Can you believe that it will be OCTOBER next week? That means it’s officially spooky season and it is time to talk about everything HALLOWEEN.

I don’t know if you follow the 31 Nights of Halloween Facebook page but I have notifications turned ON and as soon as they post the October lineup, that means it is time to start pulling out the Halloween decorations and bring on the Apple Cider.

From Freeform

It’s spooky season, witches! Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween” programming event returns for its 25th anniversary with a spellbinding lineup of Halloween favorites that will keep viewers enchanted all month long. From Oct. 1 to Oct. 31, hair-raising entertainment awaits with a collection of Halloween films ranging from timeless classics to contemporary gems. Reconnect with beloved movies, including “Hocus Pocus,” “Monsters, Inc.,” the 30th anniversary of “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Cruella” and “The Addams Family,” and cozy up to the Freeform premieres of “Encanto,” “ZOMBIES” and “ZOMBIES 2.” Last year’s “31 Nights of Halloween” programming levitated Freeform to the No. 1 ranking among primetime cable networks in entertainment across Adults 18-34, Women 18-34 and Women 18-49 (excludes news and sports).*

“Over the last 25 years, our viewers have grown up with ’31 Nights of Halloween’ as a time-honored tradition to watch Halloween favorites and connect with their loved ones during this special time of the season,” said Simran Sethi, EVP of Programming and Content Strategy, ABC Entertainment and Freeform. “There’s something sentimental about these holiday classics that brings a real sense of comfort and nostalgia to people, and we look forward to celebrating this anniversary with another spirited lineup.” So, grab your broomsticks, sweep your schedules, light your black-flame candle, and gather around the couch for a month’s worth of opportunity to binge all of these devilishly delightful films. It’s Halloween time!”

Fire up the DVR, start planning your movie snacks, and break out the Halloween jammies. It’s time to binge your favorites and ours! Happy Halloween!
