It's not as if Steven and Chandler didn't see this coming. Streaming service Quibi announced last week that they would be shutting down.

In less obvious news that no one saw coming, Jared Leto is returning to the role of the Joker. And a live-action Barney movie?? We're also jumping into awards season with both feet. Netflix has release "The Trial of the Chicago 7," from writer/director Aaron Sorkin.
