KAOS premieres August 28 on Netflix. Jeff Goldblum plays Zeus: king of the Gods, ruler of the world. He’s cruel, stylish and all-powerful. That is, until he’s not. Having long enjoyed his status as King of The Gods, Zeus’ reign has never been truly threatened. That is until he wakes up one morning and discovers a wrinkle on his forehead. Believing it to be the harbinger of an ancient prophecy which foretells his destruction, neurosis sets in: Zeus becomes convinced his fall is coming. As his paranoia takes hold, the God of Gods – seeing signs everywhere – starts to dangerously self-destruct. 

Apple TV+ has canceled The Big Door Prize after two seasons. Based on M.O. Walsh’s novel, the second season followed the residents of Deerfield as the Morpho machine readied them for the mysterious “next stage.” As everyone’s potentials are exchanged for visions, new relationships form and new questions are asked.

Will Forte has joined the cast of The Four Seasons. He joins previously announced cast members Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Colman Domingo, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Erika Henningsen in the Netflix series. The series is based on the 1981 feature film of the same name that was written and directed by Alan Alda, produced by Martin Bregman, and starred Alda and Carol Burnett. 

Anime series Tonbo! will return for a second season. The new season, which streams on Prime Video in English Sub and Dub, will premiere in October. 

Dominic Rains is exiting NBC’s Chicago Med. Rains, who played Dr. Crockett Marcel, has been with the medical series for the last five seasons. 

Jacob Derwig, Elise Schaap, Jade Olieberg, Jesse Mensah and Yannick van de Velde have joined the cast of Amsterdam Empire. They join Famke Janssen in the Netflix series. Jack van Doorn, the rich and notorious founder of the coffee shop empire Jackal, has had to fight his entire career against criminals, competitors, and absurd Dutch laws to become the biggest of them all. When his affair with a well-known journalist comes to light, it turns out that his most dangerous enemy has been living under his roof all this time: his betrayed wife, Betty, an ex-pop diva who knows all his weak spots and secrets and will not rest until she has taken everything from him. The series will premiere in 2025. 

History series Prison Chronicles premieres July 29 on History. The series takes you inside some of the world’s most notorious prisons. Every episode delves into the unique history of a specific prison, showcasing its wildest practices, infamous inmates, harrowing events, and ingenious escapes. Spanning 1,000 years, the series covers legendary institutions from the historic Tower of London to today’s high-tech ADX, where El Chapo is currently held. Through interviews with journalists, former correctional officers, and previously incarcerated individuals, the series offers an authentic glimpse into the inner workings of these prisons.
