season 2

Anyone who watched (binged) Dirty John on Netflix will understand why we're fascinated by season two. The show gripped millions of viewers with twists and turns, but HOW can they continue it?

The first season was based on the Wondery Los Angeles Times true crime podcast and series of articles of the same name, featuring the intense love affair between Debra Newell and John Meehan which turns insanely dark faster than you can handle.

A press release from USA Network has divulged that the second season of the hit show will focus on one of the messiest divorces in American history, culminating in a double homicide.

Connie Britton and Eric Bana starred as the interior designer who falls for a con artist who is determined to ruin her life and steal her fortune. Newell quickly discovers that John isn't who he says he is.

Dirty John only has one season on the podcast, so initially it was unknown whether the TV series would even get a second season commissioned.

We now know that season two will focus on a marriage gone horrifically awry, in the tale of convicted murderer Betty Broderick. The show will move from Bravo to USA Network this time around.

Amanda Peet will play Betty, while Christian Slater will play her ill-fated husband, Daniel Broderick.

"The first season of Dirty John was a story of twisted love and coercive control — and both these insidious elements are also present in and integral to the story of Betty Broderick, whom I have wanted to write about since I became a writer," series creator Alexandra Cunningham said in the press release. 

"I can’t wait to see Amanda and Christian bring it to life." Betty Broderick was the wife of Daniel, and she cared for their San Diego-based family while Daniel attends medical school and then law school

Daniel hires then 21-year-old Linda Kolkena as his legal assistant, and Betty becomes totally convinced that Daniel is having an illicit affair. Daniel denied Betty’s allegations, which later proved to be true.

Daniel and Betty's marriage ended soon after, and Daniel and Kolkena married. Betty began acting erratically while the pair underwent divorce proceedings,

According to a 2017 Los Angeles Times article on the Broderick case, Betty spray painted Daniel’s house, drove her car into Daniel’s front door, and left “obscene” messages on his answering machine.

Betty believed that she was Daniel's victim, seeing as Daniel had considerable influence in the law community. Betty was briefly admitted to a mental hospital, neglected to pay support payments and filed a restraining order.

Betty truly felt that Daniel intended to drive her insane in order to easily divorce her. The ex-wife later shot Daniel and Linda in their home on November 5, 1989,

“I bought into a 1950s Leave It to Beaver marriage…and Daniel stole my whole life,” Betty told The Los Angeles Times. “This was a desperate act of self-defense.”

Most of the public saw her as a cold-blooded killer, but others sympathised with the woman whose husband left her for a younger woman after she supported his career for years.

Betty is currently serving her prison sentence for the crimes at the California Institution for Women in Corona, but was denied parole in 2017.

Season 2 of Dirty John is currently filming, with no release date currently known.

The first series of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was a long way from the 1990s TV show that we all loved so much.

But somehow, lead actor Kiernan Shipka transformed the role into her own and we fell in love with the world of witches and warlocks once more.

So the release of the trailer for the hotly-anticipated second series has arrived and we are BUZZING. 


A post shared by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (@sabrinanetflix) on

The trailer sees Sabrina embrace all of her dark gifts as she enters her high school, pours petrol on the floor and sets it alight.

The show hints that the main character is walking down a "darker path" after having a 'dark baptism' in season one.

A love triangle is also going to be part of this season as Sabrina is torn between her first love, Harvey Kinkle, and warlock Nicholas Scratch.

C'mon Sabrina, it's gotta be Harvey, right? 


A post shared by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (@sabrinanetflix) on

The official synopsis for the Netflix show says, ''Part two finds Sabrina exploring her darker side, curious to learn more about her heritage, while struggling to maintain her friendships in the mortal world. Romantically, Sabrina is caught in an unholy love triangle with between sexy warlock Nicholas Scratch and salt-of-the-Earth mortal Harvey Kinkle.''

It continues, ''Meanwhile, the Dark Lord, Madame Satan, and Father Blackwood continue to conjure chaos in the Spellman household and the town of Greendale. And they aren't the only ones trying to raise hell. Everything is in question…relationships, identity, true intentions…when the devil's work is at hand."

We have SO MANY goosebumps.

Fans were just as excited as us, with one saying, ''This season is going to be something wicked.'' 

While another wrote, ''Forget Satan…..Praise Sabrina.'' 

Part II hits our screens on April 5 so there's not long to wait now lads. 


Channel 4's Derry Girls is easily one of the best shows on television at the moment, and we've been eagerly awaiting season two for MONTHS.

The hilarious antics of Northern Irish schoolgirl Erin and her best friends, plus an English boy as a hanger-on, had audiences in stitches laughing.

Lisa McGee, creator of the series, has been teasing season two for weeks, but Nicola Coughlan (who plays Clare) has finally given us the Channel 4 air date:

Derry Girls are BACK on Tuesday March 5 at 9:15pm, set your clocks ladies and gents. The trailer for the next season was released, much to the delight of fans, and it seems like the crew are more amusing as ever. 

Saoirse-Monica Jacskon (Erin) and Lisa McGee discussed what fans can expect in a recent interview, and the hype is BUILDING:

"It's definitely bigger and braver. It's bolder and we sort of venture out a bit more. But they're still the same characters, they're clumsily trying to find their way through their teenage years. They're selfish and mental!," said Jackson.

It's already been confirmed that Father Dougal himself, Ardal O'Hanlon, has joined the cast. This is the cherry on top of the Derry ice-cream.

Lisa McGee also said that the new season will be set "against the backdrop of the beginnings of the peace process. The gang are very much still getting in and out trouble. They're still trying to grow up – not very successfully!" 

Jackson said in another interview with the BBC that "in episode one, we meet a group of Protestant boys- which is very interesting for each of the characters."

"In episode two, we've an inspirational teacher, so, it's very special that we're all getting to see it for the very first time in Derry".

WE CAN'T WAIT. Bring on March 5, and the Protestant lads. Season two is going to be chaotic and gas craic altogether judging by these early premiere reactions.

Here's the trailer again, because we know you can't stop viewing it:

We've been addicted to You since Netflix released it back in December, and pretty much binged the ten episodes in a row without so much as a toilet break. It was unhealthy.

The show follows the narrative of bookstore manager Joe, and his infatuation with poetry writer Beck. Beginning as an online stalker, Joe gradually becomes more sinister as his obsession escalates throughout.

Starring Penn Badgley, otherwise known as Dan Humphries from Gossip Girl, and Pretty Little Liars' Shay Mitchell, the show had us seriously addicted.

News broke that the show is getting a season two, and we want DETAILS, OKAY?

Warning: Spoilers incoming

The show is based on the book by Caroline Kepnes, which means that avid readers can discover the future of You. Anyone who is already a fan of the novel will know that season two will be based in Los Angeles.

Rather than remain in New York City's urban jungle setting, Joe relocates to LA for a change.

Elizabeth Lail confirmed in a recent interview that the next season will see major alterations, including the progression away from Beck's character.

"I think they’re shooting it in LA, and so nothing will be the same. Hardly anything. It’ll be a whole other story,” she told Radio Times.about the sequel, Hidden Bodies.

Writer Sera Gamble also told Metro.co.uk, "We are prepping to shoot season two now, in Los Angeles. Which is also where the second book of the series takes place."

Not all of the book's plot will be explored, however. Gamble also said;

"We’ve got lots of great stuff from the books, and also some new things that have come about as a result of changing the story for TV, like that (spoiler alert) Candace is alive and kicking and not pleased with Joe.”

Showrunner Sarah Gamble also revealed that the audience will learn much more about Joe's past in the next season, including how he became an obsessive stalker and serial killer…

"There's a lot more to explore about Joe from earlier in his life. Those are the things we're starting to get into for season two,” she told The Hollywood Reporter

As anyone who watched season one will know, Beck and Peach probably won’t return (maybe as ghosts?) but we may get to see some flashbacks, judging by Candace's role.

As of right now, there is yet to be a set air date for season two, but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled.

A bit like Joe…but significantly more normal…

For those of you who still need to catch up on your Netflix shows, don't miss the chilling new stalker series YOU.

The show stars Penn Badgley as a bookstore manager named Joe Goldbery, who meets an unsuspecting aspiring poet, Guinevere Beck, and gets a LITTLE too attached. To say the least.

He stalks the hell out of her, basically. Think Gossip Girl's Dan Humphries but way more creepy.


A post shared by YOU (@younetflix) on

It's now been announced super on the down-low on the You Instagram account that the thriller hit is getting a second series.

Since it was released, the show has been talked about non-stop online, both for the crazy plot and the chilling acting skills of Mr Badgley.

Anyone who has seen season one probably aren't surprised at the announcement, as it ends on a major cliffhanger.

YOU is based on the book of the same name by Caroline Kepnes.


A post shared by YOU (@younetflix) on

Pretty much everyone who has watched the show are debating deleting their social media accounts, as Joe stalks Beck entirely from her Instagram and Facebook accounts. 

He finds out LITERALLY everything about her from a single click; where she lives, her place of work, aspects of her personality, her interests, her book loves, you name it.

Once he gets his hands on her phone, he can access her emails, group chats and messages. Which is basically someone's entire life, these days.


A post shared by YOU (@younetflix) on

Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars) also stars alongside Badgley and Elizabeth Lail, who plays Beck.

Listening to Joe narrate the entire show displays the weirdness and bizarre thought processes of stalkers.

Trust us, you won't be able to stop watching.

You'll also be looking over your shoulder a lot more…


‘No live organism can continue to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality’

From the opening line, Netflix’ new offering The Haunting of Hill House grips the audience, enrapturing viewers with its amalgamation of family drama and pure unadulterated horror. Based on the 1959 book by Shirley Jackson, Mike Flanagan adapts the series into a sharp and modern offering which has earned rave reviews from critics all round.

Flanagan writes, produces and directs the 10 part series which King of Horror Stephen King refers to as a ‘work of genius’ In past versions of the story, we were only given the haunting itself, but Flanagan’s spin grants us the aftermath which leaves just as much of a chill in your bones. The emotionally charged series avoids the blood and guts of the gothic-horror novel but it remains a visceral viewing nonetheless.

The narrative structure flicks between the past and the present over a 20 year timeline, each episode focuses on the existential, but nonetheless frightening journey of the Crain family trying to come to grips with the ghosts of their past.


A post shared by @nerd_realm on

It begins with five children who are tragically ripped apart and left with lifelong scars and repressed ghosts from their childhood in Hill House.They are subsequently brought together by a death, and must then realise the complicity of the house in each of their failings as adults.

In 1992, when the kids are still at the titular house, they're plagued with visions of ghosts, zombies, and supernatural beings which affect each of them in alternative ways.The intermingling of the real and possibly imagined creates an atmosphere of anxiety and fear, where the viewer cannot decide which is worse: the horrors of the mind or the darkness of reality.

Olivia and Hugh Crain (played by Carla Guigino and Timothy Hutton) move into Hill House in the hopes of ‘flipping it’- renovating it and selling it for profit. Predictably, their dream becomes a total nightmare, and the house never becomes a home. They have five children- non-identical twins Nell and Luke, Steven, Shirley and Theodora.

Within a month Hugh takes the kids and flees, leaving Olivia behind whose sanity has crumbled within the walls of the home. The children grow up, and Hugh still refuses to tell them how their mother died that fateful night.

Source: Instagram/@_haunting

Each of the children has ghosts which plague them even as time moves on. For example, Luke’s dependence on drugs leads to bitterness among his siblings, and Steven’s horror novel about the house causes anger, as the family believe he is capitalising on their grief. The children act as the narrative backbone, and there are strong performances from each cast member regardless of age.

Mike Flanagan uses genius plot devices to maintain the massive tension for an entire ten episodes, and touches heavily on the notion of trauma informing a person’s future as well as the fundamental notion that there are infinite types of ghosts in every form imaginable. Attention to detail is phenomenal, from the cinematography to the character arcs, there’s even a cameo from Shirley Jackson in the form of her infamous novel The Lottery, which Theo is seen reading in episode one. 

Flanagan uses oft-seen horror tropes and concepts such as dark corridors, old rickety mansion, locked doors (the red door will steal the breath out of your lungs), monsters under the bed among others. There are nods to Stephen King throughout, from the use of twins (The Shining) to the use of locked doors and keys. 


A post shared by The Haunting Of Hill House (@thehauntingofhillhousenetflix) on


The designs of the figures that appear are absolutely terrifying, I won’t give anything away but there’s a woman with stringy black hair, a muffled scratchy voice and a crooked neck that will haunt my imagination for life. Flanagan investigates the idea of fault, such as the tragic neglect of Nell in her all-consuming pain of the haunting, in alternating ways, as well as the concept of childhood leaving a stain on your adulthood. 

It begs the question, what does one owe to others who shared the same experiences, and what is the true limit of family. The series is intensely psychological, and explores the Freudian notion of the psyche in the form of a house.

Olivia, when designing their ‘forever home’, refers to a house as a body which “works together to keep you healthy.” This insinuates that the children’s trauma from their childhood home has seeped into every part of their present beings- mentally and physically.

Source: Instagram/@_haunting

Family loyalty is called into question, and foreshadowing is beautifully woven into the series through skilled storytelling. As the children flee the house, Steven’s father tells him to “keep your eyes closed, no matter what.” Steven later brings this into his adulthood, becoming a sceptic and never believing in the paranormal occurrences of his siblings and parents, instead blaming their unstable mental health.

Doubt and the importance of believing in the words of children prove to be of imperative value throughout. Absolutely zero comfort is given throughout, Flanagan never answers the question on whether the apparitions are real or imagined.

Contributing prodigious cinematography matched with exceptional writing, The Haunting of Hill House parallels family drama with an impressive horror story, and successfully morphs a classic into the modern world.

The show has already made a massive impact- on both the genre itself and those who have seen it. Talks are already in place for a possible season two.

High quality, psychologically charged horror has been steadily growing: Get Out is a landmark much needed change in horror, for example, as is the brilliantly original tour de force that is A Quiet Place.

Hill House is perfect for Halloween, but just don’t watch it alone in your house or you may have to move out.



Channel 4's Derry Girls earned itself quite the following when it hit out screens earlier this year. 

Set in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, its laugh-out-loud one-liners and nostalgia drenched soundtrack proved a big hit on both sides of the Irish sea, and now the second season is due back on our screens in the new year. 

Saoirse-Monica Jackson, who plays Erin Quinn, has treated fans of the show to a sneak peek of the new season. 


A post shared by Saoirse-Monica Jackson (@saoirsemonicajackson) on

The actress uploaded an Instagram picture as Erin, decked out in her fictional school uniform. 

In June, Saoirse and her co-star Jamie-Lee O'Donnell, who plays Michelle, told Ray D'Arcy that filming would commence on season 2 in October. 

So it seems like things are right on schedule.


A post shared by Derry Girls (@derrygirlsofficial) on

At the time, Jamie-Lee asked Saoirse: 'It's gonna be on Netflix, isn't it?'

However, there has been no confirmation that either series of the show will appear on the streaming service. 

'Obviously, we'd love to get that trajectory of Netflix and all the rest of it,'Saoirse responded.

'It would be great for people to be able to watch it all in the one go because it is one of those things that happened so fast. It would be great to watch it consecutively but we'll have to wait and see.'

If you haven't yet seen the stellar show – it's available on Channel 4 Player. 



Netflix has confirmed the air date for the second season of 13 Reasons Why.  Season two will hit the streaming service launch on Netflix, Friday 18 May 2018.

Season two picks up in the aftermath of Hannah's death and the start of the characters' complicated journeys towards healing and recovery.

Liberty High prepares to go on trial, but someone will stop at nothing to keep the truth surrounding Hannah's death concealed. A series of ominous polaroids lead Clay and his classmates to uncover a sickening secret and a conspiracy to cover it up.

The show has been labelled controversial after many being claimed it glamorizes mental health, however others have praised the show, saying how it has helped them talk about their own struggles.

In response to the criticism, new resources will be added to 13ReasonsWhy.info, a website created by Netfilx to discuss the distressing themes portrayed in the show. 

In a series of videos, the cast will talk about issues such as bullying, sexual assault and drug abuse. 

"It's a very exciting season for a lot of reasons," Kate Walsh, who stars as Hannah's mom Olivia, recently told E! News.

"You see us sort of following the trail of Bryce Walker, so this season deals with sexual assault, it deals with truth, it deals with responsibility, it deals with the aftermath of Hannah's death…And really trying to, again, look for responsibility and accountability. It's very intense and very, I think, still totally addictive."

We cannot wait for the new season of 13 Reasons Why.


If you're anything like us, you were more than obsessed with Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale in 2017. 

Luckily, season 2 is on the way this coming April, and the trailer has arrived.

As well as giving us an inkling of what to expect from the coming season, the snippet of the show gave us literal shivers thanks to the dramatic scenes and eerie soundtrack. 

The trailer revealed a number of things, following on from the handmaid's final rebellion at the end of season 1.

June, or Offred as she is know in Gilead, can be seen striking a match to her handmaid's uniform. 

According to the trailer, Janine avoided being stoned to death, as she can be seen gazing in to the distance in a stark landscape, widely believed to be a work camp. 

It's clear that the new season will take place in multiple locations outside the walls of the Commander's home, with wastelands, dark tunnels and Moira's new life in Canada all featuring in the ad. 

Well, we won't keep you in suspense, check it out for yourself:



If you were as captivated by Big Little Lies as we were, then you've obviously been holding out hope for the launch of a second season, right?

And if emerging reports are anything to go by, it looks like we may be set for an instalment of new stories from the breathtaking town of Monterey on America's west coast.

Speaking at the 2017 Summer TCA Press Tour, HBO's programming president, Casey Bloys, alluded to the fact the author of the original book, Liane Moriarty, is currently working on potential storylines.

According to ET Online, Casey said he's excited by the possibilities which lie ahead, saying: "Liane taking her crack at it and I think that it's interesting."

While acknowledging the slightly atypical approach they have to this particular TV show, Casey said he's invigorated by the change in direction.

"I don't think there's been a time when we've gone to the writer of the novel, the source material, to come up with like, ‘Do you see ongoing stories?'"he continued.

"I'll be very curious to see what she comes up with that. Normally you go to a TV writer, and say, ‘What do you see?'"

"We have to see the material and if it's worth everybody's time," Casey continued. "If it is, then the conversation of directors will happen."

It sounds more and more likely with every passing conversation.


Just like Stranger Things and 13 Reasons Why, Big Little Lies was a TV show to remember.

It touched on serious issues such as bullying, domestic abuse and adultery.

But as sobering as the issues in the TV series were, it was totally captivating and well worth a watch.

That's why we're pretty excited that Reese Witherspoon has basically confirmed a second season.

In a not-so-cryptic Instagram post featuring her co-stars Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern, Reese wrote that they were "working on some new lies."

"Spending #SundayFunday with these ladies … working on some new lies," she captioned the glam picture.

With a star-studded first season, we can't wait until season two is released.
