February 5, 2024 - SHOWTIME has picked up a second season of the critically acclaimed half-hour dramedy series DREAMING WHILST BLACK, which garnered industry praise for its inaugural season, including nominations from the 2024 Film Independent Spirit Awards and the NAACP Image Awards. Featuring returning star and BAFTA Award winning co-creator and co-writer Adjani Salmon (Chivalry), season two is expected to commence filming later this year in the UK. The season will premiere in the U.S. on streaming and on demand for Paramount+ for subscribers with the Paramount+ with SHOWTIME plan, on air on Paramount+ with SHOWTIME, and in the UK on BBC Three and iPlayer. The series is co-produced by Big Deal Films in creative collaboration with A24. A24 will also distribute the series globally.

Loosely inspired by real-life events, DREAMING WHILST BLACK season one tells the story of Kwabena (Salmon), an aspiring filmmaker stuck in a dead-end recruitment job who takes the first step toward achieving his dream. Along the way, he is quickly confronted with the tribulations of balancing finances, love, and his own sense of reality. The series was adapted from the web series and acclaimed Big Deal Films-produced BBC pilot of the same name, which earned Salmon the 2022 BAFTA for Emerging Talent: Fiction and Screen International Star of Tomorrow. The show and Salmon have secured additional award recognition within the UK, including The Royal Television Society's 2022 Breakthrough Award win for Salmon and series nominations in the International Emmys and the Broadcast Awards.

“The response to DREAMING WHILST BLACK has been overwhelmingly loving, raucous and humbling,” said Salmon. “I’m blessed that we have a chance to entertain da peopledem again. Like season one, our goal is to end up being shared in the Aunties WhatsApp Groups.”

DREAMING WHILST BLACK really resonated with BBC viewers who felt the warmth and humor radiating from Adjani Salmon’s brilliant comic creation” said Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy Commissioning at the BBC. “It was a no brainer for us to press go again on this multi-award winning series and we can’t wait to see more.”

“Adjani Salmon is a creative force whose authentic and complex storytelling in DREAMING WHILST BLACK has rightfully gained widespread acclaim,” said Nina L. Diaz, President of Content & Chief Creative Officer, SHOWTIME/MTV Entertainment Studios & Paramount Media Networks.  “We are thrilled to greenlight a second season and work alongside our partners at A24 and Big Deal Films to further explore these rich and hilarious characters who have resonated so deeply with our audience on Paramount+ with SHOWTIME.” 

DREAMING WHILST BLACK season one struck a chord with audiences all over, offering a dose of relatable chaos, hard truths and laughs in between,” said executive producer Dhanny Joshi of Big Deal Films. “We couldn't be more excited to go again and give the people what they want – a second season.”

Co-produced by UK-based indie Big Deal Films and A24, Dhanny Joshi and Thomas Stogdon return to executive produce for Big Deal Films, along with Salmon. Nicola Gregory serves as producer. The original web series was co-written by Salmon and Ali Hughes and was created by Adjani Salmon, Max Evans, Laura de Sousa Seixas and Natasha Jatania of 4 Quarters Films.

'The Thundermans Return' In New Movie, Premiering March 7 on Nickelodeon and Paramount+

The Thundermans are back! Nickelodeon will premiere The Thundermans Return, a brand new movie based on Nickelodeon‘s hit live-action superhero comedy series, The Thundermans, on Thursday, March 7 at 6:00 p.m. (ET/PT)! The movie will also be available to stream on Paramount+, the streaming home of Nickelodeon, and rollout onto Nickelodeon channels globally later in the month.

The Thundermans Return

In addition to announcing the debut date for The Thundermans Return, Nickelodeon also unveiled the film's official key art poster, and revealed that the movie's official trailer will be revealed during Super Bowl LVIII Live from Bikini Bottom, airing exclusively on Nickelodeon on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024, at 6:30 p.m. ET / 3:30 p.m. PT.

The Thundermans Return

Per the official logline: “After three years of fighting crime in their new city of Metroburg, The Thundermans are suddenly stripped of their assignment and sent back to Hiddenville. While Hank and Barb look forward to their return ‘home’, Chloe develops new friend groups, Billy and Nora enjoy a normal school life, and Max and Phoebe are determined to regain their superhero status.”

The official description states audiences will get to see “the return of show favorites, new villains and familiar locations.”

The Thundermans Return stars original series cast members Kira Kosarin as “Phoebe,” Jack Griffo as “Max,” Addison Riecke as “Nora,” Diego Velazquez as “Billy,” Maya Le Clark as “Chloe,” Chris Tallman as “Hank” and Rosa Blasi as “Barb.” Dr. Colosso, voiced by Dana Snyder in the series, is also set to return.

The poster also teases the return of one of the series' main villain, Dark Mayhem.

Interestingly, Chloe in front and center in the poster, which could suggest that they may continue the franchise if a new movie or TV series announced on the back of the movie.


The Thundermans premiered on Nickelodeon in October 2013 and wrapped its four-season run in 2018, ranking as the number-one series across all TV among Kids 2-11 and Kids 6-11. Created and executive produced by Jed Spingarn, the scripted half-hour series follows superhero twins with opposite personalities, Phoebe and Max Thunderman, as they navigate their way through school, friends and a family of extraordinary superheroes, all while keeping their true identities a secret.

The show has recently seen a resurgence following its 4Q21 launch on streaming, where it quickly became the top title across all SVOD for the quarter among Kids 6-11; and it continued to rank among the top titles with Kids 6-11 through 2022.

The Thundermans Return is written and executive produced by Spingarn (Big Time Rush, Jimmy Neutron) and directed by Trevor Kirschner (The Thundermans, Raven’s Home, The Conners). Kira Kosarin is executive producing. Jack Griffo is also an executive producer on the movie. Dan Cross & David Hoge also serve as executive producers.

Butch Hartman Reveals His Pick to Play Live-Action Danny Phantom at MegaCon

Butch Hartman, the creator of Danny Phantom, wants Tom Holland to play the teenage ghost.

Danny Fenton

Believe it or not, this April marks the 20th anniversary of Danny Phantom. The sci-fi series went live under the eye of Butch Hartman, and it remains one of the most beloved animated titles to come from Nickelodeon. Even after all these years, fans new and old continue to go ghost with Danny Fenton as he patrols the Ghost Zone. Now, Hartman has revealed who he would want to play Danny in live-action, and it is someone we all know.

The information comes straight from MegaCon in Orlando as ComicBook.com hosted a panel with Hartman. It was there the creator of Danny Phantom was asked about his live-action hopes, and Hartman admitted he wants a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) star to tackle his creation.

"Tom Holland, all the way," Hartman revealed. "It's got to be Tom Holland."

So there you have it! From Spider-Man to Danny Phantom, it seems Holland has a lock on a number of top-tier heroes. Now, the only question is if the British actor is available for the role...

Of course, Danny Phantom fans would love to see the series make a comeback, but no such plans are in the works so far as we know. The original animated series ended in August 2007 which gave it three years on the air. In recent years, social media has rallied behind Danny Phantom with some groups going so far as to petition Nickelodeon for a revival. Not long ago, reports even surfaced that discussions for a live-action Danny Phantom movie were in talks in Hollywood. So if that is the case, well – we know how Hartman wants to see go ghost on the big screen!

For now, it seems like your best bet to reconnect with Danny Phantom is through its animated series. The hit show is streaming right now on Paramount+, and you can get a free trial by clicking here.

New 'Rugrats' Video Game 'Adventures in Gameland' Will Take You Right Back To The 90s With Playable Demo Now Available

There’s a brand-new retro-styled Rugrats game coming out later this year, with a free demo currently available for a limited time. Here’s what to know, and how to claim it.

Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland

A brand-new retro-styled Rugrats video game is coming soon, but some players can already check out a free demo.

Rugrats premiered in August 1991 are one of Nickelodeon's original Nicktoons. Depicting the trials and tribulations of the adult world through the eyes of adventurous babies, Rugrats is perhaps the quintessential '90s cartoon, a perfect example of the Klasky Csupo style that dominated the decade. The revival series, also called Rugrats, is currently in its second season on Paramount+, but the new game clings more closely to the original.


Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is scheduled for release in March 2024, but there's already a playable demo via Steam Next Fest. Developed by The MIX Games and Wallride, Adventures in Gameland is a 2D platformer starring the Rugrats - Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Phil, and Lil - as they traverse six grown-up-size levels full of challenges. Each baby has their own unique abilities to help with overcoming distinct obstacles. Babies can be swapped in and out mid-level for a flexible puzzle-solving experience.

Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is playable in two game modes: one that resembles the classic 8-bit style of The Rugrats Movie for the Game Boy Color, and another with hand-drawn art identical to the original cartoon. It features both single-player and two-player split-screen, with players working together to do what a baby's gotta do. As a result, it's designed largely for co-op, with each player controlling a member of the Rugrats crew.

On release, Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland will be available for all modern platforms: Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and NES. That's right - through collaboration with Limited Run Games, there will be a special, physical NES edition of Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland, which should be available for pre-order soon. This will likely be a very limited edition, as demand for NES games has understandably gone down in the past 30-odd years. No price or final release date has been announced for the full game yet, but with a demo already available, it probably won't be long.

The playable demo is part of Steam Next Fest, an annual celebration of upcoming releases by the digital game store. It'll only be available only while the event is ongoing, from February 5 through February 12, and can be claimed through the game's official Steam page. Unfortunately, that means the Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland demo is only playable on PC. Those using other platforms will have to wait for March to see what Adventures in Gameland has to offer.

Between nods to the NES era and fresh gameplay, Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is the perfect way to discover or rediscover a love for the classic cartoon. Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is available as a free demo via Steam Next Fest until February 12, with a full release to follow next month.

Nickelodeon has unfortunately decided to cancel Erin & Aaron and not renew the network's live-action comedy series for a second season.

The show's cancellation was announced by Jensen Gering, who played Aaron on the series, on the actor's official Instagram page. In his post, Gering captioned a video from the series with a tribute to his co-stars and the staff who put the show together, saying:

"Our show ‘Erin & Aaron’ has come to an end.

I want to thank all the fans who loved, watched and supported our show. The experience I had being a part of E&A was truly one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life. Getting to do comedy, sing and play music in one show was the best. I learned so much, worked so hard and had the time of my life. I am beyond thankful to @nickelodeon and @netflix for this amazing opportunity and for believing in me. The family that show runner @pattygarycox [Patty Gary-Cox] created along with Exec Producer and Creator Dicky Murphy and Exec Producers @seanwcunningham [Sean Cunningham], Marc Dworkin and Producer @outsmartin [Samantha Martin] was beyond what I could imagine. We had so much love and support the entire run of the show. I seriously couldn’t have asked for anything more. Getting to go in the studio everyday with my cast mates and friends for life, super talented girl Erin @avaro [Ava Ro], superstar lil sister @pyperbraun [Pyper Braun] (who is starring in the film “Imaginary” in theaters next Month! GO SEE IT) , Mom @larisoleynik [Larisa Oleynik] Stepdad @davesjung [David S Jung] and friends @lucaidiaz [Luca Diaz] and @itsceliamendez [Celia Méndez] and laugh so much was everything. I have to send a special thanks to Director of Episodes 1-3 @wendyfaraone [Wendy Ann Faraone] whose love and guidance was just amazing.

This show was my first audition with my amazing agents @emilyurbani [Emily Urbani] and @herecomestreibel [Tiffany Treibel Martinez] at @osbrinkagency [The Osbrink Agency]. And of course Cindy Osbrink all of who I am forever grateful for. I am equally grateful to Casting Directors @amberhorn [Amber Horn] @anamelikedanicalifornia [Danielle Aufiero] & @ronpennywell [Ron Pennywell] who took a chance and let me audition for this project. The three of you rooting me on (and continuing to) is such a blessing.

There are, of course, many more people who were involved in this project. On set singing and piano coach @neararussell [Neara Russell] guitar coach @nicholas_monahan [Nicholas Monahan] producer/songwriter @chrissernel wardrobe [Chris Sernel] @nicolegorsuch [Nicole Gorsuch] Choreographers @cjudd [Cris Judd] and @mr_twinkletoes [Jason Chong]

Thanks to everyone behind the scenes as well. We had so many laughs and memories I will hold to on forever. The show lives on @netflix and the songs live on @spotify

Thanks for following me on this journey and I’m looking forward to whats next in music, acting and life!"

The Game Has Changed | Rock Paper Scissors | Nickelodeon

The game has changed. Catch Nickelodeon's brand new animated comedy series Rock Paper Scissors, premiering Monday, February 12, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon! Lookout for sneak peeks on Nickelodeon and on Nicktoons' YouTube channel!


Inspired by the age-old tradition of settling things with your best friends, the game comes to life through the shenanigans of pals Rock, Paper and Scissors in Nickelodeon’s new animated series Rock Paper Scissors, premiering Monday, February 12, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. As the first short picked up for series from Nickelodeon’s Intergalactic Shorts Program, new episodes will continue to air weekdays at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and internationally later in the month.

In Rock Paper Scissors, titular characters, Rock, Paper and Scissors, are a trio of best friends and roommates who lovingly compete over everything in hilarious but mostly wildly absurd ways. Throughout season one, the trio will go to extremes playing hide-and-seek around the world, running from the birthday police, defending the world from an alien invasion, going head-to-head with the Rat Bros and more.


Nickelodeon’s brand-new Annie Award-nominated animated comedy stars Ron Funches (Trolls, Trolls Band Together) as Rock, the member of the trio with the biggest heart and moral compass; Thomas Lennon (Zoey 102, 17 Again, Reno 911!) as Paper, the wannabe intellectual who dreams of being a famous inventor; and Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko’s Modern Life, Reno 911!) as Scissors, who acts overly confident and always wants to be cool. The series also stars Melissa Villaseñor (Saturday Night Live) as Pencil, the trio’s incredibly smart neighbor down the hall and Eddie Pepitone (The Muppets, Old School) as Lou, the angry landlord, who is also a garbage can.


Guest stars set to breathe life into original characters during season one include Grammy Award-winner Alessia Cara (The Willoughbys) as the famous pop star Lolly; Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Jason Alexander (Star Trek: Prodigy, Seinfeld) as the greatest fart joke comedian of all time Jonathan FartJoke; Isabela Merced (100 Things to Do Before High School, Dora and the Lost City of Gold) as the trio’s hulking vehicle The Susan – a hybrid of bicycle, hot rod and hot-air balloon; and Carla Gugino (Spy Kids) as The Birthday Cop.

Additional voices joining the series include Lauren Ash (Superstore) as Paper’s action movie star sister Sandpaper, J.P.

Amassing $USD952 million at the global box-office and honoured with this year’s highest industry accolades dominating with 13 Academy Awards® and British Academy Film & Television Award (BAFTA) nominations each, blockbuster Oppenheimer, starring Oscar®-nominated Cillian Murphy as J.

An unprecedented cinematic event, Oppenheimer features an all-star cast that includes Oscar winner Matt Damon, Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr., Oscar nominee Florence Pugh, Josh Hartnett, and Oscar winners Casey Affleck, Rami Malek and Kenneth Branagh.

For the first-time ever, characters from SpongeBob SquarePants will join the telecast live, with an animated SpongeBob SquarePants (voiced by Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (voiced by Bill Fagerbakke) joining CBS Sports analyst Nate Burleson and play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle live in the booth to call the game.
