AMC has officially renewed Eli Roth’s History of Horror for a third season. The six episode season will most likely premiere later this year.
Taking a deep-dive in the history of the genre, Roth has hosted an amazing array of talent during the show’s first two seasons including Stephen King, Jordan Peele, Rob Zombie, Rachel True, and Megan Fox.
For its third outing, the series will include episodes titled “Sinister Psychics,” “Infections,” “Mad Scientists,” “Apocalyptic Horror,” “Sequels That Don’t Suck,” and “Holiday Horror.”
“I’m beyond thrilled to continue this incredible deep dive into horror history with all of these legends, rising stars and fans,” Roth said in a statement. “I’m so thankful to all those who have to come together to celebrate and catalog the genre we love in a show that will play for generations to come. We’ve had the most amazing discussions, and so many older films are being rediscovered through the show and its accompanying podcast. Thank you to AMC, Shudder, my incredible producers, and all the contributors and fans who supported us. We want to make season three our deepest and darkest yet.”
In addition to History of Horror, Shudder has also produced a sort of side-by-side podcast featuring full-length interviews with some of the heavy hitters from the series for those who want to take an even deeper dive into the history of the genre and how it was shaped titled Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut.
Season two of the series took in more than 6 million views which no doubt led to the renewal. All eyes will certainly be on season three to see if Roth and AMC/Shudder can keep the momentum going.
