AMC Orders Second Season Of ‘Eli Roth’s History Of Horror’

If you love horror stories (and the movies made from them) and want to learn more about their eerie origins, here’s some good news: AMC is bringing back Eli Roth’s History of Horror for a second season.

Roth–the filmmaker/actor who came to the attention of horror fans with such movies as Cabin Fever (2003) and Hostel (2005)–will again pick the brains of some of the genre’s greatest names starting Oct. 10 at 10 p.m. (ET), as reported by

The show, according to reports, will pick up seamlessly where the first season left off two years ago, with Roth delving into various aspects of the horror scene and what the future may hold for the genre and its fans.

This second season, as explained, will explore the ins and outs of classic horror films and cult favorites, as well as the people and personalities that bring them to life. Roth will lead a cast of writers, directors, actors and special-effects wizards in discussions about a wealth of topics.

The upcoming shows will boast such luminaries as Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Rob Zombie, Edgar Wright, Roger Corman, John Landis and many other horror headliners.

Roth said in a statement that he is “so thrilled” to work on this second season on AMC. “In Season 1, we had the most incredible conversations with the top creators in the field who really helped fans around the world appreciate the horror genre in a new light,” he said.

The director/producer added he is looking forward to “going even deeper in Season 2, bringing out the A-listers to share their stories with everyone for all time, and adding more and more films to the canon. AMC is the perfect network to partner with on a passion project like this,” Roth said.

So, kick off the Halloween season on Oct. 10 with Eli Roth’s History of Horror on AMC, and (of course) keep reading Horror News Network for all the latest developments concerning everything horror.
