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!

Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds



Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds

Watching a show without your dog can be “ruff.”

A new report by found that as Americans increased their TV and streaming habits amid the pandemic, they have done so with a furry friend by their side. 

Per the report, 57% of dog parents admitted to waiting for their dog to get into the room before watching a show. 

Now, that isn’t entirely surprising because if you are a dog owner, you know dogs are great watching buddies… unless you have a dog like mine who barks at any animal on the screen. That makes things a bit more difficult, but still proves that he’s attentive! 

The report found that 78% of Americans said they watch TV with their dogs very often or always. 

Surprisingly, dogs were ranked #1 when asked who people prefer to chill out and watch TV with, with 40% of parents saying they’d choose their dog over a partner, friends, or even kids. And that’s because a majority of pet parents believe their pups are actively watching or reacting to what’s happening on the screen. (See my point above about my dog barking at animals on the screen!) 

To make the binge-watching experience that much better for their pets, 70% have admitted to accommodating their pup by allowing them on the couch, giving them blankets, and even moving over so the dog is comfortable. 

60% of pet parents even believe their dog has a favorite TV show, which would explain why 80% of dog parents admit to leaving their TV on for dogs when they’re not home. 

The most popular genres? Comedy and action, which makes sense – after a long day of lounging and taking walks, Fido needs a good laugh or to get invested in a dramatic car chase! 

During such uncertain times, there’s definitely comfort in knowing that you always have a TV buddy by your side! 

And let’s be honest… is there anything your dog isn’t doing with you these days?

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.
