Stranger Things 3 Is On The Way

Despite recent controversy regarding the cancellation (and then non-cancellation) of Friends, Netflix has given the people what they want: the first teaser for the third season of Stranger Things. 

In a short clip on Sunday night, Netflix revealed the titles for the eight episodes of season 3:

  • Suzie, Do You Copy?
  • The Mall Rats
  • The Case of the Missing Lifeguard
  • The Sauna Test
  • The Source
  • The Birthday
  • The Bite
  • The Battle of Starcourt

The third season of the network’s breakout sci-fi 80s series will drop sometime next year.

CMBYN Author confirms sequel

A sequel novel to Andre Aciman’s Call Me By Your Name will be arriving sooner rather than later. The author, who wrote the original 2007 novel that became an awards contender (and my personal favorite movie of 2017), confirmed that he is working on a sequel to the bestseller. 

“I would actually love a sequel to Call Me by Your Name. In fact, I am writing one,” said Aciman. 

Both of the film’s leading stars, Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet, said they would want to participate in a sequel if this new book heads to the screen as well. 

“It will happen because there are already people working on it and trying to make it happen,” Hammer told Variety this fall. “I know a lot, but I can’t tell you anything.”
