We’re still recovering from the insanity that is San Diego Comic-Con. Because there are so many movies and TV shows that get promoted at the massive pop culture convention, we simply don’t have the time to report on each and every one of them by attending all the panels that unfolded. But we still wanted to highlight some of the big shows with new footage to show off for fans.

So we’ve rounded up a slew of new trailers for upcoming TV shows, both returning and new programs, ranging from revivals of Nicktoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! to freshman shows like The Orville and Future Man, returning shows like Once Upon a Time and Doctor Who, and plenty more Comic-Con TV trailers from the 2017 convention.

Starz TCA 2016

Starz presented panels to the Television Critics Association today. Starz CEO Chris Albrecht spoke to reporters to make several announcements and take questions. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who produces the Starz series Power, has a new show in development with Starz. “Tomorrow, Today is a terrific superhero-themed series based on a screenplay by Curtis Jackson, our partner in Power,” Albrecht said.

Later, during a panel for Power, Jackson spoke about Tomorrow, Today. “Tomorrow, Today, I wrote that screenplay three times before I actually got a chance to pitch it as a series with new writers around to support it,“ Jackson said.

outlander season 2 trailer

One of the most enjoyable panels I attended this year at Comic Con was for Starz’s Outlander. I’ve never seen an episode of the show, but what I saw at Comic Con, including its insanely charming cast and writers and the footage they previewed, made me want to finally watch the show. The Outlander season 2 trailer makes me, once again, regret I haven’t watched season 1 yet.

Outlander trailer

Battlestar Galactica revamp mastermind Ron Moore has one show, Helix, on the air now, and another premiering later this year. The upcoming one is Outlander, which adapts Diana Gabaldon‘s series of novels about World War II nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) who finds herself bounced back in time to 18th century Scotland. It’s a bit like Brigadoon, but with a more modern air of romance and violence. A new Outlander trailer has hit, and you can get a taste of the Starz show below. Read More »
