Lifetime is going all-in with a marathon of Cheerleader-themed movies for Halloween. The network has six movies on the schedule, and they are centered around the villainous side of cheerleading. The event is called Fear the Cheer and a new movie will air every Saturday and Sunday beginning October 3rd through October 18th at 8pm EST/PST.
The lineup includes “Dying to Be a Cheerleader,” “Cheer Squad Secrets,” “Cheer Camp Killer,” “Cheerleader Abduction,” “The Wrong Cheerleader Coach” featuring Vivica A. Fox and Tara Reid, and “Who is Killing the Cheerleaders?”.
Cheerleaders have been popular on Lifetime in the past. In 2019, the fall schedule included “Cheer! Rally! Kill!“, which reached 9.8M total viewers in their premiere telecasts.
Lifetime added, “Continuing its celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Lifetime Original Movie, Lifetime brings the spirit early with re-airings of classic Lifetime cheerleading movies from September 26th to 27th, including “The Wrong Cheerleader,” “The Cheerleader Murders,” “Undercover Cheerleader,” and “Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal.”
