Shudder orders Creepshow Halloween special
James R | On 27, Sep 2020
Creepshow will return to Shudder for a Halloween special this year.
Exec produced by showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead), Creepshow is Shudder’s first hour-long scripted series and shattered all Shudder records when it debuted last October, becoming its most watched programme. The second season was set to commence shooting in March in Atlanta, Georgia, but was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, as production resumes on that sophomore run, Shudder is already looking to the future, with a third run ordered and a Halloween special also on the way.
The special will be an animated one-off, featuring two tales. Survivor Type, based on the short story by Stephen King and adapted by Nicotero, stars Kiefer Sutherland (24, Designated Survivor) as a man determined to stay alive alone on a deserted island no matter what the cost. Twittering from the Circus of the Dead, based on the short story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale, stars Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act) as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth.
