Shudder has a lot more horror stories to tell: AMC's own streaming service has renewed the anthology series Creepshow for the third season, as TVLine has learned.
The third season of Creepshow will have six episodes, and production of the new episodes is already underway for a premiere later this year. The second season will be released on Thursday April 1st on both Shudder and the premium streaming bundle AMC +.
"During our season two production, Shudder was so pleased with what they saw that they asked us to step right into production for a brand new season three that will feature some of our most ambitious stories yet," said the executive producer and showrunner Greg Nicotero. "I'm incredibly grateful to the Shudder team for the opportunity to continue to celebrate the genre with more upbeat stories about not just one but two new seasons of Creepshow this year."
Ethan Embry (Grace and Frankie) and Andrew Bachelor (King Bachelor & # 39; s Pad) were selected for the season three episodes. More guest stars will be announced later.
In the field of anthology, Shudder has also ordered a scripted anthology series in which black horror stories are shown by black directors and screenwriters. The Untitled Project will premiere later this year and will feature new work from both established and emerging voices. Attached authors currently include Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes, writer and illustrator Ezra C. Daniels, writer Victor LaValle, and journalist Al Letson.
The show is also supported by Robin Means Coleman, whose book Horror Noire: Blacks in American Horror Films from the 1890s to Today inspired Shudder's 2019 documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror. Phil Nobile Jr., Kelly Ryan, and Ashlee Blackwell, who served as producers on the document, will also consult on the anthology.
"When we first saw the first excerpt from our Horror Noire documentary, we realized there was a huge untapped reservoir of great black horror stories to be told and an extremely talented group of writers and directors ready to deliver tell, "said Craig Engler, Shudder & # 39; s general manager. "While the documentary looked back at the history of black horror, this anthology is a showcase for the future and will introduce fantastic new stories and characters to audiences."
