10 Best Upcoming Or Recently Released TV Series For Halloween 2022 – Screen Rant

From modernized vampires to spine-chilling murderers, there’s a spooky TV show for every horror-thirsty viewer this Halloween season.
The latest Netflix true-crime series Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story received a lot of praise from the audience and set the tone for this year’s Halloween TV binge-watching season. With the first signs of chill in the air, everyone starts craving something mysterious to watch at home.
While fan-favorite The Vampire Diaries, The Haunting of Hill House, or Black Mirror are classic choices for a spooky TV night, it’s crucial to keep up with all the recent and upcoming streaming releases, which are especially exciting this Halloween season. The nights will be dark and full of terrors with a thriller story from Ryan Murphy, Guillermo del Toro’s Netflix horror anthology, and other latest 2022 TV series.
The new Peacock TV show is based on the popular young-adult series of fantasy novels by Richelle Mead. The story focuses on a close friendship between a teenager Dhamir Rose Hathaway (Sisi Stringer) and a Moroi princess Lissa Dragomir (Daniela Nieves), and their adventures and romantic pursuits at St. Vladimir's Academy.

It’s often a hit or miss when it comes to book adaptations, especially the ones that have a very dedicated following like Vampire Academy novels. Luckily, The Vampire Diaries creator and actor, Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre, know their way around supernatural stories, and will hopefully keep the original source material as their guiding star.
The talented Ryan Murphy has a unique awareness of the kind of stories that have a viral interest in current society. The popularity of his latest show once again proves that people have a morbid curiosity about serial killers.
With a brilliant performance, actor Evan Peters that is best known for his roles in American Horror Story takes the viewer inside the mind of Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, who committed a series of brutal murders between 1978 and 1991. But what’s unique about this particular show is that creators Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan make sure to focus not only on the serial killer but also on the victims of the crimes, whose experience is accompanied on screen with an unsettling score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
Vampires never fail to attract big audiences, but it's the engaging storytelling that makes Interview with the Vampire a unique and promising new TV series. The first two episodes have an elevated sense of immortal freedom with beautiful direction by Alan Taylor.

A modernized take on Anne Rice’s series of novels The Vampire Chronicles tells the story of Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson) who is recoding an interview with journalist Daniel Molly (Eric Bogosian) about his life’s many adventures and tragedies after being turned into a vampire by his lover Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid) at the beginning of 20th century.
Vampire comedies are an absolute hoot to watch as they usually subvert the standard expectations of how those creatures must behave or what they must look like. Reginald the Vampire offers to forget the days of exclusively flawless vamps with sharp cheekbones, and welcome the endearing Reginald, who tries to find his place in the new society.
And if someone is not sold on the fun original premise of the new Syfy series, the lead character Reginald is portrayed by Peter Parker's best friend, the incredibly funny actor Jacob Batalon. His natural charisma and boundless charm keep the show’s tone consistent and the viewing entertaining.
Telling scary stories in the dark is some people’s worst idea of having fun, but for eight terminally ill kids of Rotterdam hospice it’s the only way to bring excitement to their shortened lives. Of course, things get out of hand when teenagers start messing with powers from beyond.
Mike Flanagan is back at it again with a new horror TV series on Netflix. Many viewers have still yet to recover from the traumatic episodes of The Haunting of Hill House, but missing this atmospheric retro horror story is clearly not an option.
It’s unlikely that fans of true crime and horror films think moving to the suburbs is a good idea, especially after shows like A Friend of The Family which is based on real events. In the 1970s, the Brobergs family found out that their charming neighbor Robert Berchtold had managed to kidnap their daughter Jan twice in two years.
The show created by Nick Antosca is a perfect bite-sized scary miniseries for a late October weekend. What’s fascinating is that the series was produced by Jan Broberg herself, a rare case of a child being able to cope with trauma after such an event and not blaming her parents for what happened.
Vampires are incredibly tragic creatures by default, but children vampires have truly heartbreaking fates. Let The Right One In tells the story of a 12-year-old vampire named Eleanor (Madison Taylor Baez) and her human father Mike (Demián Bichir), who has been keeping his daughter alive with human blood and a strict regime for a decade, and is desperate to find a cure.
The title is familiar to a lot of horror fans because of the original Swedish film and its 2010 adaptation Let Me In, both of which received critical acclaim. A series adaptation found its place on Showtime, which is famous for its thriller TV series like Dexter and the recent Yellowjackets.
A couple with children moves into a new house, which is the beginning of the end for every happy family story in horror movies. In the new Netflix detective thriller, the family in search of peace is being harassed by disturbing messages and threatening letters under the name "The Watcher".

The limited series is based on a frightening true story and created by forever-working Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan. The quality of acting can be ruled out of questioning as The Watcher features an amazing cast with Naomi Watts, Bobby Cannavale, Mia Farrow, and recent Emmy Award Winner Jennifer Coolidge.
The week leading up to Halloween will be an exciting time as Netflix plans to release a horror anthology series produced by Guillermo del Toro. What’s curious is that the episodes will not be available for a straight binge-watch, but will come out in increments of two stories per day over four nights.
If anyone can bring something new to the genre of horror, it’s Guillermo del Toro. Episodes will feature the directorial work del Toto himself, but also Jennifer Kent (The Babadook), Panos Cosmatos (Mandy), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), and Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Comes Walks Home Alone at Night).
A series of unfortunate events happen during the “devil’s hour” between 3 am and 4 am. The main character Lucy Chambers (Jessica Raine) wakes up every night at exactly 3:33 am to the realization that things are not the same as they used to be.
Playing with time is never a good idea, but it makes for an engaging detective thriller story, especially in the hands of executive producer Steven Moffat, who knows a thing or two about time manipulation from working on Doctor Who.
