Can't wait for the next season of your favorite show to be available on Netflix? It's likely you won't have to wait a long time. Unfortunately, the film industry doesn't always move as fast. Imagine having to wait for decades to find out what happens next! Such is the case with some of the most popular movie franchises in history. 

In 1996, the movie 'Twister' hit screens everywhere causing nightmares about tornadoes for millions of viewers! It follows a storm chaser (Bill Paxton) and a meteorologist (Helen Hunt) who are going through a divorce, but have to work together when a series of violent tornadoes start to break out all over Oklahoma. The cast also included the late great Philip Seymour Hoffman. It became a cult classic and one of the early movies to herald a future of extreme weather caused by climate change, followed by the likes of 'The Day After Tomorrow' (2004). 

Universal recently revealed that a sequel entitled 'Twisters' is in the works and they've got an all-star team on board. The screenplay is being written by Mark L. Smith, co-writer of 'The Revenant' (2015), and 'Minari' (2020) director Lee Isaac Chu will be taking the director's chair. The cast has not yet been revealed, but a release date has been secured for July 19, 2024.
