Surprise Avengers: Endgame Characters Accidentally Revealed on IMDb?

A number of returning actors and strange secondary characters tease expected plot points in Avengers: Endgame.

Daredevil is Dead in Marvel’s Comics, Too

0

There won't be another season of Daredevil coming to Netflix, and fans still don't know exactly who's to blame. But we can tell you this: it's Marvel who has decided to effectively 'retire' Daredevil in their comics universe, too.

It's a strange twist of fate that Matt Murdock should become one of Marvel's most controversial and talked about heroes. In the comics, as well as his Netflix show, he's better at coping with trauma and grueling tragedy than most. Still, the news that Netflix's Daredevil is canceled leaves the door open for his adaptation on another platform. But in the comics, Marvel's current "Death of Daredevil" story makes it unclear if Matt Murdock will EVER be the superhero he once was. Needless to say, there will be SPOILERS ahead.

The Death of Daredevil

There's a good chance that back when Daredevil fans were watching Iron Fist & Luke Cage get canceled, and holding out hope for their blind attorney, Marvel Comics was already saying their goodbyes. Beginning with "Death of Daredevil: Part One" in Daredevil #609, writer Charles Soule capped off his run with help from artist Phil Noto. For all of the superhero adventure, political maneuvering, and street-level intrigue Matt Murdock had faced and survived, it wasn't any supervillain that finally killed him. It was Matt's split-second decision to push a teen out of the path of a speeding truck. A truck that then struck him down, landing him in intensive care and clinging to life.

What transpired over the next few issues seemed like things finally swinging in Matt's favor, making a recovery and allowing him to feel that, for once, Daredevil was actually in a winning battle. A break that was finally revealed to be nothing but an illusion, as Matt realized he was still on the operating table. He fought his way back to life eventually, with Daredevil #612 ending the "Death of Daredevil" story with a single, determined blip on his heart monitor. But the man who woke up was definitely not the one who had been hit.

Matt Murdock Survived... But Not Daredevil

While the "Death of Daredevil" storyline concluded Soule's run at Issue #612, the question of Matt Murdock's recovery was still left hanging. Thankfully, Marvel has followed up the series with Man Without Fear from Jed Mackay, confirming just how much damage was done by the truck that put him into critical condition. Along with the lifetime spent fighting crime, which made sure that once he finally broke... he would shatter.

It's Matt's trusted friend Foggy Nelson who informs him that the countless broken bones, crushed limbs, bullet wounds, stabbings, and every other injury he pushed through as Daredevil has finally added up. With a speeding truck breaking him "from tip to toes," there wasn't enough for any doctor to put back together into the man he used to be. Or into the superhero he used to be, either. Because there's no chance that Matt Murdock can be Daredevil if he can't get out of a wheelchair first.

Still, the fans know this isn't the end for the superhero. But make no mistake: the new Daredevil comic will relaunch this February, but it won't star the same Matt Murdock fans know best.

Page 2 of 2: How Will Daredevil 'Return From The Dead'?

How Will Daredevil Return From The Dead?

Usually, the news that Chip Zdarsky and artist Marco Checchetto will launch the new Daredevil #1 - before the "Death" of the hero actually happened - would kill much of the suspense. There was never a chance that Marvel would kill the Daredevil comic, even if they pushed the hero to death and back. Even so, letting the cat out of the bag would typically be guaranteed to undercut the real 'impact' of Soule's conclusion. But going by Zdarsky's tease of the new series, it sounds like the new Daredevil #1 will be anything but a clean start. Zdarsky explains in an interview with Marvel:

Things can’t be business as usual no matter how badly Matt wants them to be. That was in my head from my first conversations with Charles about the book. The character’s been put through a lot over the years, but I think "The Death of Daredevil" is going to be a real “come to God” moment for Matt. What does that look like? What will he become?

RELATED: Daredevil is Going To Be Marvel's Next Heimdall

The question of what Matt Murdock will "become" has quickly taken the spotlight in marketing for the new series, with the teaser image showing his Daredevil cowl in flames. Even more cryptic? The tagline suggesting that Daredevil, the unluckiest Marvel hero will come to "Know Fear" before long. And while that might sound like a catchy slogan promising only that the stakes have been raised, the comic series bridging Daredevil's death to his return is doubling down. The days of Matt Murdock being immune to fear are over... these days, he's drowning in it.

Daredevil: Man Without Fear... No More

Even before Matt Murdock woke from his life-saving surgery, he was learning (right along with the readers) that after years famously fighting it away, fear had come for the Daredevil. Just as his injuries had stacked and compounded, wearing away his body, his past of emotional trauma had taken a toll, as well. As his body rested in Man Without Fear, his mind was forced to relive the most painful stages of his superhero career, from lost friends to the parade of women killed for loving him. But even upon waking into his broken body in Man Without Fear #2, Matt finally confesses his most painful secret to Foggy:

"I'm scared, Foggy. I don't know who I am without Daredevil. And I'm afraid... I've put down the burden of Daredevil. Despite the shape I'm in, I should be happy. But all I can think about is how afraid I am. Of everything."

The story itself has proven to be a surprisingly vital one, forcing Matt (and readers) to wonder if living "without fear" is actually any way to live at all. Being fearless is great when it leads to victories and triumph, but what if it ends up breaking your body and killing the people you love? When living as Daredevil and laughing at fear nearly cost Matt everything, is he better off being afraid, or worse?

Until Matt Murdock learns to walk, it's fair to say Daredevil remains dead no matter how he feels. But even if he does put the horns back on, it's obvious the original Daredevil of Hell's Kitchen is gone for good. When Matt makes his return in Daredevil #1, will YOU be joining him?

Daredevil #1 arrives on February 6th, from Marvel Comics.

Rumor: Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Releasing January 15th

0

The long-awaited trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home is now rumored to be released on January 15th. Sony's latest collaboration with Marvel Studios marks the second entry in Tom Holland's Spider-Man franchise set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it is highly anticipated after the great reception to Spider-Man: Homecoming, but also thanks to it being the first MCU film to come out after Avengers: Endgame.

With the film's placement in the larger MCU, fans of the franchise have been anxious to see what exactly Sony will reveal in the marketing for Spider-Man: Far From Home. Spider-Man is currently one of many victims to the Decimation (Thanos' snap in Avengers: Infinity War), so the mere existence of a sequel has been a giveaway that Spidey and his fellow dead MCU heroes will be brought back in some way. Despite fans hoping Sony would not feature their star in the marketing and keep up the charade, Sony's already debuted footage from Spider-Man: Far From Home that indicate otherwise. Descriptions of the trailer out of CCXP indicate that it has no mention of the snap, but still confirms Peter is back somehow. Fans expected to be able to see the footage for themselves right away, but Sony delayed the official release of the trailer.

SuperBroMovies is now reporting that Sony will debut the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer this coming Tuesday, January 15. This is just one rumor for the time being, so it is best to proceed with caution in regard to whether or not the trailer will actually be released on this date. Sony has already bypassed one reported release date after all, so they might do the same if they want to announce the trailer on their own terms. If not, then hopefully Sony - or even just Tom Holland - will confirm this news before too long.

Whatever reason Sony had for holding off on Spider-Man: Far From Home's trailer for this long, it may wind up being for the best. If Sony followed their reported original plan, they would've debuted the trailer just a few days after Avengers: Endgame's first trailer. This could have resulted in the trailer not receiving as much attention as it will now, seeing as fans are weeks removed from the first look at Avengers: Endgame.

As for what fans can expect to see in Spider-Man: Far From Home's trailer, the aforementioned footage description may have it all. There will obviously be plenty of footage of Holland as Peter Parker as he and his classmates go on an international adventure. Fans should also expect to see glimpses of The Elementals, who are set to be antagonists in the film, as well as at least one great look at Jake Gyllenhaal's "good guy" Mysterio. There are several other characters and elements we could see in the first Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, and assuming this latest report is correct, we'll know for sure in just a few days.

Pretty Little Liars: 13 Storylines That Hurt The Show (And 7 That Saved It)

0

The reason that Pretty Little Liars was such a successful series-- able to last seven seasons and spawn at least two spinoffs-- is that, at its best, it could be downright addictive. After all, once you invested in the show’s core characters and its many mysteries, it drove you to tune in in order to find answers and see the next ridiculous situation the Liars found themselves in. The bond beween the four leads and their many romances also kept fans riveted for years.

Despite Pretty Little Liars’ strengths as a TV series, the fact remains that the people that wrote the series sometimes dropped the ball in massive ways. In fact, when it comes to the show’s most memorable story elements, the only thing that fans could count on is that some would be great while others left viewers rolling their eyes in frustration. With that in mind, it is time to look at which storylines worked, and which did not.

In order for one of Pretty Little Liar’s storyline to be considered for possible inclusion on this list, it first and foremost needs to stand out from many of the show’s less important developments. From there, it either needs to have made the show significantly better or taken away from what viewers loved so much about the series. Finally, it should be noted that even short-term storylines were in the running, as long as they were memorable enough to have made a large impact on the show’s legacy.

Here are 13 Storylines That Hurt Pretty Little Liars (And 7 That Saved It).

20 Saved: Spencer is Mary Drake’s Daughter

Despite being born into one of the most dysfunctional families in the history of prime time television, Spencer Hastings spent her early years blissfully unaware of her true origins. Eventually revealed to be the biological daughter of Mary Drake, the exact circumstances of Spencer’s conception come straight out of the soap opera playbook. After all, Spencer’s biological mother got pregnant with her while masquerading as her twin sister and she also was born inside a Sanitarium.

Amidst all of that-- and the fact that Spencer’s parents kept the circumstances of her birth from her-- it was really nice to see Spencer's mother, Veronica Hastings, explain how much she loves her daughter, regardless of where she came from.

19 Hurt: Ravenswood

Introduced to the world of Pretty Little Liars as a backdoor pilot for the spin-off series with the same name, the Ravenswood storyline added nothing to the series that spawned it. Instead, when the Liars made their way to the town of Ravenswood, the episode largely focused on starting storylines and introducing characters for the spin-off.

If making an episode of Pretty Little Liars a waste for fans of that show that had no interest in watching Ravenswood wasn’t bad enough, this storyline also resulted in Caleb leaving the show for a while. On top of that, Mrs. Grunwald was a wacky character who ,could have been an interesting addition to the PLL supporting cast but instead, she only appeared in a handful of episodes.

18 Saved: Jenna Regains and Loses Her Vision

Speaking of Pretty Little Liars’ strong supporting cast, Jenna Marshall has to be considered one of the show’s most valuable characters. A perpetual thorn in the side of the Liars and their allies, she always seemed to be working on one scheme or another, which meant that she kept her enemies and PLL fans guessing.

In the best example of that, over the series’ 7 seasons the question of whether or not she could see at any given moment always was in question. Jenna had been accidentally blinded by the Liars' prank before the show began, but fans and the Liars alike wondered how much she could really see. As a result, when it was revealed that she had regained her vision and kept it a secret it was a delicious moment and when she lost her sight again it was intriguing.

17 Hurt: Alison Becomes a Teacher

Pretty Little Liars' season 6 time jump made sense, considering the show’s main cast definitely looked like adults by that point. However, when it comes to the directions that the various main characters had taken during the years we didn’t see, some of them made no sense at all.

By far the most illogical storyline that came as a part of the flash-forward, turning Alison into a teacher could accurately be described as baffling. After all, her character was an awful role model so having her around kids all the time seemed wrong. On the practical side of things, she missed most of her high school years, so the idea that she could become a teacher when she was still so young was hard to buy.

16 Hurt: Spencer’s Addiction Issues

Many drama series opt to give one of their main character’s addiction issues, which can have very mixed results. When it comes to Spencer from Pretty Little Liars developing a dependency, seeing her spin out of control was tiresome, to say the least. After all, her character had already gone through so much and we had no interest in seeing her spin out of control like that.

On top of that, this storyline led to the introduction of the character named Dean, a counselor who had an unnecessary and inappropriate flirtation with Spencer. In the end, Spencer’s issues seemed like another way to extend the show by several episodes without paying off any of the mysteries fans wanted to know.

15 Saved: Emily's Coming Out Story

The impact that Emily Fields has had on young LGBT viewers cannot be overstated. Her coming out story was sensitively and brilliantly handled by Pretty Little Liars. While her father mostly accepted who Emily was quickly, her mother not only struggled with the truth, but even went so far as saying she felt sick to her stomach. Though she was eventually able to mend fences with her mom, the way Emily’s parents reacted to her truth was nothing new for television.

On the other hand, it was a breath of fresh air that not only did the Liars embrace Emily immediately after she came out, but Hanna had even previously offered support when she suspected her friend may like girls.

14 Hurt: Sara Harvey is Red Coat and Black Widow

The epitome of the way Pretty Little Liars could cop out at times, Sara Harvey seemed to have been introduced simply to answer two long-standing mysteries. Long before Sara first appeared on screen, there was a villain known only as Red Coat. On top of that, the show had also introduced another unknown villain, who wore a black veil to Detective Wilden’s funeral, two seasons before viewers knew Harvey existed.

As is the case with most shows that focus on mysteries like that, Pretty Little Liars’ fans spent years speculating who Red Coat and Black Widow were. As a result, when it was revealed that Sara Harvey wore both garments it was infuriating since there was no way fans could have predicted that.

13 Hurt: Alison Gets Pregnant with Emily's Babies

Pretty Little Liars’ fans went along for the ride as the show’s main characters experienced many nightmares come to life. Despite that, what Archer Dunhill and Alex Drake did to Alison and Emily was a bridge too far. Dunhill took the identity of the deceased Dr. Elliott Rollins and married Alison. He then manipulated her into being committed to a sanitarium, where he did awful things to her.

As part of their cruel treatment of Alison, Alex stole some of Emily’s eggs she’d previously had extracted, had them fertilized by Dunhill, and implanted them into Alison, who eventually gave birth to twins. This was such a complete and total violation that it was hard to fathom.

12 Saved: Lucas and Caleb’s Friendship

Two characters that most fans grew to love, Lucas and Caleb both ended up falling for Hanna Marin and on a show like Pretty Little Liars that is the perfect set up for two characters to loathe one another. Though they weren't always on the best of terms due to jealousy and financial issues, Lucas and Caleb still managed to become really good friends.

In fact, when Caleb briefly moved in with Lucas, they became so close that Caleb once blew off hanging out with Hanna to watch The Goonies with his buddy. The only problem with Lucas and Caleb’s friendship is that it was too short lived since they were such a delight together.

11 Hurt: Lyndon James

Pretty Little Liars definitely was not known for its subtlety. Initially believed to be the cousin of the recently deceased Maya St. Germain, Lyndon James came to Rosewood under a false name. Right from the start something seemed to be strange about "Nate." He quickly tried to befriend Maya's former love, Emily.

The revelation that Lyndon was a stalker who took Maya’s life should have been a shocker, but the show had portrayed him like a creeper from day one. Instead, it was annoying that Emily had ever let Lyndon into her life. After all she'd gone through, she should have been more careful. It was a relief when this poorly portrayed character left the show, being dispatched by Emily.

10 Hurt: Lieutenant Tanner Trying to Pin Everything on the Liars

If you wondered why the Liars didn’t go to the police when A first targeted them, you were not alone. However, once we got to know some of Rosewood’s "finest," like Detective Wilden and Garrett Reynolds, their decision made a lot more sense. Unlike those two corrupt men, Lieutenant Tanner is dedicated to her job and never abused her powers for personal gain.

The fact that she seemed to be on the up-and-up only made it more frustrating that she always had the Liars in her crosshairs. While we certainly can admit that the Liars gave Tanner several reasons to be suspicious of them, she also should have recognized them as victims and stopped trying to pin everything on them.

9 Saved: Spencer and Toby’s Romance

Talk about a character who underwent a huge transition! When Toby was first introduced, it seemed like his face was incapable of smiling and he was always going to be skulking around. By the time the show came to an end, however, he was a good guy who most Pretty Little Liars fans wanted to see end up happy with Spencer.

Toby and Spencer’s skills and quirks paired up perfectly. No matter how intense things became in their lives, they remained incredibly loyal to one another. One of the show’s biggest strengths was showing these two having happy times together, and their problems were just as compelling.

8 Hurt: Nicole's abduction

Whether you loved Aria and Ezra as a couple or felt their whole dynamic was creepy, the truth remains that it always seemed clear they were going to wind up together. As a result, when the show was nearing its end, it felt like enough was enough; it was time to stop coming up with reasons to keep them apart. Unfortunately, this show has to be outrageous, so right after Ezra and Aria became engaged he traveled to a jungle to greet his abducted ex-fiancée, Nicole.

Admittedly the show did a good job of explaining why Ezra went to see his ex: he was still with Nicole when she was abducted. However, when Ezra pretended to still be in love with Nicole to her face, at the insistence of her doctors, it was a step too far.

7 Hurt: Byron’s Girlfriend Meredith vs Aria

Byron Montgomery was an absentee father even though he knew his daughter Aria had consistently been in mortal peril and that she was dating her high school teacher. On top of that, while he still was a married man Byron two-timed on his wife. When Aria daughter found out, he put her in an awful position by asking her to keep his betrayal a secret from her mother.

Worse yet, once he and his wife broke up, Byron got back together with his former mistress Meredith and even though he knew his daughter and girlfriend did not get along, he left them alone together. This led to a storyline in which Meredith kept Aria unconscious for several days by slipping things in her drinks. Seeing Aria left in that position by her own father made fans sick.

6 Saved: Hanna and Caleb’s Romance

Easily the most lovable Pretty Little Liars couple, if Hanna and Caleb didn’t end up together when the show came to an end it would have been thought to swallow. After all, even when Hanna fell on hard times, as happened often, she managed to be one of the show’s bright spots. As a result, it was wonderful to see her get involved with a man who clearly adored her and was willing to go to extremes in order to keep her in his life.

If that weren’t enough to let this TV couple into your heart, the chemistry shared by the actors that played Hanna and Caleb, Ashley Benson and Tyler Blackburn, lit up the screen.

5 Hurt: The Ghost Girl

Known to go out all out for its Halloween episodes, Pretty Little Liars even altered its opening credits for its spooktacular episodes. However, just because Pretty Little Liars committed to the spirit of the season does not mean that the show’s Halloween storylines always hit the mark. For instance, during the second season, Alison told a horror story about a deceased little girl who entered the Marin household during the following year’s Halloween episode.

Invited into the home by Ashley Marin, the ghost girl alluded to the circumstances of her demise, claimed to call her mom who cried at hearing her voice, and then disappeared-- never to be seen again. Not even remotely spooky, this storyline instead confused the majority of viewers.

4 Hurt: Cece is Charlotte is A

Ultimately revealed to be the person that was known as A and the leader of the A-Team, Charlotte being a major Pretty Little Liars villain was problematic for more than one reason. First off, her motivations for stalking and tormenting the Liars didn’t seem to be very convincing, since she and Alison weren’t in each other’s lives for very long.

That aside, learning that Charlotte is a DiLaurentis made us realize that she briefly dated her adopted brother/biological cousin Jason, which is creepy in the worst way. Finally, the show only introduced one trans character in its 7 seasons, which made it feel wrong that she turned out to be a deceptive psychopath who does wicked things.

3 Saved: Mona’s Redemption

Mona Vanderwaal was far more interesting than anyone could have guessed after they met her in the pilot. She was a really fun character, and prior to the big reveal related to her character, the show was always funnier when Mona was on the screen. Then it was revealed that Mona was the original A and her character changed completely into an unhinged and unpredictable person who was prone to rages.

Mona was gradually able to redeem herself by sacrificing herself for her old friend Hanna and extensively helping the Liars. She's still a dangerous person that could do scary things, but at the end of the show, she used her dark abilities to wreak revenge on the show’s villains.

2 Hurt: Spencer’s Twin Sister

This is probably the most mocked soap opera trope. Anytime an identical or evil twin is introduced, it is bound to elicit groans. Clearly not afraid of going down that route multiple times, Pretty Little Liars first featured identical twins Jessica DiLaurentis and Mary Drake, the latter of whom arguably was the evil one. However, it wasn’t until the very last episode of Pretty Little Liars that one of the core characters was given an evil twin of her own.

Abducted by someone who looked exactly like her, Spencer turned out to have an unknown twin sister named Alex Drake who was the Uber A. This was a gigantic piece of information to drop on viewers during the series finale. Spencer having a twin felt like yet another lazy way of explaining away many of the show’s mysteries.

1 Hurt: Ezra’s True Crime Novel

When it first became clear that Ezra was stalking the Liars, we were totally intrigued and wanted to see what would happen next. He was even shown to have a secret lai. It seemed like he might have gone to the dark side. Of course, most viewers assumed that we would be given some kind of explanation for his actions, and that he and Aria would get back together.

However, when Aria discovered Ezra’s research and he explained that he was working on a true crime novel about Alison, fans' mouths dropped open in disappointment. After all, true crime books are published all of the time and their writers didn’t stalk anyone. Also, this storyline revealed that Ezra knew Aria was a minor when he first got romantically involved with him which made him even worse. This storyline totally backfired, all for the sake of an A red herring.

Star Wars Resistance Is About To Overtake The Last Jedi

0

Star Wars Resistance is an animated series set just prior to the events of The Force Awakens, but with the release of its midseason trailer, it's becoming apparent that the series will soon overtake the events of The Last Jedi.

Unlike previous Star Wars animated series like The Clone Wars and Rebels, Resistance is aimed at younger audiences, focusing more on the thrills of racing and the hijinks of Kaz and his friends. However, with Kaz's primary mission being to gather intel for the Resistance on the First Order's comings and goings from the Colossus fueling station, the larger, more serious threat of open war still looms.

As season 1 has progressed, the First Order's presence on the Colossus has increased. Concerned by the growing threats from pirates who raid the station, the man in charge, Captain Doza, has agreed to the First Order's offer of protection, giving them more access to the station than ever before. And now, as we can see in the midseason trailer, the First Order will soon use this opportunity to take control of the Colossus for themselves, needing its precious fuel for when they declare war on the New Republic. Kaz and friends, however, won't stand by and let that happen, and as they do battle on the Colossus, the rest of the Resistance will take the fight directly to the First Order and Starkiller Base - just as depicted in The Force Awakens.

Resistance Season 1 Covers The Force Awakens

Star Wars Resistance Starkiller Base

For proof that the second half of Star Wars Resistance season 1 will coincide with the events of The Force Awakens, look no further than the scene in the trailer where stormtroopers on the Colossus are watching a holovid of Admiral Hux delivering his speech announcing the end of the Republic to the troops on Starkiller Base. Audiences first saw this speech in The Force Awakens, where afterward, Hux gives the order for the station to fire on the Hosnian System, destroying the New Republic's capital and the Galactic Senate.

Just when the Hosnian Cataclysm (as it's later known) will fall in the back of half of Resistance season 1 remains unclear, but it's sure to have a huge impact on the series. For one, Kaz's father serves in the Galactic Senate, meaning that he and the rest of Kaz's family are potential causalities. Kaz is already a member of the Resistance - against his father's wishes, it should be noted - but the death of any family at the hands of the First Order is sure to make him a more fervent supporter. On the larger scale, the Hosnian Cataclysm is what begins the First Order-Resistance war in earnest, and the scenes in the trailer featuring the Aces fighting back against the forces of the First Order suggests that Resistance season 1 could also cover the early days of the conflict.

In that case, it seems more than likely that Star Wars Resistance season 1 will at the very least cover the timeline of events through the end of The Force Awakens, most likely ending with the Resistance's attack on Starkiller Base. The superweapon has already appeared on Resistance, and though it may be a stretch to think that the actual Battle of Starkiller Base will feature on the animated series, the event itself will almost certainly be referenced.

Resistance Season 2 Will Include The Last Jedi & Beyond

Following the events of The Force Awakens, there isn't much time that passes between then and the conclusion of The Last Jedi. In fact, The Last Jedi picks up the story right where The Force Awakens leaves off and only spans a few days. So, if we're to assume that Star Wars Resistance season 1 covers roughly the same time frame as The Force Awakens, then season 2 must start either just before or during the time frame of The Last Jedi.

This would mean that Star Wars Resistance season 2 won't only coincide with the events of The Last Jedi - which, most significantly for Resistance, includes the journey to and the escape from Crait - but it will surpass them. That will put Resistance into uncharted territory that has so far only been teased in the pages of Marvel's Poe Dameron comics. The final issue of that series sees Poe coming to the rescue of the Black Squadron soon after fleeing Crait in the Millenium Falcon, helping them to assist the planet Ikkrukk fend off the First Order.

During this time, the remnants of the Resistance have been reduced to guerrilla fighters and it's easy to see how Kaz and his friends from the Colossus could fit within that scenario. Already, that midseason trailer depicts Kaz and the Aces fighting the First Order for control of the Colossus, and were they to regain control of the fueling station, it would be a crucial outpost for the Resistance. Then again, the First Order will know of its existence, which might imply that the Colossus will need to be abandoned even if they stop the First Order from taking over.

Star Wars Resistance season 2 will premiere in the fall of 2019, putting it just before the release of Star Wars: Episode IX in December. This means that Resistance can begin teasing the events which follow The Last Jedi - similarly to the Poe Dameron comics - without fully revealing what's in store for Episode IX. After the release of Episode IX, however, it's unclear exactly where the Star Wars saga will go next, but it sure seems that Star Wars Resistance will continue to be on the front lines of this new era in the franchise.
