Below is a list of serials that were issued from studios in the United States and the year that they were issued.

As films developed, most studios didn't think that US audiences would sit for over an hour even though European studio were already producing full length feature films. The US studio would cut the movie into pieces and release the pieces on different days.

NOTICE: the worm that hit us in December destroyed all the individual records that we had on serials. We are going to attach these directly to our database to show any posters instead.

All pre-1929 serials are silent.
Titles in parenthesis are AKA'S
