Tradition is tradition! Syfy is ringing in another New Year with another much-needed Twilight Zone marathon. Here is the 2021-2022 schedule.

Another strange, downright sci-fi year has come and gone. What better way to celebrate 2021’s demise and prepare for what 2022 holds in store than with a heaping dose of Twilight Zone?

The annual Twilight Zone New Year’s Day Marathon is set to continue on SYFY this New Year. The marathon spans three days, from Friday, Dec. 31 at 2:00 a.m., kicking off with The Twilight Zone season 4 episode, “The Parallel” and running until Sunday, Jan. 2 at 5:00 a.m with “He’s Alive.”

The holiday season marks a special time in The Twilight Zone. Serling was born on Christmas Day 1924 and the series has a memorable homage to Miracle on 34th Street with season two’s “The Night of The Meek,” set during Christmas. Outside of his anthology masterpiece, Serling even wrote his own take on A Christmas Carol, as a TV movie featuring Peter Sellers, that was nearly completely forgotten for almost 50 years before it resurfaced on television. We wrote more on that here.

The Twilight Zone Holiday Marathons–first Thanksgiving, then July 4th, and now New Years–have their own history, which we detailed a few years back. The marathon’s most recent home has been SYFY. You can check out the network’s full Twilight Zone Marathon schedule below, as first reported by Shadow & Substance.
