Inversion can be a good thing – as in this year’s Halloween celebration at Freeform, where the number of nights of spookiness and fun has switched from 13 to 31!
For the entire month of October, Freeform will be featuring annual treats like Hocus Pocus and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas alongside new behind the scenes programs like Decorating Disney: Halloween Magic.
The fun begins on Monday, October 1st with ParaNorman. The complete 31 Nights of Halloween schedule follows below.
A host of stars – including Mahershala Ali, Kathy Bates, Jennifer Garner, Tony Hale, Ken Jeong, Marlee Matlin, Matthew McConaughey, Jillian Michaels, Trevor Noah, Dak Prescott, Italia Ricci, Rob Riggle, Karla Souza, Keith Urban and Reese Witherspoon – will appear on the Stand Up To Cancer Live Broadcast on September 7th.
The one-hour Stand Up To Cancer special will, once again, be broadcast by all four major networks along with a host of cable channels and networks.
Despite their sometimes contentious relationship, when push comes to shove, Esther (Esther Povitsky) and Benji (Benji Aflalo) have each other’s back… and they have nobody else to hang out with. In season two, their odd friendship continues to baffle everyone around them, as they continue to find their place in Los Angeles, juggling odd jobs, their love lives, and aspirations of social status.
Season two of Alone Together (Freeform, Wednesdays, 8/7C) will premiere on August 1st. The ten-episode season will air two episodes per night over five weeks.
To celebrate the series finale of The Middle (after nine seasons), Freeform will air The Middle Mini-Marathon on Tuesday, May 26th, from 1pm (12C) to 6pm (5C) – ten choice episodes – in preparation for the series finale on ABC (8:30/7:30C).
Freeform has ordered a pilot, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, from Josh Thomas, the creator and star of Please Like Me.
The pilot introduces Nicholas, a typical 25-year-old still living at home with his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, who is not particularly helpful in raising his siblings, one of which has autism.
Each time New Orleans suffers a cataclysmic event, there is a divine pairing to deal with it. Unfortunately, each time it is required that one will die.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson – a street kid who survives through scams and petty crimes, and a prep school kid who fears he’ll lose everything if he’s not perfect.
Freeform has released an extended trailer for Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger (below). The series’ two-hour premiere is set for Thursday, June 7th (8/7C).
I don’t talk enough about my love of Freeform (formally ABC Family) – still hate the name change, because I suck and am lazy. It’s my go to channel whenever I want to watch something that’s non-fantasy or super hero related. Well, FreeForm and Investigation Discovery. One of my obsessions last year was FreeForm’s “fantasy” drama Famous in Love.Famous in Love Season 2 returns Wednesday, April 3.
