Production has finally begun on season two of Creepshow, Shudder’s anthology series based on the film from the 1980s. Production was postponed earlier this year when much of the country was put under lockdown over concerns with Covid-19.
The six-episode season is set to premiere in 2021.
“I’ve never been happier to get behind the camera as I am today,” showrunner Greg Nicotero said in a statement. “After missing our shoot date in March by just over 48 hours, season 2 of Creepshow hits the ground running as cameras begin to roll. The cast and crew have a level of excitement and enthusiasm I’ve never seen before and it’s inspiring. So many of us in the entertainment industry have been waiting for the day we can begin to do what we do best—to have some fun together creating new worlds, new adventures and new thrills.”
“Season one was a monster hit for us, setting viewership records across the board while becoming the best-reviewed new horror series of 2019,” Shudder’s General Manager, Craig Engler added. “For season 2, Greg Nicotero and his team have outdone themselves with bigger and bolder stories, new incredible creature designs, and clever twists that truly live up to the show’s tagline, ‘The Most Fun You’ll Have Being Scared.'”
In addition to the production announcement, we’ve also received word on four of the segments that will be featured in season two of Creepshow.
Up first is “Shapeshifters Anonymous” Parts One and Two starring Anna Camp (True Blood) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project). The segments were written by Nicotero, based on a story by J.A. Konrath (Last Call) about a cursed man in search of a werewolf support group.
Next, Keith David (The Thing), Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser), and Josh McDermitt (The Walking Dead) will appear in a segment written by Frank Dietz titled “Pesticide” about an exterminator who makes an “infernal bargain.”
And finally, “Model Kid” is written by John Esposito and concerns a boy who turns to monster-building kits to escape his unhappy life.
The first season smashed records across the board for Shudder, and we’ll definitely be tuning in for season two of Creepshow when it arrives next year!
