season two

Big Little Lies season one had us absolutely GRIPPED with the underlying tension and complex relationships, not to mention the stellar acting from stars like Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, Laura Dern and Nicole Kidman.

We can't get enough of the Monterey mums and their crazy tale, and jumped for joy when HBO commissioned a season two with seven new episodes. Oh, and MERYL STREEP. *Weeps*

The sophomore series is due to premiere on June 9, 2019 and the first-look images are ridiculously intense. It looks like plenty of confrontations will take place, and epiphany moments.

The teaser shows plenty of screaming, which proves weirdly entertaining. Meryl is seen throwing some world class shade at the end, playing the role of Perry's mother. If you've forgotten, Perry is six feet under after his abuse escalated and he was pushed down the steps by Bonnie.

We just KNOW that Meryl is going to bring something special to the show. Perry's mum arrives in town with plenty of questions about her son's death.

Nicole Kidman shared the first picture of Mary Louise Wright (Meryl's character) last August, alongside Celeste's "darling boys." What are they looking at, we wonder? Perry's mum and Madeleine also appear to have a showdown.

Reese and Meryl were seen filming a scene involving an ice cream cone being thrown in Los Angeles; basically Madeleine hurls the cone at Mary Louise. They both appear to be fiery characters, and it's unsurprising that they clash.

The show finally has it's own Instagram account, so we're guessing that it'll be riddled with BLL hints about the new season fairly soon. Currently, it's just a grid of videos and gallery posts about the cast.

A new director is also attached to the project: Andrea Arnold. Every episode of season one was directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, but he was quoted saying, "If we do a season 2, we’ll break a beautiful thing and spoil it."

He decided not to do season two, basically. Arnold previously worked on episodes of Transparent and the Oscar-winning short film Wasp.

News also broke that This Is Us and American Horror Story actor Denis O'Hare is set to become a regular cast member for season two. His role is yet to be described though, we're waiting.

It also looks like all the OG members of the Monterey Mom patrol are returning. Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman will also return as executive producers (girl power) and Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz are reprising their cast roles.

Rumour has it, Alexander Skarsgård could be back? The actor won a Golden Globe, an Emmy and a SAG Award for his incredible portrayal of Celeste's abusive husband, Perry. Though he's definitely dead (thank you, stairs)…he could appear in flashbacks.

Celeste's husband could still appear in her nightmares. Executive producer Bruna Papandrea recently responded “not that I know of” when asked if Alexander will return.

Alexander has also teased, “I don’t even know if I’m really dead or not. I feel okay right now, but we’ll see.” He's keeping the option open, it would seem.

Liane Moriarty is the author of the book, Big Little Lies. She also wrote the story for season two, despite never publishing a sequel to the book. The season one showrunner and writer David E. Kelley is also returning.

Word on the street is that Bonnie's parents show up to stir trouble. In April 2018, the Hollywood Reporter broke everyone's hearts by claiming Zoë’s real-life VIP parents Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet will not play Bonnie’s parents on BLL. 

Crystal Fox plays Elizabeth Howard, and Martin Donovan (Weeds) will portray Bonnie's father, Martin. Bonnie will struggle to process what she did to Perry, and it has an important emotional link to her past. Deadline reports that Perry's death drags up unsavoury memories from her childhood.

Renata is also due to have a few alterations to her marriage, according to Deadline.

Good news: a hot, "offbeat" surfer hits up Monterey. Give a warm round of applause to actor Douglas Smith, who will play Corey Brockfield. The character is an “aspiring marine biologist” and Jane’s (Shailene) co-worker. Romance alert?

The Canadian actor has worked on The AlienistCSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and Big Love. All we know about him is that he looks damn good on the beach.

The cast are getting some TASTY pay raises (#TimesUp). ABC News reported in April 2018 that the cast will get increases for the season season.

Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming told THR in a different interview that this was a “direct result” of the Time’s Up movement, so clap clap to Reese for that; 

“One of the things that’s come out of thinking about the movement and some conversations with Reese, who’s really at the forefront, is something we’ve done recently. We’ve proactively gone through all of our shows- in fact, we just finished our process where we went through and made sure that there were no inappropriate disparities in pay, and where there were, if we found any, we corrected it going forward.”

THR claimed in January of last year that Nicole and Reese, who produce the show, will earn $1 million per episode on season two, compared to $250,000 to $350,000 per episode on season one.Did someone say, "glow up"?

Their children's school will get a brand new teacher at Otter Bay Elementary. Mo McRae, of Pitch fame, will play Michael Perkins; a second grade teacher who causes Renata's daughter to have panic attacks about the environment. 

HBO confirmed that P. J. Byrne will reprise his role as the school’s principal last May, and Poora Jagannathan (GypsyThe Night Of) will play a new character named Katie Richmond. We're assuming she's a mum, but nothing's been set in stone.

Meryl has been having a WHALE of a time on set with the ladies, even going group bowling with the cast. Nicole Kidman is set to create more projects with Liane Moriarty, specifically her upcoming book Nine Perfect Strangers.

Nicole has bought the film and tv rights, so we're in for a treat. We have no word on whether or not there'll be a Big Little Lies season three. BLL creator and executive producer Kelley has said,

“It’s one and two, and we like our closure with season two, but that will probably be it.” Nicole seemed to disagree, saying, “There’s no plan for it to end, specifically. This was a long shoot for us, and it was an enormous amount of work, and we’re just amazed that we can be here.” Hmmm

Production wrapped in August of 2018, and we're predicting big things…especially after seeing Perry's mother/Meryl say: 

“I want to know what happened that night” while the camera pans to the ladies in a lineup at the police station.

The excitement is officially building: only 40 days left to wait.

It's only been a few weeks since Netflix released The Umbrella Academy, but already the show has garnered a fanbase of millions.

My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way's brainchild involves a group of children with special powers who must save the world from the apocalypse when they grow up, after their billionaire father dies.

Sir Reginald Hargreeves raised the kids, but they separated as time passed and they desired their freedom. His mysterious death reunites the strange family, and the plot thickens. 

43 babies were born where the women hadn't been pregnant when the day had begun, and an eccentric elderly billionaire buys seven of them. Of course, they've got the coolest POWERZ ever…

The acting is top notch, Gerard Way's comic book is brought to life with an emotional roller-coaster and some excellent stars such as Mary J. Blige and Ellen Page stealing scenes.

Fans are asking the right questions about the possibility of a season two;

We've officially fallen in love with the entire cast of quirky characters, but Klaus stole our hearts. Ireland's own Robert Sheehan plays the character, who can converse with the dead but numbs himself with alcohol and drugs to cope.

Another absolute LEGEND in the show is number five, played by Aidan Gallagher. The 15-year-old stunned audiences with his acting and maturity, playing a character who jumps through time and space.

Unfortunately, Gallagher shut down rumours about season two today, and we're more than upset.

He tweeted;

"While I have no doubts because I've been to the future (it sucks by the way)- no word from Netflix on a second season has been given to anyone yet. When it comes they will make it loud and headline clear to all."

However, GWW reported that the second season of The Umbrella Academy will be going into production at the end of 2019 in Toronto, so we're confused.

The publication are stating that Peter Hoar has signed on to direct the first episode. Hoar directed the pilot as well as episode 10 of the first season. We trust Aidan more than GWW, the kid has been to the future.

Aidan is the UN's youngest ever ambassador, and he campaigns for environmental and climate change action in politics as well as recording music, acting and going to school. He's literally the coolest 15-year-old ever.

Let's just rewatch the first season again and again while we wait for the announcement:

Meanwhile, here is an image of us staring into the abyss until we get confirmation of season two:

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:

Otis Milburn has an announcement, and you DEFINITELY want to hear it.

The critically-acclaimed and fan favourite Netflix series Sex Education has won the heart of every single viewer, for it's hilarious script, lovable (complex) characters and important themes.

The iconic show touches on everything from sex, consent, homosexuality, prejudice, mental health, gender identity, abortion rights and racism. Somehow, they also made it funny, with beautiful acting. HOW?

That's right lads, Sex Education is coming BACK for a second season, after leaving us on a major cliffhanger at the end of season one.

The students at Moordale High School garnered a massive social media following (those quotable memes?), and it's estimated that over 40 million households watched the title within one month.

The fan demand for season two was predictably high, and Netflix has confirmed that the series has been renewed for another eight episodes of the heartfelt, funny and honest show. We STAN.

Season two is slated to start production this spring in England, with Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds, Patricia Allison and Alistair Petrie all reprising their unreal roles.

Fans are pretty darn excited, as we guessed. Twitter has had a slight meltdown as the thought of more open conversations about sex, which is SO needed in today's society.

Creator of the show Laurie Nunn will return alongside executive producer Jamie Campbell. The first season achieved popular acclaim for it's poignant treatment of relationships and identity, we're OBSESSED with Otis' sex therapist mum.

Gillian Anderson is a certified boss.

We love the intersectional appeal of the show. I mean, a jock reading Virginia Woolf, and liking it? That's some revolutionary sh*t right there.

Multidimensional characters in a teen show can be hard to come by, but this cast has delivered it with heart.

Series creator Laurie Nunn said,

“The reception to series one has been so exciting. Seeing how people across the world have connected to characters that began as ideas in my head is incredible. I’m hugely grateful to every person that has taken the time to watch the series, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey.”

Thank you, Laurie, for giving us Emma Mackey's character: the badass Maeve Wiley. We need her so badly in our lives.

We can't wait to see what's in store for season two.

SPOILER ALERT:

At the end of season one, Otis was smooching his new gal Ola, much to Maeve's heartbreak. Will Maeve return to school? And what about Adam and Eric's burgeoning romance? We can't deal.

Bring on 2019, God exists and she has delivered us this gift.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been one of the most successful Netflix shows of 2018, and for good reason.

The show is a darker take on one of our old 1990s faves, Sabrina the Teenage Witch; a coming of age story about a seemingly normal adolescent girl with a horror-themed secret.

Netflix' take on the series has expanded the layers of witchcraft, introducing the occult, bloodlust and evil forces inherent in the human world. Sounds like our kind of vibe, doesn't it?

Kiernan Shipka totally cast her spell on the audience as Sabrina Spellman, and our new internet boyfriend Chance Perdomo had quite an effect as her cousin, Ambrose.

When we left Sabrina at the end of part one, she was forced to make her decision regarding the border between the human world and the world of witchcraft, with powerful results.

We already knew that season two was in the works, as ordered the series as a two-part deal. Thank the Gods for that.

Luckily for us, we don't have to wait long for season two to hit our screens, the trailer has been released and our gal Sabrina is most-definitely dark witch material.

Sporting her new icy blonde hair and cheeky grin, she's undoubtedly up to mischief. 

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 airs on April 5th on Netflix. Get ready, witches.

Narcos was one of them TV shows that you randomly started watching while bored one day on in Netflix. And then after binge-watching and being sucked into the show, it felt like there was a giant Narcos-sized hole left behind when it ended.

We've been there, but particularly with this series that gripped you from the very beginning.

Well, Hallelujah girls, because the season two teaser trailer has just landed, and even though it doesn't tell you much about the story (like nothing, at all), it does tell you when it's coming back to a Netflix screen near you.

In the video, you'll see Pablo Escobar looking very intense while staring down into the camera. Then three important dates pop up on the screen: 1/12/49 (the day he was born), 2/12/93 (the day he died) and 2/9/2016 (the day the series is coming back).

Have a look at the teaser here:
