If, like me, you’ve spent all weekend knitting Baby Yoda’s for your Etsy store, know that Disney is coming after you. A number of Etsy sellers have found their Mando baby products have been delisted by the site. If you want to support these craftspeople, you’ll now have to search for “The Baby Child” and other similar names.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is plotting her next TV series. She’s just signed a deal with Apple TV+, which will be where her next show will be. Her deal is for projects she will produce, but also for projects she wants to star in.
New Walking Dead spin-off The Walking Dead: World Beyond is not planned as an ongoing series. Instead, it will be a 20-episode show told over two seasons. This makes all the sense in the world to me - nobody needs every Walking Dead series to be a continued nihilistic story which reboots its interests every few seasons. Shorter run complete stories using The Walking Dead brand is actually kind-of appealing to this long-lapsed viewer.
