Pop Culture Fix: Cinematic Masterpiece “A Simple Favor” Is Getting a Sequel

Happy Wednesday, friends. Tis the season for cancellations and renewals; may the odds be ever in your favorite show’s favor!


+ Speaking of favors… A SIMPLE FAVOR SEQUEL. It’s no secret that we were at Autostraddle dot com love the gay American classic A Simple Favor so imagine our delight when a sequel was announced, with Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, and their insane chemistry returning to us once again.

+ Dollface was canceled after two seasons because the universe hates me, specifically, apparently

+ It’s the Age of Ariana DeBose and we’re just living in it… next up: Westworld!!

+ SYFY brought Surreal Estate and its bisexual office manager back from the dead and continues to ignore our pleas to save Wynonna Earp

+ The much-anticipated Queen Latifah/Jordan Hull movie Hustle dropped a trailer

+ All Rise returns June 7th

+ The Young and the Restless had their first same-sex marriage which is what I believe they call “sadgressive.” Technically progressive but sad that it took this long.

+ I can’t read this article about Scream 6 yet because I still haven’t seen Scream 5 (Scr5am) but I saw Jasmin Savoy Brown’s name so you should!

+ P-Valley dropped their Season 2 trailer

+ Also hi I know we’ve mentioned it before but can we talk about these first look images from First Kill aka the lesbian vampire show featuring Gracie Dzienny aka baby gay Greer from Chasing Life??

In a poster of First Kill from Netflix, it is night and two lesbian vampires are holding each other with the shorter vampire, a white teen with blonde hair, is holding hands with her back to a second vampire, a black teenager with long black hair. The teens have their mouths opens showing their fangs, as they are about to kiss.
