Hello and happy Tuesday!
Today I’m doing something a little different on my blog and that is talking about some recent TV show news. I couldn’t not talk about this because I am so excited!!!!!!
In the past few days we’ve gotten:
- Amazon adapting Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston!
- Casting for an Asian Alina in the Grishaverse series!
- Veronica Mars Reboot teaser trailer!
- The confirmation and logo of Marvels Falcon & Winter Soldier TV Show!!
Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I saw this news somewhere on Instagram the other night at about 2am and the next morning I immediately went online to see if it’s true and by all accounts it is!
It seems that Amazon Studios and Berlanti Productions bought the rights to this book after a bidding war with some top dogs like Warner Bros studios.
Obviously this is very early in the whole process so no word on production or casting, I don’t even know if this is going to be a movie or a tv show but I am so excited!
I absolutely LOVED this book when I read it recently, and just the thought of being able to watch that in real life makes me so happy!!!

Have I read the Grisha trilogy yet? No I have not.
Am I excited about the live action show coming to Netflix? Absolutely. I’ve even bought the first book so that I can start reading the series.
And recently they announced they were holding auditions for Alina and were looking for an Asian actress to play her! I think this is amazing, I’m looking forward to more representation especially in a fantasy show!
Now I just need to read the books so I can enjoy it as much as everyone else.
Veronica Mars Reboot
The 13 year old me who binged the whole original series and movie is DYING right now. (I mean so is current 16 year old me too)
There’s gonna be eight episodes streaming on Hulu, with the current release date being July 26th! Which means I get to spend my summer holidays watching Veronica Mars! Sign me the fuck up!
We’re going back to Neptune during Spring Break and here is the official synopsis for Season 4
Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.
I am so ready for all of this. I do have to say though if Veronica and Logan aren’t endgame I am going to revolt, I’m talking full on take to the streets with a pick axe.
Falcon & Winter Soldier
I left this one for last because I know all things MARVEL might be getting a bit annoying by now but I had to talk about this because I am so excited!!!
With Disney’s new streaming service there’s going to be even more superhero content with shows featuring out favourite characters like Loki! (We’re getting full episodes of Loki content people!!) and now Falcon & Winter Soldier.
I’ve always loved the frenemies relationship between these two and I’m really hoping they go full action and humour and I’m hoping for a shit load of jokes and sarcasm.
The plots of these shows are going to have lasting impact on the Marvel Universe,
unlike Agents of SHIELD, and people think this series could follow the two of them finding someone to take up the Captain America mantel.
I really don’t care about the plot right now, I’m riding the high of finding out we’re getting more Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie content!!
So yep, that’s everything that has gotten me unreasonably happy in recent days.
Am I overreacting or are other people excited about any of this too? Thanks for reading.
