Space Sharks

Elsewhere, an experiment aboard a space station breeds humanoid sharks and ambulatory plants in the trailer for Space Sharks starring Eric Roberts and Brinke Stevens.

Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

Speaking to Collider, co-showrunner J.D. Payne discussed season 2’s journey of deception for the Dark Lord Sauron.

You remember in Season 1 how it didn’t end exactly as he would have hoped; Galadriel cast him out, and he’s left with basically nothing. She has the three rings. He has no friends, he has no army, he has no allies, no weapons, basically no resources except for his own cunning. Season 1 was all about the heroes and about setting the table with Galadriel, with the Dwarves, with Númenor, and with Southlanders. Season 2 is gonna be all about the villains, and specifically all about Sauron. We’re going to watch as he uses deception, manipulation, lies, coercion, cunning to start to set the chess pieces in motion . He’s gonna go to this person over here and sort of set this group against that group over there and start using people’s inherent trusts and mistrusts and fears against them to start to set up the situations that are all beneficial to him.

Star Trek: Lower Decks

Ina recent interview with Trek Culture (via Screen Rant), Gabrielle Ruiz stated the “guest star list” will be “sick” in the fifth season of Star Trek: Lower Decks.

The guest star list is sick, okay. The people that are coming in that said yes to do it… [squeals]. I’m just squealing for everybody to find out. And then there’s some additional good girl hang again with T’Lyn and Mariner and Tendi. They let us have that again in a very, very different situation. And I think that episode–it all happens in that same episode, and I can’t wait for that specific episode to air because I think it’s the best one. It’s written the best, the guest star list is the best, the dynamic of us trio [of] girls doing the thing is so much fun.

Psi Cops

A new trailer also reveals the Psi Cops will investigate Bloody Mary next Sunday at midnight on Adult Swim.

The Boys

Finally, The Boys celebrates Christmas in July in the trailer for next week’s episode.
