The ’80s are back and bigger than ever on IFC. The network recently partnered with Night Flight, the cult late night series that originally aired from 1981 to 1989.

IFC is reviving the pop culture show as a short form program, showcasing the most memorable moments from the original Night Flight library, including iconic interviews and performances from 80s era all-stars. Premiering Friday, April 20 at 1 AM (Friday night/Saturday morning) each 15-minute episode of Night Flight on IFC will bring back classic guest stars such as Ozzy Osbourne, David Bowie, KISS, The Sex Pistols and even Gumby. 18 episodes of Night Flight will air this year.

To honor the return of Night Flight, IFC is hosting a 90-minute screening event on Thursday, April 19th at 7:00PM at Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse , where they’ll be showing a collection of the series’ best moments coming to IFC’s air followed by a Q&A with original Night Flight Creator and Producer Stuart S. Shapiro. Tickets are available HERE.

  1. Night Flight was the most “grazable” cable programming I can ever recall seeing. It was a curated smorgasbord of interesting free-form video. Best of all, the three hour block was repeated for handy time shifting if something was a “keeper.” Showing the old programming has some cachet, but shouldn’t they be making a new Night Flight for this modern era? Or are we too far down the U-Tube rabbit hole to emerge again?
