Christmas is only a few days away. We should be giving you the gift of good news, but unfortunately that is not the case when it comes to the latest update on the reworked ‘Tales From the Crypt‘ series from M. Night Shyamalan and TNT, which is one of the most anticipated genre projects of 2017.
Over at Bloody-Disgusting they are reporting that a source close to the development process told the site that the new series is in trouble, if not dead and buried already. Supposedly, there is a budget issue that has caused the series to stop dead in its tracks. Now, TNT has not confirmed the rumor. So there is still hope for ‘Tales From the Crypt’, until the series is officially canceled.
The anthology series – meant to be part of TNT’s new horror block along with the new series ‘Time of Death’ and ‘Creatures‘ – got the green light back earlier this year. The series plans on making a few changes, including replacing “The Crypt Keeper’ with a new host, due to an issue with the rights.
As soon as we get word about the status of ‘Tales From the Crypt’ we will let you know. Keep your fingers crossed.
