He hopes his can-do attitude can make up for his inability to actually do stuff. Lisa Gilroy (Jury Duty, Interior Chinatown) as Tyris Flare, a fearsome battle sorceress, deadly in a fight and even deadlier with her sharp wit. Liam McIntyre (Spartacus, The Flash) as Ax Battler, a barbarian warrior with a strict code of honor and sweet golden retriever demeanor. His brawn outweighs his brains, but his heart outweighs his brawn. Carl Tart (Grand Crew, Star Trek: Lower Decks) as Chronos "Evil" Lait, originally from Golden Axe III, is a 100% badass humanoid panther. At least that's how Chronos describes himself. In reality he's uncomfortably cheesy and can't read a room. Fans can anticipate plenty of exciting cameos from the world of Golden Axe.

SitcomsOnline Digest: The Talk Coming to an End at CBS; CBS Renews The Neighborhood

 Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! It's renewal, cancellation, and "oh my how many more reboots are they planning" week around here! This week, we're hearing of the end of a CBS daytime series, a renewal, and learning about more and more potential reboots (which we don't even cover them all, believe it or not). Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • We suspected it was coming, as CBS is making unusual move and actually bringing a new soap opera onto their daytime lineup (though we're not sure yet that will be the replacement), but it was announced that The Talk will be coming to an end in December. (Variety)
  • Meanwhile, over in primetime, CBS has renewed The Neighborhood. (Deadline)
  • NBC hasn't really had many sitcoms in recent years, and right now, it seems that Night Court could be the only one that will be renewed, and even that hasn't officially happened yet. (Deadline)
  • We don't suggest reading this if you haven't seen it, but the Curb Your Enthusiasm finale aired this week, and it had some people remembering the finale of Seinfeld. (Deadline)
  • Since all of the old stuff has already had a reboot, it looks like CBS is going with more recent things to reboot now, with a reboot of Cold Case being considered. (TVLine)
  • It seems that Heroes is also in line for a reboot, and it's worth noting that this would be the second reboot of a series that only ended in 2010. (Variety)
  • S.W.A.T. has been renewed again, after being cancelled again, and with this being the eighth season on the way, it's worth noting that for this reboot, that's six seasons longer than the original series lasted. (SitcomsOnline)

WEEKLY PLANNER (APRIL 13 - APRIL 19)

  • Catchy Comedy has a binge of Bosom Buddies this weekend.
  • Antenna TV has a "Sunday Best" featuring Alice tomorrow.
  • New episodes of The Upshaws arrives on Netflix on Thursday.
