Inside Line: Scoop on Superman & Lois, The Mandalorian, The Blacklist, 9-1-1, CSI: Vegas, Gotham Knights and More

Superman and Lois spoilers Season 3

How is Superman & Lois‘ love life? Who will be left standing when The Blacklist ends? How much time has passed on The Mandalorian? Read on for answers to those questions plus scoop on many other shows. (You can and should email any brand-new Qs to InsideLine@tvline.com.)

We know that first season of The Mandalorian was set in 9 ABY (five years after Return of the Jedi). Is it the same with other seasons, and shows set in same period, or have we moved to another year? –Michal
I ran your question by EPs Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni on Monday, Michal, and the latter said that while he didn’t have his “specific notes” in front of him, “I don’t think we’re quite to 10 ABY.” But then… but then there were reports out of some other junket where Favreau said that Seasons 1 and 2 of Mando spanned “many years,” and that Grogu studied under Luke for “two years.” (I promptly pulled a Charlie Cale in this Twitter thread.) It looks like Favreau walked back those quotes a bit the other night (saying Grogu was with Luke for “zero to two years”). If it sheds any extra light, Favreau told me on Monday, “We talk about this so much,” especially since “we also have Ahsoka and The Skeleton Crew [coming up], which are taking place in the same time period…. But yes, we’re still in ‘the first third of the second gap'” in the nine-movie Skywalker Saga.

Will any obscure Batman villains be appearing on The CW’s Gotham Knights, or will it be more mainstream villains? And is there an Alfred Pennyworth in the show? –Ivan
Our guy covering the show says that so far, at least in the first six episodes, the primary villains are from the New 52 continuity (which ran from 2011-’16). And while Cressida Clarke (played by God Friended Me‘s KK Moggie) is the Wayne family butler, she does not fill the same role that Alfred famously did.
