Fans absolutely lost their damn minds while watching Netflix' horror-drama The Haunting of Hill House, so it's no surprise that it was renewed for season two.

The first season was based on the 1959 Shirley Jackson novel, but the next series will feature an all-new cast and story.

Titled The Haunting of Bly Manor, creator Mike Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy will base the next chapter on Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw, a classic horror novella centring on a governess and two sibling children.

The first season of the show boasted a massively talented cast of Henry Thomas, Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, Elizabeth Reaser, Kate Siegel and Oliver Jackson-Cohen, as well as an emotionally-charged story.

Set in a dilapidated mansion saturated with ghosts, the supernatural soon takes hold of the young family who live there and haunts them into adulthood, showing flashbacks and terrifying scenes.

The show achieve its whopping 92% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the audience gripped entirely by the family drama paired with horror, a relatively new idea.

Stephen King, the most famous horror author on the planet, even sang the work's praise on Twitter;

The Haunting of Hill House, revised and remodelled by Mike Flanagan… I don’t usually care for this kind of revisionism, but this is great. Close to a work of genius, really."

“I think Shirley Jackson would approve, but who knows for sure," he wrote, giving the compliment of a lifetime to Mike Flanagan.

Vice president of original content at Netflix, Cindy Holland, commented on season two's announcement:

“Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy are masterful at creating authentically frightening stories that leave audiences on the edge of their seats, but unable to look away.”

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with them on The Haunting series and future projects to come.”

Netflix has embarked on a multi-year deal with Flanagan and Macy,Variety reports, which will see both men produce new TV projects for the streaming giant exclusively .

The series followed five siblings who grew up in the most famous haunted house in America, and we honestly could NOT stop screaming as they tried to escape their past and literal/figurative ghosts.

No release date for The Haunting of Bly Manor has been announced yet, but we already know we won't be able to sleep at night…

It's expected to land in our Netflix accounts sometime in 2020. The whispering voice in the teaser mentions the garden beyond… and the “great emptiness”. We're sh*tting ourselves.

Former Father Ted star and all-round comedic legend Ardal O'Hanlon is set to join Derry Girls season two.

As a key character in one of Ireland's most hilarious TV shows, Father Dougal McGuire, we're over the moon to see him join the latest brilliant Irish comedy series.

Derry Girls was first released on Channel 4 back in January of 2018 and quickly became one of the most watched show in Northern Ireland's history.

The show, which is based in Northern Ireland and follows a group of school friends who get up to mischief during The Troubles, with hilarious results.

It snagged Best Comedy at the IFTA Gala Television Awards and Lisa McGee took home the gong for Best Writer for Comedy/Soap after creating the absolute gem.

Soon after the show ended, it was publicised that a second series of the show had been commissioned, and today the news broke that Ardal O'Hanlon will be joining the cast.

A release from Channel 4 claims that the Monaghan native will play the role of; “Eamonn, the awkward, middle-aged mummy’s boy of the Quinn/McCool extended family”.

Saoirse-Monica Jackson, who plays Erin Quinn spoke about the actor in an interview with RadioTimes“Ardal O’Hanlon joins our family this year, which is brilliant.” ​​

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Claire, says that the character of Eamonn is “a real Irish stereotype” – but he’s “not a priest”. “I think it’s something that everybody will recognise, and he completely gets it so on the money,” she added.

“It was really surreal, just looking at him, because he’s such an iconic figure in Ireland, and he’s such a lovely man. He’s so good in it," Coughlan continued.

“There’s a scene where it gets quite physical, and Lisa McGee came over. She was like, "Don’t bully Ardal". And we were like, "We’re not bullying him, he’s like a national treasure!" ‘Cause we had to like go for it in the scene.”

Thank the Derry Gods, the show returns to our screens next month, and we finally got a sneak peak when Channel 4 released the trailer for season two a few days ago. It's gonna be pure gas, we cannot WAIT.

A few months ago, Will Smith appeared on the cover of Entertainment Weekly alongside the stars of Disney's live-action remake of Aladdin, and people had something to SAY.

Basically, he wasn't blue, and this deeply offended the general public. Like, DEEPLY offended. Scuba diving in the Pacific deep.

He took to Instagram to defend himself, writing; "I’m gonna be BLUE! This is how the Genie is in human or disguise form. My character will be CGI most of the movie."

However, during the Grammy's ad-break last night, a new trailer for the movie was released and once again, fans ain't happy.

Disney managed to sneak in a minute-long trailer featuring Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Mena Massoud in the protagonist role. Will Smith's turn as the Genie has EVERYONE talking.

The 50-year-old actor is under a lot of pressure, taking over the reboot role from Robin Williams' iconic performance.

Sharing his own reaction to the trailer release, Will wrote on Instagram: "I told y’all I was gon’ be Blue!! Y’all need to trust me more often!" 

When he accepted the role, the actor said: "Whenever you’re doing things that are iconic, it’s always terrifying. The question is always: Where was there meat left on the bone? Robin didn’t leave a lot of meat on the bone with the character."

The 1992 animation starred Robin Williams, and became especially iconic for his role in the voice acting and music.

The memes have already begun flowing in, and we are entertained to say the least.

Even Judge Judy was dragged into the hilarity:

The reactions are pure gas:

Paul Giamatti from the iconic Frankie Munez flick Big Fat Liar was even used:

Viewers weren't READY:

The poor man is getting dragged, by his own Shark Tale character:

We feel a bit sorry for him…

Do you think he deserves all this slagging? We don't think so, but by GOD are we enjoying the memes. Keep 'em coming, people.

Aladdin is set for release on 24 May, so we'll see what the reaction is to the full flick in due course.

The anticipation is building for the final instalment of Game of Thrones.

When they first announced that the last season would be out in 2019, it felt like it would be FOREVER before we saw our fave characters return – but with the New Year around the corner, the excitement is real. 

As the April date approaches, we are being teased with trailers of season eight and we actually can't cope.

The creators have released an ice and fire meeting as winter has arrived.

The battle of century is about to go down and if this clip is anything to go by, viewers are in for a stunning cinematic experience.

Ice is seen engulfing a wolf and scaling a statue of a dragon as fire licks around a lion.

As the two elements meet a rocky boarder is formed, which we imagine is a hint of what is to come in the series. 

Roll on the fan theories because we are LIVING for them.

Jon Snow we are waiting for you.

Netflix has revamped Sabrina from the Archie Comics, and the 90s sitcom, but gave it one dark makeover.

Say your farewells to Melissa Joan Hart's version of the character as Kiernan Shipka takes centre stage as Spellman for this horror-filled, witchcraft series.

If you're a Sabrina fan, you're in luck – Netflix is running at least two seasons of the new show, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. 

And if the trailer has you wondering if this series has similar feels to Riverdale, you're not wrong.

The brain behind the high-school drama has been drawn-in for the revamp.

The new House of Cards trailer is here, and we are woke.

Kevin Spacey has been under fire for allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour. Last year, Anthony Rapp bravely came forward and accused the Oscar-winning actor of making sexual advances towards him when he was just 14-years-old.

As a result of the revealed incident, Netflix reportedly said they were planning on dropping Kevin from the following season of House of Cards.

And now, the political drama’s recent trailer has officially killed off his character of Frank Underwood, verifying the series’ previous statement.

The chilling, short clip opens with Blaire Underwood in all-black at a graveyard.

“I’ll tell you this though, Francis. When they bury me it won’t be in my backyard.

“And when they pay their respects, they’ll have to wait in line,” the powerful woman says, looking straight into the camera lens.

The camera then pans out to reveal her husband’s grave beside that of his father’s.

Captioned “You should have known”, the haunting video officially puts an end to Kevin's starring role.

We cannot wait to see Claire take over the Oval Office. Her strong portrayal of the female lead is empowering as she shows that she doesn’t need a male co-star to slay it on set.

The show’s final season will debut on November 2nd, and we can’t wait to see it!

It's that time of year again…the Great British Bake Off will soon be back on our screens!

So, feast your eyes on the delightfully quirky trailer below that Channel 4 have treated us to.

It's definitely carrying on the trend from the 2017 trailer, where an assortment of pastries belted out Paul McCartney and the Frog Chorus’s We All Stand Together.

This time around, the clip features a mix of sad-looking baked goods singing their hearts out to Christina Aguilera's Beautiful.

There is a chocolate hedgehog cake that pleads “Don’t look at me” and a burnt bake is chucked in the bin.

We're LOVING it. 

“Bake Off’s back” is the message that the trailers opens with and this time, unlike like year, the GBBO hosts and judges have put in an appearance. 

Yes – we get to see the wonderfully wacky Sandi Toksvig, Noel Fielding, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood again. 

According to Radio Times, Channel 4 paid a reportedly staggering £75 million for three years of the show, which nabbed a cool 15 million viewers on the BBC.

Last year’s Bake Off final attracted one of the largest audiences in Channel 4’s 35-year history.

Impressive, wha?

Obviously, social media went into meltdown once the teaser was posted.

Comments ranged from impressed – ''I like the advert – quirky, calorie stuffed nonsense with a nostalgic tune. Very bonkersly British.'' to supportive – '12 nervous bakers awaiting to be announced to the world Good luck to them all. Looking forward to the next series'' to simply plain excited – ''Oh my goodness. This has made my night!''

GBBO has become a telly institution since it launched in 2010 and it has well and truly won a place in the hearts of all it's viewers.

Us included.

One person summed it all up in one tweet: ''that made me emotional I can’t believe it’s been a year already how time flies but I can’t wait for the next series.''

Roll on the end of August and Series Nine!

We have been dying to see what happens to the Stranger Things crew next!
But unfortunately, the new release date of Stranger Things has officially ruined our day.

It was an emotional final episode as we lost a beloved character, saw rekindled romances, and watched people dance the night away at Snowball.

Spoiler alert!

We were left on the edge of our seats as the camera flipped to show the school still in 'the upside down', and the monster looming over it all.

To our dismay, Netflix has confirmed that the season three will not be released until Summer 2019.

Yes, we have to wait an entire year! Why is it taking so long?

When asked during the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday, Netflix’s VP of Original Content, Cindy Holland, said they are taking their time with the ‘hand-crafted show’.

‘You know, the [creators] the Duffer Brothers and [director] Shawn Levy have worked really hard and they understand the stakes are high.

‘They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year.[…] it’s gonna be worth the wait.’

A recent trailer for the series modelled an advert for the Starcourt Mall, informing viewers of its opening next summer.

So, while we were warned of the possible release date, many of us fans were hoping for a fall debut.

Expectations continue to rise as the Duffer Brothers take their time creating the follow up season.

So, we will just have to wait a bit longer to see Eleven kick some alien a**!

Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has already started her 2019 Oscar campaign, judging by the release of her anticipated new film.

The talented star dons an impressive wig, impeccable accent and prepares to clash with fellow Oscar alum Margo Robbie (a surprising cast choice for the role of Queen Elizabeth I) as she heads to battle as Mary, Queen of Scots.

The anticipated film was written by House of Cards' Beau Williamson and based on the biography by John Guy, it revolves around the rebellious and charismatic Mary who chose to fight for her native thrown instead of being Queen of France at just 16.

Widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I and for a time, each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination.

But when Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty, betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change history. 

Watch the trailer below:

Historical liberties were taken with this one, but this is going to be some showdown, helmed by two incredible actresses at the top of their game.  

We can't wait.

Mary, Queen of Scots will be released on January 18th, 2019

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:
