YA Onscreen Things
This week on YA Onscreen: X-Files gets a second season, Shadowhunters gets a third, lots of TV casting news, and more!
Ross Butler won't be playing Reggie on Riverdale next season since it will conflict with S2 of Thirteen Reasons Why (which apparently is a thing that is happening).

Jeff Goldblum's not only hawking sausages (see below), he's headed back to the Jurassic Park franchise!
Anika Noni Rose has optioned Daniel Jose Older's Shadowshaper for film and TV.
Powerless has been pulled from NBC's schedule, which is super crappy. Alan Tudyk! Danny Pudi!
Robert Zemeckis might direct The Flash movie. Hmm.
Social Media Things
Maggie Stiefvater took part in a rather hilarious trend on Twitter this week:
This is pretty cool: old mascara wands can be recycled to help animals in need.
You can support a charity by buying a bundle of unicorn e-books!
Jeff Goldblum is giving out free sausages (snort) from a food truck called Chef Goldblum's in Sydney, and we all need to go to Australia IMMEDIATELY. #saltandpepper #CatDaddy
