TNT Gears Up for Halloween with 24-Hour Supernatural Marathon,
Beginning Saturday, Oct. 27, at Noon


Things will be going bump in the night…and day…when TNT presents a 24-hour marathon of the popular horror series Supernatural. Beginning Saturday, Oct. 27, at noon (ET/PT), TNT will tingle viewers' spines with 24 of the scariest, creepiest episodes from the show's first six seasons. A complete schedule of the marathon is included below.

Supernatural follows the thrilling and terrifying journey of brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), who lost their mother 27 years ago to a mysterious and demonic Supernatural force. Subsequently, their father John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) raised them to be soldiers. He taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America…and he taught them how to kill it.

Sam and Dean have spent the last seven years battling the things that go bump in the night. Over the years, with the help of fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins) and the King of Hell, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard), the Winchesters have straddled the line between good and evil.

Supernatural is produced by Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with < /span>McG (Charlie’s Angels, The O.C.), Robert Singer (Midnight Caller), Jeremy Carver (Being Human), Phil Sgriccia  (Revolution) and Adam Glass (Cold Case) serving as executive producers.

    AWESOME news but um, why such huge font?

  • Toni

    This is great for Supernatural but TNT didn’t choose the best. There were far scarier episodes to use than a few of their choices. I’ll be watching regardless ;-)

  • Guardian Owl

    That’s weird, they start with season 4, go chronologically until season 6, then starting at 1 AM jump back to the pilot and continue on through season 3. Makes you wonder if someone screwed up the order of the list because that makes no sense.

  • Chikamatsu’s 10 Puppets

    While not even remotely scary, TNT had me at the selection of Mystery Spot. One of the series’ best episodes. Bar none.

  • Toni

    The Pilot, Bloody Mary, Hell House, Asylum, Faith, Something Wicked, Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things, Crossroad Blues, Croatoan, Houses of the Holy, Heart, Fresh Blood, Dream a Little Dream of Me, It’s the Great Pumpkin Sam Winchester, Death Takes a Holiday, On the Head of a Pin, The End, Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid, Dark Side of the Moon
    Maybe add in The Monster At the End of This Book, I Believe the Children Are Our Future and promo the marathon with Jen Titus’s O’Death. That’s spooky good Halloween fun.

  • Christian

    Season 4 is the most represented. Was that the best season?

  • DryedMangoez

    Great to see Supernatural doing well on TNT.

  • Jamie

    Asylum was the scariest of Supernatural, IMO.

    Bloody Mary & the one with the scarecrow follow close.

  • rehabber

    The scariest ep of SPN is Asylum, after watching it many times I still get goosebumps and curl up in my chair. SPN is my favorite series on TV.

  • Linda

    @Christian
    No, it was the worst.

  • Toni

    While S4 wasn’t my favorite, it wasn’t the worst. I am unfailingly loyal to this show but I found the show to be lacking during Sera’s tenure. She changed my show and not in a subtle way. Even the Episode titles were jokes. I love her individual episodes but her in charge, not so much. She took away simple things that made the boys who they were. Material things that meant a lot in the lore of SPN. The history of the boys. The amulet, Baby. She killed Cas and Bobby, took away the boys “safe place” by destroying Bobby’s junkyard. The list goes on. You don’t have to take anything away to make great drama. She seemed more interested in telling funny meta stories than telling a story about two brothers making their way across country carrying on the family business.

  • david

  • buddhaboi
