The Emmy Award-winning anthology horror series “Tales from the Crypt” returns to network television starting Friday, October 5, when FEARnet debuts TV versions of the groundbreaking program on its linear channel and presents original episodes on its VOD platform.

Amazingly enough, this marks the first time that “Tales from the Crypt” can be seen on network TV since 2004, when it was previously syndicated.

The “Tales from the Crypt” episodes will premiere Friday nights in a two-hour block on FEARnet from 10 p.m. to Midnight ET/7 p.m. to 9 p.m. PT and will be re-aired on Mondays in the same time period. The 93 produced episodes will play in order, beginning with season one and continuing through its seventh, and final, season.

The original cable versions of “Tales from the Crypt,” running from 1989 to 1996, are now available for the first time since their first airing, for FEARnet’s VOD platform. Starting Wednesday, October 10, the premiere episodes will launch on FEARnet’s VOD platform, which is currently available in more than 26 million homes. On FEARnet’s industry-leading VOD Channel, the episodes will be presented in their original unedited format. Four episodes will be added to the VOD library every Wednesday, ensuring that there will always be something new and fresh for viewers to watch. Each episode will remain in the VOD library for six weeks.

In the month of October alone, FEARnet viewers will be treated to timeless episodes like “And All Through the House,” based on the classic “Vault of Horror” entry about a maniacal Santa Clause terrorizing a murderous housewife on Christmas Eve (Oct. 5);“Collection Completed,” directed by Mary Lambert (“Pet Sematary”) and starring M. Emmet Walsh (“Blood Simple”) as a recent retiree with a sinister plan for his wife’s adopted pets (Oct. 12); “The Sacrifice,” starring Michael Ironside (“Scanners”), about a murderous man being blackmailed for his deeds (Oct. 26); and “Four-Sided Triangle,” directed by Tom Holland (“Fright Night”) and starring Patricia Arquette (“Medium”) as a troubled woman in love with a scarecrow (Oct. 26).

Additionally, FEARnet fans will be able to access all-new “Crypt” content on FEARnet.com. These extras will include a gallery of “Tales from the Crypt” comic book covers that were used on the show; exclusive video clips such as this one* when FEARnet filmed the opening of the “Tales” storage vault; and “Cryptkeeper-isms,” a collection of classic one-liners from the Master of Scaremonies, himself.
