We don’t know about you, but one of our favorite annual fall activities is throwing on some pajamas (preferably of the Halloween-themed variety), making a fall snack, and settling in to watch some seasonally appropriate TV!

As we know many will not be able to partake in some of the other traditional Halloween activities this year, we have created the ultimate list of TV shows inspired by Salem to bring some October fun to your door! Below you will find a list of television shows, ranging from the 1960s to 2018 that feature Salem, Massachusetts. While several of these shows do require a streaming service, we have also included links to full episodes that are available for free online! Also included are two of our staff’s favorite October snacks. Give them a try and get a little taste of October, wherever you may be! While it may not be a typical year, we hope this brings a splash of Salem to your home!
