Marvel Comics, Jane Austen books, and they’ll soon be chomping on brains in a galaxy far, far away.

This Halloween, Patricia Arquette will face off against a classic undead army in an upcoming episode of Medium. 

Show creator Glenn Gordon Caron said an upcoming Halloween-themed episode will insert Arquette’s character into scenes from George Romero’s original Night of the Living Dead film. It’s part a dream sequence that would not have happened if the show had stayed on NBC.

 Medium jumped to CBS after being cancelled by NBC last season. The move to CBS means the show can now do time-specific episodes, like a George Romero zombie-filled Halloween special, Caron said.

 “The good news is we’re on CBS now, and for the first time in three years … we’re going into the beginning of the season knowing when we’re premiering — in the fall — and doing 22 episodes,” Caron told reporters at the TV Critics Association summer press tour. “As a storyteller, that’s a huge thing, because it means I can say to you that on Halloween, we will be doing thus and so. That’s a luxury we’ve not had for three years.”
   The zombie episode will air the night before Halloween.
