Variety reports Olivia Rose Keegan, Navia Robinson, and Oscar Morgan have joined the cast of Gotham Knights. Keegan will play Duela Dent, described in a press release as “abrasive, unpredictable and a little unhinged, Duela is, above all, a survivor. Born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father–the most dangerous man in Gotham–Duela forged herself into a brutal fighter and skilled thief.” Robinson has been cast as the “fearless, idealistic and plucky as hell” Carrie Kelly who “talked her way into being Batman’s unlikely sidekick. If there’s a burning building or a person in need, she’s the first to rush in. Just as long as she’s home by curfew.” Lastly, Morgan will play someone named Turner Hayes, a character who “despite the murder of his biological parents remains resilient and driven to live up to his billionaire adoptive father’s name. While charming and soulful, Turner has never quite felt comfortable in this world of wealth and privilege.”
Deadline reports Nanrisa Lee, Mason Alexander Park and newcomer Caitlin Bassett have joined the cast of the Quantum Leap reboot.

In conversation with TV Line, incoming Borg Queen actress Annie Wersching says the character will be “under distress” and obsessed with Agnes when he meet her this season on Picard.
When we find her, she’s under distress. We’re not used to seeing a Borg Queen who’s not completely in control. She’s used to having the Collective and the hive and all of the noise in her head of everyone’s thoughts and ideas. Now she’s quiet, literally for the first time in her existence, so that is different and strange and maddening for her. She starts in such different circumstances than we’ve seen the other queens in the past. She’s here with the humans, and she’s a little bit like, ‘Ugh, why can’t they just figure this out? It’s so easy’ kind of a thing until she notices Agnes Jurati. There’s something about Agnes Jurati’s mind that the Borg Queen is very interested in. [Jurati is] the only one around who isn’t causing her to just roll her eyes at their lesser-than qualities, so it was really fun to see where they took that relationship.
Relatedly, filming has already wrapped on the show’s third and now formally final season, according to Jeri Ryan on Twitter.
Variety also reports composer Michael Giacchino will instead make his directorial debut with the Werewolf By Night Halloween special at Disney+.

Shawn Levy spoke to Screen Rant about the decision to end Stranger Things with season five.
Well, we never wanted to run on fumes and we wanted to only tell as much story as the brothers saw and feel with clarity. So it’s been clear for a while that [The Duffer Brothers] know exactly where we’re headed and this is the arc. We wouldn’t want to stick around for one moment beyond that vision and the clarity of that voice. So rather than focusing on that sad day that happens who knows when, the end of season five, I’ll just once again reaffirm what I’ve told everyone, which is it has been a long-ass wait for season four. But I swear to God, the world will realize it’s worth it.
