Shudder, AMC Networks' premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, today announced the start of production on the highly-anticipated second season of its hit series Creepshow in Atlanta, Georgia. The anthology series, which shattered all Shudder records when it debuted last October, is executive produced by showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) and based on George A. Romero's iconic 1982 movie. The six-episode second season will premiere exclusively on Shudder in 2021. The show is following all safety guidelines and protocols in accordance with SAG-AFTRA, DGA, IATSE, TEAMSTERS, CDC and state and local guidance.

"I've never been happier to get behind the camera as I am today," said Nicotero. "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 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 also revealed initial details about four of this season's segments, which will be directed by Greg Nicotero. Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) will star in "Shapeshifters Anonymous" Parts 1 and 2, written by Greg 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; and "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. Additional titles, casting and directors will be announced soon.

In its first season, Creepshow smashed records for Shudder in number of viewers, new subscriber sign-ups and total minutes streamed to become the most watched program in Shudder history, followed by a successful run on AMC. The show was a hit with critics as well as fans as one of 2019's best-reviewed new genre series, with a 97% Fresh rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes(R). The inaugural season starred David Arquette, Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, Big Boi, Jeffrey Combs, Kid Cudi, Bruce Davison, Giancarlo Esposito, Dana Gould, Tricia Helfer and DJ Qualls and featured adaptations of stories by Stephen King, Joe Hill, Joe R. Lansdale, Josh Malerman and others.

Shudder's Creepshow is produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment: Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, and Eric Woods are executive producers and Geoff Silverman and Anthony Fankhauser are co-executive producers for the Cartel; Greg Nicotero and Brian Witten are executive producers and Julia Hobgood is a co-executive producer for Monster Agency Productions; Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson and Jordan Kizwani are executive producers for Taurus Entertainment; Russell Binder is executive producer and Marc Mostman co-executive producer for Striker Entertainment.

I might give it another shot, then.  I found that first episode pretty boring, and tuned out like I said.  Going back 31 years, Tales from the Crypt started very strong with "The Man Who Was Death," and while not always consistent, that show set a pretty high bar for anthology horror on cable tv.

Well considering there really isnt any more anthology horror on tv out there aside from this, its the best available. It did have some classic retellings which i enjoyed. Brought back some memories like monkeys paw and such.

I enjoyed the first season. It wasnt like omg amazing and it seemed low budget but it was still rather enjoyable overall. Im looking forward to season 2.

I know it's an anthology, but I'm still gonna ask if it got better after the first episode, because I tuned out.
