Elvira Lives! ***Updated***

This is big news if you grew up watching the Hostess with the Most-est during the 80s.  New episodes of Elvira’s Movie Macabre will debut in syndication during the week of September 25.  The first episode will feature George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. 

Elvira’s return to television is really a surprise.  The character was on television, hosted Thriller Video tapes, appeared in beer commercials, had two comic book lines, and starred in two films.  Despite all of the success, Elvira vanished from pop culture years ago and Cassandra Peterson seemed to have retired as Elvira back in 2007 after finding a successor.  Now that Peterson has reclaimed Elvira, fans will be able to watch the last great horror host with their children.

The new Movie Macabre will be carried on station KDOC in L.A., WCIU in Chicago, WATL/WXIA in Atalanta, and WBGN in Pittsburg.  It can also be seen on This! Television.  More towns and stations are supposed to be announced before the Sept. 25th, so stay tuned.

  1. This is great news! I was too young to remember when Elvira was on movie macabre,but I did enjoy the dvds I’m really excited. I just have one question what channel is this going to be on?

  2. This is a DREAM (or NIGHTMARE) come true! She’s my grrrrrrrrl! What station will be showing these???

  3. Elvira is my all-time favorite Horror-Host. I always loved the contrast of this character who looked like a Hammer Vamp, but was really just a Valley-Girl (albeit a very tough one). Like Alice Cooper, she’s an enduring icon of the genre that hasn’t lost a step, even after all these years.

  4. Didn’t they mention showing FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN in one of the future episodes? Because that’s a good film really.

  5. This news is so exciting I could stand on my head and eat a bug.

  6. Where can we find channel listings?

  7. 2ndsuitor, I found the listings under the headlines on Cassandra Peterson’s imdb page. The new listings are going to be released on Elvira’s official website.
