Young Sheldon Season 6 Immediately Walks Back S5’s Big Bang Theory Change

Published

on

Young Sheldon season 6 image reveals that it is already walking back on a huge The Big Bang Theory change introduced in the season 5 finale.

A new image from Young Sheldon season 6 reveals that it is immediately walking back on its The Big Bang Theory change introduced in the season 5 finale. CBS’ premier comedy is back in production after its mandatory summer hiatus. So while no official marketing material has been released, behind-the-scenes content offers some idea of what to expect from Young Sheldon season 6, including what’s next for Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage).

In Young Sheldon season 5, Sheldon was noticeably sidelined for the most part of its run. Instead, the CBS series opted to diversify its storytelling by putting the focus on other members of the Cooper family. It wasn’t until the Young Sheldon season 5 finale that Sheldon became the center of its narrative once again as he developed a fear of the future. Sheldon reached out to Missy (Raegan Revord) who helped him be more hopeful about the future. Their conversation led to him deciding to adopt a new aesthetic, ditching his bow and tie combo and sporting his first Flash shirt instead, which was styled the same way he wore them in The Big Bang Theory.

Coming back after the break, this may no longer be the case as a new Young Sheldon season 6 image shows Sheldon wearing his more formal attire again. In the snap, the boy genius joins Mary (Zoe Perry) and Missy as they attend Sunday service in their church. The photograph doesn’t reveal any context as to when this is actually happening, but regardless of when this scene actually lands in the timeline, it’s interesting that Sheldon would immediately decide to ditch his new wardrobe. It makes the Young Sheldon season 5 finale The Big Bang Theory Easter egg feel like a cheap ploy to reference the geek-centric sitcom. Narratively, it doesn’t really make sense that Sheldon’s grown-up sartorial choices were born after his conversation with Missy about his fears of the future.


Why Sheldon Is No Longer Wearing His Big Bang Theory Flash T-Shirt

Reinforcing the idea that the Flash shirt in Young Sheldon season 5 finale was nothing more but a cheap way to incorporate The Big Bang Theory in its spin-off storytelling is show producer Steve Molaro’s comment regarding it. On the heels of the episode, the series co-writer revealed that “it is not a permanent wardrobe change, but it is an addition to his wardrobe.” While there’s no issue with Sheldon expanding his wardrobe, his decision to choose something so colorful and even tacky contradicts his whole aesthetic in Young Sheldon which has been more formal and proper. It also doesn’t symbolize any other change in his characteristic, so there’s really no concrete reason for Sheldon to start wearing logo t-shirts moving forward. If anything, dressing him similarly to Jim Parsons’ The Big Bang Theory version of Sheldon would only be a reminder that Young Sheldon‘s end is somehow pre-determined. 


It’s curious if Young Sheldon season 6 will see Sheldon wearing his Flash shirt again. Since The Big Bang Theory spin-off’s decision to change up the boy genius’ wardrobe doesn’t make a lot of sense, they will have to find a way to justify this new look for him. Perhaps he only brings the comic book tees when something specific happens to him. In the meantime, Sheldon will continue sporting his bow and shirt combo moving forward. 

Young Sheldon will return for season 6 on CBS.

Jenna Ortega Shares How The Wednesday Team Made Up Thing Language

Published

on

Exclusive: Jenna Ortega shares how Wednesday’s creative team made up Thing’s language and mannerisms, explaining that they were invented on the spot.


Wednesday‘s Jenna Ortega reveals how Thing’s language was established by the show’s creative team. Last week saw the highly anticipated premiere of Wednesday, Netflix’s new Addams Family spinoff series. Starring Jenna Ortega as the titular character, the show finds Wednesday enrolling in the mysterious Nevermore Academy and getting caught up in various mysteries. While Wednesday features a few appearances from prominent Addams Family characters, like Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Gomez (Luis Guzmán), their roles are kept relatively small. The exception here is Thing, the family’s disembodied hand, who takes on the part of Wednesday’s silent sidekick as she navigates boarding school.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Ortega now shares how the Wednesday creative team designed Thing’s physical language on set. Throughout the series, Thing communicates with Wednesday using gestures and movements to convey thoughts and emotions. According to Ortega in an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, actor and magician Victor Dorobantu, who portrays the sentient hand in the series, worked with the team during filming to come up with the mannerisms on the spot. She also elaborates on the whole process of creating the special effect, explaining:

It was so funny, because the Thing language was just made up on the day. Every day we’d show up and go, “Ahhh…” [hand motions] “That looks right. I feel like I kind of know what he’s saying.” But Tim wanted it to be an actual actor like they did in the 90s films, so it was this magician named Victor [Dorobantu]. He would wear a full blue suit, and he would hide behind walls and underneath beds. Then they built this prosthetic on top of his hand so that it looked like a wrist knob, and he would walk around. Tim really liked his mannerisms, and he would spend hours in hair and makeup every day just getting that hand on. Then we’d shoot some stuff with him, and other times we would shoot with absolutely nothing there. We’d shoot with the stand-in hand there; never did the tennis ball. I was either working with an actor and responding to him or I was looking at nothing, and then at the end of every take, we would have to bring in these gray and silver balls and a color chart so that they could add CGI. Those scenes always took longer because of that.


How Addams Family Members Can Be More Prevalent In Wednesday Season 2

Though a second season has yet to be confirmed, Wednesday season 1 has already received generally positive reviews, which bodes well for the show’s future. The Wednesday showrunners have confirmed they have multiple seasons planned in case they get the greenlight, so the series could have a long run ahead. While Thing was prominently featured throughout Wednesday season 1, season 2 could be an opportunity to shine more of a spotlight on the rest of the Addams family. Since season 1 ended with Wednesday getting expelled from Nevermore Academy, the door is now open for a new setting or backdrop to Wednesday’s adventures in season 2, which could possibly feature more of the Addams family homestead.

Another potential avenue for Wednesday season 2 is a deeper exploration of the character’s new powers. In season 1, Principal Weems (Gwendoline Christie) reveals to Wednesday that the visions she has started experiencing have been passed onto her by her mother, Morticia. Wednesday’s visions are a new addition to the character in this version, and a season 2 could use this ability to focus more on her family ties and how Morticia’s and Wednesday’s shared powers will play into the younger Addams’ fate.

Wednesday has received a lot of attention so far, breaking records on Netflix by surpassing Stranger Things season 4 for most hours watched in a week. Audiences may be eager to see more of Zeta-Jones, Guzmán, and Fred Armisen as Uncle Fester, while some viewers may have also felt the absence of the family favorite, Cousin Itt. With a wealth of preexisting material in addition to the new world Wednesday season 1 has already built, the possibilities are endless for bringing in more classic Addams Family characters for a potential season 2.

Ryan Eggold, Isaiah Mustafa Join Aldis Hodge in Alex Cross Series at Amazon

Published

on

Ryan Eggold and Isaiah Mustafa have been cast in Amazon’s upcoming series based on James Patterson’s Alex Cross novels.

The pair join previously announced series lead Aldis Hodge in the series, which is titled “Cross.” Amazon ordered the show to series in October.

“Cross” is described as thriller mystery series. Per the official logline, “Alex Cross is a detective and forensic psychologist, uniquely capable of digging into the psyches of killers and their victims, in order to identify—and ultimately capture—the murderers.”

Eggold will play Ed Ramsey. The character is said to have “humble Midwest roots that are the core of his irresistible charm, but he’s got elbows sharp enough to carve out space in the elite social and political circles of DC and New York. Smooth, well connected, and devious, Ramsey can also be physically imposing when he needs to be – and he has some very dark secrets. While he’s initially a fan of Cross’s, he soon becomes a formidable adversary.”

Mustafa will play John Sampson, also known as “Two-John” and “Man-Mountain.” Sampson is described as “Alex’s partner on the force and best friend of 30 years. Full of swagger and larger than life, he believes that Cross is at a crisis point in his life and needs to seek professional help.”

Eggold currently stars in the NBC medical drama “New Amsterdam,” which is airing its fifth and final season at present. He is also known for his role in the NBC drama “The Blacklist” and the spinoff series “The Blacklist: Redemption.” His other notable credits include The CW series “90210” as well as films like “BlacKkKlansman” and “Fathers and Daughters.”

He is repped by Gersh, Entertainment 360, and Hirsch Wallerstein.

Mustafa is known for starring in the cult hit Freeform series “Shadowhunters” and in films like “IT: Chapter Two” and “Murder at Yellowstone City.” He got his big break onscreen in the Old Spice “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” advertising campaign, which was very well received by the public.

He is repped by APA, Megan Silverman Management, and Yorn Levine.

Variety exclusively reported that “Cross” was in the works in January 2020. Ben Watkins is writing and executive producing the series, and will also serve as showrunner. Hodge is a producer in addition to starring. Sam Ernst, Jim Dunn, and Craig Siebels also executive produce, with Patterson, Bill Robinson, and Patrick Santa executive producing for James Patterson Entertainment. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost executive produce for Skydance Television. Paramount Television Studios and Skydance are producing.

Billie Eilish Addresses Euphoria Season 3 Casting Rumors

Published

on

Billie Eilish clarifies social media rumors claiming that she will make an appearance in the upcoming Euphoria season 3 on HBO.


Pop sensation Billie Eilish addresses the rampant rumor claiming she was joining the cast of Euphoria season 3. Earlier this year, a viral tweet from an account posing as an entertainment update page reported that Eilish had been cast in season 3 of the Sam Levinson-created teen series as Nate Jacob’s (Jacob Elordi) latest love interest. Though no official sources confirmed the news at the time, social media was instantly flooded with speculation surrounding Eilish’s potential burgeoning acting career that would see her appear in one of the biggest dramas currently airing.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Now, in her annual interview with Vanity Fair, Eilish clears up the rumor that she will appear on Euphoria season 3 alongside Zendaya and Elordi. Though the pop star grew up in Los Angeles where she tried her hand at acting under the guidance of a family of performance artists, Eilish has made it clear that the offer to appear on the HBO show, though tempting, never came her way. Check out what she had to say below:

“[The biggest rumor about me is that] I’m in the third season of Euphoria. That’s not true. I’d like to be. Euphoria’s fucking fire.”

Why Billie Eilish Would Be Perfect For Euphoria

Though Eilish has made it clear she is only a fan of Euphoria rather than one of its incoming stars, her public image and the thematic interests she has explored through songwriting would make her a natural addition to the darkly cinematic teen series. Not only has Eilish’s music been featured on the show, but her depictions of the specific type of teenage angst that is particular to the Gen-Z era reflect many of the same modern struggles that Euphoria has explored since its 2019 release. Both breakout sensations, Eilish and Euphoria, have come to prominence for their ability to create moving art out of the pain and conflict of the teenage experience during an era that has seen a rise in technology and adolescent addiction, making a collaboration or cameo seem more fitting than it may appear at face value.

Everything We Know About Euphoria Season 3

With Euphoria quickly becoming one of HBO’s most watched shows, second only to Game of Thrones, it should come as no surprise that the series was renewed for a season 3 following the dramatic eight-part second season that saw protagonist Rue try to maintain her sobriety amidst a new friendship with Eliot that threatened her relationship with Jules. Additionally, best friends Maddie and Cassie endured a ruthless falling out that came to physical blows in the season 2 finale. While filming for Euphoria season 3 is not expected to begin until February 2023, the cast and Levinson have teased some of what fans can expect. Similarly to the show’s first two seasons, Euphoria season 3 is expected to contain 8 episodes that various cast members have teased will explore even darker storylines, which Zendaya has expressed she hopes will extend into an exploration of the characters once they graduate from high school and enter their collegiate years.

Though Eilish hasn’t joined the show’s upcoming season, viewers can still expect a cast shakeup. Following speculation of on-set tension between cast member Barbie Ferrera and Levinson, Ferreira took to Instagram to announce she would not be reprising her role as the vibrant fan-favorite Kat. Furthermore, though there was talk of lead Zendaya, who now has 2 Emmys under her belt for her depiction of Rue, leaving the show after season 2, she has been confirmed to return to the series alongside the rest of its central cast. The biggest cliffhanger that Euphoria season 3 is expected to address is the possible death of Ashtray and Fezco’s impending prison stay. How Euphoria answers the open-ended questions it has posed and deals with its evolving central cast will only become clear when season 3 hits HBO.
