Ah, there you are! As a fan of Tales From the Crypt you've probably got mixed feelings about the upcoming remake of the series from director M. Night Shyamalan. However, with a thrilling trailer and the promise of seeing our old pal the Crypt Keeper again, this is one reboot that fans can look forward to in 2017.

Keep up to date with all things on this page, which will be updated with all the latest details.

Tales From The Crypt News & rumors

All of the Tales From The Crypt news and rumors are here! First up, a word from director M. Night Shyamalan on the tone of the 2017 reboot.

'Tales From the Crypt' was always kind of a forbidden fruit from my childhood. This dark, ironic tone is THE thing that draws me to this source material. You can do drama, humor... you're gonna sit with us the whole evening, a destination for the highest level of storytelling. The Crypt Keeper is definitely going to be a part of the evening, someone that draws us in like the dark Walt Disney. This is like candy for me.

The new Tales From The Crypt will be a 10-episode season, staying true to the episode anthology format of the original show.

Tales From The Crypt premiere date

An unspecified Tales From The Crypt premiere date will be announced at some point in 2017. The show is created by TNT (Turner Network Television).

Tales From The Crypt trailer

TNT dropped the first Tales From The Crypt trailer and it's encouraging to see how scary, fun and fresh it looks. Taking the original series as guidance — "Some tales won't get out of your head!" — the trailer begins with a janitor reminiscent of Wes Craven's "Fred the Janitor" cameo in Scream being stalked by a frightening figure...

After the trailer, there's a nice featurette with director M. Night Shyamalan explaining what he wants from the reboot.

Tales From The Crypt cast

There is no news yet about any cast members for the Tales From the Crypt cast, but we have heard that classic voice artist John Kassir will return to provide the dulcet tones of our favorite putrified body, the Crypt Keeper.

Tales From The Crypt characters

All we know of the Tales From The Crypt characters is what we've seen in the trailer, and what Shyamalan has told us. Don't worry, the Crypt Keeper will return, albeit slightly differently. Director M. Night Shyamalan tweeted that the Crypt Keeper will return.

We'll be getting a Crypt Keeper but he'll be a different model. ... Ask Crypty himself and he'd probably say something like:

"I look into the future, my darlings... and for you, I see something... grotesque. It will sicken and disgust you! It's me!"

Watch Tales From The Crypt online

It may be possible to watch Tales From The Crypt online once the series begins to air. The show will initially be broadcast by TNT.
