Once Upon A Time Adds a New Villain to Season 4!



The most anticipated villain is coming to Storybrooke… and residents may want to hide their dogs. Especially dalmatians. (Side note: Has anyone ever seen a dog in Storybrooke before? They like don’t exist!)

Entertainment Weekly reports Dracula alum Victoria Smurfit has been cast as an “iconic character.” That iconic character will be none other than Cruella de Vil herself. I think the producers and writers were trying to keep the role very hush until the huge reveal during the winter finale, but Smurfit just couldn’t contain her excitement.

She tweeted this,”super excited about playing Cruella for such an iconic show as @OnceABC“, totally blowing the lid off the shows next “OMG moment.”

Other things pointing to her role as the anti-animal activist:

1. A fan reported seeing Belle (Emilie de Ravin) in a scene with a dalmatian.

2. She looks like Cruella.

3. The directors listed Cruella as one of the characters they hoped to tackle in the show.

Smurfit will likely become Storybrooke’s new villain in the second half of the season, replacing the Snow Queen. Honestly, whatever spin they give her and whatever her story line, I’m sure she’ll be way more interesting than the Snow Queen. Sorry, Frozen just isn’t doing it for me this season. Just like Neverland and Pan didn’t do it for me last season. However, it seems to be a trend for OUAT. The first half is always slow and boring and then the second half gets all crazy and wicked. Yes, like last seasons Wicked Witch addition. Brilliant. I feel like Cruella would be this seasons Wicked Witch.


Series co-creator Eddy Kitsis previously said, “The seeds are planted in the first 10 [episodes], so that when you see [the fall finale reveal] in 11 you go, ‘Ah, OK.’” So, keep an eye-out for that ah-ha moment! I’m sure it will be easier now that you know what your looking for… dalmatians, red heels, black and white hair, long yellow/spotted trench-coat… you know the works.

Share your excitement with us @Craveyoutv!

WATCH: Netflix Gives Fans Sneak Peek at 'Stranger Things' Season 4

What goes bump in the night?

The stranger kids make it a mission to find out in the most recent sneak peek for Stranger Things. 

The trailer, which premiered as part of Netflix’s “Tudum,” opens up with a family of four moving into a spacious, luxurious house. 

The kids begin to notice strange occurrences before they wind up lying lifeless on the floor. 

Flash-forward to the 1980s when the kids (now teens), along with Steve, arrive at the abandoned clues to find answers. 

The clip also includes a grandfather clock in the attic exploding as it strikes midnight. Based on the debris floating around it, it might just be the portal to the Upside Down. 

Season 4 is set to premiere in 2022 due to COVID-19 delays.

‘Controlling Britney Spears’ Documentary Premieres on FX and Hulu Tonight



Controlling Britney Spears Documentary

“Controlling Britney Spears,” a surprise sequel to the Emmy-nominated documentary Framing Britney Spears, premieres tonight on Hulu and FX at 10/9c.

The sequel will feature the accounts as told by insiders with intimate knowledge of Spears’ daily life under the conservatorship. Additionally, it will include a detailed confidential report previously published by The New York Times, that disclosed Spears talking to a court investigator in which she described the conservatorship as “an oppressive and controlling tool against her.”

According to TVLine, in the exclusive New York Times investigation, “a portrait emerges of an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored every move she made.”

Producer Liz Day said, “Britney’s situation raises a lot of important questions about the conservatorship system at large and whether it is working properly. We felt that it was in the public interest to examine that.”

Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, became the solitary conservator over her estate in 2008. Through this, he gained control over the most important aspects of her life including financial and medical decisions.

13 years later, now 39 years old, Spears is in a legal battle trying to end the conservatorship altogether to regain control over her life. The next court hearing is set for Wednesday, September 29.

Fans can watch the documentary on FX or Hulu starting at 10 p.m. 

The sequel comes just days before Netflix’s documentary titled Britney vs. Spears premieres on September 28.
