The Crypt Keeper will continue to R.I.P. due to rights issues according to TNT and TBS president Kevin Reilly.
In a recent Interview with Deadline Reilly said that the network had to pull the plug on the Tales from the Crypt reboot with filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan
“That one got really caught up in a complete legal mess unfortunately with a very complicated underlying rights structure,” Reilly told Deadline. “We lost so much time, so I said, ‘Look, I’m not waiting around four years for this thing’. Maybe that will come back around but in the meantime, Ridley Scott had come up, who has so much creative enthusiasm.”
Although all of us here at When the freaks come out were excited for the reboot, we weren't much on the idea of a new Crypt Keeper.
