FX Renews “Archer” for 12th Season Amid High Ratings

Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

It would appear that the planned “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” spinoff live-action series on Disney+ focusing on Cassian Andor just had a pretty major change happen.

If you’ll recall, Disney+ announced plans for this series, which will see Diego Luna returning as Cassian, along with director Tony Gilroy attached. Turns out that Gilroy had to exit the project, and sources are saying it has to do with travel impacted by the ongoing pandemic.
 

Toby Haynes has been announced as stepping in to direct the first three episodes of the series, and we’re interested. With titles like “Black Mirror” episode “USS Callister,” “Sherlock” episode “The Reichenbach Fall,” and a handful of notable “Doctor Who” entries under his belt, we can’t wait to see what Haynes brings to the galaxy far, far away. He was already on the list of expected directors for the Cassian series, so this works out well for the UK production.

While we don’t know much about the show other than it’ll (obviously) be centered on Cassian’s adventures pre-Scariff, we do know that Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, and Kyle Soller are on cast.

Rumors currently have the series beginning filming as early as November of this year at Pinewood Studios in London, which could mean a Disney+ debut in 2021 around the same time? Theoretically, production on the Cassian series would start before the long-rumored Obi Wan Kenobi series, which is slated to begin in early 2021.

We’ll of course let you know what else we hear about this and other Disney “Star Wars” projects.
