The Batwoman crowd continues to grow! We recently learnt that Robin Givens would be joining as Jada Jet, who we theorize might be Ryan's birth mother who we found out was still alive. We know from her description that she has a son, and we now have confirmation that he will also be making an appearance as a series regular for the next season. Nick Creegan, of Law & Order: Organized Crime, and David Makes Man fame, will be joining as Marquis Jet. The character is described as:
A sexy playboy who grew up in a lavish lifestyle, Marquis is too charming for his own good and wields his power with a ne’er do well attitude. He views life as one big joke and that sense of recklessness has a tendency to clash horribly with his no-nonsense mother Jada Jet. When he meets Ryan, he sees in her a like-minded young go-getter who like him is just waiting for the right opportunity to make his mark on Gotham.

As the only CW DC show that was slated to appear at Comic Con At Home, we knew we'd be getting some news, so let's dive into it. There's three main takeaways to the event so we'll take it by parts.
We still have a third of the season to go through. To date we've seen ten episodes, and five more remain, so the trailer shows what we can expect. We can see that Sara and Ava's nuptials will be interrupted by none other than Bishop, plus some scenes for next episode's bowling adventure, some hallucinogenic mushroom trip, and the bulk of it is also spent taking a look at Constantine's descent into dark magic that is putting the rest of the Legends in danger. Check it out here:
Speaking of Constantine, it looks like his time in the Waverider is coming to an end. It's a well-known fact, both in the show's canon and outside of it, that the cast has largely changed over the years, bringing in a wide roster of people and then watching them leave when their stories were finished, whether for a short stint or a long haul. We knew that Dominic Purcell would be leaving after this season, and while it seems that Constantine will be leaving too, Matt Ryan will be staying. He will instead be playing a whole new character, that of Dr. Gwyn Davies, an eccentric scientist from the early 20th century who might be the team’s only hope next season. Ryan had this to say on the change:
As everyone who loves him knows, in the end, John Constantine will walk his path alone. The time has come for John to part ways with the Legends, and for me to part ways with John. I’m really excited to be creating this new role on the show and having some fun with it — discovering how this new character fits in and causes some trouble for the Legends.
Season 7 will also be providing a new change, that of Gideon. The AI has been a constant throughout the show, helping the Legends with pertinent information, quips, and sometimes appearing as a human form. Though it looks like this time, Gideon will be taking a human form for season 7.She will be played by Amy Louise Pemberton, who has been providing the voice for the character for the past 6 seasons.
Lastly, the show will be releasing a Mixtape of sort, a compilation of 21 songs from the show until now.

Straight out of Comic Con at Home is the exciting news that we won't have to wait long for the final season of Lucifer. Netflix released the information today alongside a video showing the journey all of the characters have taken these past five seasons. Season 6, which is set to be the last season of Lucifer, has already completed shooting for some months, and after the whirlwind that was the end of 5b, we are all very interested to know what this season will hold.
As for what we can expect, showrunner Joe Henderson said:
There is so much to explore when you actually get to the moment where you think you’re done, you think you’ve become the person you’re been trying to become.

As we get closer and closer to the end, the synopses are growing vaguer. For the penultimate episode, it looks like Lois is worried about Jordan's closeness to Sarah, and Jon spending more time with John Henry. From what we can tell with this synopsis and the trailer, we'll be focusing on the fallout and the people behind the action. It's easy for the shows to focus on the big fights, but to focus on checking in with the humanity of our heroes is something that the show seems to be doing quite well. Check out the synopsis:
THE HEART OF SMALLVILLE – Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) is worried about Jordan (Alex Garfin) as he and Sarah (Inde Navarrette) continue to grow closer. Meanwhile, Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) pays Lana (Emmanuelle Chriqui) a visit. Lastly, Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) has been spending more and more time with John Henry (Wole Parks). Erik Valdez, Dylan Walsh and Adam Rayner also star. (#114). The episode was directed by Alexandra La Roche and written by Max Cunningham & Brent Fletcher. Original airdate 8/10/2021.

Stargirl's return is all but upon us, and that means that we're now getting synopses! First up for season 2 is summer break and summer school. It seems that Courtney has been focusing on her hero life a lot. So much so that her personal and school life has taken a toll. So the solution is going to be a family vacation, courtesy of Pat. The rest of the JSA have their own things to contend with, setting up the stage for what is sure to be another amazing season. Check out the full synopsis below:
SCHOOL’S OUT — With summer break around the corner, Pat (Luke Wilson) suggests the family take a vacation after seeing that Courtney (Brec Bassinger) has been spending too much time focused on being Stargirl and not enough time on her schoolwork. Meanwhile, as Beth (Anjelika Washington) attempts to reconnect with Chuck, she stumbles upon a major secret her parents have been keeping from her. Elsewhere, Yolanda (Yvette Monreal) continues to be haunted by Brainwave’s death, and Rick (Cameron Gellman) secretly tracks Solomon Grundy after suspecting he may still be in the area. Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Hunter Sansone and Meg DeLacy also star. Andi Armaganian directed the episode written by Geoff Johns (#201). Original airdate 8/10/2021.

We know from the trailer that the Legends' next challenge will be bowling, but the synopsis manages to shine some more light on how they got there, and how they could get out, and it seems simple enough: Spooner, Sara, Astra, and Mick were transported to a cosmic bowling alley, and the only way out is to beat the reigning champs. Less simple is the fact that they are probably not in their element, if the trailer was any indication. Check out the full synopsis below:
STRIKE ZONE – When the Legends track down another Alien pod, they find a device that transports them to a cosmic bowling alley. Before consulting Sara (Caity Lotz), Astra (Olivia Swann) and Rory (Dominic Purcell), Spooner (Lisseth Chavez) makes a bet against the reigning champs for a ride back to the Waverider, but not everyone is happy about the plan when they realize what they are up against. Elsewhere, Nate (Nick Zano) plans a romantic date for him and Zari (Tala Ashe), but nothing goes as planned. Meanwhile, Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) and Gary (Adam Tsekham) try to distract Ava (Jes Macallan), from what’s going on with wedding planning. Matt Ryan also stars. Jes Macallan directed the episode written by James Eagan & Ray Utarnachitt (611). Original airdate 8/8/2021.

One final break before Superman & Lois wrap up their first season, and it's thankfully a short one. Once the show returns for its final two episodes on August 10th, it'll be to try to figure out Edge's endgame plan. It looks like his Eradicator plan will be out in full force, and it also seems like we'll be focusing a lot on how the other characters are dealing with everything that's been happening, from Lois to the Cushings. Check out the trailer below:
