‘Halloween’ TV Series Based On 1978 Classic Due From Miramax

If you thought Halloween Ends would be the end, Miramax has one surprise more. A Halloween TV series based on the 1978 classic that started it all that will give the franchise a creative reboot, helmed by Malek Akkad’s Trancas International Films and Miramax.

Miramax head Marc Helwig teased in an interview with Deadline that updates on the series’s development would come “very soon”, and going back to the franchise’s origins would give the series more room to expand on the Halloween universe.

While the series is still assembling its writers’ room, Helwig also shared that “the foundation of it is the original film, the John Carpenter movie, the characters of that film, and perhaps a group of characters that we haven’t really focused on that much in recent film versions or even in a number of them,” Helwig said. “It’s a creative reset completely and going back to the original film, as opposed to spinning out of any of the more recent film adaptations.”

Michael Myers will likely return to terrorize more victims in the Halloween TV series, along with sidelined characters from earlier films possibly making cameos, so there’s plenty to look forward to, and if you’re having a spooky night in, why not have a Halloween movie marathon?
