Shudder orders Season 3 of Creepshow
Staff Reporter | On 17, Jun 2020
Season 3 of Creepshow is in the works at Shudder.
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. AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural debuted its revival last autumn, giving subscribers a nostalgic taste of the storytelling that made the 1982 movie from Stephen King and George A. Romero iconic.
“Shudder’s revived anthology of horror is an enjoyably old-fashioned ride,” we wrote in our review.
The second season was set to commence shooting in March in Atlanta, Georgia, but has been on hold until film and television production resumes. Nonetheless, scripts have now been ordered for a third run.
“Creepshow continues to be near and dear to my heart and having the opportunity to continue the legacy by developing season 3 gives me the chance to work with some of the best storytellers and artists in the business. The stories we have in the pipeline for season 2 are even more outrageous, more fun and capture the spirit of what George Romero and Stephen King started in the 80s,” says Nicotero.
“Although season 2 is on pause while we wait until it’s safe to go into production, we wanted to use the time to start work on season 3 scripts to let Greg Nicotero and his amazing team get as far ahead as possible,” adds Shudder GM Craig Engler.
