battlestar galactica reboot

There’s a new Battlestar Galactica reboot in the works, and it might end up being more familiar than expected. Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail is developing the new Battlestar for the upcoming NBC streaming service Peacock, and according to Ronald D. Moore, who created the previous Battlestar reboot, Esmail’s series might be set in the same universe as Moore’s. And that makes a certain sense based on how Moore’s show ended. Spoilers for the 2004-2009 Battlestar Galactica reboot follow.

homecoming season 2

If you were hoping to see Julia Roberts in Homecoming season 2, I have some bad news. While Roberts will remain an executive producer on the fantastic Amazon series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, she won’t be returning to play her season 1 character Heidi Bergman.
