October 2022 TV Premieres

There are plenty of new shows, returning hits, and, of course, scary premieres coming your way for the Halloween season.

What’s better than Halloween season? Halloween TV season! We’re beyond excited for the return of Chucky (it’s even better than the movies), resigned about the end of The Walking Dead (it’s time), and utterly perplexed that Chrissy’s Court is still a thing (seriously). Here’s what to look out for—besides masked slashers—in October.
