The iconic horror anthology series Tales From the Crypt is coming back to TV from one of our most polarizing filmmakers. M. Night Shyamalan will produce the reboot as part of new horror-centric block that’s coming to TNT.

Shyamalan will curate the two-hour block’s combination of long and short form programming, with Tales from the Crypt being the centerpiece.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with Kevin Reilly, Sarah Aubrey and the entire TNT team in this unique endeavor,” Shyamalan said in a news release. “To be part of such a beloved brand like Tales From the Crypt, something I grew up watching, and to also have the chance to push the boundaries of genre television as a whole, is an inspiring opportunity that I can’t wait to dive into.” Other shows are expected to be announced in the coming months.


Though it began in other mediums, Tales from the Crypt became a household name when it ran from 1989 through 1996 on HBO. It had legions of fans who not only loved the show’s host, the Cryptkeeper, but its twisted tales of gore and fear.
