There's just something special about watching the Twilight films on regular television programming, am I right?
After making its first TV stop on Showtime then hitting FX next, Twilight is finally heading to basic cable at ABC Family.
ABC Family will premiere Twilight for the first time on Saturday, Feb. 9 with back-to-back showings at 7 p.m. EST and 9:30 p.m. EST. An encore will follow for what is being termed "Twilight Weekend" with showings on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. EST and 9:30 p.m. EST.
To usher in the release, ABC Family issued this fun little take on the story synopsis:
In the supernatural romantic dramaTwilight, the new girl in town, Bella (Kristen Stewart), falls for the hottest guy in school – not knowing the mysterious, elusive Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is actually part of a vampire family, and sworn enemy of Bella’s childhood friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner). Their newfound love opens Bella’s eyes to a secret world, but also puts her in unimaginable danger.
A video preview for the station's upcoming "Twilight Weekend" is attached.
