So it should surprise exactly no one that Lifetime is getting into the classic horror game with former The Walking Dead showrunner for – get this – Damien, a sequel of sorts to Richard Donner’s devilish 1976 thriller The Omen which apparently has nothing to do with Don Taylor’s 1978 sequel Damien: Omen II.
Ok, V.C. Andrews fans. We've been waiting for decades to see Petals on the Wind adapted for the screen. So how does Lifetime's TV movie measure up? I've seen it, and I'm going to be as honest as possible with you here: there's good news and there's not-so-good news.
Following up on the dramatic teaser for Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic followup Petals on the Wind, Lifetime has offered up some very fittingly floral character posters, which merge the viney look of the Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind promotional content with a bit of 70s glamour.
The Sisterhood will follow five Catholic women as they try to decide whether or not they want to change their lives forever by becoming nuns, an interesting concept that adds purpose to more casual unscripted material. It also seems to be a show where the point is literally making people try to figure out how faithful they can allow themselves to be.
We now have our first look at Lifetime's upcoming Flowers in the Attic followup, Petals on the Wind. The trailer for the TV movie begins by reminding us of the dark events that transpired in the first film, which aired earlier this year, after which we see what's ahead for Cathy and Chris a decade later. For those who've read the V.C. Andrews series, not all of the scenes glimpsed in the second half of the trailer should be familiar.

With all due respect to Keeping Up With The Kardashians and The Bachelor, I’m not sure there’s a single reality program airing today more stuffed with cringe-worthy drama than Dance Moms. From screaming matches to passive aggressive weight comments to colossal overreactions to dancing competitions, the stars have never met a situation they’re unwilling to overreact to
Lifetime has cancelled Drop Dead Diva again. But there's a bright side to the situation this time around, as news of the cancellation comes ahead of the sixth season premiere, as opposed to after the season aired. The last time they cancelled the show, fans were left hanging on a pretty major cliffhanger. Hopefully that won't be the case for Season 6.

Those who read V.C. Andrews’ Flowers in the Attic at some point in the last few decades are likely looking forward to this weekend when Lifetime airs the small screen adaptation of the novel about four kids locked away for years by their own mother.

In an effort to spread some Christmas discomfort and remind fans that the Grandmother is on the way, Lifetime shared the above image on their Facebook page last night, which shows Ellen Burstyn looking less than jolly as the Grandmother.
