The hugely popular multi-platform programming event is back for Halloween 2022 with more than 55 hours of spine-tingling new series, specials and returning shows for the spooky season, including hair-raising ghost hunts, tales of the supernatural and show-stopping pumpkin carvings from Travel Channel, Food Network and Discovery+.
