Shudder renewed the horror anthology series Creepshow for a third season ahead of the second season premiere. The announcement was made at AMC’s virtual TCA winter press tour. According to Deadline, the third season will have six episodes scheduled to premiere later this year.
Creepshow is based on the 1982 George A. Romero film of the same name. The Walking Dead producer and protégé of Romero, Greg Nicotero developed the series for the AMC streaming service Shudder. The production team adapted works from Stephen King, Joe Hill and others as well as writing a few original stories. The first season featured guest stars including Giancarlo Esposito, Tobin Bell, Tricia Helfer, and Cailey Fleming. The second season will premiere in April and will include guest stars Josh McDermitt, Ali Larter, Ted Raimi and many more. AMC announced Ethan Embry and Andrew Bachelor aka King Bach as featured guest stars for season three.
Nicotero released the following statement after the announcement. “During our season two production, Shudder was so pleased with what they were seeing that they asked us to roll right into production on a brand-new third season that will feature some of our most ambitious stories yet. I’m incredibly thankful to the team at Shudder for the opportunity to continue honoring the genre with more gleefully ghoulish tales over not one, but two new seasons of Creepshow this year.”
Creepshow season two will premiere on April 1 on Shudder and AMC+.
