First Season of ‘Creepshow’ Will Air on AMC

Deadline is reporting that the first season of Creepshow will air on AMC just before the second season comes to Shudder.

“There’s absolute crossover between the brand and the content on some of our linear channels and OTT services,” AMC COO Ed Carroll, speaking on its investor call following its financials, said. “We think that [Creepshow] will be successful on AMC but will also then build audiences for the season two launch back on Shudder.”

Season one of Creepshow made its debut on Shudder on September 26, 2019. The horror anthology series consisted of six episodes which featured two different tales per installment. The series attracted a ton of directing talent including Greg Nicotero, John Harrison, Rob Schrab, David Bruckner, Roxanne Benjamin and Tom Savini. Directing wasn’t the only strong suit that Creepshow had, the series attracted quality actors like David Arquette, Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, Giancarlo Esposito, Tricia Helfer and Dana Gould.

Trailer Drops for Season 10 of ‘The Walking Dead’

It’s hard to believe that we’re already coming up on season ten of AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead. I can remember how hyped up I was for the first episode to premiere on Halloween night in 2010. My wife and I made sure that all of the candy was handed out to the trick ‘r treaters and that the popcorn was ready so we could indulge in a brand new zombie world.

Well now it’s 2019 and this zombie world ain’t so brand new anymore. Hell, there are only two characters remaining from season one and they weren’t even “main characters” from the start; though it’s safe to say that Daryl and Carol certainly became favorites as time went on. read more
