TALES FROM THE CRYPT is making a comeback. 

The horror anthology series is returning to the television airwaves, acting as the centerpiece of a horror block of programming that will be launching on TNT in 2017.

First announced back in January, TALES FROM THE CRYPT has received a 10-episode order for its first new season under the watchful eye of M. Night Shyamalan, who is producing. In addition, a "newly reinvented" Crypt Keeper will be a part of the show to introduce the individual stories that make up each respective episode. 

It's been 20 years since the very last TALES FROM THE CRYPT episode ran on HBO, bringing a run of seven seasons and 93 episodes to a close. It feels nice to have this old friend getting ready to pay a visit to our televisions on a weekly basis again.

Nope. I love the idea of a horror block and a new anthology show, but not on TNT. Give it to FX. They can create a block consisting of this, another series (maybe The Strain, maybe something new) and American Horror Story.

TNT is basically the christian schoolboy tv network.

I still don't get TNT, they are one of the last channels to have censorship and bland shows that push no boundaries. I don't see Tales From The Crypt having any blood, deaths or swearing (not a damn, crap, shit or other to be heard). It will be 10 episodes of shows with simple twists, simple stories and simple characters for simple people who still watch anything on that channel.

Nope!

No John Kassir as cryptkeeper, heavily censored TNT, and M Knight Shymalan = Shit!

Dumb

So Dumb. I'm all for bringing it back, but TNT???? The original was rated R, and had [link] violence. I'm sure they can still fit in the violence, but without the others it will truly be lacking. And reinventing the Crypt Keeper??? He doesn't need a reinvention. He was perfect. Prepare to be disappointed.

The Crypt Keeper was the first character that really, truly scared the shit out of me. I think it's because he looked just like my great grandmother.
