Prepare for liftoff as the “Live with Kelly and Ryan” countdown to the Halloween 2021 edition of this viewer favorite has begun. On Friday, Oct. 29, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest will once again set a new standard for Halloween celebrations, bringing the spooky season to life with “Live’s Out of this World Halloween”  (check local listings and on the web at for time and station).


This year’s extravaganza goes boldly where no other talk show has gone before, launching from “outer space” from the show’s own “Boo Origin.” With 40 costumes, “Live” also transforms the latest pop culture trends, including hilarious takes on this year’s most talked-about TV shows “Bridgerton,” “The Queen’s Gambit,” Ted Lasso,” “Squid Game,” “The Masked Singer,” and “Emily in Paris”, a wacky retro spin on the current home workout craze, and more.


In addition, singer, TV personality and host NICK LACHEY will join in “Live’s” Halloween festivities. Viewers can also look forward to surprise celebrity appearances and additional spooktacular treats.


“Live’s” annual audience Halloween costume contest will once again be virtual, and the winner of “Live’s Spooktacular House Contest” will be revealed during the broadcast. “Live” will be giving away approximately $20,000 in prizes.


The official countdown to Halloween begins on Monday, Oct. 25, and continues all week with last-minute face mask costume ideas, DIY Halloween fun and games, spooky decoration ideas, and lookbacks to the most memorable “Live” costumes.


“Live with Kelly and Ryan” is distributed in national syndication by Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. The show is produced by WABC-TV in New York and executive produced by Michael Gelman, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.
