The way we see it, it's never too early to start thinking about Halloween. Between picking out the perfect porch decor and building up your candy stash, you're bound to need at least a few months of prep time—and let's not even get started on costume planning.
This year, you've got yet another reason to start dreaming about your favorite sugar-filled holiday: Freeform just announced its roster of Halloween movies, and it's shaping up to be bigger, spookier, and more fun than ever. Here's everything you need to know:
How many movies will there be this year?
Last year, Freeform's beloved "13 Nights of Halloween" became "31 Nights of Halloween" with the addition of 18 new movies. They're holding themselves to that high standard again this year: You can expect to see another 31 days of classic, family-friendly films come October.
What else can we expect to see?
According to TVGuide, Freeform is one-upping last year's jam-packed schedule with the addition of the cult-classic Scream trilogy, as well as Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. They're also airing a new "Halloween Extravaganza Bash," which will walk viewers down memory lane and treat them to some of the biggest Halloween moments in pop culture history. And never fear, Hocus Pocus fans: The network plans to broadcast the movie a record-breaking 27 times this year.
When will "31 Nights of Halloween" start?
The first movie will air on October 1 and the event will continue through October 31. We'll share the full schedule as soon as we have more info, so be sure to check back to this page!
