This week, Netflix gave us the news we've been desperately hoping for: The Haunting of Hill House will return for a second season sometime in 2019. It really should come as no surprise. After all, the show quickly took off when it premiered back in October 2018, because it stirred gripping fear into a cauldron with intense emotion. The question wasn't a matter of if the second season would happen. It was a question of what it would entail.

The plot thickens. If you read up on the cast and crew quotes about the second season, then you no doubt knew the Crain family would not be back in the show's second installment. "As far as I've ever been concerned with this, the story of the Crain family is told. It's done," creator Mike Flanagan told Entertainment Weekly. "I felt like the Crains have been through enough, and we

Taraji P. Henson Isn't Taking a Penny Less Than She Deserves:
The gender pay gap is excruciatingly unfair to women of color, and it's an unfortunate hurdle that affects even those at the top of their professions, including women in Hollywood. Taraji P. Henson - who has been in the game for over two decades - knows the struggle well and opened up about her experiences with pay negotiations in Net-a-Porter's digital magazine, The Edit. The Empire star's quotes about salary negotiations and no longer accepting less than her worth have vision-board potential. Seriously, they're that real.

"'Honey, a zero is missing. Tell them to go find it then call me back.'"

Of the pay discrepancy she faced while working on 2008's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - Taraji was paid just $500,000 for her role, while costars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett reportedly made tens of millions - Taraji talked about having to "bite that bullet" and use it

Adam Scott, Sanaa Lathan, and More Star in the Spooky Trailer For The Twilight Zone

  • Popsugar
When CBS announced the brand-new reboot of The Twilight Zone quite some time ago, the network had already attached Jordan Peele as an executive producer. But thanks to the ad that dropped during the Super Bowl in February, we've been able to catch a glimpse of the horror auteur in his other role for the series: as the even-keeled host of the show itself, just like the original's Rod Serling. Now there's Another trailer in the mix, which is appropriately creepy, setting up the strange multiverse we've come to expect from the mysterious show. We'll just have to wait to get some answers about the mysterious reboot until it drops on April 1. In the meantime, you can check out the star-packed cast and scour the trailer for Easter eggs.

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Big Little Lies season one.

The upcoming second season of Big Little Lies is promising some pretty juicy drama, and according to Zoë Kravitz, the sh*t is about to hit the fan.
