*Updated on 10/25 with new listings.* Happy Halloween season, dear readers! Now that this year’s season of scares is officially upon us, it’s time once again for Daily Dead’s Annual Halloween Horrors TV Viewing Guide. Like we do every year, we want to make things easier on all you genre fans out there with our rundown of all the horror headed to the small screen starting today, September 27th, and continuing through Sunday, October 31st. We’ve put together a daily list of what you can expect to see on the regular broadcast channels and network cable, and we’ll be adding in all the horror hitting the premium channels once we officially get into the month of October.

And as usual, we’ll be updating our 2021 Halloween Horrors TV Viewing Guide every Monday, since not every channel has revealed their full lineups for the month of October just yet, so be sure to check back here every week to get an updated look at all the fright-filled fun hitting the airwaves over the next few weeks. And with all the various Halloween-themed specials and tons of horror movies set to take over a variety of channels this October, there is plenty to keep you busy as you get ready to celebrate Halloween.

So, read on for all the gory details from this year’s Annual Halloween Horrors TV Viewing Guide!
