SpoilerTV - TV Spoilers

The 2019 SpoilerTV Advent Calendar Countdown *Updated 9th December 2019*



This year, for Christmas, the SpoilerTV team came together to share our wishes for the new year. Every day, two of us will share what we asked from Santa, please share your own wishes, and your thoughts in the comments below!


December 9

Max Conte - I wish for Kate Walsh to be the hyped-up former cast member to return to Grey's Anatomy. Addison should be around for Amelia's delivery.

Abby Crofton - I desperately want for The Flash not to mess up Sue Dibny. For comics fans Ralph and Sue Dibney were one of the gold standard romantic relationships. That all got thrown down the dumpster with DC’s misguided Identity Crisis event, which treated Sue as horribly as any character in the history of comics. One instance where The Flash should stay far, far away from the source comics.

December 8

Naomi Anna My wish for Legacies is good ratings! This show has it all-heart, humor and we can't forget the monsters! This spin off is definitely one to watch. I hope that it gains more viewers this year.

Thomas Cori - My wish would be for networks to finally acknowledge international live viewership and find a way to include these numbers into the ratings. I travel a lot and find myself not being able to support my shows the way I'd like to, and I'm sure that I'm not the only one watching American TV abroad.

December 7

María Sol Gracía - A new rating system that includes the ever-changing TV habits. In the past few years, it’s become clear that watching TV had change drastically and I understand there have been some slight adjustments in the way the ratings are measured but I think this system could use a full makeover that takes into account that people is not watching TV the same way they did 20 years ago, otherwise numbers are going to keep dropping with every passing year.

Naomi Anna My wish for Power is that Ghost truly suffers for all the pain he has caused everyone around him. He has been the villain of the show all along and deserves the fate that is hopefully coming to him. Fingers crossed!

December 6

Abby Crofton - Supergirl is a show which features many traumatized characters, including two survivors of their species’ near extinction. It would be great if they could talk with someone about their issues rather than repressing their feelings. Maybe they could get a group therapy discount?

María Sol García - Disney+ available everywhere in the world in early 2020. I think it would be fair that more countries have the opportunity to get access to Disney+, cause in the meantime people that don’t live in the US, Canada, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico have to wait, in some cases, almost a year (or even more) to discover and enjoy the full catalogue of this new streaming service, and risking being spoiled by those that are already watching it.

December 5

Naomi Anna - My wish for Daredevil is to see it picked up for a new season! It was such a great show with top notch acting from Foggy to Kingpin, and that's not even mentioning Daredevil himself. The heart, the combat and the will they, won't they was so hard to let go. Please Marvel, let someone pick this winner back up!


Pop Culture Guy - Dynasty’s” decision to bounce the character of Steven Carrington from the canvas has baffled me basically since the show did it in season two. In one episode, Steven not only finds out that Blake isn’t his biological father, but that he’s also not the father of the baby the woman he had a one-night stand with to keep Sam in the country is carrying, but by the end of the very next episode, he’s gone. And that might have been okay if the show hadn’t strung out his absence with off-screen phone calls and then wrapped it up by repeatedly victimizing him, first by having Steven have a mental breakdown, then by revealing he’d been gaslit by his half-brother, and finally by leaving him to rot in a Parisian mental hospital with barely a mention since. There’s so much untapped potential with this character and I’d like to see him return to the canvas in a real way. And while I thought James Mackay was fine and would be fine with him returning, basically since the reboot was announced, I’ve dream-cast Scott Evans in this role. The show actually did a good job recasting Cristal both times and made a smart choice for the Alexis recast. And anyone who watched him on daytime sudser “One Life to Live” knows Captain America’s brother can bring soap drama, comedy, and romance, and having an out actor playing this tentpole character would be a cool bonus. So yeah, Steven Carrington in 2020, preferably with Scott Evans’ face.

December 4

Julia Krassnik - The Good Fight: A significantly younger person falls for Diane Lockhart
When the term “May-September romance” is mentioned most people’s minds immediately imagine an older guy and a significantly younger woman who have entered a relationship with each other. Especially on TV shows and films, a woman over 50 being wooed by a younger man is an occurrence rarer than a total solar eclipse. Therefore, I would absolutely love to see a person significantly younger than Diane Lockhart to fall for the lawyer and try their very best to romance her. It does not necessarily have to go anywhere as Diane is happily married (though her husband had an affair with one of his former students!) but I sure would like to see her feeling flattered by the attention of a lovely young guy (or girl, I’m not picky).

Laura B - I wish for Disney+ to announce either a series that takes place post the events of The Rise of Skywalker or a Knights of the Old Republic series.

December 3

Ellys Cartin - With Poldark and the Durrells ending, and no new season of Gentleman Jack until 2021, I want some new period dramas to rise up and hook my attention next year.

Laura B - I would like for Starz to announce a Lord John Grey mini-series series staring David Berry.


December 2

Milo M-J - Line of Duty Season 6 to answer the mystery of who H is next season! We got an answer in Season 5! Sort of. Except, not really – it turns out there is more than just one person operating as H – four “Caddies” if you will, and with three of them are known and have been dealt with, the leader behind the criminal organisation inside the police that AC-12 are out to locate is still a secret. After Adrian Dunbar’s Ted Hastings came under suspicion last season to be cleared he’s out of the equation for now; but Line of Duty’s criminal mastermind could feature just about anyone, and assuming that we do most likely get Season 6 in 2020 as rumoured, Jed Mercurio can’t afford to keep us in the dark for another season.

Lisa Macklem - Please bring back Eric Kripke to write at least the final episode of Supernatural. Kripke's five years were the best the show has ever been, and it seems only fitting to have the creator of the show finish what he started - who would know better what the fate of the Winchester brothers and Castiel should be?!


December 1

Kath M - How about more Sci-Fi on Syfy? There are literally hundreds of movies, TV shows and mini-series that could be taken out and dusted off. How about some Dead Like Me? The Martian Chronicles? The Thing from Another World? Even newer shows like BSG seem to air once and then vanish. Are the same movies they show every week really bringing in higher ratings than an afternoon of Defiance might? I want Sci-if diversity for the holidays!

Abby Crofton - Far too often movies and TV shows featuring lesbians are dramatic and dour. I’d enjoy a sitcom instead, with lesbian characters getting into zany situations rather than dying or being melodramatic. Bonus if there’s a slow burn romance that has a happy ending.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
