It’s the middle of the week, which is wild because it somehow also feels like last week and next week! I sometimes feel like this pandemic’s got me trapped in a Dr. Seuss book. Here’s your Wednesday Pop Culture Fix!
+ Weep for the beauty of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana on the new Spencer poster.
+ Finally! The news we’ve been waiting for! The Flash‘s upcoming five-part event, “Armageddon,” will feature a variety of Arrowverse characters including Ryan Wilder AND Alex Danvers! I just wish Thunder could’ve been there too.
+ Chyler Leigh is especially stoked to return as Alex.
+ “There’s been fights, there’s been tears”: The making of Impeachment: American Crime Story
+ The gameplay trailer for Life is Strange: True Colors introduces Alex’s love interests.
+ Good Trouble‘s Zuri Adele talks exploring Malika’s sexuality and her liberating poly relationship.
+ Gossip Girl stars want “all the OG characters to return and be queer.”
+ Gen Q showrunner Marja-Lewis Ryan chatted with Heavy about season two of the series and going from super fan to creator.
+ Jennifer Beals talked to NBC about what it’s like to make The L Word for a new generation.
+ Looks like Shay Mitchell will be playing gay again.
+ Inside Rachel Maddow’s massive new MSNBC deal.
+ It’s Mommi Season once again! The trailer for The Morning Show’s S2 is here.
+ RuPaul’s Drag Race has been renewed for season 14.
+ And Motherland: Fort Salem will be back for a third season.
Wow devastating about Betty, but I’d be at least as devastated if Motherland: Fort Salem was over, so at least there’s that. They’re both such incredible shows. HBO is mostly just good at making great things and then ruining them.

Heather: But HOW Does Kristen Stewart Look So Much Like Princess Diana?
Oh damn! That wasn’t meant to be so aggro! It was supposed to be an embedded gif that I will simply link to now to avoid further embarrassment: https://giphy.com/embed/mQz3Gi1Y2iGBeZhdjY/video
you have well encapsulated how i feel about participating on the internet.
I love Kristen, but I just don’t see the need for this film when The Crown literally exists. Even if she manages the accent, I don’t see her outperforming Emma Corrin or Elizabeth Debicki (now, SHE crazy looks like Diana in the promo shot). Princess Diana was a hugely important person to millions of people in the UK and commonwealth, and it’s annoying they cast an American to portray her.
