The CW has plans to bring George A. Romero's 1980's horror series Tales from the Darkside back to the small screen.

The original series was an anthology horror TV series released in 1984. It was in the same vein as shows such as Amazing Stories, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits or Tales from the Crypt. Each episode was an individual short story that ended with a plot twist. The series' episodes spanned the genres of horror, science fiction, and fantasy, and some episodes featured elements of black comedy or more lighthearted themes.

This reboot will keep the original show's half-hour format. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will produce and Joe Hill is attached to write.
