Netflix renews ‘The Umbrella Academy’ for a fourth and final season


The Hargreeves sibs will fight on, but for just one more season: ABC Audio has confirmed Netflix has renewed The Umbrella Academy for a fourth and final season.

The acclaimed sci-fi show, which first debuted in 2019, is based on the comic book series of the same name created by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and artist Gabriel Bá.

Season 3 kicked off on June 22 and saw returning cast members Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin H. Min facing off with the Sparrow Academy, another super-powered sibling group.

Rob Zombie shares first teaser for upcoming ’The Munsters’ movie

Rob Zombie has shared the first teaser for his upcoming The Munsters movie.

The clip, which the “Dragula” rocker posted to his Instagram, begins as a nearly shot-for-shot remake of the original ’60s TV show’s opening credits, with Herman Munster, here played by Jeff Daniel Phillips, busting through a door, followed by Sheri Moon Zombie‘s Lily Munster and Daniel Roebuck‘s Grandpa, all set to the classic Munsters theme song.

The teaser then transitions from black and white to color as we see the trio silently sit together on a couch until Grandpa pipes up to ask, “Well, now what?”

Presumably we’ll find out when The Munsters premieres later this year.

The film will be rated PG, which may be surprising, given Zombie’s often bloody and violent filmography. In an Instagram post earlier this year, Zombie hinted at the more family-friendly tone of the movie, writing, “For those of you speculating, wondering and assuming that The Munsters would be dirty, violent and nasty … well, you are wrong.”

Meanwhile, Zombie is preparing to hit the road on the Freaks on Parade tour alongside Mudvayne, Static-X and Powerman 5000. The outing launches in July.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker say I do, again, in Italy

The third set of “I dos” vowed by Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker on Sunday was to die for.

The couple, who had a Las Vegas wedding in April and then jumped the broom officially in a private ceremony in Santa Barbara, California, a few weeks later, were apparently warming up for their nuptials at a lavish ceremony and reception in Portofino, Italy, on Sunday.

Kourtney wore a Dolce & Gabbana wedding dress with an enormous train to the ceremony before changing into a short black number for the after-party — all the better to hit the dance floor. Travis, for his part, wore a traditional black tux to the ceremony, and a swishier, almost pajama-like outfit with sunglasses for the reception.

According to the Instagram Stories from Alabama, the Blink 182 drummer’s 16-year-old daughter, the couple cut the rug to hits from the Jackson 5, and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and “Crazy in Love” by Beyoncé. The happy couple also swayed to Etta James‘ “At Last.”

According to Page Six, the star-studded celebration ran into Monday morning.

The Osbourne family will soon be adding a new member.

Kelly Osbourne, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon, has announced that she’s expecting her first child.

“I know that I have been very quiet these past few months so I thought I would share with you all as to why,” Kelly, 37, writes in an Instagram post. “I am over the moon to announce that I am going to be a Mumma.”

“To say that I am happy does not quite cut it,” she adds. “I am ecstatic!”

Kelly’s post, which includes photos of her holding up images from an ultrasound, was also shared by her mom.

“My [heart] could not be more full!” Sharon writes. “So excited to share the beautiful journey ahead with you.”

Slipknot‘s Sid Wilson, who was confirmed to be in a relationship with Kelly earlier this year, posted an ultrasound photo, as well.

Kelly’s announcement is an especially bright bit of news amid a tough few weeks for the Osbourne family, which saw Ozzy, Sharon and Kelly herself test positive for COVID-19.

Jared Leto talks ‘Morbius’ and Sinister Six rumors on ‘The Tonight Show’

NBC/Todd Owyoung

Jared Leto stars in Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man-adjacent action film Morbius, opening April 1, and during an appearance on Tuesday’s The Tonight Show, he talked about playing the titular character, and a possible connection to Marvel’s Sinister Six group of villains.

Leto plays the titular character in Morbius, whose attempt to cure himself, and humanity, of a deadly disease gives Dr. Michael Morbius all the powers of a vampire. The Thirty Second’s to Mars frontman told Fallon he was honored to be the first to bring the character to life.

“This is, like, the first time I’ve ever starred in a big Marvel movie like this and I’m incredibly excited,” he said. “It’s the first time that Morbius has ever been on the screen, so that was a big honor to get asked to bring this character to life.”

Leto says he’s had a fascination with vampires dating back to his childhood, thanks to his grandmother. “I saw the original Dracula because of her,” he recalls. “I was up late at night…I was sleeping on the floor, which you do when you’re a kid…and she let me stay up and watch the originalDracula with her and that’s when I fell in love with vampires.”

Fallon then pulled out a picture of Leto at the Spider-Man: No Way Home premiere, in which he was wearing a chain with the numeral “6,” and pressed Jared on a possible appearance by Morbius as part of the Sinister Six supervillains squad in a future Marvel film, many of whom we’ve already seen in past Spider-Man films.

A poker-faced Leto replied, “It was actually meant to be a nine, it just got flipped.”

Leto can currently be seen starring opposite Anne Hathaway in Apple TV+’s WeCrashed.

(NOTE LANGUAGE) Like millions of Foo Fighters fans, John Stamos is mourning the loss of drummer Taylor Hawkins, who was found dead in a Bogota, Colombia, hotel room last Friday night.

Stamos posted to Instagram a video from Hawkins in which he ribs his fellow drummer for taking a spot in a commercial from him. 

“Stamos is a good buddy of mine,” Hawkins says in the clip. “He’s a great drummer…he’s a great dude, all that stuff.”

“But I am a little upset with him, actually,” Hawkins continues. “I have to be honest with you because I was supposed to do that GEICO commercial. You know that GEICO commercial where he flips, flips the stick. That was mine. Originally that was mine.”

He adds, “But they decided to go with Stamos because he’s better looking. But I am the best stick flipper around, sorry Stamos,” he continued. “I got this. It goes me, Tommy Lee, Stamos.”

For his part, the Full House star and part time Beach Boys drummer commented, “Yes, Taylor you are the best stick flipper and I miss you pal!”, adding “#gonetoof***ingsoon”.

Dave Grohl announced Tuesday that his band was cancelling the remainder of their tour “in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins.” According to Variety, Sunday’s Grammys will include a tribute to Hawkins.

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox‘s family is growing. 

Taking to social media Monday, MGK, born Colson Baker, introduced their “newest member” — a cat named Whiskey.  

“Welcome Whiskey to the gang,” the rocker wrote alongside photos and videos of their new furry friend. 

In one of the photos, Kelly and Fox appeared in matching pajamas smiling for a family photo of the trio.

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are engaged and, of course, it was anything but traditional. 

MGK, real name Colson Baker, revealed that the proposal went down on Tuesday “beneath the same branches we fell in love under.”

“‘Yes, in this life and every life’ beneath the same branches we fell in love under, i brought her back to ask her to marry me,” the rocker wrote along side a video showing off the stunning ring he proposed with on Megan’s hand.

“I know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love,” he explained. 

Megan also announced the exciting news, sharing a video of the moment MGK got down on one knee.

“In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree,” she began in the caption. “We asked for magic We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.” 

“Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him,” the Jennifer’s Body star continued. “And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes.”

“…and then we drank each other’s blood,” she added. “1.11.22.”

Megan, 35, was previously married to Brian Austin Green, who she shares three children with. MGK, 31, has no prior marriages and has one daughter.

2022 Grammy Awards are officially postponed because of COVID-19

CBS 2021 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

For a second year in a row, the Grammy Awards will not take place on January 31 as originally planned because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABC News confirms the Recording Academy has delayed this year’s ceremony, which was to be hosted again by Trevor Noah.

“After careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community and our many partners, the Recording Academy and CBS have postponed the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards Show,” the organization announced in a statement on Wednesday. 

The Recording Academy continued, “The health and safety of those in our music community, the live audience, and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly to produce our show remains our top priority. Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, holding the show on January 31 simply contains too many risks.”

At this time, the organization has not announced when the Grammys will be rescheduled, but promised the new date “will be announced soon.”

Currently, federal data reports that more than 100,000 people are hospitalized in the U.S. for COVID-19.  Data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from the weekend shows that the U.S. is now averaging nearly half a million new cases a day — averaging out to nearly six Americans testing positive every second.
