Stranger Things is getting a fourth season. We cannot keep calm…..

Will Eleven and Mike reunite... again? Is Billy really dead? What happened to Hopper? What's up with that Russian prison tease?
So. Many. Questions.

And we're hoping they'll all be answered in the fourth season of Netflix's hit series "Stranger Things."

The streaming service announced the show's return Monday saying the Duffer Brothers, the creators of the series, have also signed on "to a multi-year film and series overall deal."

"The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with Stranger Things and we're thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love," Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. "We can't wait to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of The Upside Down."

We can't either.

On the show's fourth season, the only clue the video announcement offers is this: "We are no longer in Hawkins."

Should pupils be banned from bringing a packed lunch and be forced to have school dinners

A judge in Italy has ruled that children should not be allowed to take packed lunches to school- even if they don’t like the school dinners.
The supreme court decided that it was up to the school - not parents - to decide if they would allow kids to eat packed lunches on school grounds
The case came after a group of parents in Turin argued they should be able to opt out of school meals, saying they were costly and unhealthy.
But should schools here follow suit and demand kids eat school dinners, or are packed lunches a better option?

Breaking Bad movie

Breaking Bad movie teaser sees Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman return

The clip shows Jesse Pinkman listening to a radio news broadcast in the car about a massacre he escaped from in the series finale.

Breaking Bad fans have been given a glimpse of Jesse Pinkman's future in a chilling teaser for the show's movie-length sequel which airs on Netflix next month.
The film, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, stars Aaron Paul and will be available on the streaming service from 11 October.
The clip shows Jesse Pinkman (Paul) in a car as he listens to a radio news broadcast about a massacre he escaped from in the series finale.
He smokes a cigarette out of the car window - which is the same vehicle he was last seen driving - as the radio report says police are looking for a man who fled the scene.
Netflix also shared a brief teaser starring Charles Baker as his Breaking Bad character Skinny Pete in conjunction with the film.
The hugely popular American neo-Western crime drama sees its creator Vince Gilligan return as writer-director.

More than 10 Breaking Bad characters are set to star in the movie, which was filmed in a top secret production in Albuquerque, New Mexico, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Thomas Cook customers to fly home after firm collapses

The first flights bringing Thomas Cook holidaymakers home to the UK have landed amid some reports of disruption.
The government has said it will run a "shadow airline" for two weeks to repatriate the 155,00 UK tourists affected by the firm's collapse.
Transport secretary Grant Shapps said its response to the crisis was "on track so far" and "running smoothly".
But some people have complained of long queues and disruption at airports, including one who waited nine hours.

How will holidaymakers get home?

While an estimated 150,000 Britons are affected by Thomas Cook's collapse, the company has up to a further 450,000 customers abroad, some of whom have been affected.
In Germany, one of Thomas Cook's main markets, insurance companies will help organise the response to its collapse.

UK customers will be brought home "as close as possible" to their booked return date, the Department for Transport (DfT) has said.
Customers will be on special free flights or booked on to another scheduled airline at no extra cost, with details of each flight to be posted on a dedicated website as soon as they are available.
The DfT added that a "small number" of passengers might need to book their own flight home and reclaim the costs.
The CAA is also contacting hotels accommodating Thomas Cook customers, who have booked as part of a package, to tell them that the cost of their accommodation will be covered by the government's Air Travel Trust Fund and Air Travel Organiser's Licence scheme (Atol).

What happens to staff?

Schapps said a task force would be set up to help the 9,000 UK employees who stand to lose their jobs.
Workers at some Thomas Cook shops in Britain have already met with representatives of the firm's administrators, who told them they would be made redundant.
Jobs at the tour operator's airline and in its engineering division may also go.
Some workers are being kept on, however, but there is no definite number.

What about Thomas Cook's international operations?

For now, Thomas Cook's Indian, Chinese, German and Nordic subsidiaries will continue to trade as normal.
This is because, from a legal standpoint, they are considered separate to the UK parent company and are not under the jurisdiction of the UK's Official Receiver.
They do, however, share services - such as aircraft and IT - with their parent company and will need to strike rescue deals in the coming weeks to keep trading.
