Hill House Star Oliver Jackson-Cohen Joins Haunting of Bly Manor

Hill House actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen is joining Vitoria Pedretti in the cast for the upcoming season, The Haunting of Bly Manor. Mike Flangan’s The Haunting of Hill House series was a big hit for Netflix last year, dramatically re-imagining Shirley Jackson’s source material to positive effect. The streaming giant has since announced that the show is becoming an anthology and will base its second season, Bly Manor, on Henry James’ famous 1898 horror novella, The Turn of the Screw. As a result, the next installment will feature all-new characters and settings.

What it won’t feature, thankfully, is a completely new cast. Just last month, it was announced that Hill House breakout Victoria Pedretti is returning to star in Bly Manor, with Flanagan once again calling the shots as director. While plot details are mostly being kept under-wraps for now, it has been confirmed that Pedretti will headline Bly Manor as Dani, a young governess who is hired to care for two “very unusual” children at the eponymous (and, possibly, haunted for real) estate.

The Wrap is reporting that Jackson-Cohen will star opposite Pedretti in Bly Manor as Peter, an individual who’s described as simply being a “charming fellow”. Peter is also said to be a leading character and will reportedly interact with Dani directly while she’s working at her (creepy) new job.

It’s only fitting that Jackson-Cohen and Pedretti reunite for Bly Manor; the pair played twin siblings Luke and Eleanor “Nell” on The Haunting of Hill House, and their characters shared a special connection that made it all the harder for them to recover from their traumatic childhood experiences when their family lived in Hill House. As impressive as the Hill House cast was overall, Jackson-Cohen and Pedretti had, in some ways, the most challenging roles and really stood out among the talented ensemble for it. Filmmakers have clearly taken notice of them too, as evidenced by Jackson-Cohen having also been recently cast as The Invisible Man in Universal’s reboot.

Now that Jackson-Cohen and Pedretti are back for Bly Manor, though, it will be interesting to see what other Hill House cast members end up returning for this new installment. Carla Gugino, who played Luke and Nell’s mother Olivia, has confirmed that she and Flangan (who’ve worked together multiple times already) have discussed it, so there’s a real possibly that she too will sign on down the line. Who knows: if there are enough roles to go around and things work out scheduling-wise, the entire Crain family may yet reunite for a second round of Haunting together.

The Myers-Briggs® Types Of Fuller House Characters

People often say that TV has gone pretty wild for reboots in the past few years, and that is definitely true. When it was announced that there would be a Netflix reboot of the popular sitcom Full House, ’90s kids were curious to see what it would be like.

While Fuller House is ending its run soon and the fifth season will be its last, there are plenty of cute (and, yes, cheesy at times) episodes to watch. The best part about Fuller House is that some of the old characters are back, along with some new faces. Let’s think about the Myers-Briggs® Personality Types of the gang.

Here are the MBTI of Fuller House characters.

9 Danny Tanner: ISTJ

Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) only appears in a few episodes of Fuller House but he’s a solid addition to the Netflix reboot. Fans remember him as the neat freak who looks after his daughters with so much love and compassion. It’s always good to see a familiar character on a reboot since it reminds viewers why they love the series so much.

RELATED: 

20 Celebrities You Never Knew Were On Full House

Danny’s MBTI would be ISTJ or “Responsible Realist.” The official description says, “They typically enjoy working within clearly defined systems and processes in a traditional, task-oriented, decisive way.” That is exactly how Danny approaches cleaning. He’s also “thorough” and “practical.”

8 Matt Harmon: ISTP

Matt Harmon (John Brotherton) is one of DJ’s love interests, and fans who don’t want her to end up with her former boyfriend Steve definitely root for DJ and Matt. They work together and he’s very kind toward her.

Since Matt is a doctor, he’s an organized guy who seems like a good, loyal person. His MBTI is ISTP or “Logical Pragmatist.” He’s not one to freak out when something goes wrong, which is good since he’s a vet who works with animals and there are some mishaps that happen at the clinic. ISTPs are also “confident” which describes Matt, who knows that he loves DJ and even proposes to her.

Kimmy Gibbler’s husband, Fernando (played by Juan Pablo Di Pace), is sweet and funny. The two make an awesome couple, and it’s refreshing to see a sitcom pair who have their ups and downs. They are both equally quirky but we can tell that they’re figuring out how to make their marriage work, which is fairly realistic.

RELATED: Fuller House Season 2 Halloween Teaser; Full Trailer Tomorrow

Fernando is exactly who he is and not concerned about what others think of him. His MBTI would be ENFJ or “Compassionate Facilitator.” Fernando is a wonderful husband and really wants what is best for Kimmy and their daughter, Ramona. ENFJs “make decisions that respect and take into account the impact on others” which is exactly him. He composes a song “Kimberlina, Mi Amor” so he’s an artistic person as well.

7 Jackson Fuller: ESFJ

DJ’s son Jackson Fuller is a sweet kid who is fairly typical. He wants to go out with Lola, he wants to be popular, and he loves his family (even if they drive him nuts all the time… just like the good old days on Full House).

Jackson is an ESFJ or “Supportive Contributor.” He would do anything for the people that he loves, particularly Lola, and is the kind of person who would definitely change his looks or personality in order to be liked. Jackson is also much more vulnerable than he appears, and he sounds like an ESFJ in that aspect as well: this personality type doesn’t like having a “lack of emotional support.” He may try to look cool but he still needs his mom.

6 Max Fuller: ENTP

Elias Harger plays the adorable Max Fuller, DJ’s other son. Max is totally hilarious. He is especially confident and loves being around his family. He’s even got a crush on a girl named Rose (McKenna Grace).

Max is often dreaming up plans, which makes him an ENTP or “Enterprising Explorer.” He may be young but that won’t stop him. For instance, in the second season, he creates a farm in his backyard.  ENTPs are “questioning” and they can find artistic and different ways to approach a situation, which is the way that Max operates for sure.

5 Ramona Gibbler: ISFP

Soni Bringas plays Kimmy’s daughter Ramona, who is a super talented dancer and performer. She has the quirks of her mom (watching the two of them break into a dance sequence is both cheesy and amazing) and she’s a good kid.

RELATED: Fuller House Teaser: One Big Family Back Together

Ramona is as sensitive as any young girl who is experiencing crushes and the weird stuff that happens in middle and high school, and she fluctuates between being self-assured and being insecure. Her MBTI would be ISFP or “Versatile Supporter.” These are people who assist other people without losing who they are. Ramona is always there for her mom and dad, but she’s her own girl, too.

4 Jimmy Gibbler: ENFP

Jimmy Gibbler is played by and his MBTI would be ENFP or “Imaginative Motivator.” The description of this type — “Their energy is stimulated by new people and experiences” — is exactly Jimmy. He’s fun, friendly, and he falls in love with Stephanie Tanner, which is sweet to watch.

Jimmy could be called “gregarious” which is one of the descriptors for this personality type. Jimmy also dislikes details and he has that in common with ENFPs. Like his sister Kimmy, Jimmy is a bit weird, but it works and he’s fully himself.

3 Stephanie Tanner: ENTJ

The girl who once said “How rude” (along with many other hilarious things) is now an adult who is still living in the Tanner house. These days, she dreams of becoming pregnant, is a DJ, and also writes songs.

Jodie Sweeten plays this character with a certain kind of ditzy charm. Stephanie would be an ENTJ or “Decisive Strategist.” While she often seems like she’s happy-go-lucky and would be fine with anything that happens, she actually sets goals for herself. She wants to start a family and find some success. ENTJs are “take charge” people who are “tough when necessary” and that’s totally Stephanie. She’s a sister that D.J. can count on and a good friend to Kimmy (and probably never imagined she would be Kimmy’s pal).

2 Kimmy Gibbler: ESTP

Kimmy Gibbler definitely has to be an ESTP or “Energetic Problem-Solver.” She’s larger than life, very artistic, and likes being with a large group of people. It makes sense, then, that she would become a party planner.

RELATED: Fuller House Season 1 Overview: The Good, The Bad & Steve

ESTPs aren’t ones for “isolation” and they are “fun-loving” and “versatile.” We all remember Kimmy as the next door neighbor who drives Stephanie and Michelle nuts (and, okay, the rest of the family, too). She’s best pals with D.J. so everyone is somewhat okay with her. Kimmy gets her due for sure in Fuller House and we get to watch her come into her own as a smart woman who may be quirky but that is her whole charm.

1 D.J. Tanner-Fuller: INFJ

INFJs or “Insightful Visionaries” are “quietly inspiring” which is definitely D.J. Tanner-Fuller. She’s smart (she runs her household perfectly and also her own vet clinic), she’s sweet (she’s impossible to dislike), and she even has two guys who want to marry her.

D.J. doesn’t like when things are messy (she got that trait from her dad) and she’s also someone who won’t rest until she makes something happen. It’s fun to watch D.J. as an adult running the Tanner house.

MBTI® Of House MD Characters

At the core of the Show House’s success are the huge personalities that make up the good doctor’s team. If there weren’t some larger than life characters surrounding Hugh Laurie’s they’d be easily eclipsed by his grumpy demeanor. Each member of the team is worth taking a deeper look at.

RELATED: House: 20 Things About Dr. House That Make No Sense

They each have obvious traits and characteristics that drive them. Keep reading to discover the Meyers-Briggs® type of each member of House’s team as well as a few others.

10 Gregory House (INTJ)

The titular character of House has a huge personality. It’s fairly easy to pin down his MBTI because of how over the top his traits are. Dr. House is known for being difficult to read. His witty, very dry sense of humor is his calling card. House has such a skeptical outlook on life it borders on full-blown nihilism.

It’s clear to see that House is n INTJ. He’s logical, analytical and scathing. He has no patience for ineptitude. House isn’t open to constructive criticism. He doesn’t think of many people as having the authority to judge his actions of choices. INTJs can feel very alone if they never learn to let people in.

9 Eric Foreman (ISTJ)

The ISTJ’s need to feel useful needed and worthy is strong. They often operate in a strictly “by the book” fashion and can seem rigid and overly thoughtful. This personality type takes rejection very hard. They tend to withdraw and become distant one their pride has been hurt. They may be very protective of themselves and come off as aloof or detached.

RELATED: MBTI® Of The Magicians Characters

Dr. Foreman is certainly one to follow policies and procedures. It’s easy to watch him shut down rather than argue when he sees that he’s defeated.

8 James Wilson (INFJ)

Don’t let INFJ’s outgoing personality fool you. This type may seem outwardly open they’re more private than anyone realizes. INFJ’s often find themselves in leadership roles. They’re driven, but also deeply compassionate.

INFJ is an empathetic personality type. They’re excellent mediators who easily see multiple viewpoints of the same issue. Wilson manages to smooth over many strained relationships within the team on House. He’s also best friends with House, which is an impressive demonstration of tolerance and emotional maturity.

7 Lisa Cuddy (ESTJ)

The executive is a unifier. They use their intuition about social mores and well-defined values to bring people together. Especially in situations of conflict. They believe in dignity, honesty, and devotion. These are principled people who aren’t afraid to speak up about what they believe is right.

This personality type thrives in team environments and has no problem cooperating toward a shared vision. As Dean of Medicine Cuddy uses her leadership skills as an ESTJ every day. She brings the best parts of this high powered personality type to the show.

6 Allison Cameron (ISFJ)

ISFJs frequently choose careers in fields with a sense of duty and history to them such as medicine. This personality type has a strong sense of personal ethics. They know exactly what ideals they believe in and they try to live up to them in all areas of their lives. Cameron his a sincere character who lives up to their own idealized view of the world.

RELATED: The MBTI® Of Supergirl Characters

She believes in doing the right thing. ISFJs are incredibly social for introverts. They easily win friends and charm everyone around them. They have deep, meaningful relationships.

5 Robert Chase (ISTP)

ISTPs can be surrounded by friends and yet remain a mystery to everyone around them. Robert Chase is a perfect example of this. He surprises the team when he reveals that he had attended seminary and planned to be a priest. He was kicked out for having a salacious affair with a married woman.

This personality type is also known for being unafraid to step on toes or take risks such as when Chase happily backs up one of House’s more questionable plans. ISTPs can get themselves in over their head with their impulsive nature. Lucky for chase his mentor is an expert at wriggling out of uncomfortable situations.

4 Chris Taub (ISFJ)

ISFJs can have complicated love lives. They live for the comfort and familiarity of the longterm. They can find themselves staying in a stale relationship long after the passion has died. That may have been the case for Chris Taub. He obviously loves his wife Rachel very much but infidelity has plagued their marriage.

Outside of his life at home, he’s comfortable being outspoken at work. The ISFJ desires a smooth work environment but isn’t afraid to make sure things are done the right way. When Taub feels House is doing something wrong he isn’t afraid to stand up to him.

3 Lawrence Kutner (ENTP)

ENTPs are the ultimate devil’s advocate. They have no problem going against the grain to explore a new idea. Kutner displays this trait in multiple ways. He’s happy to back up House in risky choices and even illegal activities. He’s also incredibly hungry for new experiences. He’s ready to push the envelope in the name of medicine.

That’s his ENTP nature. He isn’t afraid to smash the rules to get things done. Much like his personality type suggests, Kutner’s head is easily turned by beautiful women. His thirst for constant forward motivation, innovation, and novelty extends to his romantic relationships as well.

2 Remy Hadley (ISTP)

Thirteen is another Virtuoso personality type on the team. Much like Chase she keeps her secrets close and isn’t one to divulge much personal information. She doesn’t even reveal her given name for a couple of seasons. Female ISTPs are rare and special. They’re often thought of as tomboys during their youth. Many gender stereotypes are often applied to female ISTPs throughout their lives.

This holds true for Thirteen. She isn’t the warm or emotional character one would expect of a woman. She’s elusive, secretive and can seem aloof. The character further demonstrates the varied and confusing nature of the ISTP by seeming both nihilistic and claiming to believe in hope at the same time.

1 Amber Volakis (ENTJ)

ENTJs embody confidence which means they can be ruthless in getting what they want. Amber is infamous for being cutthroat on the show. As romantic partners, this personality type has a serious penchant for being controlling.

After Amber and Wilson fall in love this side of her is immediately evident. She spends episode after episode competing with House for Wilson’s attention. She takes extreme measures to get exactly what she wants. A curfew is set in place to ensure Wilson shares enough time with Amber.

Game Of Thrones: 10 Must-Own Gifts For Supporters Of House Stark

House Stark has had a tough go at it for the first seven seasons of Game of Thrones, a series that will be coming to an end after the upcoming eighth. First (spoiler alert), the patriarch Ned is not only murdered but beheaded in the most brutal fashion, with his noggin paraded on a stick for all the see. From there, it just goes downhill for the remaining Starks who are plagued with death, assault, kidnapping, ambushes, and more.

So it’s no surprise that many fans of the series are fully on Team Stark, cheering for Arya to morph into someone more badass than she already is, for Sansa to show House Stark how a true lady runs things, and for Jon (who is or isn’t an official Stark?) to claim his seemingly rightful seat on the Iron Throne.

And you can with this collectible, at least in miniature format. It features a mini version of the much-sought-after throne with a little bearded Jon comfortably parked on the seat, sword in hand ready to battle anyone who wishes to challenge him.

Full House Creator Suing Fuller House Showrunner After Firing

The home of Fuller House faces further division as Full House creator, Jeff Franklin, is suing the series’ showrunner. Franklin, the creator of Full House and its sequel series Fuller House, has slapped current showrunner, Bryan Behar with a lawsuit after Franklin’s termination last year.

Franklin is a renowned writer and producer, responsible for hundreds of hours of entertainment, including Bosom Buddies, Laverne and Shirley, and Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper. In 1987, Franklin created Full House – a sitcom about three Mr. Moms raising three little girls. Despite scathing reviews, Full House became a smash hit on ABC’s TGIF lineup, and has been hailed as one of the most iconic sitcoms of all time. Amid a reboot and revival frenzy, it was no shock to see Netflix opt to order the Full House revival series. Released in 2016, Fuller House follows the grown-up Tanner girls (excluding the Olsen Twins as Michelle), D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). Riddled with nostalgia-infused laughs, life lessons, and familiar faces, the streaming giant kept renewing the show, but announced the fifth season would be the final one. Last year, the show’s squeaky clean image took a hit when Warner Bros and Netflix fired Franklin amid accusations of abusive behavior to the staff. Now, Franklin is firing back at the people he feels are responsible for his termination.

Related: Fuller House Showrunner Dropped Amidst Behavior Complaints

According to Deadline, Franklin is seeking compensation for damages by Behar. After Franklin’s termination, Behar was promoted to executive producer and showrunner along with Steve Baldikoski. Franklin was the one who hired Behar as a writer and producer in the show’s early stages. There’s a fervent belief by Franklin that Behar was motivated by jealousy and wanted to dethrone the creator from his position. The lawsuit documents state:

“Motivated by a secret hatred of Franklin and hoping to take his place someday as showrunner, Behar concocted a plan to compile unflattering and distasteful information about Franklin that was either fabricated or twisted versions of events and presented it first to the media and then to Warner Bros in an effort to get Franklin thrown off Fuller House. Franklin is informed and believes, and based thereon alleges, that Behar also secretly photographed Franklin and his female friends at work and Franklin’s home, and also took photos of Franklin’s computer screen at the office, all of which he added to his ‘little black book’ and showed to others involved with Fuller House in order to paint Franklin in a negative light. It appears Behar took real encounters with Franklin and distorted them to create false narratives that painted Franklin as sexist and unprofessional.”

The firing of Franklin and lawsuit against the current showrunner are not the only events to taint the beloved family sitcom. Last month, fans were shocked to learn that Lori Loughlin, who plays Aunt Becky, along with Felicity Huffman and a group of others were indicted for their involvement in a college admissions scam. Following the accusations, Netflix announced Loughlin will not return to Fuller House season 5. After originally facing five years maximum in prison, Loughlin and others didn’t initially plead guilty in the federal investigation. Prosecutors slapped on secondary charges of conspiring to launder bribery, which meant Loughlin could face up to 40 years in prison. Recently, Loughlin pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The legal issues for Franklin, Behar, and Loughlin will live on long after Fuller House ends. What will remain is the show’s success, one-liners, and fan base. Fuller House seems to have kept its morals after the exit of Franklin, but that still remains to be seen for Aunt Becky’s absence. Members of the cast have shown their support for each other amid controversy, and a desire to mend the cracks in the Fuller House to keep it standing.

The Best Locations To Buy A House In Skyrim

Buying a house is a stressful event at the best of times, even if it’s only in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – here’s a guide to the best locations to settle down in. Skyrim was released in 2011 and its a testament to the game’s staying power fans are still playing it. Bethesda Softworks (Fallout) crafted an incredible open-world fantasy game for players to become utterly immersed in, where the simple quest to slay a dragon evolves into something much deeper.

Exploring Skyrim’s vast landscape opens up a world of possibilities, where the player’s choices have a huge impact on how the adventure evolves. The game received some negative feedback upon release for technical bugs and issues, but not enough to distract from the quality of the experience. Fans of the franchise are eagerly awaiting the arrival of The Elder Scrolls 6, which is likely many years away, but in the meantime, even seasoned veterans of Skyrim are still finding secrets and new ways to play.

Related: How Skyrim’s Survival Mode Changes The Game

Skyrim is a title that lets players get married and adopt children, so it only makes sense they can buy a home too. Of course, just like looking for a house in real life, players will need to weigh up the pros and cons of purchasing their new abode, including price, location, and benefits. Just like exploring the wasteland in Fallout 4, it’s just good for players to have somewhere to call home in-between quests and adventuring. Buying a home can be tricky without a little pre-planning, so here’s a brief guide to the best houses in Skyrim.

Honeyside (Between 5000 – 8000 Gold)

Honeyside in Riften is a modest home for a modest price, but it comes with a lot of benefits. It has a personal dock, an alchemy table, a cooking pot, and even a tanning rack. The dock is very useful for those with a bounty on them, and the Honeyside garden produces alchemy ingredients and food. The aesthetically pleasing wood cabin look doesn’t hurt either.

Hjerim (8000 – 12000 Gold)

Hjerim in Windhelm isn’t one of the cheapest houses in Skyrim but it’s well located, it has lots of storage space and comes complete with an enchanting table and alchemy table. It located near an alchemist shop and a smelter too.

Proudspire Manor (Cost: 25000 Gold)

While Proudspire Manor is the most expensive house in Skyrim – and costs more to upgrade – it’s also one of the best. Proudspire is found in Solitude and in addition to coming with lots of space, this three-floor home also has a handy alchemy lab and is only a short walk from a nearby market filled with goods. It’s also got a patio with a nice view of the landscape.

For completionists, buying Proudspire Manor is needed to complete the No Stone Unturned side quest because one of the Stones of Barenziah is found inside.

Related: The 20 Most Powerful Weapons In Skyrim

Severin Manor (Free)

In addition to being one of the best houses in Skyrim, Severin Manor easily has the best price. Severin is located in Raven Rock and is awarded to players upon completion of the Served Cold quest. The manor is a spacious place, coming complete with a cooking pot, small garden and other perks like a forge and alchemy lab. There are plenty of additional benefits, but neither a spouse nor children can move into it. The location could also be better, but again, the price is definitely right.

Fuller House’s Lori Loughlin Expected to Do Prison Time Over College Scandal

Lori Loughlin may serve jail time over her involvement in the massive college admissions bribery case that broke last month. The former Fuller House star and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli reportedly paid half a million dollars to get their two kids into USC either by faking athletic records or cheating their SAT scores. Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman is also embroiled in the cast with William H. Macy’s wife supposedly doling out $250,000 to get in on the same scheme.

A staple of the Hallmark Channel’s annual Christmas TV movies, Loughlin was also starring in its ongoing series, When Calls the Heart. But the actress first shot to fame playing the love interest of John Stamos’ Uncle Jesse in the ’80s/’90s classic family sitcom Full House, Aunt Becky. When the spinoff was officially ordered by Netflix followed by its debut on 2016, she reprised the role in its past four seasons. But since this scandal broke out, both Hallmark and Netflix dropped her in their respective shows. This means that Fuller House‘s upcoming fifth and final season will not see the return of Aunt Becky.

Now, things seems to only get worse for Loughlin as she may need to serve time in prison. According to a new report from Deadline, “the actors are more than likely looking at a penalty of somewhere around six months to just under two years behind bars.” The actress and others who are in on the scam are being charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud with a potential maximum sentence of five years. Their time behind bars, as well as probation and fines however, will be based on their cooperation in the ongoing litigation.

Despite no longer a part of the cast of Fuller House, Loughlin’s castmates, particularly Candace Cameron-Bure (DJ) and Jodie Sweeting (Stephanie) stand by the actress as they revealed in a recent interview. While they refused to comment further on the matter, they made it clear that they’re “family, and we stand by each other.” Considering that they’ve known Loughlin since they’re kids, it’s understandable that it would be difficult for them to simply write her off. Whether or not they were aware about Loughlin’s wrongdoings is a different conversation, however. At this point, the best they can do is be mum about the specifics of the case.

Assuming that Loughlin and her co-conspirators are proven guilty, the most important thing here is to not let them get away scot-free, and that doesn’t include paying fines, regardless of the amount. These people are obviously very wealthy that they can buy their kids’ way into prestigious schools, any monetary penalty wouldn’t matter that much. Regardless of the time she potentially serves in prison, what matters most is that they’re accounted for their wrongdoings so as to also serve an example for those who may be thinking of doing the same thing.

Lori Loughlin Won’t Return to Fuller House After Scandal

Embattled actress Lori Loughlin will not be returning for Fuller House‘s upcoming fifth and final season. After playing Aunt Becky in the ’80s/’90s family-oriented sitcom Full House and then reprising the role in the revival, Loughlin is currently facing charges in light of the massive college admissions bribery case that broke earlier this week.

Loughlin and husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli were among 50 people indicted with regard to said scam, which involved them paying bribes to get their kids accepted at high-profile schools such as the University of Southern California (USC), Stanford, and Yale. Apparently, the couple paid half a million dollars to have their two daughters get accepted into USC. Aside from the Giannulllis, Desperate Housewives actress and wife to Shameless star William H. Macy, Felicity Huffman, is also embroiled in the scandal. Loughlin was taken into custody on Wednesday, but is now currently out on bail. Despite this, it doesn’t seem like there’s much of her career left, as she’s getting dropped from projects that she had lined-up, including her most memorable role.

THR is reporting that Netflix is not bringing back Loughlin for Fuller House season 5 which will debut this fall. Filming has yet to start, but the actress’ legal issues won’t have an impact on the production schedule. The streaming giant and producer Warner Horizon Television have declined to comment at this point. This news comes on the heels of the Hallmark channel ending its working relationship with the actress and removing her from the ongoing series, When Calls the Heart.

The question now is: how can Aunt Becky be written out of the show – or, at least, how can her absence be explained? With Fuller House preparing to wrap things up, chances are that the veteran cast will be more prominently featured in the upcoming season to further evoke nostalgia from fans. At the end of season 4, Danny (Bob Saget), Joey (Dave Coulier), Jesse (John Stamos), and Rebecca all moved back to San Francisco to be closer to the family. Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) having her own baby will be enough reason for them to hang around the house more. Considering that Rebecca is not only married to Jesse, she’s also back working with Danny co-hosting the revival of Wake up San Francisco, it will be interesting to see how Becky’s absence is accounted for.

Like the older cast of Saget, Coulier, and Stamos, Loughlin only plays a recurring role in Fuller House, with the narrative focus more on the Tanner sisters, DJ (Candace Cameron Bure) and Stephanie, along with their eccentric friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). So, while it’ll be odd not seeing Aunt Becky on the show (especially in its final season), there are definitely ways to explain her absence. Since the show doesn’t shy away from subtly breaking away from the fourth wall from time-to-time, it’s possible that Loughlin’s real-life scandal will even be referenced in some way. Either way you cut it, Fuller House is going to a little less, well, full in its final season.

Each Hogwarts Professor And Which House They Belonged To

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that the Hogwarts professors in Harry Potter were once students. Especially the older teachers such as Dumbledore. It’s hard to ever imagine them as young, but they were all students once, and when they were, they were sorted into Hogwarts Houses just as everyone else in the books is.

How good is your knowledge about the series? Do you know which house each professor was in, or can you guess from their personality? Some are easy to guess because the house traits are so prominent, but some are a little more difficult. But don’t get too cocky, some are super surprising.

10. Albus Dumbledore: Gryffindor

Via: The Independent

Dumbledore is one of those people who could convincingly be in any house (except maybe Hufflepuff). He’s brave, but he’s also resourceful and ambitious, even manipulative. He’s definitely very clever. But, when he was 11 and sat under the Sorting Hat, it decided that he was best suited to Gryffindor and his bravery trumped all else.

That makes sense. Some people show traits from multiple houses, and although Dumbledore is definitely one of those, his passion and courage make him a Gryffindor. Like I said though, I probably wouldn’t have argued with the books if they had later revealed he was actually a Slytherin…

9. Minerva McGonagall: Gryffindor

Via: The Mary Sue

Minerva McGonagall was a hatstall, according to J.K. Rowling. A hatstall means that she fit directly into two houses and the Sorting Hat had to make a quick call, even though either would have been the right answer. She was a hatstall between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw, which makes sense. She doesn’t suffer fools gladly and is extremely intelligent, with a dry wit to her sure to make people laugh.

Ultimately though, her fiery nature makes me think that Gryffindor was absolutely the right call for her. She’s also extremely passionate about the house, clearly delighted whenever they win a Quidditch game and devastated when they lose house points.

8. Filius Flitwick: Ravenclaw

Via: Pottermore

Head of Ravenclaw is Filius Flitwick. We don’t see very much of him throughout the series; we only know that he teaches Charms and is head of Ravenclaw, so we can reasonably assume he’s very creative and intelligent since those are the prominent traits of that house.

He also seems willing to fight for what’s right. He enters the battle of Hogwarts more reluctantly than say, McGonagall, but he does so happily; meaning that although he’s a Ravenclaw, that doesn’t mean he isn’t brave or loyal. It just means that his intelligence outshines everything else. Seems like a lot of these professors could convincingly be in a couple of the houses…

7. Pomona Sprout: Hufflepuff

Via: Pottermore

Professor Sprout teaches Herbology in the books and is head of Hufflepuff. Hufflepuffs are often misjudged when it comes to the series. Because their traits aren’t as fiery or obvious as some of the other houses, they’re dismissed as being the house people are sorted into just because they don’t fit elsewhere. This, however, just isn’t true.

Hufflepuffs are loyal and kind. They stayed to fight at the Battle of Hogwarts because they knew it was the right thing to do and took no convincing, even though bravery isn’t one of their listed traits. They’re not more intelligent than Ravenclaw or courageous than Gryffindor, but their traits are amazing in their own right.

6. Severus Snape: Slytherin

Via: Hello Giggles

Then there’s Snape, head of Slytherin. There tends to be an assumption that most of Slytherin House is evil and for a while in the books, Snape did nothing to disprove this. The truth is that Slytherins aren’t inherently evil, though. They’re resourceful and ambitious, and the latter means that they sometimes come across as cutthroat. So yes, the evil dark wizards do tend to come out of Slytherin because of these traits, but that doesn’t mean they’re all evil.

And as it turns out, Snape wasn’t — even if he was an unpleasant bully to be around. He wasn’t anything like Voldemort, but I still don’t exactly love him. Sorry, Rowling.

5. Remus Lupin: Gryffindor

Via: Vanity Fair

Remus Lupin was only a teacher at Hogwarts for one year, thanks to the curse on the Defence Against The Dark Arts position. However, as he was one of the best teachers that Hogwarts ever saw, he deserves a mention here.

Remus could also have been a convincing Ravenclaw but instead, he was put in Gryffindor with the rest of his Marauder friends. Remus fought in the war against Voldemort bravely while facing his own troubles every month; namely, the fact that he was a werewolf and had to undergo an extremely painful transformation when the full moon was out.

4. Horace Slughorn: Slytherin

Via: Pottermore

Horace Slughorn is an example of a Slytherin a little different from Snape. He’s not so ambitious that he’s deeply unpleasant to others, he’s just dismissive of those he doesn’t find worthy of his time. When he appears in Half-Blood Prince, he’s very interested in Harry because of his fame, just as he was in Tom Riddle.

He’s by no means a bully though, and as the books go on, he becomes willing to do the right thing. He even mentions a fondness for Harry’s mother who was Muggle-born, proving that not all Slytherins are prejudiced against those they consider to be of lesser blood.

3. Gilderoy Lockhart: Ravenclaw… Yes, Really

Via: Pottermore

This is one that I really can’t get over.

Gilderoy Lockhart is… pretty much an idiot. The only thing he seems to be good at is memory charms, erasing the memories of great witches and wizards, and taking credit for their achievements. He’s not creative enough to make up his own stories, nor is he witty enough to make anyone like him. The only people who seem endeared by him at all are people with crushes on him because he’s good-looking; his personality leaves a lot to be desired.

And yet, he was in Ravenclaw when he was in school, according to J.K. Rowling. This one needs some explaining if you ask me…

2. Sybill Trelawney: Ravenclaw

Via: The Leaky Cauldron

Sybill Trelawney was also in Ravenclaw. This might seem surprising at first glance. She drinks too much, most of what she says isn’t at all correct, and she doesn’t seem to have her life together. Funny enough, Ravenclaws are associated with being practical and level-headed.

It is, however, a little more believable than Lockhart for the sheer reason that Trelawney’s claims about being a Seer weren’t actually false. She did make a couple of real prophecies, so it wasn’t total rubbish that she believed herself to be able to see the future.

Still, she’s definitely not someone who’s an example of a typical Ravenclaw.

1. Rubeus Hagrid: Gryffindor

Via: Pottermore

Hagrid was eventually given the Care of Magical Creatures professor job at Hogwarts, despite having been expelled from the school when he was a student. And boy, does he deserve to work there despite his expulsion.

Hagrid is a Gryffindor alumnus, and unlike a lot of the other professors, this seems to be the only house that would adequately fit him. He’s eagerly brave, willing to do what’s right, and seems to care deeply and passionately about people. Hagrid is one of the best people among the professors and although a little clumsy and tactless, is very well-meaning, and this is what makes him perfect for his house.

Myers-Briggs® Personality Types Of Haunting Of Hill House Characters

When viewers first begin watching The Haunting of Hill House, it’s very easy to get the main characters mixed up. There are five brunette children, all of whom are very close in age, and frequent flashback scenes require viewers to constantly match the child with their adult counterparts. It can be exhausting, but if you hold out for a few episodes you’ll notice that each character has their own unique personality that inevitably clashes with someone else’s. If this series wasn’t one of the best horror shows on Netflix, then it could definitely win the prize for best character development in a series. So, are you interested in the Myers-Briggs® type of each character? Your wish is my command.

7. Steven Crain: ISTJ, The Responsible Realist

Via: Thrillist.com

Steven Crain is an ISTJ, which makes perfect sense when you think about it. As a writer, Steven is introverted and prefers to work alone. Like Steven, ISTJs are matter-of-fact, realistic, and responsible. With such a practical nature, it’s hard for Steven to accept any paranormal explanations for what’s going on around him. Unlike his younger sister, Nell, Steven makes decisions logically instead of with his gut/heart, which often unintentionally hurts the people around him (i.e., his decision to profit off of their childhood trauma).

6. Shirley Crain: ESTJ, The Efficient Organizer

Via: Popsugar.com

Shirley Crain is nothing if not efficient! Both in and out of work, Shirley is decisive, systematic, organized and assertive, all hallmark qualities of an ESTJ. People with this personality type have a clear set of logical standards, systematically follow them and expect everyone else to as well (they are often seen as high-handed). This can be seen in Shirley’s personal convictions, particularly when it comes to Steven “exploiting” their childhood tragedies for profit, and her firm belief that everyone in the family should be as repulsed by the idea as she is (and that they should reject any monetary gain as a result). Shirley takes comfort in the moral high ground because it’s hard to point the finger at yourself when you’re busy pointing it at someone else.

5. Theodora ‘Theo’ Crain: ISTP, The Logical Pragmatist

Via: syfy.com

Some of the words associated with ISTPs are observant, spontaneous, detached, independent and pragmatic. Theo’s “gift” of observation has definitely helped with her career, but in some ways, it has backfired and led her to become even more detached from the world around her.  Theo’s pragmatic and independent nature can be seen in her decision to secretly accept her brother’s book profits and use them to further her career as a child psychologist. In times of stress ISTPs often feel alienated, upset, and hypersensitive, feelings that keep Theo emotionally isolated from everyone around her.

4. Luke Crain: ISFP, The Versatile Supporter

Via: Popsugar.com

Similar to his twin sister, Luke Crain is a sensitive introvert who is frequently misunderstood. Unfortunately for Luke, sensitive personality types often have a difficult time handling trauma and grief without using coping mechanisms, and in this case, the coping mechanism was a heroin needle. When Luke is clean, his true personality shines through and we see that he is gentle, caring, attuned to others and trusting (all attributes of an ISFP). Not only is Luke attuned to his twin sister, he’s also attuned to the needs of others, often extending a helping hand and trusting people even when he probably shouldn’t (his friend in rehab, for example).

RELATED: Haunting of Hill House Ending Theory: Luke is Still IN the Red Room

3. Nell Crain: INFP, The Thoughtful Idealist

Via: tvguide.com

Only one letter away from her twin brother, Nell is the perfect example of an INFP. INFPs are known for their idealistic, empathetic and curious natures and crave lives that are congruent with their values. Like Luke, Nell has a hard time handling the trauma in her past and is often labeled “crazy” by her siblings. Unfortunately, Nell’s naturally curious nature and her earnest desire for a life free of pain is what leads her back to Hill House, where she meets her fateful end.

2. Hugh Crain: INTP, The Objective Analyst

Via: thecut.com

It can be hard to get a clear picture of Hugh’s personality because he is so heavily weighed down by grief and secrets, but glimpses of his younger self reveal that he is actually an INTP. People with this personality type are contemplative, analytical, contained and great problem solvers. We see these qualities appear as he and his wife, Olivia, set about trying to “flip” Hill House in the beginning. Whenever there is a problem, Hugh is ready to tackle it head-on, whether it’s mundane or supernatural. His self-containment allows him to harbor his pain for years, but also keeps him from enjoying loving relationships with his adult children.

1. Olivia Crain: ENFJ, The Compassionate Facilitator

Via: comicbook.com

This is a hard one, because by the end of the show Olivia’s personality has been heavily influenced by the House. Before the House changed her, Olivia was clearly an ENFJ, a personality type characterized by a warm, sociable, and persuasive nature. ENFJs find potential in everyone around them and want to help others fulfill their potential. Olivia is talkative, very open with strangers, and very attuned to the house and everyone around her. Unfortunately for her children, Olivia is persuasive even in death, successfully luring them back to Hill House for nefarious purposes from beyond the grave.
