M. Night Shyamalan has been working with TNT on a reboot of Tales From the Crypt and, today, the series officially received a 10-episode order. According to The Wrap, the anthology series will be "hosted by a newly reinvented Crypt Keeper" and is part of a multi-series "horror block" that Shyamalan is overseeing.

Other shows that are part of this horror block on TNT include Time of Death and Creatures. Here's the description for Time of Death:

"'Time of Death' is planned as an anthology series with each season taking viewers hour-by-hour through a single 'long night of hell.' The first season will follow a murderous psychopath who returns to his Midwestern hometown during the annual county fair to exact revenge on a community he believes destroyed his life."

Meanwhile, Creatures looks to be dipping into the realm of Creepypasta:

"'Creatures' is a psychological thriller that tells the tale of two former best friends who, at 12 years old, tried to cut out their classmate’s heart as a sacrifice to an Internet bogeyman they invented called Mr. Gorgi. Fifteen years later, the two young women have been released from a psychiatric institute into their small Alaskan town, but it’s not long before they start to feel the alluring and terrifying presence of Mr. Gorgi once again."

While we previously heard that the new Tales From the Crypt series was targeting a release in late 2016, the latest news mentioned a premiere in 2017 for all three shows that will presumably premiere at the same time. Time of Death is a seasonal anthology series, similar to American Horror Story, but we're still waiting on clarification on the Tales From the Crypt format, as we've previously heard both seasonal and episodic anthology formats were being discussed. We'll keep Daily Dead readers posted as more details become available.
