Season 2 of the well-received Shudder horror series Creepshow is gaining steam as we head into the final stretch of this terror-filled year of 2020.
The anthology series–based on the classic 1982 Creepshow film from director George A. Romero and writer Stephen King (you may have heard of those two gentlemen)–just recently restarted production in Atlanta after a sucker punch from COVID-19 back in March, and is fleshing out its roster of actors in a big way, as reported by comicbook.com.
Creepshow–led by showrunner and executive producer Greg Nicotero of The Walking Dead fame–this week added Marilyn Manson (Sons of Anarchy), Ali Larter (The Rookie), Iman Benson (BlackAF), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Barbara Crampton (Re–Animator), C. Thomas Howell (Criminal Minds), Denise Crosby (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Breckin Meyer (Robot Chicken), Ted Raimi (The Evil Dead), Kevin Dillon (Entourage) and Eric Edelstein (We Bare Bears) to the cast.
Shudder also announced details about several segments of the six-episode Season 2, which will debut sometime next year. These episodes–all helmed by Nicotero–include “Shapeshifters Anonymous” (Parts I and II), about an unlucky soul who seeks the help of a werewolf support group; “Pesticide”, which deals with an exterminator who makes an infernal bargain; and “Model Kid”, which follows a 12-year-old monster fan who turns to hand-built model kits to escape his unhappy reality. Additional information about other episodes will follow soon.
The first season of Creepshow set a viewership record for Shudder, and was the best-reviewed new horror series of 2019, according to Shudder general manager Craig Engler.
