Thought it has yet to air its first episode, Disney Channels has renewed for a second season its animated series Star Wars Rebels.
The series — the first animated put into production since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012 — harkens back to the original Star Wars trilogy, telling a tale of the nascent rebellion in the years just before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope.
The new series is executive produced by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (the X-Men movie franchise) and animation veteran Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man).
A one-hour movie premiere titled Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion airs Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel in the United States and again Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD in the U.S. The series itself begins Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD in the U.S. The show will be seen in 34 languages across 163 countries in more than 400 million households.
The movie was screened for press and fans in July at Comic-Con International in San Diego, earning an overwhelmingly positive reaction.

Fox's "Gotham" has announced that another famous comicbook character is joining the Batman prequel.
Nicholas D'Agosto ("Masters of Sex") is joining the cast as Harvey Dent --- a character who, during his good days, is known for being an idealistic assistant district attorney who vows to eradicate the crime and corruption that has poisoned Gotham. Although he will one day serve as the white knight Gotham desperately needs, Dent also gives the audience a fleeting glimpse of the villain he will become: Two-Face.
D'Agosto will only serve as a guest star on the series for now, as "Gotham" is currently spending the first season's villain storyline on an origin tale surrounding Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin (actor Robin Lord Taylor). But there is a series regular option in the event that the show is renewed for a second season.
Right now, the chances of that happening look good. The second episode of "Gotham," which airs Mondays and is produced by Warner Bros. TV and is based on the DC Entertainment characters, delivered solid ratings earlier this week. The premiere episode also topped piracy downloads. In a potentially bold move, Netflix bought worldwide distribution rights to the series' first season in September --- a deal that was announced even before the show had a chance to premiere.
D'Agosto is repped by UTA, Emerald Talent Group and Mitch Smelkinson.

After hearing rumors for some time, earlier this month, we learned that AMC did order a pilot for a spinoff series of AMC's The Walking Dead, based on Robert Kirkman's comic book of the same name (sans the "AMC's" of course). Now, TVLine is reporting that details of the cast are now surfacing.
According to TVLine, there are six main characters that the spinoff series will be centered around. Two families essentially, coming together to try to figure out what's going on. Furthermore, the series will be somewhat of a prequel in that it will take place during the early days of the outbreak. The series will explore an unseen area that we haven't yet explored. As viewers of the show know, the survivors in the main series have remained in the south to present.
The descriptions of the characters for the spinoff are as follows, again, according to TVLine:
SEAN CABRERA - A Latino male in his early 40s, Sean is a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life.
CODY CABRERA - Sean's whip-smart and rebellious teenage son. Known as the angriest kid in town.
NANCY TOMPKINS - A thirtysomething single mom to two kids, Nancy looks like the girl next door, but there's an edge to her.
NICK TOMPKINS - Nancy's screwed up teenage son. He's too old to stay home, too scared to flee.
ASHLEY TOMPKINS - Nancy's mostly level-headed teenage daughter. Her ambition is in direct proportion to her older brother's failures. She loves her mom, but it's time to get out of Dodge.
ANDREA CHAPMAN - A somewhat wilted flower child, fortysomething Andrea has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.
An AMC rep declined to comment to TVLine or confirm anything beyond ordering the pilot.
Let us know what you think of this direction and character lineup below.
