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!

Netflix Renews Spanish Drama 'Elite' for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members

We’ve got some elite news!

Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!

The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals. 

Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes. 

The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.

It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021. 

The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up. 

Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.

‘Younger’ Moving to Paramount+ for Seventh and Final Season – Watch the Emotional Sneak Peek

"Younger" The Unusual Suspect Review

Younger has a new home.

After six seasons at TV Land, the hit TV show about Liza Miller, a middle-aged, divorced mom who lies about being twenty-something to restart her career in publishing, is moving to Paramount+. 

ViacomCBS made the announcement during the streaming presentation on Wednesday. 

Paramount+ is a new streaming service that will replace CBS All Access. on March 4.

The base tier will cost $5 and include ads. For ad-free streaming, the monthly price will set you back $10.

Now, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you’re an avid TV watcher, adding yet another streaming service to your monthly bundle might not be totally feasible. 

Is ‘Younger’ Ending with Season 7? Hilary Duff Gives the Scoop

The good news is that the 12-episode final season will also air on TV Land. The catch? It will run delayed likely after the series wraps, which means you might not avoid spoilers.

Pick your battles, I guess. 

The move, while annoying for some, isn’t completely out of the blue. The series was supposed to the Paramount Network for its sixth season but ultimately stayed at TV Land. 

With such a dedicated fan-base and so much potential, it doesn’t seem like 12 20-minute episodes are going to provide a satisfactory conclusion. And I don’t think I’m ready for Liza to finally choose between #TeamJosh and #TeamCharles permanently.

The seventh season was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cast has been busy filming in New York as of late. 

And that’s why fans were able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season:

As Liza says, “embrace the past, accept the present, and keep moving forward.”

While it sure does seem like Liza picks Charles in the end, Sutton Foster promises that the final season will bring “all the emotional, all the laughs, and all the drama defined Younger and have made it the success it is.”

The series stars Foster, Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Charles Michael Davis and Peter Hermann.

Back in March, it was announced that Duff would be getting a spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters
