Hello Fandom Fans! You have made it to level 6 of 2021! That means we are halfway through this year’s game! Just like in life, this week the world of fandom has focused on beginnings and endings. Get to a save point and stock up, because we are headed for our next adventure in the news!
We Return to the Shadows
Are we returning to or coming out of the shadows? Either way, the vampire comedy series What We Do In The Shadows is returning for season 3. The hit show posted on their Facebook that season 3 will premiere on Thursday, September 2, 2021. Last season, Guillermo embraced his Van Helsing blood. What kooky shenanigans will Nandor, Nadja, Laszlo, and Collin get into this season? And, what guest stars will be joining for the third season? We can’t wait to find out.
Disney to Ride the Money Train, Car, Plane & More with Transportation Force
Disney’s Cars is one the House of Mouse’s top merchandise sellers. And if there’s one thing big studios love, it’s money! Disney is looking to take a ride straight to the bank with two Cars spin-offs. The first one is the Transportation Force which will take characters from the Cars and Planes films as well as Planes: Fire & Rescue and turn them into a super team. Dane Cook, Gabriel Iglesias, Cedric The Entertainer, and Carlos Alazraqui will all reprise their roles from the Planes franchise.
Along with Transportation Force, Disney is adding a Cars series to Disney+. The Cars series will follow Lightning McQueen and Mater going on a cross-country trip! Both shows will arrive sometime in 2022.
This week 3 nostalgic stars passed away.

The lovable screen actor Gavin MacLeod also passed this week. Many will remember him from The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Love Boat. MacLeod’s nephew, Mark See, confirmed his death to Variety. No cause of death was given, but MacLeod’s health had declined in recent months. He was 90 years old when he died.
We at Fandom Spotlite send our deepest condolences to the families, friends, and fans of these legendary actors.
You Can’t Stop the Turtle Power!
If you think that love is the most powerful force on Earth, you are wrong! Turtle Power seems to be unstoppable. Seth Rogen is working on a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CGI film. Mikey, Raph, Donnie, and Leo will be returning to theaters on August 11, 2023.
Jupiter’s Legacy May Continue?
Jupiter’s Legacy, Netflix’s answer to Amazon’s The Boys, failed to take off. A few short weeks after its premiere, the show was canceled at one season. Though it may be the end for Jupiter, others may get the chance to live on. Netflix has greenlit a spin-off called Supercrooks, which will follow a group of villains planning a monumental heist. The live-action show, which is in its early stages, will live alongside an anime-style series based on the same material. Lets just hope the production budget gets a power increase too.
Baby Shoes…for Adults!
Let’s admit it, baby shoes are really cute! Now adults can rock baby shoes…well…sorta. Puma has collaborated with Nickelodeon’s Rugrats for a limited edition collection. The collection includes sneakers and apparel inspired by everyone’s favorite 90s babies! This colorful collection will be available June 4, 2021!
A Spider-Man Rumor Multiplied by Six!
According to reports, Spider-Man: No Way Home will introduce the Sinister Six, a group of some of Spider-Man’s most dangerous villains. This super team includes Dr. Octopus, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Sandman, and Vulture. However, in the multiverse, the members change. It appears that No Way Home will feature multiple versions of the Sinister Six. If these rumors are true, then the rumors about No Way Home being an a live-action Into The Spider-Verse appear true as well. Our younger Peter Parker is definitely going to need the help of other Spider-Mans…er, Spider-Men.
