Here's the Scoop...

Here's the Scoop...I am so excited for 'Cobra Kai' Season 2! I can't wait for April - Spring and Cobra Kai! Bring it on!

Season 2 of The Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai is scheduled to premiere on YouTube Red on April 24.

The critically acclaimed series features William Zabka and Ralph Macchio reprising their roles of Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso from the 1984 movie.

Instead of competing high-school karate students, the now-adult characters are rival martial arts teachers.

Martin Kove, who played Johnny's ruthless sensei and father figure Kreese in The Karate Kid, has joined the cast for Season 2 of Cobra Kai after a Season 1 cameo.

Are you ready to bow to your sensei and watch Cobra Kai?

Be Well,
Steve

Alex Trebek diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer

Longtime Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek announced Wednesday that doctors diagnosed him with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The 78-year-old said that though the prognosis for the disease is often not optimistic, he plans to fight and asked for his fans' prayers.

"Now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I'm going to fight this, and I'm going to keep working," Trebek said in a recorded message to supporters. "And with the love and support of my family and friends and with the help of your prayers also, I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease."

Neither Trebek nor the game show offered any details on how his treatment would affect the filming or airing of Jeopardy!. He said he wants to recover soon so he can return to duties.

"Truth told, I have to! Because under the terms of my contract, I have to host Jeopardy! for three more years!" he said. "So help me. Keep the faith and we'll win. We'll get it done. Thank you."

The American Cancer Society says the five-year relative survival rate for distant pancreatic cancer -- which includes Stage 4 -- is 3 percent.

Olivia Newton-John enjoying 'every day' amid cancer battle

Olivia Newton-John is feeling grateful and enjoying "every day" amid her battle with cancer.

The 70-year-old Australian singer and actress gave an update on her health and explained why she kept her second bout with cancer secret in an interview Friday on Today.

"Of course [I have fear]. I mean, everyone does. We're all going to die -- I mean, that's probably the hardest thing to accept as a human being," Newton-John said. "I kind of consider I've had a gift of extra time."

"I'm very grateful. I'm 70 and I've had the most amazing life," she added. "I have extra time -- so whatever that is, I'm grateful for it and I'll just enjoy every day."

Newton-John was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, and was diagnosed again in 2018. She confirmed there was a second bout with cancer in 2013 she kept secret from the public.

"Because of the speculation," the star explained. "I just decided I wanted to go through it myself."

The Grease star is undergoing hormone therapy, radiation and injections to strengthen her bones and taking herbs, supplements and medical cannabis, in addition to her positive outlook.

"[I'm] winning over [cancer]," the actress said. "I think what you think creates your reality ... I try to always deal with it in a positive way."

Newton-John said in an Instagram video in January rumors of her death had been "greatly exaggerated." She discusses her journey in her memoir, Don't Stop Believin', which debuts March 12 in the U.S.

??? Guess Who ???

Which British actor may play Deadshot in the 'Suicide Squad' sequel?

Stephen Amell confirms 'Arrow' will end with Season 8

Sale 99centStephen Amell said Season 8 of Arrow will be the DC superhero drama's last.

The final 10 episodes will begin airing on The CW this fall.

"Playing Oliver Queen has been the greatest professional experience of my life... but you can't be a vigilante forever," Amell tweeted Wednesday.

"There's so much to say... for now I just want to say thank you."

The comic-book adaptation co-stars David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Katie Cassidy, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Colton Haynes, Kirk Acevedo and Sea Shimooka.

"This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we've made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind," series executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz said in a joint statement to Variety.

They added: "We're heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We're excited about crafting a conclusion that honors the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and -- more importantly -- the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years."

Amell also posted an emotional, 8-minute video on Facebook, thanking the cast, crew and fans for their hard work and support.

He also revealed that he had told the producers at the end of Season 6 that he wanted to "move on" from the show when his commitment was up the following season. They ultimately agreed what would be best is for Amell to return for an abbreviated season that would be the show's last.

"I've always been a fan of television shows that not only don't overstay their welcome, but end in a manner that really packs a punch," he said. "And, so, it had always been my hope that we were going to finish this journey and not limp to the finish line."

Helen Hunt, Paul Reiser confirmed for 'Mad About You' revival

Mad About You co-stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt confirmed Wednesday that they will reprise their roles as Paul and Jamie Buchman in a revival of the New York-set sitcom.

"We are so excited to finally be doing this and thrilled to have Peter Tolan as our fearless captain," Reiser and Hunt said in a joint statement. "We promise you the same funny and heartwarming show -- as soon as we can remember what's funny about being older. It's going to be great!"

Hunt will also direct the first episode of the limited series, while Tolan will serve as showrunner.

Danny Jacobson, who co-created the show with Reiser, is an executive consultant on the project.

"I TOLD you we were working on it. So happy to finally get the band back together! And getting to work with the great Peter Tolan," Reiser tweeted.

The collaboration between Charter Communications' premium content initiative, Spectrum Originals,

and Sony Pictures Television is expected to debut late this year.

"Two decades ago, fans fell in love with this show, and this time will be no different as Paul, Helen and Peter explore modern marriage through the eyes of two people who have just become empty-nesters. We can't wait for everyone to fall in love with the Buchmans all over again,?"? said Katherine Pope, Spectrum Originals' head of original content.

The show initially ran on NBC 1992-99.

Which British actor may play Deadshot in the 'Suicide Squad' sequel?

Idris Elba may play the anti-hero Deadshot in the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.

Variety reported Wednesday the 46-year-old British actor is in talks for the role after Will Smith, who played Deadshot in the Suicide Squad, dropped out of the DC sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter said Elba met with director James Gunn about the project Friday. Sources said Elba was Gunn and Warner Bros.' first and only choice to replace Smith.

Sources said Suicide Squad 2 will mostly feature characters who didn't appear in the original film, although Deadshot, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman) are expected to return.

Deadline said Gunn hopes to begin production in Atlanta, Ga., in September. Suicide Squad 2 is slated to open in theaters Aug. 6, 2021.

News broke last week Smith was leaving the sequel due to scheduling issues. The actor will reportedly play Venus and Serena Williams' father and former tennis coach, Richard Williams, in the new movie King Richard.

Elba plays Heimdall in Thor and other movies in the Marvel cinematic universe. He is also known for starring in the BBC series Luther, which released its fifth season in January.
