The Outer Limits (1995 – 2002) – Horror TV Shows We Miss

It’s time for a new episode of our Horror TV Shows We Miss video series, and in this one we’re longing for the return of The Outer Limits – with a specific focus on the revival series that ran for seven seasons, from 1995 to 2002. To find out what we had to say about The Outer Limits, check out the video embedded above!

Created by Leslie Stevens, the first run of The Outer Limits lasted just two seasons (49 episodes), running on ABC from 1963 to ’65. Airing on Showtime and then the Sci-Fi Channel, the revival series was

an anthology of distinct story episodes, sometimes with a plot twist at the end. The revival series maintained an anthology format, but occasionally featured recurring story arcs that were then tied together during season-finale clip shows.

There were 152 episodes of the revival series over the course of its seven seasons.

The Horror TV Shows We Miss series is all about taking a

nostalgic look back at the genre series that marked us while growing up and that helped shape our love of horror today.

This episode was Written and Narrated by Niki Minter, Edited by Adam Walton, Produced by John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
