Created by Steven Spielberg, the anthology series “Amazing Stories” premiered on NBC on September 29th, 1985, and it featured horror, sci-fi and fantasy tales directed by legends like Bob Clark, Joe Dante, Martin Scorsese, Tom Holland, Tobe Hooper, and even Spielberg himself. Before coming to an end just two years later, a total of 45 episodes aired across two seasons.
Thirty years later, we’re happy to report that more “Amazing Stories” are on the way!
As reported by Crave, “Hannibal” creator Bryan Fuller just revealed at SXSW that he and his team are currently working on scripts for the revival, which was originally announced a couple years back. Patton Oswalt, Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, and Jane Goldman will be joining Fuller in the “Amazing Stories” writers room, so there’s no shortage of talented attached to this one.
Fuller told the site:
We are working on a variety of scripts from a variety of sources, and we’ve got a lot of really great writers involved. So it feels like I’m curating the Amazing Stories magazine. Yeah, so that’s very exciting because I get to collaborate with other writers and just let them do their thing under that umbrella, which is a relief.
While we wait for more, watch one of my favorite episodes from the original run of “Amazing Stories,” titled Mummy Daddy. It was directed by William Dear (Harry and the Hendersons)!
