The trailer for the next episode of Supergirl features the villain Psi. Supergirl returned to The CW for season 3 and in the premiere showed audiences a much darker side of the hero than they are used to.

Apple is set to reboot 1980s anthology series Amazing Stories, with Steven Spielberg and Bryan Fuller both on-board. Arguably the golden era for the genre, the 80s played host to lots of well-remembered anthology programming, including Tales from the Darkside, The Ray Bradbury Theater, and CBS’ first attempt at rebooting The Twilight Zone.

Premiering on NBC in September 1985, Amazing Stories ran for only two seasons, producing 45 total episodes. Despite being nominated for 12 Emmy Awards – and winning 5 – Amazing Stories failed ...
