AMC Reveals ‘Creepshow’ Schedule

The Creep is getting his act together and taking it on the road–to AMC.

The iconic host of the popular anthology horror TV show on Shudder will be introducing his terrifying tales on AMC at 9 p.m. (Eastern time) on Monday evenings from May 4-18, as reported by Deadline.

The streamer plans to air the first season of the successful show to keep horror fans satisfied while they wait for the show’s second season to kick off later in the year.

AMC, which owns Shudder, already boasts the much-viewed The Walking Dead, so adding Creepshow to its horror stable makes all kinds of sense, said executive producer Greg Nicotero.

“Nothing could make me happier,” he said in a statement, “than to continue my creative relationship with AMC by having Creepshow play on AMC Networks.

“This project is truly a labor of love for me and an opportunity for me to continue the legacy of George Romero by continuing the tradition of Creepshow with scary, thrilling and fun tales of suspense and terror.”

Ed Carroll, AMC’s chief operating officer, was high on the project. “We think Creepshow will be successful on AMC, but will also build audiences for the Season 2 launch on Shudder.”

The TV show, which debuted on Shudder in September of last year, is (of course) a continuation of the fan-favorite 1982 film written by horror master Stephen King and directed by the legendary George Romero.

The show’s format highlights two horror stories  per episode. Both King and his son, Joe Hill, have had stories adapted for the show, and several original tales have also been presented during the first season.

Actors featured in Season 1 include David Arquette, Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell and Giancarlo Esposito.
