  • Freeform's 31 Nights of Halloween begins October 1.
  • The 2019 schedule honored the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters and featured the Scream trilogy.

October is right around the corner, y'all! In other words, it's basically Halloween. Okay, not really—but it's never too soon to start preparing, because the spookiest day of the year will be here faster than you can say "trick or treat!" Between picking out the perfect outdoor Halloween decorations, putting together an unforgettable DIY costume, and building up your candy stash, there's SO much to do before October 31.

Of course, the best way to get excited for the sugar-filled holiday is by watching the best Halloween movies. Luckily, Freeform's annual roster of Halloween films—which typically includes classics like Hocus Pocus and new additions like Scared Shrekless—will be here to offer a full month of binge-watching bliss. We expect the 2020 lineup to be bigger, spookier, and more fun than ever! Check back closer to October for all the details on this year's lineup.

Here's everything you need to know about Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween:

How many movies will there be this year?

In 2018, Freeform's beloved "13 Nights of Halloween" became "31 Nights of Halloween." The network is holding itself to that high standard again this year: There will be another 31 days of classic, family-friendly films beginning on October 1.

What else can we expect to see?

The 2019 schedule added the cult-classic Scream trilogy, as well as Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. R.L. Stine's Mostly Ghostly: One Night in Doom House, Scared Shrekless, and The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror-thon made appearances as well.

And never fear, Hocus Pocus fans. The network broadcast the movie a record-breaking 27 times in 2019, and it's sure to be back in the rotation this year. We'll report back with the full schedule as soon as it becomes available!
