Production is officially underway on the six-episode second season of Shudder’s Creepshow.
The horror anthology series, which is showrun by Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead), is based on George A. Romero’s classic 1982 film of the same name. Production takes place in Atlanta Georgia, and all appropriate safety guidelines and protocols are being followed.
Four of this season’s segments will be directed by Nicotero himself. The two-part “Shapeshifters Anonymous,” written by Nicotero, based on a short story by J.A. Konrath, will follow an unlucky soul who finds himself in need of a werewolf support group. Anna Camp (True Blood) and Adam Pally (Sonic the Hedgehog) will star. Meanwhile, in “Pesticide,” written by Frank Dietz and starring Keith David (The Thing), Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser), and Josh McDermitt (The Walking Dead), an exterminator makes an infernal bargain. And in “Model Kid,” written by returning Creepshow writer John Esposito (“Night of the Paw”), a 12-year-old monster fan turns to hand-built model kits to escape his unhappy reality.
“I’ve never been happier to get behind the camera as I am today,” Nicotero said in a statement. “After missing our shoot date in March by just over 48 hours, season 2 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 two of Creepshow will premiere exclusively on Shudder in 2021. We’ll bring you more casting and production details as we hear them!
