The CW is known to produce hits, and they’re cooking up an anthology series that has a 99.9 percent chance of becoming another hit.

George A. Romero’s anthology TV series, “Tales From the Darkside,” will be revived for the new generation of TV viewers. If you know “The Twilight Zone” during the late 1950s, which was another hit that has been revived during the 1980s and 2000s, “Tales from the Darkside” was its competition during the ’80s. However, after its run, it has never been revived since then.

“Tales from the Darkside” hails from Joe Hill.  Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will executive produce via the “Sleepy Hollow” duo’s overall deal with CBS Television Studios. Mitchell Galin (“The Stand”) and K/O Paper Products president Heather Kadin and Jerry Golod are also on board to executive produce.

With Hill behind it, we are in for a fantasy-thriller this year that will definitely take us to a darker side. Moreover, with The CW’s reputation for producing hit TV series and committing to every TV series that they order, it seems like this reboot will definitely be a change from their roster of superhero and supernatural TV series that we’ve been seeing in the past years, and this sure would be a great competition against FX’s “American Horror Story.”

The CW has also ordered two new TV shows “Cordon” and “Dead People.”

“Tales From the Darkside” will air this fall.
