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!

Will ‘Manifest’ Get a Season 4 After All?

Manifest Season Finale Review Mayday Part 1 and 2 Season 3 Episode 12 and 13

Merely weeks after the devastating cancellation of NBC’s ManifestTVLine confirms that the network has been in talks with Warner Bros. and Netflix about a possible Season 4. However, reps for NBC, Netflix, and Warner Bros. have refused to comment for now.

Following the news of the supernatural drama’s abrupt ending in mid-June, fans took to social media with the hashtag #SaveManifest in hopes of reversing the decision and getting it picked up by another network.

After the release of the first two seasons on streaming services, the series quickly dominated the charts. It remained on Netflix’s “Top 10” watched shows for 27 consecutive days and Nielsen’s weekly streaming chart during the week of June 14.

Jeff Rake, Manifest’s showrunner, tweeted in late June, “Your support is awe-inspiring…we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story.”

While Rake has not confirmed that another season is officially happening, he did note: “Lots of speculation out there. No comment. Other than, if the impossible happens and the dead rise again, it’s because of YOU.”

Whatever it takes, Rake will even choose to produce a two-hour movie to bring closure to Manifest.

So Manifesters, you’ve been heard, and you can only get louder from here! Will the answers you’ve been waiting for resurface in a possible Season 4 pick-up? Will 828 fly again?
