There’s been a raft of geek TV news in recent days, and we round it up here.

Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot, Homecoming) will executive produce a new Battlestar Galactica series for the NBCUNiversal streaming service, now officially named Peacock, according to Deadline.  The series will not be a reboot; it will instead "explore a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar," Esmail tweeted later Tuesday.

Rainbow Group and Archery Pictures have begun production on a six-episode live action series based on Nickelodeon’s Winx Club for Netflix, according to DeadlineFate: The Winx Saga will star Abigail Cowen (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) as Bloom.  The Italian animated series had a run in the U.S. in the 00s, with cable and broadcast network TV exposure (see "4Kids TV Premiere Dates Announced"), graphic novels (see "Interview with Aker and Hamric, Part 2"), and a TCG (see "Upper Deck’s Trading Card Releases").

All 13 episodes of the animated adaptation of Skybound’s Super Dinosaur comic series will drop on Amazon Prime on October 6, series producers Skybound and Spin Master announced.  The first season has previously aired on Teletoon in Canada.  Merch is also on the way, but perhaps not to comic shops; The Spin Master toys will be available on Amazon in the U.S. and exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us in Canada.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic will go out with a bang after 221 episodes next month.  The series-ending event begins with a Pony Palooza takeover on Discovery Family on Sunday, October 6 running all day every day through the week leading up to the final episode.  On Friday, October 11, Discovery will air MLP: FIM – A Decade of Pony, a special giving a behind-the-scenes look at the series; and on Saturday, October 12, the 90-minute series finale will air.

A second Game of Thrones spin-off series is nearing a pilot order from HBO, according to Entertainment Weekly, one of five series the network had in development.  The second spin-off tells the history of the Targaryens, featuring many dragons.  A Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin’s history of House Targaryen, Fire and Blood, will serve as the basis of the series.  The first spin-off series, for which a pilot has been ordered, tells the origins of the white walkers and the early days of the House of Stark (see "HBO Orders Pilot for First ‘Game of Thrones’ Spinoff").

And a remaining announcement from D23, Disney Channel has ordered a first season of an animated series based on Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, with Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (black-ish), Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, and Steve Loter (Kim Possible) exec-producing.
