Gossip Girl

This Gossip Girl reboot takes place almost a decade after the original series and shows just how different teenage life (and technology) has changed. The series exists in the same universe as the original Gossip Girl, but airing on HBO Max, we expect it to be way more risque than the original.

American Horror Stories

This Ryan Murphy spinoff will be a spooky episodic anthology series, where each episode will be totally different. Think Black Mirror with a dash of American Horror Story.

Boba Fett and Foundation. That's it. The rest of this list is awful. Disney is fully set up, once again, to ruin another franchise by over-saturating the market to make as much money as possible. They don't care about quality, only quantity.

Nora,

I suppose one day they will even stoop to making a Jarjar Binks saga too.

Let's hope that the Foundation series will be better than the Ender mess.
