It can have escaped no-one' s attention that the horror genre has become one of the most popular genres of TV drama, with the global success and fandom surrounding The Walking Dead, Supernatural, and Stranger Things. Horror has, of course, always had a truly international reach, and nowhere is this more apparent than on television, as explored in this provocative new collection that looks at series from across the globe and considers how horror manifests in different cultural and broadcast/streaming contexts. Gathering expertise from established scholars and new voices, Global TV Horror examines historical and contemporary TV horror from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Iran, Japan, Spain, New Zealand, USA, and the UK. This collection deepens the discussion of television horror by offering fresh perspectives, examining new shows, and excavating new cultural histories, rendering what has become so familiar-horror on television-unfamiliar yet again.
