Recently it was announced that M Night Shyamalan signed a deal to bring back the classic HBO cult show, Tales From the Crypt to TNT as part of their new upcoming "Horror themed" block.

Details thus far have been scarce aside from stating that Shyamalan would be the driving force behind it similar to Joel Silver, Robert Zemeckis, and Richard Donner with the original show. Rumored details have come out recently that not only would John Kassir (the voice actor for the Cryptkeeper) not be brought back, but neither would the Cryptkeeper itself.

Further details indicate the format would neither match the original show, movies, or even the comic format and be more similar to American Horror Story (1 story told across the entire season)

These are issues that must be rectified as the show with these details will already have a hard enough time appealing to long term fans to come back and enjoy. Yes American Horror Story continues to be a ratings juggernaut for FX/FXX, but reruns of the original show on outlets like Chiller and Syfy also pull in good ratings.

Kevin Reilly and M. Night Shyamalan should strive for something new but also something that doesn't alienate it's core audience. Licensing The Cryptkeeper can obviously can be an issue especially with the outlet being HBO, but these are issues that can and should be worked out.

Please bring back one of our beloved shows correctly
