The annual countdown to Halloween begins on Oct. 1. No network knows this better than Freeform, which has aired wall-to-wall themed content counting down to the spookiest of holidays since 1998. Freeform's 13 Nights of Halloween schedule has officially been announced, and this year's programming might be the best in its 19-year history. Whether you're an early bird or a night owl, Freeform's 2017 Halloween line-up has you covered; most days, they'll run holiday-adjacent specials from 7 a.m. until 12 a.m. Also, before you ask: Yes, of course Hocus Pocus is included on the schedule. In fact, Freeform will show Hocus Pocus on a loop on Halloween.

The best part about 13 Nights of Halloween is seeing exactly what kinds of movies count as Halloween-y. Obviously, you need your Tim Burton fix, and The Addams Family lives every day like it's Halloween, so their presence on the list is no surprise. Briefly skim the rest of the line-up, however, and you might be surprised by some of the newer additions. Does Twilight count as a Halloween franchise, just because it involves vampires and werewolves? Is Matilda appreciated as a true Halloween classic? Isn't Sleepy Hollow a little advanced for the Freeform audience? Who cares? It's Halloween.  

So, here's the Freeform 2017 Halloween Schedule. Enjoy it.

Watching a network go all-out, in some form, would put any viewer in the Halloween spirit. So, this year, lean in. Watch as much of the Freeform 2017 Halloween schedule as you want. Or don't want. Celebrate in the way that feels right. But just know that if a daily viewing of Addams Family Values is what says Halloween to you, this is a judgment-free zone.
