Adult Swim has ended its association with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. The series will continue as the crew is currently working on season seven. The voice roles will be recast. 

Michael Cudlitz has joined the cast of Superman & Lois. Cudlitz will play Lex Luthor in the upcoming third season. The new season will premiere on The CW March 14. 

Anime series Make My Day premieres on Netflix February 2. The snowy, ice-covered planet Coldfoot is home to a precious energy-rich ore called “Sig.” On the surface, the planet seems to be a crime-free utopia, but in reality prisoners are used for back-breaking Sig mining. Jim, a young prison guard, rushes to the site of a sudden mining accident to find a mysterious creature attacking the humans. 

Animated series Kiff premieres on Disney Channel March 10 and March 15 on Disney+. The buddy-comedy series is about an optimistic squirrel Kiff and her chill bunny bestie Barry. Kimiko Glenn stars in the titular role of Kiff, whose thirst for life takes her on countless adventures through their city alongside Barry, voiced by H Michael Croner.

NBC has given a pilot order to Wolf inspired by the extraordinary life and work of Oliver Sacks. The potential series follows a revolutionary, larger-than-life neurologist and his team of interns as they explore the last great frontier, the human mind, while also grappling with their own relationships and mental health. 

Too Hot to Handle: Germany will premiere on Netflix February 28. The hottest German-speaking singles come together in a tropical paradise for what they think will be the most exotic and erotic time of their lives – but there’s a twist. These commitment-phobes who love a casual hook-up will have to give up all sexy touching for the entire retreat if they want to win the €200,000 grand prize. No kissing, no heavy petting, and no self-gratification of any kind. With every slip, the prize money goes down. In this luxury no-bone zone, will the serial singletons be able to form deeper emotional connections? Or will the temptation simply be too hot to handle? 

Jai Courtney, Kyle Bradley Davis, Dane DeHaan, Betty Gilpin, Nick Hargrove, Derek Hinkey, Saura Lightfoot Leon, Preston Mota, Shawnee Pourier, Joe Tippett, and Shea Whigham have been cast in Netflix’s upcoming limited series American Primeval. They join Taylor Kitsch in the six episode series. 

Homicide Hunter: American Detective returns January 25 on ID. Lt. Joe Kenda trades in his own case files to bring viewers astounding investigations from across the country, with each episode profiling a different homicide detective whose tireless efforts helped bring justice for the victim. Presented by the riveting raconteur whose gruff voice and witty commentary keep us hanging on every word, Joe Kenda guides us through the complex twists and turns of each case and the dogged detective work it took to solve the seemingly unsolvable. 

Cold Justice returns February 25 on Oxygen. Working alongside local law enforcement, the groundbreaking investigative series follows prosecutor Kelly Siegler and her rotating team of seasoned detectives Steve Spingola, Tonya Rider and Abbey Abbondandolo as they travel to small towns to dig into unsolved homicide cases that have lingered for years without answers or justice for the victims. Bringing fresh eyes, valuable resources and key experts, Kelly and her team have an unparalleled success rate and one of the most recent arrests can be seen in this upcoming batch of episodes. 

Showtime’s docuseries The 12th Victim premieres February 17. The series sheds new light on the infamous 1958 Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate murder case, in which the teenage couple was charged and convicted of brutally killing 11 victims at random. Told through a stylistic blend of archival and recreated footage and countless film and television series inspired by the killings, the series reexamines Fugate’s guilty verdict, who was 14 years old at the time of the killings, through a modern lens, questioning the media and judicial system’s treatment of her despite her self-proclaimed innocence.
