Back in March, Shudder announced production on the second season of their hit original horror anthology series Creepshow was halted indefinitely due to the ongoing global health crisis. Now, the streaming service and showrunner Greg Nicotero have revealed filming is officially underway on the six-episode second season which will premiere exclusively on Shudder in 2021.
“I’ve never been happier to get behind the camera as I am today,” Nicotero shared in a statement. “After missing our shoot date in March by just over 48 hours, Season Two of Creepshow hits the ground running as cameras begin to roll. The cast and crew have a level of excitement and enthusiasm I’ve never seen before and it’s inspiring. So many of us in the entertainment industry have been waiting for the day we can begin to do what we do best — to have some fun together creating new worlds, new adventures, and new thrills.”
“Season one was a monster hit for us, setting viewership records across the board while becoming the best-reviewed new horror series of 2019,” said Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager. “For season 2, Greg Nicotero and his team have outdone themselves with bigger and bolder stories, new incredible creature designs, and clever twists that truly live up to the show’s tagline, ‘The Most Fun You’ll Have Being Scared’.”
Shudder has also revealed early details about four of season two’s segments, including guest cast members, which will be directed by Nicotero. They are as follows:
- Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) will star in “Shapeshifters Anonymous” Parts 1 and 2, written by Nicotero, based on a short story by J.A. Konrath (Last Call) about an unlucky soul who finds himself in need of a werewolf support group.
- Keith David (The Thing), Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser) and Josh McDermitt (The Walking Dead) will star in “Pesticide,” written by Frank Dietz (I Hate Kids), in which an exterminator makes an infernal bargain.
- “Model Kid,” written by returning Creepshow writer John Esposito (season one’s “Night of the Paw”), is about a 12-year-old monster fan who turns to hand-built model kits to escape his unhappy reality.
