tom Hanks also had a first pitch to remember in April when he reunited with Wilson from “Cast Away” before a Cleveland Guardians game.

Olivia Newton-John’s Husband John Easterling Remembers Her as ‘Most Courageous Woman’ in Heartfelt Tribute

Published

on

Olivia Newton-John’s husband, John Easterling, is sharing a heartfelt tribute to his late wife, just two days after her passing. She was 73 years old.

Easterling took to Newton-John’s Instagram account, where he posted a photo of the pair along with a touching message addressed to the singer-actress.

“Olivia, Our love for each other transcends our understanding. Every day we expressed our gratitude for this love that could be so deep, so real, so natural. We never had to ‘work’ on it. We were in awe of this great mystery and accepted the experience of our love as past, present and forever,” Easterling began.

Easterling, who married Newton-John back in 2008, called the Grease star “the most courageous woman” he’s ever known, adding that she genuinely cared for all the world’s people, nature and its creatures.

“At Olivia’s deepest essence she was a healer using her mediums of song, of words, of touch. She was the most courageous woman I’ve ever known. Her bandwidth for genuinely caring for people, for nature and all creatures almost eclipses what is humanely possible,” he added. “It is only the grace of God that has allowed me to share the depth and passion of her being for so long. In her most difficult times she always had the spirit, the humor, and the will power to move things into the light.”

Though still in the midst of her painful loss, Easterling said that his heart is “healed” by the joy of her love.

“Even now as her soul soars, the pain and holes in my heart are healed with the joy of her love and the light that shines forward,” Easterling wrote before concluding the message by thanking Newton-John’s fans, friends and colleagues for their love and support. “Our family deeply appreciates the vast ocean of love and support that has come our way. Onward Ho, John Easterling.”

Easterling broke the news of his wife’s passing Monday morning in an announcement shared to Instagram, writing alongside a photo of the actress, “Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends.”

“Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer,” the statement continued. “Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the @onjfoundation.”

Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, also shared a tribute to her late mother. In addition to several shots of her and her mom, Lattanzi posted a special behind-the-scenes video from their iconic 2021 duet. Lattanzi took to Instagram Tuesday to share a clip of the pair singing “Window in the Wall,” a song that brought the late actress out of retirement and back in the studio.

The video sees the mother-daughter duo recording the track, sharing special moments in the studio and collaborating on the moving melody.

“You are my lighthouse mama. My safe place. My heart space. It has been my honor and continues to be my honor to be your baby and best friend,” Lattanzi wrote alongside the video. “You are an angel on earth and everyone touched by you has been blessed. I love you forever my life giver, my teacher, my mama.”

Newton-John’s long-term battle with cancer began in 1992 when she went public with her first diagnosis of breast cancer. She went on to fund the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia, and had been a fierce advocate for cancer treatment and research. A state funeral in Newton-John’s home country of Australia is set to take place to celebrate Newton-John’s “music and film and all the other amazing contributions that she made” to the world.
