Ready for some more recent newsy nuggets? Well…

* Elite vet Miguel Bernardeau will headline a Zorro series reboot, which will stream exclusively on Prime Video in the U.S., Latin America and Spain, our sister site Variety reports. The actor will play a new version of Diego de la Vega, a landowner and masked hero of the people, while Mexico’s Renata Notniof will portray Lolita Marquez, the love of his youth. (For those counting, this is the third recent Zorro project, with Wilmer Valderrama set to star in an update of the 1950s ABC series for Disney Branded Television, and The CW handing a six-episode script order to a female-led Zorro series.)

* Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens has been renewed for Season 3 at Comedy Central, per Deadline.

* Kerry Washington (Scandal) and Delroy Lindo (The Good Fight) will star in the comedy Unprisoned from Onyx Collective, streaming on Hulu. Inspired by the life of Terry McMillan, the half-hour series is about “a messy but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom (Washington) whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad (Lindo) gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son.”

* Apple TV+ has released a trailer for Carpool Karaoke: The Series Season 5, debuting Friday, May 27. Guests include Simu Liu, Jessica Henwick, Murray Bartlett, Alexandra Daddario, Sydney Sweeney, Anitta, Saweetie, Zooey Deschanel, Jonathan Scott, stars from All Elite Wrestling, and the D’Amelio family.
