At last it’s online — Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal Theater’s Starpocalypse is here, and your universe will never be the same again!
You probably already knew this, if you're a Star Trek fan. But it's really true. YouTube is just bursting with original Star Trek content lately, from damn near spot-on recreations of the Original Series to continuations of the TNG/DS9/Voyager era. This is the golden age of Star Trek web productions.
Firefly stars Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk have rejoined forces on Con Man, a new Indigogo-funded project about a struggling actor living in the science fiction convention world. io9 sat down both actors to discuss the show, their careers, and the Mexican restaurant that first brought them together.
I don't know much about Sid and Marty Krofft's classic '70s superhero show Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, and about all I know about the reboot is that it's a webseries being made by Legendary, starring Grace Helbig and Hanna Hart. Well, that and their new outfits are pretty great.
io9 is proud to be presenting the final episode of season 1 of Haphead, the series about gamers in a dystopian future Toronto. Maxine finally discovers how her father died — and it's a very interesting twist that I didn't see coming. Plus we get a peek into the future world of biohacking, which is damn cool.
io9 is proud to be presenting weekly episodes of Haphead, the story of a gamer in dystopian future Toronto. In this week's episode, Maxine investigates the death of her father. Things start to get seriously disturbing, especially when she visits a mall that only allows people from the "right" income bracket.
io9 is proud to be bringing you new episodes of indie series Haphead every week. Created by Jim Munroe, Haphead is the story of a VR gamer in a near-future dystopian Toronto. In the sixth episode, Maxine discovers where all the underground hapheads hang out — and what they do together.
io9 is proud to be bringing you weekly installments of the indie scifi series Haphead, created by Jim Munroe, about a VR gamer living in a dystopian future Toronto. In the fourth installment of the series, Maxine tries to help her depressed dad, a former punk gone corporate. And that's when things get creepy.
This Thursday, we'll be posting the first two episodes of Haphead, the new web series from the brain of Jim Munroe (Infest Wisely, Ghosts With Shit Jobs). Here's the trailer.
Summer Glau is in tons of science fiction shows and movies, but how does she interact with her non-human co-stars when the cameras stop rolling? The fun new web series Jeff 1000 follows a 10-foot tall robot actor who hangs out with Glau both at work and in their private time.
We fell in love at first alien encounter with Natasha Allegri's animated short Bee and PuppyCat, and now it's an ongoing animated webseries. Two new episodes have arrived, giving us another of the duo's space temp jobs.
A group of fans has been hard at work making a live-action Dragonball Z webseries, subtitled Light of Hope, and it looks pretty outstanding. Admittedly, calling it better than the Hollywood Dragonball movie isn't saying much, but I figured multiplying it by a million would put it in the range of "not bad at all!"
Behold the "bootleg" animated Judge Dredd webseries in its entirety. And it is dark, gross, and violent—and honestly I felt weird watching it at work. And that's probably the very feeling that the creator wanted to impart to the audience.
Halo: Nightfall is a live-action, five-part digital series that leads up to Halo 5: Guardians. This trailer introduces the backstory of Halo 5's new playable character Jameson Locke as he and his team are caught up in a horrific terrorist attack.

Behold the first-ever footage from the unauthorized (or, as the creator is calling it, bootleg) animated series JUDGE DREDD: Superfiend. This teaser trailer looks insane. Good.
We love how so much of the marketing for the Hunger Games movies builds on the world of Panem, and the new web series to promote Mockingjay, District Voices, is a perfect example of that. In each episode, members of a Panem district describe their labor with Capitol-enforced cheer.
Still waiting around for the next Dredd movie? Well we've got something that might help curb the hunger: a first look at the unofficial animated Dredd series.
