chucky tv series update

Child’s Play is a very fluid franchise, and that might be the key to its longevity. While other horror franchises have died off, Child’s Play is still going strong, even in the wake of an unnecessary remake. Don Mancini, who has been behind the series since the beginning, is now bringing the story of the killer Good Guy doll to TV with the Chucky TV series. The series remains shrouded in secrecy, but in a new interview, Mancini promises that the show will combine the more straightforward horror elements of the first film while also honoring the ever-changing tone of the sequels.

The Magicians Fillory and Further Review

The news a month or so ago that this season of The Magicians would be the last has magically made “Fillory and Further” not only the season finale, but the series finale as well. It’s hard to say goodbye to this world and the effed up magicians who inhabit it. But all good things must come to an end, and so last night we said farewell to Brakebills, to Fillory (especially Fillory), and to the magical world on Earth existing just beyond our mere muggle purview. For the last time, let’s sort through what happened this episode, and what it means for the characters we’ve come to love.

The Magicians The Balls Review

If you ever wanted to watch a musical version of an Oceans movies set in a hotel not unlike The Continental from John Wick: Chapter 2, then look no further than this episode of The Magicians. We start “The Balls” in the gang’s New York City apartment, where Marina walks everyone else through the intricate plan they must enact in order to steal the World Seed from The Couple’s stronghold in the Nave Hotel.

The Magicians Purgatory Review

These last few episodes of this season’s The Magicians have taken on a bittersweet tinge after the news that Syfy hasn’t picked up the show for a sixth season. After last night’s episode, ironically called “Purgatory,” there are only two episodes left before what we now know will be the series finale on April 1. On the bright side, we can savor what we have left (including a musical episode that co-creator Sera Gamble has called the craziest one yet), and be thankful that the show’s five seasons will always be there, ready for us to re-watch whenever we want to reminisce with the characters we love.

the magicians canceled

The Magicians has cast its last spell. The beloved fantasy series has been canceled by Syfy after five seasons, with the show’s season 5 finale, set to air on April 1, now set to serve as the series finale. But it was a cancellation that creators Sera Gamble and John McNamara foresaw (no, not through some prophetic ability), which allowed them to craft the season 5 finale into a proper series finale.

day of the dead tv series

George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead is finding new life – as a TV series. Syfy just gave a 10-episode straight-to-series order to a Day of the Dead TV show based on Romero’s film of the same name. While it shares the same title as Romero’s classic, the storyline is a bit different, focusing on six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of an undead outbreak.

The Magicians Acting Dean Review

Just six episodes into the fifth season of The Magicians, and the gang has already saved the world. I suppose that’s a good thing—but what strife or calamity will keep things interesting for the back half of the season? 

Turns out, there are plenty of other things that are effed up enough to keep things interesting. For starters, magic is still messed up on Earth—the gang moved the moon to stop Armageddon, but in doing so screwed up spellcasting. Now, every time a magician tries to do magic, their spell goes wonky. Throw in the random magical surge or two, and magicians on Earth will now be risking their lives if they do magic. Don’t worry though—Alice is on the case. She’s researching a fix at Brakebills, where Penny23 has been made interim dean during Fogg’s absence.

The Magicians Do Something Crazy Review

This post contains spoilers for the season 5 premiere (naturally), but also the season 4 finale.

Last season’s finale of The Magicians was a doozy for fans; Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph), one of the main characters of the show, dramatically sacrifices himself in order to save his friends and bring magic back into the world. Death, especially in fantasy, can be an impermanent state of being. But showrunners Sera Gamble and John McNamara made it clear at the end of Season 4 that Quentin would very likely remain dead and gone.

Unsurprisingly, the impact of Quentin’s death is a major force in Season 5, and not only to those who loved Quentin and are grieving his loss; Quentin’s death also released an unprecedented influx of magic into the universe, and Earth as well as Fillory must now deal with the consequences. The last few minutes of the Season 4 finale touched on some of those potential consequences: Margo and Eliot are trapped in Fillory 300 years in the future; Julia gets her magic back because of her pain from Quentin’s death; and the now-broken Library is seeking help from a grief-stricken Alice. The beginning of this season builds on these developments and more—read on to get a spoiler-full take of what happens in Season 5’s first episode, “Do Something Crazy.”
