Sometimes — just sometimes — fans dig a franchise so much, the creators decide to keep it going


Agatha Harkness: Coven of Chaos


The star of the latest MCU series? It was Agatha all along! Kathryn

Hahn reprises her scene-stealing

WandaVisio­n role as immortal witch Agatha Harkness, who was last seen trapped in the wacky-neighbor role she had used to mess with the Scarlet Witch. As usual, Marvel’s keeping big details under wraps, but we know one of Hahn’s co-stars will be Aubrey Plaza, who previously played a scene-stealing Marvel villain of her own in FX’s trippy Legion.

Will Agatha, like Loki before her, have to reform in order to front her own show, or will Marvel finally spend a whole season on a bad guy?

Justified: City Primeval


For six seasons in the early-tomid-2010s, Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan Givens was the coolest, quippiest, most triggerhap­py lawman on TV, and the story of Justified ended as well as any drama has in recent memory. Now he’s back, but in a miniseries based on a different Elmore Leonard story, set in the great crime novelist’s beloved Detroit. We imagine

Raylan will have many opportunit­ies to think on his best piece of shared wisdom: “If you run into an asshole in the morning, you ran into an asshole. If you run into assholes all day, you're the asshole.”

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

June 2

Because why have one Spider-Man — or even three of them — when you can have dozens?

The sequel to this standout animated Spidey movie once again throws our man Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) into the middle of a whole mess of other web slingers from alternate universes, all of whom are going up against a dimension-traveling Marvel supervilla­in known as the Spot. Jake Johnson and Hailee Steinfeld return as Peter Parker, a.k.a. the OG Spidey, and Gwen Stacy, a.k.a. Spider-Gwen; the

voice talent this time around also includes Daniel Kaluuya (Spider-Punk), Oscar Isaac (Spider-Man 2099), and Issa Rae (Spider-Woman).

Dune: Part 2

Nov. 3

He who controls the sequel controls the universe! Denis Villeneuve is determined to finish what he started and bring the second half of his colossal take on Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic to the biggest screens possible. Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya reprise their roles — as Paul Atreides, future savior of the universe, and Chani, the Fremen warrior who will help him achieve his destiny — as do returning actors Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, and Stellan Skarsgård. Meanwhile, franchise newbies Florence Pugh, Léa Seydoux, Austin Butler, and Christophe­r Walken will be getting fitted for first-time stillsuits as well. If this is even half as epic as the Oscar-winning, world-building Part 1, we’re in for a treat.
