Next Week in TV 10/2: Spooky Season is Here!

By Scott C. & DRWHO42

It is officially October, which means the ‘spooky’ season is upon us! 

Throughout the week, horror gets the spotlight with the debut of Marvel Studios’ Werewolf By Night (Disney Plus) special and the movie Hellraiser (Hulu). Chucky (SYFY/USA) returns for some season 2 killing, while The Walking Dead (AMC) also returns for a few more episodes. Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire (AMC) and Reginald The Vampire (SYFY) shows both debut this week. Overall, check the listing below to see what else is ‘scarily’ airing soon; and to see more information regarding the shows/movie mentioned above.  

Of course, Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween just got going, which will have old and recent released movies to watch throughout October.

Not a fan of horror? Well, you can try Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler series (HBO Max), Batman: The Audio Adventures (HBO Max), or go western with the debut of Walker Independence (The CW). Lastly, The Equalizer (CBS) returns this week too. To know more, check the listing below.

Quickly in some news, Hugh Jackman will be Wolverine once more in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3 (releasing September 9th, 2024). Marvel Studios’ Armor Wars will be a movie instead of a series, while actress Chloe Bennet will have a recurring role in season 3 of Dave (FXX).

Stan Yenko, Haywood’s gregarious and efficient right hand; Crystal Morales, an intuitive detective who can’t be intimidated; Andre Bentley, a trainee from an upper middle-class background; and ambitious patrol officer Brandy Quinlan, the sole volunteer to live in a local housing project as part of Haywood’s plan to bridge the gap between police and community.
