Poster of the Week
There's something big coming in "Stranger Things" that looks set to turn the town of Hawkins upside-down. The fantasy drama has a lot to live up to following the runaway success of the first season. But if the ominous teasers are anything to go by, this looks to be a supernatural thriller turned up to Eleven.

Wolfpack Reunion of the Week
The wolfpack is back! This week gave us the air date for the final 10 episodes of "Teen Wolf" (July 30), and a Season 6B trailer that asked more questions than it answered, hinted at possible big deaths to come, and gave us not one but two OMG moments as fan favorites Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) and Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) appeared on the screen. We're devastated that there are only 10 more episodes in our future but can't wait to see how it all ends.

Snub of the Week
When the Emmy nominations were announced, we were very excited to see nods for "Westworld," "Big Little Lies," and "Stranger Things" (Yay Barb!). But the hardcore fans on the team were disappointed that "The Leftovers" received only one nomination for Ann Dowd. After that powerful series finale, we were hoping Justin Theroux and Carrie Coon would be acknowledged or at the very least that the show would earn a writing nomination. Thank goodness Carrie received a nomination for her work in "Fargo."

Casting News of the Week
Bill Skarsgård is the latest to join the impressive cast of the Stephen King multiverse series "Castle Rock, alongside Sissy Spacek and André Holland." Little is known about his character except that he has "an unusual legal problem," which in the world of Stephen King probably means he's going to suffer a terrible fate. This will be Skarsgård's second Stephen King project, as he'll soon be appearing as the nightmare-inducing Pennywise the Clown in the upcoming 'It.'

Comic-Con Memory of the Week
Looking back on the career of Nelsan Ellis, who sadly passed away on July 8 at the age of 39, we found this great photo of him at a Comic-Con panel with his "True Blood" co-stars Deborah Ann Woll and Rutina Wesley. We'll miss you, Lafayette. We'll miss you even more, Nelsan.

Monkey Business of the Week
War for the Planet of the Apes is finally here, and we've got a few primers to get you ready for the film. The cast told us what it was like working with Woody Harrelson, MONDO and their artists created an incredible series of posters for the saga, and we looked back on the career of 'Apes' star Andy Serkis.

Second Chance of the Week
When we first learned about "Fear the Walking Dead," we were excited about the idea of the spin-off. We stuck with it through the first season but gave up midway through the second. Then, we heard word that Season 3 was not only getting high ratings but was being touted as better than the original. So, we gave it another try. And after one episode, we fell into a zombie binge. We won't say it's better than "The Walking Dead," but it's pretty darn good.

Disappearing Actor of the Week
The amazing Andy Serkis has an uncanny ability to disappear into a role, even when he's not doing motion-capture performances. Case in point: His performance as the dastardly Frenchman, Rigaud, in "Little Dorrit." Serkis also stars in War for the Planet of the Apes, which opens this weekend.

Clown Return of the Week
All you fans of Twisty the Clown can rejoice: The cult-fave character will be returning for Season 7 of "American Horror Story." Ryan Murphy announced the news on Instagram this week with a totally fitting message: "He's Baaaaaack." For those keeping score, Twisty (John Carroll Lynch) last graced an "AHS" episode in Season 4 ("Freak Show") in 2015.

Untitled Movie Project of the Week
Quentin Tarantino is quietly at work on his latest film project, and sources are reporting that the story will focus on the notorious Manson family murders that rocked Hollywood in 1969. This "unique take" on the gruesome killings will be Tarantino' ninth film. For a director who has committed to making only 10 films, it's no surprise he has A-list talent like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence reportedly lining up to star.
