Some months back, we learned legendary author Anne Rice had in mind to shepherd a Vampire Chronicles TV series of “the highest quality,” and it looks like Paramount is ready to sink their teeth in.

It’s tough to say whether The Walking Dead is set in its ways, or might surprise us in Season 8’s “All Out War.” Either way, at least one notable tweak is in order, as showrunner Scott Gimple says Season 8 will address a long-running fan complaint over the series’ pacing.
The Walking Dead’s Season 7 finale definitely moved Rick’s list of allies up and down a few notches, so he could use some help when “All Out War” arrives in Season 8. Thankfully, a new casting report hints at two more major characters joining the battle against Negan, potentially even as series regulars.
“Wait, but what happened to Dr. Elizabeth Shaw?” That’s been one of our biggest questions in the months leading up to the release of Alien: Covenant, which introduces us to a new crew and inches ever closer to the events in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic.

Sadly, MTV Scream fans are going to have to wait a lot longer (like, forever) to finally answer the Brandon James mystery. Season 3 has confirmed plans to reboot the premise with new showrunners, even adding Queen Latifah as a new producer.

Folks, especially horror fans, you’re going to want to keep It Comes At Night on your radar. An outbreak movie with a twist, Trey Edward Shults’ new movie focuses on a family trying to survive a deadly plague who have to make a terrible choice: deny a man shelter or give it to him, at the risk of exposure to one killer illness.
New Line’s next spinoff from The Conjuring franchise is keeping things in the family — at least on the real-world side of things. Taissa Farmiga, sister of Conjuring star Vera Farmiga, is set to star in The Nun, based on the terrifying ghoul featured in James Wan’s sequel to his blockbuster horror hit. Little is known about the upcoming spinoff, though it seems unlikely that Farmiga’s role will be related to her sister’s fictional take on famous paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren.
American Horror Story Season 7 isn’t quite under the same veil of secrecy as its predecessor, but has nonetheless sown confusion over its use of 2016 Election figures. First we wouldn’t see Trump and Clinton; then we would, and now Ryan Murphy finally clears up how.
