Based on the best-selling book series by author Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil tells the tale of two friends, Agatha and Sophie, who get shipped off to a peculiar learning establishment solely focused on training kids to be either heroes or villains, with the overall goal of maintaining the balance of good and evil within the universe. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters) directs and the loaded cast finds Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Cate Blanchett, Sophia Anne Caruso, and Sofia Wylie leading things here, with noteworthy performers like Rachel Bloom, Peter Serafinowicz, Ben Kingsley, Patti LuPone, and Rob Delaney also appearing.
Henry Selick, the Oscar-nominated director behind spooky animated classics like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline, is back just in time for the Halloween season with Wendell & Wild. The movie follows a young girl named Kat (Lyric Ross) whose personal trauma brings her theoretical demons to life in the form of the hilariously mischievous Wendell (Key) and Wild (Peele).
For fans of YA horror, filmmaker Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass) brings Christopher Pike’s The Midnight Club to life. The series stars Annarah Cymone, Zach Gilford, Samantha Sloyan, and Heather Langenkamp and focuses on a group of terminally ill teens who meet at midnight to tell scary stories, grapple with mortality, and search for answers from beyond the grave.
Fans of laugh-out-loud animation have reason to celebrate as Big Mouth is back for season 6 and the raunchy comedy and awkward storylines are sure to continue. On the food front, Nicole Byer returns in Nailed It! season 7 to cook up a bunch of creepy goodies for the Halloween season, and host Phil Rosenthal is once again traveling the world, and eating delicious foods, in Somebody Feed Phil season 6.
