Writers, Script Details Revealed For Season 2 Of ‘Creepshow’

While the first season of the popular Creepshow horror anthology is streaming on Shudder and is available on Blu-ray, the show’s head honcho has been letting the cat out of the bag about Season 2.

Greg Nicotero–who acts as executive producer and showrunner for the series–said during a recent interview that most of the second season’s scripts have already been written and directors are being lined up, according to comingsoon.net.

Production has been halted on the upcoming season–due to the COVID-19 pandemic–and no debut date has yet been set, but plans obviously are afoot for further thrills and chills from The Creep.

For starters, Nicotero–who is slated to direct three episodes of Season 2–said several writers from the first season will return to pen scripts for the next go-round. He singled out John Esposito, David Schow, Paul Dini and Stephen Langford as returning screenwriters.

Nicotero revealed that “90 percent” of the new scripts have been written, describing them as “absolutely fantastic”. He added that he has enjoyed contributing to the creative process. “I had a lot more fun developing the stories,” he said. “I’ve written a couple of the scripts myself. And I just finished a script that’s based on a Joe Hill story.”

Nicotero also mentioned Frank Dietz and his script entitled Pesticide, a story that deals with an exterminator “who does some unsavory things and he is, in essence, haunted by some of these creatures that he has killed.”

The first season of Creepshow–based on the classic 1982 Creepshow movie directed by George A. Romero–starred Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito, Tobin Bell, Tricia Helfer, David Arquette, Dana Gould, Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Davison and DJ Qualls.
