2016 was a wild ride in Hollywood. While some celebrities saw their careers skyrocket to new levels, others hit a bit of a rut, and while they may have been talked about, it wasn’t necessarily for the work in their industry. Luckily for many of those stars the year isn’t even over yet and things are already looking promising for their careers in 2017, and fans can’t wait to see what is next for them. From new albums, and major roles in big movies and anticipated TV shows, here are 11 popular celebrities who are poised for a career comeback in 2017:

11. Mandy Moore

Back in the ’90s and early 2000s, Mandy Moore was one of the most buzzed about young stars in the industry. Not only did she have a successful music career, but she then also hit it big with acting. From 2001 to 2007, Moore had a string of popular films such as A Walk to Remember, How to Deal, Chasing Liberty and Because I Said So, but then went pretty quiet in her career. Since, Moore has been most discussed because of her marriage and then divorce from singer Ryan Adams, she made a huge comeback this year starring as Rebecca in NBC’s huge new series This Is Us. While her This Is Us success started in 2016, it has propelled her for an even bigger comeback in 2017 as she has been working on a new album for quite some time and it should be released in 2017. Moore will also reprise her voice role as Rapunzel in the TV series for Tangled.

Actress Emma Watson has by no means faded away from the public eye and has made huge strides in her work with the United Nations, but in terms of her acting career fans think it is about time she makes a big move, and she has done just that. After having absolutely no new films released in 2016, Watson can look forward to a huge resurgence in her film career starring as Belle in the highly anticipated live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. She also already has another film in post-production that is slated for a 2017 release called The Circle which Watson stars in alongside other huge names such as Karen Gillan, Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, and John Boyega.
