Every Halloween, we all collectively light the black flame candle to awaken the Sanderson sisters from their slumber. 

Why? Because Hocus Pocus is not only a staple of the spooky season, it’s a nostalgic reminder of our childhood. 

Each year, we also ask the question: what are the odds of a sequel?

This year, Bette Midler (Winifred “Winnie” Sanderson) finally gave us the answer. 

The 74-year-old said she would “absolutely” be up for reprising her iconic role. 

“I can’t wait to fly,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

This is good, no, great news, considering last year, Disney announced that sequel to the 1993 classic is in development.

While there hasn’t been much word on the revival (we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the pandemic’s fault), Disney would be setting itself up for failure if it didn’t capitalize on the obsession with Midler and her other two “sistahs” Sarah Jessica Park (Sarah Sanderson) and Kathy Najimy (Mary Sanderson). 

Midler seemed confident that the sequel will happen telling the outlet, “we’re just talking logistics.”

Midler has been very vocal about her desire to participate in a sequel. The year prior, she told ET that she hoped they get to her “before I’m a corpse,” adding that it could possibly debut on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+.

“We wanna fly again,” she added. “I hope Disney+ is a big success and I hope we get to do it, because [Winifred] is of course one of my favorite characters … I can’t wait to read the script. We’re gonna see what happens.”

 
 

While you may not get to see them in a sequel this year, the actresses are set for an epic reunion at Midler’s annual Hulaween fundraising gala, which will happen virtually this year due to coronavirus. 

Not much is known about the reunion itself, but the event is being called In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeoverso it’s definitely exciting for fans of the 90s film.

The reunion is set to take place on Friday 30th October 2020 at 8 p.m. EST. Tickets for the magical evening are available for $10 at NYRP

A personalized access link will be emailed to you in advance of the event!

When Does 'Firefly Lane' Season 2 Come Out?

The wait is almost over! 

Netflix is allowing fans to reunite with the Firefly Lane girls on December 2, 2022!

FireFly Lane Season 2 Part 1 will debut on Friday at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m ET and 2 a.m. CT) on the streaming service, and while that may be very late in the night, the good thing is you’ll have all weekend to catch up with Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke). 

 

Why Is Kate Mad at Tully at the End of Firefly Lane Season 1?

The biggest question on everyone’s mind is why is Kate so mad at Tully. At the end of the first season, it’s revealed that Kate’s father, Bud, died, but when her best friend Tully arrives at the church, Kate tells her that she has “some nerve showing up here.” Season 2 Part 1 will hopefully answer what led to the rift between Kate and Tully in 2004/2005.

 

How Many Episodes in Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 1?

The season will have a total of nine episodes. 

Part 2 of the season is set to arrive sometime in 2023 with episodes 10 through 16. 

 

Who Died on Firefly Lane Season 1?

Bud, Kate’s father, passed away in the first season. Kate and Tully are at his funeral when it’s revealed that they are not on speaking terms anymore despite a decades-long friendship.

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Cast

The key cast of the upcoming second season includes:

  • Katherine Heigl – Tully Hart
  • Sarah Chalke – Kate Mularkey
  • Ali Skovbye – ’70s Tully Hart
  • Roan Curtis – ’70s Kate Mularkey
  • Ben Lawson – Johnny Ryan
  • Beau Garrett – Cloud/Dorothy Hart
  • Yael Yurman – Marah
  • India de Beaufort – Charlotte/Charlie
  • Greg Germann – Benedict Binswagner
  • Jolene Purdy – Justine Jordan
  • Ignacio Serricchio – Danny Diaz

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Synopsis

What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever?” We’ll learn the answer this season — but first — Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from — including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud. In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match — that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.

Emily in Paris

‘Emily in Paris’ Season 3—Premiere Date and Trailer

Published

When Is Season 3 of Emily in Paris Coming Out?

Netflix is giving Emily in Paris fans the best holiday gift of all—a brand new season. 

The third season of the Paris-set dramedy is set to premiere on Wednesday, December 21. 

New shows are typically released globally at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time. 

Fans can also unwrap an early gift as the streamer just dropped the trailer for the new season, which reveals Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) is pulling double-duty in both her professional and personal life.

Her indecision has left her in a bit of a mess, as she’s now juggling two jobs—her old gig with Madeline (Kate Walsh) and a gig at Sylvie’s new agency (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu). On top of it, her heart is also being pulled in two different directions as she’s torn between chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) and businessman Brit Alfie (Lucien Laviscount). 

And based on the 2-minute trailer, her decisions will have plenty of consequences. 

But don’t think that Emily isn’t carving out time for prioritizing life, as Parisians do, as she informs her gal pal Mindy (Ashley Park) that she’s all about “life” right now.

The work-life balance includes stunning vacations (and a balloon ride),  incredible outfits, plenty of champagne, and much more.

As the trailer suggests, choose Paris… on December 21!
