TNT is teaming up with director M. Night Shyamalan to bring back Tales from the Crypt to a two hour horror TV block. Shyamalan is well known for horror flicks such as The 6th sense and Signs.

Tales From the Crypt originally aired on HBO in 1996 and is based on 1950’s comic of the same name. The orgional show ran 93 episodes and was later syndicated for basic cable. Quite a nice run. The new horror block is slotted to air in Fall 2016.
I think that horror TV is making a comeback, maybe it never went anywhere. After all, Svengoolie is still on the air and has been since pretty much forever. Also, look at the success of shows like Scream Queens and American Horror Story.
