keep (one) on the edge of (one's) chair

To make one (especially a member of an audience) feel very excited, nervous, or filled with suspense while they wait to see what happens next. (Most often said of films.) It's not going to win any Oscars, but the film certainly kept us on the edge of our seats the entire time! The scandal has kept everyone on the edge of their chair waiting to see what details emerge next.
