Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist fans, your prayers are working! 

The musical dramedy, which was canceled earlier this year, may finally get some closure.

According to TV Line, streaming player Roku is closing in on a deal for a two-hour wrap-up movie. 

The outlet notes that if picked up, the finale movie would debut on The Roku Channel just in time for the holidays. 

Even better… if the finale gets good ratings, the streamer might even order additional episodes. 

EW reports that the series is in advanced negotiations, so it’s looking promising. The full cast, including Jane Levy and Skylar Astin, would likely return though deals would have to be finalized first. 

This means that all the social media hashtags worked, but it’s kind of a bummer that NBC didn’t see the value of giving fans a proper ending. 

And truthfully, leaving dedicated fandoms high and dry seems to be a common problem for the network — see Good Girls and Manifest. It almost makes me not want to get invested in any other shows out of the fear that they’ll be canceled just as they’re getting good! 

I know there’s a lot that goes into renewals, including budgets that include cast salaries, but there has to be a better alternative than canceling shows and leaving fans with a plethora of questions. 

When Timeless was canceled (still a huge mistake!), fans rallied and NBC agreed to a TV movie finale, which worked so well. It may not have been what the show creators envisioned, but at least it gave fans a chance to say a proper goodbye.

Why can’t we get wrap-up films for all the prematurely canceled shows? Especially since many of these shows hit Netflix and pick up a huge audience! Manifest continues to be one of the top 10 shows on Netflix! 

Let’s hope that for the sake of Zoey’s fans that the deal with Roku goes through and come Christmas time, we’ll have a nice gift waiting for us!

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.

Freeform's 31 Nights of Halloween

I smell… a cook booo-ooo-ookk!

Hocus Pocus is a staple Halloween movie. Despite premiering nearly 30 years ago, it continues to be the go-to choice every Halloween.

It’s so iconic, in fact, that Freeform is airing it a whopping 14 times throughout the month of October as part of its annual “31 Nights of Halloween” schedule!

You’ll obviously need treats and potions to keep yourself and your loved ones satiated during the viewing party, which is where The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook: Bewitchingly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Halloween Classic comes into play. 

The spooky cookbook, written by Bridget Thoreson, features all the best and mysterious recipes from the 1993 film.

There’s something for everyone as some fan-favorite dishes include: Baked Witch Casserole; Mischief Night Pasta; Bones of 100 Chickens; Life Potion Soup; Dead Man’s Toes; Airhead Virgin Mocktail; and much more!

“I hope you enjoy this homage to Hocus Pocus as much as you enjoy the film itself,” author Bridget Thoreson said in the press release. “While blondies are no substitute for Bette and no cocktail is quite as funny as hearing a young girl humiliate her older brother by saying ‘Yabos,’ I hope you’ll find the recipes and references fun, delicious, and delightfully spooky, and you’ll rewatch the film again and again accompanied by the goodies in this booo-ooooo-ooook.”

The cookbook is the perfect gift for all ages, and a must-have for every fan, especially the OG ones.
