Kid Cosmic – season 3

Netflix's Kid Cosmic Jo and The Local Heroes

Kid Cosmic is back with its third and final season. Kid Cosmic is an animated superhero TV series created by Craig McCracken and following Kid (voiced by Jack Fisher), a boy who gets a chance to become a superhero. Kid then forms a team of local heroes to stop an onslaught of alien attacks to steal back the Five Cosmic Stones of Powers, and even though Kid and his team are the good guys, they’re really bad at it. Kid soon learns that his fantasy of being a hero is very different from the reality of what it actually means to become one.


Murderville is a murder-mystery TV series based on the BBC’s Murder in Successville. For Senior Detective Terry Seattle (Will Arnett), Homicide Division, every day means a new murder case and a new celebrity guest star as his partner, but here’s the catch: each episode’s guest star isn’t being given the script. Together, the guest star and Terry Seattle will have to improvise their way through the case, but it will be up to each celebrity guest alone to name the killer. The six-episode procedural crime comedy counts on celebrity guest stars Annie Murphy, Conan O’Brien, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, Sharon Stone.

In season 2, Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue learn who is in the car, but that’s just the first of many surprises that come out of Prom Night – friendships flounder, old loves end and new loves begin, long-hidden secrets disrupt jobs, change lives, and shift the balance of power in Serenity.
