The following is a list of the 93 episodes of the television program The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, which is a continuation of the program Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1955–60). The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, like its predecessor, is an anthology series in the thriller genre. NBC renamed the program when they extended its running-time from about 25 minutes to about 50 minutes. Both programs were hosted by Alfred Hitchcock, whose directorial work in thriller films is extremely influential. Hitchcock directed only one episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour: "I Saw The Whole Thing" (Season 1, episode 4).

The Alfred Hitchcock Hour premiered on 20 September 1962, three months after the conclusion of the seventh and final season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. In its new incarnation with a 50-minute running time, the show lasted for three seasons. NBC broadcast the final episode on 10 May 1965.
