TV News Roundup: Gotham Recasts Poison Ivy for Season 3, Netflix Announces ‘Narcos’ Season 2 Date

Fox is recasting the role of Poison Ivy for Season 3, and a “Rush Hour” alum has joined the CBS “MacGyver” reboot. Plus, Netflix has announced the premiere date for “Narcos” Season 2, in today’s TV news roundup. 

CASTING

Gotham is recasting the role of Ivy Pepper because the character is getting a villainous makeover for Season 3. Although no replacement has been announced for Clare Foley (who has recurred in the first two seasons), Fox will be bringing back the character with an upgrade — as Poison Ivy. The news was first reported by TV Line.

Maya Rudolph and Martin Short will be joined by John Cena, Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, Eva Longoria and Ben Stiller on the newest episode of NBC’s “Maya & Marty,” which has welcomed guest stars Miley Cyrus, Larry David, Drake, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Tom Hanks and Steve Martin in its first season. The new episode of “Maya & Marty” airs June 14 at 10 p.m. on NBC.

Justin Hires, who starred in CBS’s short-lived “Rush Hour,” has joined the cast of “MacGyver,” which premieres this fall. Hires’ casting, first reported by Deadline, comes as the reboot of the original 1980’s series is being retooled from the original pilot with four new series regulars being added to the project, including Hires. He will play Wilt Bozer, MacGyver’s (Lucas Till) roommate. The gig keeps Hires in the CBS family, as the actor/comedian was discovered through the network’s diversity showcase in 2011, before being cast in “Rush Hour,” which was cancelled after one season.

DATES

Narcoswill be back with its second season September 2 on Netflix. The Season 2 date was announced with a cryptic video.

A&E has announced the premiere date of their new series Black and White,” hosted by Christian Finnegan and Sherrod Small. The weekly in-studio series will tackle race and the biggest headlines in the media. “Black and White” premieres on July 13 at 10:30 pm.
