Freeform Expands 31 Nights of Halloween With New Special and Returning Favorites

At the combined Walt Disney Television Upfront presentation held at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall yesterday, Freeform made several network announcements about its upcoming programming.

Last year’s inaugural “31 Nights of Halloween” delivered Freeform’s most-watched October in three years, finishing the month as the No. 1 cable network in Women 18-34 and Females 12-34. Freeform will be doubling down on their commitment to Halloween and will be making this year’s “31 Nights of Halloween” programming stunt even bigger with the following programming additions.

After last year’s highly successful “Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Halloween Bash,” Freeform will continue the party this year with a new original special, “Halloween Extravaganza Bash” (working title) a celebration of Halloween’s biggest pop culture moments. This year, the special will honor the icons of the season as we celebrate the most beloved movies, television shows and music artists who have become synonymous with Halloween.

The network has also announced new movies joining the line-up. Marking its 25th anniversary, the classic hit “Ghostbusters” and its sequel “Ghostbusters 2,” as well as the “Scream” trilogy will be airing throughout the stunt, joining other fan favorites including “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “The Addams Family.” And not to be forgotten, Freeform will break its own record of the number of times one network can air “Hocus Pocus,” in a programming stunt with a record for 27 broadcasts of the cult classic.
