    Netflix has officially announced The Witcher: Blood Origin, a prequel series set 1200 years before their wildly successful The Witcher.

    Today, Netflix announced the development of The Witcher: Blood Origin. It will be set 1200 years before Geralt's story and will tell the origin of the very first Witcher. Additional details have yet to be revealed, though it is clear that The Witcher: Blood Origin will be a 6-part live-action series, and The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich will produce alongside Declan de Barra.

    Per the official logline provided by Netflix, The Witcher: Blood Origin will see the "worlds of monsters, men and elves merged into one." Therefore, it seems like this will be about two different origins: That of the Witchers, as well as the world fans know from the original series. De Barra, who serves as a writer on The Witcher, said about this new show, "A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read ‘The Witcher’ books – What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans?" He continued, "‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ will tell the tale of the Elven civilization before its fall, and most importantly reveal the forgotten history of the very first Witcher." For those interested in the history of the Continent and its civilization, The Witcher: Blood Origin sounds like the perfect series. It'll be interesting to see how the first Witcher ends up comparing to Geralt.

    Considering the scope of The Witcher's fantasy realm, it isn't too surprising that it has yielded its own spin-off. After all, many have compared The Witcher to Game of Thrones, and that series is getting a prequel as well. The Witcher: Blood Origin seems to still be in the early development stages, which means it might be a while before fans get to see it. Before then, though, Netflix will likely prioritize season 2 of The Witcher, which resumes production next month. While it might be a while before these projects end up on fans' screens, at least they can rest assured that they'll be learning a lot more about the Witchers and their world in the future.

    Wilford Brimley, Face of Quaker Oats & Diabetes Campaigns, Dead at 85

    Wilford Brimley -- an iconic actor who was the face of Quaker Oats for years, as well as a spokesperson for diabetes education -- has died ... a rep tells TMZ.

    We're told Brimley passed away Saturday morning at his home in Utah. Sources with direct knowledge of Wilford's health tell us he was in an ICU wing of a hospital on dialysis, and very sick for days.

    Wilford had a lengthy career on camera, dating back to the 1970s with over 70 acting credits. He's perhaps most known for roles in cult classic films like "Cocoon," "The Natural," "The Thing," "Hard Target," and countless other memorable on-screen appearances, big and small.

    Brimley started out as mostly a TV actor, landing one-time roles on TV series like "How the West Was Won," 'Kung Fu,' "The Oregon Trail," and then eventually ... a recurring part on "The Waltons." He went on to star in a bunch of TV movies, such as "The Wild Wild West Revisited," "Amber Waves," "Roughnecks," "Rodeo Girl," 'The Big Black Pill,' and so on.

    In the '80s, he started breaking out into more traditional films, appearing in flicks like "High Road to China," "10 to Midnight," "Tough Enough," "Jackals," "End of the Line," and a bunch of other B-movies where he'd often play an authority figure or a grandfatherly figure with his deep, comforting Southern accent. One of the best character actors without a doubt.

    He went on to star in countless other movies and shows, notably on "Our House," in which he starred in over 40 episodes, as well one-off appearances in hit series like "Walker, Texas Ranger," "Seinfeld," and so many others.

    Folks might remember Wilford more for commercials though over the years -- specifically, his campaigns with Quaker Oats through the '80s and '90s, and maybe even more memorable ... his classic diabetes ads for Liberty Medical -- which was often spoofed, but also beloved.

    Wilford was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus in 1979, and managed the disease ever since then -- obviously, he was very open about it. The American Diabetes Association honored him for his lifetime of advocacy in 2008.

    A rep for Wilford tells TMZ, one of his favorite quotes was from a sign at a blacksmith's shop. It read, "There is nothing made, sold, or done that can't be made, sold, or done cheaper. If price is your only concern, please do business with my competitor."

    He's survived by his wife, Beverly, and his three children.

    Wilford was 85. RIP

    Wilford and Bev were and are my neighbors. They moved in about 8 years ago a few houses down the street from where I've lived since 1990. Wilford was such a jewel of a man, so much fun to be around once you got to know him and realize that his gruff outer shell is only to protect the soft heart inside. He was the best story teller ever! He would always start off on a story and you were never sure it it was a true story or one of his gotcha stories, usually it was a gotcha and you didn't know it until the punchline at the end. He loved to BBQ or smoke meat and he had a huge smoker built in his back yard, he had numerous parties inviting the whole neighborhood to come have some ribs and brisket and I'm telling you what, them was good eats!

    He used to shoe horses for a living way back when and met some Hollywood producer types while shoeing horses they were using in pictures around Southern Utah and that's sorta how he got into show business. He was very opinionated and did not hesitate to tell you which stars were good folks and which ones were weenies and beneath contempt. He loved Robert Duval had nothing but good to say about him and a few others, but most of the Hollywood types he had little use for personally.

    Wilford was a rare combination of a true to life cowboy who could word spar with anyone and win, he was true to himself and a great friend, God I miss you Wilford!

    Reni Santoni, Who Played Poppie on Seinfeld, Dead at 81

    Character actor Reni Santoni, who played Poppie the restaurant owner on Seinfeld, has died at the age of 81, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Santoni passed away Saturday while in hospice care in Los Angeles following years of health problems that included cancer.

    Born in New York City, Santoni gained fame with film roles like Dirty Harry, Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid and Cobra. He also notched TV credits including Hill Street Blues, Moonlighting, Miami Vice and Murder, She Wrote. But he was perhaps best known for his four appearances as Poppie on Seinfeld, beginning with 1994’s “The Pie.”

    In that Season 5 installment, Poppie ran a popular Italian restaurant, but he disgusted Jerry by neglecting to wash his hands after using the bathroom. Santoni returned as Poppie the following season in two episodes: “The Couch,” in which Poppie teams up with Kramer to plan a “make your own pie” pizza business and ruins Jerry’s couch; and “The Doorman.” He also reprised the role of Poppie in the Seinfeld series finale, which saw many of Jerry and the gang’s old enemies return to testify against them in court.

    After Seinfeld, Santoni made guest appearances on shows like Grey’s Anatomy and CSI. His final TV credit was a 2012 episode of Franklin & Bash.

    Disney to Release Mulan on Disney+

    Mulan is one of the most-anticipated films of the year, but the ongoing pandemic has made it difficult to bring the movie to theaters. So far, Disney has been forced to alter the release date for Mulan multiple times as COVID-19 spikes continue to delay its premiere. Now, Disney has confirmed in an investor call that Mulan will stream on Disney+ through a premium access basis that will cost about $30.

    So far, Disney+ aims to release Mulan on September 4th using its new premium access feature. Few details about the feature were given during the call, but its cost was discussed. Users will spend $29.99 to access the feature in order to watch Mulan, and many expect it to work like other VOD services. Disney said it would have another call for investors within the next month to discuss specific details.

    The shocking move comes as a new press release from Disney breaks down its third-quarter losses due to COVID-19. The company reports it has suffered a $3 billion loss because of the pandemic's effect on business. This premium model for Disney+ will help mitigate the box office loss Mulan will take by streaming, but CEO Bob Chapek made it clear Mulan would screen in select theaters.

    According to Chapek, Mulan will be available in theaters in select markets with widely opened theaters. No specific areas were named during the call, but markets like Japan have reopened their theaters in stages within the last month or so.

    This move is a first for Disney and comes as a surprise to many fans. Last month left fans convinced Mulan would be moved back further for a theatrical release following the delay of Tenet by Warner Brothers. Discussion about the live-action Disney flick flared after it was announced Tenet would screen theatrically in select markets, but the idea of it moving to VOD was considered extreme. However, given the new information, Disney has provided about its streaming service's user base, this move could easily work. Chapek confirmed the site has amassed more than 60 million paid users, and those are all potential consumers for Mulan on VOD. That doesn't even account for non-subscribers who would flock to the service to watch the feature at an additional cost.

    At this time, Disney has not made any other announcements about the release dates of any other films. The comic fandom is keeping a close eye on The New Mutants as it is meant to hit theaters later in August. The call did say Disney is treating Mulan as a one-off instance for VOD at this time.

    The Boys Season 2 Casts X-Men's Shawn Ashmore as Lamplighter

    The Boys Season 2 has cast X-Men actor Shawn Ashmore as "Lamplighter," the former member of The Seven who also happens to have some big ties to Billy Butcher and The Boys - including why the group first broke up. As Boys showrunner Eric Kripke says, “We were thrilled that Shawn — who is, let’s be honest, an OG superhero — wanted to play the crucial part of Lamplighter. He brings so much depth, menace, and world-weary humanity to this former member of the Seven. And Shawn is a really good guy. We’re grateful to have him join our bloody little family.”

    Lamplighter was mentioned several times The Boys season 1. It was his "retirement" from The Seven that opened a space for Starlight to join the team, with inferences that he also made big trouble for The Boys squad.

    In terms of powers, Lamplighter is basically The Boys' the parody of DC's Green Lantern, with a pyrokinesis staff that lets him harness open flames and wield them. It's a nice send-up of Ashmore's famous role as Iceman in the X-Men movies, where his powers were (obviously) the elemental opposite. As Kripke points out, Shawn Ashmore is indeed an "O.G." of superhero movie genre - which is why it's going to be so much fun watching him get to cut loose and satirize the genre in The Boys!

    "Lamplighter is a former superstar, a member of the Seven before he left under mysterious circumstances, to be replaced by Starlight. He ties in directly to the Boys' tragic history — he’s actually the reason they broke up 8 years ago. So when he enters their lives again, he dredges up painful memories, pokes at their raw nerves, and changes everything."

    Here's the release date info about The Boys season 2, and it's new aftershow, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys:

    "The second season of the Amazon Original The Boys will premiere on Prime Video with the first three episodes on Friday, September 4, and new episodes available each Friday following, culminating in an epic season finale on October 9.

    The Dirty Dozen Actor Trini Lopez Dies Of COVID-19

    American singer Trini Lopez, who dabbled in acting briefly and appeared as one of the titular characters of The Dirty Dozen in the 1967 film, has passed away. Palm Springs Life magazine reported the news while Variety reports that his death came from complications related to the COVID-19 coronavirus. Lopez was 83. As a singer and musician, Lopez began releasing singles in the late 1950s but found success with his 1963 single "If I Had a Hammer," which hit the #3 position on the Billboard Top 100. He continued to release music well into the 21st century though, releasing his final album "Into the Future" in 2011.

    "Tini Lopez, who has lived in Palm Springs since the 1960s, passed away Aug. 11," Palm Springs Life wrote on Instagram. "His passing comes just after a documentary on his life had wrapped shooting and editing by @pdavidebersole and cohort @airport1975 (Todd Hughes), also Palm Springs residents who created the @houseofcardindoc on @pierrecardinofficiel.??* They had just shown Trini a cut for approval last week."

    Born in Dallas, Texas, Lopez made a name for himself as a musician during the 1960s, earning an induction into the International Latin Music Hall of Fame in 2003 and given a place on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars in 2008. Though his appearances on film were brief, he starred alongside Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, and Charles Bronson in Robert Aldrich's The Dirty Dozen. Lopez also appeared on television including episodes of the 1970s series The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries and Adam-12. As outlined above by Palm Springs Life, a documentary on his life was already in the works before his passing.

    ABBA Will Release 5 New Songs in 2021!

    Among the many pop culture events preempted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, one whose postponement strikes an especially brutal blow is the years-in-waiting reunion of the greatest pop band in human history: ABBA. In 2018, the long-defunct Swedish supergroup announced plans to reconvene with a pair of new songs, which by then had already been written and recorded. ABBA’s reunion would take the form of what was being dubbed an “avatar tour project.” That is, holographic avatars of the bandmates would perform new and old songs in major concert venues throughout 2020.

    While this method of performance would indubitably keep the four members of ABBA safe from infection, all attending fans would be put at tremendous risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19. But there is a silver lining (via Deadline). When the planned touring project does pick up again in 2021 (per its present schedule), three more new songs will grace ABBA’s lineup. This is in addition to the two announced in ’18, which, yet unheard, are named “I Still Have Faith In You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down.” (Both very ABBA-sounding titles, don’t you think?)

    This will be the first new music from ABBA since the band’s breakup in 1983, following the divorces of bandmates Agnetha Fältskog and Björn Ulvaeus and bandmates Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. Marital fissures aside, the four pillars of ABBA are clearly devoted once again to bringing their bright and bouncy tunes to the listening public. Perhaps the band has taken notice of the world’s ongoing affection for their music, as showcased by films like the newly released Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga and the newly announced third Mamma Mia venture.

    Whatever it was that inspired the members of ABBA to treat the world to their inimitable brand of music for the first time in 35 years, we’re thankful for it.
