Those who haven’t learned to let go of the gut-wrenching, worlds-spanning His Dark Materials series don’t have to: BBC One has officially commissioned an eight-part series based on British author Philip Pullman’s trilogy. The saga, Nietzche’s Harry Potter if you will, is a philosophically sophisticated three-book journey with Lyra — a precocious child who teams up with fighting bears and battles rogue angels.

The series will be produced by Bad Wolf and New Line Cinemas. Bad Wolf is the production company of Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter — the BBC executives who relaunched Doctor Who — while New Line was behind the well intentioned but underwhelming first stab at Pullman’s books, The Golden Compass. (Daniel Craig is pretty but has no business as Lord Asriel.)

Pullman has given his blessing to the series, while Tranter has said, “ever since they were first published these books have been a huge influence on so much of my thinking and imagination, and it is enormously inspiring to be now working on them for television adaption.”

Loosely based on Milton’s Paradise Lost, the series — marketed as children’s books — have ranked in the top 10 banned books in the United States. Pullman has never cared. He will be in close tangent with the new television series and, according to The Guardian, is currently helping recruit a writer for the adaptation.

Fans will have to be satisfied with this news for a while — pre-production and casting will not begin until next year and BBC One has not set a date for the show’s debut.

As *The Flash dashes toward Season 5 on The CW, it looks to explore all the typical problems that traveling through time causes when you’re a super hero. So yes, more exciting things are in store for this addicting show that’s gained a cult following since its debut in October 2014.

HBO’s Animals has always felt different from everything else on TV. The anthology-style cartoon (created by Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano, and produced by the Duplass Brothers) tells quick, hilariously-inappropriate stories about the lives of rats, pigeons, bugs and other animals, all against the backdrop of modern-day New York City. But Season 3 is really different.

The very last week of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 challenges are here, and for Week 10, players have to solve a puzzle — or at least find a bunch of jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Week 10 challenges in Fortnite were released Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and perhaps the most fun challenge has players “search jigsaw puzzle pieces in basements.” This one’s just like previous challenges involving gnomes, rubber duckies, or even letters — there are many locations on the map that contain puzzle pieces, but players only need to get seven of them to complete the challenge. In this case, every puzzle piece will be located in some kind of basement, and it does seem like almost every basement on the map has one.

Anyone who still thought the original Purge films were a platform for dumb violence cynically propped up by political commentary was finally proved wrong this summer. By the release of the the fourth film on July 4, audiences knew what they were in for with Purge titles. Since 2013, the wildly popular horror franchise had carved out a niche by crafting an alternative universe that its creators suggest is not unlike our own.

The ongoing Road Trip Challenge for Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 could be turning apocalyptic.

Fortnite’s Week 9 kicked off Friday morning at 9 a.m. Eastern, and before long players uncovered the brand-new Road Trip Challenge loading screen. It’s one that might finally indicate the start of some broader plot that’ll launch us all into Season 6. The big Purple Cube has been an ominous presence for two weeks now, and now it’s front and center in the latest loading screen:
