Creepshow, Shudder’s breakout hit based on the concept from the 1982 film by Stephen King and George A. Romero, has officially been renewed for a second season!
The anthology series with Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) executive producing and serving as showrunner has been a huge hit for the streaming service with its blend of classic visuals and solid stories by some of the best writers in the industry.
“Creepshow has met every expectation we had for Shudder’s first original scripted series and then some, with record numbers across the board,” Shudder GM Craig Engler in a press release. “Greg Nicotero and his team delivered an amazing show that’s unlike anything else on TV and we’re thrilled and delighted to bring it back for another season.”
“For me, Creepshow has been a true labor of love,” Nicotero added. “To be able to pay tribute to George A. Romero’s visionary project and have the show so embraced by fans everywhere is humbling to this horror kid from Pittsburgh. I couldn’t be more pleased and look forward to continuing the series with more ghoulish delight.”
Stephen King, himself, has praised the series for its innovative storytelling. The series debuted with an adaptation of King’s short story “Gray Matter” with Tobin Bell and Adrienne Barbeau in the pitch-perfect adaptation. Barbeau, of course, starred in the 1982 classic.
The season finale of the series is set to air tomorrow night, October 31, 2019.
While some of the episodes have been slightly uneven, there was certainly a lot to love and it will be interesting to see what new tales they have to tell in a second season of Creepshow!
