Although the second season of Shudder’s Creepshow has not even completed filming due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Variety is reporting that the streaming service has already ordered up a third season. The series, based on the legendary collaboration between George Romero and Stephen King, made its debut in September of 2019 on Shudder and then had a solid run on AMC.
Shudder’s General Manager, Craig Engler, stated “Although season 2 is on pause while we wait until it’s safe to go into production, we wanted to use this time to start work on season 3 scripts to let Greg Nicotero and his amazing team get as far ahead as possible.” Nicotero describes Creepshow as “near and dear to his heart.” Horror fans know that prior to his massive success with The Walking Dead, Nicotero’s first major job was in Romero’s classic Day of the Dead.
The first season of Creepshow featured genre favorites Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, Jeffrey Combs and David Arquette amongst many other well-known actors/actresses. At this time, there is no scheduled release for the second season of the series, or date when filming will resume. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the latest updates on Creepshow.
