••• While it has yet to find a UK broadcasters, Syfy US’s new series The Magicians (a kind of angstier Harry Potter) has proven such an instant success that the network has already given the green light to a second series. “Thanks to an extraordinarily gifted creative team of executive producers and our partners at Universal Cable Productions, The Magicians has become a buzzed-about hit, enchanting fans of the novels as well as attracting new and younger audiences to Syfy.”

••• According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is in talks to star in Selma director Ava DuVernay’s Intelligent Life, based on a screenplay by the Jurassic World director and writer Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. It is based on a former treatment called The Ambassador, which was about a UN worker hired to represent humankind when aliens arrive, but who ends up falling in love with one of the aliens.

••• Deadline reports that Robert Schwentke, who directed Insurgent and Allegiant – films two and three in the Divergent series – will not be returning for the final film, The Divergent Series: Ascendant. Apparently Schwentke simply needs a break after directing two back-to-back franchise installments. A new director is currently being sought but this is not expected to alter the scheduled premier date for the fourth film (9 June 2017).

••• Two new trailers for Gods Of Egypt, which oddly still doesn’t have an official UK release date even though it’s released in the States on 26 February.

••• Netflix has revealed the new logo for its original animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender.
