Back in 2017, executive producer Vera Miao's Two Sentence Horror Stories brought creepy online flash fiction to life on Verizon’s go90 channel, with the short film-styled series coming to CW Seed in 2018. Now, The CW is moving forward with a full-length, half-hour episodes version of the anthology series, with the latest edition of Two Sentence Horror Stories premiering on the network this August.

Featuring eight half-hour episodes, Two Sentence Horror Stories will premiere on The CW with back-to-back installments on Thursday, August 8th. As with the original iteration of Two Sentence Horror Stories, this new version of the show comes from Warner Bros.' Stage 13, with Miao once again returning to executive produce.

Contemporary tales of horror and haunting for the diverse and digital age.
