After it was announced that Saw would be returning for an eighth installment and Fast and Furious will keep going until they hit 10 movies, we round up some of the longest running film franchises in recent history.

Every movie studio dreams of producing a film franchise that goes on for years or even decades -- and quite a few have done just that. Studios see horror franchises as cash cows, and the saga of the vengeful undead child killer Freddy Krueger was especially lucrative.

Zara goes on: 'When it happened I genuinely thought that me and Sam were going to break up inevitably. I just thought we were hanging on by a tiny thread and we're going to break up.

'Then he turned around and said he wanted to make it work with me.'

Jamie says that she shouldn't make excuses, with Zara insisting she isn't, and that she is explaining why it's only coming out now.

Well, the answer to this question is dependent on what constitutes a film " franchise ". Public domain characters that can be co-opted by anyone probably aren't part of a franchise . So James Bond and Godzilla are in, Cinderella is out.

Franchise films currently reign supreme in Hollywood, but these iconic series seriously just need to end already. That said, not every franchise is as successful as those aforementioned series. Despite the persistence of studios and filmmakers, some beloved series seem to have simply run out of gas

Jamie says: 'I'm not going to be the best person in this situation ladies. I'm probably going to make things worse.

'Obviously my loyalties are with Sam, so I think I better just leave you to it.

At this, Jamie leaves the table.

The episode will air on Monday night at 9PM on E4, and will see the drama play out in full.
