If you're like me, then you've spent at least the last year of your life upset that you wouldn't be seeing the next Harry Potter story anytime soon. An eighth story about The Boy Who Lived was announced back in 2013, but it's not a book -- it's a play. And so far, it's a play that will only be performed in London.

But we're in luck! J.K. Rowling has announced that the play's script will be published as a book more or less immediately after the play takes the stage, hitting book stores on July 31. Again, it's a script, not a new novel, but it will still have hundreds of pages worth of new Wizarding World content, and beggars can't be choosers.

'Hannibal' showrunner Bryan Fuller will helm the new 'Star Trek' for CBS

If you're not a believer in magic and you'd rather put your trust into science fiction, you can keep your eyes on the new Star Trek TV series that CBS is currently developing. This week they announced that Bryan Fuller will be taking the reins as showrunner. 

Fuller is known for his role running hit shows like Hannibal, but he actually got his start as a writer for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, so this isn't the first time he's exploring the final frontier.

The show is coming early next year, but there's a catch: Most of its episodes will be exclusive to CBS All Access, the streaming service that the network will want you to pay money to subscribe to.

'Deadpool' overcomes comic book fatigue with clever, over-the-top humor (B)

Hey, remember how the Deadpool movie was in development hell at Fox for more than six years and almost never got made? Well, it's out now, and it's awesome. But perhaps more miraculous is the fact that a sequel has already been greenlit.

Nothing else is known about Deadpool 2, but you could probably bet a lot of money that Ryan Reynolds will be back in the red suit.
