In the years since Ellen DeGeneres introduced the first out character on prime-time television, openly LGBTQ characters have arrived — and thrived — on networks from ABC to SyFy to TeenNick.
And now, add the Disney Channel to the list.
Cyrus Goodman (Joshua Rush), a lead character on the show “Andi Mack,” will come out as gay in the premiere of the show’s second season.
Unlike the channel’s previous openly LGBTQ characters, many of whom appeared briefly or in one-off episodes, Cyrus will get his own season-long arc in which he discovers, reveals, and grows into his identity.
“‘Andi Mack’ is a story about ‘tweens’ figuring out who they are,” said Disney Channel in a statement provided to Deadline. “[Executive Producer] Terri Minsky, the cast, and everyone involved in the show [take] great care in ensuring that it’s appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity.”
The move won immediate raves on social media from entertainment industry vets.

The video itself doesn’t have new footage, but recaps the past seven seasons and the journey of everyone in Westeros until this point. But as we know, everything so far has been child’s play compared to the war between the living and the dead.
“There’s only one war that matters,” Jon Snow narrates, a quote from Season 7. “And it is here.”

The new season of ‘Outlander’ is one of its best
‘Outlander’ finds a new home in America for Season 4
Another season of Outlander — another leap into relocation to new political upheaval.
“After four years of this pattern, you’d think the gimmick would get old. But the time-traveling period drama might’ve actually found its most fascinating and fertile ground yet in the new frontier of Season 4’s colonial America.
The reunited Frasers landed on American shores after last season’s almost-fatal trek around the world. And as the couple now seeks to make a home in the Land of the Free, they come to discover that its citizen are a lot more backwards than the beautiful but dangerous woods they’re trying to tame.
It might be the bias of actually living in the country that Outlander is now set in. But by delving into the seedy underbelly of America’s ugly origins, the show has never felt more relevant than it does now in 2018. Slavery, Native American genocide, the dangers of being gay: Outlander Season 4 does not hesitate to entangle itself in the diciest territories of this country’s legacy.
Of course, Outlander never shied away from the discomfort of how history can collide with modern sensibilities………………………………………”
Trailer for ‘True Detective’ Season 3 is here
“HBO’s True Detective has always been half about solving crimes and half about the people who solve them.
