As fans of the supernatural series know, ABC cancelled the new Night Stalker after just six episodes in early November 2005. Fans of the series had little hope of ever seeing the unaired episodes — until now.
This remake of the original 1974 cult-favorite series (Kolchak: The Night Stalker) focuses on crime reporter Carl Kolchak and partner Perri Reed as they reported on supernatural stories at a LA-based newspaper. Working together, they investigate a sequence of strange murders which to the murder of Kolchak’s wife — a murder that Kolchak is suspected of committing.
ABC recently announced that it is making the three previously unreleased episodes of Night Stalker available via for digital download via Apple’s iTunes Music Store. In keeping with the cost of many other available shows, each episode will be sold for $1.99. The first seven episodes (six aired episodes and one that was scheduled for network broadcast but did not air) were already available. (Download Night Stalker on iTunes)
The three newly released Night Stalker episodes are:
Into Night – Two late-night office workers are found dead and mummified and Kolchak searches for the cause before it happens again.
Timeless – Kolchak and Reed cover a strange murder — one that bears a resemblance to similar deaths that have occurred every 35 years since the L.A. Beacon newspaper was founded.
What’s the Frequency, Kolchak? – Our hero is kidnapped by a man who accuses Kolchak of sending him secret messages through his newspaper articles.
