PREACHER: SEASON 3 NEW CAST MEMBERS

Production has begun on Season 3 of Preacher, and AMC has announced the following new cast members.

Betty Buckley as Gran'ma: A spiritist with true powers, who can cast spells and even bring back the dead (for a price). Pay the fee or pay with your soul to feed Gran'ma's thirst for eternal youth. She is weathered, tough, and mean, but also intelligent beyond measure. She's Jesse's only living family and she loves him.

Colin Cunningham as TC: A man born of the bayou and the loyal caretaker and soldier for Gran'ma. Weasely and wiry, he'll gladly tell you about his perversions whether you ask him or not. While he seems like the friendliest guy you'll ever meet, don't make the mistake of turning your back on him.

Jeremy Childs as Jody: Massive and intimidating, Jody emanates danger. He's the enforcer for Gran'ma and the only man Jesse's never beaten in a fight. He's nobody;s fool, and not someone to cross.

Liz McGeever as Christina: Capable and efficient, Christina has a face that lures customers in for her family business. Christina hides it well, but she hates her job and has dreams and aspirations outside of her current life -- but suffers to protect her child.

New episodes will air on AMC this summer.

BRIEFLY

Q&W TIE-IN: Valiant Entertainment has announced that Quantum & Woody! #6 on May 30 will begin a tie-in into Harbinger Wars 2.

Here's how the story -- by writer Eliot Rahl and artist Francis Portela -- is described:

"In the ultimate display of power, Livewire has plunged the United States into darkness. From coast to coast, once-vital technology has now been rendered worthless. No cars, no phones... no quantum bands? Without the high-tech gauntlets that bind them together, the world's worst superhero team have 24 hours before they disintegrate into nothingness. Now, stripped of their powers and unable to 'klang,' can Quantum and Woody become the heroes they've always aspired to be and secure the streets of the nation's capital before time runs out?"

"Quantum and Woody, although loud voices, occupy a very small part of the Valiant Universe," Rahal said "That's a really fun power dynamic to play with. So I'm treating the fallout from [Harbinger Wars 2] like it's an unavoidable disaster. An act of God. It's too huge of a crisis for them to solve. They just have to deal with it. Quantum and Woody can only try to survive and do what good they can along the way."

PAWZPLAY: Factory Entertainment has announced Pawzplay, a line of plush figures featuring DC Comics characters as dogs and cats. The first series, in stores this month, includes Diana (Wonder Woman) the Persian, Harley (Harley Quinn) the Calico, Bruce (Batman) the Doberman and Clark (Superman) the Husky.

GO GO, POWER RANGERS: Saban Brands and Nickelodeon have announced the continuation of their partnership, with Nickelodeon to serve as the official broadcaster for Saban's Power Rangers television series in the U.S. through 2021.

"Saban's Power Rangers has been on the air for 25 continuous seasons and we are thrilled to extend our long-standing and collaborative partnership with Nickelodeon through 2021 to continue to deliver action-packed adventures to a new generation of kids," said Janet Hsu, chief executive officer of Saban Brands. "We are excited for the year ahead and what's to come for the Power Rangers franchise."

UMBRELLA CASTING: According to Variety, Mary J. Blige has been cast as Cha-Cha in Netflix's Umbrella Academy television series. She joins a cast that includes Tom Hopper as Luther, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison, Ellen Page as Vanya, Robert Sheehan as Klaus and Aidan Gallagher as Number Five.
