Horrific Recap of August 8 - 14, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

Hey there, horror fans and welcome back! It's the start of a new week and that means it's time for another Horrific Recap, brought to you by Horror Junket. Thank you for dropping by because I'm excited to get a few of last week's horror tidbits to you, and if you haven't done so already, go ahead and grab your pillow tight—a little tighter now, because things are about to get all bump in the night as we recap some of last week's spookiest horror news.


Sunday - August 8

A new trilogy of books is coming for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe, published by Disney Hyperion and written by Kendare Blake.

In Every Generation will be the first novel in the set of three young adult books, and will not focus on the favored vampire slayer, Buffy. Attention will instead be turned towards the offspring of someone very close to the much loved slayer.

Kendare Blake will write the story of Frankie Rosenberg, daughter of Willow, who is trying to find her place as both a witch and slayer. A sophomore at New Sunnydale High, Frankie also learns from her mother about being a good witch and using her powers to help the world.

A new generation of slayer is born early next year when In Every Generation, the first of three books, arrives on shelves and digitally January 4, 2022.


Monday - August 9

Catherine Zeta-Jones joins Wednesday, the upcoming Netflix series from Tim Burton.

The Oscar winning actress will join Jenna Ortega and Luis Guzmán, for the live action series that stars Ortega's Wednesday Addams, as she navigates school, life and her kooky mysterious family.

The eight episode series continues its dealings in pre-production with the possibilities of filming starting later this year.


Tuesday - August 10
