The UK’s BBC Three has given the greenlight to a new horror-comedy series titled Wrecked. The show is created by Euston Films and written by Ryan J. Brown, winner of the 2016 BAFTA New Writing Prize for We Are Your Children.
“The six-part series is set aboard a mega cruise ship. It follows 19-year-old new recruit Jamie as he joins the crew in search of his missing sister. She was working aboard the same vessel on a previous tour and never made it home. Jamie is initiated into cruise life and gets a crash course on the teen tribes within the staff who party hard and remain oblivious to the bloodthirsty murders taking place on board. Jamie is forced to turn detective and uncover the sinister truth.”
“In ‘Wrecked,’ the kills are brutal, the laughs are loud, and the heartfelt moments land with real candor,” Brown said in a statement. “I wanted to create a piece of genre entertainment that had the savvy teen sharpness of ‘Scream,’ the unsettling atmosphere of ‘The Shining’ and the strange upstairs, downstairs mythology of ‘Cabin in the Woods.’ At its core, ‘Wrecked’ is a tense coming-of-age story about a lost, gay kid from Sheffield propelled into uncharted waters of escalating paranoia and self-discovery.”
Wrecked is set to begin filming later this year in Northern Ireland. There is no word yet on casting. iHorror will keep you posted on the latest news as it becomes available!

‘Solar Opposites: Halloween Special’ Trailer Takes the Series into the Spooky Season
Solar Opposites has dropped a trailer for its Halloween Special and it looks like a blast. The Justin Roiland series is a nice change up from the sci-fi antics of Rick and Morty, but still has a lot of the same voices and debauchery. The Halloween episode takes the extraterrestrial family down a path of the macabre and even takes them into hell itself.
The synopsis for Solar Opposites season 3 goes like this:
Co-created by Justin Roiland (“Rick & Morty”) and Mike McMahan (“Rick & Morty”, “Star Trek: Lower Decks”), “Solar Opposites” centers around a team of four aliens who are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love TV, junk food and fun stuff. In season three, this alien team strives to be less of a team and more of a family team.
Solar Opposites: Halloween Special arrives on Hulu beginning October 3.
First Trailer For ‘The Last of Us’ is All About Brutal Survival
The first trailer for The Last of Us has finally arrived and it doesn’t let you down in the least. The hit video game series of the same name has given us some truly brutal survival in a savage post-apocolyptic world.
The fact that Chernobyl creator, Craig Mazin is in charge of bringing this brutal world to life is already a sign that we are in the best hands possible. It’s also great to see that the series is taking what existed in the game and just recreating that world and its many beautifully cinematic scenes. If it isn’t broken don’t fix it. I wish more filmmakers would do the same.
The synopsis for The Last of Us goes like this:
Set in the post-apocalyptic United States, the game tells the story of survivors Joel and Ellie as they work together to survive their westward journey across what remains of the country to find a possible cure for the modern fungal plague that has nearly decimated the entire human race.
The Last of Us will arrive on HBO Max beginning in 2023.
