Though The Walking Dead is somberly coming to an end, its spinoff, Fear of the Walking Dead, will return this month for the remainder of its seventh season.

Picking up where the first half left off, main characters Alicia Clark, played by Alycia Debnam-Carey, and Morgan Jones, portrayed by Lennie James, go to war with their former ally, Colman Domingo's Victor Strand, after the fallout of the nuclear-zombie apocalypse.

Yet the second half of the season will have a surprising twist, as it has been confirmed that Kim Dickens' character Madison Clark will return after presumably dying in season four.

Will Madison's resurrection bring peace between the fractured group?

Get ready for war! Fear of the Walking Dead's season seven returns on April 27 only on AMC.

The Wizarding World adventures continue with the next film about the origins of the infamous Albus Dumbledore and his former friend-turned-enemy Gellert Grindelwald.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore follows Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander teaming up with Dumbledore, reprised by Jude Law, to take down the dark wizard.

The upcoming movie was hit with some setbacks due to the pandemic and Johnny Depp's departure – which many fans argued was the wrong choice.

Depp originally played the sinister Grindelwald in the first two Fantastic Beasts films and has now been replaced by Mads Mikkelsen.

Will Mikkelsen do the role justice?

Find out when Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore appears in theaters April 15.

Get ready, world!

The Kar-Jenner clan is back and "realer" than ever.

After a brief hiatus from the reality-TV world, the famous-for-being-famous family will be heading to Hulu for their new show, The Kardashians.

Picking up where Keeping Up with the Kardashians left off, the bunch is again giving the world an intimate peak at their daily lives and juicy drama that's recently plagued headlines.

From Kim Kardashian's nasty split from Kanye "Ye" West to Kylie Jenner's second pregnancy, and not to mention Khloé Kardashian's recent drama with Tristan Thompson and Kourtney Kardashian's engagement to Travis Barker – there's plenty the family has to discuss.

The Kar-Jenners have teased that the Hulu series is vastly different from KUTWK, so it sounds like fans are in for a hell of a ride with the reality stars.

The Kardashians smashes onto small screens April 14 on Hulu.
