Greg Nicotero’s Creepshow renewed for Season 2

Shudder’s Creepshow series has been renewed for Season 2

Greg Nicotero’s horror anthology series Creepshow has been renewed for Season 2, according to Slash Film.

For those yet to check out Creepshow, the show is based on the Stephen King and George A Romero films of the same name released in 1982 and 1987. The first season is made up of six episodes, with two horror stories per episode.

The show is produced by Cartel, Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment and Striker Entertainment, with Nicotero serving as showrunner and executive producer.

It sounds as though Shudder is thrilled with the impact the series has made after just one season. In a statement, Shudder GM Craig Engler said: “Creepshow has met every expectation we had for Shudder’s first original scripted series and then some, with record numbers across the board. Greg Nicotero and his team delivered an amazing show that’s unlike anything else on TV and we’re thrilled and delighted to bring it back for another season.”

Nicotero added: “For me, Creepshow has been a true labour of love. To be able to pay tribute to George A. Romero’s visionary project and have the show so embraced by fans everywhere is humbling to this horror kid from Pittsburgh. I couldn’t be more pleased and look forward to continuing the series with more ghoulish delight.”

The first season of the show stars Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito, Tobin Bell, Tricia Helfer, David Arquette, Dana Gould, Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Davison and DJ Qualls.
