FX is going all out for Halloween, airing the first four episodes of American Horror Story in a special marathon.

On Monday, Oct. 31 beginning at 10 p.m., the Ryan Murphy-Brad Falchuk created horror drama will be broadcast for four hours.

In addition to the Halloween marathon, the first part of a two-hour themed episode -- marking the first appearance by Heroes alum Zachary Quinto -- will air Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 10 p.m. The second part will air the following week at the same time. “It feels like a fall show,” Murphy said of his FX series, showing optimism that the two-parter will have a similar effect to AMC's The Walking Dead.

For its series debut, American Horror Story debuted to 3.2 million total viewers before dropping to 2.46 million in its second week.
