In late 2016, after Halloween Horror Month '16, it was announced that a 9 hour version of the block will air in the United States, and European countries.

Halloween Horror Month

Every October since 2014, horror was shown on the special Saturday/Sunday block.

For the 2017 edition, an original series will air during the regular AniWeekend block, but the "horror" block will start at midnight so it wouldn't interfere with new episodes.
