In a recent interview with Fandango, Fede Alvarez revealed a script has been written for a direct sequel to Labyrinth:
I was actually having lunch yesterday with Lisa Henson and we reconnected with that project. We’re very excited about it. It is basically a direct continuation of the first movie many years later, and I can’t tell you much more about it... but we have a script, and we’re very excited about it so we’ll see where that goes. Like always, it takes time and effort to put those movies together because they’re larger than life. But that’s one of the projects that I’m very excited about.
Alexander Skarsgård has joined the cast in a currently undisclosed role.[Deadline]

Appearing as a guest on Good Morning Britain, John Barrowman once again noted he’s eager to return to Doctor Who as Captain Jack Harkness.
Listen if they asked me, I’d go back at the drop of the hat, and I’ve always said that from the day I moved on from Torchwood and Doctor Who to other things. If they asked me, definitely—Captain Jack Harkness changed my life, Doctor Who changed my life. It led to so many other things, and I would love to play Jack again at some point.
In a recent interview with Bloody-Disgusting, Kiernan Shipka stated filming on season two is already underway:
We went straight into the second season from the first and it’s been really so exceptionally fun to film, especially given the fact that I feel like we’re already in such a rhythm from coming out of the first season that to jump right into the second one was really, really fun and just a great opportunity to keep the momentum going. Sabrina definitely changes and shifts a lot. Her growth is very evident and the second season definitely has a different spin on it than the first season. They’re very different from each other.
