Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, Demogorgons of all ages! MDRN Mag can proudly say that Hopper is alive! He’s alive! And breathing! And not dead! Now I’m not saying I single handedly saved Hopper but…

How do we know this? Well the people of Stranger Things decided to give the world the greatest Valentines Day gift ever!

Boom! So while you couples are out there enjoying your chocolates, roses and romantic dates, we’ll be over here binge watching Stranger Things because our man is alive!

Yes, they cut off his gorgeous locks of hair BUT a bald Hop is better than no Hop.

In light of this amazing news… There is only one gif to sum it all up.

Sabrina Brings Chills With A Musical Trailer For Pt 3

Sabrina

Ladies and gents, we’re headed back to Greendale with Sabrina. We’ve been dying to go back. And good for that, because by the looks of the trailer we’re headed straight to hell. After the shocking twist in the season two finale, we’ve been going crazy wondering what’s going to happen next.

From the trailer above, we can tell that we’ve barley (Nicholas) scratched the surface on the crazy stuff about to go down. In the song, Sabrina sings about saving her love (Nicholas) from the devil. And she’s willing to pay whatever price she has to pay.

Also seen in the trailer, we can see that there will be lots and lots of new spells to be cast and seances to be done… So our only question is this:

What spell can we use to make it January 24th already?

“You” Has Given Us Some Of The Best Memes

You

YOU has proved to be one of the greatest shows Netflix has produced… Kinda. YOU started off as a Lifetime series but was quickly canceled, Netflix then swooped in and saved the day.

Doubting how season 2 could be any better than 1, Netflix proved us all wrong and really stepped up the game. Now we all eagerly await season 3.

On top of being a great show… It created even better memes.

AHS Season 10: What To Expect

AHS Season 10

AHS Season 10 is now a full go! But is it the end of the series?

The season finale of American Horror Story: 1984 just aired, and we are already getting prepared for the next season.

If you are an avid MDRN MAG fan you might remember our theories and explanationS article that we put out before 1984 even aired. If you didn’t let us do a quick recap!

Before the season even hit televisions, we predicted that this season would have “sex and lust” as a major theme… And we were right. How did we guess this? Well we have the theory that each of the seasons is a different circle of hell in Dante’s Inferno. And Lust was the only circle left. Which fit the bill of the season perfectly.

We also predicted that season 10 would be the last season of American Horror Story. And “take place” some way in hell, Being the last stop in Dante’s Inferno. Recently some information was released about AHS Season 10 that is making that theory also seem to be true.

Show co-creator Ryan Murphy spoke to Deadline about the upcoming season and said…

We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back – because it might be our last season. It’s the last season we have contracted. 

Ryan Murphy

He also said another very interesting and very exciting fact about season 10…

The people who helped build this show into what it is, who believed in it from the beginning, have been contacted and are interested. So if you look at the iconography of the first three seasons, you can figure who I’ve gone to and who might be coming back. 

Ryan Murphy

So if we go by that statement we are expecting Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Queen Supreme herself Jessica Lange. And when we say expecting that just means they better be in the last season or we riot.

Now, as for the season “theme” or “title,” it’s still up in the air. Murphy stated before that Episode 8 of 1984 would contain a big hint to the next seasons plot… But that could be anything. Luckily an AHS fan account has broke down all the possibilities. (Be sure to click through the thread to see all of the theories!)

If you ask us, they could really play on the “Urban Legends” mixed with hell theme. If they have urban legends and AHS “legends” it would be a clever way to close out the series. (which we are not ready to say goodbye to.)

Granted FOX has the option of ordering new seasons, but with the Disney merger it’s up in the air. Ryan has previously stated that he feels this is a show that can “continue for several more years. Maybe the show will move to Netflix if a FOX contract isn’t drawn up.

Only time will now tell the fate of AHS Season 10 and it’s future! You can be assured that we will keep you all up to date with all the new details. We promise!

YOU Is The Christmas Present For All Of Us

you

Merry Christmas to all and to all a fright night! Netflix announced that their thriller show YOU will air December 26th.

You season 1 aired on the Lifetime Channel but did not gain popularity until it’s rerelease on Netflix coincidentally also on December 26th of last year. And from there it just blew up!

Ever since we finished binging season 1 we have been dying (ha) to know what will happen to Joe next. Well, we’ll find out after Christmas!

Here’s what we know

It will be a 10 episode season.

A small synopsis: Joe Goldberg goes to Los Angeles, where he meets Love Quinn, an aspiring chef that isn’t into social media like his previous leading lady.

So how are we feeling? Are we ready to spend the rest of our Christmas vacation binging YOU? (The answer is “yes”).

And don’t forget to…

  • Head down to your local 7-Eleven and have a cherry slurpee. (Not a strawberry slurpee. There is a difference, Hopper.)
  • Perform your best rendition of “The NeverEnding Story” like Dustin and Susie.
  • Peer pressure the Duffer Brothers into giving us Hopper back in season 4.
  • But whatever you do, do not commence an “Operation Child Endangerment”.
