A number of trailers for returning TV series and new movies were released at New York Comic Con 2021 last week, and if you haven’t watched any of them yet, here’s a quick list of the must-see teasers that debuted at this year’s annual fan convention.
Lost in Space season 3 (Netflix)
Netflix dropped a teaser trailer for the third and final season of Lost in Space last Thursday. In the clip, Will Robinson’s (Maxwell Jenkins) final transmission can be heard as short scenes of asteroid fields, spacecraft chases, and murderous robots play out.
“This is Will Robinson of the 24th Colonist Group. If you’re watching this recording, there’s a chance [that] things didn’t work out the way I hoped they would,” says Will. “I thought I could save everybody. I’m doing this so you all can survive because you’re my family and I love you. I just hope it’s enough. This is my final transmission.”
The video also confirms the return for Will’s mom Maureen (Molly Parker), dad John (Toby Stephens), siblings Judy (Taylor Russell) and Penny (Mina Sundwall), and the Robot (Brian Steele) whom he formed a tight bond with.
The 10-episode conclusion of the sci-fi drama, which is a reimagining of the 1965 series of the same name, will premiere on Netflix on December 1st.
The Expanse season 6 (Amazon Prime Video)
Released by Amazon Prime Video last Friday, the official teaser trailer for the sixth season of The Expanse is short but packed with intriguing shots. The 40-second video picks up with the solar system at war, as Marco Inaros (Keon Alexander) and his Free Navy continue to launch devastating asteroid attacks on Earth and Mars. As the tensions of war and shared loss threaten to pull the crew of the Rocinante apart, Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) reminds everyone that they have no other option but to continue the fight.
“We’re broken, trying desperately to keep ourselves going by pretending we’re not,” Avasarala says in the trailer. “We must remember the lives we’ve lost, the pain we’ve suffered because with every new attack, Inaros’ power grows.”
Aside from a few scenes of Inaros rallying some Belters of the Free Navy, the trailer also features a rather serious moment between him and his son, Filip (Jasai Chase Owens). “You and I are meant to be out here ― in the darkness, in the fight. That’s who we are born to be,” he tells his son.
Towards its end, the trailer cuts to Laconia, where the rogue Martian element fled to using the rings. Ring Builder space platforms can be seen in Laconia’s atmosphere, as well as the signature blue flash of the protomolecule. The video also includes a quick shot of a young girl comprised of protomolecules.
The six-episode season 6 of The Expanse will roll out weekly every Friday on Amazon Prime Video, beginning December 10th.
Star Trek: Discovery season 4 (Paramount Plus)
The New York Comic Con trailer for Star Trek: Discovery for season 4 sees leaders of Federation and non-Federation worlds working together against a mysterious threat unlike any they have encountered before. Until they understand the anomaly well enough to predict its path, billions of more lives will be at risk, so Captain Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and the rest of the U.S.S. Discovery crew courageously step up and warp straight into the anomaly.
“With so much at stake ― countless lives, futures, once we enter the anomaly, we’re going where no one has gone before. Wherever we come from, whatever our experience is, we’re all in this together. We cannot let fear define us at this moment,” Captain Burnham tells her crew before heading into the anomaly.
As revealed in the previous promo videos for the upcoming season, the anomaly, which is five light-years in size, behaves erratically and can go anywhere at any time without warning. Things look so dreadful that the Vulcans, Orions, and Ferengis decide to team up just to put an end to the destructive threat.
Star Trek: Discovery season 4 will premiere on Paramount Plus on November 18th.
Doctor Who season 13 (BBC America)
Just three weeks before the return of Doctor Who, BBC America dropped a new teaser for season 13 of the sci-fi series last Saturday. The 20-second clip features the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) sending a warning about the imminent arrival of The Flux. Whatever The Flux is, the Doctor reveals that “it’s bringing with it the Sontarans, Weeping Angels, creatures known as the ravages, and enemies from across the universe.”
In addition to the Doctor, Yaz (Mandip Gill) and new companion Dan (John Bishop) will also be featured in the eight-episode season, which will be the final outing for Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor. The new season will also introduce fans to the mysterious character Vinder, played by Game of Thrones’ Jacob Anderson.
Doctor Who season 13 is set to premiere on October 31st on BBC America.
Hanna (Amazon Prime Video)
Amazon Prime Video unveiled an official teaser for the upcoming third season of Hanna during the action drama’s New York Comic Con panel last Saturday. Packed with thrilling shots of explosive hand-to-hand combat, popping gunfire, and cars soaring over cliffs, the minute-long video introduces the character of series newcomer Ray Liotta.
As previously announced, Liotta is joining the David Farr-created series as Gordon Evans, a respected former military man and intelligence operative who wields incredible insider power. Evans sees himself as a visionary with a rigid moral code, a true patriot who will do what needs to be done to protect his country.
In season 3, Hanna (Esmé Creed-Miles) ― an extraordinary young woman created by the sinister organization Utrax and trained to be an assassin ― is now secretly trying to destroy Utrax from the inside to free herself from its grasp, all with the help of her previous nemesis, former-CIA agent Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos). Together, they have coerced high-ranking Utrax agent John Carmichael (Dermot Mulroney) into aiding their mission. But her fellow young assassins, Sandy (Áine Rose Daly) and Jules (Gianna Kiehl) and new foes are starting to suspect Hanna’s plot.
At some point in the teaser, Evans can be seen telling Wiegler (Mireille Enos) that he can guarantee Hanna’s safety, but only if she’s brought in.
Hanna will kick off its six-episode season 3 run on November 24th on Amazon Prime Video.
Psych 3: This Is Gus (Peacock)
Peacock dropped the first trailer for Psych 3: This Is Gus during the movie’s New York Comic-Con panel last Saturday. According to the promo video, the new movie finds fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his best friend Burton “Gus” Guster (Dulé Hill) working on “their most personal case yet” as they investigate the latter’s pregnant fiancée Selene (Jazmyn Simon), who may not be who she says she is. As revealed in the trailer, Selene’s real name is not even Selene and she’s still married to a mysterious man named Alan Decker (Allen Maldonado).
In addition to Roday and Hill, also set to reprise their roles from the previous Psych series and films are Maggie Lawson as Juliet O’Hara, Timothy Omundson as Carlton Lassiter, Kirsten Nelson as Karen Vick and Corbin Bernsen as Henry Spencer. Sage Brocklebank and Kurt Fuller are also back as Buzz McNab and Woody Strode, respectively, with English singer-songwriter Curt Smith set to guest star as himself.
