‘Creepshow’ On Shudder Starts To Shoot Second Season

Shudder’s popular Creepshow horror anthology is moving full speed ahead into its second season even as Season 1 continues to air on the streamer.

Showrunner and executive producer Greg Nicotero this week said production on Season 2–which ground to a halt back in March in the face of the COVID-19 crisis–has resumed with all hands on deck, as reported by comicbook.com.

Nicotero was understandably elated when he made the announcement. “I’ve never been happier to get behind the camera as I am today,” he said in a statement. “After missing our shoot date in March by just over 48 hours, Season 2 of Creepshow hits the ground running as cameras begin to roll.”

Nicotero added that the cast and crew have “a level of excitement and enthusiasm I’ve never seen before, and it’s inspiring. So many of us have been waiting for the day we can begin to do what we do best–to have some fun together creating new worlds, new adventures and new thrills.”

As part of the announcement, some details were revealed about several of the upcoming Season 2 episodes, all of which are being directed by Nicotero. Shapeshifters Anonymous (Parts I and II)–starring Anna Camp and Adam Pally and written by Nicotero–is based on a short story by J.A. Konrath about a werewolf support group. Pesticide–starring Keith David, Ashley Laurence and Josh McDermitt and written by Frank Dietz–follows an exterminator who makes an infernal bargain. Model Kid–written by John Esposito–deals with a 12-year-old monster fan who builds models to escape his unhappy reality.

The first season of Creepshow–based on the classic 1982 movie directed by the legendary George A. Romero–set a viewership record for Shudder and was the best-reviewed new horror series of 2019, according to Shudder general manager Craig Engler.
