Last April BBC One brought us a new six-part sitcom about a group of ghosts in the crumbling Button Hall. Their existence was thrown into turmoil when a young urban couple inherit the derelict country house. The BBC have confirmed that the sitcom will return for another series at a yet to be confirmed date in 2020.

Stranger Things

Soon after the last season of Netflix's supernatural smash came to an end, its writers, the Duffer brothers, confirmed that a fourth season had been green lit.

There's been no official mention of a date yet, but the writers tweeted what could be a clue over the New Year. The Stranger Things Writers account tweeted the upcoming seasons tagline written across the figures 2020. The writers have not replied to any of their followers asking if this is a clue about the date of the next season, but we think you can take this to mean that season four is coming in 2020.

Inside No. 9

Inside No. 9 - Series 5

We haven't heard from Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton's since their spooky 2018 Halloween special, but a fifth series of the dark anthology show is due to air on BBC Two in February with six new episodes. Pemberton spoke about how they write the show, "we always like to be in the same room, which a lot of writing partners don't. We live very close to each other so we have a little office and go to the same places for our lunch and we spitball a lot of ideas for a long time."

Because The Night

Because The Night

'Luther' creator Neil Cross has written a dark new four-part series for ITV starring Russell Tovey as Nathan, based on his 2009 book, 'Burial'. The drama unfolds almost a decade into Nathan's new devoted married life, when he is rocked to the core when Bob, an unwelcome face from the past, turns up on his doorstep with shocking news, triggering a series of catastrophic decisions. 'Because The Night' promises to feature murder and possibly even ghosts.

The Haunting Of Bly Manor

'The Haunting Of Hill House' Season 2

With its hidden ghosts, terrifying horror elements and compelling plot line, 'The Haunting Of Hill House' is the best Netflix Original in the supernatural genre to date.

So, it's no surprise that the show returns this year, but focussing on a completely different story with no connection to season one. Season two will draw inspiration from Henry James' 1898 psychological horror 'The Turn Of The Screw', and will have all new characters - although there will be some familiar faces.

The Haunted Hunts

The Haunted Hunts are a paranormal investigation team from the North West of England. The gang is lead by Danny Moss, alongside Rebecca Salisbury-Moss, Emma Dawe, Charlie Rutter, and Roxanne Rutter.

The team's second series, entitled 'Civitas Spirituum' lands on Amazon Prime on 5th March. The six new episodes will follow the team as they investigate claims that Chester is one of the most haunted cities in the UK.

Truth Seekers

Simon Pegg & Nick Frost

British comedians Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are no strangers to the world of the paranormal and the weird. For their next project, the pair have gone all out supernatural as they take on the roles of paranormal investigators in their upcoming Amazon Prime series, 'Truth Seekers'.

The project was first announced last year and few details have been released since, but fans are already excited at the thought of seeing the duo hunting ghosts. There's not yet a confirmed date for the series, but we're hoping it might come to the streaming platform this year.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Without a doubt, the biggest paranormal movie release of the year is the new Ghostbusters movie. 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' serves as a sequel to the original 'Ghostbusters' and 'Ghostbusters II', effectively writing off 2016's 'Answer The Call'.

This time around it is directed by Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the original two films. The movie stars Carrie Coon as Callie, the mother of two children Trevor and Phoebe, played by 'Stranger Things' star Finn Wolfhard and  Mckenna Grace - the grandchildren of one of the original Ghostbusters.

It ran for three successful series, notching up a total of 30 episodes, as well as a handful of specials, Ian and Barry then decided to make a movie version of the podcast.

The movie gets its first public screening in London at the start of the year, but full details of the movie's release have not yet been announced. Presumably the film will be available to watch for free online at some point early this year as much of the funding came via donations from fans of the podcast.

The Grudge

'The Grudge', starring John Cho, is released on 24th January, making it the first horror movie release of the year. The movie is set in a house that is cursed by a vengeful ghost that dooms those who enter it with a violent death.

Brahms: The Boy II

Brahms: The Boy II

The 2016 movie 'The Boy' once again proved that dolls are terrifying. What made the Brahms doll in 'The Boy' even more scary is that you never actually saw him move. If you've recovered from the nightmares and are feeling brave, then you can get a whole new dose of scares in cinemas this February with the movie's sequel. The movie tells the story of a family who move into the Heelshire Mansion, their young son soon makes friends with a life-like doll called Brahms.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

The Conjuring 3

The Witches

The Witches
