Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go! is arguably the most entertaining superhero show on TV (and inarguably the most divisive), but now Warner Bros. has confirmed that it’s bringing the songs about waffles, the important lessons about real estate, and the very rare instances of actual crimefighting action to theaters with Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

Before now, the studio had only offered vague teases about the project’s existence, but a Twitter account launched today that revealed the movie’s full title and main voice cast. The core Teen Titans cast will thankfully be there—meaning each use of “booyah” will sound the way it’s supposed to—but the cast list also featured two new names: Will Arnett and Kristen Bell.

NBC’s afterlife comedy ended its first season with Eleanor and her Good Place buddies getting their memories wiped by the dastardly Michael, but Season 2 won’t feel like a rerun, creator Michael Schur assures us. “You’re not going to see Season 1 happen again slowly over the course of Season 2,” he notes, adding that Eleanor is “immediately sort of suspicious and aware of the fact that there’s something amiss,” thanks to the note she left herself about Chidi. Speaking of Eleanor and Chidi, they were paired up as soulmates in Season 1, “but what happens when you just reset it?” Schur asks. “The way they meet each other in this new version is completely different from the first time.” Also completely different: Ted Danson’s performance as Michael. “At the very beginning of the premiere, we get to see him as he truly is,” Schur hints. “It’s really fun. I think of it as, like, ‘Ted Danson Unleashed. Ted Danson After Dark.’”

BONUS SPOILER!: Michael’s newly rebooted Good Place offers almost-heavenly touches that are actually hellish, like a bubbling clam-chowder fountain. And that’s not the only thing on the menu, Schur says: “In one of the restaurants, only serve Hawaiian pizza… which is an abomination.”

RETURN DATE: Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 10/9c (NBC); timeslot premiere Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8:30 pm

Kristen Bell is sneaking out of The Good Place to visit the land of animation again. 

The time, the Frozen alum will lend her voice to Family Guy, playing a possible love interest for Brian, EW has learned exclusively.

In an episode of the animated Fox comedy slated to air in November, the Griffin canine meets her character, Martha (as seen below), when he gets a job at a suicide prevention hotline. “Brian falls for his officemate, Martha — a young woman trying to make her way in the big city,” says Family Guy executive producer Rich Appel. “She comes complete with her own theme song, which, like all great sitcom theme songs, literally tells you everything you need to know about her.” He adds: “Kristen Bell’s voice alone could sell anything.” [Source]

The Good Place has been blessed with a heavenly Season 2 launching pad.

NBC announced Monday that the Kristen Bell-Ted Danson comedy will kick off its second season a week early — on Wednesday, Sept, 20 at 10/9c, with a special one-hour episode immediately following the (traditionally) highly-rated two-hour season finale of America’s Got Talent. The Good Place will then settle into its regular Thursday-at-8:30 perch after Superstore on Sept. 2 [Source]

The Good Place and Bad Moms star Kristen Bell has been tapped to sing the closing tune to the Jeff Orlowski-directed Sundance documentary Chasing Coral, available to stream on Netflix July 14. The original song, titled Tell Me How Long, was composed by Dan Romer and Teddy Geiger and is described as a rousing plea about the climate crisis and the devastating phenomenon of global bleaching of coral reefs.

“I was moved and inspired by Chasing Coral and its message of hope for our planet’s future,” said Bell, who also voices the role of Princess Anna in Disney’s Frozen and its upcoming sequel. “I feel a responsibility to care for the earth in whatever way I can and I was honored to lend my voice to the original song. As we strive to make a better world for our children, I hope this film will ignite real action in advancing climate solutions in our global communities.” [Source]

NBC’s “The Good Place,” the critically beloved otherworldly comedy from executive producer and creator Michael Schur, has been renewed for a full-season order of 13 episodes.

The announcement was made by Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment.

“Mike Schur has always had one of the most fertile and imaginative minds in comedy, but what he brought us with the first season of ‘The Good Place’ was just extraordinary,” Salke said. “We absolutely can’t wait to see where these characters go, literally, in season two. A big thank you to Mike, the writers and cast for delivering a series in which we all take such enormous pride.”

With the Gilmore Girls revival behind us, it’s time to reopen our investigation into a second Veronica Mars reunion project.

Over the summer, leading lady Kristen Bell confirmed our initial scoop that she and series creator Rob Thomas are eyeing a limited-series format vs. a fan-funded feature film this time around, telling me at Comic-Con, “We are definitely striving to do it again… And this time around we’re not going to ask the audience to pony up for anything.”

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour last week, Thomas — who was promoting iZombie Season 3 — revealed that the potential continuation would consist of a half-dozen hour-long episodes. “Kristen and I both want to figure out some way we could do a six-episode Veronica Mars mystery,” he shared. “If I were a betting man, I bet that it will happen. I just don’t know when it will be.” [Source]

   

NBC’s freshman comedy is serving up a good old-fashioned battle between good and evil, as Michael fights to keep Eleanor away from Trevor and the Bad Place. Creator Michael Schur hints that the next few episodes are “about the Good Place crew trying desperately to figure out any kind of argument they can make about why Eleanor should stay before this mysterious ‘Shawn’ shows up to lay down a ruling.” (“Shawn” being the perfect name for an all-knowing demigod, of course.) Along with fighting for her eternal soul, Eleanor finds herself in the middle of what Schur calls “the weirdest love triangle of all time,” as the real Eleanor settles into the Good Place — and takes the old Eleanor’s place as Chidi’s soulmate. Plus, look for the Siri-like assistant Janet to come back online (and in service of an unexpected twist). As Schur says, “She’s re-uploading all of the knowledge of the universe, and that takes a little while.”

RETURN DATE: Thursday, Jan. 5 at 8:30/7:30c (NBC) [Source]
