February 18, 2021
Shudder, AMC Networks' premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, announced today from the Television Critics' Association (TCA) Press Tour the renewal of the hit anthology series Creepshow for a third season of six episodes, set to premiere later this year. The renewal comes ahead of the series' season two debut on Shudder and AMC+, the premium streaming bundle, on April 1, with new episodes airing each week. The show will also air on AMC at a later date. Actors Ethan Embry (Grace and Frankie, Sneaky Pete) and Andrew Bachelor, aka King Bach (King Bachelor's Pad, To All the Boys I've Loved Before) will join as guest stars in season three, with more guest stars to be announced. Based on George A. Romero's iconic 1982 movie, Creepshow is executive produced by showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead).

"During our season two production, Shudder was so pleased with what they were seeing that they asked us to roll right into production on a brand-new third season that will feature some of our most ambitious stories yet," said Nicotero. "I'm incredibly thankful to the team at Shudder for the opportunity to continue honoring the genre with more gleefully ghoulish tales over not one, but two new seasons of Creepshow this year."

"Two years ago, Greg Nicotero and his team revived the beloved Creepshow franchise with a spectacular first season followed by two ambitious specials, raising the bar for what a horror anthology series can be," said Craig Engler, Shudder's General Manager. "We're thrilled to bring Shudder members two more seasons this year, with new episodes that are even bigger, better, more shocking, and hilarious, and that truly live up to the show's tag line, 'The most fun you'll ever have being scared.'"


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 successful first season was followed by two specials in 2020, October's A Creepshow Animated Special featuring the voices of Kiefer Sutherland (24) and Joey King (The Kissing Booth) and December's A Creepshow Holiday Special starring Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project).

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; 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; Mitchell Galin is a producer.

Rumor has it that to save on production costs, particularly in the effects and make-up departments that Senator Rick Scott from Florida will be assuming the roll of the Crypt Keeper. Producersare quite excited about this change as the Senator would not require an early call time to the set as zero preparation and make-up would be required to turn him into our living dead host.
