For a moment there, it seemed like 2020 was going to be a horrible year. But then the second season of The Mandalorian was announced and there was hope again, hope that a second season would mean more baby Yoda and less of anything resembling a storyline. Just put the child on the screen and let the cameras roll. Disney+ also announced rollout dates for its Marvel spinoff shows centering around Loki, Wanda Maximoff, Vision, Bucky Barnes, and Sam Wilson. But as always, Quibi is not far behind when it comes to new content.
