Famed horror and supernatural director M. Night Shyamalan is bringing Tales from the Crypt back to television!
The show will be part of a new “horror block” on TNT, which will debut in the Fall of 2016.
“This is a new genre for us in our series efforts and a great chance to partner with M. Night Shyamalan, whose blockbuster hit ‘The Visit’ reminded movie audiences and critics this past summer that he truly is a master of horror,” Sarah Aubrey, TNT’s EVP of original programming, said in a statement (via Variety). “This two-hour horror block demonstrates not only TNT’s commitment to working with today’s top talents, but also our strategy to stand out in today’s marketplace by challenging the conventional rules of programming and scheduling.”
Tales from the Crypt originally aired on HBO for seven seasons starting in 1989.
