movies leaving netflix right stuff

Leonardo DiCaprio has teamed with National Geographic to develop a TV series adaptation of The Right Stuff, the 1979 book about American test pilots who propelled the space program and became the country’s first astronauts. This will be a scripted series, and DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions will produce.

Charlize Theron in Prometheus

Atomic Blonde star Charlize Theron, no stranger to television thanks to her role on Arrested Development (“Mr. F…”), is returning to the small screen again…briefly. Word is she’ll guest star on Seth MacFarlane‘s Star Trek-inspired live-action spoof comedy sci-fi show The Orville, which will air on Fox. The two previously worked together on A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Con Man Alan Tudyk

Those of you who haven’t bothered to catch up with Firefly duo Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion‘s web series Con Man, which follows the two actors they play make the rounds on the convention circuit while one becomes an A-list star, you’ll now have the opportunity to watch it on television. Syfy has just acquired the first two seasons of the series and will air it on their network in September.

Darkwing Duck 1

Here’s a cool piece of news for anyone looking forward to the DuckTales TV series: voice actor Ben Schwartz revealed that Darkwing Duck will be showing up on the new show. That’ll mark a big difference from the previous iteration of DuckTales, because Darkwing Duck existed in a separate universe when those two shows were on in the ’90s.

And speaking of DuckTales, you can watch a clip from the show’s upcoming pilot movie above. The show debuts on August 12.

Sisters Broad City

Let’s finish off this edition with a trilogy of Comedy Central news bits. First up, Broad City season 4 was originally going to premiere on August 23, but the newest episode of the comedy series will now debut a bit later, on Wednesday, September 13 at 10:30pm. TV Line has what we can expect to see:

“In the new episodes, Abbi and Ilana experience New York City in the winter, get new jobs, celebrate their “friendiversary,” receive a visit from Abbi’s mom, trip on mushrooms, discover their witchdom and travel to Florida.”

Jordan Klepper Opposition

The Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper‘s new talk show, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, now has a premiere date: Monday, September 25, at 11:30pm. The comedian’s new show “will satirize the hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape on both the right and left,” so I’m sure it won’t cause any controversies or offend anyone at all.

And finally, the highly-anticipated new season of Nathan Fielder‘s hilarious series Nathan For You will debut on September 28 after a two-year hiatus. Plus, a week before the season premiere, a one-hour special will air in which Fielder checks in with some guests of past shows to see if his (often ridiculous) advice actually ended up helping their businesses. I came to this show late, but I’m excited about seeing what he has up his sleeve in the new season.
