Cape? Check! Face mask…. check!

The superheroes of The CW are suiting up to battle their biggest enemy yet — COVID-19. 

The CW released posters for its 2021 superhero shows and Black Lightning, The Flash, Black Canary and even BeeBo from Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Superman from the upcoming Superman & Lois, and Stargirl are all donning their face masks. 

It’s not only a sign of the times, but it’s a gentle reminder that it’s important to do your part and wear a mask in public to curb the spread of the virus. 

I guess the idea is if a superhero can fight off the bad guys in one, you can wear it when you go to the store. Each photo features the tagline: “real heroes wear masks.”

Both Supergirl and The Flash wrapped up their seasons ahead of scheduled due to the pandemic that shut down all TV and film productions in mid-March. 

Black LightningStargirl and Legends of Tomorrow were all successfully able to wrap up their seasons. 

Meanwhile, the Superman & Lois series, which piggybacks off of the couple’s appearance in Supergirl and the Arroweverse crossover, scored a straight-to-series order but was unable to film a pilot. 

Of course, the pandemic didn’t just affect past seasons, it also affects upcoming seasons as only a limited number of show’s have been able to resume production with a number of safety protocols in place. 

The production delays forced The CW to delay most of its scripted dramas that usually premiere in the fall to a 2021 release date as part of the spring lineup. This includes Batwoman (with its new lead Javicia Leslie), Charmed, All American, Black Lightning, The Flash, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and Legacies. New show Walker is also being held till midseason as the network hopes the shows can get back on track. 

The network is filling the schedule with completed series’ and streaming shows like Swamp Thing and Tell Me a Story, acquired from DC Universe and CBS All Access, respectively, to fill in the gaps. International shows Dead Pixels and Coroner will also fill out the schedule. 

The only staple series airing new episodes will be the final season of Supernatural, which wrapped up production prior to COVID-19.

Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds

Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds

Watching a show without your dog can be “ruff.”

A new report by Rover.com found that as Americans increased their TV and streaming habits amid the pandemic, they have done so with a furry friend by their side. 

Per the report, 57% of dog parents admitted to waiting for their dog to get into the room before watching a show. 

Now, that isn’t entirely surprising because if you are a dog owner, you know dogs are great watching buddies… unless you have a dog like mine who barks at any animal on the screen. That makes things a bit more difficult, but still proves that he’s attentive! 

The report found that 78% of Americans said they watch TV with their dogs very often or always. 

Surprisingly, dogs were ranked #1 when asked who people prefer to chill out and watch TV with, with 40% of parents saying they’d choose their dog over a partner, friends, or even kids. And that’s because a majority of pet parents believe their pups are actively watching or reacting to what’s happening on the screen. (See my point above about my dog barking at animals on the screen!) 

To make the binge-watching experience that much better for their pets, 70% have admitted to accommodating their pup by allowing them on the couch, giving them blankets, and even moving over so the dog is comfortable. 

60% of pet parents even believe their dog has a favorite TV show, which would explain why 80% of dog parents admit to leaving their TV on for dogs when they’re not home. 

The most popular genres? Comedy and action, which makes sense – after a long day of lounging and taking walks, Fido needs a good laugh or to get invested in a dramatic car chase! 

During such uncertain times, there’s definitely comfort in knowing that you always have a TV buddy by your side! 

And let’s be honest… is there anything your dog isn’t doing with you these days?

Netflix Renews Spanish Drama 'Elite' for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members

We’ve got some elite news!

Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!

The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals. 

Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes. 

The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.

It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021. 

The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up. 

Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.
