EC Comics-inspired tales will be making a comeback on the small screen, as M. Night Shyamalan and TNT are teaming up to reboot Tales From the Crypt as part of the network's new horror programming block.

Deadline reports that filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, The Visit) will oversee a weekly two-hour segment of horror and suspense programming on TNT that will be centered around a rebooted Tales From the Crypt. 

This new version of Tales From the Crypt is scheduled to premiere this fall and will be executive produced by Shyamalan. The stories told within the series will be "based on the original EC Comics by William Gaines as well as new stories."

Hosted by the skeletal Crpytkeeper, Tales From the Crypt originally aired on HBO from 1989–1996. Its horror anthology format featured many macabre tales from talented filmmakers such as Robert Zemeckis, William Friedkin, Tobe Hooper, and more. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates on the return of the cackling Cryptkeeper.
