New Tales from the Crypt Series in Development

Fifteen years after leaving the airwaves, Tales from the Crypt is set to return to the small screen. Deadline reports that "Eureka" co-creator Andrew Cosby is developing a new take on the classic EC comic adventure, and that the plan is to center the storyline arcs around the characters from the comic rather than the anthology version we remembered from the HBO series.

"It will be an ongoing series that uses characters from the comic books in a more modern context," Cosby said. "It's all about continually elevating the genre, for both existing fans of the source material and mainstream audiences."

Producers will start shopping this new "Crypt" series to both broadcast networks and cable channels. If both of those fall through, there's also been talk about full financing the production in-house and then selling it to potential television providers.


Thanks to Calibur454 for the submission.

This is really good news... whatever you do, keep the old theme music!

yea i agree with you both (zipahead and Supes4ever- its not that often a good horror show comes along. The walking dead is the only decent one out right now. Id love to see more GOOD horror on the tube- I loved a lot of the old tv episodes though i didnt care for the movies to much.

Staying close to the source material and making it modern could be a chalenge though depending on how they do it.

Just keep the theme music, and bring back the crypt keeper, and I'm happy.

 keep the theme music and the opening

 i love the idea of a continued storyline, but it may make hard for a CryptKeeper Intro. that was one of the things that made TFTC unique. and come on, lets just face it, those GHOULISH one liners of the CryptKeeper made the beginning and end of the show worth it all. regardless of it all, i will be ready for this new show. Hold on to your heads BOILS and GHOULS, this is the FRIGHT time to return....
