Another Wednesday, another Pop Culture Fix — crafted lovingly, just for you.

+ Please enjoy this Gentleman Jack deleted scene!

+ Sayani Gupta, Kirti Kulhari, Bani J, and Maanvi Gagroo all star in Amazon’s new series, Four More Shots, and it looks gaaaaay.

+ Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan wants Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy to get together in the Birds of Prey sequel.

+ The teaser trailer for Janelle Monae’s Homecoming is here and she’s absolutely smoochin’ a lady in it! Natalie made you a screenshot!

+ Fugitive production company has picked up the rights to Abby, a drama “based on the true story of Abby Stein, a young woman from New York, who used to be an ultra-Orthodox rabbi.”

+ Cameron Esposito chatted with The Advocate about releasing her memoir during a pandemic.

+ The cast of Grace and Frankie are doing a live-read of an unseen episode from the upcoming seventh season.

+ The Last of Us 2 has been delayed indefinitely, but I’m more excited for it than ever after reading a right wing blog that said it’s “pro-lesbian propaganda” with “Christian villains.”

+ Fox has cancelled Deputy, which isn’t a surprise, but is a bummer; Bex Taylor-Klaus was awesome in it.

+ Stay until the end!

+ Syfy is going to re-air all of Xena AND Battlestar Galactica! (Lucy Lawless is queer in both of ’em.)

+ Just a couple of gay dads on DuckTales (whoo-oooh!).
