How to Watch Every Episode of ‘The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror

Gather your family on your pink living room sofa, it is once again the best time of the year. No, we don’t mean Halloween, or “spooky season”, we mean the release of the next installment of The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror. This annual television event, which is highly anticipated by the show’s dedicated, multi-generational fans, has been a regular part of the series for the past 33 seasons. For years the writers have parodied horror media with their classic comedy style, poking fun at short stories and the top film releases of the year at the expense of America’s favorite cartoon family who endures significantly more violence in the annual horror-themed releases. With the 34th edition of the series’ spooky installments, The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror is doing something that the series has never done before this year, upping the ante in a way that their fans will surely appreciate.

What Makes 2022’s Treehouse of Horror Different?
Hold onto your hat, son. This year, The Simpsons franchise is making its audiences’ nightmares come true with a bonus Treehouse of Horror episode. In addition to the classic horror anthology-style episode, an entire second episode will devote its 30-minute runtime to a singular movie parody. No longer constrained by the six-minute minisode format, this change will give the writers an opportunity to dive deep into a fictional world with its own rich, terrifying story.

What Will 2022’s Treehouse of Horror Episodes be About?
Much of what the anthology episode will entail is still a mystery, though executive producer Matt Selman let attendees of his panel at San Diego Comic Con know that Caroline Omine has written a segment inspired by the Death Note anime series. Selman stated that in this portion of the episode, The Simpsons will go “full anime”, and therefore the animation will be handled by a completely different studio. Additionally, Selman has said that they will break a rule that they have never before broken in the series. Shrouded in secrecy, audiences will have to wait and see what more lurks in the anthology episode.

As for the bonus, singular movie-dedicated episode, fans of Krusty the Clown will get a bloody fantastic surprise. The beloved burn-out character will star in a parody of Stephen King’s It in an episode punnily titled “Not It”, with Krusty taking on a parody role of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Pennywise, meet Krusty. Krusty, meet Pennywise. Now we aren’t strangers.

When Will The New Episodes Be Released?
Lou, cancel the prom! The release dates for these two episodes have finally been set in stone! “Not It,” will premiere on October 23, while “Treehouse of Horror XXXIII” will premiere on October 30 (aka Halloween Eve). Though every moment we live without the new episodes is agony, that gives audiences just enough time to binge-watch the previous thirty-three Treehouse of Horror episodes leading up to the spooky Simpsons release, which rounds out at about 14 hours total.

Where Can You Watch the New Treehouse of Horror Episodes?
Well not on Candy Apple Island. As legend tells, the Treehouse of Horror episodes will continue to air on Fox during The Simpsons’ regularly scheduled slot, Sundays at 8/7c. But, if you’re looking to view the terror-ridden episodes outside of regularly televised timeslots, you’ll be able to catch the Treehouse tales the day after they air via the online streaming platform Hulu.

Where Can You Watch Past Treehouse of Horror Episodes?
Seasons 1 through 33 can be found on Disney+, though you’ll have to locate each episode individually in each season or in the curated The Simpsons “Horror” selection. In order to make your journey a bit easier, we’ve compiled this easy-to-navigate list. Every episode of Treehouse of Horror is a nod to well-known and lesser-known horror films, series, novels and short stories, making it an easter egg hunt for fans of the horror genre.

Season 2, Episode 3 – Released in 1990 and titled simply Treehouse of Horror, this first installment of the horror-themed episodes parodied Poltergeist, The Amityville Horror, The Twilight Zone’s “To Serve Man” and Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven”.

The Twilight Zone’s “It’s a Good Life” grants Bart new-found power over his city, and Homer donates his brain in a rendition of the horror classic Frankenstein.

Season 4, Episode 5 – “You killed Zombie Flanders!” This 1992 iteration pokes fun at the cult classic horror film Night of the Living Dead, as well as doing a segment based on the then newly-released Child’s Play.

Season 5, Episode 5 – With Conan O’Brien added to the writers roster for the fourth edition of Treehouse of Horror, the anthology parodies another horror anthology, 1970s Night Gallery, in addition to painting quite the horrifying picture of Mr. Burns in the cartoons’ take on the wildly popular Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
