The Boulet Brothers are having the best year ever because their show Dragula has been renewed for a fifth season on horror streaming service Shudder. It’s only the second season on the network but has become its most-watched show.

“We are so thrilled to be celebrating the monumental success of season 4 with our new partners at Shudder. It has been a roller coaster ride of a season, and we’re still overwhelmed with how engaged and passionate fans and critics have been all season long,” said The Boulet Brothers. “Season 4 is a real triumph for our team, but it’s only the beginning, and we can’t wait to share what we have planned next. We have such sights to show you!”
