  Life is Strange 2 trailer introduces its tale of two brothers Our first full look at the next game in the Life is Strange universeUnlike the previous set of episodes, Life is Strange 2 will focus on two boys: brothers Sean Diaz and Daniel Diaz. Sean is 16, closer to the age of our original protagonists; meanwhile, Daniel is only nine. After Sean gets in trouble with the cops in their southern Seattle home, he takes Daniel with him as they escape to Mexico. The older brother will have to focus on protecting his brother from the wilderness, even as memories of his fatal tussle with the police keep coming back.

Designing Women is coming back to television.

Twenty-five years after its original seven-season run, the series is poised to return with a sequel on ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The network has given original series creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and executive producer Harry Thomason (who is also Bloodworth-Thomason’s husband) a script commitment for a show that will follow the next generation of Sugarbakers and a group of young female designers at an Atlanta interior design firm.

  2018 iPhones may have faster wireless charging thanks to a new copper coil Of the myriad changes Apple made to its iPhone line last year, one of the most intriguing was the addition of wireless charging. Though wireless charging has been employed by other phone makers for years, Apple finally jumped on the bandwagon in 2017, with its future phones expected to support the technology as well. Unfortunately, Apple’s wireless charging speeds didn’t stack up well against most Android devices, but that might change in 2018.

The project has reportedly been in the works for months at ABC and will be produced by the same studio at Sony Pictures Television as the original.

“I’m very excited to be working with ABC,” Bloodworth-Thomason told THR. “And Sony has always been a great partner for Designing Women. Normally, I’m not a fan of reboots but Designing Women does seem to have the right feng shui for all that is going on right now. We could definitely have some fun.”

The original Designing Women, which was notable for its strong female cast, quippy one-liners, and unapologetic tackling of hot-button political, social, and gender issues, starred Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Annie Potts, Jean Smart, and Meshach Taylor. It ran on CBS from 1986 to 1993.

Back in March, Potts, who currently stars on CBS’ Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon, told EW she’d be up for a Designing Women revival, so it seems likely familiar faces could appear on the sequel. “I would love that,” Potts said at the time. “I don’t know when I’d find the time for it, but I think that they could use a show like Designing Women — feisty smart women that didn’t take any B.S. from anybody.

“Every Monday night was a MeToo moment for us, and we were talking about it; we were very political,” she added. “I’m sad that there’s not such a strong voice, I don’t think, in any singular show. Nobody is doing what we did then. So yeah, if [Bloodworth-Thomason] wanted to write six episodes and do it in my hiatus, I would be there in a minute.”

‘I was doing more things wrong than I was doing right because children are deeply honest.'"He was pretty much in the driving seat for the most of it, and I did use him as my anthology and mythology wizard,” Hardy tells ET of his son at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Monday. "He told me what I was doing wrong and I was doing more things wrong than I was doing right because children are deeply honest. He was my little spirit guide in that aspect. So as far as I’m concerned, I passed his [test], and that’s the best I could do.
