Showtime shocked us all with the announcement that ‘Twin Peaks’ would return as a series in 2016 under creator David Lynch, though predictably few details were available just yet. Now, the most burning question about the darkly surreal drama’s return has been answered, confirming Kyle MacLachlan’s reprisal of Dale Cooper.

Of all The CW’s future offerings, we’ve been most ravenous for a taste of comic-adaptation ‘iZombie,’ as developed by Rob Thomas of ‘Veronica Mars’ fame. Now, the delicious brains at the network have finally scheduled ‘iZombie’'s spring debut, along with a brand-new trailer for the series.
After the harrowing midseason finale that was ‘The Walking Dead’'s 2014 “Coda,” Rick Grimes and his fellow survivors definitely need to blow off some steam. What better way, then, to kick off the latest trailer for the AMC drama’s 2015 return, than to slow jam firing blindly into some mist? Is there angst and muted shouting, you ask? Oh yes, friends. Oh yes.
‘Bates Motel’ hasn’t been bashful about offering a peep or two of new horror, but the fledgling ‘Psycho’ is officially off the wall for a season 3 return. A&E has taken a stab at scheduling ‘Bates Motel’ season 3's official March premiere, with a brand-new spoilery synopsis of twists and turns to come.
Just when you thought Guillermo del Toro might have had too much on his plate, from ‘Justice League Dark’ to ‘Pacific Rim’ sequels and FX’s ‘The Strain,’ the visionary director’s long-gestating ‘A Killing on Carnival Row’ may have returned to life. Amazon has begun eyeing the fantasy horror project as a new series, with del Toro in mind to direct the pilot.
We had a new ‘Purge’ film two years in a row, which was very much in keeping with the franchise’s fictional reality in which for one night, every year, citizens “purge” and murder the hell out of each other—if, you know, they’re into that. If you were hoping to see ‘The Purge 3’ hit theaters this year to deliver your annual dose of dystopian violence, sorry, but you’ll just have to wait one more year because this year’s ‘Purge’ has been delayed.
We’ve had a nice three-week break from ‘American Horror Story,’ which has given us plenty of time to maybe forget some of the show’s shortcomings and perhaps look forward to rejoining the ‘Freak Show.’ Ryan Murphy’s absurd horror series returns with an all-new episode featuring some very special guest stars, including Neil Patrick Harris and his creepy little puppet friend.
‘The Walking Dead’ left off its 2014 midseason finale “Coda” with a pretty depressing note, but the song remains the same as we head toward the February 2015 premiere in search of a new home. Cue the latest poster for ‘The Walking Dead’'s return, with a familiar message for Rick Grimes!
Just yesterday we saw the first poster and image from ‘The Lazarus Effect,’ the latest horror flick from Blumhouse Productions, the folks who brought you ‘Insidious’ and last year’s ‘Oculus.’ We were already sold on the film based on the cast alone, but seeing this first trailer really seals the deal. A film in which Mark Duplass and Donald Glover bring a creepy Olivia Wilde back from the dead? We’re totally there.
Following the debut of the first trailer for the James Wan-produced ‘Demonic,’ comes some more Wan-centric news: it was recently revealed that the director is heading back behind the camera for ‘The Conjuring 2,’ but first the script for the upcoming sequel will receive a rewrite. New Line and Wan have just brought on ‘Wrath of the Titans’ scribe David Leslie Johnson to help polish the spooky screenplay.
