Hulu is preparing to launch a new and original horror series for this Halloween. Get ready to celebrate the freaks with “Freakish”.
With New York Comic Con right around the corner, we’ve been getting e-mails in regards to several fun new movies, television series, and comics. But for every bit of super hero related news that comes our way, there’s something horror and monsters centric we learn of that’s too appealing to let run off into the night. In this case, popular video subscription on demand service Hulu reached out to us in regards to an exciting new original program set to debut this October. Freakish, an original series set to premiere on Monday, October 10th, is one of Hulu’s latest offers and is one many horror and Universal Monsters fans will not want to miss.
The teen, horror series features Liza Koshy, Meghan Rienks, Hayes Grier and Melvin Gregg as well as traditional actors such as Leo Howard (“Kickin’ It”) and Aislinn Paul (“Heroes Reborn”); Freakish will be the services first Halloween themed series and will kick off #FreakWeek, which will see Tumblr air two new episodes from AwesomenessTV. Viewers and fans could find Freakish on its Tumblr page and watch the new episodes for a limited time during #FreakWeek.
#FreakWeek is a first-of-its-kind event that will allow all fans and viewers to preview and discover Freakish for free on Tumblr (for a limited time), or stream the entire series on Hulu anytime.
Hulu and Tumblr are two of the leading platforms that have steadily found increasing new ways to deliver fun content and engage with fans in a unique way. #FreakWeek sounds like an exciting opportunity for fans to not only discover a frighteningly new series, but to also begin getting into the Halloween spirit. So if steady doses of the classic Universal Monsters films aren’t enough for you, we strongly recommend checking out Freakish.
Also, did we forget to mention that The Walking Dead’s Chad L. Coleman stars on the show, as well?!
Freakish premiers Monday, October 10th on Hulu with all ten episodes available for streaming.
