The first season finale of Kung Fu airs tonight at 8 on the CW. Will Nicky be able to take back the swords from Zhilan and fully embrace her destiny? The series returns to the CW midseason in 2022.

Manifest may have a shot at a renewal after all. NBC previously canceled the series after three seasons. The series has been in Netflix’s top ten list consistently which made the streamer rethink passing on the series. NBC has also re-entered conversations with Warner Brothers after cancelling their final bubble series, Good Girls, which was expected to return for a final season. Additionally, with the cancellation of the new Law & Order series, NBC has freed up funds and a time slot on the network. Time will tell if the series gets picked up!

Netflix released the first trailer for the upcoming prequel anime The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf. Before Geralt, there was his mentor Vesemir — a swashbuckling young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to slay monsters for coin. But when a strange new monster begins terrorizing a politically fraught kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on a frightening adventure that forces him to confront the demons of his past. Voice cast includes Theo James, Lara Pulver, Graham McTavish and Mary McDonnell. It will be released on Netflix August 23. 

Amazon has ordered Anansi Boys, an adaptation of the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name which features Mr. Nancy, the character from American Gods. It has no relation to the recently canceled Starz adaptation of American Gods. The news comes after Amazon renewed Good Omens, also from Gaiman. 

August 20, Netflix will release the first season of their upcoming comedy series The Chair, starring Sandra Oh. The trailer for the series is out now.

Josh Segarra has joined the cast of Marvel’s She-Hulk. The legal comedy series will air on Disney+ and stars Tatiana Maslany as She-Hulk. It is not clear at the time who Segarra will be playing. 

Netflix has ordered thriller series The Night Agent, based on Matthew Quirk’s book of the same name. In this series, a low level FBI agent gets pulled into a dangerous conspiracy that leads all the way to the Oval Office. The 10 episode season will be run by Shawn Ryan. 

The Creative Arts Emmys will take place Saturday September 11 and Sunday September 12. The two shows will be edited into a single broadcast to air Saturday September 18 at 8 on FXX. The event will feature a limited live audience as opposed to the virtual event last year.
